Lady Unveiled ~ The Cuckold Conspiracy
(Final in the Daughters of Sin series, book 5)
by Beverley Oakley
GENRE: Historical Romantic Suspense (Regency)
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.
The gentlemen of the ton are about to discover a woman made just for them.
If you enjoy Delilah Marvelle and Liz Carlyle, you’ll love Daughters of Sin, a series that combines sensuous Regency romance with lashings of mystery and intrigue.
EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):
“So you see, Lissa, I can help you, if you’ll only let me.”
Lissa couldn’t get over the hope and enthusiasm on her sister’s face. Back home, Kitty always been the wayward, frivolous younger sister whom Lissa had brushed off as simply not pulling her weight.
Even just a couple of weeks ago she’d bemoaned to Ralph Kitty’s latest appalling transgression. First actress, then mistress to not just one gentleman of the ton, but two!

Kitty’s mouth dropped open. She looked about to sally forth but Lissa went on, “All your life you’ve done exactly what you wanted, Kitty, but how has that benefited anyone? All right, I’ll speak plainly, though you won’t like to hear it. Have you given a thought to mama since you ran away from home and dragged our name through the mud?”

About Beverley Oakley
Beverley was seventeen when she bundled up her first 500+ page romance and sent it to a publisher. Rejection followed swiftly. Drowning one’s heroine on the last page, she was informed, was not in line with the expectations of romance readers.
So Beverley became a journalist.
After a whirlwind romance with a handsome Norwegian bush pilot she met in Botswana, Beverley discovered her “Happy Ever After”, saved her heroine from drowning in her next manuscript and had her first Regency romance published in 2009.
Since then, she’s written more than fifteen sizzling historical romances laced with mystery, intrigue and suspense under the name Beverley Oakley.
She also writes psychological historicals, and Colonial-Africa-set romantic suspense, as Beverley Eikli.
With an inspiring view of a Gothic nineteenth-century insane asylum across the road, Beverley lives north of Melbourne with her gorgeous husband, two lovely daughters and rambunctious Rhodesian Ridgeback, Mombo, named after the Okavango Delta safari lodge where she and her husband met.
She loves it when readers get in touch, and you can find out more on her website: http://www.beverleyoakley.com
