All I have to say is this cover is STEAMY HOT!!!! I wouldn’t say “No” if he were to show up and make a move… I’m just saying…
It’s wrong to play favorites, but I’ll confess that Brett Jordan is my favorite hero I’ve written so far. And not just because of that hip dip, that expression on his face, or whatever is happening off-screen at just-below-waist-level. He’s my favorite because he starts out at the beginning of Still So Hot! as an unrepentant serial womanizer and ends up dismantled, worked over, and thoroughly enjoyed by the matchmaker heroine whose dating boot-camp weekend his shenanigans have almost ruined. He’s not the same man by the end, except maybe for those bits you’re visually devouring right now.
Here’s the official blurb for Still So Hot!
Your “Dating Boot Camp” Itinerary
Fly to a luxurious, five-star resort in St. Barts with your personalized dating coach, Elisa Henderson. Show up on the plane with a guy you just picked up. Find out Brett Jordan isn’t just a drool-worthy hottie with a rockin’ hard bod—he’s also a total player…and Elisa’s former best friend!
Be problematic. Disappear with a cute paparazzo. Besides, Elisa and Brett are now alone in a tropical paradise, and Elisa’s about to break the first commandment of date coaching: Thou Shall Not Sexily Ravage Your Client’s Date. Lost clients, naughty nighttime shenanigans, sleazy paparazzi… Can Elisa avoid a complete PR disaster, or is her reputation about to get the boot?

Serena Bell writes stories about how sex messes with your head, why smart people do stupid things sometimes, and how love can make it all better. She wrote her first steamy romance before she was old enough to understand what all the words meant and has been perfecting the art of hiding pages and screens from curious eyes ever since—a skill that’s particularly useful now that she’s the mother of two.
For a while, Serena took a break from penning love stories to explore the world as a journalist, where she spent time shadowing and writing about a cast of fascinating real-life characters.
When she’s not writing or getting her butt kicked at Scrabble by her kids, she’s practicing modern-dance improv in the kitchen, swimming laps, taking a long walk, or reading on one of her large collection of electronic devices.
Serena blogs about reading and writing romance at www.serenabell.com and www.wonkomance.com. She also tweets like a madwoman as @serenabellbooks and posts to Facebook at www.facebook.com/serenabellbooks.
