The Artist
Charles Westerman, Victorian England’s most sought-after landscape painter, is finished with love affairs. Yet after a taste of forbidden passion at a private art exhibition, he knows he’s met his muse in Rosamund. Problem is she’s married. For the sake of his career, Charles simply cannot afford to be distracted by another disastrous entanglement, especially one with a married woman.

The Muse

Art curator Rosamund, Lady Threxton, needs a man to satisfy her predilection for spanking. Her husband, Jeremy, does not relish the role of chastiser and, besides, has his own mistress to please. Jeremy, however, is quite amenable to Rosamund seeking out another. Hired men from her favorite erotic club provide her with only a modicum of relief. The furtive fling with Charles, though, leaves Rosamund certain she’s found her perfect match.

The Arrangement
Rosamund and Jeremy’s marriage is curiously modern for stodgy Victorian society. Together, the couple try to entice Charles into an unusual arrangement. 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?

Reviews for The Westerman Affair

“Bravo! This author is a queen of historical erotica. Ms Kammer’s situations are scandalous, and her characters are cheeky and intense. There are never simple answers to the positions in which they find themselves, and this one is no different in that respect. … This story was wonderfully graphic and extraordinarily brazen, and I loved every minute of it.” — Dawn Yacovetta, 5 stars on Amazon!

“Wonderful story, I couldn’t put it down. I love this story. It is so well-written and edited. Bravo! Makes me think of the early beginnings of D/s. So engaging, you just have to find out what happens next. I’d highly recommend this love story. I look forward to reading more by Kammer.” — greengirl, 5 stars on Amazon!

“Regina Kammer always amazes me. Her books are both hot and have relationships that feel real. I don’t often read books with polyamorous relationships because they often come across as forced and fanciful. This book is neither of those. The characters are solid, act like adults, and enjoy kinky sex. My favorite kind of book!” — Aidee Ladnier, 5 stars on Goodreads!

“Great book. Thoroughly enjoyed it.” — Aspen Gold judge.

Judges’ comments (on the first 7,000 words) from the NOLA STARS Suzannah Contest:
“Great voice, and confident story telling.”
“I can’t wait to read the rest of the story!”
“Whew. I’d like another chapter and a cigarette, please. So, far it’s fantastic. So, flesh out the rest. Pun intended.”
