With the upcoming release of Heir to the Alpha, I've had lots of questions about the series and related books! Here's a guide to help you figure out reading order (and extra credit reading) for the Tarker's Hollow serials and spin-off series!
To get the most enjoyment out of Heir to the Alpha, you'll want to begin by reading the complete Curse of the Alpha serial and then the complete Fate of the Alpha serial.
Once you're caught up with those two, you could go straight to Heir to the Alpha, and enjoy the continuation of the story of Tarker's Hollow, or...
You could read Tales from Tarker's Hollow!
The three standalone novellas that make up this collection give background on many of the characters in the serials.
The Talented Mr. MAcGregor is a steamy mystery prequel to the whole series.
The other two take place at the same time as the first episode of Heir to the Alpha!
A scene from The Clockwork Dragon is replicated during an overlapping portion of Heir to the Alpha, but from another character's perspective!
And one of the characters introduced in the novella Ghost of Shifters Past becomes important in Heir to the Alpha!
After reading these three novellas, you'll be REALLY ready to jump into Heir to the Alpha!
The 300 Moons series of steamy shifter standalone romances do not further the plot of the Curse/Fate/Heir serials. Rather, they tell the story of the grown-up shifter orphans who were raised at Harkness Farms! Enjoy these tales of love, surrounded by the mystery of Tarker's Hollow...
Now it's DEFINITELY time for Heir to the Alpha!
If you're like me, you enjoy seeing a timeline of how events occur. In the graphic below, you can see the books that are labeled 1, 2 & 3 are required reading - the unlabeled books are optional! In between you can see the order in which the stories occur during the course of the year and a half that goes by in Tarker's Hollow as our story unfolds...
I hope you enjoy your adventure! And remember, when it comes to Tarker's Hollow stories - as long as you keep reading them, I'll keep writing them!
It's the holiday season, so we both know you're putting others first - volunteering, planning gifts or special meals - doing your best to make the world a happier place!
My fellow authors and I wanted to make sure you have something fun for yourself! Welcome to Alphas for the Holidays - more than THIRTY standalone tales of paranormal romance. Enjoy one each day to prepare for the season! (Or gorge yourself on as many as you can read in a day! It's up to you!)
