At the library, Mrs Tembe is horrified when she discovers that she made an error and booked Robyn Garvey instead - an author of erotic fiction! Mrs Tembe makes it clear to Robyn that she finds her style of writing depraved, and decides to read from Robin Garvey's history book herself. As the audience start to fall asleep, some of them who had come to hear Robyn realise she is sitting at the back, and finally Heston and the audience appeal for Mrs Tembe to let Robyn read instead.
As Robyn reads her novel Enslaved Duchess of Desire, she notices that Mrs Tembe is being drawn into the story and she mischievously decides to fake an asthma attack. While Heston attends, Robyn railroads Mrs Tembe into taking over the reading, much to her embarrassment.
At the end of the reading, the library signs up new members as hoped for, and Heston congratulates Mrs Tembe on her success. Mrs Tembe enquires after Robyn and is furious to discover she had been tricked. Robyn is unrepentant and hands Mrs Tembe a signed copy of her book. Mrs Tembe doesn't know what to do, but then quickly puts it in her bag. At home, she pulls it back out and settles down to read with a small smile on her face.
Elsewhere, when jealousy gets the better of a teenage girl, the happiness and life of her innocent sister is threatened.
