About “The Demonstration”
When I wrote Dr. Christopher (as I call it and will probably continue to call it, so if you ever meet me, I might call it that; it’s okay, though, as Dr. Julius Christopher is a central character in the book), I wanted the opening scene to depict a demonstration of the electro-mechanical vibrating device. What better way to do this than to show it from the point of view of the subject being demonstrated upon and what she experiences—the frustration of being a study participant, the pleasure experienced from the device. So that’s how the novel originally opened.
Sexy fun includes: masturbation, voyeurism.
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, Helena and Nicholas’s story
Book 2: Disobedience By Design, Sophia and Joseph’s story
Book 3: Where Destiny Plays, Arthur and Lavinia’s story
