The Series: Wildflowers Of Montana

There are currently four published books in the series, with another four to follow shortly.

Rose | Hyacinth | Dahlia | Daisy |

Click on the book cover to Look Inside the book on Amazon and read an excerpt.

Rose [1]

Rose Lenox has grown up to be more comfortable on the back of a horse than wearing ribbons and bows like her seven adopted sisters. For years working the land was enough, but lately Rose finds herself wishing for something different. She wants her own ranch and freedom from her overwhelming and unorthodox family. Rose is determined to strike out on her own and forge her own path.

Lenox neighbor, Chance Goodman, has watched Rose grow from a spitfire of a girl to a beautiful and fiery woman. For years he's waited patiently and watched her struggle to find her place in the world. When she leaves the Lenox ranch alone, determined to abandon her former life and to say good-bye to him, he knows the time has come to claim her. Letting her walk away isn't an option. Chance knows exactly what she needs...and he's going to give it to her.

The Wildflowers of Montana begins with Rose and her hot, Alpha cowboy.

Hyacinth [2]

When handsome Jackson Reed comes home from the army, he catches the immediate attention of the seven Lenox daughters. But he only has eyes for one — beautiful Hyacinth Lenox. It's apparent that she notices him as well, so why is she doing everything she can to avoid him?

Hyacinth can't stop thinking about the sandy-haired newcomer, but while she longs for happiness with Jackson, she feels unworthy to marry him or anyone else. Guilt from a tragic childhood incident dogs her even into adulthood, leaving her to feel undeserving of Jackson's love.

But Jackson isn't a man so easily dissuaded. He's determined to rid Hyacinth of her pain and make her his wife. Can he heal her past hurt and awaken her to the carnal pleasures he wants just with her? He senses a great capacity for love and passion in this fair Lenox flower. Unlocking it will mean a battle of wills, but love is worth the fight.

The Wildflowers of Montana continues with Hyacinth and her sharpshooting hero.

Dahlia [3]

The lure of the big city has called to tempestuous Dahlia Lenox, her entire life. Dahlia is tired of ranch life and all the rules and restrictions placed on women by polite society. She can't resist breaking the rules, and is very, very good at it. The poker table is her domain, the one place she yields to no one's rules but her own. She's staring down the biggest win in her life, a prize that will free her from small town life forever and she can't wait to claim her bittersweet victory. But nothing is perfect, and leaving town means leaving the only man who ever made her ache to be his, Garrison Lee. He wants everything she can't give him, including an obedient wife who surrenders to him in bed. Surrender is not in her nature, and as much as it hurts, she will keep all of her secrets and leave the arrogant and sexy Garrison behind.

Garrison Lee is tired of waiting. He's been patient. He's been courteous. He's been a damn gentleman and all that's gotten him is a polite brush off from Dahlia each of the three times he proposed. When Dahlia risks everything to escape him forever, Garrison is forced to raise the stakes in a single hand of poker...winner take all.

Dahlia is about to discover that Garrison won't take no for an answer, that her restlessness can be tamed by a man with a firm hand, and that he knows exactly how to channel her wild side into more carnal pursuits. But Dahlia is nothing if not stubborn. Garrison's seduction is relentless, his hand firm as he tries to convince his passionate new bride that everything she ever wanted is right in front of her...before he loses her forever.

Book 3 in the Wildflowers of Montana Series continues with the tempestuous Dahlia and the man who will tame her.

Daisy [4]

Daisy Lenox has always felt invisible next to her beautiful and vivacious sisters. But one man changed all that. The new town doctor, Ethan James, watches her with an intensity that quickly turns her curiosity to obsession. He's the first man to encourage her bluestocking ways, and the first to offer a stern reprimand when she needs it. Daisy knows his firm commands should offend, but to her shock, they make her feel protected and cared for. Ethan James makes her feel...alive. But Doctor James is keeping secrets, and Daisy is determined to find out the truth at any cost. When Daisy follows the unsuspecting doctor out of town, her obsession causes her to slip ever so close to death. And although the doctor manages to save her life, it comes at a high price for them both...marriage.

Ethan James might be new to the Montana Territory, but he's very familiar with the world's evils. A battle hardened Southerner, he's witnessed enough death and destruction to last a lifetime. He came out West to escape the ghosts of his past and to start a new life, a life in which he will maintain firm control of his medical practice and his honor. He is sworn to heal, and offering much needed medical services to the native tribe is his something he feels he must do. But local prejudice and hatred are hard foes to fight, so he keeps his actions secret...until Daisy Lenox follows him into the wild and nearly gets herself killed.

Ethan isn't sure she'll survive, and although he treats her naked flesh with the detached eyes of a healer, the man in him remembers her intelligent eyes, and her soft acceptance of his dominating ways. Once he's knows that she'll survive, he is determined to ensure she never takes such a chance with her life again, and gives her a taste of discipline with a bare bottom spanking meant to make her see the error of her ways. But something happens, and Daisy melts under his command, unable to resist his firm hand or his need for control. Her acceptance and trust awaken a need so strong that Ethan knows there is only one thing he can do to protect both her innocent desire to submit and her reputation, marry her.

They take their vows, and now both Daisy and Ethan will push the limits of her need to trust against his need to control. But when Ethan's secret is revealed, the world's evil will rise against them and put their fragile new love to the ultimate test. Is a marriage based on dominance and submission enough? Or will pressure from the outside world destroy them both?

Daisy and her dominant doctor continue the bestselling Wildflowers Of Montana series.

Author Guest Post

What would I tell a new author?

Don't stop writing! Why?
  1. You get better at it. Per my editor, I'm the Queen of the Dangling Modifier, but I am getting better and better at recognizing them in my writing and fixing them (or not doing them at all). Hopefully, she will soon pass that crown on to someone else.
  2. Your fans are voracious. They always want more!
  3. Your fans also have short-term memory. If you want them to remember you, have something new for them to buy.
  4. Amazon has an algorithm that either puts you out there to readers or puts you in some dark dungeon where no one can find you. The more books you have, the better your algorithm*. The asterisk means that while you might need lots of books, you also need to publish them swiftly.
  5. If writing is to be your full time job, you need to treat it as such: a full time job. That means working at least forty hours a week at it. I work probably eighty because it's not just the writing (sorry, but it's also marketing) This is not a hobby. When I worked for corporate America, trust me, that job was not a hobby, so unless I want to go back to Xerox or Ford, I need to write FULL-TIME.
  6. Fall in love with the genre you write. Be good at it. Feel good about it. Settle in. Stay awhile. Your fans will know what you write and where to find you.
Readers- Do you miss an author that takes too long to write a new book? I know I do!

About the Author

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Erotic Western and Historical Erotica

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. By introducing sexual taboos into this otherwise traditional romantic setting, Vanessa has won the loyalty of a fan base that never knows quite what to expect with each new series.

"Montana Maidens" was the first to push the envelope with strong BDSM themes. "Montana Men" followed suit with softer themes but lots of deliciously graphic sex. "The Bridgewater Series" showcases ménage relationships because sometimes one hot cowboy isn't enough. No-holds-barred, graphic descriptions, strong storytelling, engaging characters and breathtaking landscapes all combine to make very naughty reads.

And as a resident of Wild Wild West, Vanessa Vale finds plenty of inspiration for her work, for who doesn't love a handsome cowboy?
