When love simmers between a reclusive scientist and a wealthy debutante, will they abandon ship or is it full steam ahead?
I enjoyed the creative setting for this novel. Steamboats exploding and taking people's lives is the main thrust behind Darius Thornton's mission to stop another disaster. It was fun learning about the time of the steam engine and shipping kingdoms. I had no idea exploding boats was a relatively common occurrence. Intriguing ...and deadly.
Nicole wants to save her father's shipping company and provide him with a son-in-law to be his heir. She's determined, brave, and the epitome of a daddy's girl and I appreciated her desire to take care of her aging father. Add in a family dagger, well-coveted by their rival business enemies, and Nicole is on the run for her life and a man who will save not only her family but the dagger.
It's a fun read and won't disappoint Witemeyer fans. It's the story they've come to love and expect and is worthy of a summer night's read.
