Connor Grant is in search of a lady. Not a bride, but a woman to become a skillful and seductive spy in the service of King James. In addition to being the King’s personal assassin, Connor heads a group of female spies who aid him in his work, women with nothing left to lose.

Ariana Fitzroy is the perfect mark. Destitute, orphaned, and completely alone, she’s missed her chance at an advantageous match at court and cheats at cards to survive. When Connor catches her in the act, he threatens to expose her, unless she joins his elite roster of spies.

She agrees and is whisked away to a deserted Scottish castle to begin her training. Ariana quickly takes to her lessons in seduction, deception, and hand-to-hand combat, but less easy to fight are her feelings of lust toward the ruggedly handsome Connor, feelings she suspects may be reciprocated.

When Connor recruits her help on a mysterious task, the pair must work together to track a dangerous target. But Ariana suspects Connor isn’t telling her everything—not just about the mission, but also about his past. Will the secrets between them threaten their mission? And will they be able to fight their attraction as they wonder who they can trust?

That is, until the day Ashlin Lancester learns she’s not the unassuming spinster she’s pretending to be.

NOW SHE HAS FARTHER TO FALL
After a decade of proving he is nothing like his profligate father, Ash is horrified to have given his heart to a Cyprian. He launches a campaign to prove his attraction is nothing more than a sordid reaction he can’t control. But he soon learns that unlike his father, he can’t find comfort in the arms of just any woman. He needs Celeste. When he takes her as his mistress, he’s still not satisfied, and the many late nights in her arms only make him want more…

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
Heat level: Melt your socks off

Google Play (Android)

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!

Who was your first auto-buy historical romance author?

Madelynne Ellis, after I read her Georgian erotic romance A Gentleman’s Wager.

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…
