eBooks Feature Seven Historical Royal Weddings

TORONTO, April 1, 2011 - Harlequin Enterprises Limited (www.eharlequin.com), a global
leader in series romance and one of the world's leading publishers of books
for women, announced today the release of seven special Royal Wedding eBook
novellas to celebrate the April wedding of the decade between Prince William

The Royal Weddings collection features an intriguing mix of historical
fact and fiction that centers around seven real-life royal weddings from the
twelfth to the nineteenth century. Six of the nuptials in the collection
feature Prince William's forebears, while a seventh focuses on Emperor

weddings. From Eleanor of Aquitaine to Queen Victoria, these royal romances
through the ages bring history vividly to life."

The titles include Terri Brisbin's WHAT THE DUCHESS WANTS (Eleanor,
Duchess of Aquitaine and Henry of Anjou, the future Henry II, 1152), Michelle
