All 3 books in the Mail Order Bride of Slate Springs series are included.

~ A Wanton Woman ~ Book 1

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 Benson 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?

~ A Wild Woman ~ Book 2

With five overbearing brothers, Piper Dare must head West to forge her own life. Her trip takes an unexpected turn when she fills in as a mail order bride for a woman she meets on the stage. Lane Haskins and Spur Drews are stunned by their new bride. A gun toting, foul language spewing redhead is not what they expected. But they don't mind the little wildcat. In fact, they love her instantly. But their match takes a decided turn and their love—and devotion—is put to a very powerful test.

~ A Wicked Woman ~ Book 3

Because of her stepsisters, Eve Jamison is driven from her hometown in scandal with a train ticket in one hand and a proxy marriage license in the other. But when she arrives in the small Colorado mountain town, she discovers her groom recently died. Even though she never met her husband, the new widow learns she is quite wealthy. At the mercy of her dead husband's money-grubbing family, Knox and Jed Dare each vow to protect her. They both want the beautiful bluestocking and refuse to cede way to the other.

Eve has other ideas where the two men are concerned. Because she is now a woman of Slate Springs, she doesn't have to choose. She wants both Jed and Knox... and gets them.

Town Notice: Celia was living in Tyler, Texas as the wife of the one of town’s doctors. Her world is turned upside on the one blazing hot afternoon when she decides to return home early. After leaving behind the ostracism of Tyler, Texas, she becomes a mail order to Luke Tate in Slate Springs, Colorado. Luke Tate, the mayor of Slate Springs, Colorado, has decreed that in the territory of Slate Springs, two men can marry one woman in order to entice marriage aged citizens to the mining town. In order to kick off the decree, Luke and his brother, Walker, decide to take a mail order bride. How will Celia react when she realizes she is getting two husbands for the price of one? A Wild Woman: Piper Dare is the youngest and only girl out of six children. Her five older brothers are overly protective of her since their parents died when she was young. Because of their overprotective natures, she can’t get a beau to court her. She just wants to have a home and family of her own. Spurgeon Drews, the doctor of Slate Springs, Colorado and his best friend Lance Haskins, decide to take on a mail order bride. However, the gun toting, gambling, wildfire Piper is not what they expected. What happens when the husbands find out the truth about Piper and her trip to them? A Wicked Woman: Eve Jamison has worked hard to earn an education so that she can teach and support her wicked stepmother and two stepsisters. However, her stepsisters have another idea in mind for Eve. When Eve finds out the soon to be husband she never met or wrote has died prior to her arriving to town, she is back at square one. However, the Dare brothers, Jeb and Knox, do the gentlemanly thing and help Eve out. Just when they are finding love, in steps her wicked stepsisters asking for a handout. Will this change how the Dares think of Eve? This was the first time I had read anything by Vanessa Vale. I was truly surprised that I enjoyed the stories. Usually, I do not go for threesomes, reverse harems, polyamorous relationship novels. Although the premise was the same in each story—two men in Slate Springs indoctrinate a single female to their way of living—the author tried to diversify the men. Except for the Dare brothers, the other men had some emotional issues that needed to be overcome in order from them to proceed with the relationship fully. I mean in theory sharing a female sounds great, in practice, it is another situation. The steam factor in these stories is fine. After the first story, it is not as exciting and steamy because the author limits the imagination for the boudoir. I finished the series wanting to read more about Slate Springs and hoping for an epilogue or follow-up.
