Hodder signs 11 from Armentrout

Hodder & Stoughton has bought 11 titles from Jennifer L Armentrout, including six young adult paranormal novels.

Kate Howard acquired UK and Commonwealth rights from Lorella Belli at the Lorella Belli Literary Agency on behalf of US publisher Entangled.

The books include six titles in the YA Lux series, a paranormal standalone called Unchained, and four adult romance titles in the Gamble Brother series.

Howard said: "The differences between the books just go to demonstrate Jennifer’s versatility, but the common elements across them all are her inimitable storytelling flair and  her ability to create fantastic chemistry between her leading characters. I love, too, her unique ability to inject humour into her writing without losing any of that all-important page-turning intensity."

Hodder is already the publisher for Armentrout's Covenant series, which has been optioned for television by Herrick Entertainment; the standalone paranormal Cursed and the YA thriller Don’t Look Back, out this month.

The first five books in the Lux series, the first two books in the Gamble Brother series and the standalone Unchained are slated for UK publication this spring.
