Pirates Booty

Author Elizabeth McGill’s idea for staying on Block Island while she works on her next story was both insane and inspiring. Crazy because it was February, and inspiring because her sexy handyman neighbor Lucius was giving her plenty of naughty thoughts to work with. Venturing into to town she run’s into Lucius and after a few drinks they end up kissing attracting too much attention for the other bar patron so they decided to go outside and get some air. Things were going well until she mentioned pirates. Then Lucius got all weird so she called a halt to where ever things between them were going.
Lucius Stone found himself attracted to his neighbor until he found out she was interested in pirates. He’d dealt with enough visiting tourists looking to hook up with him do to his piratical looks. Even though he wasn’t happy about her ideas he couldn’t let her freeze to death. So when a storm rolls in he knows she won’t have heat because the powers out brings her over to his cabin.
Can they get along for the next few days? Will their attraction overcome their differences?
A quick engaging read. Roberts does a good job keeping this tale from being predictable. Her hero is flawed making him more realistic and desirable.
