Harlequin to Provide Romance Novels as eBooks

Oct 07, 2005

Harlequin Enterprises Limited, a publisher of series romance and women's fiction, has announced an agreement with OverDrive, Inc., a national provider of download Audiobooks and eBooks to libraries, that will make many of Harlequin's collection of novels available as downloadable eBooks through library Web sites.

The agreement between the two companies makes dozens of Harlequin's titles available to library patrons at home, the office, or on-the-go. Harlequin eBooks include titles from New York Times Best-Sellers, like "50 Harbor Street", by Debbie Macomber; and popular titles from Red Dress Ink, HQN Books, Steeple Hill, Luna Books, Harlequin Blaze, MIRA Books, Silhouette Desire, Harlequin Presents, and more. Each month, Harlequin will update the eBook collection with new titles. The library download editions will be available in Adobe PDF and other popular eBook formats. At the end of the lending period titles automatically expire and are made available to the next patron. OverDrive and Harlequin will make the books available early October 2005.
