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 . . ....

    5 stars.Laugh out loud, enriching, intelligent, gorgeous and smoldering read. I adored Jennifer Ashley's Mackenzie series (or what I've read of it anyway), and this little gem is right up there with the Mackenzie boys.

    I don't think I have ever run across an author quite like Jennifer Ashley. If I have, the name isn't coming to mind right now. She has the ability to make each of her series feel totally different from the others. Now, this can be a definite detriment if you love the way she wrote a certain series and go looking to her backlist hoping for other books in the same style... But if you like your authors to keep trying new things and surprising you, it will be a good thing.This book was a very surprising mix of lighthearted and darkness. It was fun and campy and sexy, but then a certain someone would turn around and do something crazy! Woah! I was certainly surprised!I had a lot of fun reading this book. I giggled so much over Alexandra's list. I loved whenever it was brought up because Grayson always got a little silly and territorial over it. I liked that Alexandra was willing to play, but was still serious about her future. She was sensible and didn't forgo asking a question just because the answer may not be something she liked. I loved that she flat out asked him why he wanted to be the highest rated on the list. She didn't just ignore it and then stew and whine over it later. How refreshing!The characters were all so hilarious, and the high jinks they got up to had me laughing out loud. I loved watching Alexandra torture Grayson's crew! It was such a nice way to get revenge. I loved poor Mr. Henderson. He kept doing these things that made you really want to dislike him, but I couldn't. He was just too nice about the whole thing. There was one part where someone runs into a fight stark naked armed with a cutlass. It was in the middle of a soiree! Ladies were fainting left and right as he danced around butt naked. It cracked me up.The only thing that was lacking for me was the beginning part of Alexandra and Grayson's relationship. I just felt like we skipped over the "getting to know you" part. I liked the relationship, but it felt a bit thin. A little more foundation would have been nice. I also found the surprise reveal with a certain character out of the blue. It seemed extremely convenient that all the bad blood would be that character's fault. I still think Grayson was in the wrong in the beginning. He should apologize!Now, on to the villain. This guy was a trip! I couldn't tell if he was insane or not. Or if his people liked him or not. Was he a bad guy? Was this all some elaborate plot where he was just torturing them? He reminded me a bit of Jack Sparrow. That guy had hidden motives everywhere and you couldn't tell if he really liked anyone he hung out with, with the way he seemed to throw them under the bus... That was Ardmore all over. He was the part that seemed so surprising in such a light book. That man did some bad things! He wasn't just full of hot air and bluster, he would jack you up if you crossed him!I'm really interested in seeing Ardmore in the next book. How exactly will the author redeem him? I can't wait to find out!

    Ashley's style has definitely matured since her pirate series. These are fun, implausible and a little bit clunky, but I can't help but give her props for making me believe the characters belong together (although, like Perils of the Heart, I felt like we skipped over some of the 'getting to know you' stage) and keeping me interested in the outcome of the story.No, you're not going to find the same masterful story telling as you'll find in the MacKenzie series, but these are better than a lot of new HRs coming out. And better than some of the most recent offerings of my tried and true faves. Items of note: 1) The hero is blond which is refreshing, 2) the heroine is reminiscent of many of Julie Garwood's leading ladies, 3) I think one of the villains might be set to lead a subsequent book and I'm not sure I can forgive him -- I guess I'll have to read and find out!This is a cute, quick read, and it's one of Ashley's backlist that I snagged for $2.99 for my Kindle. If it doesn't quite reach to the four stars I gave it, it's defintiely a 3.75. :D

    Entertaining and sometimes amusing. Not as wonderful as I expected considering I usually love Jennifer Ashley's books. There was a lot going on in this first book, which is understandable when trying to introduce lots of characters that will feature in the later books. I liked Alexandra, although if she were my friend I'd lock her up for her own good. I never found myself lusting after the hero or the villain. That alone made the book deficient in my opinion. I need to be able to have a hot lusting sessions as I read about the hero/anti-hero. My one biggest complaint - the iTunes ebook covers. They were god-awful! Ugliest damn things I have ever seen. This may have impacted my opinion of the book. Every time I had to look at the cover I cringed. The old adage never judge a book by the cover could have easily been applied here. I could have judged this book by the awful cover and passed it by, missing out on pretty decent entertainment. Glad I moved on passed the cover.

    So sue me. This one gets three stars because the adventure part was great, despite the fact that I thought the heroine was an idiot. And annoying. And such a saint she made me sick. So here's the story. Alexandra Alastair was married once, unhappily. She's thinking of marrying again and has, with the help of a friend, mustered up a list of eligible men who might suit. She's thinking of adding her extremely hot new neighbor, Viscount Stoke, when, through her open window, she hears a man threatening to kill him. She gathers her staff and hastens to the rescue, and thus makes herself a party of interest in the intrigues surrounding Grayson Finley the said viscount. Who was once a pirate.Unfortunately, Grayson has lots of enemies and for various reasons they all find Alexandra fascinating and useful. For some reason they all seem bent on changing her from a respectable widow with a number of highly-placed suitors to being the object of gossip, scorn, and offensive advances from all the wrong people. It's not a bad story but there were many, many moments when I wanted to yell at one or more of the characters, particularly the heroine. Alexandra was ladylike to a TSTL extreme. She's forcibly kissed in a context that could ruin her among her peers. The perpetrator of that kiss approaches her later and claims he's really really sorry, and she politely accepts his apology and permits him to escort her out to meet her coach, only to have him drug her and abduct her. He carries her to his master, the creepy Captain Ardmore (who helps gain the story a star because I hated him more than any villain I've seen in a good long while--which becomes a problem in the next book). Anyway, maybe the reader is supposed to accept that the heroine makes idiotic comments because she was drugged, or maybe finishing school addled whatever brains she had because most of her stupid comments are stupid because of their completely inappropriate politeness. For example she scolds the villain for being rude because he failed to introduce her to his whore (apparently THAT was worse etiquette than abducting her). Bizarrely, he finds her scolding admirable and decides then and there that he just HAS to have her. When his henchman (the one who kissed and then drugged and abducted her) approaches her AGAIN and apologizes AGAIN, she is once again very polite, even to taking tea with him and inviting him to her soiree (tho she does turn down his marriage proposal). Really, just reading this again I want to And believe it or not, it actually gets worse. (view spoiler)[Near the climactic moment, the uber-villain forces her to strip while he and another man watch and then drags her out, naked and in chains, before the crews of three ships so he can use her to taunt Grayson. Even after this she's still finding reasons to absolve this creep and feel sorry for his angst. (hide spoiler)]Still, with all the pirates, admiralty, pirate hunters and other assorted asses and villains skulking about the story, there's some pretty good adventure, which I liked enough to add back in another star, despite the fact that the heroine comes from the shallow end of the gene pool.

    3.5 stars.I love a good pirate book, a bit of swash buckling, scally wagging, kidnapping and romance on the high seas. I wanted all that from this book and only got a bit. Grayson Finley wasn't piratey enough for me. Fair enough, he had reasons for that. But I sort of wanted to see that bad boy in action. This was still a really great romance and I thorougly enjoyed it. In fact I am off to read the next in the series. I believe James Ardamore will give me what I am after. Afterall he is a very bad boy.:D

    Mystery....Intrigue...Conspiracies...Abductions...Romance....Sex......SsssssWASHbuckling!!!Actually, there is a decided lack of swashbuckling. I would have been happy with just a bit more swashbuckling. Not to mention a bit less harping from...damn it, what's her name? Alexandra. Yes, Alexandra is a bit of a nag, and Grayson is a bit of a bore, but that wouldn't be such an issue if this weren't (supposedly) about a pirate. Or, rather, a former pirate. Either way. Yes, Grayson is roguish and charming and irreverent, and Alexandra is a smart-mouthed, "feisty" heroine, but her stubborn desire to cling to all things "proper" had me wanting to stab her in the back of the neck. I guess I don't fully understand this pervasive fantasy about a wicked wild man shaking up some doddering, old-beyond-her-years widow. I don't get it. Are there really so many women out there who feel that most women are proper and reserved and far too sedate? And why would a former pirate be at all attracted to someone like that? I guess the contrasts would be sharp. I suppose. Oh, listen to me babbling on. Honestly, I sound a bit like this book which, did I mention, seemed to take forfuckingever to finish? It's too long. Too long and too dull and I just couldn't bring myself to really care about what happened because I just wanted it to end. That being said...some decent steam, and hey, at least a pretense at pirates. Still, I enjoyed the villain most of all. But then, I think I might be a bit twisted.

    I love Jennifer Ashley's books!Having exhausted the Mackenzie brothers (and, now that I think about it, doesn't that sound like fun?), I've turned to her Regency Pirates trilogy, first published in 2003-2005, which she is in the process of reworking and issuing as ebooks. Right now, The Pirate Next Door is the only one available, but The Pirate Hunter and The Care & Feeding Of Pirates are due out in May and June respectively.So much happens that I won't even attempt a synopsis, but this book is funny, exciting, romantic, and touching. I eagerly await the next two installments.

    "The Pirate Next Door" by Jennifer Ashley is virile, casual new Lord and neighbor Grayson, hanging by the neck, rescued by red-hair unfulfilled widow next-door Alexandra. Pirate enemies Ardmore and youthful Bouchard shoot pistols, abduct innocents. Has the French Louis been taken by Napoleon's spies? Breeches strained by manly parts, and not, explicit sweaty interludes ... and typos: naval p117 for navel (Grayson licks Alexandra's "nautical"?) and make "due" p201 for "do". Yo-ho-ho, too much rum? Fine example of the genre: banter, danger, aristocratic ambience, and hot nights. I'll be looking for more and maybe upgrade this to 5* fan, if other books are as good.

    Meh. This book was cute & fun, but it never hit the high note one usually find in this author's books. I think because the feud/hatred between Finley & Ardmore seemed contrived. The big bad villain of the story was utterly ridiculous. It wasn't believable and made no sense.Like the MacKenzies series better.

    This is just a fun, fast, light read. This is the second Jennifer Ashley book I've read and I'm officially a fan now. This is a much lighter read than The Madness of Lord Ian.The best part of this book is the love between father and daughter, it was very sweet. I thought the ending was kind've convoluted which is why it's three stars instead of four.

    ***3.5***I liked it, it was fun. I mean, pirates, woo! Grayson is awesome. Alexandra, though, I never really warmed up to. She was... too perfect, and it made her feel unreal. She was perfectly naive, a perfect lady. But then in the next instant, she was perfectly fierce, willing to stand naked before villainous pirates and stare them down. She would be perfectly frivolous in one moment (again, exactly what one would expect from a well-respected member of the ton) and then perfectly clever the next moment, easily figuring out a situation that everyone from the government to nefarious pirates were struggling to unravel. She was perfectly beautiful, and also perfectly sweet and big-hearted, and everyone simply adored her. She could swing back and forth between perfectly proper and a perfectly wicked lover multiple times in a short span. A paragon of a woman, and every male character in the book fell at her feet within moments of meeting her. It just was too much. And it did hurt my enjoyment of the book a bit... I was rolling my eyes a couple times. But it was fun, all the same.

    Mrs Alexandra Alastair, granddaughter to a Duke, has been married before. Very unhappily, as her husband was notorious for his many mistresses and adventures outside the marriage bed. She lost her precious baby only a few hours after birth, and is still grieving for that loss. So now she is determined to marry again, and start a family of her own, with a good man. Someone who will really care for her, and not embarrass her. Together with her best friend, she has made a list of eligible bachelors, and has started to check them out. But somehow, her new neighbour has her intrigued. Is he really a pirate as the rumors say? But surely, a Viscount with a daughter could never be a pirate? Even though he doesn’t dress conform the latest fashion, and receives odd visitors who could very well be pirates, he is so very handsome.Then one warm evening, when the windows from her bedroom are opened, she hears a commotion next door; someone is trying to kill her neighbour! And the French King is missing? Alexandra doesn’t hesitate, gathers her big burly but young and very cowardly footman with her, and races to the rescue. And just in the nick of time she manages to save the Viscount from hanging himself. His enemy left him strung up, and he would have slowly suffocated himself that way, with his own servants incapacitated as well. Grayson Finley really was a pirate before he became a Viscount, and he has an adorable little daughter named Maggie, who he didn’t know he had until a few months ago. He has made a bargain with the devil himself, so his little girl, whom he loved on first sight, could be brought up as a young lady should, respectable and with a large fortune behind her. Of course, he has no intention to honor the agreement and sacrifice himself, he wants to see her grow up. But his enemy is cunning and ruthless and not a little bit mad with grief and the need for revenge.Alexandra has no idea she is getting in the middle of a fight between pirates, ending up a pawn between them. Her reputation is at stake here, she doesn’t want to become a mistress, she wants to be a wife, but her lover doesn’t seem to want to marry, and the men she doesn’t want, propose to her en masse. What is a lady to do?I so enjoyed this story. It is so fluently written, and so easy to read, the pages just flew by. It is a light-hearted story, with characters I fell for at once, especially Alexandra, who keeps her head up no matter what happened to her. She is determined to choose a better husband this time, but all goes awry when she falls in love with the pirate next door. A man who shows her passion and freedom and joy. She also loves his little girl, and she longs for one herself. Grayson Finley really was a pirate captain, and he acts as if he still is. It is his way of the highway, he takes whatever he wants, and won’t hear any arguments, or listen to reason. Nothing Alexandra says will sway him, but he does fall for her just as hard. He just has to get his affairs in order first. But to dally with her in the mean time, is just to his liking.And he has to find the French King who has been kidnapped, so the Admiralty will give him and his crew a general pardon for their piratical sins. I so enjoyed all the twists and turns in this novel, how the smart Alexandra figures it all out, and goes for what she wants, to safe the man she loves. There is also a romantic subplot with Alexandra’s former governess, who she wants for Maggie, and one of Grayson’s crew. This book is just fun, it is different, it is very well written, and has some hot love scenes. I enjoyed the story and all the characters. And don’t worry, it is not a typical pirate book on the high seas, the closest to the Ocean this book gets is the mouth of the Thames.9 stars© 2012 Reviews by Aurian Full review on my blog, www.boeklogboek.blogspot.com

    I have read all of the MacKenzie books and they have all been very addictive with great characters, entertaining storyline and all in all good.This one was a bit of a let-down because the whole story seems like a parody of piratey romance. Also, the characters seem very awkwardly put together. We have the very proper and beautiful society-widow Alexandra Alastair who is next door neighbours to the unattached and dashing, possibly a pirate, Lord Stoke/ Capt Grayson Finley and his exotic looking teenage daughter Maggie. Story begins when widow neighbour rescues single-dad neighbour from an unusual situation. Ok...sounds promising here. In gratitude and needing some life-affirming moment, single-dad goes all sexed-up caveman on widow and kisses her like he wants to eat her up whole. As a result, widow loses brain function and succumbs to his charms. Oooops....But she wants a steady man to be her second husband because she's had a shameless philandering husband before (yep...who wouldn't want a safe guy after that). She also wants children. She's got her list of potential husbands with a Duke as a first choice and pirate neighbour hastily added in (Like she knows for a fact that she can definitely get one of those listed guys to marry her for sure). Now hero on the other hand doesn't want to get married for reasons not exactly made clear. But he still wants her and basically treats her as his woman to have sexytimes with but no intention of making her officially his (how selfish). He's pervy and randy and she likes it a lot (This confuses our heroine because she's supposed to be a proper and respectable woman who should find a safe and predictable husband). But then she got herself drugged up on pirate love. To add, almost all the men Alexandra encounters seem to fall in love with her almost immediately. Maybe because she's a beautiful young widow who gives some sage random advice on letting go of hate/is almost an innocent although she was married and bedded before/ throws great society parties and the guys go BOOM! This woman is so awesome i want to marry her. Like whaaaaatt??? And then we have our villains James Ardmore, rival and pirate hunter who's out to get the hero (And who will somehow turn up to not be a villain in the end, no surprises)and a real villain somewhere along the way which is abrupt because it's like the villainy baton is suddenly handed over to this person. We have a side-character romance going on between someone who's close to the hero and someone who's close to the heroine, which would have made a better romance story. We have the Pollyanna-esque Maggie all sunny and cheerful. And then almost everyone in the household falls in love. So i think the story is ok but bordering on corny. It's not so bad that i feel like deleting it from my ibooks collection but i personally think that the characters and the plot could have been better fleshed out because the story reads like it's done in a hurry with a mishmash of characters thrown in for good measure (I expected more from Ms Ashley).Nonetheless, i am moving on to the next book and am hoping that it'll be better.

    3 starsI picked this because I needed pirate romance. It has been a while since my last read on Scandalous Desires.Romance between former-pirate-now-viscount Grayson Finley or Lord Stoke and Mrs. Alexandra Alistair, a widow was pretty quick. She was his next door neighbor and he instantly fell in love with her upon her rescue when his life was at stake. He fell in love with her still throughout the book and he being passionate with her but only his big problem was he didn't tell her his true feelings and that made Alexandra confuse. By the way, the lady was on husband hunting and Finley was one of them in her list of suitors. One thing I found really funny - in one day, she got more than one man swooned over her, confessed his love and wish to marry her. From what I read, yes she's likable but I didn't feel she's really that superb likable.Besides romance, action part was there too. It was merely revolved on vengeance, hatred, battle, and lastly, the truth finally revealed. My best favourite part was the battle between three pirate ships; the Argonaut, Majesty and Bunchard's ship. It wasn't exactly fight scence like the Flying Dutchman and the Pearl in Pirates of Caribbean but well, it felt like it to me.Read on your own peril.More book reviews @ Unstopreadable

    Jennifer Ashley writes beautiful historical romances and when I found out she blended her historical with pirates, I was so interested!  I enjoyed her characters and I loved how Alexandra comes rushing to save her pirate next door, Captain Finley. The plot was a bit slow at times and when the couple gets together for the first time I thought it a bit abrupt. Finley went from saying he wasn't looking for a wife and pushing her away to coming in to rescue her from his arch enemy and then bam!, they are together.  That moment, though delicious and cute, had me pausing and wondering wasn't he just pushing her away and now he isn't fighting the attraction, weird.  Other than that moment, the story was entertaining, though sometimes slow.  She was a great match, character-wise, for Finley, he needed a strong woman. I loved the epilogue, I thought that was just the most perfect ending and it does leave it open for the next one, which I have already picked up to read.  Overall, enjoyable read, just a bit slow in parts, but if you have enjoyed Jennifer Ashley's books in the past than I recommend you picking this one up too at some point.

    Wow, that was a surprise!I really did enjoy this book. I laughed out loud more than a few times and this is enough for me to justify the 4 stars. For a moment there I though omg this is a parody of some sort. The end of the soiree part was so beautiful portrayed and made me roll with laughter. The author has a great grip on portraying the details, makes you picture everything like you were watching a movie, a good old comedy.BTW why not turn this into one? It'll be amazing to see for sure - a truly well made comedy with a touch of smut.The story in itself wasn't impressive and the plot was a bit slow at times, but it was enjoyable. I was also pleasantly surprised by historical parts inserted beautifully into the story. Who doesn't want to read a sexy, crazy and humorous pirate tale from time to time? This was a really fun and fast read. I really liked the characters and Alexandra was a nice change for a heroine, a breath of fresh air.Maybe I'll continue with the series. I am a little torn about finding out what happens with James Ardmore.

    When I got this book, I knew it had good reviews but I wasn't really sure what I expected.But I absolutely loved it! It's romantic, sexy and funny. It's got the suspense and a bit of mystery. I enjoy romances that have humour in them as well (like Julia Quinn's books), for instance I'll just say the scene in the ball with Jacob...read the book and you'll know what I'm talking about, I don't want to ruin anything. It had me howling.I'm very partial to a pirate romance as well, so this book had all the elements for me, and I can't wait to get started on James Ardmore's story in Pirate Hunter's Lady.The only downside of this book is that it kept me up all night because I absolutely had to know what happened, so now I'm really tired. The same will probably happen to you, but it's so worth it :)

    Overall, I did enjoy this read very much. However, there are just too many plot holes and things that did not make sense for me to be able to rate it any higher.As for the characters, I enjoyed them all for the most part, though one them, Ardmore, drove me nuts. I knew previously that he is the focus of book two, but he does some crazy things in this book that annoyed me so much that I don't think I will read the next in the series. I understand that the author wants to make everything he does seem not as bad and redeemable, which he truly did have reason for his behavior, but simply slapping on an "I forgive you" without any "I'm sorry" or any other real actions to show for it doesn't just make everything else disappear.

    I really enjoyed this book. Despite the fact that it's light & the characters are very likable, it has its share of dark and intense as well. I'm very intrigued by the second book in this series because it's James Ardmore's story. If you haven't read this book I don't want to spoil anything, I'll just add that in "The Pirate Next Door" James acts like a villain, sort of anti-hero.

    Some romance novels allude to the past experiences of a rouge gentleman but this one really has them. I enjoyed the ships and cut-throat competition although I thought the plot could have been more imaginative. The matter of fact no-nonsense voice of the woman spoke to me as a strong independent woman. Bibliotherapy: for those hungry for adventure with no thought of acting on it; for those whose mothers are misguided and flighty
