Lovestruck Submission Guidelines

Fall in love with the possibilities…

Find love where you least expect it with Lovestruck, Entangled’s smart new category romantic comedy imprint. Our focus is on memorable, oftentimes hilarious “meet-cutes” between strangers, a strong romantic connection, sizzling sexual tension, and satisfying endings that leave readers smitten. We are looking for fresh voices, witty dialogue, and twists on classic tropes. Lovestruck romances are driven by the hero and heroine’s connection—their meeting may have been coincidental (or accidental!), but there’s no denying the sparks flying between them, or the way they connect on a romantic level.

Specifically, we would like to see:

  • Romantic comedies are what we do best. We like our stories to be lively, playful, and sensual, beginning with an unexpected “meet-cute” and ending with a swoon-worthy close.
  • Tropes! Think fake relationship, best friends-to-lovers, bait and switch, fish out of water, ugly duckling, older brother’s best friend, mistaken identity, enemies-to-lovers, matchmaker, sexy protectors, opposites attract, boardroom romance, etc.
  • Realistic heroes. Typically in their late-20s to mid-30s, Lovestruck heroes are self-assured and successful at what they do. The kind of guys women hope they’ll run into at the grocery store.
  • Our heroines are intelligent, modern women in their mid- to late-20s meeting the future love of their life in unusual, often hilariously unexpected ways.
  • Diversity. In addition to traditional M/F romance, we’re open to M/M and F/F category romance. Multicultural characters are welcome.
  • POV should be split 50/50 between the hero and heroine. 3rd person POV is preferred, but we will consider 1st person POV.
  • Moderate to high heat level. We prefer to keep the door open when the hanky panky begins!
  • Voices we love: Samanthe Beck, Tawna Fenske, Marissa Clarke, Kira Archer, Stefanie London, Shannon Stacey, Rachel Gibson, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Jennifer Crusie.
  • Movies that inspire us: The Proposal, Leap Year, Two Night Stand, Friends with Benefits, and Never Been Kissed (all with a little more heat!).

The fine print:

  • Manuscripts should be between 45k-60K words in length. We consider novellas on a case by case basis, especially when tied to existing Lovestruck series or part of a specific call for submissions.
  • Unless you are an established category romance author querying on proposal, manuscripts must be complete prior to submission.
  • Revised backlist titles are considered on a very limited case by case basis.
  • We accept both agented and unagented submissions at this time.
