Claimed by Sarah O’Rourke – Blog Tour with Review
Instalove! Fire Chief Aiden James often fell in lust, but not in love. That was — until the beautiful new librarian Carolina Mayfair showed up in his small town. The sparks flew and set them both aflame for one magical night, and the resulting inferno changed both of their lives forever.
Caro Mayfair was passionate, committed, and not looking for love at all. She just wanted to use her newly-minted college degree at the small library in the mountain town of Paradise. Little did she know that she was about to meet the man that would set her world on fire!
Erotica, romantica, and all sorts of other stuff!
28K-word standalone novella; can be read as standalone or part of the Passion in Paradise series.

Aiden had known the second he laid his eyes on that spectacular hourglass figure of hers that he wanted her. Of course he had. A man would have to be dead not to want to spend time between those gorgeous thighs, worshiping at those fantastic breasts while he fucked into what he’d bet was the tightest pussy in creation. Yes, his cock had screamed ‘MINE!’ the moment his gaze settled on her fine little body. But the second she’d turned and he’d seen her exquisite face for the first time… yeah, he’d been done. He’d known that woman would hold him – heart, mind, body, and soul.
There’d been no question at all.
He was claiming sweet Carolina for his own.
This book was erotic and FUN! I loved both our hero, Aiden, and our heroine, Carolina. Aiden is swoony and completely alpha male…not to mention HOT!!! Carolina is smart and sassy and is new to Paradise, hoping for a whole new life (whew…bet she did’t see this new life coming from a mile away lol). Well, Paradise never fails to roll out the welcome mats and Aiden stumbles upon Carolina before she can hit town limits. Fireworks immediately go off for these two and what an amazing display it is to see. Carolina is the perfect match for Aiden and he is what she has been searching for his entire life. But can one simple misunderstanding derail these two love-birds? All bets are off when love is on the line. I loved the push and pull between the two of them, and I fell in lust with Aiden…how can you not. He is completely over-the-moon for his girl from the moment he lays eyes on her!!! The book was a quick read but chock full of the witty banter you can expect from the writing duo of Sarah O’Rourke. There is plenty of emotionally charged, erotic sex, something Ms. O’Rourke excels at! Claimed does feature insta-love and is fresh and fast-paced. There is even a little surprise twist thrown in the mix, which made this book even more enjoyable for me to read. We see previous characters from the Paradise Series in this book, too! I love visiting the town of Paradise and I can’t wait until these ladies bring us back for more. Overall, this book was short but very enjoyable read and I highly recommend it to those who like to read novella’s, insta-love, and erotic romance with some humor sprinkled in. 4.5 stars!
