Friday Fiction: My Favorite Cowboy

fav cowboy1

My Favorite Cowboy
Galloway
2011

A Pygmalian Tale for the modern age!

Rough around the edges, Jarred is a cowboy and a rodeo rider. He also seems to have a nice pile of money. Trouble is he knows he just doesn’t have the social skills for super cool socialite Victoria. Jarred knows he has to step up his manly game and get himself nice and fancy. Where does someone go to learn this? The public library of course! (They really do have everything.) Turns out childhood pal Serena went to college, and because she is super smart, she became a librarian. Poor Serena is in a pickle since the library couldn’t pass a levy and she hasn’t had a raise in forever. Serena is behind on some student loans. So for extra cash,  Serena agrees to tutor Jarred on the social graces. Fast forward, the sparks fly. (But I bet you knew that!)

This title has been popular at my library and is a good choice for a romance collection. I am also going to give this author some credit as this is one of the few romances with public librarians that even hint at money struggles for both the institution and the staff.

Friday Fiction: Covert Agent’s Virgin Affair

Covert Agent’s Virgin Affair
Conrad
2010

Again, we have a innocent librarian that is mixing it up with super sexy undercover agent Jake.  Everyone seems to have a big secret. Mary, our innocent librarian is also trying to re-invent herself. Add in some danger, a dead father, criminals and the possibility of promotion to director, if she could just get that master’s degree (see the bottom pages). Of course these two are destined to be together.  Extra points for the cover art NOT featuring our heroine with glasses or hair in a bun.

I just love our continuing theme of innocent librarians getting caught up in adventure, danger, etc.  The best part of these books is the idea that the library is a calm retreat for the brokenhearted.
