What it’s about:

Nicole and Darius quickly find their feelings have grown where neither of them want Nicole to go find an heir for her father…. and she has to choose between pleasing her father or herself. Or does she?
Full Steam Ahead started off with full steam! Wow! What a prologue! I don’t think I have read one that good… make that GREAT in years! There was no time to settle in and get comfy with this book, it just took off in “full steam”! Full Steam Ahead is an example of WHY I love to read Christian fiction. I don’t think it ever failed to make me laugh or giggle out loud each time I picked it up. I liked that the traditional “book formula” was deviated from but I won’t say anymore with that so I don’t spoil any of it. I loved the strong, intelligent lead female (Nicole) and absolutely adored the quirky male (Darius) lead. I found the actual history behind this book really interesting and fascinating too.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! I highly recommend this book!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I am not obligated to give a good review, all thoughts expressed here are my own.
