My Books & Kindle Unlimited

As I’ve done several times in the past, I tried an experiment this spring and enrolled my medieval romances in KDP Select, which meant that Kindle Unlimited subscribers could read them free—and I’d get paid for page reads as well as sales. While there are authors who do very well in KU, I see a similar pattern each time: it works really well until suddenly it doesn’t. I just don’t have the knack of making KU work over the long term.

My books were enrolled at the beginning of April. Their term in Kindle Unlimited ends July 1. They’re not going to be renewed for another 90-day term in the program: next weekend, I’ll make them available at all portals again. I’ll let you know when that’s done.

Exclusive three book bonus for subscribers to Claire Delacroix's Knights & Rogues medieval romance newsletterI’ll also restore the newsletter sign-up bundle of three free series starters – including The Princess, The Beauty Bride and The Crusader’s Bride. I had to remove this because books enrolled in KDP Select have to be available exclusively at Amazon. On July 2, that won’t be the case anymore. I’ll include the download link in the July newsletter, in case you signed up when the bundle wasn’t available.

Three of my time travels have already come out of KU—The Moonstone, The Last Highlander and Once Upon a Kiss, as well as the bundle Timeless Loves—and I’m republishing them at all portals today.

She enchanted him with a kiss—but winning her love would demand all he possessed.

After eight years abroad, Malcolm returns to Scotland with a fortune, a companion even more hardened than he and a determination to restore his inherited holding. But when that companion falls into peril, Malcolm seizes the chance to repay an old debt, trading his own soul for that of his doomed comrade. Knowing his days are limited and determined to leave a legacy of merit, Malcolm rebuilds Ravensmuir with all haste, though he fears he will never have an heir.

A night of violence has left Catriona with no home and no faith in the honor of men. She expects little good from a visit to her lady’s brother, Laird of Ravensmuir, a known mercenary. But the handsome laird challenges her expectations with his courtesy, his allure—and his unexpected proposal. Knowing it is her sole chance to ensure her child’s future, Catriona dares to accept Malcolm’s hand. She soon realizes that this warrior fights a battle of his own and that she holds the key to his salvation. Little does she realize her past is in hot pursuit, seeking to destroy all she holds dear—including the laird who has thawed the frost of her reluctant heart.

The Beauty Bride, book one of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, Portuguese editionAs Joias de Kinfairlie são mais apreciadas do que ouro, e apenas os mais dignos podem disputar seu amor… O laird de Kinfairlie tem irmãs solteiras, cada uma delas uma joia por mérito próprio. E ele não tem escolha a não ser tratar de casá-las urgentemente.

O coração de lady Madeline não está à venda… muito menos para um notório proscrito como Rhys FitzHenry. No entanto, a mão de Madeline foi vendida a ninguém menos que este guerreiro cansado de lutar e com um preço por sua cabeça. Uma donzela mais obediente poderia ceder às determinações do laird e aceitar passivamente o seu destino, mas Madeline nunca foi obediente. Ela decide fugir, embora não lhe passe pela cabeça que Rhys a perseguirá.

Ela não espera que esse homem taciturno a corteje com histórias fascinantes, muito menos que cada um de seus cativantes contos revele uma cicatriz em sua alma impenetrável. Ela nunca imaginaria que um homem como Rhys pudesse colocar em perigo o seu próprio coração, mesmo revelando tão pouco sobre seus sentimentos. Quando o passado de Rhys ameaça o futuro dele, Madeline lhe dá um voto de confiança. Ela ousa acreditar que ele é inocente — e arrisca a própria vida para ir ao encalço de uma paixão mais inestimável do que a joia mais rara.

The Beauty Bride in German

The Beauty Bride, book one of my Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances, is now available in German!

There’s a new page here on the site to feature my German editions, right here.

Die schon Braut, The Beauty Bride book one of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix in its German editionHöhergeschätzt als Gold sind die Juwelen von Kinfairlie und nur die Würdigsten dürfen um ihre Liebe kämpfen … Der Laird von Kinfairlie hat fünf unverheiratete Schwestern – jede für sich ein Kleinod. Und er hat keine andere Wahl, als sie in aller Eile zu verheiraten.

Lady Madelines Herz ist nicht käuflich zu erwerben … vor allem nicht durch einen verrufenen Geächteten wie Rhys FitzHenry. Und doch wurde Madelines Hand verkauft, an keinen anderen als an diesen kampfesmüden Krieger, auf den ein Kopfgeld ausgesetzt ist. Eine pflichtgetreuere Maid würde dem Befehl des Lairds vielleicht Folge leisten und ihr Schicksal widerspruchslos annehmen, doch Madeline war noch nie gehorsam. Sie beschließt, fortzulaufen, und denkt nicht im Traum daran, dass Rhys sie verfolgen könnte.

Sie erwartet nicht, dass dieser wortkarge Mann ihr den Hof macht, indem er ihr fantasievolle Geschichten erzählt, und noch viel weniger, dass jeder seiner packenden Berichte eine Narbe auf seiner Seele enthüllt, die er hinter einem Schutzschild verborgen hält. Es ist für sie unvorstellbar, dass ein Mann wie Rhys ihr Herz in Gefahr bringen könnte, während er selbst so wenig von seinen eigenen Gefühlen verrät. Als Rhys’ Vergangenheit seine Zukunft bedroht, fasst Madeline den Entschluss, ihm blind zu vertrauen. Sie geht das Wagnis ein, zu glauben, dass er unschuldig ist – und riskiert ihr Leben für eine Leidenschaft, die wertvoller ist als das kostbarste Juwel.
