“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 La 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?

    Forget Jack Sparrow Meet La Griffe A pirate to swoon for but not a ladies man His eyes are firmly fixed on other shoresCaptain Christopher Penrose Kit is assigned as a valet to Sir George a British diplomat sailing to the Caribbean Kit has been demoted after losing his ship although not at fault he has to pay penance He boards the Hypatia a merchant ship and sets sail The adventure that is about to await him will turn his world around and make him question his values On the way the ship is attacked by pirates He and Davy a ship's hand are taken as hostage and forced to work on the pirate shipHowever what he discovers and learns is a way of life although on the wrong side of the law is diplomatic and free than he has experienced in the navy All the pirates have their story of misfortune to tell and have chosen this life rather than be condemned for something that they feel is unjust The pirate Captain La Griffe is always in charge but only as long as the crew are happy with him What I liked about this was getting to know about the previous lives of the crew and why they were left with no choice than to become pirates Basically all of them victims of circumstance The plot is intricate and not only do the pirates have to contend with avoiding the navy but also have to deal with another pirate Jago captain of the Garnet After a joint attack and stealing a Spanish vessel laden with treasure the men forget some of their values and are blinded by the riches on the ship Avarice raises its ugly head and forces Jago to behave in an abominable way which goes against many pirates' codex Then the chase is on to right what has been wronged During all of this Kit is in conflict with himself He starts to question the values that he has held dear until now and thought respectful and sees that some things in the navy are sadly lacking The pirates appear to be educated men just trying to survive the best way they know how All the time trying to think how he can escape the Africa along with Davy Not only is Kit in conflict with his conscience but also his feelings He finds himself being ever attracted to La Griffe and then the dam breaks It is a slow build up with Kit denying to himself what he feels and always pulling away However the pirates are in touch with their feelings and as long as no harm is done to anyone are quite happy to live and let live Two crew members Protheroe and Lewis are a couple open about their relationship and no one minds La Griffe makes his advances on Kit and stays persistent until he breaks Kit down and there is no denying the feelings between them This story has many layers and an intricate plot Davy and Kit trying to survive among pirates but also trying not to let go of the values they have been taught Both of them going from resistance to acceptance to understanding for the pirates and their life It is also a book I believe you will either like or you won't depending on your point of view and what you are looking for For me it is a well rounded historical novel with an mm romance theme rather than a mm romance with an historical theme There is an HEA and even La Griffe has one last surprise up his sleeve at the end The romance theme is definitely there for sure but it doesn't over shadow the life that such people led in those daysIt was a hard life aboard such a ship whether navy or pirate and I believe that Elin Gregory for me got the right balance They can't be in the hold cabin or focsle making out every five minutes when you have such a ship to sail watches to organise and sleeping shifts The amount of research the author must have done is incredible all the nautical terms the pirate language and vivid characters makes for a compelling read and throws the reader back to a time of the high seas where life was tough Therefore it was realistic for this period and believable which is a good thing for me at leastOn a personal note what I really loved too was the Cornish family names and places mentioned Being a born and bred Cornish boy myself you can't have a story about pirates and smuggling without having Cornwall in there somewhere When I read the following quote in the book I had to smile as this is something I learnt as a child and every Cornishman knows All in all a thoroughly enjoyable historical novel with an mm romance thrown in I personally couldn't have wished for This book was provided by the author in return for a fair and honest review
