Yet more notes from the Harlequin/Silhouette spotlight at RWA National 2007:

Silhouette Romantic Suspense:
55,000-60,000 words
2 new authors in last 2 months
less details of suspense or mystery, but must have suspense
different from Intrigue-SRS is driven by Romance
Military, law enforcement, internation setting, very light paranormal

Harlequin Intrigue
55,000-60,000 words
2 new authors recently
breathtaking romantic suspense
fast paced, not predictable
mystery, woman in jeopardy
interweave the romance and suspense
not graphic, no swear words
sensuality varies with plot
6 books a month
