Vivian Kirby knows only too well the challenges a woman in Victorian society faces—especially if the woman has interests outside of ballrooms and marriage. Vivian is blessed (or cursed) with a scientific mind and an insatiable curiosity, which leads her to take apart, reassemble and invent the most ingenious of things. Unfortunately, society doesn’t appreciate her gift.

Louisa has her eye on Phineas Hawke, the Viscount of Barrington, until she overhears him insulting her at a Ball. His insult hits a little too close to home, disclosing a secret she has been too ashamed to admit to even her closest family. Since then, she has loathed the man, making her feelings abundantly clear to him and everyone else. He, in turn, teases her relentlessly.
