Any ideas???

I've noticed lots of deals posted on Harlequins but not many seem to move, what would inspire you to order some?

I usually look for specific types or storylines along with deals of these types of books and gread deals. Someone pretty regularly  posts deals on these that have been as much as 10/1 or more with 'mystery'boxes. I just requested a lot from someone on the love/romance forum who's doing 5/1 on these (she posts the deals in her sig line). usually I look for 3/1 and sometimes I've ordered them in 2/1 or even individually if I was trying to finish a series or wanted the book enough.

from looking at  your shelf you don't seem to have a lot of any particular type harlequins/silhouettes but have a mixture of these and love inspired. I've seen love inspired posted in the subject line of a deal go 3/1 and sometimes 2/1 depending onthe titles. also the blaze title you have is a good one and blaze is pretty popular in the harlequin line. you others are pretty broad in their appeal (at least to me)..you have one by  maureen childs that is part of a series that 's pretty good for silhouette that was discussed a while back on the love/romance forum; a few with the cowboy them and others from different lines so I'm not sure how a deal would work. you have other good books on your shelf though..sometimes if someone's done a 3/1 for instance I've gotten some harlequin type books as part of the deal if I saw some I liked.

so, not sure what would help you move these other than a deal and maybe putting the deal in your sig line so it can be seen.

that's a good idea! you have the perfect selection for a good variety...esp since I know that blaze title is good and the marine book..I also have the gayle roper suspense in my tbr pile..yours would be a good way to try some variety!
