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.

If you want to read each book in chronological order, here it is:

  • The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife (Marriage by Scandal: Book 1)
  • Breaking the Rules (Marriage by Design: Book 1)
  • Nobody’s Fool (Marriage by Design: Book 2)
  • A Deceptive Wager (Marriage by Design: Book 3)
  • Her Counterfeit Husband – not part of a series – (this one overlaps with A Most Unsuitable Earl in the timeline)
  • A Most Unsuitable Earl (Marriage by Scandal: Book 2)
  • His Reluctant Lady (Marriage by Scandal: Book 3)
  • The Earl’s Scandalous Wife (Marriage by Scandal: Book 4)
  • The Earl’s Secret Bargain (Marriage by Deceit: Book 1)
  • Love Lessons With The Duke (Marriage by Deceit: Book 2)
  • Ruined By The Earl (Marriage by Deceit: Book 3)
  • The Earl’s Stolen Bride (Marriage by Deceit: Book 4)
  • His Wicked Lady (Marriage by Arrangement: Book 1)
  • Her Devilish Marquess (Marriage by Arrangement: Book 2)
  • The Earl’s Wallflower Bride (Marriage by Arrangement: Book 3)
  • The Viscount’s Runaway Bride (Marriage by Bargain: Book 1)
  • The Rake’s Vow (Marriage by Bargain: Book 2)
  • Taming The Viscountess (Marriage by Bargain: Book 3)

  • Married In Haste (Marriage by Fate: Book 2)
  • Make Believe Bride (Marriage by Fate: Book 3)
  • The Perfect Duke (Marriage by Fate: Book 4)
  • Kidnapping the Viscount (Marriage by Fate: Book 5)
  • The Marriage Contract (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 1)
  • One Enchanted Evening (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 2)
  • The Wedding Pact (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 3)
  • Fairest of Them All (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 4)
  • The Duke’s Secluded Bride (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 5)

  • Heiress of Misfortune (Marriage by Necessity: Book 2)
  • The Cursed Earl (Marriage by Necessity: Book 3)

(more to come for Regencies)


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

Forced Into Marriage (Pioneer Series: Book 4) – brief appearance by Michelle and Joe Otto at the end

Her Heart’s Desire (Nebraska Series: Book 1) – Sally Larson’s book

To Have And To Hold (Nebraska Series: Book 7) – Dave Larson’s second book

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

An Inconvenient Marriage (Virginia Series: Book 3) – Jake Mitchell has a brief encounter with Todd Brothers (hero in Falling In Love With Her Husband) and Todd’s father.

Kent Ashton’s Backstory (standalone novella) – has Ann and Todd from Falling In Love With Her Husband (shows his point of view on the events in that story)

Meant To Be (time travel from present to the past) – has Penelope and Cole from “A Chance In Time” and Woape from Restoring Hope in it.

Restoring Hope (Native American Romance Series: Book 1) – has Penelope and Cole from “A Chance In Time”

A Chance In Time (Native American Series: Book 2) – has Ted from Meant To Be and Woape from Restoring Hope in it

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

  • “The Bride’s Choice” in A Groom’s Promise (Historical Romance Anthology: Book 2) – as with Bride by Arrangement, Janet Syas Nitsick wrote the other story in this anthology
  • The Mail Order Bride’s Deception (standalone novel)
