AP new - synopsis.jpg

Bestselling author Devon Hartford brings you another scorching hot and scandalous standalone romance.


The night the EMTs rolled Lion Maxwell into my ER turned my life upside down.
Although he was bloody and battered from defending his title as the WMAA’s reigning cruiserweight champion, his cocky grin lit up the room.
And every cell in my body.
Our fiery chemistry was off the charts.
The ER staff sensed it.
Lion’s entourage and his drooling groupies sensed it too.
If the two of us had been alone, I might have done something entirely unprofessional and completely unethical right there in the exam room. But I was his attending physician. A sexual or romantic relationship with him was grounds for my termination or worse, revoking my medical license. I wouldn’t risk my career on a moment of passion. It didn’t stop that arrogant caveman from doing everything he could to get me into his hospital bed.
After denying his advances for weeks, the last thing I expected were the wild nights he would be spending in my bed.
It was supposed to be nothing more than a secret fling.
I knew it couldn’t last.
He was still my patient.
What we were doing was wrong.
If anyone found out, it could ruin my life.
But we couldn’t let go.
We were bound to each other on some primal level that consumed us.
Sometimes love is tragic.
Sometimes two people aren’t meant to be together.
But sometimes, two people overcome all adversity and build a love that lasts forever.
I knew deep in my heart that Lion Maxwell could be my happily ever after.
As long as we kept our love a secret.
I wish I’d known that some secrets are too hard to keep…


Broken Lion Pre-Release-01 July 05.jpg

As I had just finished another book I could directly dive into “Broken Lion” by Devon Hartford when it appeared on my Kindle.

I have to say it was not what I expected it to be from the blurb. Well
it is exactly like it is described in the Blurb yes but somehow I
thought it would be different.
Gosh – how do I explain myself … first things first …
enjoyed the book it is a solid 4 star – which is great in my world. But
still there was something different about the characters and I mean
different bordering on strange.
Lion was a walking contradiction… Didn’t that man feel any pain ? Yeah
here I am directly in the middle of my “no 5th star for this book” issue
… – The issue that is called feeling.
female lead Brigid is solid – from all sides – she is solid in her part
of this book, solid written and a clear / great character.
Lion is sorry to says – as equally strange as he is great …. It is
difficult to explain my thoughts without spoilers so I try to be vague.
from the Blurb we know he is in hospital – so no surprise in me telling
you YES he is hurt … but is he hurting … ahm let me check… ahm NO …
instead he is so cocky he might be sitting in a bar with his pickup
that was the reason I had problems to pick up the moment when the
playful banter became a real relationship… after a while it worked but
still that guy remained strange … I am just thinking about his
interactions and thoughts about the cats ..
would have never expected those from a guy Lets just say … the reader
needs to be open minded when it comes to Lion because he changes so fast
from sweet and thoughtful to outright strange and annoying in the blink
of an eye.
was my fist book by this author so I am not sure if this character
development is a trait of him or not or if it was just special in this
it is different – but not in a bad way. The plot and writing of this
story is solid and well developed with characters that are real (when it
comes to Brigid) and intriguingly strange (Lion).
I enjoyed my time with this book that I managed to read in one extended session lasting all day yesterday.
