Recommended Reading Order of the Jack Noble Novels

I get this question from time to time. For some reason, I’ve avoided creating a simple post that people can reference, and instead, answer it individually. Hopefully, this post causes a little less grief for those who want to start at book one and go from there.

There’s actually two series when it comes to Jack. The Jack Noble Novels, and Noble Intentions.

The plan for the Jack Noble Novels is for them to be all over the place. They are stand alone with a main plot. The primary (and usually only) point of view character is Jack Noble. You should be able to read these in any order, however some novels may contain hints at previous books.

Noble Intentions is an ongoing saga with multiple point of view characters and persisting story threads. Jack shares the stage with his various partners, and we get a glimpse inside the heads of some of the antagonists in the series. Characters will come and go. Someone who made a brief appearance in one of the first episodes might be a major player in the season three book.

Coming soon will be a series of short novels featuring Clarissa. Bear and Mandy will also get their own series of novella to short novel length books. I’ll do my best to place these within the chronological order below.

Now on to the order of the books. This is a chronological listing of the books in the order in which they take place, not when they were written.

The individual episodes of Noble Intentions are the same the ones in the Season compilation books. Stick with the compilations and you’ll save 50% or so. The plan is for at least 5 more Noble Intentions seasons, as well as several more Jack Noble Novels. I love this group of characters, and at this time, I can’t imagine running out of ideas for them.

      Thanks, Leah! Glad to hear you are finding them so enjoyable! I hear it is okay to give up cleaning, doing the dishes, sleeping, etc for a couple days to get them all read :)

    I just read Noble Beginnings.it’s been a while that I stayed up 3 hours past bedtime because I couldn’t put it down. Just downloaded episode 1. Can’t wait to start it.

    • L.T. Ryan says:

      That’s awesome, Camille! Glad to hear Jack kept you up :) I hope the rest of the books have the same effect. Both episode 1 and Season One are free at this time on Amazon. Make sure you grab the full Season One book.

    What a book move over Lee child’s, I couldn’t stop reading it. The action was relentless. It kept me entertained for hours. Well written, and well done.

    I went out for hip replacement surgery in April. That is when I started reading – and I mean reading. I read five books, then looked for something else to read. I had gotten an email notification about books that I might like, and when I got the one about Jack, I went to Amazon and took a look. From the first week in May through the first week in June, I finished all of the Jack Nobel books, and both season 1 and 2. I would stay up all night reading just to finish an episode. I love reading, and cannot wait for the next season of Jack to start. Will also be looking forward to the see what Bear/Mandy and Clarissa are going to be up to. Thanks for some good reading. I think I found myself another author to continue reading -

      I’m glad to hear you’ve been enjoying the stories! Nothing’s better than hearing that they kept you up late at night. There is lots more on the way. Best of luck with your recovery!

    I really enjoyed reading Noble Beginnings. I don’t expect that a whole lot of people believed that the ending for Gen Keller was a real scenario, but the scenes that you saw on tv in the Oval Office with Gen McCrystal and President Obama are Moore the exception than the rule in real life. It usually plays out more like the ending of this story. Generals generally die a political death, where the are politically neutered by those in power rather than publicly strung up like Saddam.
    Great story! I’m anxiously waiting to read book 2.

    • L.T. Ryan says:

      Glad you enjoyed the story. Thanks for the comments…well said. Hope you enjoy the next book in the series!

  9. I’m a voracious reader in my home, and always looking for books with action a/o historical romance – the book has to flow or I’m pulling my hair out (and I like my hair)! I’ve read over 100 books this year, in my spare time, and only a dozen or so have really brought a smile to my face throughout the read – I just finished Noble Intentions and my cheks hurt from all the grinning! I enjoyed not only Jack’s POV, but also gettting some of the story from Bear and Clarissa. It’s nice to know that you anticipate continued stories not only from Jack, but also from his friends. I don’t have much money, and with a 14 year old boy, stretching the pennies is sometimes a challenge – but for the enjoyment of a good book as MY only pleasure, I’m be sharing what I am able to with you – for the pleasure of reading more about these exciting characters! Please never give up on them and keep us readers clamoring for more!!

    Thanks for your writing ability! Karin.

    • Wow, thank you, Karen! I can’t tell how glad I am that you’ve discovered these books and have enjoyed your time with Jack and his crew. I hope you find the rest of the books to be as smile-inducing as the first. I have lots of plans for these characters, and some new ones too. I’m excited to get up every day and write about them. Best wishes!

  10. I really enjoyed your first 2 episodes but I felt that episode 3 was a little above my budget.

    • Lillie, I sent you an email. There is no reason to buy episodes 2-5, as they are available in the Season One compilation book, which is currently available for free.

  11. These books are amazing! My only frustration is that I have just finished Never Go Home and cannot find Noble Intentions season 4 on the kindle store anywhere?!!! Is it due to be released there soon? Also does it answer the questions left at the end of never go home? Like (spoiler alert) who is Marcia?!! Will start on the Clarissa Abbott book for now but would be great if you can let me know via email when season 4 is released? Also just realised I have not read Thin Line, which it says is #3, but has not appeared in the orders of books published at the back of the Noble Intentions series?! Please explain!!

    • L.T. Ryan says:

      Season Four is in the works. It should answer the broad questions. I hope to have the drafts complete in a couple weeks, then it’ll head to editing, which usually doesn’t take too long. Use the sign up form on the side of the site or on the newsletter page and you’ll be notified as soon as a new book is released.

      Thin Line – I write out of order sometimes. Part of the reason Season Four has taken so long is because of a character in the story who had too much backstory with Jack to fit into the book. So I decided to write about it and release prior to Season Four. It was supposed to be a short novel, but turned into a full-length book.
