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, pirate 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 . . .
