Recommended Reading Order and Complete List of All My Books
As you probably noticed already I have a lot of books released! Below is a list of each series with all the books in that series and I’ve added information about how the series connect together so you can decide if you want to read them out of order (which many people love to do!). If you aren’t sure which series to start with take my Book Matchmaker Quiz to get a customized suggestion.
Hall of Blood and Mercy series
When the Wizard Hazel is betrayed and forced to flee her house she finds debatable safety in the manor of Killian Drake, the most feared vampire in the region. Each book builds on each other has spoilers for the previous book so I recommend reading them in order. This series is complete but read the Court of Midnight and Deception series for more stories set in the same world. (I recommend reading this series first because Hazel and Killian show up in Leila’s series quite a bit!)
Court of Midnight and Deception series
Brand new series! Set in the same world as the Hall of Blood and Mercy series, these books focus on Leila (who you first met in that series) and her dealings with the crumbling fae Night Court. Each book builds on the previous so I recommend reading them in series order.
Snow Queen series
This is a stand alone finished series that is also a prequel to the Timeless Fairy Tale series. I highly recommend you read this series first, or at least read it before you get to #9 in the Timeless Fairy Tale Series (Frog Prince) as it will give you insider information! It takes place hundreds of years before so although Snow Queen series characters are mentioned they don’t actually appear in the Timeless Fairy Tale series. There is a map of the country of Verglas on the series page.
- Heart of Ice
- Sacrifice – This is a direct sequel to Heart of Ice
- Snowflakes (short story anthology – it has tons of spoilers so read this last!)
Timeless Fairy Tale series
This series of fairy tale adaptations are mostly stand alone for the first 8 books so many people read them out of order. Books 9 to 11 build on each other so I recommend reading those in order. Puss in Boots is actually a prequel story so it can be read first without spoiling things for Wild Swans. Note that this series is complete but the main plot continues in the Fairy Tale Enchantress series. There is a world map of the countries in the Timeless Fairy Tale series on the series page.
- Beauty and the Beast (many of these characters are in #9 Frog Prince)
- Wild Swans (some of the same characters as #6 Puss in Boots)
- Cinderella and the Colonel
- Rumplestiltskin (set in the Snow Queen’s country so they mention her a lot)
- Little Selkie (a Little Mermaid Retelling)
- Puss in Boots (Prequel – some of the same characters as #2 Wild Swans)
- Swan Lake
- Sleeping Beauty
- Frog Prince – Includes spoilers for all previous books
- Twelve Dancing Princesses
- Snow White
The Fairy Tale Enchantress series
This is the sequel to the Timeless Fairy Tale series and will give you more information about Enchantress Angelique as well as the final conclusion to the Timeless Fairy Tale series that many of you have been guessing at for years. Books 2, 3, and 4 contain a lot of spoilers for the Timeless Fairy Tales series, so keep that in mind when deciding which series to start with. This series will have six books.
- Apprentice of Magic
- Curse of Magic
- Reign of Magic
- Trial of Magic
- Blade of Magic – coming Summer 2024
- Book 6 – release date TBD
Elves of Lessa series
This series of stand alone fantasy romance books feature a different couple in each book but the events from each book affect the next book so I recommend reading them in order. I do have elves in some of my other series but they aren’t connected to the elves found in the Elves of Lessa series. There are 4 books planned for this series.
King Arthur and Her Knights series
What if King Arthur from legend was actually a time traveling female from the 21st century? These books are not stand alone so I really recommend reading them in order. This series is finished! There is also a complete series boxset so you can quickly catch up!
Magical Beings Rehabilitation Center series
Vampires, fairies, goblins, dragons and all other fantastic creatures are real…but they’re not what you expect. This finished series is a mix of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance with lots of satire mixed it. It is not set in the same world as the Hall of Blood and Mercy series, but if you liked the humor in that series this one is even funnier so you should give it a try! Every book has spoilers for the previous book (including the short story anthology) so I recommend reading them in this order:
- Vampires Drink Tomato Juice
- Goblins Wear Suits
- Lost Files of the M.B.R.C. (short story anthology – it has tons of spoilers so read this last!)
Robyn Hood series
What if Robin Hood from legend was really a female (Robyn)? If you liked King Arthur and Her Knights you will probably like this series, although there isn’t any time travel in this one. This two book series is finished and the books build on each other so read them in this order:
Books that are stand alone:
If you like epic fantasy or video games, you should check out my Second Age of Retha series. These books have less romance but feature my typical mix of humor, action, fantasy and a female lead who can’t believe the situation she is stuck in. Each book builds on the previous so it’s best to read them in order.
