Linden Bay Romance is proud to announce the winner of our 2007 Starlight Writing Contest. The contest, which was opened to previously unpublished authors from all over the world, was a pleasure to judge and we wish to thank everyone who entered. In reviewing the full manuscripts of our finalists, we discovered one that stood above the rest: Captain's Surrender, written by Alex Beecroft.
Captain's Surrender a male/male historical novel set in 1779, is a beautifully written tale of forbidden romance between two star crossed lovers who are trying to survive life in the British Navy during the war with the Colonies. It's filled with passion, intrigue, and the kind of compelling heroes that you've come to expect from a Linden Bay Romance novel–two of them, actually.
Alex Beecroft currently lives in Great Britain with her husband and two daughters. Raised in Cheshire, Alex studied English and Philosophy before accepting employment with the Crown Court where she worked for a number of years. Alex will tell you that she's thrilled to be doing what she always wanted to do, living her dream of being a writer, and a soon to be published romance author.
Please join us in congratulating our winner and welcoming Alex Beecroft, author of Captain's Surrender, to the Linden Bay Romance family!
