“Dangerous Gentlemen” is a steamy romance with excitement and secrets between two lovers. Hetty is a reckless debutant who is forever in her sister’s shadow. Readers will come to love and empathize with Hetty as her rash behavior puts her in the arms of Sir Aubrey. Beverley Oakley has created a hero readers will both love and become frustrated over. He may seem to have few morals, but as his secrets are revealed readers will find him kind and vulnerable. The antagonist is revealed at the beginning, but his true motives won’t be revealed until the end, keeping readers on their toes. The excitement and danger leading up to the climax will have readers turning pages long into the night. The ending felt abrupt, and left me feeling as if there were still questions that needed to be answered. However, the ending gives Hetty and Sir Aubrey the life readers will have hoped for, and Oakley does a fantastic job keeping secrets hidden until the last possible moment. Romance fans will find “Dangerous Gentlemen” well worth the read.
Plain and rather shy, Hetty always finds herself in her beautiful sister’s shadow, and when she spots the scandalous Sir Aubrey, Hetty wishes she were beautiful enough to catch his attention. Hetty gets her wish when a misunderstanding leads her into his arms, but her sister also wants Sir Aubrey and isn’t used to not getting her way. Hetty will have to fight for her love when Sir Aubrey realizes who she really is, and she must hope he chooses her over her sister.
Sequel to Her Gilded Prison.
Shy, self-effacing Henrietta knows her place—in her dazzling older sister’s shadow. She’s a little brown peahen to Araminta’s bird of paradise. But when Hetty mistakenly becomes embroiled in the Regency underworld, the innocent debutante finds herself shockingly compromised by the dashing, dangerous Sir Aubrey, the very gentleman her heart desires. And the man Araminta has in her cold, calculating sights.
Branded an enemy of the Crown, bitter over the loss of his wife, Sir Aubrey wants only to lose himself in the warm, willing body of the young “prostitute” Hetty. As he tutors her in the art of lovemaking, Aubrey is pleased to find Hetty not only an ardent student, but a bright, witty and charming companion.
Despite a spoiled Araminta plotting for a marriage offer and a powerful political enemy damaging his reputation, Aubrey may suffer the greatest betrayal at the hands of the little “concubine” who’s managed to breach the stony exterior of his heart.
