By Ann Leslie Tuttle, Senior Editor
If you are looking for larger-than-life characters battling matters of life and death in a world that seems downright surreal, you need look no further than Harlequin Nocturne. Each month, Nocturne publishes two contemporary paranormal romance titles, ranging in length from 80 to 85,000 words. These are fast-paced, action-oriented, sexy titles featuring vulnerable yet brave heroines and heroes to die for—especially since that’s usually part of the job description when you fall for one of these immortals!
With the nights getting longer and creepier as Halloween approaches, we’ve got the perfect lineup to round out an exciting year for the line that began with a cover redesign. Doranna Durgin’s October release, CLAIMED BY THE DEMON, features a tortured hero controlled by a demon blade. In OUT OF THE NIGHT by Trish Milburn, a diner owner and a vampire cop find love in post-pandemic Manhattan.
In November, Heather Graham headlines THE KEEPERS: CHRISTMAS IN SALEM along with Deborah LeBlanc, Kathleen Pickering and Beth Ciotta. In this holiday anthology, Christmas is coming to Salem, but four powerful Keepers must save their community as a strange, eternal night creeps over the town.

Passion and secrets collide in DARK WOLF RUNNING when a very Alpha Male decides he’ll do whatever it takes to claim the woman whose made his sleepless nights a living hell.
