Weirdly Don’t Bet Against Me by Deanna Favre made the extended list (no. 146) weeks after its release which I guess means that it is a) a good christmas present or b) good word of mouth. I suppose a combination of both.
Jeaniene Frost’s debut, Halfway to the Grave, and CL Wilson’s, Lady of Light and Shadows, a follow up to her debut, Lord of the Fading Lands, showed up in the top 100. Interestingly, Frost’s book is number 23 on the extended NYT List to be released on Sunday despite not making the top 50 of the USA Today list. Kresley Cole’s Wicked Deeds on a Winters Night debuted higher on the USA Today list and was 13 on the NYT list.

Lady of Light and Shadows, C.L. Wilson (Love Spell), $7.99, No. 88 (debut). CL Wilson peaked at No. 127 with book 1, Lord of the Fading Lands, so she’s catching on.
Free Fall, Fern Michaels (Zebra), $6.99, No. 91 (Peak 8).
My Fair Mistress, Tracy Anne Warren (Ballantine), $6.99, No. 92 (debut).
Mine Till Midnight, Lisa Kleypas (St. Martin’s Paperbacks), $7.99, No. 95 (Peak 5). This is her 6th week on the list which ties for the best that any of her books have performed on the bestseller list: Someone to Watch Over Me, Suddenly You, and Scandal in Spring spent 6 weeks on the USA today list. Can she make it another week? I think its iffy. This past Tuesday was another big release date and so I think she might get pushed off. It was a good run, though.

Cut Throat, Sharon Sala (Mira), $7.99, No. 113 (Peak 59).
Forever After, Catherine Anderson (Avon), $5.99, No. 134 (debut).
The Heir, Barbara Taylor Bradford (St.Martin’s Press), $25.95, No. 136 (debut). I’m not sure whether this is even romance.
Pandora's Daughter, Iris Johansen (St. Martin’s Press), $25.95, No. 139 (Peak 58). May be the biggest drop on the list.
The Boleyn Inheritance, Philippa Gregory (Touchstone), $16.00, No. 141 (Peak 36).
