Entangled Publishing Executive Publicity Director Misa Ramirez - FALL IN LOVE ONE STORY AT A TIME


Change is invigorating.  Moving.  Babies.  New relationships.  Change makes things feel fresh and new, don’t they?  Life gets bigger, your world expands, and suddenly everything is exciting.

In the publishing world, every single day brings change.  New authors acquired, new books releasing, new imprints forming.  It’s a fast-paced world, and one Entangled has embraced since its launch in 2011. 

We began with the simple goal of publishing great books while offering authors the best possible royalties.  Now, just two and a half years later, we are 13 imprints strong, our author list includes some of the most talented writers out there, and the team working behind the scenes couldn’t be more dynamic and passionate about what they do.

We live and breathe books, and it shows.

If you’ve never heard of Entangled, now is a great time to discover what so many already have.  We’re making readers fall in love one story at a time.


We have a novella for everyone.  With three novella imprints, Flirt, Flaunt, and Ever After (, as well as imprint specific novellas, there is plenty of opportunity to get your romance fix in a hour.

If you like your romance on the sweeter side, Bliss (  ) is for you.  At the heart of each Bliss is family, community, and happiness.  You’ll be wearing a smile and feeling satisfied after spending a few hours with one of our Bliss titles.

Indulgence ( )is what we like to call the sexy, sassy older sister of both Bliss and Brazen.  Where do you think they learned everything?  Indulgence was our first category romance imprint, and these stories still resonate with readers like no others.  They feature powerful heroes, passionate romance, and offer the happily ever after we all crave.  They are contemporary romances with fresh twists on the classic tropes. 

Into sexier reads?  Try Brazen ( ).  It’s the naughty little sister of Indulgence.  When you think of Brazen, think of steamy romances by some of the brightest new voices in romance.   They’re seductive.  They’re fast-paced.  They’re sexy.  And yes, in a Brazen, romance often starts in the bedroom. 

Like paranormal romance?  Break the rules with Covet ( ).  From Greek gods, to witches, to vampires, we have just the right touch of paranormal to satisfy every craving.  Covets are all set in a contemporary world, but things are never quite what they seem. 

Scandalous is your foray into historical romance. (   Just look at the covers of these amazing books!  You’ll be satisfied with the Dukes, Lairds, and Vikings of Scandalous.  They are the original alpha males!!!

Finally, if romantic suspense is your cup of tea and if contemporary alpha males do it for you, then Ignite (  (and the men of Ignite) are must reads.  Suspenseful, hot, page turners…  You won’t be able to put these books down.

Entangled Select and Edge, Embrace and Teen round out our lists.  These print and digital first lines for adult, new adult, and teen readers offer riveting, blockbuster reads you won’t soon forget. 

Because Entangled embraces change, we have the offerings we do, we are satisfying readers across the globe, and we can’t wait to see what happens next.   I hope you’ll try some of our books and experience what change reads like.

I think you’ll be satisfied.

Falling for Mr. Wrong, by Inara Scott

Looking for Mrs. Right…
Single father of three, Ross Bencher, knows the kind of woman he wants: someone predictable, reliable, and safe, who can give his kids the security they deserve. Someone entirely different from high-altitude mountaineer Kelsey. Kelsey bewitches him with her long legs and wild passion and is about as far from his ideal as a woman can get, but try telling that to his body. Or his heart…
Falling for Mr. Wrong…
When Kelsey agreed to fill in as a temporary nanny for her best friend’s agency before a big climbing expedition, she had no idea she’d be working for drop-dead sexy Ross Bencher, a man she can’t seem to keep her hands off. She knows if she wants to bring herself—and her father—back alive from the Himalayan Mountains, she can’t afford second-guessing, attachments, or distractions. But Ross’s blue eyes and strong hands leave her gasping…and questioning everything she’s ever known about love…

Once Upon a Wallflower, by Wendy Lyn Watson

A Perennial Wallflower…
When Mira Fitzhenry’s guardian arranges her engagement to one of the most scandalous, yet devastatingly handsome lords to ever grace the peerage, all of society is abuzz. After all, the man has left a trio of dead young women in his wake, including his first fiancĂ©e.
A Gothic Villain…
Expecting to scare the chit away within five minutes of meeting him, scarred and brooding Nicholas, the Viscount Ashfield, is intrigued by the unfashionably lovely Mira, but his family’s dark secret means he must fight his attractions. No matter what his heart wants.
As the wedding approaches, Nicholas and Mira grow ever closer, yet so does the very real danger. Will the truth bring Nicholas and Mira together or tear their love apart?

Trouble Comes Knocking, by Mary Duncanson

It’s hard not to answer when trouble comes knocking
A girl who can’t forget…
Twenty-two-year-old Lucy Carver is like Sherlock Holmes in ballet flats, but her eidetic memory is more albatross than asset, and something she usually keeps hidden. When she notices that something’s amiss at her dead-end job, she jumps at the chance to finally use her ability for good. That is, until, a man is murdered, and she becomes the target of the killer.
A detective on his first case…
Detective Eli Reyes is overbearing, pompous, way too hot for Lucy’s own good, and seems as determined to ruin her relationship with her boyfriend, John, as finding the murderer. He brings Lucy in on the case, thinking she can help him get to the truth, only to cut her loose when he realizes he’s gotten far more than he ever bargained for.
A past that won’t go away…
When memories from her childhood invade her present, Lucy discovers a mystery bigger than she could have imagined. With the killer still after her, and Eli nowhere to be found, she takes things into her own hands, determined to expose the truth no matter what—before trouble comes knocking…again.

Bittersweet Magic, by Nina Croft

Roz has been indebted to the demon Asmodai for five hundred years, and her freedom is just around the corner. All she has to do is complete one last task for him—obtain a key that had been hidden in a church centuries ago.
Piers, the Head of the Order and an ancient vampire, is intrigued by the woman who comes to him for help. She’s beautiful and seemingly kind, but she’s hiding something. And he’ll find out who she is and what she really wants once he uses his power to get inside her head. But Piers has no idea that Roz is immune to his mind-control…or that he is simply a pawn in her dangerous mission for freedom.
