My mother's wish list contains:

"all titles from Silhouettte Nocturn or Harliquin Nocturn series w/ various authors."  (And then a list of exceptions she already has).

Is there any way on PBS to look for a specific imprint like Nocturn?

Thanks!

Kayote, I had the best results for your question by using the Book Browser option under the Search function button (located right next to Home button near the top of the page). On the Book Browser page, you can insert the word Nocturne (notice the spelling) in the box labelled Keyword or ISBN. Then select Romance in the box labelled Genre, You can select only Posted Books at the top of that page and will then see a list of approx 200  books. The Silhouette Nocturne titles were published 2010 or earlier; the Harlequin Nocturne titles 2010 or later.

I hope this helps.

The Advanced Search lets you enter the publisher to limit the search. So you can have the keyword and publisher. Even add the specific author.

Ah.  I tried doing that, but I didn't know she'd spelled it wrong.

THANK YOU!

(Christmas is much easier when I can order books rather than buy them.  PBS has served me well in the past, looks like it will again. :)

(Edited to add, since was posting same time as previous post--I never noticed the publisher box.  Useful!)

I had tried Advanced Search first, but for some reason, putting Nocturne in  the publisher field didn't bring as many results as it should have - only 2 or 3, I think. That's why I recommended the more complicated search.
