Publisher's summary

From the USA Today bestselling author of Boyfriend Material comes a riotous Regency romp full of art, expensive hats, and a love that is nothing short of spectacular.

Peggy Delancey’s not at all ready to move on from her former flame, Arabella Tarleton. But Belle has her own plans for a love match, and she needs Peggy’s help to make those plans a reality. Still hung up on her feelings and unable to deny Belle what she wants, Peggy reluctantly agrees to help her woo the famous and flamboyant opera singer Orfeo.

She certainly doesn’t expect to find common ground with a celebrated soprano, but when Peggy and Orfeo meet, a whole new flame is ignited that she can’t ignore. Peggy finds an immediate kinship with Orfeo, who’s just as nonconforming as she is—and just as affected by their instant connection.

They’ve never been able to find their place in the world, but as the pair walks the line between friendship, flirtation, and something more, they may just find their place with each other.

Critic reviews

“Robyn Holdaway's delightful performance shines throughout the second installment of this queer Regency-era romance series.… Holdaway's thoughtful portrayals enliven a range of personalities across social classes.… Listeners hear Peggy's and Orfeo's roiling emotions as the couple explores their relationship. Entertaining and affirming, this audiobook delivers healthy doses of cheeky humor and steamy encounters. Holdaway captivates from start to finish.” AudioFile Magazine

“Of particular appeal to the LGBTQ community, narrator Robyn Holdaway's storytelling skills are perfectly suited to bringing Something Spectacular to life in an extended 'theatre of the mind' experience from start to finish.” Midwest Book Review

“Hall is explicitly claiming and making space in the historical romance subgenre for queer people to be main characters on their own terms. Peggy and Orfeo’s tender friendship and romance shows that queer people do not need to justify or explain their presence or identities to find love and that love, in some form or fashion, is for everyone.” Kirkus Reviews
