USA Today Bestseller of steamy historical westerns

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. If that weren't enough, she also writes under the pen name, Vanessa Dare.

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

Oh my! I was so aroused and in need throughout this book, which I could not put down. I about threw my kindle once I got to the end of the book. NO! I did not want the story to end. Emma is in a bad situation when her step-brother sells her. Luckily, she is bought by Kane and Ian, who can not wait to take Emma home. I know I wanted to be right there with them all at that ranch. I believe there are still men who need to find a bride... sign me up! I am not sure that I can wait until the next book, to release all that I am feeling right now. Great story! I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

OMW!!! Although the story was told in 109 pages, it id not a cliffhanger!!! It is full of hot, raw sex told from each personal view. The story is based upon life without the Puritan restrictions that limit people. This is a book of good people who live life based upon dependence upon each other, glued by hot, hot sex! No romance here1 Be prepared for a couple of hours to read, because once you start, you won' t stop.

No plot and treating this woman like a two year old. No substance at all.

No plot, nothing but porn. I found it offensive and crude. Glad I didn't pay for this. As a woman romance novels are usually fun but this was just cruel.

Help me I'm Melting!!!! Hot Hot Hot! Vanessa Vale spins a story of a sweet girl that wakes up finding that she, the heiress, was sold to a brothel by all people.....her step brother! She is now broke (step brother also cleaned out her bank account) and has two choices work at the brothel on her back or head to a marriage auction where the bidders has certain.....tastes we could say. She is auctioned to two ranchers that train her to be thier wife. As always, Ms Vale brings on the heat! At one point I was sure my e-reader was melting! I also enjoyed the background on the men and how they came into the lifestyle. I am looking forward to more stories about the others at the ranch. However, I was left wondering if Ian ever found Thomas...... I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review."

I love a good ménage story. This one was ok and it did keep my attention but it was missing something. Being a short story/novella I know you can't always get to the meat of a story line but I had hoped for more. I enjoyed the main characters hero's Kane and Ian but Emily the heroine was not my favorite. I just couldn't connect with her.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I hope that Ms. Vale makes it longer and more in depth then this one. I'd love to see their relationship grow and blossom into something heartwarming and believable.  I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.”

If I could unread this story, I would. Deserves no stars. When you stop to think about the premise of this book, it' basically about rape and sex slavery. The girl is SOLD into prostitution, where she is then given the "choice" to get raped by the many or the few. Some reviews poo poo that the word Love is never used....ever heard of StockholmSyndrome? The main character is repeatedly forced to complete sexual acts with her "husbands", who are basically part if some kind of commune in the Wild West, or be "punished".... whenever I thought the main character would stand up for herself, try to save herself....nope. If you want to read S&M threesome stuff, look for something where the partners are consentual...if rape fantasy is your thing...eww....this is your book.

This was not what I expected. The vocabulaty was crude and ugly . There was no plot or story, just a series of explicit sex acts. I would actually rate it a negative 5 stars

I got this for free and at 100 or so pages this was a good quick read. There were quite a few grammar errors. For instance it would say Kane was talking when clearly it was Ian and the same with the other men. It made it hard to tell who exactly was talking on occasion.

I don't feel this was love. It was control and last and the story ended too abrupt.
Anonymous 7 months ago
I liked the story. However it is a cliffhanger with no details about the ending of the stepbrother nor a conclusion of what happend to Ian. Really disappointed about those parts. Otherwise it would have been a good story.

Really short but with some really hot sex scenes. Would read more in the series.

Characters need a little more development for me. Very arousing, but I need less see and more interpersonal relations.
