Overview

This is a full-length novel of 90,000 words. The Pirate Next Door is a lively take on both the Regency and Pirate genres, with humor, spice, sexy pirates, battles at soirees, and heartwarming romance.

Mayfair, London, 1810: Alexandra Alastair, a respectable young English widow, wonders if she dare add the new viscount who’s moved in next door to her list of potential husbands.

He certainly doesn’t look like the gentlemen on her list—Grayson Finley, Viscount Stoke, is tall and sun-bronzed, muscular and blue-eyed. He wears dress so casual as to be unclothed—long coats, leather breeches, shirts without collar or cravat, and he carries pistols wherever he goes. The men who attend him are just as strange, exotic-looking, even. And the way Grayson smiles at Alexandra whenever they pass in the street—sinful, blood-warming—turns her inside out.

In the middle of the night Alexandra hears shouting coming from the house next door, and the viscount’s life being threatened. She rushes over just in time to save Grayson from being hanged by his greatest enemy, his former best friend.

Thus is Alexandra pulled into the adventures of Grayson Finley, former pirate and terror of the seas. Grayson has made a bargain with the devil (in the form of the pirate hunter, James Ardmore), in order to ensure the safety of his daughter. He’ll do anything to keep her safe, but when Alexandra saves his life, he looks into her eyes the color of water and starts to drown . . .

Book One of the Regency Pirates. Originally published in 2003, revised by the author in 2012. This book earned many top reviews upon its release, including a starred review in Booklist and a nomination for best historical romantic adventure of the year by RT BookReviews.

Editorial Reviews

John Charles Booklist
Ashley begins with a perfect pair of protagonists who are equally matched when it comes to cleverness and courage, adds some wickedly fun secondary characters who occasionally threaten to steal the book, and then mixes in lots of intrigue and some richly sensual love scenes to create a witty and splendidly magical romance. (Starred Review)
Kathe Robin RT Bookreviews
The cast of intriguing characters immediately captivates, from Grayson's outlandish daughter to his high seas rival. Take a deep breath and dive into a memorable, entertaining romantic adventure.

    Pirate Passion

    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!

    Action packed adventure from page one!

    This book starts on page one with action and never sits still. It is a real page turner (or slider? with Nook). It's like every woman's fantasy wrapped up in one book---funny, adventurous and full of romance!

    Enjoyed it but thought it was over too soon!

    Really Wanted to like it more.

    Really wanted to like it more...wanted to settle in for a good pirate series. The back story was mentioned so many times and in remarkably similar phrases that it basically became a character of the story. Too many subplots. I lost track of the characters. And thought the "twist" in the end was only to save the primary villian from coming across as "too" bad since he was the star of the next novel. to be honest, my favorite character was the little girl!

    Wanted to try "Regency" romance genre

    This was a nice, quick read on a cold rainy day.

    I was drawn into the characters, and although I was aware where it was all going to end, I still enjoyed it.

    this book is a gem! great characters, laugh out loud fun, and plenty of twists and turns! Grayson and Alexandra are highly entertaining and well matched, plus the supporting characters are good too. I just bought the other two books in the series and can't wait to see how Capt Ardmore meets his match!
