Ruth Owen boots up a sexy tale of an emotionally guarded computer whiz and the princess who makes virtual reality come to vivid life. To save Einstein, her company's breakthrough artificial intelligence, Jillian Polanski would do anything . . . even venture into a computer-generated fantasy with the last person she'd like to team up with in this reality. Jillian knows firsthand that Dr. Ian Sinclair's frosty exterior complements a heart of pure steel. But dress the scientist in shining armor and the ice in his veins shows serious signs of melting. Is the heat between them real, or is it just her imagination? Ian Sinclair has learned the hard way not to trust anything that can't be documented, dissected, and double-checked. So why does he enjoy the sight of a woman who keeps causing glitches in his efficiently streamlined life? Entering a synthetic world is risky enough without Jillian there to distract him. But inside their simulated sanctuary, with Jillian playing the part of a too-tempting damsel in distress, Ian starts to give in to a different kind of magic: desire. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Mistletoe and Magic, Claimed, and After the Kiss.
