H.M. Ward – The Arrangement Series Reading Order

by Maryse on April 25, 2013 · 100 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

Quick Note: There are three series by this author that all “intertwine” because they’re about: One family, 3 brothers, 3 different series that intertwine – SEAN: THE ARRANGEMENT, PETER: DAMAGED, JONATHAN: STRIPPED

The author says:

“they can be read in any order.  Or you can do what the die hard fans do and read according to release order starting with ARRANGEMENT 1 and follow the publication dates.”

Julie pointed these out to me…

“I have been reading books by H.M. Ward and thought you may enjoy as well. Currently my favorite is The Arrangement series. Happy reading!”

Tammie: I love the arrangement series! Can’t wait for book 6 they are great. Also check out her Secret series oh so goooood yummy Cole!

Looks like another installment series and it appears #4 & #5 leave you with some seriously “angrifying” cliffhangers from the reviews I’ve read. Eeeeep! LOL! I know I’ll be waiting until it’s complete, but many seem to have been enjoying it, so here it is up to now.

Oh and, after seeing how many enjoyed her latest release (a student/teacher romance entitled “Damaged” from a brand new series she is starting – yep – another cliffhanger I’ve heard) I’ll be looking into this author. Looks up my alley.

About book #1:

FML is becoming Avery’s motto. Just when she doesn’t think things could get any worse, they do. When her car stalls out at a busy intersection and she gets out to check under the hood, a guy steals her car. Armed with a dress and a pair of Chucks, Avery runs after the thief. When a hot stranger offers to help, she can’t say no. That’s how Avery meets Sean Ferro, the totally sexy, totally damaged guy with more secrets than she has time for.

Avery doesn’t have time for anything anymore. Her is life falling apart and it’s not just the car. It’s everything, and it doesn’t matter how tightly she tries to hold on, there’s nothing left to hold on to. With the sudden death of her parents, it’s only a matter of months until Avery’s shot at college is gone, and she’s living in a cardboard box. Other students have their families to rely on when things get bad. Avery has no one.

But there’s one option, one incredibly sexy, morally devoid, option. If Avery takes a job as a call girl, one guy could save her. One client. One time. She just has to say yes.


Reader questions (answered by author) as found on author’s Facebook page:

A: 1 family, 3 brothers, 3 different series that intertwine – SEAN: THE ARRANGEMENT, PETER: DAMAGED, JONATHAN: STRIPPED

I looked into these books after reading Damaged by this same author. Though they sounded like something that would appeal to me, I am not about to pay $3 per book, when each is a short novella at best. already with the fifth it would be $15 for maybe 500 pages. Though the books have been given good reviews, I’ll have to pass on these. Maybe, eventually the author will put it into 1 or 2 books total for a much more reasonable price.

sandy sciacca April 26, 2013 at 12:41 PM

i’m so waiting for book 6 to find out how it all ends, I dont’ normally get into these series where u keep having to buy another book every few weeks but this one got me from the get go and i have loved it, bad boy, good girl but she needs money and he has secrets and it goes from there:)

Vikki April 26, 2013 at 5:28 PM

After being suckered into buying a few chapters of a book at a time, (not from the author) I’ve finally learned to check the number of pages before I buy. It’s too bad that I’m missing some really great books by some really talented authors but I just can’t justify the price.

Vikki April 26, 2013 at 5:30 PM

Oops! I meant ….. “not from this author” not “from the author.”

Amanda May 16, 2013 at 7:33 AM

Up to 7 books so far and it doesn’t look like it’s anywhere near complete.

I think I may just end up waiting until the series is done before I look into getting anymore, it’s driving me banana’s.

Jamie May 24, 2013 at 5:34 AM

Anyone have an idea when book 8 will be released? Im going crazy here!!!!!!!!

Jenny May 27, 2013 at 10:31 PM

When is book 8 coming out?!!! How many more books will there be?! Really good!!! Can’t wait to read more!!!

Shannon June 27, 2013 at 12:49 AM

Does anyone if book 8 is actually out yet? It says it is out but I can’t find it on Amazon. Can anyone help? I’m dying to find out what happens next!!!

Andrea June 29, 2013 at 1:00 AM

According to the website goodsreads, book 8 is out, but I can’t find it on amazon yet. But I’m still looking. I am sssooo addicted to this series. I can’t stand having to wait for the next one.

Nasheetah June 30, 2013 at 3:34 AM

OMW! I’ve went and done it to myself again..*sigh* am i just a sucker for series without the ending in sight? I feel like i’m swinging from 1 cliff to another! I thot Anything He Wants was gonna drive me crazy enough..but no..unconciously, i went & added The Arrangement to my list…wow..i feel like slapping myself right now..oohhk..i need to get over myself..
@Maryse-any idea on when we can expect anything?

lori little July 1, 2013 at 5:52 AM

Cheryl July 5, 2013 at 12:07 PM

christina July 5, 2013 at 11:15 PM

When is part 9 coming out.. Just read all 8 this week snd now I have to wait.

Tami July 7, 2013 at 2:30 AM

When does book 9 come out?

cat July 13, 2013 at 8:40 PM

can someone tell me when the next arrrangment book will be out, ……..this is the worst way to read a book, up to book 8 and still not finished.

Becky July 19, 2013 at 7:07 PM

Ridiculous to pay so much for each small incert. I have enjoyed reading them. I don’t like hanging! Waiting on Arrangement 9 to come out.

Holly July 19, 2013 at 11:12 PM

Waiting for Book 9! Please Hurry, I can’t stand waiting!!!!!!

Angelica July 23, 2013 at 7:08 AM

Does anyone know when part 9 will be coming out? I don’t like the waiting part.

Lissette July 24, 2013 at 3:02 PM

I been waiting for part 9 too…as per HM Ward Facebook it is coming out the first part of Aug & then Sept 2 Stripped will come out which will be Jon’s book but they are all in it… And there is mentioned about wedding plans but but does not say which brother??? Cannot wait!!!

lori little July 26, 2013 at 7:16 PM

love all h m ward books

sue July 29, 2013 at 10:23 PM

why cant you buy the whole 8 books in one make a novel they just getting greedy here

sharmanika watkins August 18, 2013 at 11:08 PM

So I’m confused??? Your releasing stripped on sept.2nd, but part 10 of the arrangement is not out? That doesn’t really make sense. Why leave us hanging with one brother then move to the next brother. So how long do we have to wait for part 10???????

marie claxon August 30, 2013 at 9:04 AM

I would love to win a signed book from you. I love your books

Charisse September 6, 2013 at 9:19 AM

I LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!! I am also confused though. I am awaiting The Arrangement 10 and #6 of Trystan Scott. He and Mari are just beginning their futures together and you have Trystan being a manwhore in Stripped. I am not happy about this and it’s very confusing. I love how your books intertwine, but they don’t flow in order.

yvonne September 9, 2013 at 1:04 PM

#10 has been so long coming i will have to read #9 again to back in the story

Veronica September 19, 2013 at 12:40 AM

The books are really great, but there so many at once, you read one series then have to wait for another, then you start so long with another but you forgot what happened in the other one because it took so long to before another is out, please finish with The Arrangement first then take one the next one.

Cathy September 19, 2013 at 11:48 AM

I guess I should have read all this first: how frustrating to read and to only find out that there’s more and the more isn’t available yet URG….I hope it`s coming soon?

tami heiple September 19, 2013 at 5:31 PM

When is book 10 of the arrangement coming out? I can’t wait

Shanna September 20, 2013 at 2:57 PM

I luv luv luv The Arrangement Series, but I’m dying for book 10!!!! What’s the release date????

Maryse September 20, 2013 at 3:28 PM

The author just posted two different covers that she’s choosing from for #10, so it should be soon. :)

Rhonda September 22, 2013 at 10:46 AM

I have tried really hard to support this author her stories are very interesting but appear to be a lot of novellas that intertwine from 4 different ( The arrangement, damaged, stripped, secret life of Tristan scott) series at $3 per download. This was be acceptable if each iteration was an actual story instead of fluff and error free. these books are so not worth it

crystalboese September 24, 2013 at 9:00 AM

The book 10is out ..on kindle or amazon

Veronica September 27, 2013 at 8:47 AM

So addicted read 1-10 in 1 day so when is #11 coming!!

Teri September 29, 2013 at 3:23 PM

Read Damaged 1 and 2 directly followed by The Arrangement series. I am enjoying them but surley there can only be one or two left! When is 11 due out.

Tami October 2, 2013 at 9:09 AM

When will “The Arrangement 11″ be released?

Jenn leto October 5, 2013 at 11:43 AM

Hi…..does anyone know when number 11 Will be released? I hate waiting! Lol

Christine Wash November 3, 2013 at 10:41 AM

Have enjoyed reading the short stories the arrangement read all 11 within thr week .When will “the arrangement 12″ be released ? This is the only problem when books follow on is the waiting for the next book

becky November 9, 2013 at 3:55 PM

Release date for #12 please???

amanda November 11, 2013 at 12:20 PM

When is the arangment 12 coming out.. the end of 11 was such a cliffhanger. . That was cheating. .lol.. love all of her books

Fionnuala November 14, 2013 at 2:41 PM

Wen is volume 12 out driving me mad

Maryse November 14, 2013 at 3:35 PM

There is no way for me to know in advance. Since these are “indie” books, they don’t necessarily have a set release date. However once I find our the author has released a new one, I update this blog with the info.

carrie November 20, 2013 at 7:55 PM

I love the series however the books seem to be getting shorter every time. When will they end? When is 12 coming out?

Brenda November 24, 2013 at 7:58 PM

When is book 12 of the arrangement coming out

Angie November 26, 2013 at 12:29 PM

when is Arrangement 12 coming out?

susan December 3, 2013 at 8:25 PM

When is 12 coming out I need to know

Angela December 4, 2013 at 12:59 AM

It says at the end of the book (at least on my kindle) that if you text AWESOMEBOOKS to 22828 (it then replies and asks for your e-mail) you can be e-mailed release info. Hopefully this helps I just finished 11 and am dying to read 12 so I know how you all feel haha

Val December 28, 2013 at 4:28 AM

Do you know if 10, 11 and 12 will be available on audio book?

Annette December 29, 2013 at 9:59 AM

Please can you tell me when book 13 of The Arrangement series comes out

Kelly December 30, 2013 at 9:45 PM

I know 10 will be out on audiobooks Jan 14th, but when is 11 and 12!!

Cheri January 3, 2014 at 7:32 AM

I have read all the Arrangement book 1-12 and tried to find 13. There is no information on when it will be released. I really dont want to start another series on the brothers until I finish one and it is a little expensive for such a short novel.

Monica January 9, 2014 at 8:35 PM

can you tell when it will be released the arrangement 13?? pleasee!!!

Roxanne January 10, 2014 at 11:08 PM

I have read Stripped is there a Stripped Two? If their is when will it be released? Fantastic reads…..

aditi January 12, 2014 at 9:56 AM

Dying to read the arrangement#13!!!! When will it be out???!!!!

Lisa January 14, 2014 at 9:17 PM

I agree that the books are so short I just finished 12 and will not buy anymore by the time it ends you could have 60 dollars out of your pocket

Sheetal January 19, 2014 at 11:41 AM

Can some1 PLZzzz tell me the name of the male model on the cover page of The Arrangement by Ward

Margaret Wilson January 19, 2014 at 6:52 PM

I just completed reading The Arrangement and was disappointed because I thought volume 12 was the end of the series. How many more volumes to this series? I really enjoy reading the arrangement. Is it possible to combine your short stories into maybe three to four books. Just asking?? When is the release date for The Prospositon -3 and The Arrangement – 13?

Martha January 20, 2014 at 12:56 PM

Where is book 13 for the Arrangement? I hate being left hanging. Does anyone know when it will be out?

lorane January 20, 2014 at 4:16 PM

Love the series ,but wondering when is stripped 2 coming out?????

Lucy January 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM

I read all the Arrangement Series I couldn’t put them down. Please tell me when Book 13 is coming out.

Your writing is amazing. The story line flows from one book to another and its like watch a series on T.V.

I hope I don’t have to wait too long for Book 13.

thank you

Alicia February 3, 2014 at 5:12 PM

Just finished book 13… Getting frustrated with the length of the books and the cliffhangers. Wish I knew how many there will be. 13 was released today and took me less than an hour to read. :(

Cindi Adkins February 6, 2014 at 5:59 PM

I agree with Alicia, I’m getting frustrated with the length of the books.
I love the arrangement series but finishing the book in less than an hour and being left hanging for so long between books is awful. At this point I would live to know how many there is going to be. This has almost ruined me from reading a series untill they are all released. When will 14 be released? Hopefully it wont be long.

Linda February 17, 2014 at 6:27 PM

When will The Arrangement 14 be out?

Christine February 19, 2014 at 9:35 AM

I agree with Alicia and Cindi, I love the series but I am up to $47.00 for all 14 short stories. Can you not end it in book 14, cause if you go to book 15 I will not be purschasing anymore after that one. The story has to end! Great story am loving it, I already read Damaged 1 & 2 loved them but this is like the never ending short story.

Dawn February 23, 2014 at 12:37 PM

I agree with many of these posts, love the books, but enough already. $2.99 for 100 pages is becoming ridiculous and I’m done being the fool. I’ve read all of Ward’s books and enjoyed them all, but “The Arrangement” has run its course and drained my finances for one story line. It’s time to bring it to an end.

Martha February 24, 2014 at 12:03 PM

I also agree. Dragging the story out so long is getting boring and to costly. It is time to find something else to read that has a finish.

Lisa March 4, 2014 at 10:38 PM

I with everyone it is a great series but it seems never ending. I’ve read all 14 parts in one day and now what? I understand there are two other books involving the other brothers, are they worth it? Peter and Jon’s story didn’t pique my interest in The Arrangement, but if their stories are like Sean’s (swoon) then I am down for reading them

Erika March 9, 2014 at 11:28 PM

When are we gonna see book 15

Tammy March 19, 2014 at 7:44 PM

When will book 15 be coming out? what about stripped 2?

Deb April 24, 2014 at 10:18 AM

Can’t wait for #15. I love the series!!
Can you let me know when it will be out??

Jenny Lengal May 2, 2014 at 2:17 PM

Love the Arrangement series and have purchased up to #10 but don’t want to buy any more till all have been released. How many will there be before it ends?

Michelle June 7, 2014 at 7:27 PM

I love Sean and Avery. I just wish it wasn’t 15 separate novellas. But regardless, I paid, read and enjoyed. Thx

Jean June 8, 2014 at 10:59 PM

I love the Arrangement Series. Ive read Peter story (Damages) loved it. I’ve been eeading Brian story ( The Proposition) loved it. But when are you goung to continue with Jon (Stripped) story?

Cindy June 22, 2014 at 8:28 PM


Renee Whiteside July 10, 2014 at 8:07 PM

I just finished reading The Arrangement 15 and wish someone could please tell me if Sean **** or will there be a volume 16? I SURE HOPE SO!!!

tracie July 25, 2014 at 10:46 PM

I need to know if there is a 16 in the arrangement?

Renee Whiteside July 29, 2014 at 8:46 AM

From what I have heard there will be a volume 16 in The Arrangement series. She has to release Proposition 5 first and then it will follow. I am looking forward to finding out what happened! I am also looking forward to reading her other books about the Ferro brothers. I hope this helps.

Christina August 8, 2014 at 9:36 PM

I love this series but I’m with the other ladies. Each “book” gets shorter as they come out. I really want to know how the story ends but not sure how much more money I am willing to spend to find out. Plus the length of time it takes for the next one to come out is getting kind of annoying.

Ailsa August 13, 2014 at 5:18 AM

Can you pleasssse tell me the arrangement 16 is due to be released

shortie August 25, 2014 at 9:43 AM

I only started the arrangement because I thought every book was already out! I agree with everyone else. I love the story but each book is way too short!

Angie September 3, 2014 at 4:27 PM

I agree that the Arrangement series books are way short, but I really do love Sean & Avery!

Caroline September 29, 2014 at 10:37 PM

Will there be a arrangement 17, I just finish reading the 1st 16 version of Sean ‘s and Avery’s life and I need more info.

susan October 5, 2014 at 7:32 PM

When will book 17 come out. This series is so addicting! Can’t wait to read it!

Barbara October 7, 2014 at 3:46 PM

When will 17 be out???? I can’t wait!!!!!

susan December 9, 2014 at 2:09 PM

When will book 18 be out, any idea? I hate not to continue and being keep waiting. Lol

yvonne December 10, 2014 at 3:00 AM

the arrangement has went on so long I have forgot half of it. it seem like you are making thing up because you don’t know how to end the story ,you have got it so off track from the original story .that I dont think there can be a end .you have had two year have a little mercy on your readers. is it a.bout money are do really have a passion for writing ? your books are very good storys,but you murdered the arrangement,one of your best.

yvonne December 10, 2014 at 3:12 AM

I love your storys it a shame I will not be buying any more I can’t afford to go on and on .where is the excitment the togetternest iis gone she had sex withsome one else . now what?I am finish.

CHARISSE December 10, 2014 at 9:41 AM

I LOVE the Arrangement and all her other books, but I too will not be reading any more of her EXPENSIVE STORIES. I could understand maybe if the book took longer than an hour to read, but at 18 volumes, $60 and no end of how many more books to end this story is so ridiculous.

Martha December 12, 2014 at 4:11 PM

I enjoyed your books but I must stop now. The story is dragging on to long and each booklet is very short. At a cost of over 60 dollars I can longer feel it is worth it. I would hope you would finish it in the next booklet but an sure you wont.

Vikki February 3, 2015 at 9:44 PM

OK…..I’ve got to read these! Are they bundled in anywhere?

B.J. March 10, 2015 at 9:42 PM

Is the finale of “The Arrangement” going to be published? The story has become very convoluted and hope 18 will pull everything together and end it already! No more buying a book by the chapter.

Charisse March 11, 2015 at 12:28 AM

As much as I love H M WARD’s books, never again will I start another of her series because they are waaaaaaaaay to short and EXPENSIVE. She never comments and she never responds to anyone’s questions. I seem to have gotten lost along the way in the series. I’m a bit confused. Anyone else???

Martha March 16, 2015 at 1:23 PM

I agree with many above. Her story line is convoluted and has lost interest. If I want to pay $70 dollars for a book it would be much better then this one. I feel we were cheated out of s good book some where.

Lorane March 19, 2015 at 8:04 AM

I love your books! But what I can’t stand is how arrangement series is being dragged out. I really want to keep reading books by you ,but cost is be coming to much.

Sue April 30, 2015 at 5:14 PM

OK, I have read all 18 books on the Arrangement. I agree with all the people above and would like to see it end. I just keep one from the previously read books so I can get an idea of what happened when the new book finally does come out. Also, yes it is extremely costly to keep doing this.

Lorane June 17, 2015 at 12:12 AM

I love the Arrangement series ,but enough is enough. Just finished book 19 and now have to wait till Aug for book 20 makes no sense. I haven’t read any more of your series because I can’t wait for ever to finish a series!!!!
As it is it took forever for book 19 to come out . NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!!!!

C Townes August 28, 2015 at 10:52 AM

I just finished The Arrangement Book 20 When will Book 21 and beyond be available since I am holding my breath for the next series of events for Avery and Sean

louise October 30, 2015 at 1:09 AM

I am looking forward to the next series in the arrangement. When will the next book come out.

Nita Hickman November 23, 2015 at 11:54 AM

Please Please tell me when the Audio books of Arrangement volume 16 through volume 20 or 21will be out? I feel I am in the middle of book and now I am lost! Please let me know when I can but the rest.

Liz March 21, 2016 at 9:00 PM

Can anyone give me the reading order of the Ferro books? I know someone knows and it makes possibly be posted above, but if you could just bump it up so I can see it… that would be awesome! Thanks

Virginia March 26, 2016 at 10:04 PM

Like comic books for kids… 1chapter per book, no end in sight and you allowance is gone. Would be a great read if sold as real book instead of a way to fatten her account and deplete mine. Not one more dime!
