Climb aboard a cruise ship with the strangest passenger list ever! A psycho transvestite, with killer, (literally), stiletto heels. A possible hit man for the mob who favors loud Hawaiian shirts and Blues Brothers sunglasses. A foppish cruise director with a hidden deviant sexual appetite. An aging B-list movie queen (once good friends with Marilyn Monroe) whose main objective is to land a nerd of her own, after all everyone knows how loyal nerds are! In addition, a shipload of sex starved nerds who would probably be more at home at a Star Trek convention then at sea. PI Lex Manchester wonders how he is going to keep his client, Hollywood make-up artist Gillian McCormack safe, especially from his own lustful cravings!

On the run after witnessing a murder, Gillian seeks help from her good friend and confidant elderly actress, Cora Bledsoe. Deciding to makeover plain-Jane Gillian into a Marilyn Monroe look-alike and take cover amongst a cruise full of geeks, Cora also hires her friends, Lex and his partner Dante to act as bodyguards. Tapping into their inner nerds, Lex and Dante disguise themselves to fit right in amongst the other geek passengers for what will turn into one hot adventure! After all, Nerds Like it Hot!

Get ready for nerds meet the Love Boat when Vicki Lewis Thompson sets sail with her latest nerd book, Nerds Like it Hot. VLT has her nerd formula down pat, and maybe that hampers this one a bit. Gillian and Lex are her standard nerd hero and heroine, (almost carbon copies of previous nerd leads), but the laughs flow and the sex is steamy. Nerds Like it Hot will give Vicki Lewis Thompson fans a fast read to pass the time on the beach this summer!
