He was hot, she was not I read this book based on the reviews on this site and I don't think it was as fantastic as they are making it out to be.
The storyline itself was predictable and there were few surprises. However, I did fall in love with Captain Sutherland. I liked how he was such a brute, but took good care of Nicole. Nicole, on the other hand, was annoying as hell. She was a spoiled brat and didn't have much regard for anyone's feelings accept her own. I hated how she couldn't trust Sutherland. Even toward the end! It drove me bananas!
This wasn't the best romance I have ever read, but considering it only took me one day to read, I'd recommend it to the average sap. :PExcellent High Seas Adventure I adored this book. The story set amidst the Great Circle race from England to Australia is exciting. I could almost feel the sea spray on my face. It's a sexy and I loved the twists in this story. After finishing it in two days I can't wait to read it again. This will be one I keep. Can't wait to read the next one The Price of Pleasure.What a pleasure indeed!!! I ordered this book after noting all the 5-star reviews it received and I must say, I am in total agreement. This is a truly wonderful book, with enchanting characters, a good story and great sex, all rolled together to make for an exciting, passionate adventure on the high seas. I read this book in one day, as I also couldn't put it down. I look forward to Kresley Cole's next offering. This was definitely a keeper!!!
