Some think librarians are stuffy, narrow-minded prudes-but that's not true of Kathryn St. John. She runs Egret Point's library and is very involved in her community, even down to keeping them up with the latest trends. One major trend she turned the local ladies on to is the interactive network The Channel. It's there that Kathryn extends her occupational passions into the bedroom by playing out her favorite pieces of medieval English literature. Kathryn is quite satisfied with the princes, musketeers, and highwaymen her personas seduce in The Channel. But her seductions spill out into the real world and reach Timothy Blair, new to Egret Point. He wants to satiate both of their desires, but how can he possibly compete with fantasy lovers? That is unless he can create a wicked plot twist that even Kathryn couldn't think up in her wildest dreams...

In Small's so-so latest installment to the Pleasures series (after Dangerous Pleasures), small town librarian Kathryn St. John is approaching 50, happy to be single, and totally satisfied about her addiction to "the Channel," a secret interactive porn cable channel run by Lucifer Nichols--yes, that Lucifer, played as a devious media executive who would love to snare the sexy cougar's soul. But as hot as her Channel sessions are, they begin to pale in comparison to the real-life charms of New York transplant Timothy Blair. As they get to know one another, their sweet romance threatens Lucifer's plans for Kathryn. Small fulfills expectations to a point--there's a ton of sex, some hot, some a touch weird--but Lucifer is surprisingly muted, and Timothy's a bit too vanilla. (Aug.)
