On a Lee Shore by Elin Gregory

Amazon Kindle: On a Lee Shore

"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?

This book was written as an affectionate tribute to the pirate movies of the 40s and 50s and the novels of Rafael Sabatini and Jeffrey Farnol. It is dedicated to the original Dread Pirate Roberts, who drank tea, made his crew go to church on Sunday and took 420 ships in 2 years.
