BURN FOR ME! ILONA ANDREWS! I can't wait! My most anticipated book of 2014 :D
2. Steamkitty
Please help. I'm sorry if I've missed something, somewhere, but your lists confuse me. Does N/A stand for New Adult, Not Applicable, Not Available, or what? I guess I confuse easily these days. Also, what's the difference between New Adult and Young Adult?
3. Scarlettleigh
@Steamkitty I'm another reader and blogger on the site, I'm sure the H & H team will answer you -- but until they do, here is some info.

-- if you are looking at N/A after the title, and then author --reading left to right then that means it is not part of a series or not applicable.

Carolina Blues Virginia Kantra Dare Island
Mr. Miracle Debbie Macomber N/A

Carolina Blues is part of the Dare Island series, but Mr. Miracle is a stand-alone and not part of a series.

I'm sure others on the site have better explanation the New Adult and Young Adult -- you can do a search up at the top --but the quick answer based on my understanding is the New Adult has more sex, and different take on coming of age. Also New Adult can feature individuals from 18-24, where Y.A. is usually younger.

@Steamkitty -- Hello! Apologies for any confusion, but we're glad you asked so we can clarify. Scarlettleigh did a great job explaining--N/A in the series column does indeed stand for "not applicable" and means the book is a standalone and not part of a series.

New Adult is a newer term and one that people are still trying to define. At H&H we tend to view it as romances with heroes and/or heroines who are just starting to make their way in the adult world, whether that be in college or their first full-time job or what have you, and all the angst and romance that can come with these transitions. Hope this helps!
