When Violet London travels to the Canadian Yukon on a research grant, she can’t imagine greater excitement than the chance to study wolves firsthand. Yet more thrilling than any wolf is Luke Benoit, a handsome French Canadian Logger whose brute desire to dominate both tempts and frightens her. Unnerved by her craving to submit to primal passion, Violet is drawn to another man, Damon Holden. Damon is a gorgeous surgeon with everything a girl could want—money, education, and sophistication. Violet must choose between the man who saved her life during an attack by the very creatures she is sworn to protect and the man who offers her the comfort of financial security and solid social standing.

Damon is the safe choice, or is he?

“I loved CLAIMED IN CANADA. It’s a sexy spin on the typical stories of Domination and submission that line the bookstore shelves these days. I am really looking forward to reading more of author Christine Edward’s work, hopefully in the near future.”  Read more …

–Bookie Nookie Reviews

“Just reading about Luke gives a girl the sweats & chills … yup, it’s a cold shower, extra batteries, need your significant other, type of read! Claimed in Canada is full of hot sex, but it also contains a fantastic storyline…. Christine Edwards has written one hell of a book!”  Read more ….

—Karry Pacious, I am a Book Addict … and proud of it

“The book is written in the first person which gives it a more personal touch. It feels almost like a diary, a record of Violet’s adventures in remote Canadian wilderness. I got very quickly engrossed in Violets exploration of her almost animalistic attraction to Luke, a local lumberjack….  I have enjoyed the book tremendously and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good, romantic story with alpha males, sassy heroines, twists and turns, and a happy ending long time coming.”  Read more ….

–Miss Anna Key, Nudge Wink Wink Romance Reviews

“What a sexy adventure, in and out of bed! …. There’s an undercurrent of mystery, and suspense through-out the story…. Luke is all action, baby! She succumbs to his domineering nature, and expertise in cranking up her libido (I did, too, but in my mind). The sex between these two is scorching! I think at one point I actually had heart palpitations …. This is a well-written, sexy story and I couldn’t put it down.”  Read more ….

—Tory Richards’ Romance with an Attitude blog

“As the story progresses Ms. Edwards takes us on an emotional rollercoaster with twists and turns that leave us gasping. The sexual chemistry between Violet and her chosen is very hot and consistent. The raw emotion that comes across during the sex is hot enough to melt through the snow of Canada. The suspense in the story is nicely woven into the romance and leaves you begging for more. I really enjoyed Claimed in Canada and I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Edwards.”

–LT Blue, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

“Well, that was quite an intense story! The way it was written had me pulled into the action immediately. I found it easy to imagine being in the snowy forest with Violet……and Luke. Oh.My.God….Luke, he is the quintessential alpha male and not only that but a full on he-man Dom, be still my beating heart! There is no doubt that Violet is attracted to him but she is also attracted to Damon. Damon is very different from Luke. Where Luke is a rough around the edges outdoors guy, Damon is a wealthy surgeon with smooth moves. However there was something about Damon that made my skin crawl and his creepy side was soon revealed (I totally called it!!!)The sex is smoking and Luke really showed his dominant side.”  Read more ….

“As I read Claimed in Canada, the weather where I am is well over 100 degrees, so the snow and ice was welcome to cool down a hot read.”

–MR Review

Says Christine, “As an avid skier, I have been fortunate enough to glide down slopes all over the world, yet it’s the awe inspiring scenery that I encountered in Whistler, B.C., that carved a special place into my heart, thus leading to my initial inspiration to pen Claimed in Canada. ‘R’ and I stayed in a rustic yet chic chalet-style home that was filled with Native Indian masks and art, along with fantastic woodwork everywhere your eye wandered. It was quite easy for me to allow my imagination to run wild. Outdoors we would often ski for long periods of time without seeing another soul. Although we only encountered deer and rabbits within the forest just off the slopes we were more than aware of dangerous creatures (Bears and cougars) that call the frozen mountain their home. One would certainly not want go off of a run and become lost in the forests on the mountain, especially at night or during a swiftly moving storm where your visibility would be severely impaired. I wanted to blend all of this intense drama and beauty into my book, thinking that it would be exciting to save all of the danger for my fabulous heroine.”

“You know what a Dom is, Violet?”

My brain does a free-fall as all of the air flees my lungs.

He sits patiently awaiting my answer with a cool gaze that doesn’t betray his thoughts. I wish I could be so calm.

“I, well, I’ve read a few books. I assume that you’re referring to a d-dominant?” I stammer, unable to meet his eyes. My throat feels as dry as kindling.

“Yes, now tell me about what you’ve read.” Still no expression. Is he trying to torture me? I’m sure my face is fire-engine red by this point.

“Well, they were just, you know, erotic stories with Master and slave scenarios.”

I start to look at my hands clutching my tea cup when he says to me, “Don’t look away again. Tell me, did they get you aroused?”

He’s impossible.

“Luke, this is highly embarrassing. I’m shy to begin with and these questions are really personal. I’m feeling very uncomfortable now. Is this your goal? To humiliate me?” I turn away again.

“You’re gorgeous when you blush like that, baby; however, I asked you not to look away from my eyes. If you do it again I’ll have to teach you a lesson, little beauty. Understood?”

Oh my God! My body betrays me. My pussy just got totally wet at the thought.

I struggle to keep eye contact and nod.

“Were you aroused by the books?”

“Of course I was. I mean, most women want a man who’s completely in control during sex, correct?”

He gives me a thoughtful look, like a teacher. “You’d be surprised, angel. Most think that they want to give up their control, but that control is who they are so they can never really submit to their base needs and desires.”

A deep concept from such a rugged guy.

“The reason I’m asking you about your interest in the stories you’ve read is because I can see as plain as day that you’re a natural submissive, right to your very core, baby, and being a Dom, I find this irresistible.”

I’m at a total loss for words and have never been so shocked in my life. Leveling him with a serious look, I ask, “Are we really having a discussion about BDSM?”

Without hesitation he fires back, “Yeah, we are and I’ll tell you why, angel. You defied me by getting into an ass load of trouble today. Nearly got both of us killed and I’m going to punish you for it, but I’m a fair guy so I’m giving you a choice. Either take your punishment by itself or take your punishment followed by the pleasure that I’ll allow. But that will be given only if you’re a good girl for me.”
