There is a feud and the story about a jewel encrusted dagger that makes for interesting reading.
When Nicole takes this dagger and leaves the island to save it, she encounters many hair-raising moments and when she is stranded along the way she meets Darius Thornton, whom many in the town thinks is crazy as he blows up boilers on his property, unkown is the fact that he is a scientist and trying to find ways to perfect the steamship boilers so they wont blow up at wrong times and cause so many deaths.  Nicole needs funds for the rest of her journey so she takes a job with Darius as assistant to earn her way.

  1. Karen Witemeyer always has the cutest book covers doesn't she!
    I've only read one by her - Oh no I've read two!
    Short Straw Bride - which I loved!
    And To Win Her Heart - which was pretty good
