Claimed by the Mountain Man by Amelia Smarts

Times are hard in Montana in the mid-1800s, and when Nettie finds herself impoverished, desperate, and alone after the death of her husband, she flees the town of Helena to escape the clutches of the local saloon owner. But living off the land quickly proves much more difficult than she’d hoped, and after days without food she resorts to stealing from Jack Abrams, a gruff mountain man and trapper who lives a secluded, uncomplicated life in the woods.

Jack doesn’t take kindly to being stolen from and when he catches her red-handed, Nettie ends up lying naked over his knee for a long, hard spanking. To her surprise, however, after her punishment Jack offers her food and shelter in return for cooking, cleaning, and doing as she is told. But Nettie is determined to never rely on a man again, and with a belly full of food and renewed determination, she abandons him to take another shot at living in the woods on her own.

Jack knows the headstrong girl won’t survive without his help, especially when she chooses a grizzly’s winter cave as her shelter, and he can’t stand by and idly watch her demise. When his irritation with her foolish pride boils over, he decides it is time to show her how thoroughly a man can dominate a woman silly enough to venture into the woods alone. Jack’s stern chastisement and bold mastery of her body leave Nettie begging for more, but is she truly ready to give up her freedom to be claimed by the mountain man?

Nettie is a headstrong and naive girl left to fend for herself after the death of her husband. After struggling with society, she decides to leave town and head for the woods.

Jack is an all-around mountain man. He likes his peaceful and quiet life that he has in the wilderness.

When Jack sets a trap to catch the creature after his chickens, he never expects to catch a woman. He quickly finds that she is strong willed and he knows just what to do about it.

This was a nice, quick, and entertaining read for me and I would recommend it to romance fans.

This book was okay and a quick read. It follows Nettie, who is down on her luck, trying her best to survive after the death of her husband. She steals from Trapper Jack and he catches her. This is where the story really begins.

The characters are likeable enough, however I felt there was a little too much spanking and a little less of everything else. I would have liked more of a backstory for the characters.

I had one major issue though. Some of words used didn't sit right with a historical romance book, they were modern words that threw me off a little.

If you want a quick read, it's good for that.

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Historical Erotica and Erotic Westerns!

I'm an author of romance novels featuring domestic discipline in the form of spanking. Usually my stories involve a cowboy, and they always involve a man's firm hand connecting with a woman's naughty backside. It's important to me that I tell a good story in addition to portraying hot sex and discipline scenes. I write complex, flawed heroes and heroines who struggle and succeed in their journey to love and happiness.

I hold graduate and undergraduate degrees in creative writing and English, and I love the written word. If you'd like to talk books with me, feel free to drop me a note at Happy reading!
