Ransom Falconer, Duke of Damerell, is sent to see if Merlin Lambourne, the famous inventor, has created a truly magnificent innovation that can be used in the war against Napoleon. What Ransom doesn''t realize is that Merlin is a woman, and not everyone wants to see her invention become a reality? With dreams of flight? Merlin Lambourne is a brilliant yet slightly eccentric scientist whose dream is to build a flying machine.
