Tumbling Dominoes

Yesterday, I moved out my publication dates. Moving one meant moving the next and so forth, so we have a domino effect.

The Widow's Wager, book 3 of The Ladies' Essential Guide to the Art of Seduction series of Regency romances by Claire Delacroix
The Widow’s Wager
The Scot and the Sorceress, book four of the Blood Brothers trilogy by Claire Delacroix
The Scot & the Sorceress
One Knight's Desire, book three of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix
One Knight’s Desire

The Widow’s Wager will now be published April 11.

The Scot & the Sorceress will now be published June 15.

One Knight’s Desire will now be published August 15.

The culprit was a story that I added into my schedule in January, mistakenly believing it would be a novella. Kiss of Enchantment is a full-length book and one that has to be nestled into the existing world of the Dragonfire Novels. It’s the first book in a new PNR series and hopped onto my schedule during my Kickstarter campaign. It also publishes in April. I was just too optimistic about getting the story done in a short period of time and, as a result, everything moved a little bit further along the conveyor belt.

On the upside, my next Kickstarter campaign will feature new print editions of The Bride Quest – not omnibus editions, but individual hard covers and mass market editions. That will launch in May or June, and I’ll tell you more as we get closer to that. You can also follow me on Kickstarter to be notified of all new campaigns.

Negado de seu legítimo legado, Maximilian de Vries elaborou um plano para vingar-se do pai e garantir seu próprio futuro. Aliado aos seus dois meios-irmãos, ele segue para a antiga e misteriosa Kilderrick, determinado a tomar a fortaleza prometida a ele, não importa o preço. Uma mulher que se diz bruxa é a única ousada o suficiente para desafiá-lo, mas Maximilian tem uma solução, ele a tomará como esposa, quer ela esteja disposta ou não, e selará a reivindicação.

No entanto, este poderoso guerreiro ainda precisa ganhar uma batalha de mentes com Alys Armstrong, uma donzela com sede de vingança e uma fúria que pode exceder a dele. Alys não tem intenção alguma de se render ao ladino orgulhoso e poderoso que roubou tudo dela. Não importa o quão sedutor seu toque possa ser, e ela não compartilha da compulsão dele de lutar de forma justa.

Inimigos amargos desde o início, Maximilian e Alys travam uma batalha de vontades. Quando a paixão se inflama, algum deles será capaz de resistir à tentação? E quando a própria Kilderrick está em perigo, será que os dois unirão forças para salvar as terras que ambos tanto valorizam, e o amor inesperado que tanto estimam, acima de tudo?


The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix in audio

I revisited the pricing on my audiobooks this week and have lowered the prices on the older editions, including The Rogue, The Jewels of Kinfairlie, The True Love Brides, and The Champions of St. Euphemia. The full-length audiobooks have gone from $14.99US to $9.99US and the library pricing has dropped too. I can’t control the prices at Amazon and Audible, but they’ll change elsewhere. (Maybe Amazon will match the prices. I’m not sure as audio is different.) The prices have already changed at KOBO and will perk through to other portals over the next few weeks.

The Beauty Bride, #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix is also available in audio

My audiobooks are also available at Spotify now and I’ve added those links to the landing pages here on the website (as well as in Books2Read). Spotify isn’t available in all geos (not in Canada, but definitely US and UK.), so the link will just go 404 if they’re not in your geo.

I’d like to get some reviews on Spotify for my audiobooks, so will be giving away some redemption codes in my March Knights & Rogues newsletter. Keep an eye out for that if you’re an audiobook fan!

If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, you can do that right here.

The Stolen Bride Cover Reveal

The Stolen Bride, book three of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

The Stolen Bride is Evangeline and Ramsay’s book, book three of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances. This pair met in The Runaway Bride and there’s a lot of energy between them. Evangeline, of course, will be expected to make a strategic marriage but won’t be pleased about it. I’m thinking Ramsay will offer the perfect temptation for her to defy her father, the Hawk, and to evade her arranged marriage. Hmm. But why does Ramsay want to marry her? Evangeline may think she’s jumped from the fat to the fire…

This one will be published in December 🙂

The Stolen Bride, book three of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix

She will be no man’s prize….

Evangeline Armstrong is resolved to evade the strategic marriage arranged for her by her father, the Hawk of Inverfyre. She feigns compliance, intending to flee to the king’s court for protection once her party is away from Inverfyre. Instead, she is seized by Ramsay MacLaren, an outlaw and her father’s sworn enemy, and compelled to wed him.

Ramsay MacLaren owes a debt to the eldest daughter of the Hawk of Inverfyre, one he will never forget‚ just as he cannot forget the beguiling beauty who helped him escape her father’s dungeon. He has learned that no other woman can satisfy him, though he knows the Hawk would never allow their match. When Ramsay witnesses Evangeline’s departure with only a small party, he sees his chance and claims her for his own.

In morning’s light, Evangeline fears that Ramsay’s sweet words were solely to earn her capitulation—and support his claim to Inverfyre. All the same, she cannot regret the marvel of his touch. Does she dare to trust the warrior whose kiss ignites her very soul? For his part, Ramsay finds himself captivate by the woman he has taken to wife—even at the expense of his own plan for vengeance. Can he truly destroy all of import to her to avenge the past? When Ramsay is challenged by Evangeline’s wealthy betrothed, how can he choose between his vow to his family and the lady who holds his heart in thrall?

Evangeline and Ramsay’s story is coming December 26, 2024.
