PRE-ORDER on #Amazon! He's the Wicked Bad by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #ContemporaryRomance #Saga

Dark and brooding, Nick Crocetti was labeled a ‘bad boy’ from the moment he arrived in Rockland City. Now the owner of the bar, The Chief, whispers of criminal dealings and a murky past still swirl around him. Being alone suits Nick, until his high school fantasy enters his life once again.


Veronica Barnes is leaving behind a disastrous marriage along with her high-paying consulting career. Returning home, she is determined to follow a lifelong dream of opening a bakery. Meeting her secret high school crush, ‘the wicked bad’ Nick, stirs up her emotions in ways she never imagined.


Despite the mutual physical attraction—past and present—Nick and Veronica are wary, and, even though they would never admit it, —lonely. Breaking down the barriers of past heartbreak seem insurmountable, especially when the intimate bond moves toward something neither counted on—nor wanted. Acknowledging their feelings may be more than they bargained for.

Note on this book: It was previously published in 2013 with Crimson Romance's Spicy line as The Wicked Bad. 
I rec'd the rights back in 2016. Crimson Romance is no longer in business. (Bought by Simon and Schuster in late 2016, closed in 2018)

Used paperbacks of the 2013 version are still floating out there.

I have completely revised this story. First off, He's the Wicked Bad is no longer erotic, this is a mainstream series. Meaning even though the hero is on a motorcycle, he is not part of a club, and this is not a dark romance.

I also have the rights back to book 2, His Wicked Celtic Kiss. That title will not be changing.

Book 3 is written, it is called His Wicked Cold Heart

Book 4 is not written as yet. will be called He's so Wicked Good

So, just to reiterate: Not a dark or erotic romance, not a mafia romance. This is a mainstream, family saga contemporary romance.

A little about the series: The Wicked Men of Rockland City

Nestled on the Chesapeake Bay, in Rockland City, Maryland, this small industrial city has witnessed the struggle for dominance by two families: The De Lucas and the Barneses. For good or ill, their lives, and those associated with them, have intertwined for years.


The Barnes family represents law and order. The De Lucas embodies the complete opposite. Soon their various criminal enterprises overtake everyone’s lives with disastrous results. Once the smoke clears, the question remains of who will survive. Passions run high, so do old and new resentments—and old and new loves.

Karyn Gerrard was born and raised in the Maritime Provinces of Eastern Canada, and thrilled to have just recently moved home! When she’s not cheering on the Red Sox or travelling in the summer with her teacher husband, she writes, reads romance, and drinks copious amounts of Earl Grey tea.

 A multi-published author, she loves to write sensual historical and contemporaries. Tortured heroes are an absolute must. 

 As long as she can avoid being hit by a runaway moose in her wilderness paradise she assumes everything is golden. Karyn’s been happily married for a long time to her own hero. His encouragement and loving support keeps her moving forward.
