Lady Unveiled ~ The Cuckold Conspiracy by Beverley Oakley #Historical #Romantic #Suspense #Regency

Beverley will be awarding a $25 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner, and a boxed set of the first 3 books of the Daughters of Sin series to another randomly drawn winner (US ONLY), both awarded via rafflecopter during the tour.

BLURB
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.

EXCERPT
Araminta stared at the scrap of paper lying on the elegant round table in her private dressing room and feared she was about to be sick. She’d been doing that a lot lately. Being sick, but the occasion now was nothing to do with the nausea that had plagued her each morning with regular monotony and which she dreaded might be her worst nightmare: another child. Lord Debenham’s child. She contoured her slender waist and closed her eyes, reflecting on how recently she’d got her body back. The body that drove men wild. She hadn’t intended ever to become pregnant again.

Then she did another turn about the room, her hands clenched into fists, before returning to stare once more at the note. Perhaps she’d been mistaken in the way she’d read it first time.

“Lady D. Your husband wants to know what’s happened to the ruby and diamond necklace. Shall I tell him or would you like to make a donation for my silence? Meet me at 5 o’clock inside the Western gate, Highgate Cemetery, with five hundred pounds.”

Araminta gripped the table, afraid she was going to faint. Who knew the story of the necklace?

Kitty La Bijou, of course.

A gust of wind down the chimney stirred the letter at the same time as a thought speared Araminta’s mind. Who else knew? Why, the awful woman to whom Miss La Bijou had taken Araminta when she was giving birth.

One of them must have sent the blackmail note.

AUTHOR Bio and Links
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.
