John Grisham’s Camino Island is 3 Weeks Strong

For the third week in a row, John Grisham’s Camino Island continues to slay the competition. I think this is the first adult fiction book of 2017 to stay at #1 for more than 2 weeks. Over 55,000 print sales strong, and about to hit the 500k sales mark for complete sales. Ruth Ware is still holding strong with The Woman In Cabin 10 at over 21,000 in print sales, and is about to also hit the 500k mark soon. Paula Hawkins’ Into the Water isn’t far behind, and expect 500k in sale by the end of this summer.

Other notable authors make some major strides: Dean Koontz with The Silent Corner, Janet Evanovich’s Dangerous Minds and Nora Roberts’ Come Sundown all hit over 20,000 combined sales this week. New for romance this week, Sabrina Jefferies’ The Pleasure of Passion only sold 5,000 in mass market paperback, and Kat Martin’s Beyond Reason isn’t far behind (maybe they hit 10k total with digital sales?). Julia Quinn, Christine Feehan and Susan Mallery are not far behind.



Over at the USA Today top 100, the first new romance to hit the list, does so at #22 with Lauren Blakely’s The Knocked Up Plan.

Amazon: Heartstopper by Lauren Landish, .99 cents New Adult



Roxy Price

After ten months without a date, I’m eager to go to the hottest new ticket in town, Club Jasmine.

I deserve a night of fun. I’ve worked hard and I finally got a promotion. But for one night, I’m going to let loose.

That’s when I see him.

The drop-dead gorgeous Jake Stone.

With his god-like physique, pure blue eyes, and chiseled jawline, he might be the hottest guy I’ve ever laid eyes on. A total heartstopper.

The man’s probably a player. Then again, maybe that’s what I need—a man who knows what he’s got, knows how to use it, and knows how to make me scream to the heavens.

Screw it. You only live once.

But when I go in Monday morning to meet my new boss, I’m greeted by that same irresistible smile.

And Mr. Stone is making it perfectly clear that strictly professional is not in his vocabulary.


Amazon: Takedown by Dez Burke, .99 cents Romantic Suspense



She thinks I’m her Guardian Angel. I know I’m her worst nightmare.
I thought I had everything under control. Until the day I saved Maggie’s life.
Most men would melt if a girl like her looked at them the way she looks at me, as if I was her savior, her protector.
She sees the muscles, the tats, the hero the media makes me out to be.
I’d give anything to be that man, to hear her screaming my name as I showed her exactly what a Marine can do in bed, but I can’t let her in.
What I had to do in Afghanistan made me a monster.
If I let her in… I might let it out.
I belong over there, in hell.
I don’t know how to live in the heaven that is Maggie.
She doesn’t realize how hard I’m fighting to keep her away.
She doesn’t know who I really am.
I’m irredeemable.
She should run.
Before she unleashes a monster that can’t be controlled.

Four hundred years ago, Wilder and the other members of the Arctic Brotherhood were captured and tortured by the leader of the Siberian werewolves. Wilder is still haunted by memories of that night, when he wasn’t able to protect his leader.

Now the Siberian wolf is on the loose and seeking revenge. Not only must Wilder lead the brotherhood, he must fight the attraction he feels toward its newest recruit, Jenny Piper. Jenny offers Wilder a glimpse of the life he can’t have. As the brotherhood races against time to save humanity from the horror their enemies unleashed on the world, Wilder must reach inside himself to find the leader the brotherhood needs and the mate Jenny craves.
