(And as always, if you can pitch your manuscript as "Twin Peaks meets romance" I will drop everything to read it. I am fully convinced this idea makes for a great romantic suspense novel and I will drop everything to read it.)

We still publish a lot of westerns, a lot of search and rescue, and the like. That won't change. But I'm newish and actively looking to add to my roster of authors, so if you have something different, send it along; I read every submission sent to me (might take a while but I do)

Our submittable guidelines also mention a lot of our more conventional asks, things that have proved to do well for us. But I'm really interested in stretching our series a little bit, and finding great writers who are giving us fresh takes on old tropes.

I'm going to add more things as I think of them. Some other wish list items: a Mulder/Scully type pairing of skeptic and true believer (without the actual aliens; please don't send me explicitly scifi/paranormal stuff because I'm not allowed to acquire them).

#mwsl: Our Harlequin Romantic Suspense line is woefully lacking in LGBTQ+ representation. Anyone have a great f/f romantic suspense novel they want to send me? Cagney & Lacey vibes, or a Jessica Fletcher/Miss Marple team up? Let me know. harlequin.submittable.com/submit
