Current #MSWL is super steamy Regency romance. High heat and high concept. Agented or unagented submissions welcome. christa(dot)desir(at)sourcebooks(dot)com

Do you write #HistoricalRomance ? Find out what the @HarlequinBooks Historical editors are looking for!

There's a lot of overlap here with my own historical romance #mswl. I have been begging for what feels like forever for a Regency centered on South Asian protags. And a 1950s historical romance? *swoons*

Currently acquiring: Regency, Victorian, and Highlander historical romances full of humor, heart, and heat. I would love to see a diverse cast that includes POC, preferably #ownvoices, set in one of these time periods. #MSWL ATTN: Heather

In romance: I love quirky characters and am far more likely to be drawn to a story that makes me laugh than one that makes me cry. In historical, I really would love to see some diverse stories. Give me South Asians falling in love in London during the Regency, for example. #mswl

Now for some specifics! In romance, I am particularly interested in historical romances, and would love to see more diversity in my submissions. Let's see the Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian periods through different eyes.

#mswl Regency Romance. Fresh. Or different. Or edgy. Or funny. With a twist! Lastly, traditional always works.
