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 toe 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.
