(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.

Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)

Over 8000 Harlequin Romance titles $1.99 Each

palmerWow! As if that last list wasn’t enough, I found more books on sale!  I am not sure whether it is a sale or a price slash, but right now, over 8000 Harlequin titles are available for just $1.99 each! That’s right, I said eight thousand! A quick browse shows a wide variety: Lines like Historicals, Intrigue, Harlequin Presents, Treasures, Blaze and more. There are also some of the vintage Harlequin titles included as well. There seems to be a bit of everything from vintage to paranormal, making this is a GREAT DEAL for romance readers! I have no idea how long these prices will last.
