Indie publisher Salt has launched a digital imprint, Embrace Books, comprising four series of erotica and romance titles.
Red Velvet is billed as "sexy, sophisticated romance", while After Dark is an "intense, page-scorching romance and erotica" strand. There are also two historical series, Embrace Regency and Embrace Historicals, with the latter covering women's historical fiction which is not primarily romance.
Embrace editor Jane Holland said: "I'm delighted to be heading this new digital fiction initiative for Salt Publishing. Romance fiction is all about community, and we are building a marvellous new reading and writing community around these first romance titles. Judging by early sales, Embrace Books looks set to be a winner."
