Sectors SF Romance Novels Reading Order

For the most part these are standalone stories occurring in my futuristic, galaxy-spanning world of the Sectors. When  there are sequels, the spoilers in succeeding books for the first book are as mild as I can make them. Where there is any connection besides the Sectors setting, I’ve grouped the books and put them in my suggested reading order. The stories all occur in the same general time frame, although I’d say the events of  WRECK are the earliest.

Wreck of the Nebula Dream – took place prior to the Star Cruise books, no direct link as far as characters but sister ships

Star Survivor – direct sequel to Wreck, set a few years later.

Star Cruise: Marooned

Star Cruise: Outbreak – next book after Marooned

Star Cruise A Novella: Stowaway plus Rescue and Golden Token short stories – novella originally released in the Pets In Space anthology, now only available in this volume. Two short stories also set in the Sectors, limited release, previously in anthologies, now only available here. Also includes 3rd short story Star Cruise: Thanksgiving, which was originally published on my blog.

Star Cruise: Songbird – originally appeared in the Pets In Space 2 anthology, now available separately. Occurs on the Nebula Zephyr and some of the previous characters appear.

Star Cruise: Mystery Dancer – Set on the Nebula Zephyr so a few of the crew appear in supporting roles. Originally in the Pets In Space 3 anthology but now available separately.

Danger in the Stars – novel telling the story of the sister of Stowaway’s heroine. This book is completely standalone but it probably helps to read Stowaway first.

Two Against the Stars – novel telling the story of a third kidnapped alien empathic woman fighting the Amarotu Combine crime syndicate in the Sectors – a second spinoff from Stowaway but standalone.

The Fated Stars – novel telling the story of a fourth kidnapped alien empath priest and the kickass female mercenary from the Sectors who comes to his aid. This is a standalone but refers to events in the previous three empath stories in passing, in a non-spoilery way.


Escape From Zulaire – completely standalone but occurs in the Sectors


Mission to Mahjundar

Hostage To The Stars – direct sequel to Mission to Mahjundar


Lady of the Star Wind begins in the Sectors and moves to a less high tech setting

Trapped on Talonque – completely standalone


Sectors New Allies Series – Badari Warriors

AYDARR (A Badari Warriors Scifi Romance Novel) – book one in the award winning series. This is connected to the Sectors, although the action happens outside the borders. As far as the timeline, to me this series is occurring at roughly the same time as the alien empath stories, like The Fated Stars, but there’s no direct connection to any of the characters from the Sectors novels.


TIMTUR: THE TEACHER’S ALIEN HEALER – released under the In The Stars Romance label; the events occur between MATEER and JADRIAN








DAEGAN – coming in late November/early December 2019

Award winning Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Series!
