Missed Them the First Time? Read These Classic Romance Rereleases

by Karen Green

For those who get to discover something they missed the first time and those who get to rediscover a forgotten favorite, these eight classic romances should head straight to the top of this autumn’s must-read list.

With some titles originally released nearly forty years ago, these are the stories that just couldn’t stay in the past. The covers have been updated but the swoon-worthy storylines remain just as juicy as they were when first published. Timeless and engaging, these classic romance rereleases are a treat for new and returning fans, and as a bonus, many of these books are now available for the first time as eBooks! Take a look at the great novels that just had to have another moment in the spotlight:

    I’m so glad Harlequin is re-releasing some of the classics. There are quite a few that I would love to buy as an e-book. But would you consider leaving the old titles, so we can recognize them?

    I read the sheikh’s pleasure it was an excellent read. I hope that
    Harlequin does put these books on e-books. I would love to read a
    lot of older books on e books if we can not get them through used book
    stores. Thank you Harlequin when I can not sleep I love reading romance
    novels. They help you get a pleasant night’s sleep.

    I have been reading Presents series since they first were published. I like having access on my e reader As I can adjust the size of font for my older eyes.
    The classics have some of my favourite authors like Carol Mortimer, Anne Mather and Penny Jordan.
