I just bought some Harlequin books... WTF?

I was in a local independent bookstore today scouting out copies of Hard Case Crime books to add to my collection, since news broke that Dorchester is going digital. Didn't find any additional HHC books... but instead found these!

"Dangerous Dames! Exotic Romps! Cold-Blooded Murder - 1950s Style!"

Why the heck didn't I know about these Harlequin Vintage books?

Never underestimate the power of brick-and-mortar bookstores with the covers turned out on the shelves.

yep and don't forget the four book Mills & Boon Horror series from the seventies

The Blood of Dracula, The Hound of Frankenstein, and I think the last two were Adam and Rig 59.

It's always odd when we discover that a specialist publisher diversified.
