DAMAGED by H.M. Ward – #1 AMAZON Bestseller, New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, #1 DBW Bestseller

Description: Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It’s never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn’t even the right word.

Peter is the personification of perfection. It’s like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let’s face it–any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It’s the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn’t possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.

The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.

10 Completed Series by HM Ward


Does she ever finish a series?!” That sentiment, or something like it, has been popping up more and more lately.  I’d like to say Psh, to that. Psht! As if! Over the course of two short years I have started and finished the series below.

That’s NINE NOVELS, just for the series below, that were written and completed in 2 years. Plus the novellas!

THIS blog and my facebook page are the only places to get real answers about things. Authors aren’t allowed to comment on the Kindle forums, so please know that I’m not ignoring you when you ask questions. Come over to the FB page and any thing you ask will be answered pretty quick.

Here is a list of completed series.

  1. DAMAGED (novel, 340pgs, cliffhanger, 1 of 2 book series)
  2. DAMAGED 2 (novel, 325 pgs, no cliffhanger, 2 of 2 book series)
  3. SCANDALOUS (novel, 324 pgs no cliffhanger, was originally a stand alone)
  4. SCANDALOUS 2 (novel, 338 pgs, no cliffhanger, was added b/c of fan demand)

Many readers will enjoy a book, and go looking for another by the same author while waiting for the next release in the first series they picked up.  I often have a couple of active series going at a time, which can make it feel like everything that’s picked up leaves the readers waiting for something more.  That’s why I try to indicate completed series in the listings. Having multiple active series lets me continue writing while ideas still develop for another title. A traditional author may spend a year thinking and writing on a book. Instead of leaving that as dead time, I use it to write another book.

I know there are people who like to read series ONLY after everything is released, and that is wonderful. That is also the reason why the listings indicate if the book is part of a series, and how many there are. e.g. STRIPPED is 1 of 2.

As a general rule of thumb, H.M. Ward romance novels have 2 books per series, and 5 books per serial unless otherwise stated.

The exception to the rule is THE ARRANGEMENT. It does not have a firm number of books in the series because it is fan driven. That means the fans are dictating what happens to the story line (e.g. Should I leave in the dark sex scene in book 5?, Should Avery and Marty’s relationship change?, Should Sean propose?, What should happen to Mel?, etc.) Every decision the fans make alters the story and adds to it.

For people who like to know how many books the series will have, I can’t tell you yet. I do know that it’s winding down, but that’s all I know. It depends on what the fans ask for at this point. I strongly suggest NOT reading this series if you hate cliffhangers. The Arrangement series is the only series that I have that’s like this. It’s sold over a million copies and has at least half a million fans who LOVE the story and are dying for more.

Another common question is about release dates. Novels typically have a firm release dates, while serials do not. Why is that? It’s so that the serials get into your hands faster. If I set a publication date, I have to stall the release for as long as several weeks, which would suck. So I don’t do that. I release serials as soon as they’re finished, which is generally every 3-4 weeks.

On average, I’ve released a new book every 2.5 weeks this year.

RELEASE INFO! Last Monday A LITTLE CHRISTMAS ROMANCE was released. This upcoming Monday THE PROPOSITION 1 will come out. The following Monday will be THE ARRANGEMENT 12. Then, I’ll drop.

That’ll be 45 books written and published in 2 years.

New Release: A LITTLE CHRISTMAS ROMANCE Only 99 Cents Today


ONLY 99 CENTS (reg. price $2.99)

A new little Christmas story.


A Short Holiday Romance by New York Times Bestselling Author H.M. Ward

There’s no such thing as second chances, and Brooke would know. This Christmas will be spent alone and celebrated, same as the last. It doesn’t matter that she’s a disgruntled mall elf, standing next to a chimney-scented Santa with the most annoying co-worker ever. It doesn’t make Christmas more magical. It’s just another day to endure, and the holiday can’t pass fast enough. That is, until her old flame, Chris, spots her.

After taking a picture with Brooke in her elf costume, things take an unexpected turn. Maybe getting through the night won’t be so difficult after all.

This short holiday novella is 96 pages in the print edition.






*Note: This book will be available on iTunes, Nook, and Kobo. It was uploaded but hasn’t appeared yet. I’ll post links as soon as it’s up. The paperback will be available in a few days.

What readers are saying:

“A heartfelt, loving Christmas story”

“I loved that Brooke and Chris playfully bantered with each other. There’s a hot cocoa scene that is very sexy. I absolutely loved this book!!!”

“A great short story about lasting love. Romantic, uplifting, heartwarming and gets you in the Christmas spirit.”

Happy Holidays! Thank you so much!

10th New York Times Bestseller This Year for H.M. Ward!

I wanted to take a second to say thank you to all of my readers. You guys are awesome. THE ARRANGEMENT 11 hit the New York Times & USA Today bestseller’s list. Plus, it made it onto Digital Book World’s list, which is something since an Indie hasn’t made their list in over a month.

The other thing I’m super excited about is that this is my 10th New York Times Bestseller this year! Talk about thing I never thought would happen. Hitting the list once is amazing, but 10 times? There are no words to describe how awesome that is, and I know the only reason I hit any list is because of you guys, so thank you so much! Thank you for telling your sisters, your friends, and your family about my stories and jumping to buy them when they come out. You guys are amazing!

Some of you know I’ve been under the weather, so stuff like this is awesome. Plus all the Mr. Turkey pictures one of the fans posts on Twitter cracks me up, so I’m setting things up to play a game. I bought a turkey vulture and we’re going to play PASS THE TURKEY. More info coming on that coming soon. Watch the FB page, because sign up will be done over there.
