Captivating Captains and a cavalry trooper

I have news!

The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper, a novel co-written by Catherine Curzon and me, will be published by Pride on 3rd April 2018. We’re both really excited about the novel and can’t wait for you to meet Captain Thorne and Trooper Woodvine. You’ll be able to pre-order it from 20th February.

And that’s not the only piece of news – The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper is the first novel of our Captivating Captains series for Pride. We have lots of lovely captains, both contemporary and historical, who are waiting for you in a very neat, orderly queue where they are quite possibly polishing their buttons and admiring themselves in their shiny boots, or looking disheveled and lovely.

The Captain and the Cavalry Trooper

As the Great War tears Europe apart, two men from different worlds find sanctuary in each other’s arms.

Captain Robert Thorne is the fiercest officer in the regiment. Awaiting the command to go to the front, he has no time for simpering, comely lads. That’s until one summer day in 1917 when his dark, flashing eye falls upon the newest recruit at Chateau de Desgravier, a fresh-faced farmer’s boy with little experience of life and a wealth of poetry in his heart.

Trooper Jack Woodvine has a way with strong, difficult stallions, and whispers them to his gentle will. Yet even he has never tamed a creature like Captain Thorne.

With the shadow of the Great War and the scheming of enemies closer to home threatening their fleeting chance at happiness, can the Captain and the Cavalry Trooper make it home safely? More importantly, will they see peacetime together?

The Captivating Captains

Throughout the ages, the image of the stern, unyielding captain, resplendent in his immaculate uniform, has been a staple of fiction. He instills loyalty, devotion and sometimes fear in the hearts of his men, and they’ll follow him anywhere.

It’s time to meet a new generation of captains, who still make their men tremble, but for very different reasons. From the oh-so-proper ballrooms of the Regency to the hellish trenches of World War One, the flashing cutlasses of the Golden Age of pirates to the chilly bunkers of the Cold War, these captains will have you hungry to join their ranks.
