Smart Girls Think Twice
Small Town, Big Love
Sociologist Emma Riley’s new research project depends on a sexy bartender who wants nothing to do with her project—and certainly nothing to do with Emma. Too bad she’s way too smart to ever take no for an answer.

Where dangerously sexy men are concerned....SMART GIRLS
With her job hanging in the balance, sociologist Emma Riley
is back in her hometown of Rock Creek, Pennsylvania, for
both her sisters' weddings. As if that isn't depressing
enough, Emma also needs to stay focused on the research
project that could save her job and launch her career. Her
success hinges on sexy Rock Creek newcomer Jake Slayter.
Unfortunately, Jake wants nothing to do with Emma -- or her
big project. He has his own motives for being in Rock Creek,
and if there's one thing he can't afford, it's a distraction
in the form of a brainy beauty like Emma. Too bad Emma has
made it perfectly clear that she's way too smart to let him
stand in her way. Too bad Jake has made it perfectly clear
that he's way too smart to take no for an answer!

How do you keep your "bad boys" from becoming cliche characters?

I love Ryan Boldari, Nora Roberts' hero in Homeport...he's a good guy, but a bad boy! I think that the key to them is a cynical shell hiding a soft, vulnerable (may have been hurt before) heart....Chris

I love the bad boy heroes, too, if they aren't toooo bad! Sometimes I read a book where the guy I figured should be the hero is completely unredeemable, then the author twists things around until he shows a good side. Doesn't always work for me.
Your heroes' flaws compliment the heroines' strong suits in each story, and bring her around to reaching out to him, whether she thinks she wants to, or not!
Smart Girls has such strong attraction between them that it sizzled off the page!
I won't say more, in case of spoiling it for others. It really works for me :-)

He has to be a good guy, but a oh so bad boy to keep my attention. Sometimes a bad boy is just really a bad guy all the wat around and Lord knows, we don't need any more of them!
