If you liked Bridgewater County, you don't want to miss the wild mountain men of Cutthroat, Montana!

We wanted forever with Kit Lancaster. Instead of getting her between us, she left town, bolted like a horse from a barn on fire. A year later, she's back and she's going to be ours. To have, to hold and to f-ing keep. Forever.

What could get in the way? Oh yeah, a little thing called murder.

Safe, no cheating and a guaranteed HEA.

WE PROTECT YOU I was hooked on this suspenseful page-turner romantic suspense tale from the very beginning. What starts with a tragedy will include a claiming, passion, possession, and involve three key people—Kit, Nix, and Donovan. How far will two men be willing to go to finally claim “the one?” When you live in a small town, people talk—but when it includes murder—they take sides. What a shock for Detective Nixon “Nix’ Knight and best friend, Donovan Nash from the DA’s office to learn that Kittredge “Kit” Lancaster is back—has been back in town for weeks and is now part of a murder investigation. The gruesome murder of Erin Mills will involve both men as part of the investigation and trial of the potential suspect—but how will they be able to help Kit and protect her? The plot will have Nix and Donovan making their move on Kit, taking her back to Nix’s place to talk, to find out why she left over a year ago—and then to claim her as theirs. Kit was in love with both Nix and Donovan but misunderstood what she saw before she ran away and now it is time to lay the facts out and clear the air. But, can she really have both men—do they really want her too? “I was being bold. I’d never been like this before. Wild Passionate. These two pulled it out of me, brought out a side I’d never known. They weren’t complaining. In fact, they liked it. Liked me this way, and that made me even hotter.” With the murder of Erin, that places Kit, Nix, and Donovan in a sticky situation. They need to remain impartial and allow the investigation to take place, but her men need to protect her too. “I had nothing to do with Erin’s murder, but that didn’t matter. They didn’t know who did, and that meant they had to follow the rules.” The town is abuzz with gossip, and some will be so brazen as to question or accuse Kit while she is waitressing at the diner. Some people think they hold enough power and prestige to make substantial threats too. But, these people have underestimated the power of love and what two men are willing to do for one woman. “As mayor of a progressive, modern town, I’d say you’re thrilled your son’s found love and that Kittredge Lancaster is quite the woman if she’s captured the hearts of not one man, but two.” The story has several twists and turns as two men must continue with the murder investigation and in secret share the woman that has been special to them. But what happens when she tries to end things to protect them? How far are they willing to go to be with her? “You gave us up to protect us. It pissed us off to know you were protecting us from you.” “You make us one. Whole. A family.” The story is only the beginning and does end on a cliffhanger. There are explicit sex scenes include ménage and mild spanking. If you are not already on Ms. Vanessa Vales’ newsletter list, you need to take advantage and join—there are bonus scenes for each book in her newsletter.

An emotional, hot & spicy MFM second chance romance. Kit was finally back in Cutthroat, Montana working at a job she really enjoyed but avoiding the two men, Nix and Donovan, she really cared about. But when she wakes up and finds her friend-business partner-roommate dead in the living room, she comes face to face with Nix in his job as a police officer and Donovan as the prosecutor. They both know she's innocent but they have to prove it. And find out why she ran away from them in the first place. I couldn't believe how quickly I got pulled into this story or how emotional it made me. I really enjoyed reading about this triad. This is the first book in the Wild Mountain Men series and although it ends with a happily ever after, it does end on a bit of a cliffhanger.

It has been a while since I have read a Vanessa Vale story, so it was enjoyable to jump into a new series of hers. We get three beautiful characters and a mystery on top of it. Kit is back in Montana, and she is finally getting her life back in order after running away from her home a year ago. She is ready to start her career with her friend and make a life. However, when she wakes up one morning and her friend is found dead, and Kit is the prime suspect her life is changed forever. Nix and Donovan are the detective and district attorney in charge of the investigation. However, they also have been in love with Kit since they were all kids. They want to protect Kit but also know they have to keep this investigation going and in high regards. What will every one do to make sure a killer doesn't getaway? This story is fast-paced and the chemistry between these three jumps off the pages. I was highly surprised this story ended on a cliffy though. I can't wait to read the next story!

Can I just say OMG another great book from Vanessa Vale, Mountain Darkness is one great read, it has mystery, suspense and definitely some heat that will have you fanning yourself throughout this book. This is a story that will definitely keep you hooked from the very start till the very end. The characters are two strong alpha men and the strong woman they want to claim. Kit has returned to Cutthroat, Montana the town and the two men she left a year ago. Nix and Donovan are surprised at the return of Kit and they have some important questions for her but first there is a little thing like murder in their way. This is where the real fun and excitement starts. This is the start to a new series Wild Mountain Men and it is one fantastic start can’t wait for more.

This book absolutely surprised the heck out of me! I've read a lot of books by this author, so I'm used to her brand of steamy, dirty romance. But this story started off with a bang, and ended with an even bigger bang! It wasn't exactly a cliff hanger, because the characters got their HEA, but there is a mystery, that didn't end like I expected, and I'm thinking it will probably be carried over into the next book in the series. I CAN'T WAIT! If Kit didn't have bad luck, she wouldn't have any luck at all. She grew up with a mother that was immersed in a world of mental illness, and practically raised herself. This led to her being looked down on in the small town she grew up in. It was a dreadful way for a young girl to grow up, and I think led to her feelings of inadequacy and not being good enough. She loves Donovan and Nix, but something drives her away. When she comes back for a job opportunity, she doesn't let them know. Until tragedy throws her in their path. And boy, they really don't let grass grow under their feet! They know what they want, and do everything in their power to get it! This book was a typical VV romance. Hot men, hotter chemistry, and explosive connections! But there is this added feeling of uncertainty, of danger, that really gives this book a little extra something, that pushes it from a good book, to a great book! Definitely one of my favorites by this author!
