Sample text:

Obviously there was some mistake. The Prince Regent must be going as daft as his poor father. Yes, Captain Jack Dryden decided, that could explain the peculiar summons he had received. The regent was likely dicked in the nob. But since a lowly army captain could ill afford to refuse a royal summons, Jack had been forced to leave important work in Portugal, make a wretched sea voyage, and now found himself in front of the regent's lavishly colonnaded London residence presenting--not without resentment--his papers to one of a pair of Life Guards who stood on either side of the entrance gate.

As the soldier perused the documents, Jack shifted his weight from one foot to the other, eying the other Guard who stood straight as a poker within his three-sided sentry's hut on the opposite side of the gate. At any second Jack expected to be accused of forging the royal seal. But no such occurrence happened.
