Claire Delacroix


NYT bestselling author Claire Delacroix always loved stories, both telling them and hearing them. She sold her first romance novel - THE 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 True Love Brides Series, which began with THE RENEGADE'S HEART. These are paranormal medieval romances set in Scotland and continue the story of the eight siblings at Kinfairlie. THE BEAUTY BRIDE, book #1 of the Jewels of Kinfairlie trilogy of medieval romances, introduces the family. THE RENEGADE'S HEART is Isabella's story and THE HIGHLANDER'S CURSE is Annelise's story. THE FROST MAIDEN'S KISS will be next in the series and will be Malcolm's story.
