Can they be read as stand alone novels?  I seem to have a few in the series. . . wondering if I need to fill it in before I start.

 

Thanks ladies!

They work fine as standalones as long as you realize the characters from previous/subsequent books will make regular appearances in most of the books and there are so many of them it can be tough to keep track of them all.  Just focus on the primary characters and ignore the secondary ones and you'll be fine.

Thanks.  It's always good to know how much of a role the previous charcters play in a series. smiley

I've read these out of order as well.  They're like the Cynster books by Stephanie Laurens.  In the same universe with overlapping characters but no ongoing plot lines.  The only thing that might happen is if you read a later one you might get a spoiler about how many and what kind of kids a previous couple ends up having.

They can be read as stand alones, but it is definitely worth it to read them all!  They are one of my favorite series of books and my best friend and I have been reading them since the first one came out sooo many years ago!!  Regina and Nick is the first story, but my favorite is Roslyn and Anthony.  My best friend and my mom like George :) and James the best.  So, they can be read alone, but it is worth it to read them all in order!!  Which ones do you have?
