Seduced into marriage, Lady Clara Hastings is forced to leave her beloved England for the uncivilized American colonies. As the War for Independence rages, she’s stuck in Redcoat-occupied New York lonely and bored, desperate to return home. But Clara’s brute of a husband won’t relinquish his hold until she’s provided an heir and a spare, an unlikely prospect given his dismissive disregard for their marriage bed.
Captain Samuel Taylor runs his Patriot supply fort efficiently and deftly, obtaining provisions for New York’s rebel forces any way he can, earning the respect of the fort’s soldiers. Adored by the fort’s women, as captain Sam must maintain a reserved exterior. With war outside the ramparts, he can’t afford entanglements, especially with the fairer sex.
Enemies abound, and Clara is kidnapped and held for ransom. When she unexpectedly lands on Sam’s doorstep, Sam must act quickly to secure the fort. A supply station is not meant to harbor prisoners, especially the feisty wife of an enemy general.
In confined proximity, Clara’s beguiling charm and sharp wit stir Sam’s senses, while Sam’s political passion and cultured intelligence provoke and inflame Clara. Sparks fly as ideologies clash…intimacy deepens as secrets are revealed…until Sam and Clara are hostage to their mutual desires.
But Sam’s already negotiated Clara’s release to her husband. And now Clara can’t imagine home without her Patriot captain…
Epic Passion During the American Revolution
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.”
The General’s Wife: An American Revolutionary Tale is a sweeping historical erotic romance set in New York of 1777. This coming-of-age action and adventure tale follows a young woman’s journey as she discovers new desires in rebel arms. Each man she encounters enlightens her to the varieties of love, including that of a man for another man, a man for both men and women, and the excitement of mingling pain with pleasure.
Sexy fun includes: ménage, hot bisexual heroes, anal sex, double penetration, light bondage, voyeurism, a virgin heroine, dubious consent, masturbation.

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 couldn’t put the book down. It was so engrossing, I just had to know what was going to happen next. Kammer is probably the best historical fiction romance author on the planet! So well-written! A must read for steamy romance fans!” — greengirl, five stars on Amazon!
“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!

“Very steamy read. . … hated for the novel to end. Enjoyed the characters…. great author…” — Lissa Williams, five stars on Google Play!
“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 General’s Wife Excerpts
The opening of my favorite scene is up at Wanton Reads!
The rest of my favorite scene was entered in the 2015 Sex Scene Championship!
Read a sexy scene with Annabella (Clara’s maid) and her lover Redmond on Dr. Trina Read’s website! Features the naked cover!
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. Please note: if you attempt to purchase the “naked lady cover” paperback edition on any online retailer (listings are still out there), you will receive the edition with the new cover. If you are at a used bookstore with the “naked lady cover” paperback edition in hand, grab it! It’s a collector’s edition!
The General’s Wife was my 2008 NaNoWriMo novel, hence this edition being the 5th anniversary revised edition.
