Timeline/Book Order

I’ve been asked about the timelines/order of the books. As of today (1/30/21) these should be pretty close. Since all of these take place in the same “universe”, books that happen later may always have spoilers for books that already happened – even in another series :). Click on the dates to be taken to the page for that particular book.

I’m splitting it into two separate timelines – royalty and everything else with any crossover noted. 🙂

Royalty Books

Series Color Coding/Series Order (Click to go to the series page)
The Monarchies of Belles Montanges
Serenity Landing Second Chances
Crowns & Courtships
Crowns & Courtships Novellas
Beaches of Trumanville
Princes of New Sargasso
Tiaras & True Love
Crowns & Courtships

The Crowns & Courtships series (published beginning summer 2017) begins a kind of coexisting timeline with The Monarchies of Belles Montagnes & Serenity Landing Second Chances (published Nov. 2014-Apr. 2017). The overlap between books should be relatively minor, but given that they all involve royals in one way or another, there’s a possibility for “spoilers” for books that take place during the same time frame.

The Crowns & Courtships Novellas fall outside of the larger C&C timeline (and may or may not involve a royal), but generally introduce characters for the full length series.

The first time through, I recommend reading The Monarchies of Belles Montagnes and Serenity Landing Second Chances in their entirety before reading Crowns & Courtships.
