Publisher's Summary

When tall, pretty Kelly interviews at Washington D.C.’s premier LGBT-centric lobbying firm, she claims she has a girlfriend. Nothing could be further from the truth; she’s never even kissed a girl. Kelly’s hired. However, a suspicious co-worker keeps inquiring about her girlfriend. To keep her lies straight, Kelly bases her fictional partner on Anna, an aggressive, gorgeous lesbian friend of a friend. But when the firm’s annual Christmas party looms, Kelly’s forced to produce her mysterious girlfriend. The real Anna agrees to be Kelly’s "beard" - her fake date. But at the party, alcohol flows... and Anna’s all over Kelly. Kelly pretends to her office mates that her "girlfriend’s" advances are perfectly normal - even as she feels her resistance to the beautiful woman melting away.
The Beard is a comedy with sexy scenes and some explicit sections.

short but good story - is it worth one credit?

I liked the story its well written and thought and and intense, erotic. But its only 2 hours I had not noticed it was a short when I purchased it. On that basis I would have used the credit for a longer audio book,. but its a good story and well crafted. so rating for its quality rather then value for many.

It was a great light-hearted, and fun "read". Ideal for a short window, when you don't have time to listen to War and Peace and just want to be entertained
