Published by Elizabeth St. Michel
When love seems impossible, the heart occupies itself however it can. For Rachel Thorne and Anthony Rutland, the thrill of scientific discovery is a suitable substitute. However, love is tenacious and cannot be suppressed for long.
After surviving an attempted rape by a British soldier, Rachel, a self-taught inventor, leaves Colonial Boston for England at the suggestion of her sister-in-law, Abby. There she hopes to shake off the loathsome past and find a love-filled future.
At Abby’s ancestral home, Belvoir Castle, Rachel meets Abby’s brother Anthony, the brilliant but troubled son of a duke. The two bond over their shared fascination with electricity, and sparks fly in more ways than one. However, a dispute with a family employee turns into a dangerous fiasco that threatens to end Anthony and Rachel’s budding romance—and perhaps even their lives.
