Naughty Librarian

What the Librarian Did coverWhat the Librarian Did
Bliss
2010

My oh my! I am dying to know what the librarian “did”!  What shame is she hiding?  Extending computer time to rogue patrons? Did she forget a subfield delimiter? Bun too tight? I am sure the crimes are horrible, like that awful blouse she is wearing.  Good thing that Bad Boy Devin is there “checking her out”.  Good thing for Rachel, after a hard day answering reference questions, un-jamming printers, tossing out crazies, and removing God-knows-what from the book drop, she is probably ready for some hot steamy romance.

Enjoy!

(Don’t give me that look.  Of course I’m giving a sample from the sex section!)

Can our young modern girl find love in her local library?  Our girl Jinny moves through the stacks looking for love in all the wrong places.
