This is the BEST historical romance I've read in quite awhile. Most of the ones I've recently read started off great...only to fall flat in the middle and conclude with a disappointing end. "The Captain of All Pleasures" was GREAT! I loved Nicole and Derrek! Every scene scene between them either left me laughing aloud, sighing in pleasure, or blinking back tears.

I truly enjoyed this story and look forward to reading Grant's story in "The Price of Pleasure".

OK. As an avid reader of historical romance, as well as a huge fan of Kresley Cole, this book left me a bit cold. As a first effort, this was a darned good book. If it had been my first Kresley Cole book, I may not have read others. She is a MUCH better writer now, and I think she's much better in her paranormal books than historicals. The language used in dialogue as well as situations in general seem too modern for the times. I guess it can be overlooked in favor of good story, but for me part of what I enjoy about historical romance is how burdened people were by social rules and constraints. How nobody could do or say what they felt. Cole writes as if those rules don't really exist, so it kind of diminishes the point of reading a historical romance. It's more like contemporary romance without electricity.

I can agree with other readers, however, that Cole makes me want to read the next book in the series. She gives a good introduction to Grant and you look forward to reading his story.

Good story, but it kinda went in circles at times. I do like how she set the scene for her next book with the characters in this one.
