Elin Gregory lives in South Wales and works in a museum in a castle built on the edge of a Roman fort! She reckons that's a pretty cool job. It certainly provides more than enough inspiration for her writing. "The button from a military jacket found in an orchard, a 16th century Venetian coin found between the cobbles of a Welsh street, a carnelian from a Roman signet ring - one can't handle them without wondering who lost them, how much they regretted it and what kind of disaster was sparked off by the loss."
Elin always has new works on the go and she is currently finishing a novel set in 6th century AD England and contemplating one about the British Secret Service between the two World Wars. Any excuse to buy more books!On A Lee Shore won a 2013 Rainbow Award as Best LGBT Historical.

"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?
