A large family in a large household in a long, linked series means many characters passing through each book. This character list should help you place everyone as you read. Names in bold type are characters with their own listings.
The character list has been updated for this current book, so if you have not read The Rogues of Ravensmuir, The Jewels of Kinfairlie and The True Love Brides Series so far, there may be spoilers. Babies born and marriages made will be added with each new book in the series.
