Hi Laura, Sorry for noise but is it necessary to read them as You listed or each book is story of itself? One title cuaght my attention because of You but it is in the end of the list.
Usually, if it is a series, it really helps to read them in order. However, in the case of the Huxtable series, you can read the last two books together without all that went before since they only use a character from the previous books and the environment is very different.
Nevertheless, in your case, I would start with Mary Balogh as her books seem more likely to help you. In fact, in your case, I would start with the Web series which is only three books.
