The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

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.

The Crusader’s Bride

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 Princess, #1 of The Princess, #1 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

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.

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, German edition

Gaston kämpfte für Pflicht und Ehre … bis Ysmaine ihn dazu verführte, um ihre Liebe zu kämpfen …

Als der Tempelritter Gaston unerwartet den Besitz seiner Familie erbt, weiß er, dass er eine Frau und einen Erben braucht. Eine Vernunftehe mit einer hilfsbedürftigen Witwe erscheint als eine praktische Lösung. Betraut mit dem Überbringen einer Fracht für die Templer, verlässt das frisch vermählte Paar Jerusalem. Das Leben, wie Gaston es seit seiner Jugend gekannt hat, ist vorüber, und er stellt fest, dass nur noch wenig nach Plan verläuft – besonders, was die Beziehung zu seiner geheimnisvollen neuen Frau angeht, deren Gegenwart ein unerwartetes Feuer in ihm schürt …

Zweifach verwitwet, zweifelt Ysmaine daran, dass sie je wieder eine Ehe eingehen wird, schon gar keine, die ihr zum Vorteil gereicht – bis der schroffe Streiter, der sich als ihr Retter entpuppt, ihr Herz erobert. Sie ist entschlossen, Gaston zu beweisen, dass eine Ehe für sie beide mehr bereithält als einen Erben, aber zuerst muss sie das Vertrauen des Mannes gewinnen, den sie so impulsiv geheiratet hat …

Keiner von beiden weiß, dass Gaston ein kostbarer Schatz des Templerordens anvertraut wurde – und dass jemand in ihrer Reisegruppe diese Beute um jeden Preis für sich haben will. Kann Gaston, umgeben von Fremden, es wagen, seiner neuen Frau zu vertrauen? Kann Ysmaine ihn davon überzeugen, ihr anzuvertrauen, was er weiß? Können sie das Rätsel gemeinsam lösen, bevor der Schurke seine Pläne in die Tat umsetzt und alles verloren ist?
