The Runaway Bride Pub Date

I’ve changed the publication date for The Runaway Bride because I’m running behind this fall. You can blame those dragons for distracting me – the new editions of the Dragonfire Novels were a lot more time-consuming than I’d anticipated. I want to ensure I have all the details right in this book, and let my editor have enough time to do her magic, too. So, I’ve moved the pub date for Aoife and Ross’s story to November 27.

Coming in November!
The Runaway Bride, book #2 of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixAoife MacArthur is a beauty and a prize, an heiress who wants to marry for love—but her father has arranged her marriage to Nigel Armstrong, the oldest son and heir of the Hawk of Inverfyre. One look confirms that Nigel will never possess her heart—although his cousin, Ross of Kinfairlie, is another matter. Aoife knows she cannot escape her fate, but yearns for one last adventure: she will flee Inverfyre and hope that Ross will be sent in pursuit. She tells herself that one kiss will be sufficient…

Ross Lammergeier is a mercenary with a blade for hire, for he has not the coin to claim a bride. When his cousin’s betrothed flees, he lends chase, for the Hawk of Inverfyre trained him. Ross suspects that Nigel’s betrothed plays a game, but Aoife’s ploy is dangerous—for the treacherous MacLaren clan, always seeking to undermine Inverfyre, take her captive. In the course of rescuing Aoife and ensuring her safety, Ross finds himself captivated by the fierce and beautiful maiden. When they both surrender to temptation, their futures are changed—not least by the surprise attack of the MacLaren clan. How much will Ross surrender to guarantee Aoife’s safety? And how much will Aoife give to protect the man who has captured her heart?

Coming November 27!

New Pinterest Boards

The Crusader's Bride, #1 of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixI’ve been getting organized at Pinterest these past few days, and gathering inspiration for Rogues & Angels. My boards have moved around a bit, since Pinterest now allows them to be nested – instead of each book having its own board, each book is a section within a board dedicated to each series.

Here’s the board for the Champions of St. Euphemia. The board existed before, for the series, but the books were separate. Now each book is in a section of its own. I realized the “series” pins were really for The Crusader’s Bride, so I popped them into that section.

There’s a new board for Rogues & Angels, which is a work in progress (and will be until the series is all written). You can follow it right here.

The Mercenary's Bride, #1 of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romancesThe Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre books have been gathered into a single board, to better echo the structure of this new website. Each book has a section of its own and there’s another section for the three keeps themselves, because those details are common to many of the books. Here’s the Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre board.

I still have my Medieval Eye Candy board, which is a catch-all for images that I find evocative of medieval romance. It’s right here.

I also discovered that I hadn’t turned on the Pinterest button for this website, but it’s on now – it appears when you hover over any of the images, and allows you to pin those images to your board of choice.
