Overview

Celia Lawrence can't show her face in her conservative, small town. First, she discovered her husband in bed with another man's wife, and then she witnessed both their murders. While she didn't pull the trigger, small town gossip is not forgiving and everywhere she goes she is chastised for not being woman enough to keep her straying husband at home. Eager to flee her old life, Celia heads to Colorado as a mail-order bride.

As mayor of Slate Springs, Colorado, Luke Tate is expected to set the example. Their small town is hidden away in a remote mountainous region where few women have the courage or desire to tread. As mayor, it falls to him to test out their newly passed law and share a wife with his brother. The truth is, Luke has no interest in a woman of his own, and agrees to a mail-order bride out of duty, not anticipation.

His brother, Walker, is jaded and hard after the death of his first wife. For Walker, loving again is out of the question. But a man has needs, and he'll eagerly take his pleasure from their new bride while expecting Luke to provide the tenderness and caring a woman expects.

A marriage based on everything but love should be doomed. But Celia, Luke and Walker discover one thing they have in common: desire. Will that be strong enough to survive the danger that follows Celia from Texas? Will desire be strong enough to teach three broken souls that sometimes you have to risk everything for love?

USA Today Bestselling author

Who doesn't love the romance of the old West? Vanessa Vale takes the sensual appeal of rugged cowboys a step further with her bestselling books set in the Montana Territory. They are much more than just sexy historical westerns. They're deliciously naughty reads that sometimes push the boundaries of fantasy. It's pure escapism with quite a few very hot, very alpha cowboys.

When she's not writing, Vanessa savors the insanity of raising two boys, is figuring out how many meals she can make with a pressure cooker, and teaches a pretty mean karate class. She considers herself to be remarkably normal, exceedingly introverted and fairly vanilla, which does not explain her steamy stories and her fascination with cowboys, preferably more than one at a time.

She lives in the Wild Wild West where there's an endless source of 'research' material.

**I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review** I'm not normally a Historical Romance reader, they have to really get my attention to get me to read them, this story did not disappoint. It was a page turner from the start. Great characters and an interesting story line mixed with steamy love scenes. I am smitten with Walker, lol. If you're a fan of menage stories you should give this one a try. It might end up becoming a favorite.

A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion. Great Book 1 for new series! Celia was trying to build her life after her husband's betrayal. She becomes a mail order bride. She was surprised to learn that she was married to 2 husbands instead of 1 Luke is the new mayor or Slate Springs + Walter is his brother. Because of the new law, a wife can have 2 husbands. Luke + Walter are protective + loving towards Celia. Let's not forget the bad guy that was to kill Celia. This book has danger, romance, + steamy sex scenes.

Circumstance made these brothers NEED to marry the same woman. The woman herself made them WANT her. I enjoyed watching Walker fight falling in love with Celia. I also liked watching Celia blossom as a part of a new ménage marriage. With Luke and Walker as your husbands, who wouldn't! Sizzling! This author is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The settings, the language, the dress, it's all playing in my head like a real time movie. I love it when that happens! I can't wait to read more of this fabulous series.

I enjoyed this western menage with Celia, Luke, and Walker. Celia has come to Colorado as a mail order bride for Luke after her husband was murdered while sleeping with a married woman. She wants to change the way she has lived and after her first husband and no passion, she was ready for Luke. What she didn't know was she was also wed to Luke's brother, Walker, after their town, Slate Springs, passed a law which allowed a wife to have more than one husband. Since Luke is the mayor he is the first to have a bride to share with his brother. This is a sexy story that concentrates mostly on the three getting to know each other and what it will take to live together as husband and wife and husband. It was a pleasure to watch the brothers come together to make Celia feel not only welcome but loved...by both. **I VOLUNTARILY REVIEWED AN ADVANCE READER COPY OF THIS BOOK**
