Audiobooks Coming Soon

I’m excited to share with you that I’ve contracted with narrator Tim Campbell for two more audiobooks.

The Mercenary's Bride, book one of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix, in audio

First, I’m listening to his narration of The Mercenary’s Bride right now. Once I approve it, it will make its way to Audible, Amazon and Apple. I’m not sure how long that takes these days, so we’ll find out together. I’m so excited that he managed to squeeze in this project, as Quentin and Mhairi’s romance is a Christmas story. It’ll be great to have the audiobook available (fingers crossed) for the holiday season.

I should have a sample to share with you next week.

When you listen, remember that the Gaelic pronunciation of Mhairi is VAHree.

Next, in the effort to catch up and make audio production more concurrent with new book releases, Tim will record The Wolf & the Witch in May 2021. It’s not quite simultaneous production and publication, but it’s a lot closer to that ideal than I’ve been to date.

The Runaway Bride, book two of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix, in audio

Finally, Tim and I have contracted for production of The Runaway Bride in August 2021, so Ross and Aiofe’s story will be available next fall. We’ll be caught up with the Kinfairlie and Inverfyre books then, which is pretty cool.

We’ll see how things work out after that. I’d like Tim to finish the Blood Brothers trilogy (once I write it) and it’s possible that he could finish the Champions of St. Euphemia series for me. We’ll see how the next year goes, then make a plan for subsequent recordings. Right now, you audiobook fans have three new listens coming soon!

More Audiobooks

I produced a lot of audiobooks in a row, then stopped. Why? It was hard to promote them and I became overwhelmed. But I sorted out some distribution stuff (and am sorting out a bit more) and am looking at them again. There are some new promotional avenues, and I’m kind of excited about that. I know a lot of you love audiobooks.

I also found a fabulous new narrator. I’d been thinking about hiring a new-to-me male narrator for my series and listened to Tim Campbell, who narrates for Cynthia Wright (among many others). His audition blew me away, so we’re off.

He’s recording The Mercenary’s Bride right now. The stars aligned and he had time to squeeze it in this weekend, then he’s booked up. I feel very lucky and hope to be able to share a sample and buy links with you soon.

Here we go again!

The Wolf & the Witch Cover Reveal

The Wolf & the Witch is the first book in a new medieval Scottish trilogy called Blood Brothers, which will be launching next April! I just love the cover and am really enjoying Max and Alys together.

The Wolf & the Witch, book one of the Blood Brothers trilogy of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixDenied his rightful legacy, Maximilian de Vries devised a plan to avenge himself upon his father and see his own future secured. Allied with his two forgotten half-brothers, he descends upon ancient and mysterious Kilderrick, determined to claim it at any price. A woman rumored to be a witch is the sole one bold enough to defy him but Maximilian has a solution—he will take her to wife, whether she be willing or nay, and seal his claim.

But this powerful warrior has yet to match wits with Alys Armstrong, a maiden with a thirst for vengeance and a fury that might exceed his own. Alys has no intention of capitulating to the proud and illegitimate son of the rogue who stole everything from her, and she does not share his avowed compulsion to fight fair.

Bitter enemies from the outset, Maximilian and Alys’ match is a battle of wills. When anger turns to passion, will either of them be able to resist temptation? And when Kilderrick itself is in peril, will they be able to join forces to save the unexpected love they have come to value above all else?

Coming April 26, 2021

Updated Family Trees for Ravensmuir and Inverfyre

The Runaway Bride, book #2 of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixI’m so happy that these updates are finally done. 🙂

The family trees for Ravensmuir and for Inverfyre have been updated to reflect events through the end of The Runaway Bride. That includes Ross and Aiofe’s marriage, but also a number of additional children, and takes us to 1434.

There’s a new (third) family tree for this family in the works, which features the Armstrong line at Inverfyre. I needed it to have room for the Hawk’s grandchildren. It should be done in the next week or so, but right now, you can download the updates to the first two Ravensmuir family trees.

 

The Renegade’s Heart is Free!

The Renegade's Heart, book one of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixNow through July 14, The Renegade’s Heart is a free series starter!

The Renegade's Heart, #1 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixShe would risk everything to save his soul…

Released from the captivity of the Fae, Murdoch Seton wants nothing more than to forget his lost years. Undertaking a quest to recover treasure stolen from his family seems the perfect solution – but Murdoch is not counting upon a curious maiden who holds both the secret to the theft and his sole redemption.

Isabella is outraged to find her brother’s keep besieged by a renegade knight—especially one who is too handsome for his own good or hers. After a single encounter, she becomes convinced that his cause is just and decides to unveil the true thief, never imagining that their single shared kiss has launched a battle for Murdoch’s very soul.

As the treacherous Fae move to claim Murdoch forever, Isabella seeks to heal the knight who has stolen her heart. But will Murdoch allow her to take a risk and endanger herself? Or will he sacrifice himself to ensure Isabella’s future?
