Jennifer Ashley really impressed me with her debut novel Perils of the Heart last November, and continues to do so with her second novel The Pirate Next Door. I am sure the eye-catching novel cover will cause many to pick it up, but the story inside is what is the prize. It is a slightly whimsical romance that finds windowed Lady Alexandra Alastair pondering the list of candidates for hubby number two. She is rather bored with the stodgy ton's offerings, when in pops Grayson Finley and his twelve year old daughter, the new Viscount oh so conveniently next door! 12 years ago, he caused quite a stir by vanishing, and ever since spent that time with the scurvy crew of cutthroats and buccaneers. Now he has returned, with an adorable daughter in tow, to claim his inheritance. But the pirate life has not quite ended, as it follows him to the fancy Mayfair section of Britain threating his very life. Alexandra is not a wimp, a proper lady yes, but not lacking in spine. She falls for Grayson and his daughter, and is determined to fight for her Viscount. It's stylish, fun and with just enough dash and mystery to keep the readers more than intrigued.

In 1810 London, Lady Alexandra Alastair wonders about life¿s ironies. Next door in Mayfair lives Grayson Finley and his twelve year old daughter. Grayson vanished years ago, apparently became a pirate, and now returns to England as a Viscount. Adding to her confusion about the handsome hunk is observing some rough seafaring individuals threatening to hang him if he revealed anything to the Admiralty. In fact after the thugs leave, she rescues him as they did in deed hang him high. Alexandra¿s reward is a kiss.

As Alexandra becomes better acquainted with her new neighbor, she falls in love. She wants to keep both Finleys safe. When Grayson returns her ardent feelings, his enemy James Ardmore has a new pawn to use to destroy him.

Though this regency may seen strange at first with the hero being a pirate turned aristocrat, fans of the sub-genre will highly value the tale. Alexandra is an intrepid character not afraid to go tot to toe with the deadly Ardmore when it comes to protecting hers. Grayson is more of an enigma that fans will want to solve. Though the villain seems out of his element, THE PIRATE NEXT DOOR is an action-packed pleasant ¿high seas¿ London adventure novel.
