This page lists each of the Dreams of Control series, with their individual books in order of publication and notes on reading order/sequence.
Hell to Pay Edit
The main storyline of the Hell to Pay series takes place entirely within the first book, Hell to Pay. The other two Hell to Pay books take place during the events of Hell to Pay. The main storyline lasts exactly one calendar year: Hell to Pay: Halloween Dreams takes place on Halloween of that year, and Hell to Pay: Carnival of Lust takes place during Mardi Gras/Carnival Season.

Little Black Box Edit
The Little Black Box stories can be read in any order, although later books occasionally refer to earlier ones.
