Books by Claire Delacroix

The Beauty Bride

I haven't read a book by Claire Delacroix in several years, which is odd since I very much enjoyed some of her Harlequin Historicals. The Beauty Bride isn't as different and original as some of her Harlequins, but it was a good way to rediscover an old favorite. Lady Madeline of Kinfairlie has re ...

The Rogue

The Rogue is one of the few books that I bought and then reviewed. I'd read Ms. Delacroix's previous book Double Trouble (written under her Claire Cross pseudonym) and loved so much about it. I loved that it was told in the first person, I loved the much edgier than usual heroine, I loved that the ...

The Damsel

The Damsel is the second book in the Bride Quest series, which follows the adventures of three brothers who each must search for and win brides. I have not read The Princess, the first book in the trilogy, but The Damsel stands clearly on its own and I had no problem following what most likely occur ...

The Princess

If you want to hearken back to a time of knights and damsels, of chivalry and bards and tales of true love, The Princess is the book to take you there. Ms. Delacroix spins a lyrical, whimsical story worthy of a bards tale. It's a wonderfully fun read and it simply made me smile. When Princess ...

The Princess

Medieval Ireland -- castles, princesses, and knights! I can never resist medieval romance novels, so I had high hopes for Claire Delacroix's The Princess, first of the Bride Quest Trilogy. And I wasn't disappointed! Delacroix combines interesting dialogue, engaging characters, and a new twist on a c ...
