Mills & Boon introduce surround-sound steamy romance novels for bored housewives – Telegraph.co.uk
A spokesman said: âRecorded on location, and perfectly capturing the sounds and atmosphere of a hot, sultry night, the lead characters from the novel are brought to life to deliver a highly charged, intimate listening experience â including a seductive midnight swim – that will undoubtedly leave listeners wanting more.â
Kendrick, who has sold more than 25 million novels, worked with Heart, the radio brand, to create the first 3D sound recording installment.
Lisa Milton, Mills &Â BoonÂ executive publisher, said: âWeâre hugely proud of Sharon and the publication of her 100th Mills &Â BoonÂ title and especially excited to see the reaction to the 3D sound extract.
âIt is outstanding technology and I am thrilled that HarperCollins & Mills &Â BoonÂ are at the forefront of this innovation â it really does bring Sharonâs milestone 100th book to life, and believe me when I say you have never heard love like this before!â
Kendrick, a married mother-of-two from London who currently lives in Winchester, said: âI never dreamed when I wrote my first story back in 1991 that I would be celebrating my 100th book 25 years later, and in such style.
âIt is amazing to hear A Royal Vow of Convenience come to life in 3D sound.
âTo hear my characters, and to feel the chemistry between them, in such an intimate, immersive recording is incredible.â
It is the latest development from Mills &Â Boon, who are reported to sell one book every five seconds in the UK.
Earlier this year, the publishers launched a new series of tongue-in-cheek guides to modern womanhood, mimicking the popular spoof vintage books by the likes of Ladybird.
