Release Date: July 26 2013

Goodreads | Amazon US | Amazon UK

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.

Now that Samantha Smith has confronted the demons from her dark past in FEARLESS, she’s excited to jump into adulthood with newfound confidence and friends Romeo, Madison, and Kamiko.
Samantha passionately hopes that her dreams of becoming an artist are more than girlish fancy. All she has to do for them to come true is change her major from Accounting to Art, but she fears her parents will fly off the handle when she reveals her intentions.
Christos Manos, the ultimate bad-boy boyfriend, is committed to staying by Samantha’s side, nurturing her and helping her discover her potential, no matter what obstacles are thrown in her way.
When Samantha’s life starts to unravel, Christos is the only person she can turn to for the emergency support she needs. But Christos is fighting his own dark demons, tangled secrets he’s kept hidden from the beginning.
Samantha will be tested to the limits of her resilience, and must discover how truly Fearless she can be in the name of love.
WARNING!! The steam factor in RECKLESS will be significantly steamier than it was in FEARLESS.

Series Synopsis



There’s only one rule in Rock & Roll:
Don’t sleep with anyone in the band.

Victory Payne is the hottest lead guitar player on the night club scene of Hollywood’s infamous Sunset Strip until she breaks rock’s cardinal rule and falls in love with her lead singer, the gorgeous and brooding Scott Walker.

Unfortunately for Victory, Scott was just using her reputation as a guitar virtuoso to help land his own solo record contract and advance his career. After Scott signs with a major label, he kicks Victory out of the band, out of his house, and out of his life forever.

Blindsided by Scott’s betrayal, Victory has to start over at the bottom. The heartbreak of two wasted years of hard work on her relationship with troublesome Scott and the band threatens to cripple her spirit. But Victory refuses to give up.
Victory never gives up.

Without a job, a place to live, or the next gig to look forward to, Victory vows to rebuild her fledgling musical career. She has her car, her guitar, and she’s ready to claw her way to success.
This time, Victory won’t let love stand in her way.

Fate has other ideas and throws a roadblock by the name of Kellan Burns in her way. Kellan is primed to claim the title of hottest lead guitar player in Los Angeles with his rugged good looks and his own guitar slung as low as his tight jeans. Kellan isn’t the kind of guy to let some upstart babe with a six string stand in his way.

Victory Payne, meet Kellan Burns.


Ladies, you will need a fire extinguisher for this one.


We can’t wait to read these – they promise to be steamier than Devon’s Samantha Series series and we really can’t resist a rock star romance!
