I’m updating the book interiors in both the ebook and print editions, and also revising the copy for each book. This is in the works right now—I’ve uploaded the new versions of the first two books, and they should appear at the portals today. I’ll get through the rest of them this weekend.

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix in audioIf you’ve already purchased any of the ebooks, the new version should be available from your portal of choice as a free update. (The links have remained the same.)

The Crusader's Heart, book two of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, in audioThe audiobook covers have also been updated for The Crusader’s Bride and The Crusader’s Heart. You should also be able to update your cover image, UNLESS you bought the ebook before February 1, 2019 at a portal other than Audible/Amazon.

I also have the print editions to update. Since a new cover requires a new ISBN#, it may take me a week or more to get the new print editions linked to the ebook versions. I’ll let you know when they’re live.

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixGaston battled for duty and honor—until his new wife tempted him to fight for her love.

When the Templar knight Gaston learns that he has inherited his father’s estate in France, he accepts one last quest for the order and agrees to deliver a package to Paris on his way home. A practical man, Gaston knows he has need of a wife and an heir, so when a lovely widowed noblewoman on pilgrimage snares his gaze, he believes he can see matters solved to their mutual convenience.

But Ysmaine is more than a pilgrim enduring bad luck. She has buried two husbands in rapid succession, both of whom died on her nuptial night, and believes herself cursed. Accepting this gruff knight seems doomed to result in his demise, but Gaston is dismissive of her warnings, and Ysmaine finds herself quickly wed again—this time to a man who is not only vital, but determined to survive.

Neither of them realize that Gaston’s errand is one of peril, for the package contains the treasure of the Templars—and some soul, either in their party or pursuing it, is intent upon claiming the prize at any cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, do they dare to trust each other and the love that dawns between them?

All or Nothing, book #4 of the Coxwell series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke (writing as Claire Cross)Some people will do anything for true love — even if they have to fake it.

Jen Maitland had no use for handsome guys with easy charm — until she met Zach. He’s the perfect fake date to end her mother’s matchmaking scheme before it starts. Besides, he’d probably just use her and leave her like her ex-fiancé did. At least that’s what Jen tells herself. The only problem is that Zach isn’t as predictable as he appears…

Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date — only to invite him to her family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile — and he’s betting that he can unravel her mysteries — even if he has to do it over candied yams.

A tofu turkey, a sister who threatens to have Zach’s love-child, the untimely appearance of a knitted avocado — and Zach’s discovery of her real motive — combine to turn Thanksgiving dinner into Jen’s worst nightmare. Zach, on the other hand, has the time of his life. And when he makes Jen smile, he finally finds a commitment he’s willing to make…but persuading Jen to believe him will take everything he’s got.

“Five hearts! Tender, sweet, and a lot of fun. A highly recommended read.”

Since this series is in progress, you’ll receive emails until you’re caught up, then a new email when another book is added to the series. This is going to be a long series!

The guided tour will launch in April 2019, right before the publication of book two in the series, One Knight’s Return.
