I've just recently begun reading the series and would really like to continue reading them in order. Just finished Gently Continental and cannot seem to locate Gently Coloured anywhere. Can anyone help me locate either an ebook or paper copy of this? Might it be published as an ebook under a separate title?

Gently Coloured is also known as Gently Sinking. I was able to find Gently Sinking as an eBook at both Amazon and Kobo in the US.

The Fantastic Fiction page shows the order of the series. The first 30 books are currently available, and a number of titles have been changed. Eg:

The Honfleur Decision -> Gently Under Fire
Gabrielle's Way -> Gently Heartbroken
Fields of Heather -> Gently in the Past
Amorous Leander -> Gently with Passion

The aim seems to be to rename them all to the "Gently <something>" format.

I don't see, for example

Fields of Heather (1981) [Gently in the Past]

In fact that site thinks Fields of Heather is also called Death on the Heath ?

Ah so Gently in the Past and Gently with Passion appear on the US Amazon site but without any actual download. e.g.

https://www.amazon.com/Gently-Past-A.../dp/B01EFL9C8U

Gently with Passion appears on the UK Amazon site for download but I'm in Australia so it tells me I have to go to the US site.

I actually got them from the books themselves, which say "Originally published as..." on the page where all the legal stuff is.

in the box on the LHS of the page where I would usually see 1-click. Australia has protection laws with respect to publishing imports. Maybe that is the problem for some reason.

It may be the case that the publisher doesn't have the rights to sell the ebook to Australia. It's very common for books to have different publishers in different markets.

Yes I expect that is it. In the past I've had books with a release date six months after the US one for that sort of reason. I'll just have to immigrate!

It's very easy to make a "virtual journey" to buy a book in a different market. Kobo is perhaps the easiest.
