Overview

"Give me a reason to let you live..."

Beached after losing his ship and crew, and with England finally at peace, Lt Christopher Penrose will take whatever work he can get. A valet? Why not? Escorting an elderly diplomat to the Leeward Islands seems like an easy job, but when their ship is boarded by pirates, Kit's world is turned upside down. Forced aboard the pirate ship, Kit finds himself juggling his honor with his desire to stay alive among the crew, not to mention the alarming--yet enticing--captain, known as Le Griffe.

Kit has always obeyed the rules, but as the pirates plunder their way across the Caribbean, he finds much to admire in their freedom. He deplores their lawlessness but is drawn to their way of life, and begins to think he might just have found a purpose. Dare he dream of finding love too? Or would loving a pirate take him too far down the road to ruin?

About the Author

Elin Gregory lives in one of the lusher areas of South Wales. Writing has always had to take second place to her work in the local museum and her family but now the kids are grown up it's possible to actually finish her stories.

Historical subjects predominate but she has also written contemporary and historical paranormals, science fiction, crime and a Western. Heroes tend to be hard as nails but capable of tenderness when circumstances allow.

Elin's first published stories appeared in the British Flash and Tea and Crumpet anthologies produced by the UK Meet team. Elin still can't quite believe it. However, there are always new works on the go and she is currently finishing a novel set in 6th century AD England , has started one about the British Secret Service between the two World Wars and has plans for another set just after Dunkirk. Any excuse to buy more books!

Who doesn't love a good pirate story, especially after the likes of Captains Jack Sparrow, John Flint, and Charles Vane have made them popular again? On a Lee Shore is chock full of interesting characters, edge of your seat suspense, all wrapped up in an intriguing story that I just couldn't put down. Watching Kit and Captain La Griffe navigate their situation and new found camaraderie filled me with both hope and dread. But, what would a story be without obstacles, deception, and all the drama that surrounds them? Pretty boring and boring is not a word that belongs anywhere near On a Lee Shore. This is my first Elin Gregory story but it will most definitely not be my last.
