Sometimes publishers bring old favorites out again with new covers, and sometimes even updated titles. How can you make sure of which titles you haven’t read?
These books have all been published only once with the cover and title you see below. This means that if you don't recognize the cover, you can be assured that you haven't read the story! (Concerned about reissues and anthologies? Check below.)
These books feature several of Maya's books, all of which have also been released individually. Be careful to check that you haven't read a book before you buy it!
These stories have all been released more than once, with multiple covers, but the stories are all the same. Be careful to check that you haven't read a book before you buy it!
Harlequin regularly repackages the books Maya published with them with different covers and titles, but the stories haven't changed. Be careful to check that you haven't read a book before you buy it!

The timing of Maya's ebook releases varies by publisher. Read on...
Maya’s books published by Silhouette, Berkley (Penguin Group), and Random House, which include her erotic contemporaries for HEAT, the KGI series, Silhouette Desires and Scottish Historicals, are released in both print and ebook format on the same release day.
Maya released her final (for the foreseeable future) ebook with Samhain Publishing—Colters' Daughter—in February 2011. Samhain books typically come out in ebook format one year ahead of print format, so February 2012 in the case of Colters' Daughter. The precise print date will be posted on the site's Coming Soon page as soon as Maya knows, so stay tuned.
For more information about ebook release dates, please check individual book pages and Coming Soon. And of course, Maya's newsletter announces all releases and rereleases. Make sure you are signed up!
Some of Maya’s books can be grouped into a distinct series with strong overlaying themes. Other books often see continuing characters, and could be considered connected, though perhaps not quite a series. While all of Maya’s books stand on their own, and can be read in any order, please use the following as a guide if revisiting themes and characters makes you happy.
Three sizzling novels start off Maya's sexy new romantic suspense series.
The Slow Burn Series in order:
A bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they’re willing to pay for pleasure.
The Enforcers Series in order:
In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there’s only one thing left to do: cross them.
The Surrender Trilogy in order:
Gabe, Jace, and Ash: three of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the country. They're accustomed to getting anything they want. Anything at all.
The Breathless Trilogy in order:
The Kelly/KGI Series centers around a military family. There are six Kelly brothers, all of whom served in different branches of the military. When the idea for this series came to me, the first question that always pops into my mind is where? For me this answer was immediate. I lived in Paris, Tennessee for several years and spent many a day on Kentucky Lake and in the Dover area. For me, it was the perfect place to base the stories.
The Kellys are a lot of fun to write. They’re loyal, hard working, fiercely competitive and family is the most important thing in their lives. Marlene Kelly is the matriarch of the large family and has a penchant for collecting “strays” as her sons tease her endlessly over. Over the years she’s added “adopted” family members to the fold and she incessantly mothers them all. Her most recent addition to the Kelly clan has her sons up in arms, but Marlene didn’t raise six rambunctious sons by being a wimp!
The first book in the series, The Darkest Hour, finds the Kelly family in turmoil after the death of Ethan Kelly’s wife a year before. Rachel was much beloved by all the Kellys and Ethan hides a dark secret about the state of his marriage before her fateful mercy mission to South America—the one she never came back from. Now on the one year anniversary of her death, he receives startling information. She’s alive.

Maya will be self publishing the Tangled Hearts trilogy, and as such, she will be setting a lower price point for the digital version. At present she doesn't have pricing information on the PRINT edition, but it WILL be available via print on demand but it will only be available to order online and will not be stocked in physical book stores as her other books are.
The Tangled Hearts trilogy will be published in ADDITION to all of Maya's regularly scheduled books and won't interfere with the publication schedule of her existing books. Because she will be writing these and fitting them into an already crowded schedule, she won't announce the publication dates for Always Mine (book 2) or Forever Ours (book 3) until she is certain that the date won't change.
It is her hope for there not to be long periods of time between the release of the first book and subsequent books, and she'll do her very best to get them into your hands as soon as humanly possible.
Because Maya is self publishing this trilogy, she will try to make it possible for ANYONE to be able to purchase and read the books which means there will be no geographical restrictions and they will be available worldwide to readers who are able to purchase digital books online as well as ordering the print edition online as well.
As always, the minute Maya has information on release dates, the information will be posted on this website, Facebook and Twitter as well as be announced in her newsletter to subscribers.
