Yes and no. (Don’t you just love that answer??) I meant for SOMETHING ABOUT EMMALINE to stand on its own, however, I just couldn’t help myself and let Temple, Elton and Diana into the story. Then before you know it, I was uncovering Elton’s past and they were right there in the middle of the story. On the Danver’s timeline, SAE takes place just after the opening of ONE NIGHT OF PASSION and before STEALING THE BRIDE. With THIS RAKE OF MINE, you’ll see old Danvers characters in the story, and it’s a Danvers’ adventure in spirit, just not with a Danvers hero.
