A natural extension to the Harlequin business; Carina Press builds on our digital strength and gives us greater flexibility in the type of editorial we acquire from authors and offer to readers. We connect authors with a great story to tell, with readers who will love to read it.

At Carina Press you’ll find weekly releases of ebooks from talented authors in a wide variety of genres, with new releases added every Monday. Find them on our homepage, or see our weekly release schedule on our New Releases page.

Whether you like to read contemporary romance, steampunk, erotic romance, gay/lesbian fiction, mystery, science-fiction, fantasy, or any number of other fiction genres – you’ll find something to love at Carina Press.

The People Behind Carina Press




Angela James, Editorial Director

Executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin’s digital-first imprint, and veteran of the digital publishing industry, Angela James is a well-known advocate for digital publishing. James has enjoyed a long and varied career in digital publishing, including launching and serving as executive editor for Samhain Publishing. James frequently travels to regional, national and international writing conferences to meet with authors and readers, and present workshops on digital publishing for both authors and readers of all genres of fiction.

While Angela doesn’t do a lot of editing these days, she still enjoys reading submissions in contemporary romance, cyberpunk and BDSM/erotic romance. And she’s still looking for the author who will write a space cowboy book for her in the vein of Firefly!
