Thank you for stopping by. I write under two names and am the author of 19 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!



New release: Devil’s Run (Scandalous Miss Brightwell series)

A rigged horse race and a marriage offer riding on the outcome. When Miss Eliza Montrose unexpectedly becomes legal owner of the horse tipped to win the East Anglia Cup, her future is finally in her hands—but at what cost?

George Bramley, nephew to the Earl of Quamby, will wager anything. Even his future bride.

Miss Eliza Montrose will accept any wager to be reunited with the child she was forced to relinquish after an indiscretion — even if it means marrying a man she doesn’t love.

But when the handsome and charming Rufus Patmore buys a horse from her betrothed, George Bramley, whose household her son visits from the foundling home, her heart is captured and the outcome of the wager is suddenly fraught with peril.

**This is book 3 in the Scandalous Miss Brightwells series, though it can be read as a stand-alone.

Book 1: Rake’s Honour
Book 2: Rogue’s Kiss
Book 3: Devil’s Run
