Description

Claiming Victory is a funny contemporary romantic comedy that will appeal to every woman who still believes fairy tales can come true... ..."So let me get this straight Admiral. Your plan is to somehow get the most famous actor in the world, to fall in love with your daughter Victory, who we both love dearly, but - and please don't take offence Sir - who you yourself admit is built generously across the aft, and whose face is unlikely to launch the Dartmouth ferry, let alone a thousand ships..." Victory Shackleford is a spinster, or at least well on the way to becoming one. She is thirty two years old, still lives with her father - an eccentric retired Admiral, and the love of her life is a dog. She thinks her father is reckless, irresponsible, and totally incapable of looking after himself. He thinks his daughter is a boring nagging harpy with no imagination or sense of adventure and what's more, he's determined to get her married off. Unfortunately there's no one in the picturesque yachting town of Dartmouth that Tory is remotely interested in, despite her father's best efforts. But all that is about to change when she discovers that her madcap father has rented out their house as a location shoot for the biggest blockbuster of the year. As cast and crew descend, Tory's humdrum orderly existence is turned completely upside down, especially as the lead actor has just been voted the sexiest man on the planet... Full of romantic humor, Claiming Victory is a must for fans of funny love stories - especially quirky British Romantic comedies.show more

About Beverley Watts

Beverley and her husband divide their time between a large flat overlooking the sea on the beautiful English Riviera (where it's generally warm and wet) and an officer's cabin on the west coast of Scotland (where it's cold and wet). Between them they have 3 children (2 grown up) and a menagerie of animals including 2 dogs (an Irish terrier called Nelson, plus a neurotic 'Chorkie' named Pepe) and two cats called Dillon and Honey. Beverley spent 8 years teaching English as a Foreign Language to International Military Students in Britannia Royal Naval College which is the premier officer training establishment for the Royal Navy in the UK. She says that in the whole 8 years there was never a dull moment and many of her wonderful experiences at the College were not only memorable but were most definitely 'the stuff of fiction' An avid reader and writer since childhood, she always determined that on leaving she would write a book... Her debut novel, a romantic comedy with the title An Officer And A Gentleman Wanted, was published on Amazon in 2013. She has just completed her second novel, another very funny rom com titled Claiming Victory, available as of December 2014.
