In Praise of Smart Men


Sure, women all want a hot guy. If he happened to be a dapper billionaire, that would be great, too. But killer abs and a private jet only go so far when you actually need to live with someone – or worse, if you're depending on someone to help save your life in a moment of crisis.
As the wife of a Ph.D. engineer, I think I can speak from a place of experience that the smart man is highly underrated. Smart men bring all kinds of things to the table:
·        They're natural problem-solvers. When there's something wrong in your life, a smart man will always be on top of trying to make it better.
·        They're fast learners. They don't need to read instructions, and they won't need you to, ahem, give them directions, either, if you know what I mean. From assembling a car engine to navigating the important parts of a woman, they get the lay of the land quickly and then put that knowledge to good use.
·        They provide free, in-home tech support. Do NOT underestimate the value of this.
·        They're smart enough to realize how awesome you are. Smart men prioritize. Sure, some of your quirks may annoy them, but they can see through that to what matters and to what makes you so special and deserving of love.
In my new book, Unacceptable Risk, the hero, Edison is a very, very smart man. He's a tuner -- or a doctor that specializes in cybernetic body modifications like memory-enhancing computer chips, vision-correcting implants and other devices that blend circuitry and flesh. While the heroine of the book, Plix, is the one out on the front lines fighting the bad guys, Edison is the one who takes care of everything behind the scenes, keeping her safe and finding ways to take down evil. That he also happens to be gorgeous and well-off is just a bonus. 

And like any smart man, he's a life-saver. In his natural problem-solver way, he proposes a solution when Plix decides she needs to go on a dangerous raid. He learns fast that there's only one way to make Plix take his feelings and his very real concerns about her recklessness seriously. He provides tech support in the form of saving her life -- reintegrating her circuitry into her nervous system and helping her recover memories after the bad guys try to steal them from her.

And he's smart enough to realize that in spite of her recklessness, her attempts at keeping her emotional distance, and her obsession with saving the world, she's the girl he was always meant to love.




BOOK BLURB

She may learn to live for love…if vengeance doesn’t kill her first.


Plix spends her lonely, gritty life trying to solve the mysteries her father left behind. Armed with a variety of cybernetic enhancements and a talent for getting into places she shouldn’t be, she searches for clues to his murder—and who’s responsible for poisoning her city.


Waking up on a street corner with her brain wiring fried to a crisp, she figures she must have gotten close this time. There’s only one man she trusts to pull her back from the brink: a tuner who can retrieve the evidence hidden deep in the recesses of her mind. A man she dares not let too close to her heart.


When Edison downloads a secret SynDate schematic from Plix’s burnt-out circuitry, he knows with dreadful finality that nothing—not even the fiery kiss he’s been holding back for years—will stop her from pursuing her quest past the point of insanity.


All he can do, as he helps her plan her final mission, is ease her pain, watch her back…and hope one of them doesn’t pay with their lives. 

Product Warnings
Contains a heroine intent on kicking ass and taking names, a high-tech dystopia, cybernetic body modifications, and emotionally charged, sensual romance.

Strong smart heroines belong with strong smart men, even if if the dumb men can sometimes be REALLY pretty to look at. Still, if it's more than a one nighter, he needs to have an IQ higher than a potato chip. Great post and I totally agree.
