Dark Ocean

Nerd Romance

Nerd in Shining Armor

He loved her from afar until Fate tossed them in the ocean...

Genevieve Terrence never imagined an island-hopping flight to Maui would end with her sociopathic boss pointing a gun at her head. Or that she’d wind up stranded on a remote island with nerdy computer programmer Jackson Farley. Good thing she knows a thing or two about surviving a standoff with Mother Nature.

Jack can’t believe his luck. Not only is he a hero in Genevieve’s eyes after crash-landing the plane and pulling her to shore, but the sophisticated woman he thought was untouchable is rapidly transforming into a fun-loving hillbilly with a passion for…everything. And his ripped clothes, beard stubble and display of muscles seem to be seducing her way better than his genius IQ. That’s fine with him. He’ll play any role she wants as long as he gets the privilege of holding her.

But when danger invades their private hideaway, the nerd and his beauty must fight side by side if they want to make it off the island alive...
