Lionhearted is a romance epublisher. They state that books are released as paperback and ebooks. But while they publish ebooks it seems they don't (or didn't) accept email submission of manuscripts.
"If an editor is interested in seeing your work, they will ask you to send the material via postal mail. "Requested Material" should be written clearly on the outside of the mailing envelope/package. Include a return envelope with prepaid postage if you want your material returned, or it will be recycled."
The paperback option is described as 'not POD' but also doesn't seem to involve being on the shelf in stores. Also most of the titles they list on Amazon are trade sized (and priced).
"We do not stock shelves with inventory that would be considered "old" in a month and covers stripped and books throw away."
They seem to have a smallish output (which,IMHO, is a good thing) and to get got reviews including from print bastions like Romantic Times. However the cover art ranges from okay to terrible.
An Absolute Write thread suggests that this publisher became inactive a few years ago. It is hard to tell from the website, but Amazon suggests that they have had only one new release since 2007.
