Talbot has every reason to be secretive. Furthermore, the book publisher intends to keep the young lady he wed in the dark about himself. Because the sad truth is -- though he'd give her the world gladly -- he's more comfortable with his inventions than he is with people. He's always kept anyone with a beating heart at arm's length.
Not Veronica. Her heart pounds...with lust...and she refuses to tolerate her standoffish husband's neglect in the bedchamber.
To satisfy his beautiful bride, Talbot touches a human being for the first time in years. He also allows Veronica the sexual freedom she craves.
But will he allow her to love him?
