Welcome to my website. I write under two names and am the author of more than 13 romances. My Beverley Eikli romantic adventures feature bush pilot heroes navigating dangerous terrain in Colonial Africa (Lesotho and Botswana), while my Beverley Oakley novels are of courtesans and debutantes navigating an often perilous social system in Georgian, Regency and Victorian England. There’s always lots of intrigue, espionage and sibling rivalry thrown into the mix, too.

Ideally, I would choose one time period – and setting – and stick to it. But I can’t. My roots are in Lesotho, Africa; I grew up in Australia, developed a passion for eighteenth and nineteenth century history while working in the UK in my twenties, and then I married a Norwegian pilot I met while I was managing a safari lodge in Botswana and have spent a great deal of time in beautiful Scandinavia, though I’m now based in Melbourne.

Please have a look around my website where you’ll find information about past and future books. Click on any cover to find excerpts, insights and order links. If you’d like to get in touch you can use the contact form or sign-up to receive my newsletter. I publish it sporadically but there’ll always be a giveaway, advance reader news and some snippets of what’s happening on the Home Front. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading!


Next Release

I’m excited to tell you that Beyond Rubies, Book 4 in my Daughters of Sin series, went up for pre-order earlier this month.

Essentially, the series revolves around the scandals and intrigue that embroil five sisters – two nobly born, three illegitimate – as they search for love during a competitive London season full of surprises.


Available for pre-order from Amazon here.

When dazzling Kitty La Bijou’s success as an actress is threatened by her jealous half-sister, she has two offers of salvation: a charming rogue who declares he is her destiny and a loyal man of conscience who may be the wickedest of them all.

Dazzling Kitty La Bijou has run away from the village where she was distinguished as its most famous bastard. Now’s she’s on the stage and London’s most celebrated actress.

After becoming embroiled in an affair with passionate and intense Lord Nash, Kitty is convinced he’s the man destined to be her husband.

But is Lord Nash truly her destiny, as foretold by a gypsy fortune-teller? Or can charming, clever Lord Silverton persuade Kitty that a much more exciting future lies with him?

Plunged into a world of traitors and deceit by her half-sister Araminta, Kitty searches for salvation.

Can Lord Silverton extricate her, or is he the wickedest of them all?
