Ms. Cole's debut novel is great and I found it to be a fast and pleasurable read. The chemistry between Nicole and Derek is great and the reaction that they each have to each other was the reason I kept picking this book up rather then doing the things that I should have been doing such as housework or yardwork!
Derek is a troubled soul who is willing to turn his back on his heritage and past. He spends his days trying to forget his responsiblities and drinking. He is also drawn to the sea and the race that will save his shipping interest. Add to that he finds himself drawn to Nicole Lassiter. She is everything that he should stay clear of but is unable to do that.
Nicole also has a love for the sea and when her father is put in jail under false pretences she decides that she will sail in the Circle Race. The Lassiter's need the win as much as Sutherland (Derek) does but fate has other plans and it throws Nicole and Derek back together yet again. Nicole is equally attracted to the dark and brooding Captain and she finds herself wondering what it would be like to call him her own.
This was a strong first time novel and I look forward to her upcoming story which is Grant's (Derek's brother)next. For a great weekend read pick this book up.

London 1856 - Nicole Lassiter, was indeed something of an original - more at home on the deck of a ship in the attire of sailor, than in a dress at the finishing schools her grandmother sent her to in an attempt to turn her into a proper lady. But a deal was a deal and she had, after all, mastered seven out of the nine subjects at the school before she and the school mutually parted company! Now she was searching for her father, Captain Lassiter along the dockside. She just had to convince him to let her take part in the Great Circle race from London to Sydney. This search led to the Mermaid - a place that sailors came to find 'company'. Well she found him and soon she caught her first glimpse of her father's biggest competitor and enemy - Derek Sutherland - rake, drunk - and gloriously handsome and virile. As preparations for the race progressed so did the sabotaging of certain ships. Stumbling upon just such an event - Nicole ended up running for her life right into the arms of Sutherland - or from the frying pan into the fire. For both it would be the beginning of a passionate encounter that would change the course of both their lives. Soon after this fateful meeting, Derek learns that Nicole is his nemesis' daughter and when he inadvertently causes Nicole's father to miss out on the start of the race, Nicole decides to take over the helm in place of her father. Now both are determined to best one another on the high seas where anything could and does happen!
This was a very good debut novel that leaves you with a satisfying end and whets your appetite in setting up the stage for a sequel starring Derek's' brother Grant.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In support of the concept that the "Sun never sets on the English Empire", in 1854 Queen Victoria sponsors the Great Circle Race, a sailing contest open to all nationalities that will start in London and finish in Sydney. Two years later just before the start of the race, Team Lassiter is struck a terrible blow when its captain Jason Lassiter is incarcerated after a tavern brawl in London. However, his daughter Nicole, raised on the sea, takes over as captain.
Derek Sutherland and his crew are amongst the challengers, but he is more desperate to win than most because victory is the only way to save his tottering shipping line. Derek and Nicole are attracted to one another, but neither trusts the other. Nicole believes that he is sabotaging her family's shipping business. Fate intervenes when Nicole's vessel is damaged in a storm and Derek rescues her. As they become lovers in love, they soon have an epiphany that a third party is behind the troubles destroying both their shipping lines.
Victorian England on the high seas is as vivid as can be pictured in this action-packed historical romance. The lead couple is a delight as they brawl, argue, and fight until they realize that they are in love. Though the intrigue subplot and the "disputes" between her father and her beloved add tension, it seems unnecessary as Jason and Nicole have so much baggage to go through anyway. Still readers will enjoy sailing with Kresley Cole at the helm.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book up on a whim and was very pleased. It might seem like the typical clash of 2 strong minded people who eventually fall in love, but there are definitely twists throughout the book. Nicole Lassiter is used to sailing the seas with her father and is preparing to sail the Great Circle Race. Only her father refuses to let her go. Derek Sutherland is the typical brooding male who has lost all hope. Derek and Nicole's father are bitter rivals who go out of there way to spite the other. Thorugh many misunderstandings, Nicole ends up sailing the race alone b/c her father is in jail. Needless to say, Derek follows her and you need to read the book to find out the rest. This book was funny, heartwarming, had good lovescenes, and left room for a sequel with Derek's brother, Grant. Buy the book, you won't regret it.
