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 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.

Kent Ashton’s Backstory (standalone novella) – Kent is the main character. This isn’t a romance. It was written by request from someone who wanted to know why he acted the way he did in Falling In Love With Her Husband. This led to me wanting to write his romance, which is Catching Kent.

Meant To Be (time travel from present to the past) – The main characters are Ted and Megan. This is a standalone book, but I liked the secondary characters, Penelope and Cole so much that I wrote A Chance In Time. While writing A Chance In Time, I introduced Woape. I wanted to know how she got pregnant with a white man’s child, so I wrote Restoring Hope, and that led to the Native American Romance Series.

Catching Kent – This is a standalone book. The main characters are Rose Larson and Kent. Rose is one of Dave and Mary Larson’s daughters. Kent originally appeared in Falling In Love With Her Husband and Kent Ashton’s Backstory. Prominent secondary characters are Harriett Larson and Stan Craftsman (from His Convenient Wife) and Mary and Dave Larson (from Eye of the Beholder/To Have and To Hold/Forever Yours).

His Convenient Wife Harriett Larson and Stan Craftsman are the main characters. Harriett is Rose’s twin sister and the daughter of Dave and Mary Larson. Stan is the son of Neil and Sarah Craftsman. Prominent secondary characters are Rose and Kent (from Catching Kent); Mary and Dave Larson (from Eye of the Beholder/To Have and To Hold/Forever Yours) and Neil and Sarah (from His Redeeming Bride).
