Publisher's Description

When love simmers between a reclusive scientist and a wealthy debutante, will they abandon ship or is it full steam ahead?


Nicole Renard returns home to Galveston, Texas, to find her father deathly ill. Though she loves him, Nicole's father has always focused on what she's not. Not male. Not married. Not able to run Renard Shipping.

Vowing to find a suitable husband to give her father the heir he desires before it's too late, Nicole sets out with the Renard family's greatest treasure as her dowry: the highly coveted Lafitte Dagger. But her father's rivals come after the dagger, forcing a change in Nicole's plans.

After a boiler explosion aboard the Louisiana nearly took his life, Darius Thornton has been a man obsessed. He will do anything to stop even one more steamship disaster. Even if it means letting a female secretary into his secluded world.

Nicole is determined not to let her odd employer scare her off with his explosive experiments, yet when respect and mutual attraction grow between them, a new fear arises. How can she acquire an heir for her father when her heart belongs to another? And when her father's rivals discover her hiding place, will she have to choose between that love and her family's legacy?

    Full Steam Ahead is another incredible book by Karen Witemeyer. I have enjoyed all the books from start to finish I have read by Karen. This book concerns Nicole and Darius. Nicole is trying to marry and produce an heir per her father's wishes. Darius left his family because he felt unworthily of their love. I enjoyed the humor between the two and the developing romance.

    I highly recommend this book!

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Full Steam Ahead by Karen Witemeyer is a wonderful Historical Christian Romance. Once again, I am blown away by the amazing writing abilities of Ms. Witemeyer....by yet another amazing story!

    This story was well written, with interesting characters. I really loved how the characters have so much in common, but it takes a bit of time for them to become aware of it...you are going to have to read this book to find out more! I really loved Nicole's sassy nature and was really drawn in by her character. Darius really touched my heart, his pain was understandable and his character was so well developed. The strong faith message is something I always love about Ms. Witemeyer's books!

    If you are looking for a book that is filled with action,danger,raw emotions, along with forgiveness, joy, humor and excitement...this is the book for you! You will not be disappointed!

    I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially those who enjoy historical romance, with wonderful characters.

    I was given this book in exchange for my honest review by bookfun.org.

    Full Steam Ahead

    By Karen Witemeyer

    When Nicole Renard is summoned home because of her father's declining health she little realized the danger she was returning home to. Danger that would quickly send her on a mission - a mission to secure a husband that would protect her family's legacy. But when her enemies cause her plans to change Nicole must rely on her intelligence and quick wits to fulfill her promise to her family.

    But she never expected to have to seek employment with a reclusive madman. But Darius Thornton is not a madman but rather a man obsessed. And Darius's obsession is the unpredictable and dangerous nature of steam engine boilers.

    Full Steam Ahead is a diverting story - great if you want to pass time in a quiet activity. Nicole and Darius are both stubborn in their own way. But this very stubbornness could be what draws them together and it could also increase the danger that they are facing. But both have regrets that is the drive behind their motivations - regrets that they must overcome to find true happiness and love.

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher through BookFun/TBCN in exchange for my honest review.

    I read this book in 24 hours - I didn't want to put it down!

    What a delightful book! This is the first I've read from Ms. Witemeyer. It's good to get to know another fabulous writer of Historical Christian Romance. I'm a fan!

    I was caught up right from the beginning of the book. Learning about Darius and the fatal steamboat accident of 1849 quickly brings you deeply into the story. It was then a pleasure to get to know Nicole and her family. Brought together from entirely different agendas and both from highly successful shipping families, they had a lot in common, but it took quite some time for them to discover that about each other. The author brings each and every character to life perfectly. The lessons and Christian values throughout the book wonderfully support the story. This is an incredibly interesting tale of some depth as well as a very satisfying romance. And it's full of heart stopping danger. I read this book in 24 hours - I didn't want to put it down! Now I'm hoping there will be a second book, and I'll be first in line to read it.

    I received this book from Heidi Reads blog and this is my honest review.
