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?

Read an Excerpt
"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?"
"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."

Claimed in Canada by Christine Edwards 4 out of 5 stars Violet is in Canada to study wolves with three other students from college. She has long been fascinated with wolves and their habits. The students are spending three months in Canada to study the wolves. In two days’ time she meets Damon, he is the nephew of the owners of the inn where they are staying and Luke a second generation logger she meets in the woods. While she feels attracted to both, Luke quickly becomes who she wants and Damon is not happy. Luke and Violet act on their attraction. Luke is a Dom and immediately recognizes Violet is a submissive. The sex between Luke and Violet is hot, he tests her as a new sub and she comes back for more. Damon continues to cause problems until his threat is eliminated. I liked this book. It moved quickly. A novella, it had a plot and the story was complete. It wasn't all sex, there was some mystery and drama as well. Violet got on my nerves a bit as she wanted to be kind to Damon. To me it was obvious from the beginning he had psychological issues. It was also clear she belonged with Luke. I would recommend this book. I see myself reading others by this author. *A complimentary copy given in exchange for an honest review* Susan, My Secret Book Spot
As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by SexxKitten 4 out of 5 Licks 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. Excerpt “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.

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? Some people may be turned off by spanking, flogging and orgasm denial but not this girl! The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because Violet irritated me with her going back and forward between the two men and being a smart girl she made some really stupid moves. However, please don’t let that put you off what I think is a really well written book. I am looking forward to hearing more from the author, Christine Edwards.
An AWESOME read from an amazingly talented new author!! If you liked 50 Shades of Grey and Bared to you, you'll love this one! Christine Edwards writes an amazing, erotic love story. While doing research on wolves in Canada, Violet comes across two men. Instantly falling for her, she is now caught between two dominant men who yearn for her affection. She must choose which one satisfies her needs. This is such a page turner that I couldn't put it down! A great book to lose yourself in. This is a great BDSM story with a dark ending. LOVE! Can't wait to read more from Christine Edwards.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review 'Claimed in Canada' by Christine Edwards. This is another Hot book by Ms. Edwards...there is a section in this book that does go a little violent that might take be starting to you...but overall a another great read! Violet travels to Canadian Yukon on a grant to study Wolves. There she meets Luke and Damon who do not like each other and are both attracted to her. Violet is attracted to Luke but he seems kind of stiff/stern at first where Damon is more friendly, open and he is a Dr. But Luke is not happy that Violet has been talking to Damon and tells her she needs to stay away. It doesn't take Violet to long to know which one she wants to be with but things are not what they seem with Damon.
