Lindsay Buroker | list of book series in chronological order

I find that I am often searching for a list of an author's published books.  It is usually because I am trying to find their book series in some sort of reading and/or chronological order.  Sometimes they are super easy to find... and sometimes not.  I found myself binging on Lindsay Buroker books this past weekend.  While trying to figure out what book to read I discovered that finding the book series order for Lindsay Buroker's books wasn't easy... at all!  And so I have made my own list.  Hopefully it will help you as well.

As best as possible I have listed the series in reading order (chronological) not published order.  I have put the publication date beside each book in case you need/want to know.

Any links that you find will take you to my review of the book.
