So I'm looking for a new series to start.  Can anyone tell me the reading order for this series and if it is important to be read in order? Also I would love to here your thoughts on these books.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks Sonja it helps.  I just finished up the "Riley Jensen" series by Keri Arthur & only have 1 book left to read in the "Carpaithan" series frown  As always when finishing up a series I love I have a hard time leaving it and I have no idea what to start next.

Riley Jensen was good, but I hated all the sex that she was having just for "the job".  But it had a good ending.

The carpathian series has been a keeper on my shelf for years.  One of these days I'll read Dark Slayer (which I've had for a long time, but since it's a keeper I'm in no hurry to read it yet)  Dark Peril is on my wishlist.

I went right from the Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, right in to The Women of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong.  Armstrong is darker but still a good series (I'm only on book 2).  I'm going through withdrawals with the Mercy series because her next book doesn't come out til next year.

But I highly recommend the Prime series.  They were pretty hot and steamy, and it's not always the girl falling quickly in love either, but it's funny when the choice is taken out of their hands just like the Carpathians.

They should be.  Characters will pop up in multiple books, and you might be reading about someone that's already found their partner, but you haven't read the story yet.  But I'm anal about reading them in order.  My first book in the Carpathian series was the one for Darius and Tempest, and that was book 6.  After that I had to track down the first 5. wink

Also I would love to here your thoughts on these books.

i know i hated the first one, wasn't impressed with the next one or two, but enjoyed the later ones.  i did read them all kinds of out of order.

if you want to give it a try, Dark Stranger is only a little related to the other books.  (the ladies from prior books are reading a book for a book club, and this futuristic Primes novel is what they read.)

in order is probably good, but i don't know if it's totally required.  some of the characters pop up later, or are related to later characters - like Jo from #2 is the sister of Phillipa from #5 so we see that couple again.  i remember a couple of them were tied together more closely than the others, but i've forgotten which ones - 4 and either 5 or 6, i think...

Dark Strangers is on my wishlist to pick up sometime.  I have a spreadsheet of all the books I have, and have read just to keep me organized.  It lists whose book is whose story.
