    Gentlemen Prefer NerdsGentlemen Prefer Nerds by Joan Kilby

    Synopsis: 
     

    Self-professed nerd Maddie Maloney is an expert on jewels. Jewel thieves are another matter entirely! So when a mysterious Englishman warns her that a thief known as The Chameleon is after the rare pink diamond on display in her aunt’s shop, she tells herself it’s just a joke. Even if she can’t get Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome out of her mind…

    But Fabian Montgomery doesn’t give up easily. He’s everywhere she goes, convinced the thief will strike. And when the diamond does go missing—and Maddie is suspected of stealing it—he whisks her away from the police and together they pursue The Chameleon.

    Fabian plunges her into a glamorous world far from her humble workshop and transforms geeky Maddie into a sophisticated siren capable of espionage. Her mission: to seduce The Chameleon and steal back the diamond.

    But Fabian isn’t telling her everything—like who he works for, and why he’s so interested in The Chameleon…

    Of course if Amanda and her friends were watching, they’d think she was insane and wonder where Fabian had got to, but that didn’t matter now.  With any luck Maddie would never have to face them again.  She glanced at Roland’s watch.  Fabian had been gone a good twenty minutes; surely he’d be back soon with the Rose and they could both disappear.

    Roland called uncle first.  In a lull between songs he put a hand to his heart and said, ” I could use a drink.  What about you?” Maddie glanced toward the exit for Fabian.  Still not there. “A drink would be great.”

    That’s my teaser for this week.  I am really enjoying this read.  I needed  a good break! What do you have to tease me with this week?  I look forward to your comments!
