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, is nearly ready for release.

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


Here’s a bit about it.

Fame. Fortune. And finally a marriage proposal from a handsome viscount!

Kitty La Bijou , London’s celebrated actress, is on the cusp of achieving her greatest ambition when Lady Partington, her secret half-sister, begs a favor that plunges Kitty into a world of treachery and deceit.

​When the honorable nobleman who paved the way for Kitty’s success is embroiled in a plot to discredit him, Kitty has the means to ​clear his name  – if she’s prepared to risk scandal, her reputation and even her impending marriage.

First, she must decide who she loves.

Then, she must decide who to trust.
