Dee, see my Nov 15th posting. It tells you the order of the volumes in which way to read them. If you can't see the post, scroll down and select the next set of past posts and maybe it will be in that. If not, select the next set of posts and it will be in there. If you want to complete the series, do what I did-go to a used book store. They usually have all the older books. I just bought all of R.Roger's books about Steve and Ginny in the Savage series from a used book store. Also, Barnes and Nobel sell re published books too but at a higher price.

I seem to be getting lost here. Could someone please answer my question that I posted?

dona, don't get me wrong i love janet still but your facts are wrong. She plagarized from Nora not once but several times. And there was some other writer she did it to as well. Stealing is stealing no matter what the excuse is. I was very shocked and hurt when i read about it.

Get a grip, Jane...She didn't steal from the National Treasury!! I don't think she "stole" at all. If you had read the part that was "plagarized", it sounded like almost every romance novel every written. She had just read Ms. Roberts book, and the phrasing just came to her mind...she didn't intentionally "copy"....or rather STEAL...it!! In case you missed it...she apologized publicly on national television, as well as paying a settlement. Enough is enough! If you have a problem with her books, don't read them. Believe me...there are enough of us who can't wait for the next one to come out!!

Dona - So you believe that a person who has had difficulty in their life has a right to steal from other people? Just because things have been tough it makes it ok to take something from another, something that that person worked hard to produce and then because life is not as easy as it could be put their name on that product and tell the world that they wrote it. Ok, my life has been pretty rocky but I haven't stolen anything from anyone and don't intend to. That is a lousy excuse for what she did and you know it. Stealing is wrong no matter what spin you want to put on it.

What did Janet do? I've never heard or read about her lying about a book. Is this something that is widely known?

Ok, I must say i do understand jane's point. Janet was the first author I loved, and I came to love Nora just as much years later. I was very hurt and angry when I found out what she had done. I'm sorry, there is no excuse for what she did. I still love her though, even though it's hard for me to pick up a book of hers without wondering did she actually write this

Perhaps, Jane...if you had gone through in your life what Janet was going through, you might be a little more understanding. The quality of her work speaks for itself...and has for years!!

Does anyone feel that Laura Calder was a man in a woman's body? Please advise. I was a bit concerned that she seemed emotionally distant...always following her head not her heart until Sebastian's worldy charm finally overwhelmed her.
