Her Gilded Prison: An historical Regency Romance (Daughters of Sin Book 1) Kindle Edition
By Romancing the Book
Most of the historicals I have read over the years involve either young women experiencing love for the first time or finding love after being freed from a miserable marriage through the death of a much older spouse. The plot of this story sounded intriguing because we have Lady Sybil, a lonely forty-something mother of two, and despite being still married, throws caution to the wind and propositions a much younger man. Her Gilded Prison is the tale of her transformation from a dutiful, unhappy wife into a woman who finally experiences love, passion and romance for the first time...
There was one lingering question that remained forefront in my mind the entire time I was reading this story. Is a happily ever after ending even an option for these two? My mind kept churning with possible scenarios and I was very pleasantly surprised with how Ms. Oakley chose to end this story. I look forward to reading more of this author and this series in the future."
From the Author
I believe that everyone is responsible for trying to forge their own happiness, as long as it isn't at the expense of someone else.
Lady Sybil, my heroine in Her Gilded Prison, has grown from a dutiful daughter to a dutiful wife and mother, devoting her life to pleasing her parents, then her husband and finally her two largely unappreciative daughters.
When dashing, rakish Stephen Cranbourne arrives at the family estate, Sybil is horrified to discover he evokes more than just her motherly instincts. And even more horrified by her reaction to his unexpected overtures.

None of the characters are all that likeable, and certainly not enough so for me to be care enough about them to read the rest of the series.
The book starts with the H having sex with his friend's wife in a closet and plotting when he can do it again. Then, once he meets his benefactor's family, is lusting after the wife while planning to marry the oldest daughter. Everyone hates the nephew who is the true heir (who was incorrectly presumed dead). Yet, despite their disdain and thinking he is a bumbling idiot, are happy for the younger daughter to marry him. The oldest daughter is a conniving bitch that intentionally causes her mother heartache and pain and repeatedly calls her pathetic. She throws over the H as soon as the dimwit heir shows back up, but offers to have an affair with him. But the H is already having an affair with her mother by this point. The "happily ever after" is the H & h carrying on an affair with the blessing of her husband because he could never love her and is carrying on his own affair.
While I appreciate an attempt to step away from a typical romance plot line, this was a total fail for me. And the promotion of adultery is a big turn off. Won't be reading the rest of the series.
Stephen her husband's heir comes to visit them In time he and the older Lady Sybil begin an affair. Humphrey learns about it but what can he do he is the cause of it all by his neglect. Will this be a short term romance or will their age not hurt the relationship. I will let you read the book to find out what happens. I have read the next book in the series that was good as well.

The author is very accomplished, much more than can be said for most writers of this genre.
There is one extremely hilarious scene which I enjoyed immensely.
Even if you don't like sexy bits in Romances, just flip over those pages because this writer is definitely worth reading.
It is not a long book, but it is definitely one that is enjoyably different, and I would recommend it.
