Mountain Man’s Claim by Annabelle Love
I was searching for a new home.
What I found was a wild mountain man.
I moved to this small town to build a new life.
How was I supposed to know there’d be nowhere else to stay?
Or that Caleb Walker likes his cabin to himself.
He thinks I’m a city-girl who’ll fly away when the going gets tough.
But I see the pain behind his deep, dark eyes…
And the beast that’s driving him to kick me out.
So, I offer him a job.
Fix-up the house I’m buying in town,
And I’ll be gone all the sooner.
Then everything changes the night of the harvest dance.
When he says those 7 words…
“Tell me you want me inside you.”
Now the closer I get to moving out,
The closer our hearts get to breaking.
He’s still holding back.
He’s still pushing me away.
But something tells me there’s a man behind the beast.
And he’s going to claim everything I am.
