It's only been a week since Claiming Catherine was published and it's made quite a stir. It rocketed up Amazon's charts and has sat at #1 in three categories all this time.
The premise of the story is a mail order bride coming to Liberty, Montana to begin her life with her new husband, Jake Bridger. But Liberty isn't a normal town and wives have strict rules to adhere to. As we're in the Erotic category, this book is obviously hot and a prime example of escapist fiction. It is the first in a series of three books, the second, Taming Tessa, comes out on 12/4
If you like erotic romance--mail order brides, Montana, historical westerns, with a whole lot of male dominance--enjoy!
Branded a harlot for undoing a confining button on her blouse, Catherine Langton's finds herself rejected by the man she is to marry, leaving her in a predicament: mail order bride or the poorhouse. Her decision is simple and she arrives in Liberty, Montana to marry a man she's never seen, her only desire to be a pleasing wife.
Jake Bridger exceeds Catherine's expectations at first glance. He looks as if he stepped from the pages of the Western romances she knows she shouldn't read. But she's about to find out that the men of Liberty are not like other men. Here, a wife is expected to make all of herself available to her husband, even parts a good girl like Catherine never expected a man to plunder. It's not an easy adjustment, but Jake isn't a man to take "no" for an answer, and sets about training his new bride using techniques that soon have Catherine wantonly eager for his attentions.
But can Catherine live with her new husband's explicit requirements when it opposes everything she's known?
If you're looking for a smoking hot Western that breaks the mold, then this first book in the Montana Maidens Series won't just leave you satisfied, but eagerly awaiting the continuation of the sexiest, most wildly explicit adventure to hit the open range of publishing in a very long time.

“The role and expectations of wife around here are different than what you're probably used to,” he added as we rode.
“Oh?” I asked, wondering what the variations might be.
“There are many things for you to learn. I was going to wait until we returned to the ranch, however perhaps now may be useful to start.”
I knitted my brow in confusion. “Useful, how?”
“You can't run away if you're sitting in my lap,” he answered.
I tensed against his body, still confined between his arms that held the reins. I worried my lip, for the first time fearful of the man I married. “And why...why would there be cause to run away?”
"Because I'm going to make demands on your body you never considered before."
"You agreed to...to no, um, no...intercourse." I whispered the word, glancing to see if his brothers heard. "Not until we know each other better."
"I wasn't referring to fucking."
