Ok so I just started Behind Closed Doors. I have Edge of Midnight and Standing in the Shadows.  I just won Out of Control on Ebay and ordered Return to Me from here.  I noticed a couple (like Return to Me) aren't McCloed bros books. but then Behind Closed Doors says it's a McCleod book but it's about their friend.  So do they have to be read in order or are Return to Me and Hot Night seperate books?  Her website just lists the books in publication order not in series order.  I can't tell if they are connected to the McCloed books or not.

Mary, Return to Me and Hot Night are not connected books  and are not part of the McCloud brothers series. The order of the McCloud books is: Behind Closed Doors, Standing in the Shadows, Out of Control & Edge of Midnight. I would reccomend reading them in order. Yes, BCD is about their friend but the McCloud brothers are involved in the story and storylines from BCD carry over into Standing in the Shadows.

Shannon McKenna also has a new book coming out at the end of Jan. 08, Extreme Danger. I believe it is a stand alone book.

Ok thanks.  I new the order of the McCloud books. I just didn't know if the other ones were connected and needed to be read in between the McCloud books or if they were independant stories.  I'm reading the 1st McCloud book now.

I think Extreme Danger is about the Mcloud's friend Nick...also if you want to check out series and/or order of books you can go to www.fantasticfiction.com  and they list the author's books by series in order

Ok thanks. I checked her website and all her books were just listed in release order but there were other non-series books in between.

Cant wait for the next one. I love Shannon's stories. Meltdown  in Bad Boys, Next Exit is a good one. She was going to make that into a series.

Well I really enjoyed Behind Closed Doors.  I'll probably work my way through all of her books. I put a couple on WL and a couple I'll probably just order from Amazon or somewhere.
