What is the reading order for the books with Nikki Fairchild and Damien Stark?

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 primary story 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. 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)
  • 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.
  • 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 do it.
  • 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
  • Hold Me – novella
