Marrying Christopher (A Hearthfire Romance Book 3) by: Michele Paige Holmes

From Amazon Top 100 Regency Romance author, Michele Paige Holmes, comes MARRYING CHRISTOPHER, a regency romance from the Hearthfire Romance series.

Having seen both his sisters Grace and Helen happily married, Christopher Thatcher is free to pursue his dream of life in America. With adventure in his heart and mind, he boards one of the first steamships set to cross the Atlantic in the record breaking time of only twenty-five days. Within the first two of those, his resolve—to avoid women and the complications they often bring to a man’s life—falters when he meets Marsali Abbott, a young woman with a past even more troubling than his own. Whether from years of habit protecting his sisters, or simply because he feels drawn to Marsali, Christopher chooses to help her and becomes her friend. As the truth about what awaits Marsali in America becomes evident, he is faced with a more difficult choice, one that will impact their lives far beyond four weeks together at sea.

I don't read a lot of historical romances but I really enjoyed this one. Marsali was a girl born in a well to do family. After both her parents die, she gets shipped off to her Aunt and Uncles who treat her like a slave. When she is able to scrape enough money together to escape and sail to America, she thinks she can finally live a better life. Christopher is a man whom has helped raise his sisters most of their lives. After they both marry he is ready for his own freedom. Both Marsali and Christopher are set to sail on the Amanda May to America. Neither expected to form such a quick relationship with one another but they became good friends very quickly. When Christopher learns of Marsali's upcoming job in America he is worried for her. He and the ship Captain come up with a plan to hopefully make things better for her.....This book is full of emotion. It will have you cheering, crying, your heart breaking, and even joyful. I love that it wasn't just a predictable romance and that there were many twists in the story. It was a great one for sure!
