We’re gifted with this extraordinary sequel to THE CAPTAIN—the Sutherland’s first adventure and a 2003 RT Reviewer’s Choice Award winner. Stories as wonderful as these don’t come along often enough in a reader’s life, so buy them and savor each and every word. The Sutherland brothers are rare treasures.

“What a fabulous read! Ms. Cole has created a cast of characters that are fun and believable, and the plot to complement them. For a steamy read on the beach, I highly recommend this book.”—Karen Larsen, Scribesworld, Five Stars, Reviewers’ Choice Award Winner
“You will love this highly sensual romantic adventure as the sexual tension builds with every day Grant and Tori are together. The characters are marvelous and Ms. Cole’s voice is just as fresh and exciting in this book about the Sutherland family as was her debut book. I’m hoping the sexy Ian, a cousin, will have his book next. All I know is I’m falling in love with this dynamic family.
Do not miss this fascinating author who opens up a whole new world of fabulous characters to charm and entertain you to the max.”—Suzanne Coleburn, Reader To Reader
“THE PRICE is fantastic! In my opinion, there is absolutely nothing better than a romantic adventure set on the high seas and author Kresley Cole delivers a keeper! A passionate couple, featuring a complex hero and determined heroine, lead a well-crafted cast of characters through the engaging narrative, leaving the reader voraciously turning pages until the very end. Though THE PRICE is the follow-up to Ms. Cole’s debut THE CAPTAIN, Grant and Tori’s story easily stands on its own.
With a captivating brand of passion all her own, Kresley Cole is destined to be a star of this genre! To say that I can’t wait for more is, of course, an understatement. Fortunately, readers won’t have long to wait: look for IF YOU DARE, the first installment of the MacCarrick Brothers series to hit store shelves in May 2005.”—Reviewed by Melissa Fowler, The Romance Readers Connection
“The Sutherland adventure this time around is one of the best historical romances I have ever read. Grant is the epitome of all heroes — a rare breed of man…. Ms. Cole pens this story with precision, excitement, passion and fire. A year ago, I relished this new author’s debut, and this time I am savoring this awesome sequel and left greatly anticipating her next book. Readers will want to pay anything for THE PRICE; it is very much worth it and so much more. Simply…outstanding!”—Tracey West, Road to Romance
“It is hard to believe that THE PRICE only Ms. Cole’s second romance. I think it safe to assume she has a long, successful future ahead of her. I strongly urge readers to become familiar with this talented new author; read THE PRICE today.”—Sandra Brill, Romance Reviews Today
I’ll say one thing for THE PRICE, it sure starts out with a bang! With a unique and original beginning, once I started reading it didn’t take long for me to realize I was in for one enticing, spicy and fast-paced treat….

“What a captivating story! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of THE PRICE. It wasn’t easy to leave straight-laced, gorgeous Grant and resourceful, strong-willed Tori behind when I turned the last page. There are detailed settings from the South Pacific to Cape Town to England, and secondary characters that fill out the story beautifully. THE PRICE follows THE CAPTAIN. I hope there’s another sequel in the works!”—Alane Coppinger, Romance Junkies

THE PRICE is only Kresley Cole’s second novel, but she writes like a master! This is a fantastic historical romance, and the characters are one of a kind. Grant and Victoria will weave their way into your heart, and you will wish the story didn’t have to end. I was fascinated by Victoria’s survival skills, and I loved the sizzling attraction between her and Grant. I couldn’t ask for a more enjoyable and well-written novel than THE PRICE.”—B.J. Deese, Romance Junkies
“Kresley Cole continues to enthrall with her second historical, THE PRICE (Pocket July 2004). In this fantastic romantic adventure, Captain Grant Sutherland sails to Oceania in 1858 to search for an elderly British earl’s family, who were lost at sea a decade ago. Grant discovers the granddaughter, Victoria Dearbourne, now in her early 20s, and her governess, Camellia Scott, who have been stranded on a remote island for years and learned to successfully fend for themselves. The straight-arrow Captain is both drawn by Tori’s beauty and ingenuity but appalled at her lack of decorum. Grant eventually takes Tori to bed despite the fact he doesn’t think she’ll make a proper English wife. After Grant’s loveless marriage proposal, which Tori declines, he leaves Tori at her ailing grandfather’s estate, Belmont Court, but has no idea of their impoverished circumstances. Will Grant come to his senses and recognize his feelings for Tori as true love?
Kresley Cole is fast proving herself the Mistress of Romantic Adventure with thrilling fast-paced plots, winning characters and highly sensual love stories! THE PRICE is an extremely pleasurable read! In addition, Ms. Cole has set herself up brilliantly for another sequel about Grant and Derek Sutherland’s rakish cousin, Ian, who has been taken by a crimp gang. Stay tuned for Kresley Cole’s next terrific tale!”—Patricia Rouse, Rouse’s Romance Readers Groups
