AUTHOR

Claire Delacroix

NYT bestselling author Claire Delacroix always loved stories, both telling them and hearing them. She sold her first romance novel - ROMANCE OF THE ROSE - in 1992 and has published over fifty romance novels since. She writes in a variety of subgenres, including time travel romance, historical romance, medieval romance, fantasy romance and fantasy with romantic elements. She has also written under the names Claire Cross and Deborah Cooke. She makes her home with her family, a number of incomplete knitting projects and a lot of overgrown houseplants. Claire loves to travel, to cook, to ride her bike and to read.

Claire is currently writing The Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances. She loves writing linked books and here they are in order:

The Bride Quest series of medieval romances:
1. The Princess - her first USAT bestseller
2. The Damsel - a USAT bestseller
3. The Heiress - a USAT bestseller
4. The Countess - a USAT bestseller
5. The Beauty - a USAT and NYT bestseller
6. The Temptress

The Rogues of Ravensmuir trilogy of medieval Scottish romances:
1. The Rogue
2. The Scoundrel
3. The Warrior

The Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances tells the stories of the next generation after the Rogues of Ravensmuir:
1. The Beauty Bride
2. The Rose Red Bride
3. The Snow White Bride
4. The Ballad of Rosamunde

The True Love Brides series continues with the family introduced in the Jewels of Kinfairlie. There are eight siblings all together, and these are the next four:
1. The Renegade's Heart
2. The Highlander's Curse
3. The Frost Maiden's Kiss
4. The Warrior's Prize

The Brides of Inverfyre series will include the story of the last sibling from Kinfairlie (Ross) as well as those of the children of the Hawk and Aileen (from The Warrior):
1. The Mercenary's Bride
2. The Runaway Bride (October 2018)

The Champions of St. Euphemia is a medieval romance series that has no connection to Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie or Inverfyre. It follows a group of knights from Jerusalem to Scotland and should be read in order:
1. The Crusader's Bride
2. The Crusader's Heart
3. The Crusader's Kiss
4. The Crusader's Vow
5. The Crusader's Handfast

Claire also published four stand-alone time travel or paranormal romances under the name Claire Cross. These have been republished as Claire Delacroix titles:
1. Once Upon a Kiss
2. The Last Highlander
3. The Moonstone
4. Love Potion #9

Claire has a Regency romance series in progress called The Brides of North Barrows:
1. Something Wicked This Way Comes (in the anthology Spellbound and on its own)
2. A Duke by Any Other Name (in the anthology Charmed at Christmas)

Claire also writes paranormal and contemporary romance as Deborah Cooke.
