The mainstreaming of erotic novels continues. Sylvia Day’s Reflected in You goes to #1 on the new NYT Paperback trade Best Seller list, just above E.L. James’s Fifty Shades trilogy. The first in Day’s Crossfire series, Bared to You, is at #7 on the list, after 20 weeks.
Day has published several other books in various genres. One of her historicals, Seven Years to Sin (Kensington; Brilliance Audio) also debuts on this list, at #18, after being re-released with a new cover. Day has said that Bared to You, “in some ways .. feels like an extension of Seven Years to Sin … even though they’re set 200 years apart.”
