Harlequin Nocturne is looking to acquire bold and exciting paranormal romance short stories for its eBook program, Nocturne Cravings. Strong, emotional characters that grab the readers imagination are also essential.

We are looking for stories of vampires, shape-shifters, werewolves, psychic powers, etc. set in contemporary times. A strong alpha hero is of utmost importance—he should be powerful, mysterious and totally attractive to the heroine. While action-packed and mission-oriented, the scope of these stories should be more contained, with additional focus placed on character development and erotic situations.

All stories should be capable of standing alone; all loose ends need to be tied up, and the relationship between hero and heroine should resolve itself in a satisfying manner.

For published authors, this line is a great way to explore more erotic scenarios and different fantasy elements. Unpublished authors are welcome as well.

Only complete manuscripts submitted electronically will be considered from unpublished authors; no partials or queries, please. Submissions should be sent as a Word-compatible attachment.

Submissions should also follow standard formatting guidelines and should be double-spaced and typed in a clear, legible font on numbered pages. Author name and title should appear as a header or footer on each page.
