"I’m not obliged to obey you"


Claimed by the Mountain Man

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?

 Publisher’s Note: Claimed by the Mountain Man is an erotic romance novel that contains sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Here is a taste...


Jack stood and walked to the sofa, where he sat while she attended to the dishes. He watched and waited for her to finish before he said, “Come here, Nettie.” He needed to talk some sense into her, and now was as good a time as any.

 She frowned and didn’t look like she wanted to obey, but she traipsed to him after a moment’s hesitation. He pointed to the spot next to him. She sat and self-consciously tugged at the hem of his shirt that she was wearing. Then she folded her hands in front of her on her lap and looked at them instead of at him, seeming to know that she wouldn’t like whatever he had to say.

 Jack rubbed a hand around the beard on his face. “I won’t allow you to go on living in that cave.” His words came out exactly how he hoped they wouldn’t, as an order. A strict upbringing, followed by six years in the military, meant orders were what he was used to, both giving and receiving, and he wasn’t sure how to get his point across to the woman any other way.

 She scowled at her folded hands. “You ain’t my husband or pa, Trapper Jack, and you don’t own that cave. I’m not obliged to obey you.”

 His jaw clenched. This wasn’t going to be an easy task, convincing her to listen to reason. He found her argument downright infuriating. “I know a thing or two about living in the woods,” he said, raising his voice a notch. “I can see you’re real good at some things, like baking, mending, and cleaning. You’re even all right at skinning a rabbit, but none of that will matter if you can’t catch your food and you don’t have proper shelter come winter.”

 She opened her mouth to protest, but he held a finger to her lips. They felt damp and soft, and he felt the sudden desire to kiss her stubborn mouth, if for no other reason than to prevent her from saying another foolish word. The fire in her eyes died when he touched her, and she gazed at him dolefully. He continued his lecture. “Don’t waste your breath saying you’re gonna shoot the grizzly. That’s a fool’s notion. I imagine you’re about as good at shooting as you are at trapping, and you can’t afford to make a mistake there. You miss the bear or only injure it, you’re dead.”
