USA Today Besteller List, Week Ending February 18, 2007

There are no new faces on the list this week, but there were also no new releases last week. I expect that next week Nora Roberts’ alter ego will be up in the Number 1 slot. I’ve been resisting the expensive ebook purchase but it sounds like the book is a doozy. My bookseller friend said it might be one of the best of the series featuring a very serious impediment to Eve and Roarke’s seemingly unshakeable marriage. Gah. Must resist. Must.

Irish Dreams, Nora Roberts (Silh Special Releasees), $7.99, No. 8 (Peak 2).
The Dream-Hunter, Sherrilyn Kenyon, St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99, No. 11 (Peak 3).
Most Likely To Die, Lisa Jackson, Beverly Barton, Wendy Corsi Staub (Zebra),$7.99 No. 12 (Peak 5).

Plum Lovin’, Janet Evanovich, (St. Martin’s Press), $16.95 No. 16, (Peak 1)
McKettrick’s Luck, Linda Lael Miller (HQN), $7.99, No. 20 (Peak 8).
Tongue in Chic, Christina Dodd, Signet, $7.99, No. 26 (Peak 17).
The Winter Lodge, Susan Wiggs (MIRA), $7.99, No. 27 (Peak 13).

Causing Havoc, Lori Foster (Berkley), $7.99, No. 32 (Peak 13).
Angels All Over Town, Luanne Rice (Bantam), $7.50, No. 42 (Peak 22).
Point Blank, Catherine Coulter (Jove), $7.99, No.46 (Peak 3)
What Price Love?, Stephanie Laurens (Avon), $7.99, No. 51 (Peak 15).

All Night Long, Jayne Ann Krentz (Jove), $7.99, No. 53 (Peak 33).
Natural Born Charmer, Susan Elizabeth Phillips (William Morrow), $24.95, No. 57 (Peak 21). I find this to be a bit shocking. I would have thought that SEP and her book would have greater staying power and would have made it higher up the list.
