Lady Alexandra Alastair is hunting for her second husband after an unhappy first marriage. The Viscount next door seems a likely candidate, save for his rather unconventional fashion choices, and the fact that she ends up saving his life one evening from what appear to be a band of murderous pirates. In reality, they are pirate hunters, and he himself is a (mostly) ex-pirate, trying to reform to London society for the sake of his young daughter. Alexandra knows she should resist him, for everything about Grayson is rather scandalous. However, that's the appeal. Soon Alexandra is embroiled in the deadly feud between Grayson and his former best friend, James Ardmore. Once they ruled the seas together as friends and pirate Captains, but now they play a dangerous game of cat and mouse, and Alexandra is right in the middle of it. While Grayson tries to protect Alexandra from being hurt by the games he and his cohorts are engaged in, she is trying to unravel the history he and Ardmore share, and perhaps find a way to keep Grayson alive.

In the meantime, all of this pirate business is getting in the way of the very important soiree Alexandra is planning!

I think the best way to describe this book is to imagine a Jane Austen story sprinkled with pirates who really are violent and dangerous, while also being incredibly sexy and redeemable. A generous sprinkle of humor adds just the right touch. Excellently drawn characters really make the story work. I bought this book on a whim, and then stayed up until three in the morning to finish it in one sitting. I am waiting anxiously for the second book (James Ardmore's story), and I sincerely hope the author writes more than the original trilogy. I, for one, would read them all!
