NEWS FROM BEVERLEY
Thank you for stopping by. I write under two names and am the author of 15 historical romances laced with mystery and suspense.
Later this year, Diamond Mountain will be released, a sweeping Africa-set romantic adventure featuring a bush pilot navigating dangerous terrain, diamonds and medicine murder. The story owes much to the experiences of my father, who was a District Commissioner in the remote mountain region of Mokhotlong, in land-locked Lesotho during the 1950s and 60s.
For wicked historicals dripping with intrigue, mystery and suspense, my Beverley Oakley novels feature debutantes, widows and the occasional courtesan navigating an often perilous social system in Georgian, Regency and Victorian England.
Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
Here it is, the final book in the Daughters of Sin series
Lady Unveiled – The Cuckold Conspiracy
Yes! Araminta finally gets her comeuppance in Book 5: Lady Unveiled – The Cuckold Conspiracy. She certainly is the character readers love to hate but, no, she doesn’t get run over by a phaeton, as some have suggested they’d like.
More importantly, her brave, loyal and enterprising sisters get the real happy ending they deserve.
In each of the previous books, the respective heroine – one of two nobly born, and two illegitimate sisters – have had to make do with a Happy-for-Now scenario, as has sweet Sybil, the once-lonely and unhappy mother to two of the daughters.
There’s spoilt and vain Araminta – very different from her earnest, plain nobly born sister, Hetty; hard-working governess, Lissa, patiently utilising her skill as an artist behind the scenes to bring down a villain so she and her beloved can marry.
Finally, there’s London’s most celebrated actress, Kitty, desperate to find respectability but choosing love, only to find that her happy-ever-after comes at the expense of someone just as deserving.
In Lady Unveiled, it’s time to give them all what they really deserve, as scandals from the previous books are revisited and unravelled, rivalries are dissected, and scores are settled.
This is the book where good triumphs – for everyone! (Well, everyone who deserves it!)

A rich man’s hobby is a poor girl’s ruin during the years of early photography
It’s 1878 and London’s most beautiful and hard-hearted prostitute, Grace Fortune, is preparing for her next job. She’s the special initiation ‘gift’ procured by a mother in fashionable Mayfair for her son’s twenty-first birthday.
When Grace discovers she is to be servicing the man whose secret she’d guarded at the cost of her once-secure position as a housemaid and whose betrayal has plunged her into this hated life, she wants revenge.

Beverley Oakley presents all five hot historical romances in the Daughters of Sin series.
Four very different sisters compete for love during an exciting London season: a celebrated actress with a heart of gold, a shy yet daring wallflower, and the artistic, illegitimate daughter of a nobleman. Caught up in a high-stakes game of intrigue and deceit orchestrated by their sister, the ton’s reigning beauty, each must play their part to bring a dangerous traitor to justice while finding a man deserving of their love and special talents.
