Throwback Thursday: THE CAPTAIN OF ALL PLEASURES by Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is one multi-talented author. Before delving into the paranormal romance genre with her Immortals After Dark series and young adult books with The Arcana Chronicles…and way, way before her erotic romance Game Maker series, Ms. Cole wrote historical romance. First published in 2003, The Captain of All Pleasures (book one of the Sutherland Brothers series) was Ms. Cole’s very first – and might I say, award-winning – novel.

In her exhilarating debut novel, Kresley Cole captures the drama, passion, and boundless adventure of the high seas—as one fiery lass finds herself caught in a tide of torrid romance.

Raised as a free spirit aboard her American sea captain father’s majestic clipper ship, willful Nicole Lassiter has never encountered an obstacle she couldn’t overcome—until she meets Captain Derek Sutherland. His sizzling kisses leave her longing, but after they share a night of passion, his subsequent disdain makes her blood boil. Nicole vows to take her revenge—by helping her father beat Sutherland in a high-stakes competition: the Great Circle Race from England to Australia.

Nicole’s scheme is thrown overboard after her father is wrongly imprisoned, yet she remains undaunted—taking to the high seas with her father’s ship. But a storm wrecks her plans, and she finds herself a virtual prisoner aboard Sutherland’s vessel. And while her mind tells her she should escape, her body urges her to surrender.

I discovered Ms. Cole’s “historical” side before jumping into her paranormal worlds. This novel was fun, adventurous, and romantic and certainly worth its RT Reviewer’s Choice win!

If you haven’t tried Ms. Cole’s historical romances, I urge you to start with this one! 😀

  1. Hi, Rika!

    Kresley Cole is my sister’s favourite author, but she’s never read her historical romances. (She loves her IAD series. ^_^)

    Thank you for joining TBT:HR!

    • I’m a big fan of the IAD series as well, but it was Ms. Cole’s historicals that first got me addicted to her writing. Hopefully, your sister has a chance to try some. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!
