Shy Jane Spyrus loves gadgets. She can build anything B.L.I.S.S. needs in the international organization’s fight against crime-although its agents aren’t exactly lining up at her door. Some of them think her inventions are a little too . . . well, innovative. Like her shrink-wrap prophylactic constraints, or her spray-on truth serum.
Of course, you can’t use wacky inventions to fix all your problems; Jane knows that better than anyone. Her neighbor has been kidnapped, driving that point home. She will have to team up with another human being-and Abel Andretti arrives just in time. He will help Jane find her neighbor, stop a villain, and most of all he will show Jane to love the daylights out of something without batteries.

When Jane had first taken the job at BLISS, she’d worked long hours trying to prove herself. Many of those hours had been in her D & C workroom, but between nights and weekends, just as many had been spent in the workroom she’d created in her apartment. That workroom had eliminated the need for a night nurse for Gran while still allowing Jane to work long hours.
And she still was working long hours, Jane realized. No longer out of a need to impress anyone, but simply because she enjoyed it. Jane had a passion for her work. She hadn’t really felt a need for more of a social life, at least not one that included the emotional messiness of male female relationships. Not consciously, anyway. But as she stood there, looking down at the contents of her briefcase, Jane began to suspect that subconsciously it was a different story. That perhaps she was inwardly yearning for a relationship; possibly emotional, but most definitely sexual.
“Jane?” Ira Manetrue prompted, making her realize that she’d stood there an awfully long time contemplating the possibility that she needed…well..basically that she might need to get laid. Sighing, she shoved these concerns aside and grimly lifted one of the BMML’s out of her briefcase. The restless shuffling and soft murmurs that had begun to fill the room came to an immediate halt. Jane wasn’t surprised, but ignored that as she carried one down to the end of the table to hand over to Y.
“Oh my.” Y turned the item in her hand. “I hesitate to even ask what this is.”
“A microphone,” Dick said with a laugh as Jane returned to her seat and picked up the second BMML. “At least that’s what she appeared to be using it as when I stopped in to remind her about today’s meeting so she wouldn’t be late again.”
Jane ground her teeth together and unconsciously began to twist the vibrator in her hands, turning the base one way and the top the other.
“Mind you,” Dick went on. “Jane said she was testing it so she may have had it at her mouth for another reason entirely.” He waggled his eyebrows then in a suggestive manner.
“This is the BLISS Mini-missile Launcher,” Jane announced sharply to shut the man up, then forced a calmer tone of voice as she continued, “As you can see, it appears to be nothing more than your common everyday vibrator.”
“Are they commonly neon pink, Jane?” Dick asked slyly.
Jane’s fingers tightened on the Vibrator she held, unintentionally flicking the switch to on. It immediately began to vibrate in her hands. Jane gave a start and dropped it. Fortunately, she caught it before it hit the desk. Flushing even further as Dick burst into gales of laughter, Jane tried to shut it off. Unfortunately, in her agitation, she pushed down on the switch instead of flicking it to the off position. Much to her horror, the BMML bucked in her hands as the missile launched.
