Romance Family Sagas

hidden awayLast weekend I was scarfing down the books in Maya Banks' KGI series as if they were bonbons and I paused for a moment to wonder about the source of their appeal.  I started reading the first book because I was in the mood for a military/adventure type of romance, but by the time I finished that one and drove to the nearest bookstore to buy the next two, I was caught up in the story of the family.  It made me think of how many series I've made my way through because I really liked the characters in a family, I wanted to find out what happened in all of their imaginary lives, and I just wanted to spend more time with them.

Let's see, through the years I remember loving Linda Howard's Mackenzie stories, Johanna Lindsey's Malory family historical series, Julia Quinn's very funny Bridgerton books, Mary Balogh's Bedwyn family, Larissa Ione's Demonica paranormals and Shannon McKenna's intense McCloud brothers series.  I'm sure there are many others I'm just not remembering right now.  Any family series favorites you'd like to share?
