It was a slow week for romance book sales. Only the really big names and Hannah Howell’s, Highland Savage, are on the list.
Susannah’s Garden, Debbie Macomber (Mira), $7.99, No. 10 (Peak No. 4 ).
Cover of Night, Linda Howard (Ballantine), $7.99, No. 17 (Peak No. 6). Paperback release.
Born in Death, J.D. Robb (Berkley), $7.99, No. 27 (Peak No. 5).
The Witness, Sandra Brown (Warner), $6.99, No. 30 (Peak 13). Last week, the book was 45 and the week before it was 60. This book has legs.
The Wrong Hostage, Elizabeth Lowell (Avon), $7.99, No. 32 (Peak No. 11) paperback release.
Baby Proof, Emily Giffin (St. Martin’s Griffin) $13.95, No. 34. I saw this at the front of the store at my Barnes and Noble in its own little stand.
Don’t Look Down, Jennifer Crusie, Bob Mayer (St. Martin’s Press). $7.99 No. 55 (Peak 40). The paperback showed up on the extended NYT List. It is still selling strong though my eyebrows shot up when I received the arc to their next book and the back cover proclaimed a hardcover print run of 150,000.
Raintree: Inferno, Linda Howard (Silhouette Nocturne), $5.25, No. 92 (Peak 40). I saw this make it on the extended paperback NYT list.
Highland Savage, Hannah Howell (Zebra), $6.99, No. 98 (Peak 59). I vow I am buying this book this week. Maybe even today.
Wolf River, Jill Gregory, Bantam, $6.99, No. 103 (Peak No. 75).
When I Fall in Love, Lynn Kurland (Jove), $7.99, No. 112 (Peak 63).

Night Lost, Lynn Viehl (Signet), $6.99, No. 142 (Peak 48).
