COCKY NERD cover reveal and teasers!

I’m really excited to present Cocky Nerd, but first I want to thank the romance bloggers (and author Heidi McLaughlin!) for mentioning the release of Every Inch of You earlier this month. It was such a nice surprise and very much appreciated.

Here’s the cover for my next steamy romantic comedy, Cocky Nerd, which is available for pre-order HERE and will be free in Kindle Unlimited on March 16th.


You may recognize this impossibly handsome model from approximately one gazillion other romance covers, but he’s usually looking all serious and/or rock star-like. I realize that this cover isn’t as supersexy as Every Inch of You, but this image makes me smile so hard, and I hope it makes you happy too.

Here is the BLURB for Cocky Nerd:

Not gonna lie to you.

When he walked into my restaurant, I thought he was the hottest man I’d ever seen in person.

And then he spoke.

And I realized who he was.

The world now knows him as John Brandt—ridiculously wealthy handsome genius workaholic startup founder and tech entrepreneur. I will always think of him as the annoying geek who was my older brother’s best friend. He yanked my pigtails and called me Tiny Dancer. I put rubber snakes in his sleeping bag and called him Johnny B. Nerdballs.

Market research has told him that he needs a girlfriend for an important business trip and gala event. He says he doesn’t want to bring someone that he has to impress or make an effort with, so he thought of me and figures I could use a nice vacation from my life right about now.

He is one cocky nerd. Even if he’s right.

I need the money and he can actually help me with my career, but I think he needs to be schooled in the art of treating a lady right. Lucky for him, I am just the woman to finally teach him…Turns out his total lack of social skills does not correspond to a lack of skills in the bedroom. At all. He even teaches me a few new tricks.

Every time he opens his obnoxious mouth I can’t believe this guy’s for real. Every time he touches me, every time he reminds me of who I was before I started to lose myself in the big city, I can’t believe that what we have right now is fake.

I’m afraid that by the end of the month either I will have punched him in the face, or the last man on earth I ever thought I’d fall in love with will have broken my heart. Or both.


Cocky Nerd is a standalone older brother’s best friend / fake relationship romantic comedy with a real sexy nerd, real laughs, real steam and a real happy ending. Brainy is the new sexy!


She is poetry in motion and I am a brain attached to a body-2

I blink, trying to stop staring at his well-formed mouth.
