I’m glad you asked!
Damien and Nikki’s story started with the original trilogy. The reading order is: Release Me, Claim Me, Complete Me. After Complete Me, you can also jump to the fourth full-length N&D novel, Anchor Me. You can find these books here.
Because both fans and I enjoyed spending time with the characters, I created “Stark Ever After” which follows Nikki and Damien after their original trilogy concluded with Complete Me. The Stark Ever After novellas are digital-first stories, shorter than a novel, and intended to give readers a peek into the continuing lives of Nikki and Damien. The Stark Ever After novellas are here.
You can read the four full-length books without reading the novellas. But if you want the full, chronological experience, then follow this order:
The reading order is:
- Release Me – novel
- Claim Me – novel
- Complete Me – novel
- Take Me – novella (also introduces Evan Black from Wanted, book one of the Most Wanted trilogy. That series consists of three stand-alone novels about three hot, sexy friends in Chicago. Damien and Nikki make a cameo appearance in Ignited, book 3 in the Most Wanted series.)
- Have Me – novella
- Play My Game – novella (this novella introduces Jackson Steele, who is the hero of the Stark International trilogy)
- Side Note!!! There is a storyline involving Damien that runs through the Jackson Steele trilogy. So if you want to take a detour, now’s the time to read the Jackson/Sylvia stories (Say My Name, On My Knees, Under My Skin – the original trilogy) & Steal My Heart and Take My Dare, a short story and novella that follow! (Just click the link! You don’t have to, but it’s fun to follow that path!)
- Seduce Me – novella (This novella was originally on sale for a limited time as part of the Sweet Seduction box-set, the proceeds of which went to charity. That box-set is no longer available, but the story is available for purchase individually.) (Though published after Say My Name (Stark International #1), chronologically, Seduce Me comes before the events in that novel. It can truly be read as a stand alone, as I was writing it intentionally for an audience that may not have ever met Nikki and Damien before!
- UnWrap Me- novella
- Deepest Kiss – novella
- Dallas Sykes plays a significant role in this novella. He’s first introduced in the Jackson/Sylvia trilogy, and his full story is set out in the SIN Trilogy, Dirtiest Secret, Hottest Mess, & Sweetest Taboo. If you want to follow that path, this is where to take that detour!
- Take My Dare – novella (Technically, this is a Sylvia and Jackson novella, but Nikki and Damien have a significant role.
- Entice Me- novella
- Anchor Me – novel – this is a full-length novel and continues the saga of Nikki & Damien.
- Hold Me – novella
- Please Me – novella (coming in 2018)
- Stay tuned for another exciting announcement!
Note: Nikki & Damien also make cameo appearances in the Wicked Nights series. Those books are each true stand alone novels and can be read even without having ever read the Stark books. Chronologically, they follow Hold Me.
