07/13/2003 Entry: "Lackey to Launch Luna Books; Gilman to follow"
Publisher's Weekly has more information on the new Harlequin imprint, Luna, particularly that their first book will be THE FAIRY GODMOTHER by Mercedes Lackey. Appearing in hardcover in January 2004, THE FAIRY GODMOTHER will be a retelling of the Cinderella story. The other Luna books will be once per month, most likely in trade paperback size and price. Other Luna titles include Nebula Award–winning author Catherine Asaro's THE CHARMED SPHERE (Febuary 2004) and Sarah Zettel's IN CAMELOT'S SHADOW (March 2004), billed as an Arthurian story with a touch of Beauty and the Beast.
Go to Publisher's Weekly for the full article. It's titled, "What's New Under the Sun", and is 3/4 of the way down the page with a grey background.
And as announced in Laura Anne Gilman's newsgroup:
Gilman has a "Three-book deal, the characters are Wren & Sergei and the Retrievers Gang, described as 'think Moonlighting meets To Catch a Thief seasoned with a healthy dollop of magic'. Only not. Contemporary fantasy/mystery with a healthy dollop of relationship."

Wow, that is a hideous cover.

Actually, having seen the actual cover now that they are doing the rounds for publicity purposes, the image shown here doesn't do it justice. It isn't a garish green, more a turqoise, and actually very good!
