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

Bartholomew brennt darauf, für seine Vergangenheit Rache zu nehmen – bis Anna ihm eine Zukunft schenkt …

Bartholomew kehrt nach England zurück, um seine Eltern zu rächen und sein gestohlenes Erbe zu beanspruchen – nur, um sich unvermittelt in den Wäldern seiner Heimat einer Diebesbande gegenüberzusehen. Als er den wagemutigen Anführer gefangen nimmt, stellt er zu seiner Überraschung fest, dass es sich um eine junge Frau in Verkleidung handelt, deren scharfer Verstand und Kühnheit ihn beeindrucken. Er schlägt ihr vor, zum Schein zu heiraten, um sich Zugang zur Burg zu verschaffen, freilich, ohne zu ahnen, dass die Ehe sie beide in Versuchung führen wird, mehr zu wollen. Doch kann Bartholomew einer Frau trauen, die durch die Kunst Täuschung überlebt?

Anna möchte Gerechtigkeit für die Menschen in Haynesdale, um jeden Preis. Die Einmischung eines fremden Ritters, und mag er noch so gut aussehen, ist ihr alles andere als willkommen. Bartholomew wäre ein nützlicher Verbündeter, wenn sie sich seiner Ziele nur sicher sein könnte. Benutzt dieser irritierende, charmante Ritter sie nur, um zu einem rätselhaften Zweck alles über die Geschichte der Ländereien zu erfahren? 

Als Bartholomews Identität als verlorener Erbe von Haynesdale aufgedeckt wird, wird er zum Ziel derer, die seine Familie verraten haben. Können er und Anna ihr Misstrauen überwinden und gemeinsam für die Zukunft von Haynesdale kämpfen – und für ihre erblühende Liebe?

The Rose Red Bride, book two of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, Portuguese edition

Mais desejadas do que ouro são as Joias de Kinfairlie, e apenas os mais dignos podem lutar por seu amor… O laird de Kinfairlie tem irmãs solteiras, cada uma delas é uma joia por conta própria. E ele não tem escolha a não ser vê-las todos casadas, e logo.

Como uma heroína em uma antiga lenda, Vivienne esperou por seu amante predestinado no quarto mais alto da torre de Kinfairlie. Na escuridão, ele chegou e se aproximou dela, envolto por capuz e manto para que ela não visse seu rosto. Ele a amou com doçura e entrega… e Vivienne sabia que havia encontrado seu destino.

Mas na luz da manhã, seu sonho é destruído. Erik Sinclair de Blackleith não é um herói romântico, mas um guerreiro deserdado, que organizou seu sequestro para recuperar o próprio legado. Indignada com a insistência de Erik de que precisa dela apenas para gerar um filho, mas envolvida pela paixão que ele desperta, Vivienne percebe que há mais valor em seu taciturno esposo do que ele admitiria. Erik está cético quanto à crescente fé que ela deposita em sua honra e no seu desejo de reconquistar o direito de primogenitura roubado…

Mal ele suspeita que sua rara joia de noiva pretende também capturar seu coração, que se encontra protegido por uma fortaleza intransponível.

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?

Buying Signed Books

I’ve added a couple of pages to the site for you to order books directly from me. You’ll receive your books signed, and I’ll tuck in some swag, too.

I had all these plans to install a store app (like Woocommerce or Shopify) here on the site and also on my Deborah Cooke website, but it was complicated. I’ve gone with the simpler solution now, and just added Paypal buttons.

There are some individual books on this page, and some series bundles on this page. You’ll find them both under the Store tab on the menu bar.

I have a lot of other books, including backlist mass market editions. If there’s something you’d like and you don’t see it in the current listings – or you’re chasing a specific edition to match the ones you have – or if you live outside the US and Canada and would like a postage price, please comment on this post or send me an email (deborah@deborahcooke.com) and we’ll figure it out. 🙂
