They changed the book section around about a month or so ago, and since then I've not seen any Blaze books. They usually have them out near the end of the month, so I'm gonna check again this weekend.  I'll be bummed if they quit getting them.  Will have to go to K-Mart if so to see if they still carry them.  *shudder*   I hate our K-Mart because there are only 1-2 registers open AT ANY GIVEN TIME, no matter if there are 2 people in line or 20.

Do you have Kroger stores there?  The larger stores here always seem to have lots of Blaze titles.

Amen about Kmart, I hate ours too! Never enough cash registers open and half their items are never priced or have a shelf tag. For some odd reason though our kmart has a larger book selection than our Walmart does.

I ran into the woman stocking them once and s he told me they stagger them so not all show up the end of the previous month..think it took almost 2 weeks for the new blazes to show up.

Neither my Target nor Wally's carries Harlequin any longer.  Target stopped a few years ago and when they built the new Walmart, they never have.  :-(

The only place I can buy them is at Barnes & Noble now.

We don't have a KMart anymore and the WalMart is terrible and hardly has any books.  I quit shopping there several years ago and started buying my Harlequins online from eHarlequin.  I've been really happy with that decision.  They have all the books, you can buy them a month ahead (so this month the September and October books are available), they are 20% off, they have a lot of good sales, shipping is free if you spend $25, and you don't have to use a credit card if you don't want to, they'll send you an invoice and you can mail a check.  I always order on the first of the month and get my books by the 15th.   Usually earlier than that, but the 15th is the latest that I've received them.

Really?  You don't have to use a credit card?  Hmmm, I might check into that.  I do have a credit card but don't like using it.

Yep, no credit card needed for eHarlequin--I like to look at mine before I pay for them so I have them send an invoice. My Target and Walmart still carry them though.

ETA: If you get the eHarlequin newsletter by email, they usually have discount codes in them!
