NEW RELEASE: The Westerman Affair by Regina Kammer @Kammerotica

Today, we have Regina Kammer on the blog, sharing a brand new historical romance release with us!

book coverThe Westerman Affair

After a taste of forbidden passion, Charles Westerman, the most sought-after landscape painter in Victorian England, knows he’s found his muse in Rosamund. Unfortunately, she’s married—to a fellow artist. But Rosamund’s husband encourages the affair—with one condition: Rosamund’s predilection for spanking must be satisfied. Will Charles risk the threat to his reputation to explore passions and proclivities he never knew existed—and discover desires he never knew he had?

Genre: Victorian erotic romance

author photoWhat was the most emotional part about writing this story?

Like Rosamund and Jeremy in The Westerman Affair, my husband and I had a tragedy in our lives after which we decided we would live life to the fullest. We would pursue our dreams as much as we could, given the constraints of economic and familial reality. So many people yearn to live their dreams, but we’ve tried to make it our way of life. In The Westerman Affair, when I read the part where Jeremy relates the story of how he and Rosamund decided to experience “all life had to give,” I still feel that moment in my own life.

Who encouraged you to be an author?

Chris Baty, the founder of National Novel Writing Month. I read an article about him and NaNoWriMo in the University of California, Berkeley alumni magazine (my library science degree is from UC Berkeley) and I decided to take on the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November. I was so inspired that particular November (2006), that I volunteered for the organization that put on NaNoWriMo. A couple of years later, Chris urged me to join the San Francisco Area Chapter of Romance Writers of America. I did and have never looked back!

Born into wealth, Sabine Laurent and her twin sister lived a life of luxury, their father’s prestigious theater frequented by royalty and aristocracy alike. And Sabine dreamed of her own prince charming–the devastatingly handsome Jules de Moutier.

That was before the loss of her sister and her family’s fall from grace–a disaster Sabine blames on the Moutier family. Now, with her father’s death, she’s inherited his sizable debt and the responsibility of caring for his spoiled long-time mistress and her two wastrel daughters. But with the help of Sabine’s eccentric friends–the balance of her father’s acting troupe–she plans to get very close to her old infatuation, seduce the rake–and make away with a fortune.

Resisting Jules’s skillful mouth and tantalizing touch is not as easy as Sabine supposed. And soon she must decide whether her desire for vengeance is greater than her desire for her one and only prince…

Sally Green is about to die.

She sees Death in the streets. She can taste it in her gin. She can feel it in the very walls of the ramshackle brothel where she is kept to satisfy the perversions of the wealthy. She had come to London as a runaway in search of her Cavalier father. Instead, she found Wrath, a sadistic nobleman determined to use her to fulfill a sinister ambition. As the last of her friends are murdered one by one, survival hinges on escape.

Nick Virtue is a tutor with a secret. By night he operates as a highwayman, relieving nobles of their riches to further his brother’s criminal enterprise. It’s a difficult balance at the best of times, and any day that doesn’t end in a noose is a good one. Saving Sally means risking his reputation, and may end up costing him his life.

As a brutal attack throws them together, Sally finds she has been given a second chance. She is torn between the tutor and the highwayman, but she knows she can have neither. Love is an unwanted complication while Wrath haunts the streets. Nick holds the key to Wrath’s identity, and Sally will risk everything to bring him to justice.

Unless the gallows take her first.

Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, is known throughout the ton for three things: the burn scars on his neck, his ornery disposition, and the trail of broken hearts behind him. None of which would concern Miss Elizabeth Lacey in the least—if she weren’t living under his roof. As his grandmother’s companion, Beth is all too concerned with the moody and compelling duke. Incensed by his plans to banish the sweet dowager duchess to the country, Beth refuses to do his bidding. If Alex wants her help, he’s going to have to take her dare…and grant her three wishes.

Alex adores his grandmother, which is precisely why she must leave. A string of unfortunate incidents has him worried for the safety of everyone around him—including the dowager’s loyal and lovely companion, Beth. But the notorious wallflower isn’t as meek as she appears, and as their battle of wills heats up, so does Alex’s desire. He’s dangerously close to falling in love with her…and revealing secrets he’d rather keep hidden. How can he convince her that his darkest days are behind him—and that, for the first time in forever, his heart is true?
