The imprint, which was popular in the 1980s and 1990s, originated at Bantam Books and has been dormant for a dozen years. It relaunches in August with eight new works. According to Random House, one new ebook will be released each month in the fall.
Loveswept helped launch the careers of authors such as Janet Evanovich and Tami Hoag. Some popular past titles will be revived, including This Fierce Splendor by best-selling author Iris Johansen - although I'm guessing it will get an updated cover.
The Loveswept tagline - Love stories you'll never forget by authors you'll always remember - is also coming back.
According to Publishers Weekly, Sue Grimshaw, category specialist and editor-at-large, will host a new website, RomanceAtRandom.com, to discuss all things romance while also promoting Loveswept and Ballantine Bantam Dell titles.
