Harlequin Undone Debuts

Harlequin adds to its original ebook fiction shorts with the Harlequin Undone line.  This month there are four titles available, each priced at $2.99.  Like Spice Briefs and Nocturne Bites, these novellas can only be purchased in ebook form either from Harlequin's website or any other etailer that carries Harlequin books.

My links sucketh. Here is a better one from commenter RfP:

If you go here in the next 50 minutes, you can get two Spice Briefs and one Nocturne Bites for US$.89 each.

Note that the promotion is good for every day from 12:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m. EST

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    That link didn’t work for me, Jane. I had a look around at the eHarlequin website and this link to the Harlequin Historical Undone ebooks worked for me. The writing guidelines are here and they explain a bit more about what to expect from the books:

    Word Length: 10-15,000 words
    Format: eBooks
    In Historical UNDONE we are looking for a high level of sensuality that flows naturally out of the plotline. There should be a strong emotional basis to the heightened attraction-’it’s vital the reader can believe in the intense emotion driving the characters as their relationship develops. These stories should be hot, sexy and subtly explicit without the lovemaking being vulgar or gratuitous. [...]

    The history should be well researched in order to give an authentic sense of period without taking over from the romance. We are happy to consider stories set in ancient civilizations up to and including the First and Second World Wars. What remains ever popular are the Regency tales, which could see your characters scandalizing high society or being drawn into a salacious underworld inhabited by pickpockets and courtesans!

    We are also open to slightly different elements from those normally found in Harlequin Historical books. Please feel that you can explore aspects of the paranormal and time travel.

    I think cookies are creating the linking problems. Here’s a direct URL to the ebookstore that should work for everyone:
