Description

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 1: The Pleasure Device

Book 2: Disobedience By Design

In 1860, the railways of Victorian England transport American stevedore Joseph Phillips to the lush countryside of Lincolnshire…and into the arms of Lady Sophia Harwell. But Sophia is betrothed to a violent villain who wants only two things: her virginity and her dowry. Can Joseph save his beloved without scandalizing upper-class British society?

Book 3: Where Destiny Plays

A night of passion at Victorian England’s most notorious masquerade finds Arthur Harwell in the arms of Lavinia. A wealthy viscountess with strong political ties, she’s the perfect match for the future marquess. But tragedy has left her unable to provide Arthur with the one thing he needs: an heir. Must Arthur abandon true love to satisfy aristocratic obligations?

From Publishers Weekly

May 23, 2016 – Kammer (Hadrian and Sabina: A Love Story) starts her Victorian-era Harwell Heirs erotica series with a lighthearted, medical-themed story centering on the electric vibrator, popular as an in-office remedy for female "hysteria." Dr. Julius Christopher, wanting to experiment in detail with the device, takes in lusty servant Grace Danby and hires on young colleague Dr. Nicholas Ramsay, the prot g of his former lover, Lady Foxley-Graham. Nicholas and Helena Phillips become smitten with each other during the festivities of London's social season. Julius realizes he'd rather experiment on a virgin than on experienced Grace; Helena's mother, Lady Sophia, is addicted to him and his machine, so he manipulates her into promising to give him Helena. Though Kammer focuses on the female orgasm, her story is heavily filtered through the male gaze; the women describe their responses only when the men ask, and although it's made clear that the women either already know how to masturbate or are trained by the doctors, readers are rarely privy to interesting solo sessions. This is cookie-cutter fluff without enough over-the-top villainy to carry off the humor of the setup. (BookLife)
