When Captain Pendleton needs an emergency fiancée, who better to turn to than his male best friend? After all, for Amadeo Orsini, life’s one long, happy drag!

Captain Ambrose ‘Pen’ Pendleton might have distinguished himself on the battlefield at Waterloo but since he’s come home to civvy street, he’s struggled to make his mark.

Amadeo Orsini never made it as a leading man, but as a leading lady he’s the toast of the continental stage. Now Cosima is about to face her most challenging role yet, that of Captain Pendleton’s secret amour.

With the help of a talking theatrical parrot who never forgets his lines, Orsini throws on his best frock, slaps on the rouge and sets out to save Pen from the clutches of Miss Harriet Tarbottom and her scheming parents.

As friendship turns into love, will the captain be able to write a happy ending for himself and Orsini before the curtain falls?

A war hero who fought against Napoleon is still a child when faced with the prospect of disagreeing with his father’s plans for his life! Ambrose longs to be a playwright and his friend, Orsini, has shown a play of his to various people who all agree how good it is. Orsini’s alter-ego, Cosima, has to put on the show of her life to fool Ambrose’s father.

This is the third book in the Captivating Captains series and I do believe this one is now a joint-favourite with book four – The Captain and the Best Man. Set back in 1817 and a world of Theatricals and Balls, it is full of the rich and famous, intrigue, and a dash of mystery. I wouldn’t class this as erotic although there are some steamy moments.

The world-building is clear and concise, detailed enough to give you the important parts without bogging you down with anything unnecessary. The characters themselves, whether they are fair or foul, all play their parts to perfection.

This was a delightful read with the perfect ending, although if I’m honest, I will admit to wanting more – just so I could see if their life together was as idyllic as I have imagined it to be. Absolutely recommended by me.
