Today, through September 18, my medieval romance The Countess is free at all portals! The Countess is book 4 of the Bride Quest series, but the Bride Quest is actually two linked trilogies: you should read each trilogy in order, but you can start with book 1 or book 4.
Driven from her late husband’s estate, Countess Eglantine de Crevy fled to wildest Scotland to claim a castle, only to find a ruin—and a clan chieftain standing guard. Kinbeath was hers, she declared, vowing to rebuild the manor and launch a bride quest so her daughters could marry for love. But Duncan MacLaren had devised a bride quest of his own, swearing to win the land—and the fiery countess—in a war of sweet seduction…
Eglantine declared she would never be captured by this barbarian. Yet Duncan awakened passions she had never known before. She promised to fight him with every weapon at her command even as he vowed to woo her for a year and a day—and make her his pagan bride.
Each thought Kinbeath the prize the most desired, a prize to be won at any price. Until passion turned to love, and the chieftain found himself fighting for the heart and hand of the woman he was born to possess.
“Master storyteller Claire Delacroix has done it again with this marvelous medieval romance. The setting is realistic, and her beautifully written prose is sexy, funny, charming and totally satisfying. The Countess is a keeper!”
This weekend, the ebook of The Beauty Bride, book one of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances, is free at Amazon! The book and the series are also enrolled in KDP Select, which means you can read the whole series free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription. The sale on book one is from May 25 to May 29, but the clock runs on Seattle time, so don’t wait until the last minute!
More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love…The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.
Lady Madeline’s heart is not for sale…especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline’s hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird’s command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her.
She does not expect this taciturn man to woo her with fanciful stories, much less that each of his enthralling tales will reveal a scar upon his shielded soul. She never imagines that a man like Rhys could imperil her own heart while revealing so little of his own feelings. When Rhys’ past threatens his future, Madeline takes a leap of faith. She dares to believe him innocent—and risks her own life to pursue a passion more priceless than the rarest gem.

Gaston battled for duty and honor—until Ysmaine tempted him to fight for her love…
When the Templar knight Gaston unexpectedly inherits his family estate, he knows he needs a wife and heir. A marriage of convenience to a widow in need of assistance is a practical solution and the newly-wed pair leave Jerusalem, entrusted with the delivery of a package for the Templars. Away from the life he has known for years, Gaston quickly realizes that little is following his plan—especially his mysterious wife, whose presence awakens an unexpected fire…
Twice widowed, Ysmaine doubts she will ever wed again, let alone have a marriage of merit—until she is charmed by the gruff knight intent upon defending her. Ysmaine weds again, not only by her own choice but to a warrior whose honor she admires. She is determined to show Gaston that marriage has more to offer them both than an heir, but first she must win the trust of the wary man she has impulsively wed…
Neither realize that Gaston has been entrusted with the treasure of the Templars—much less that someone in their small party is intent upon claiming the prize at any cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, can Gaston dare to trust his new bride? Can Ysmaine convince Gaston to confide what he knows? Can they solve the riddle together before the villain’s plan comes to fruition and all is lost?
The Crusader’s Bride is currently enrolled in Kindle Unlimited and available exclusively at Amazon.
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish, The Princess, book one of my Bride Quest series of medieval romances, is FREE March 16 to 19, Seattle time. This book is set in medieval Ireland, which makes it the perfect choice for some lucky reading.
Princess Brianna of Tullymullagh is determined to marry only for love—until her father’s holding is conquered and the king decrees that she must wed one of the victor’s sons. Thinking she can outwit this condition, Brianna issues a challenge: the son who brings her a gift that makes her laugh will win her hand.
Thus begins the Bride Quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin.
Burke and Rowan, knights both, ride out on Brianna’s quest, each intent upon triumph. Only Luc refuses to participate, for he knows that a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior like himself. Brianna is not inclined to accept his refusal—she tempts him and awakens his slumbering senses with her alluring beauty and her sweet kisses. Luc has sworn to lay down his sword forever—until he is the sole one who can defend the fair maiden who has claimed his shielded heart.

Más apreciadas que el oro son las Joyas de Kinfairlie, y solo los más dignos pueden luchar por su amor… El señor de Kinfairlie tiene hermanas solteras, cada una de las cuales es una joya por derecho propio. Y él no tiene más remedio que verlas casarse a toda prisa.
El corazón de Lady Madeline no está a la venta… especialmente para un notorio forajido como Rhys FitzHenry. Sin embargo, la mano de Madeline se ha vendido, nada menos que a este guerrero cansado de la batalla con un precio por su cabeza. Una doncella más obediente podría ceder al mando del señor y aceptar dócilmente su destino, pero Madeline nunca ha sido obediente. Ella decide huir, aunque nunca cree que Rhys la perseguirá.
Ella no espera que este hombre reservado la corteje con historias fantásticas, y mucho menos que cada una de sus fascinantes historias revele una cicatriz en su alma protegida. Ella nunca imaginó que un hombre como Rhys podría poner en peligro su propio corazón al revelar tan poco de sus propios sentimientos. Cuando el pasado de Rhys amenaza su futuro, Madeline da un salto de fe. Ella se atreve a creerle inocente y arriesga su propia vida para perseguir una pasión más invaluable que la gema más rara.
