Imperial Warriors: Two Scorching Tales of the Roman Empire

3

Ancient Warriors...
Muscles flexing under sun-burnished skin as thick arms wield swords, battle axes, or bow and arrow. Brawny, fierce, and intensely loyal to their cause, king, or god. Alpha heroes romanticized through the lens of history.

...of the Roman Empire
Legions marching under the banner of Rome for centuries, conquering the Mediterranean and beyond, from Britannia in the West to Anatolia in the East.

Imperial Warriors: Two Scorching Tales of the Roman Empire offers two sizzling tales of romance between warriors and the women who are inexorably drawn to them. Each story is set during a different time and place in the Roman Empire: Trajanic Rome and Byzantine Constantinople.

The Promise of Memory
A slave in Rome’s imperial palace finds freedom in fantasies of a knight in the imperial guard—a warrior who evokes memories of a long lost love.

Protecting Her
A Byzantine noblewoman seeking refuge in a monastery loses her heart to an invader when Constantinople is sacked by the Viking Rus.

“The Promise of Memory” and “Protecting Her” by best-selling historical romance author Regina Kammer, have been published separately before but are now available together for the first time. This mini-anthology includes bonus content from Regina Kammer: an excerpt from the Roman Imperial epic Hadrian and Sabina: A Love Story, an excerpt from the Parthian historical romance short story “An Unexpected Discovery”, plus an introductory essay.

A forbidden encounter leaves her yearning for more…

In Victorian London of 1879, a new device for the treatment of hysteria has just arrived from France. Dr. Julius Christopher plans to use the invention for his own salacious scheme. Can Dr. Nicholas Ramsay prevent his beloved, the virginal debutante Helena Phillips, from being the next patient?

The Doctor and The Debutante
Nicholas Ramsay, renouncing his aristocratic heritage and dark past, has chosen a career as a doctor. He arrives in London ready to embark upon his practice and find a suitable wife.
Helena Phillips, born into scandal and disgrace, is making her London debut. To atone for the circumstances of her birth, she must find a titled husband—no less than an earl will do.

A Dangerous Passion
Nicholas and Helena’s chance encounter during the Season leads to a dangerous attraction—and forbidden explorations. A taste of passion leaves Helena longing for more, and her lovesick wretchedness is confused for hysteria, a mysterious ailment afflicting many Victorian women.

A Devious Scheme
Dr. Julius Christopher’s new electro-mechanical vibrating machine for the treatment of hysteria is the perfect device to test his radical theory of female sexuality. To fully explore his hypothesis, he requires a virgin and seeks to ensnare Helena for his experiment.

Can He Save Her?
Nicholas is determined to rescue Helena from the clutches of Dr. Christopher. But to prove he is worthy of Helena’s hand, Nicholas must reconcile with his past, embrace his future, and show her pleasure is more profound when coupled with love.

The Harwell Heirs
Victorian aristocracy has very strict rules concerning marital connections and familial obligations. But the Harwell heirs—Helena, Sophia, and Arthur—discover love doesn’t always follow the rules. Scandalous affairs force these scions of society to choose between duty and desire, deference and destiny.

Book 3: Where Destiny Plays
A choice between duty and desire…

After a night of passion at Victorian England’s most notorious masquerade, Arthur Harwell knows he’s met the woman of his dreams. A wealthy viscountess with deep political connections, Lavinia is surely the perfect match for the future marquess. But tragedy has left Lavinia unable to provide Arthur with the one thing he needs: an heir. Must Arthur abandon true love to satisfy aristocratic obligations?

A Vow Reconsidered
Ever since a tragedy twenty years ago, Arthur Harwell, the Earl of Petersham, has vowed to never fall in love again—or marry. Yet a passionate encounter with a veiled woman at a masquerade inflames his hopes, and he is determined to find her. When he discovers the stranger is Lavinia, a woman for whom he already carries a torch, he is certain his future is settled.

An Old Wound
Widowed, wealthy, and well-connected, Lavinia, the Viscountess Foxley-Graham, has her pick of lovers, including the far too appealing Lord Petersham. Yet a disastrous affair twenty years prior left her heartbroken and wary. She fights her demons to allow herself to fall in love with Arthur.

A Doomed Attraction
But disaster looms anew. As heir to the Marquessate of Richmond, Arthur is required to marry—and produce an heir. Lavinia’s scandalous liaison left her with more than just sorrow—she was rendered barren. Can Arthur reconcile familial duty with the needs of the heart?

The Harwell Heirs
Victorian aristocracy has very strict rules concerning marital connections and familial obligations. But the Harwell heirs—Helena, Sophia, and Arthur—discover love doesn’t always follow the rules. Scandalous affairs force these scions of society to choose between duty and desire, deference and destiny.
Book 1: The Pleasure Device
Book 2: Disobedience By Design
Book 3: Where Destiny Plays
An English Lady and a handsome American Patriot in a battle for her heart – will she submit to the enemy?

 

A War Zone

Seduced into marriage by the wicked British general Lord Strathmore, Lady Clara Hastings is forced to leave her beloved England for the shores of the uncivilized American colonies. They arrive upon the outbreak of that young nation's struggle for independence.

 

Unexpected Revelations

Kidnapped and held for ransom by Strathmore's enemies, Clara learns of her husband's debauched pleasures and sadistic past, and discovers her own sensual needs and carnal desires.

 

A Quest For Freedom

Escaping captivity, Clara is taken by patriot fighters. In their clutches, her 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.

 

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 high-heat historical romance set in New York of 1777. This coming of age action and adventure romance 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.

 

The revolutionary romance continues...

"Winter Interlude: An American Revolutionary Novelette" appearing in Naughty Chances: Take A Chance on Romance is a prequel and interquel companion piece to The General's Wife: An American Revolutionary Tale. "Winter Interlude" delves into the relationship between Patriots Captain Samuel Taylor and Lieutenant Patrick Hamilton. Much of the action of "Winter Interlude" takes place in the gap between Chapter Twenty-Three and Chapter Twenty-Four of The General's Wife.

 

The General's Wife was a finalist for the Georgia Romance Writers' 2014 Maggie Award for Excellence.
