Gay historical romance fiction by Alex Beecroft

Insubordination – This is a free gay historical short story set around the middle of ‘Captain’s Surrender’. Unlike the book, it’s a foray into erotica without a great deal of plot, because you can’t fit a lot of plot into 2,000 words :)

For the sake of their lives and careers, Josh and Peter agreed to put their need for one another behind them. But then a luxurious and sensual dinner together becomes foreplay, leading Josh to an act of insubordination that Captain Peter Kenyon will never forget.

historical, urban fantasy, short story

Communion – This is a free historical urban fantasy story set after the events in The Wages of Sin in which Jasper has to decide what to do about the child in the wall, and Charles has to decide what to do about Jasper.

Two little stories, so short I didn’t think they needed covers:

Valentine’s Day on a Tropical Island – an out-take from ‘Captain’s surrender’, set during those years when Josh and Peter were desperately trying to pretend they weren’t in love.

Christmas 2130 – a short, fluffy Christmas tale with a futuristic setting.

Fancy using any of my book covers for phone wallpaper? Here are the best quality files I have of my covers.

Embarrassed to read the LBR version of ‘Captain’s Surrender’ on the train/your mother’s house/the Bible Belt because of the naked men on the cover?  Print out this alternative cover, and use as a dust jacket.

Click the image to see it at full size, then print this out at 10.8″ by 8″ on A4 paper, then cut off the excess at top and bottom.  There will be a little bit of white left over at each side to fold over in order to hold it on.

Many thanks to Gryphons_Lair for the new corrected file!
Alternatively: Do you love the Samhain Cover, but have a copy of the LBR edition?  Here’s a simple solution – print out this dust cover and put it on top :)

I also loved the new cover of Captain’s Surrender so much that I made computer wallpaper from it:
