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)
- 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 trilogy, Say My Name, On My Knees, Under My Skin. (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.
- 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
