A regency dandy enjoys a close relationship with the Prince of Wales; when this is eventually withdrawn, he dies in penury

Captain Beau Brummell is characteristically impertinent towards the Prince of Wales and loses his commission as a result.

Brummell takes to heavy criticism of the Prince and his lifestyle; the Prince also comes under fire from his own Prime Minister.

However, wise advice from Brummell intrigues the Prince and a complex, unusual friendship forms between the Regency dandy and the future king.

Reviews

Stodgy historical romance with entertaining patches; the main story is too graceful and conventional to be believed. (Halliwell’s)
