Sometimes real life is better than fiction
Small-town librarian Tess Bucek can't help it if her imagination runs wild. Fiction is simply more fun than reality. So when the mysterious Connor Reed wanders into her library she's sure he's up to no good. But it doesn't take long before she discovers Connor has come north to escape the notoriety that accompanied his involvement in a sensational trial.
Now that he's here, Connor sees that Tess will be the perfect person to help him in a matter he prefers to keep quiet -- not easy to do in a town where everyone knows your business.
