Debutantes, widows and the occasional courtesan test society’s boundaries in Beverley Oakley’s wicked, passionate historical romances dripping with scandal, intrigue and suspense.
In the Scandalous Miss Brightwells series, a pair of irrepressible sisters and their bumbling brother play matchmaker, often with hilarious or unexpected results.

And Fair Cyprians of London is about a group of determined and clever courtesans at a high-class Soho brothel who use their wit and beauty to avenge past betrayals - and who find lasting love along the way.
How can there be a happily ever after? is a question many a reviewer has asked before admitting to being delighted and satisfied by the unexpected plot twists and surprise endings.

Cressida must learn the skills of a courtesan and the cunning of a spy-master to regain her once-devoted husband's affections.
Cressida, Lady Lovett, believes her reluctance in the bedchamber - caused by a brush with death during her last childbirth - has driven her husband into another woman's arms. Desperate to learn the truth behind Lord Lovett’s increasing absences, she follows him to Mrs. Plumb's notorious Salon of Sin, expecting the worst. Instead, Cressida discovers an unlikely ally who equips the innocent young wife with some tricks of the demimondaine's trade and sparks in Cressida a desire to set to rights an old injustice. But when Cressida transforms herself into the vixen of her husband's dreams, she also sets in motion a series of unforeseen consequences. Unless she can unravel a mystery and right the wrongs of the past, she stands to lose more than just her once-adoring husband. What readers are saying...
