by Beverley Oakley
The Beautiful, Brazen Brightwells Series, book 1
Rake’s Honour is a light-hearted Regency romp laced with intrigue and dirty double-dealing. “Fun and Perverse” and a “Steamy page-turner” are some of the review headings. It was great fun to write, also.
It’s about a gentleman rogue, a proper yet passionate Miss, strict society rules and illicit, steamy trysts as spirited debutante Fanny Brightwell gambles upon marriage to the man of her dreams.
When a jealous contender for her affections upsets her best laid plans, its time for Fanny to up the ante and ensure that everyone gets what they deserve.

Praise for Rogues Honor
Reviewer: Dolce Amore – 5 Stars
“What a splendid book! I loved every moment of it. Ms. Beverley Oakley created an original and amazing plot. She keeps our attention through the whole book. And the characters… what can I say? Outstanding! I loved Mis Fanny and adore Lord Fenton. I enjoyed with their misunderstanding and I was delighted by their torrid and passionate meetings. And the end… made me burst out laughing. It rocks!
5 stars for her and I can hardly wait to read her new release… Ms. Beverley Oakley, I’m not above begging for more! I expect I won’t have to wait too much longer for it, you are now one of my favorite writers.”

“…The characters in Rake’s Honour, a Regency romance, leap off the page and into the reader’s heart….Ms. Oakley brings the setting and time period to life without lengthy descriptions of society’s strict rules. The sex, oh my goodness, the sex is hot and in unusual settings as Fenton and Fanny must hide what they are up to from the eyes of judgmental society.
Supporting characters like Fanny’s younger sister and her friend and confidante, Lord Quamby, bring added life to a lush story. The pacing is just perfect, keeping you in your chair reading right through to the end. The “mamas” are ever present, placing demands on their children to marry well for family’s sake. In the end, Rake’s Honour is about satisfying society’s demands while still finding ways to remain true to oneself and one’s heart. For these reasons, Rake’s Honour earns an honored spot on my re-read stack.”
