The Dragon & the Damsel Today!

Today’s the day for Rafael and Ceara’s story!

The Dragon & the Damsel

The Dragon and the Damsel, book three of the Blood Brothers trilogy of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

A mercenary convinced that each man must see to his own survival first, Rafael has learned to savor the moment and its pleasures. He is interested solely in conquest and coin, not any promise of the future—until an alluring maiden challenges him, defying him to stake a claim. Rafael cannot resist Ceara with her flame-red hair and keen wits, but their cat-and-mouse game takes a dangerous turn when Ceara is stolen by her kin. Rafael cannot stand aside when the damsel’s survival is at risk—though if she has stolen his shielded heart, she must never know of his weakness…

Ceara fled an arranged marriage, determined to wed for love or not at all. A horsewoman and huntress herself, she has encountered no man worthy of her affection—until she matches wits with Rafael, with his flashing eyes and seductive touch. She knows the handsome warrior seeks only one prize from her, but hopes to steal his heart. When she is captured and compelled to return to her betrothed, she is thrilled that Rafael lends chase. When he claims her as his own bride, Ceara dares to hope for more than a marriage of convenience.

But Rafael appears to be interested solely in conquest and passion, and their match becomes a battle of wills. Will Ceara be cast aside when her newfound spouse is offered the prize he desires above all else? Warrior and damsel, can these two wounded souls learn to surrender the truth of their hearts—before their union is shattered forever?

My Kindle Unlimited Plan

The Wolf & the Witch, book one of the Blood Brothers trilogy of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

As many of you know, my medieval romances have come out of KDP Select and are now available at all portals again. The two exceptions are The Wolf & the Witch and The Hunter & the Heiress. Both of these books finish their current terms in KU in November, and will be republished at all portals then.

This means that The Dragon & the Damsel won’t be going into KDP Select in the near future, nor will The Scot & the Sorceress immediately after publication. I may enroll the entire Blood Brothers series in KDP Select at some future point in time, but not right now. After crunching the numbers, it’s clear that having my books available at all portals is a more successful strategy for me. I actually expected the opposite to be true, but the only way to find out for sure was to give it a try.

Having the books in wide distribution means that you can anticipate a sale on The Wolf & the Witch, probably in the new year, to welcome new readers to the series while book #4 is on pre-order. It also means that I’m going to try something new in February and that the publication date for S&S has moved to May. Stay tuned for details.

I also moved out the Masquerade of the Marchioness to December to give me a chance to catch my breath. 🙂

Once all my books are published at all the portals again – with updated interiors and shiny new links here on the website – I’ll be able to focus on writing more new books. I’m really looking forward to that. It’s been a busy year for updates.

The Spanish editions of The Champions of St. Euphemia

The Spanish editions of four of the Champions of St. Euphemia medieval romances have finished their term in KDP Select and are now available at all portals again. The Spanish edition of The Crusader’s Bride (La novia del caballero de las Cruzadas) was never enrolled in KDP Select.

These books are also available in trade paperback editions and I’ve added more buy links to the landing pages.

The Christmas Conquest, book one of the Ladies' Essential Guide to the Art of Seduction series of Regency romances by Claire Delacroix, Italian edition

Questo matrimonio era stato organizzato senza che l’amore facesse parte dei piani…

Rhys Bettencourt, barone Trevelaine, aveva tutte le intenzioni di evitare la maledizione della sua famiglia: il matrimonio combinato con una semplice ragazza, in cerca di fortuna, ma in grado garantire la nascita di un erede. Dopo tutto, le amate mogli dei Bettencourt morivano sempre di parto. Ma tutto ciò era senza tener conto della pragmatica Catherine che finì con il sabotare il piano del marito rubandogli il cuore. L’unico modo per Rhys di proteggerla era negare a entrambi la soddisfazione fisica, contro la propria concupiscenza.

Catherine Carruthers si accontentò di sposarsi per motivi pragmatici accettando un matrimonio combinato per compiacere la sua famiglia. Due anni dopo, però, Catherine è certa che l’affascinante aristocratico marito si sia pentito della sua scelta e che il suo matrimonio non sarà mai più tale. Accetterà, quindi, un invito per Natale a Manor Rockmorton per decidere se lasciare Rhys e tornare alla casa paterna. Al suo arrivo, però, Catherine, nella sua stanza, scopre alcune pagine di consigli sulla seduzione e Rhys che è deciso a convincerla a restare. Il loro matrimonio potrà essere salvato?

Armata di informazioni e con poco da perdere, Catherine intraprenderà una campagna di seduzione a cui Rhys non potrà resistere, pur temendo per il destino di Catherine nel caso cedesse alla tentazione. Stretto tra l’amore e la maledizione, riuscirà Rhys a trovare un modo per tenere la sua amata moglie al sicuro al suo fianco?

Questa edizione include l’epilogo bonus Gioielli di Natale.
