Pre-orders for Los campeones de Santa Eufemia

I’ve set up pre-orders at some of the portals for the next three books in this series as they’re being translated right now. How exciting! Bartholomew’s story will be available in March; Fergus’ story will be available in April; Duncan’s story will be available in May. The first two books are available now. Just click through on the cover for more details on each one.

The Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, in Spanish

Los Campeones de Santa Eufemia sigue a un grupo de caballeros a quienes se les ha confiado un tesoro en Jerusalén que ellos deben entregar de manera segura a París.  En el camino encuentran aventuras y peligros, además de romance.  Dado que las historias se superponen y se construyen unas sobre otras, deben leerse en orden.

The Crusader’s Heart in Spanish

The Crusader's Heart, book two of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, in its Spanish edition

This week, I published The Crusader’s Heart in a new Spanish edition, called El corazon del caballero de las Cruzadas.

This is pretty exciting as it’s the first translation I’ve published directly (and not through Babelcube, a portal for authors to translate and distribute their books). I’m excited about the differences – for example, Wulfe’s book is available at Amazon already, while Gaston’s book, published in Spanish through Babelcube on December 29, is still on its way to Amazon. Books will be published faster this way, plus I’ll have more control over the pricing – and I’ll be able to see sales in real time. I’ll also be creating print editions of these books.

The other exciting thing is working with a little team on the task of translating my books to Spanish. I have a translator, Lauren, who is just lovely, and found a proofreader among my readers, Guadalupe, so the three of us are working together to get this done. I have a big list of books, so we have lots to do. We’re starting with the Champions of St. Euphemia (obviously) but also with Flatiron Five Tattoo from my contemporary romance list. Those will be the first translations of my contemporary romances that I’ve done. It also means new pages on my website(s) and new newsletter(s), but I’m loving the challenge.

There will be print editions of the new translations, too.

El corazon del caballero de las Cruzadas

The Crusader's Heart, book two of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, in its Spanish edition

Wulfe conocía su lugar, hasta que Cristina le enseñó a querer más…


Un huérfano y un hombre que ha luchado por su propia supervivencia, Wulfe es un caballero templario que ha jurado a la orden de por vida. Él defenderá a la orden y a sus hermanos hasta el final, pero protesta cuando se le incluye en una misión para entregar un paquete a París en la cúspide de un ataque a Jerusalén. La tarea lo irrita tanto que busca distraerse en un burdel veneciano. Wulfe no espera encontrarse con una cortesana de belleza e ingenio, la solicitud de ella por su ayuda, mucho menos su propio deseo de cumplir con lo que ella pide…


Cristina reconoce inmediatamente que el caballero sombrío le ofrece la oportunidad de escapar de una vida que desprecia y reclamar su legado. Todo lo que tiene que hacer es convencer a Wulfe de que la acompañe fuera de la ciudad, un desafío que exige más que el poder de su toque; cuando Wulfe es atacado, aprovecha la oportunidad para demostrar su valor para él y su búsqueda, sin saber si su ingenio sería suficiente.


Mientras aumentan los ataques y el peligro envuelve al pequeño grupo, Cristina es la que adivina el contenido del paquete Templario y tiene la clave para su entrega exitosa. Wulfe se sorprende al darse cuenta de que ella ha despertado el corazón que él había olvidado que poseía, y cuando ella se arriesga para ver cumplida la misión, él debe elegir entre su deber y su nuevo amor…

The Rose Red Bride in German

The Rose Red Bride, book two of my Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances, is now available in German! I’ve enrolled this book in Kindle Unlimited so it will be available exclusively at Amazon at least until April 19.

Die rosenrote Braut

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

Höhergeschätzt als Gold sind die Juwelen von Kinfairlie und nur die Würdigsten dürfen um ihre Liebe kämpfen … Der Laird von Kinfairlie hat unverheiratete Schwestern – jede für sich ein Kleinod. Und er hat keine andere Wahl, als sie in aller Eile zu verheiraten.

Wie eine Heldin in einer alten Erzählung wartet Vivienne im höchsten Turmzimmer von Kinfairlie auf den Liebhaber, den ihr das Los bestimmt hat. Er kommt in der Dunkelheit zu ihr, mit Umhang und Kapuze, sodass sie sein Gesicht nicht sehen kann. Er liebt sie süß und hingebungsvoll … und Vivienne weiß, sie ist ihrem Schicksal begegnet.

Doch im Morgenlicht zerbricht ihr Traum. Erik Sinclair von Blackleith ist kein romantischer Held, sondern ein enterbter Krieger, der ihre Entführung geplant hat, um sein Erbe zurückzugewinnen. Empört über Eriks Behauptung, sie nur für die Zeugung eines Sohnes zu benötigen, und doch verführt von der Leidenschaft, die er in ihr erweckt, wird Vivienne klar, dass ihr schweigsamer Ehegatte mehr Vorzüge hat, als er selbst zugeben würde. Erik betrachtet ihr wachsendes Vertrauen in seine Ehre und ihren Wunsch, sein gestohlenes Geburtsrecht zurückzuerlangen, mit Skepsis …

Er ahnt nicht, dass seine Braut, dieses seltene Juwel, beabsichtigt, auch sein verschlossenes Herz zu gewinnen.

Exclusive to Kindle Unlimited until April 20

Coming in 2021

This year is going to be a busy one! Here’s what I can tell you now about upcoming releases.

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

I have two new books on the schedule for this year: The Wolf & the Witch, which is the first book in a new trilogy called Blood Brothers, will be published in the spring. One Knight’s Desire, which is the third book in the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances will be published in the fall.

I’ll also have two audiobooks published this year, both of which will be narrated by Tim Campbell: The Wolf & the Witch will be available in audio in the spring (in my attempt to move closer to simultaneous audio release). The Runaway Bride will be released in audio in the fall (in my attempt to catch up on audio editions for books that are already available). I’m excited to be moving back into audio again, and I love Tim’s recording of The Mercenary’s Bride. He has such a wonderful voice and a talent for bringing the story to life.

There will also be two new boxed sets. Stolen Brides will be published in February at a discounted price of 99cents for release. There will be another new bundle in the summer, but that’s all I’ll tell you about that right now. 😉

Stolen Brides Boxed Set, including four Beauty-and-the-Beast medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

I’ve had a lot of translations in the works, and they’ll start popping up this month. In German, you’ll see more of the Jewels of Kinfairlie this year, as well as the launch of the Champions of St. Euphemia. In Portuguese, we’ll complete the Jewels of Kinfairlie. In Italian, we’ll start the True Love Brides. In Spanish, we’ll see the Champions of St. Euphemia series completed and maybe even more.

Will there be even more? It’s possible. I’ll keep you posted.

Monthly Feature: Second Chance Romances

One of my favorite tropes (maybe my VERY favorite one!) is Second Chance Romance. There’s little more appealing than being given a chance to do better, or to fix what went wrong in the past. When true love goes wrong, I love watching characters seize that second chance and work to make it right. These characters really earn their happily-ever-after. Plus, I like that they often have shared history or different memories (or interpretations) of the same event in the past. I enjoy watching them air their grievances, often while struggling against an attraction that won’t be denied. Here are a few of my own Second Chance Romances.

The Damsel, #2 of the Bride Quest series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

The Damsel, book two of my Bride Quest series, is a Cinderella story with a twist. Burke fell in love with Alys years before, and has regretted that he left her behind when her parents insisted on it. Haunted by his regrets, he returns to Alys, determined to win her heart for his own. Alys, however, believes she has a duty to her family and to follow their instructions—plus she’s not sure whether to trust Burke. His touch makes her forget everything she knows to be true, and it’s only sensible to fight against that kind of influence. Unfortunately for Alys’ plan, Burke’s passion and persistence is the very essence of temptation…

The Rogue, #1 of the Rogues of Ravensmuir series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

The Rogue is book one of my Rogues of Ravensmuir series. Sparks flew on the day that Ysabella and Merlyn first met and their mutual attraction was both powerful and immediate. How could she resist this handsome laird’s insistence that they wed? Ysabella was beguiled by Merlyn, until his secret was revealed and she fled their marriage. The book opens when he returns, five years later, to ask for her help. Someone is trying to kill him, a situation Ysabella can readily understand, and Merlyn is determined to convince his estranged wife to name the villain. “The fire still burns, chère,” he murmurs when he draws near, and it certainly does. If you haven’t been beguiled by Merlyn yet, the time has come. The Rogue is discounted to just 99cents for the month of January.

Something Wicked This Way Comes, #1 of the Brides of North Barrows series of Regency romances by Claire Delacroix

Something Wicked This Way Comes is one of my few Regency romances. It’s a novella and the first book in the Brides of North Barrows series. Lucien de Roye broke Sophia’s heart, yet when their paths cross again, she can’t help but respond to his presence. Her former life is a memory since her father’s passing, and fortunately, she’s in disguise, working as a governess—but Lucien isn’t fooled. He recognizes Sophia and is determined to make one thing right before the curse laid upon him claims his life. This is a bit of a ghost story, influenced by Lucien’s family holding, a sugar plantation in the West Indies, and Baron Samedi has a cameo.

The Warrior, #3 of the Rogues of Ravensmuir series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix

The Warrior is book three of my Rogues of Ravensmuir series of medieval romances and has more of a fantasy element than the other books. The Hawk of Inverfyre is driven to reclaim his family estate from the rebels who stole it and means to secure the succession when he does. He needs a bride because he needs a son, and he doesn’t question his choice of Aileen, the overlooked daughter of an ally. He’s not a warrior inclined to negotiate and hasn’t much time: he abducts Aileen and weds her, never guessing that his touch awakens her dreams of their shared past, or that the bride that he seemingly chose by chance is his destined partner and true love. This is a reincarnation story, as well as a Beauty and the Beast story, and a favorite book of mine.

As you know by now, part of this feature is that at least one of the showcased books will be offered to newsletter subscribers at a discount. If you haven’t signed up for my monthly Knights & Rogues newsletter, this might be a good chance to do so.
