Absolute brilliance, this book is about as English as they come, utterly hilarious and with a nod to the beat Sheridan farce.

In the Captain and the Squire, the authors have gone full on gentry eccentricity, with dodgy clauses in wills, dastardly villains and villagers who know everyone's business.

I was howling with laughter throughout most of this.

It also has a surprisingly sweet kinky side which I'll leave to be revealed for other readers as it really does work brilliantly well.

Smart and funny and just plain sexy, Catherine Curzon and Eleanor Harkstead’s standalone novel The Captain and the Squire is a total delight. Sparks fly when a closeted, uptight farmer comes face to face with his nemesis, a self-absorbed, freewheeling city-slicker. It’s clear the authors had a jolly good time writing this one, and they kept me in stitches from beginning to end!

Resigned to his role as a gentleman farmer, and engaged to marry a woman he doesn’t even like, Tarquin faces a

I love, love, love, love this book!! Can I put anymore ‘loves’ in that first sentence? I know, I know, I say the same every single time I read a Captivating Captain book, but I can’t help myself this series is just…..well, I am unable to say, as I think I have used every word that has been listed under amazing in the thesaurus…hmmm, went slightly off subject.
Anyway, Just when I think that this series has peaked and it can’t possibly get any better, and I have found my new love and favourite,

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: Humour, LGBTQIA

Well, I'm late to this series and have only read the previous book. I struggled with that so was hoping this would suit better – and it did. It was timing in last book that was wrong for me. I don't really gel with books where everything takes place over a few days, but this one is longer, still short, just a month except for the epilogue, but
I was gifted my copy of this book, that I write a review was not required.
Chris returns to claim his inheritance, only to discover that a pig holds it hostage. If Chris can't tempt the pig to live with him in one month, he'll lose it all and the pig will be well looked after by the next-door neighbour. The very hot and sexy Squire Tarquin loves that pig, but one look at Chris and he wants him like he never wanted anyone before. But they live in a small village, can they really be together?

This book was about as British as tea and crumpets and strawberries and cream! Such a delight I felt like I was watching Auntie beeb on Sunday prime time. It's no secret I love these Captain novels and Catherine Curzon and Eleanor Harkstead go from strength to strength with each one that I struggle to know which couple is my favourite.

But a little about the story.... slightly different from the other Captain novels, this one is told solely from Tarquin Bough (that's pronounced Boff don't you

The Captain and the Squire is the fifth installment of the Captivating Captains series. Each book is a delightful standalone story.
This book is extremely well written. It is full of humorous banter and witty characters. I admit it took a bit for me to get into the story. It reads very much like an old historical romance. Tarquin, who comes off as a very eccentric character, talks like he belongs in Victorian England. Christopher, the other main character, has come to collect his inheritance but
