Braden, a level-three Shareem, never thought he’d find anything interesting in a library, of all places. That is, until he spies Elisa n’Arell sitting behind a reference desk. She’s lovely, polite, and uses cute words like “mustn’t.”
The trouble is, the pretty librarian is a registered celibate, off-limits, forbidden, especially for the nearly outlawed Shareem. The second problem is, Braden has come into the library to research the problem of getting Shareem off the planet, an activity that could get him arrested and all Shareem killed. He needs the librarian’s help to get into restricted databases, but he can’t tell her why.
Elisa knows good and well that her motives for taking the robes of a celibate were less than pure. When Braden walks into her library, he takes her breath away. He tempts her to put aside her vows for a time and find out what she’s sacrificing. At the same time she’s determined to discover why Braden tricked her into giving him clearance for restricted information, and then was so bent on giving her presents in return.
Elisa asks Braden to teach her, and enters a world of heat and passion she’d never known existed. Too late, Elisa finds that forbidden fruit tastes the best of all . . .
