About the Author

Beverley Oakley was seventeen when she bundled up her first her 500+ page romance and sent it to a publisher. Unfortunately drowning her heroine on the last page was apparently not in line with the expectations of romance readers so Beverley became a journalist.

Twenty-six years later Beverley was delighted to receive her first publishing contract from Robert Hale (UK) for a romance in which she ensured her heroine was saved from drowning in the icy North Sea.

Since 2009 Beverley has written more than thirteen historical romances, mostly set in England during the early nineteenth century. Mystery, intrigue and adventure spill from their pages and if she can pull off a thrilling race to save someone’s honour – or a worthy damsel from the noose – it’s time to celebrate with a good single malt Scotch.

Beverley lives with her husband, two daughters and a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy the size of a pony opposite a picturesque nineteenth century lunatic asylum. She also writes Africa-set adventure-filled romances tarring handsome bush pilot heroes, and historical romances with less steam and more sexual tension, as Beverley Eikli.

Mixed Feelings 3.5* I enjoyed this story though I did feel there were some inconsistencies that were glossed over and unless Sir Aubrey is honest with his new wife as to what happened at the end of the book, their new marriage could easily fall apart (and I must admit that part of the story left me with a nasty taste in my mouth). There is nothing very deep about any of the characters nor their motivations. The only one I got to feel strongly about was Araminta (Hetty’s sister) who is self-centred, self-serving and a thoroughly unpleasant individual. I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book from eBookDiscovery. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The regency love story of the couple was good with a lot of drama which did get a little dangerous. Their love story is gripping. I enjoy reading regency and always expect the snotty bunch, in this case I just did not like that the sisters were played against one another for the affections of the same man, which dominated the plot. I guess it was to be a mystery of who gets the man but the extent of the one-sided rivalry & vindictiveness was too much for me and took away from more one on one romance time the couple could have. I was provided a copy by Candid Book Reviews.

Dangerous Gentlemen by Beverley Oakley is a phenomenal read. Ms Oakley has delivered a story that is well-written and you won't want to put it down. This is a fairly short read, the perfect choice for historical romance lovers that don't have much time for reading. Hetty and Sir Aubrey's story is full of suspense, drama and sizzle when Hetty's sister (you'll love to hate her, I promise) tries to ensnare Sir Aubrey for herself. Hat's off to Ms Oakley for her amazing cast of characters. I enjoyed reading Dangerous Gentlemen and look forward to reading more from Beverley Oakley in the future. Dangerous Gentlemen is book 2 of the Daughters Of Sin Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

What a Regency romp of a romance this was! There was plenty of angst in the story because the hero (Sir Aubrey) was a rogue looking for a beautiful heiress and the heroine (Hettie) was considered by most to be plain, including her family and a mean-spirited favored older sister. There was also a mystery because there were doubts about the reasons for the suicide of Sir Aubrey’s wife and a villain who was trying to find a letter left behind by the suicide victim that would implicate him in her death. I had to laugh at the ridiculous situations Hettie found herself in due to her innocent errors and misplaced kindnesses. Altogether it was an enjoyable Regency romance.
