I’ve enrolled my time travel romances in KDP Select, which means that you can read them free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. It also means that these four books and the bundle, Timeless Loves, are available exclusively at Amazon through the end of September.
The Countess, book four of my Bride Quest series of medieval romances is on sale for just 99 cents this week, as part of the Jewels of Historical Romances‘ Celebration of June Weddings and my own Bride Quest Sale.
Driven from her late husband’s estate, Countess Eglantine de Crevy fled to wildest Scotland to claim a castle, only to find a ruin — and a clan chieftain standing guard. Kinbeath was hers, she declared, vowing to rebuild the manor and launch a bride quest so her daughters could marry for love. But Duncan MacLaren had devised a bride quest of his own, swearing to win the land—and the fiery countess—in a war of sweet seduction…
Eglantine declared she would never be captured by this barbarian. Yet Duncan awakened passions she had never known before. She promised to fight him with every weapon at her command even as he vowed to woo her for a year and a day—and make her his pagan bride.
Each thought Kinbeath the prize the most desired, a prize to be won at any price. Until passion turned to love, and the chieftain found himself fighting for the heart and hand of the woman he was born to possess.
“Master storyteller Claire Delacroix has done it again with this marvelous medieval romance. The Countess is a keeper!”—Old Book Barn Gazette
USA Today Bestseller
A #1 Kindle Bestseller
In my most recent newsletter, I asked if you preferred linked titles or standalone romances. I had a lot of answers, and am really not surprised that most of you prefer linked stories. It makes sense that you get more invested in the characters and their world when there are more books set in that world. I was intrigued that so many of you dislike serialized stories, but then, that’s not such a thing in historical romance.
The winner of the signed copy of The Rogues of Ravensmuir Collectors’ Edition in hardcover was Billie.
Congratulations to Billie, and thanks to everyone who entered!
The Mercenary’s Bride
The Brides of Inverfyre #1
Robbed of his possessions, wounded and left for dead, Quentin de Montgomerie has lost everything except his love for Mhairi, the daughter of the Hawk of Inverfyre—and he knows who is to blame for his fate. He vows to return to Inverfyre and take his vengeance from the Hawk, but arrives to discover that the fierce maiden in possession of his heart has blossomed into a beauty, and that her kiss has the power to give him hope for the future again. Can Quentin prove himself to the Hawk and win Mhairi—or will she spurn him for being less than once he was?
The Mercenary’s Bride is a Christmas Scottish medieval romance novella which was originally published in the Christmas 2017 anthology The Nutcracker Reimagined.
Mhairi’s Yuletide Wish
Bound to a man more than twice her age in exchange for the price of her uncle’s ransom, Mhàiri Burns is desperate to avoid the match. Rather than simply await her fate, she sets out in a snow storm to seek a mysterious brooch rumored to be the answer to her prayers. Though it is the season for peace and goodwill, her uncle will perish at the hands of the English if Mhàiri cannot rescue him by the end of Yuletide.
Michaell Kerr has loved Mhàiri since they were children. Discovering Mhàiri’s grandfather has pledged her to another man sets Michaell in a race against time to find a way to break the betrothal—and help Mhàiri save her uncle.
What Mhàiri and Michaell receive this Yuletide season could prove more than they had ever dreamed.
