Century and Arrow have signed a four-book deal with bestselling saga author Katie Flynn.
Editor Gillian Holmes bought UK and Commonwealth rights in the titles from Caroline Sheldon at the Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.
Flynn has previously published 35 novels, including The Runaway and First Love, Last Love.
Cornerstone plans to publish two books a year, one in summer and one at Christmas, for the next two years. The first book of the new contract will be published in hardback in August 2014, and in paperback in November 2014.
Holmes said: "The quality of Katie’s storytelling is remarkable, and her continued popularity and longevity in an incredibly tough market bears witness to this."
