Headline romance imprint Headline Eternal has acquired Eversea, a self-published new adult novel.
Associated publisher Sherise Hobbs bought British Commonwealth rights in three titles by author Natasha Boyd from Elaine Spencer at The Knight Agency.
Eversea is the first in a series featuring Hollywood film star Jack Eversea, who goes to sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina, to escape the tabloid glare and his increasingly vapid life, where he meets local girl Keri Ann Butler.
A UK e-book of Eversea will replace the self-published edition immediately with a paperback to follow in the spring.
Boyd was born in Copenhagen and lived in South Africa and the UK before moving to Atlanta, Georgia.
Hobbs said: “I instantly fell in love with Natasha Boyd’s exciting blend of raw emotion and sexy Southern charm. We’re thrilled to be bringing her to Headline’s Eternal list and our growing community of romance fans.”
The sequel to Eversea – Forever, Jack - will be published by Headline Eternal this winter.
