Thrice married, thrice deceived. Guildmaster Heinrich von Steinser is determined that this marriage will be different. Bettina Gunden's beauty and sensuality is what originally captured his interest among the wilted flowers of the ton, but once their vows are made, she becomes a veritable shrew at home and an ice maiden in bed. After losing his only son to the wolves and his daughter's hand to their beast, Heinrich realizes only one path will save his marriage. Dominate Bettina until she submits to her new role in life—wife.

Bettina has always been the perfect society miss, allowing her mother's iron hand to control every aspect of her life. Now that she's made the perfect match, her mother's manipulations continue. Waking in a strange room and bound to a bed, Bettina realizes Heinrich has reached the limits of his patience. Now, she must choose—the mother who terrifies her with the depths of her deceptions or the husband who has claimed her with the heat of his touch.

As the second book in a series, CLAIMED is a paranormal story by Abby Gordon. For full appreciation, my recommendation is to read the first installment of the Beloved of the Beast series.

This story focuses on Heinrich Von Steinser and initially takes place on the deathbed of his wife. She makes a prophecy, which is the central part of the storyline.

Bettina Gunden marries Von Steinser, but her mother's meddling has some serious consequences. I had significant difficulty following the storyline, which I would imagine would have been much easier if I had read the stories in sequence. There's a strong connection between witchcraft and other paranormal activity depicted in the story.
