Love in the Stacks by Delilah Peters

Hold on to your cardigan! This small-town Christmas is about to get steamy…

The most recent addition to New Bedford’s crack team of small-town librarians is Ben, a mysterious, tight-lipped recluse who prefers cataloging in the basement to interacting with his eccentric coworkers.

Poppy, the intrepid circulation clerk, is content to let him brood alone… at first.

As Christmas Eve approaches, Poppy braves Ben’s prickly demeanor—and the spooky basement stairs—with offerings of hot chocolate and friendship. What she discovers at Ben’s dimly lit desk is an endearing, complicated man who always expresses exactly what he wants.

Or would, if not for the constant interruptions that keep him from touching her.

When an unexpected snowstorm traps the potential lovebirds in the library overnight, Poppy and Ben finally have a chance to explore the energy that crackles between them.

Is it just epic sex? Or is it love in the stacks?

The Dirty Bits from Carina Press give you what you want, when you want it. Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after.

Poppy loves her job. She works with some amazing people. When they get a new person, especially an attractive man, she wants to know more about him. While her coworkers are fine to let him be in the basement, doing his job, Poppy sees something more.

Ben likes his job. He is new to the city but knows his job well and isn't too perturbed by the talking that goes on among the staff about him. He knows that he can be awkward and shy. It's something he's dealt with all his adult life.

When Christmas approaches and the library puts on a holiday gathering, Poppy and Ben have their chance to really talk. However, talking isn't what's on their minds.

These two really steam up the library books and despite the story being short, it's full of steamy scenes. What you lack in length of story, you make up for in the characters' connection. They can't seem to stay away from each other and once they've tasted each other, all bets are off.

This is a super short book which still packs a goodly amount of punch. If you are ready to start thinking about the good bits of Christmas, then this is a good place to start!

We get to meet a number of people who work in a library approaching Christmastime. Two of them are most definitely interested in each other but one, Ben, is new, shy, and works in the basement, and the other, Poppy, is surrounded by "friends" who do not see Ben's appeal. Luckily, they both ignore the notions of others and when snowed in, take full advantage of the chemistry between them.

Perfect lunch break length and just naughty enough to give you a smile on your face before dealing with the reality of the afternoon!

Delilah is, as you might have guessed, a secret pen name. After years of writing rip-your-heart-out women's fiction, Delilah decided it was time to shake things up and write something that was actually... fun. Shhhh! She may never go back...

Raised in a small, frigid town in Upstate New York, she now lives in a small, steamy town in the South with her hero, three wild children, four cats, and snuggle puppy. She likes flawed characters, Octobers, memes, and quiet... and can never get enough of any of them. When she's not writing, she likes to cross-stitch inappropriate sayings in pretty colors.
