Watch Out Bestseller Lists, Here Come Presents!

by Amy Wilkins, Harlequin Digital

I've had two pieces of great news about Harlequin Presents from retail. First, the editors were thrilled to point out that Harlequin Presents are 7 out of 10 Waldens bestsellers for the week ending Dec. 26 (only Diana Palmer and Susan Mallery broke the streak) and that past writing competition winners Lynn Raye Harris and Lucy King continue their impressive debuts by ringing it at #2 and #8. Congratulations! Here is the rest of the top 10 Presents:

#1 DESERT PRINCE, BRIDE OF INNOCENCE by Lynne Graham
#2 CAVELLI'S LOST HEIR by Lynn Raye Harris
#3 RUTHLESS BOSS, ROYAL MISTRESS by Natalie Anderson
#4 THE ITALIAN BILLIONAIRE'S SECRET MISTRESS by Sharon Kendrick
#5 PRINCE OF MONTEZ, PREGNANT MISTRESS by Sabrina Philips
#8 BOUGHT: DAMSEL IN DISTRESS by Lucy King
#10 TEMPORARY BOSS, PERMANENT MISTRESS by Kate Hardy

AND due to a change in sales tracking, Harlequin Presents are now tracked on the USA Today bestseller list…and 6 titles made it for the week ending January 3! Congratulations to the following:

#76  DESERT PRINCE, BRIDE OF INNOCENCE by Lynne Graham
#108 RUTHLESS BOSS, ROYAL MISTRESS by Natalie Anderson
#112 CAVELLI'S LOST HEIR by Lynn Raye Harris
#118 PRINCE OF MONTEZ, PREGNANT MISTRESS by Sabrina Philips
#123 POWERFUL ITALIAN, PENNILESS HOUSEKEEPER by India Grey
#124 THE ITALIAN BILLIONAIRE'S SECRETARY MISTRESS by Sharon Kendrick

So, what shall we conquer next, ladies? NYT? 😉

    Congratulations ladies on the bestseller standings. What a great way to start the year!
    Now wouldn’t it be great if Presents were calculated in the NYT bestseller lists?! We can dream, can’t we?
    Happy New Year everyone. Let’s hope it’s a fabulous one for one and all.
