From What The Librarian Did To A Secret Scandal

Once again, trolling databases looking for upcoming historical romance releases for my wiki has netted me more Harlequin librarian goodness.

It all started with What The Librarian Did by Karina Bliss. A Harlequin SuperRomance featuring an academic librarian heroine who falls in love with a rock star with a badass dragon tattoo. Seriously, I should be so lucky. Here in Public Library Land we're lucky most days to see guys with all their teeth, who bathe on a semi-regular basis.

Well yesterday's trolling had me finding this wee lil' gem:

The Librarian's Secret Scandal by Jennifer Morey, Silhouette Romance Suspense, ISBN 9780373276943, $4.99, September 2010.

Since this release is six months out still, naturally I have no clue what it's about. But that won't keep me from wild speculation! Hey, this is a romantic suspense. Whatever could the secret scandal be? Maybe the librarian has people who cross out "bad words" in library books chained up in the boiler room? Maybe she throws rocks at people who talk on their cell phones in libraries? Maybe she breaks out the mad kung fu moves on creepy old guys who look at nubile young thangs on online dating sites using library computers?

Heh - or maybe the scandal involves her buying steamy erotic romances for the library collection?

Of course, now that I think on it - all of those options sound more like public services as opposed to "secret scandals." Ha!

Seriously, how much do I love Harlequin? Let me count the ways! And are librarian heroines the new black?

Side note: Dear Author is giving away print and digital copies of What The Librarian Did. If you haven't read it yet (and want to), why not head on over and try your luck?

That vintage Nympho Librarian cover always makes me giggle. Always think it should have been the cover for In Too Deep! LOL

Great stuff!
I have What the Librarian Did so I won't try to win a copy. I am going to start it as soon as I finish the Julie Garwood historical I am reading.

Maybe she works at The Library> in Vegas.

How come there's no romance novels about library clerks? Some guy heroically comes to the rescue of a clerk being yelled at over a 25 cent fine, then asks her the most annoying question a clerk can be asked, "Where are the tax forms?" Yeah, he's one of those dudes who hates reading and only comes into the library during tax season!
