Connor Hughes slept his way through every girl in my high school.
We hated each other.
That arrogant jerk insulted me, tormented me, and ruined me without ever laying a finger on me.
After graduating near the top of my class, I escaped to UCLA, got my degree, and threw myself into a career as a serious journalist. But I never forgot the damage Connor did.
At least I’ll never have to see him again.
Until my editor at Trending Magazine tasks me with writing a tell-all article about Connor. Turns out my insufferable bad boy nemesis grew into the ultra-gorgeous model whose perfect body steams up the covers of half the romance novels on the bestseller lists.
Now I’m stuck shadowing him all weekend long at the world’s largest Romance Convention. I’m forced to watch in disgust as 45,000 women throw themselves at him and worship his shirtless body while he taunts me incessantly.
We hate each other as much today as we did seven years ago. But I can’t stop stealing glances at his perfect abs and perfect everything else.
My better judgment tells me to drop everything and run, but something deep inside me is dying to know if he’s as HUGE as the rumors…

Collecting The Story of Samantha Smith #1-3
Three full-length novels:
Fearless, Reckless, and Painless
At the age of sixteen, Samantha Smith’s innocence was shattered in the blink of an eye. She kept the pain to herself for three years, burying her terrible secret beneath black clothes and black makeup, afraid to tell anyone. The price for her silence was the loss of her happiness and all of her friends.
After moving from stuffy Washington D.C. to laid back San Diego, where Samantha is now a freshman at San Diego University, she is determined to find new friends and reclaim her optimistic spirit. Having thrown away her goth exterior, she hopes that her new sunny look will heal her wounds.
Dreaming of adventure, she wishes to escape the humdrum middle-class existence that has repressed her fiery nature for as long as she can remember. But her parents are pressuring her to major in Accounting because it’s the safe thing to do. Samantha secretly considers ditching the business major to study Art, a choice that would horrify her parents if they ever found out.
When Samantha crosses paths with a troubled, handsome, tattoo-clad bad boy, her life spins into overdrive, and Samantha finds herself juggling more adventure than she ever dreamed possible.
College football legend.
And my ex-boyfriend.
Channing screwed me over in college.
Every way you can imagine, the good ways and the bad.
We had two passionate and unforgettable years together, until he blindsided me for no reason, and with no explanation, kicking me to the curb like yesterday’s trash.
He ruined all other men for me, and almost ruined me.
But I’m stronger than that.
I don’t need him.
My biggest regret was not kicking him to the curb first.
To this day, I still wonder: was there a reason he dumped me?
Or did he never love me?
I’ll never know.
But you know what?
I don’t care.
I’m done with that man.
Now it’s ten years later and I’m back home for the holidays in King City, the town where I grew up and we both went to college. It’s also the epicenter of our past scandal that nearly killed me and my parents when it broke.
Trust me, it made the local TV news every night for two weeks. One night, it went national.
Guess who never left King City?
The curb turd.
As relentless as he was on the field, I would’ve thought he’d go on to play in the NFL. He never did. Knee injury. Oh, the cliche.
Small pond, meet big fish.
Only this fish has grown bigger than anyone ever expected, built up his own business empire. Turns out he’s better at business than he ever was at football, and that’s saying something. Despite his knee injury, he managed to keep his college football body, abs and all. Wherever he goes, it’s raining money and marriage proposals.
When he finds out I’m home for the holidays, he just has to come knocking at my parents’ house bearing meaningless gifts.
News flash, unless he’s hoping for an immaculate conception, he has another thing coming, and it definitely won’t be me.
* * * The Nightmare Ex-Boyfriend Before Christmas is a second-chance romance with an enemies-to-lovers twist. It's gift-wrapped for you in a steamy stand-alone holiday package, and tied up with a heart-warming bow of an HEA.
Pour yourself some hot cider and start reading.
Will the Nerd Girl get her alpha male Bad Boy?
#1 bestselling author Devon Hartford brings you another hot contemporary romance with a mystical twist.
A sizzling modern take on Cinderella
Nerdy Jane Johnson has tried every beauty tip and trick known to woman, but none of them ever made men notice her.
For the first time in her life, something is working. She doesn’t recognize herself in the mirror. She has literally transformed from nerdy and plain to downright beautiful.
Before her inexplicable transformation, Jane couldn’t get a date to save her life. Now she has a date every night of the week.
Will it be the brooding alpha male Bad Boy or the arrogant alpha male Billionaire?
Gorgeous eligible men are now throwing themselves at Jane. They’re even fighting over her, actual fist fights to win her affection. It's a drama drenched love triangle in the making.
It all seems too good to be true.
The only question on Jane’s mind is whether or not her newfound beauty is going to last or if it’s some cruel trick of fate that will fade away as quickly as it appeared.
Because everybody knows, when something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
***If I Were Beautiful is a saucy standalone romance with an HEA.
They made me their plaything.
Me, Mary Angerman, a disposable distraction for the Poor Boys of Castle Hill Academy, where the Rich Boys rule and the poor follow orders.
I never thought those four drop-dead gorgeous Poor Boys would be the ones to betray me. Turns out they’ll throw me to the wolves like so much trash and I’ll never see it coming.
I was dumb enough to let them use me for their dirty schemes and wicked games, but still they betrayed me. Ripped my heart out and shredded it in their cruel claws.
If it wasn’t for those three beautifully vicious Rich Boys standing by my side in my darkest hour, I’d be going to prison.
Tried as an adult because I just turned sixteen.
Because of me, a war is brewing between the Rich Boys and the Poor Boys and I’m caught in the middle. It would be insane for me to stay all four years.
But I can’t leave.
I ran away from my shattered past to get here.
There’s no going back now.
* * * Rich Boys vs. Poor Boys is a full-length reverse harem high school bully romance with an HEA at the end of the series. This is book 1. Like in real life, the teenagers in this story frequently use graphic language, some underage drinking does occur, and there are some consensual sexual situations.
