Attention romance lovers! Harlequin announced this morning that they’ve signed #1 New York Times best-selling author Sylvia Day to a whopping seven-figure, two-book deal.
Afterburn (August 15, 2013) will be the first book in Harlequin’s new ebook series published in conjunction with Cosmopolitan magazine. Cosmo Red Hot Reads will feature strong, contemporary female characters representative of the magazine’s readership. Day’s second ebook in the series, Aftershock, will follow on November 15, 2013, along with a two-in-one paperback edition of the duo.
Of the collaboration, Day says, “My stories are known for featuring fun, fearless Cosmopolitan-type heroines as well as delicious, dangerous heroes synonymous with Harlequin. Afterburn and Aftershock will be no exception.”
According to the announcement, two Cosmo Red Hot Reads ebooks ($3.99 each) will be released to eager readers every month.
