TORONTO, Dec. 4 /CNW/ -- Harlequin Enterprises Limited, one of the
world's leading publishers of women's fiction, has launched Harlequin(R)
Historical Undone! -- sexy, scandalous short stories set in a wide array of
historical settings and available exclusively in the eBook format. In just
10,000 - 15,000 words, these romantically charged historical short stories
offer all the passion and plot that readers expect from full-length Harlequin
Historical novels. Regularly priced at $2.99 U.S., Harlequin Historical
Undone! eBooks were introduced at a special price of 99 cents each during
their November 2008 launch month.

The historical romance marketplace is dominated by Regency-era stories,
but Harlequin Historical Undone! offers readers a broader choice of historical
periods and locations -- from hot medieval romances to exciting World War II
encounters, from sexy Viking adventures to steamy Old West showdowns and, of
course, the ever-popular Regency tales. Harlequin Historical Undone! is also
different from full-length Harlequin Historical books (or eBooks) in that it
features sexier and racier editorial for those who enjoy a more sensual read.
"These sexy historical short stories are convenient, easily accessible
and the perfect length for the discerning woman in today's busy lifestyle,"
says Linda Fildew, senior executive editor for Harlequin Historical. "In
addition to being compact, they still contain imaginative and engaging
premises, well-constructed plots and believable characters. Furthermore, they
build upon the tremendous popularity of the Harlequin Historical series and
the success of Nocturne Bites paranormal eBooks and Spice Briefs-eBooks."
Harlequin Historical Undone! launched in November with four titles,
including The Unmasking of Lady Loveless by Nicola Cornick, and features some
of the best-known authors of historical romance fiction, like Bronwyn Scott,
Joanne Rock and Michelle Willingham.
With one new title per month, Harlequin Historical Undone! stories are
available in all eBook formats (including Adobe PDF, Microsoft Reader,
Mobipocket, Palm, Kindle and Sony) and can be downloaded through
eBooks.eHarlequin.com and all other eRetailers.
Already an industry front-list leader in eBooks, Harlequin is at the
leading edge of digital publishing, offering over 100 new titles every month
in eBook format and regularly topping the eBook bestseller lists.
Harlequin Historical is a long-running and popular series that publishes
four titles monthly.
