This is purely subjective on my part, but after long ponderings on the matter, this is the best reading order I can come up with for my books if you are a purist and want your reading to fall in a linear fashion.  The easiest way to divide my books is historical romance vs. contemporary romance.  My historicals are each about one couple and have HEAs at the end.  The historical books can also be read at any time because they are independent romances that took place in the past.  My contemporaries are series with more than one book about the same couple and have to be read in order by design.

Also important to note is that I like to write my books so that the reader will find Easter Eggs scattered here and there that link past to present, either in ancestry, or location, or in objects such as the paintings that appear in most of my stories.  Examples: The art gallery where Brynne works in Naked is named after Lord Rothvale from The Muse.  The portrait Gabrielle and Brynne discuss in Eyes Wide Open is of Jeremy and Georgina and their family from The Undoing of a Libertine 175 years earlier.   The estate in Northern Ireland, Donadea, where Ivan and Gaby meet in Priceless, is where Graham has just left before returning to England in The Muse.  There are lots of these kinds of connections throughout all of my stories and you’ll just have to read the books to find them.  Happy Reading!
