Fern Michaels Series

Captives: A lusty tale that only Fern Michaels could tell as passion and adventure collide on the high seas. One of Michaels’ first series and arguably the one that put her on the map.

Texas: The captivating story of four generations of Colemans. The driven grandparents, the naive young lovers Billie and Moss, their children and their children’s children make for a fascinating tale of love, life, power and money.

Sins: At the end of World War I, two American friends find themselves in the hospital thanks to injuries from fighting in the trenches. They are then swept off to a French chateau by the lovely Marchioness Michelene Fonsard. The friends find love and happiness in their new life until Bebe Rosen shows up.

Vegas: A spin-off of the Texas series as Sallie Coleman leaves Texas for Las Vegas with dreams of making it rich. When the dreams come true and children follow, things start to get interesting.

Kentucky: The next generation of Colemans (Texas series) and Thorntons (Vegas series) star in this series set in the thrilling world of horse racing with more strong, female characters that are working towards their dreams.

Sisterhood: Seven women drawn together by tragedy form an unbreakable bond that allows them to actually do something about life’s unfairness. Rich, unhappy women taking the law into their own hands? Yes, please.

Men of the Sisterhood: The men behind the Sisterhood get their own series and their own revenge in this thrilling series. These men have supported the Sisterhood over the years, but now it’s their turn.

Cisco: The Cisco series focuses on the holidays and the Cisco triplets that want to make it all perfect. Heartwarming tales about family at the holidays.

The Godmothers: The wealthy Toots Loudenberry leads her two closest friends Mavis and Sophie on wild adventures. Comparisons to the Golden Girls are welcome and by design in this quirky series.

Best Fern Michaels Books

Weekend Warriors (2003): Unlike the traditional romance books of Fern Michaels, the Weekend Warriors takes a radical departure to a life that is motivated and controlled by anger and revenge. The book tells a story of a group of women who had injustices done on them, and they decided to fight for justice rather than being passive.

The seven women contemplate their predicament and form a loose alliance to seek justice. The book is far from romance. The women do not see material things as their motivation. At the same time, they do not mind that they have limited resources. Rather, they try their best with what they have and also seek assistance when in need.

Among a number of cases that they pursue, two stand out. Mary Rutledge, a wealthy person, loses her lovely daughter in a hit and run incident with the driver claiming diplomatic immunity. In fact, it is Mary who founds the group- a form of a vigilante group that shies away from the American justice system in favor of taking things on their own hands for a quicker and a more sure justice.

Kathryn is a truck driver who was traveling with her husband in the truck. She was raped by three motorcyclists as her helpless husband watched. The group decides to circumnavigate the mainstream justice system and seek revenge for Kathryn and her husband who went through emotional strength due to the incidence.

Betrayal (2011): The book Betrayal has a thematic combination of love and revenge. It is a romantic thriller but an old-fashioned one. Kate Rocket and Alex have a simple life and a stable marriage. Alex raises golden retrievers whereas Kate does pottery and offers cooking classes. They do not have children.

However, Alex’s best friend, Don Winter has a marriage that is plainly tolerant and the couple struggles to maintain their rather expensive lifestyle.Things take a sharp turn when Sarah Winter accuses Alex of sexual assault. Kate is left emotionally drained when Alex is eventually convicted and is set to serve a prison term. She also watches the good relationship that they had with the Winters disintegrate into thin air.
During her grief, Kate starts developing a strong anger. She plans a mission to seek revenge and destroy the family of Don Winter.

Texas Rich: Texas Rich is an outstanding novel whose main plot explores the Coleman family- an extraordinary heroine who started a powerful and unique American dynasty. Billie Ames stand out in the generations of the family. Starting from the memories of war, she has always been a strong woman. In fact, she succeeds in holding the family in unity despite the fact that she is falling apart. Texas Rich is a story of heartbreak, losses, love, and betrayal.

When Does The Next Fern Michaels book come out?

4 thoughts on “Fern Michaels”

  1. I also am in my 80’s and have been with Fern since she started in 1975. At onetime I had all her books but had to downsize. I have read most all her books and can’t wait for her next one out.If you like the Sisterhood series you will like all her other series.
    The only problem I have today is she used to put her book list up in the order of the year that they where written. Now I noticed the last couple of her lists are separated and the date and year are not there. It was so easy to print them out . Unless I am in the wrong place finding the Books in order list
    Love your books , can’t wait for the next new one. And for all the wonderful work that you do for so many people. And for your love of animals. Thank you.

  2. I have a good sized collection of Fern Michael’s books, since I recently celebrated my 84th birthday I have been researching for any and all of her books that I do not currently have. Wish me luck!!

  3. I adore the Sisterhood series but had no idea about the other numerous series from this author. The author tells riveting tales and knows how to keep the reader interested. You won’t be able to put any books down from the Sisterhood series. Does anyone know if the other series hold up?

    Kudos to Fern Michaels for an impressive body of work!
