She had never been kissed before, had never known the wonderful sensations of a man’s lips and tongue tasting her own, of his hands clasping her body to press her more fully against his masculine form. It was extraordinarily delightful, but it was ever so wrong.
Her hands flat on his chest, Clara tried to push him away. “Please, my lord, we are not engaged. This cannot be right.”
Seduced Into Marriage
Lady Clara Hastings is forced to leave her beloved England by her wicked husband, the infamous British general Lord Jeremy Strathmore. They arrive upon the shores of the uncivilized American colonies amidst the outbreak of that young nation’s struggle for independence.
Kidnapped And Held For Ransom
Among Strathmore’s enemies is a man Clara secretly desires. As his captive, she learns of her husband’s debauched pleasures and sadistic past, and discovers her own passions and sensual needs.
A Quest For Freedom
In the clutches of patriot fighters, Clara’s beliefs are challenged, her values are threatened, and she is caught up in a battle for her heart in the arms of a handsome American revolutionary.

Recognition for The General’s Wife
The General’s Wife was a finalist for the Georgia Romance Writers 2014 Maggie Award for Excellence!
“…The development of the romance between the leads (not who I was expecting them to be) was strong and well thought out, but what surprised me was [the] quality of the research. …the use of the Hessian officers in the story was quite clever.” — comment by Maggie Award judge.
Reviews for The General’s Wife
“I was engrossed in this historical love story that has great literary merit, plenty of powerfully arousing sex scenes, beautiful characterization, high stakes adventure, and relationships that blossom into both deep passion and moving affection.” — Lana Fox, five stars on Amazon!

“Right from page one I was thoroughly engrossed in the story of The General’s Wife. Although I generally don’t read erotica, the story line itself kept me interested from beginning to end as Clara finds her way during conflict in the American Revolutionary War. Totally riveting, well written and kept the senses alive and asking for more. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Kammer!” — Sherry Ewing, five stars on Amazon!
“This is one of the best erotic books I’ve ever read. You know it’s good when you find yourself just as absorbed by the non-sex parts as by the sex! (I hate it when you just want to flip to the next sex scene–like the author made no real effort at the story.) Make no mistake, though–the sex is super hot. Honestly, I’ve read it again and again and I still love it!!! I’m always like, “Have you read this book? Go read it right now.” Kammer is amazing, and this book RULES.” — Theresa Rogers, five stars on Amazon!

The cover to the 2013 edition of The General’s Wife was subjected to Amazon’s Adult Filter, making the book very difficult for readers to discover. Nudity is not tolerated on America’s foremost retailer of books and ebooks.
With the new cover Amazon has removed the search restrictions so the book now comes up in general product search results.
The General’s Wife was my 2008 NaNoWriMo novel, hence this edition being the 5th anniversary revised edition.
