Public scandal and private tragedy force sexually curious Veronica Cooper into an unwanted marriage with Talbot Bowdoin, an urbane and isolated gentleman about whom she knows nothing.
Talbot insists that it’s kept that way. Though the eccentric publisher fell in love with the “free-love” author at first word and would give her the world gladly, fearing societal repercussions, he withholds the truth about himself. A voyeur of the first water, a bisexual by experience and a romantic by nature, he is more comfortable with his steam-powered automatons than he is with people, and so he keeps 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 conjugal neglect.
To satisfy his beautiful...and assertive...bride, Talbot touches another human being for the first time in years and allows her the sexual freedom she craves, including dressing in male attire as well as exposing her to steam-powered toys...and the gazes of other men.
Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM theme and elements (domination/submission, spanking) dubious consent, exhibitionism, voyeurism.
I love reading about brave women who walk their own destiny. How fantastic was it that Veronica proved to be a great erotica author and found the man to dominate her and come to care for her.
I worried at the beginning finding love might prove too much for Talbot when he was used to loving objects and inventions instead of hot blooded flesh. The two fit together perfectly and told a great story of finding balance in the lifestyle.
