Crossovers In My Romances

This page is a work in progress and will be updated as I write more books.

On this page, I will explain where characters who play a part in one series show up in another.

I color coordinated the books in each series in the historical western division to help identify each series better, but if this is distracting, let me know, and I’ll change it.

Also, if I missed anything, feel free to let me know in the comments.

My Regencies

This is an easy one.  All of my Regencies take place in the same “world”.  This means that you’ll find characters from one book pop up in another one as that character fits into the story.

Quick note: Ethan (Lord Edon) and Mr. Christopher Robinson are my two favorite Regency characters, so they show up in a lot of books as secondary characters. To save on space, just remember that Ethan is the hero in A Most Unsuitable Earl and Christopher is the hero in His Reluctant Lady.

My Historical Westerns

This is where it gets tricky.  From time to time, a secondary character in one series will be the main character in another one.   I will give these books in chronological order.  (Some timelines will overlap, so I’ll do my best.)

Here are the books (with important characters listed) that crossover:

Wagon Trail Bride (Pioneer Series: Book 1) – Richard Larson is the hero in this story.  We also meet Pa and Ma Larson, Sally, Tom, Jenny, Dave, and Joel when they were younger.

The Marriage Agreement (Pioneer Series: Book 2) – Richard and Amanda Larson show up in this book.

Groom For Hire (Pioneer Series: Book 3) – brief appearance of Amanda and Richard Larson

Forever Yours (Nebraska Series: Book 9) – Dave’s third book; features Ma & Pa Larson, along with Richard, Sally, Tom, Jenny, and Joel and their spouses and children. (Think of it as an unofficial epilogue to the Nebraska Series for this particular group of Larsons.)

Loving Eliza (South Dakota Series: Book 1) – Eliza originally showed up in His Redeeming Bride and is the heroine in this book

The Bride Price (Misled Mail Order Brides: Book 1) – Sep (Joel Laron’s brother-in-law in Shotgun Groom) is the hero of this book; features Joel and April Larson with brief appearance by Owen and Jenny Russell

Mitch’s Win (Montana Series: Book 1) -overlaps with Isaac’s Decision in the timeline; has Boaz from Boaz’s Wager, and Boaz marries Eva Connelly from Isaac’s Decision

Boaz’s Wager (Montana Series: Book 2) – features Eva Connelly from Isaac’s Decision and Rachel Larson from To Have And To Hold

Bride Of Second Chances (South Dakota Series: Book 3) – Jacob Larson (son of Dave and Mary Larson makes a brief appearance in this book); also has Eliza from Loving Eliza and Brian and Lucy from Bid For A Bride

Patty’s Gamble (Montana Series: Book 3) – has Eva Connelly after she married Boaz

His Convenient Wife (standalone at the moment, with same disclaimer as having potential to be in a series that Catching Kent has) – has Rose Larson (aka Rose Ashton) and Kent Ashton; Mary and Dave Larson are the heroine’s parents; also Neil and Sarah Craftsman (hero’s parents) are featured
