Harlequin Anniversary

This month is the 70th anniversary for Harlequin Books. Unlike the 60th anniversary Harlequin is not celebrating. This, no doubt, is due to Harlequin's sale a few years ago from Torstar to News Corporation. 

The May 2019 book, From Heiress to Mom, is number 4665 in the Harlequin Romance series. This is a continuance of the original numbering; the longest  numbering sequence of any mass market paperback publisher. Number 5000 should be seen in the first half of 2026 if nothing changes for the series.

Below are May books from 1949, 1959, 2009 and 2019.
