Lady Sybil expects Stephen, her husband's heir, to marry her beautiful eldest daughter, Araminta. But when Sybil and Stephen meet, a forbidden passion erupts between the two in this steamy Regency romance.
Despite proud, fiery Araminta and her shy, plain sister, Hetty, parading their very different charms before him, the young viscount-in-waiting is drawn to the quiet, unassuming Lady Sybil who has been trapped in a loveless marriage for twenty years while her husband spends most of his time with his mistress.
As Stephen introduces Sybil to every pleasure she's been deprived of, duty and passion become a deep and mutual love.
But with the shock arrival of a contender to the estate, Sybil realises that what she's set in motion, initially to save the family inheritance, might have tragic consequences.
Expect the unexpected in this Regency-set 'Dynasty' where true love triumphs in a world of ambition, dynastic rivalries and the pursuit of wealth.
Her Gilded Prison is Book 1 in the Daughters of Sin series, however it can be read as a stand-alone.
Surprises abound in this steamy, suspenseful Regency-set drama where each nobly-born Partington sister will win the husband they truly deserve.
What Readers are Saying:
"Oh my! What a great read. The characters were extraordinary and believable. I couldn't put it down..."
"This is a good story of misalignments and couples trying to make the best of bad situations. Twists and turns abound as this impossible romance blossoms and you really cheer for this couple as things work themselves out."
"It's refreshing to read a Regency that doesn't remind me of others, and I found the heroine to be very relatable. It's also nice to get an older female lead, and I really enjoyed the family dynamics."
"Talk about risqué! Keep the fans close to cool you off. A tale of lust and love that is sure to curl your toes."

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.
