National bestselling thriller author and two-time RITA nominee Nina Bruhns named Editorial Director of Entangled Publishing’s new romantic suspense category imprint.
Dead Sexy, the Nina Bruhns Collection, is aimed at readers of romantic suspense and thrillers who favor Harlequin’s popular Intrigue and Romantic Suspense category romances. The Dead Sexy Collection is an exciting addition to Entangled’s growing imprint list. In today’s exploding ebook market, strong sales are predicted for the digital-only line, launching in May 2012.
Nina Bruhns’s own romantic suspense novels have won numerous awards, including three prestigious Daphne du Maurier Awards for Best Overall Mystery-Suspense Book of the Year, three RT Bookclub Reviewers Choice Awards, a National Readers Choice Award, five Dorothy Parker Awards of Excellence, and an Independent Publishers Award. “Nina Bruhns’s reputation and proven success as a Silhouette and Harlequin author, her thrillers with Berkley, as well as her past experience as an editor and pioneer in the digital marketplace, all make her the perfect fit for our Dead Sexy romantic suspense imprint,” says publisher Elizabeth Pelletier.
Freelance editor and award-winning author Anna DeStefano has joined the team as an Editor for the Dead Sexy line, and journalist Vicki Wilkerson has taken on the Managing Editor position. With an unbeatable royalty structure for authors and the option of mass international distribution through Perseus Distribution’s digital arm Constellation, the new line has already wooed such top-tier authors as Stephanie Bond, author of the bestselling BODY MOVERS series, who will appear in a Dead Sexy anthology planned for 2012, and New York Times Bestseller Caridad Piñeiro, whose first book with Dead Sexy will be released in June of 2012.
“I plan to bring a fresh eye for content and a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to Entangled’s new digital-only category line,” Ms. Bruhns says. “I love romantic suspense, and I truly believe in the category model of short, vibrant, page-turning stories. The Nina Bruhns Collection will sweep our readers into a pulse-pounding world of danger, passion, and intrigue, featuring strong, larger-than-life heroes and smart, believable heroines. In short, these books will be Dead Sexy.”
Dead Sexy, The Nina Bruhns Collection, will offer readers a tempting variety of their favorite kinds of stories within the ever-popular romantic suspense genre. “All with a happily ever after, of course!” Ms. Bruhns adds.
