New to Harlequin
Recently, many people have become rather enamored of Harlequin comics.
For those unfamiliar with them, here is a brief explanation of just what exactly Harlequin is.
What is "Harlequin"?
Quite simply, "Harlequin" is the name of a publishing company.
However, it was originally the name for a trickster in French plays dating back as far as the 11th Century. Over time, this trickster developed into a romantic hero (though he didn't lose his mischievous ways!).
As such, the books published by Harlequin are romantic in nature. They have sold over six billion titles in total, making them one of the world's leading publishers of romance.
Harlequin novels are now available in comic format, complete with gorgeous characters and dramatic scenes, thanks to Japanese manga artists.
You may be unsure as to whether or not you might like Harlequin stories, so here is a little quiz!
- Do you like reading/watching love stories?
- Do you want the hero and heroine to live happily ever after?
- Do you like hot guys?
- Do you want to experience a breathtaking romance?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then without doubt, you'll enjoy Harlequin comics!
Each story follows a particular pattern, which is explained below.
The depth and power of the stories stir potent emotions in readers when, after overcoming all the obstacles standing in the way of their love, the characters find a way to be together. Our readers know that the Harlequin promise of a thrilling and satisfying happy ending is always kept.
Just as sought after is the "secret baby" story, in which the heroine must raise the hero's child without his knowledge after they've tragically separated.
Whatever mood you are in, we have a story for you. Playboys, sheikhs and noblemen abound in our comics. Some stories are tales of destiny and others revolve around tricks of fate. One thing they all have in common, though, is that they are enchanting epics of love.
Each hero has traits that set him apart. Some are brooding noblemen or passionate Italians. Others are enigmatic sheikhs or charming cowboys.
No matter your taste, you're sure to find a hero you will adore.
They're kind with warm hearts and, generally, aren't accustomed to love and romance. Some have zero experience with men, while others are divorced or single mothers. All of them are just waiting for the right guy to come along and bring them out of their shells.
We also feature series, where each volume within a series can be read separately but if all the volumes are read, a larger, connected story reveals itself. If, for example, a series is called The Crane Brothers, each volume will concern a different brother's romance, and you will not need to have read the first one to understand the last.
