Random House Publishing Group will relaunch its Loveswept imprint as a “digital-exclusive imprint,” reviving a romance line that originated at Bantam Books in the 1980s. Explore more than 900 titles from the original line at RomanceWiki.

The original Loveswept imprint featured early work by writers like Sandra Brown, Janet Evanovich and Tami Hoag. Random House will also revive the original tagline: “Love stories you’ll never forget by authors you’ll always remember.” The books will also be released in a trans-Atlantic partnership with Random House Group U.K.’s Transworld Publishers division.

Here’s more about the line: “The 2011 Loveswept publishing program will be a digital-exclusive imprint, comprised of original, newly written e-books, as well as beloved Ballantine Bantam Dell romances and classic Loveswept titles.
