Nicola Tesla has never needed a man to complete her life. A gifted engineer, she has always had her experiments to keep her company-or she did, before her vile boss stole them. Now she's working at the Archives in New London, where the memories of the dead are stored. But it isn't long before Nicola discovers she's being watched . . . by a most intriguing, sinfully sexy man.
Archivist Emmet Dennison should be busy extracting memories from the dead. Instead he's been asked to keep an eye on the brazen, strikingly beautiful Nicola Tesla. Soon Emmet and Nicola are shaken by an attraction neither of them wants. Yet when a nefarious man takes them hostage, Nicola and Emmet will need to rely on their attraction, and the growing bond between them, to stop a madman hellbent on destroying New London forever...


Excerpt:

Her breathing became labored and stuttered as she let it out. Every inch of her body had grown aware of his presence in a very real way. She could feel the space between them, knew it would take very little movement before they’d connect. He’d be warm. The scent of him would roll over her, making her drunk with want of more.
She should look away, should put some distance between them. Even back at the Company, men and women were rarely left alone together for this length of time. Sexual relations weren’t prohibited, but they more often than not got in the way of productivity. Yes, nothing good would come from this feeling of want building inside her. They couldn’t exactly act upon their desires trapped in a cell where anyone could happen by. No doubt, Thomas would use any hint of a relationship between them to his advantage.
If Emmet shared her sentiment, he didn’t show it. Without having seemingly moved, Nicola found her chest pressed against his. Their arms still remained at their sides, though Emmet had lowered his face so their lips were inches apart.
“Miss Tesla?” The heat from his breath caressed her skin.
She let her eyelids slip down, blinked so slowly she could have been intoxicated. “Nicola. If you’re about to kiss me I would ask that you at least call me by my first name.”
“Nicola.” There was something rough to his voice, his accent thick as it rolled across her name.
