While none of the novels in the series/set is dependent on the other, you will definitely like them all. I started with Delilah because the cover drew me in at the book store. However, none of the books has been disappointing. Each one takes an analytical and historical look at these biblical women, then gives them life. None of the stories go against scripture, or are far fetched. While reading them you get a since of history, accuracy & relevance to each woman's life. If you have ever wondered what drove Delilah to betray Samson, how Bathsheba felt about David's assault or what it took to be a Queen worthy of pardoning a people, then Angela Hunt 's Dangerous Beauty Novels are for you!
