Thank you for stopping by. I write under two names and am the author of 15 historical romances laced with mystery and suspense.

In May, 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!



Latest Release

Here it is, the final book in the Daughters of Sin series

Lady Unveiled – The Cuckold Conspiracy

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!)
