Bestselling author Claire Delacroix always loved stories,
both telling them and hearing them. She sold her first romance novel in
1992 and has been happily writing romances ever since. The Beauty, part of Claire's bestselling "Bride Quest" series, was her first title to land on the New York Times Extended List. Claire makes her home in Canada with her family, a
number of incomplete knitting projects and a lot of overgrown
houseplants. She loves to travel, to cook, to ride her bike and to
read. Claire also writes romances as Claire Cross and as Deborah Cooke.
