Have You Read Any Series Continuities?

Continuity (noun): the unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time.

When this word is applied to a new book series, it can really change things. It means that a series you're excited about will be taken on by not one single author, but many! Continuities aren't a new concept, but we're starting to see them more and more in romance. 

Have you read any series that have more than one author attached? What did you think? What have been your favorite examples? Has it lead you to discover any new authors? 

Tell me about it in the comments!

The only one I've read, actually, is the Kings of Bourbon Street? (I think that's what it's called). It had Jackie Ashenden, and Maisey Yates among others and I really enjoyed it!

I've read some entries in a couple such series. One is a newish series from Riptide; it has both contemporary and historical romances set in Porthkennack. The other is also from Riptide; there are a boatload of novels set in a community called Bluewater Bay.

I enjoy continuities and have a number of them, including 'Somewhere, TX', 'ASSIGNMENT: Caribbean Nights' and 'Elite Warriors'. Ironically, I also have 'Camp Firefly Falls', and the book shown on this page, 'Falling for the Best Man' is the one that infuriates me. There were 7 books in the first season and 6 are scheduled for the current season. This is the ONE book that is only available from Amazon. I know some authors are exclusive to Amazon, but they shouldn't be included in a series that is available on other platforms.

I'm going to age myself but long ago Loveswept did this. Kay Hooper, Iris Johansen, Deborah Smith.

Of course Harlequin has done it quite a bit too.

I have to say I don't really read books like this anymore. . . I chose books probably more by authors than continuing plot devices.

Thinking about this some more, I realize that I was reading such a linked series (albeit not romance per se) in the seventies, eighties, and onwards -- I'm thinking of Star Trek novels. My favorite authors included Diane Duane, Barbara Hambly, and Janet Kagan.

I have read a few of these, and it is always nice to find a new author that I hadn't been familiar with, but usually I just like to devour everything by authors that I really like :)
