His life in the theatre had prepared him for the love of his life.

Orphaned in infancy and raised by the great comedy actress Dorothy Jordan, Sim Treagar has lived all his nineteen years among the high drama, greasepaint and shabby theatrical glamour of the Drury Lane Theatre.

When Lieutenant Gervase Levison comes to the theatre to deliver the Royal Duke's congé to Sim's adoptive mother, the two men fall immediately into a passionate love affair.

But Gervase's powerful family oppose their love and seek to use it against the Lieutenant, in a high-stakes game of rumours, scandal and thwarted inheritances. When Gervase is sent to sea, his prospects are safe but Sim's heart is broken. Can they ever hope to be reunited in a love his handsome sailor's family can't countenance?

About the author
 Click to toggle


Caleb was born and bred in Queensland, Australia. He started out his working career as an architect but left that job to join a ballet company as a costumier. Along with a taste for the novels of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, costuming has become the consuming passion of his life.

He took up writing because of the ol' I-can-write-better-than-that syndrome and tries to combine writing with his love of period costuming, attempting stories in the Gay Regency Romance genre. Child of the Theatre is his first published work.
