About this ebook

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.

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!

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.
