Kathy Heare Watts

Book three in the Wild Mountain Men series adds several new people, including the three main people, new to town, Dr. Samantha Smyth, then friends, Mac and Hardin. While this story might be read as a stand-alone, it will have many people from the previous two books, and also plenty of mention of the unsolved murder of Erin Mills--an ongoing case in Cutthroat.

Dr. Sam Smyth picked the area of Cutthroat to practice medicine from a visit to the area with her

*I received this book as a gift in exchange for my honest opinion.

HOLY MOTHER OF OMG!!!!!!! I knew I was going to love the mechanic, but daaaaaang!!!!

Sam is the new local doctor in town. Ok, she's more than that. She's actually a crazy small woman who not only went to Harvard at fourteen, she's finished medical school and became a surgical doctor before the age of twenty three. Oh...and have I mentioned she's a virgin? Yep. Seems like all those years studying and working didn't do much for her

Mountain Desire by Vanessa Vale was a fast paced read for me…basically I read it in one sitting. The characters Samantha, Max and Hardin flow together quite well and there is definitely a lot of passion in this book!

Samantha is a child prodigy, working as a surgeon and not really having any interpersonal skills she mistakes Max for a patient and hilarious thing happen. From there she is thrown into a world-wind romance with Max and his best friend Hardin (who certainly looks like a lumberjack in

Vanessa Vale is becoming one of my go to authors when I need something a little different...and by different I mean really steamy with a suspenseful story! I am surprised my kindle hasn’t melted from all the heat from her books!

Book 3 in the series and we have all the familiar characters, but this book focuses on Sam, Mac and Hardin. I will say that one of my least fave tropes is the innocent virgin
Oh boy! This book started with a scene that was so awkward that I laughed until I cried! It was just a foreshadowing of how much I'd enjoy this book! My emotions ran the gamut while reading, from hilarity, to shock, surprise, and even a little anger. There was so much packed into this story, I'm not sure where to start!

Sam is a doctor, but she is also a genius! Breezing through school, then college and med school, she missed so many of the life experiences someone her age has. It makes her a

Dr. Samantha Smyth . . . child prodigy, genius and now ER surgeon. She’s younger than people expect for a surgeon, but she is also inexperienced in romance, never having time for relationships. After a chance encounter with the town mechanics Mac and Hardin, however, Sam’s finally getting attention as a woman, rather than as a genius.

With just one look, Mac and Hardin know that Dr. Sam is the woman for them. They’re willing to give her their love, protection and as much passion as she can

Mountain Desire is the third book in the Wild Mountain Men series, and while the romance stands alone, there’s a lot of references to the previous two books. Samantha is a genius, a doctor, and a virgin, but that doesn’t matter when she meets Mac and Hardin. They want all of her, but will Sam open up enough emotionally to start something real?

I am really enjoying this series! I love the overarching mystery of who the murderer is, but I also love the relationships that form in this small town.

This is the third book in the series and it is filled with heat, wit and suspense. Sam is a prodigy with a superior intellect that allowed her to graduate college and become a doctor by the time she was in her early twenties. After a somewhat grueling shift, she is on her way out when a nurse informs her that there is one last patient to see; an older gentleman who is a bit of a hypochondriac. However, when she arrives, she is taken aback by Mac the gorgeous man waiting for her. The two

Mountain Desire is the same quick steamy goodness I've come to expect every time from Vanessa Vale, but with a twist. There's always a different twist to these stories to keep things interesting.

This time we had the young, inexperienced doctor with the two hot mechanics. I liked that while the leading lady was young and sexually inexperienced, she was smart and strong as well. And you could understand the inexperienced part. It wasn't far-fetched.

Mac and Hardin both brought their own twists to

The characters are well written, they are Dr. Samantha Smyth the smart beautiful young doctor with little to no experience with men. Then you have Mac a local mechanic who appears to be a bit rough and rugged but oh so sexy ...more

This book is intense because of the characters. I adore Sam, shes so naive but sweet and lovely. Mac is some kind of Bad — Boy and Hardin quite the opposite. As in every book by Vanessa Vale, the protas hook up together very soon. I love the sweetness and protectiveness she's telling. Every girl with all her senses together would adore that too. I love this series because there is not only steamy hot insta love but a very suspenseful story about a killer

Holy Wow this book was absolutely incredible! I honestly couldn't put it down! Dr. Samantha Smyth, is a young child genius who is now a ER surgeon. She's sweet, naive, and inexperienced when it comes to romance. Mac is a local mechanic and runs the shop with his friend Hardin, these two are almost too good to be true. After meeting Sam, Mac and Hardin know that she's the one for them. The connection and chemistry between these three is palpable! This is a fast paced read, with intrigue, mystery, ...more

Sweet, smart, sexy, lonely Sam was just keeping to her normal busy work life as a doctor. She made an error with what she thought was a patient. Mac was just humoring the sweet sexy doctor. Then bring in Hardin and you got chemistry that is throwing out major sparks between the three of them. Add in some sexy scenes. A little bit of mystery and danger and you have a fantastic book!

When it comes to her education there is no one more intelligent than Sam, the new doctor who has come to town, but when it comes to men and relationships there is no one more innocent. When she meets Mac for the first time she is not prepared for the feelings he inspires or how protective he is.

Mac and Hardin soon realize that appearances can be deceiving when the flat tire they came to fix was not an accident. When they meet the doctor who owns the car they know that she completes them and now

This is a great addition to the continuing Wild Mountain Men series. When Hardin and Mac see Sam they know she is the one for them. Sam is one of the youngest ever surgeons and because of this, she has had little to no social life and is still a virgin. She finds it hard to believe that these two men together want her but likes the idea. There is danger stalking her and when she is taken, Mac and Hardin, along with the police, rescue her. Erin’s murderer is still on the loose and no one knows ...more

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
This was a great book !
A mistaken identity case leads Sam into a very sexy adventure.
Mac was there to fix a Sam's car tire.
Sam thought that Mac was there for a prostate exam.
One look at Sam, and Mac knew that she was the one for him and his friend Hardin.
However, someone is stalking Sam.
Not to worry, Mac + Hardin will not let anything happen to Sam
Loved the characters + the storytelling !

When Mac and Hardin respond to a call to fix a flat tire for a Dr. Sam Smyth, they’re not expecting Samantha – especially after she’s mistaken Mac for an elderly hypochondriac patient! I enjoyed the almost gentle buildup in the suspense in this book, the clues that might not have been clues, the hints that all is not as it seems with all the characters, and the extremely hot menage scenes. The relationship is more than the menage too, and, despite it being instalove, it’s well written and a ...more

Such a sexy meet-cute/ Another smoking addition this series

—>>> Meeting Dr Samantha Smyth was quite timely for Mac, aside from them getting their wires crossed when they first meet, because the reason he was at the hospital in the first place was to help her with her tires. But it is soon apparent that he and his best friend Hardin would be perfectly willing to pull out all the stops to service her any way she needs … and are just as willing to step up when it is clear she is being

A Vale Disappointment

I usually love all Vanessa Vale books. This book just felt too formulaic. Good girl, bad boys. The whole relationship developed too quickly. Why did the guys seem so pure?.she changed from sheltered virgin to something else in the drop.of a hat. There was no real.mystery to who the bar guy was. I didn't remember the murder from previous books until way into the book.

Not a standalone. Even I'm going to re-read the series from the beginning before I read the best installment.

Way too short. This story had so much potential and really left me flat and annoyed. I discovered Vanessa's books about a year ago. I first read her Montana maiden series and I loved them. They were so hot. I thought I found my new favorite author and I voraciously started reading her other books. Her more recent books are not near as hot. Why do authors do this. As soon as they get a good fan base they change what made you fall in love with them in the first place.

This book was a lot of fun to read I just couldn't put it down. Sam is so awkward and cute and Mac and Hardin are typical manly alpha men. I loved that Sam was inexperienced but willing to go for what she wanted (the guys) and that the guys were dominant and wanted to protect her. The mystery of Erin Mills killer is still driving me nuts and I can't wait to find out who it is in the final book! The end of this book definitely surprised me. I did not see it coming!

If you are looking for a quick, steamy read that will have you falling in love and lust then look no further, you have found it. Mountain Desire is just what you are looking for and then some. I cannot get enough of Vale's sexy alphas and she never fails to give me just what I want.
I loved this one so hard. The first meeting had me falling and laughing and I couldn't put the story down. I highly recommend you go ahead and one-click this one. You won't be sorry!

Ménage Done Right

Vanessa Vale is the best at writing menage romances! You can’t help but imagine yourself as the female filling in a hunky man sandwich. I love the strong female characters, the protective and sexy alpha men, and the stories that draw you in from the very beginning. Even after writing so many menage books, she keeps the stories fresh, unique and full adventure, drama and humor.
Marianela Aybar (Mari Loves Books Blog)
If you’ve been following the Wild Mountain Men Series, you’ll know that there’s a little mystery or suspense involved so it adds to the urgency with the characters. In Mountain Desire, Vanessa gives us a little more information as to the murder in the town with the relationship between Sam, Mac, and Hardin between at the forefront. This is sexy, sweet, and everything you expect from a Vanessa Vale ménage story.

I loved this book so much!
It started out with an hilarious bang!
It kept getting better as it went along! I loved Sam, Mac and Hardin’s story. Mac and Hardin were exactly what Sam needed. They were going to love and protect her. I enjoy the the continuing murder mystery that is woven through out the series! I can’t wait to find out who did it! Once again Vanessa has written a fantastic book in the Wild Mountain Men series! I can’t wait for the next book!

I am loving this series so much..all the couples are hot AF but also I want to really know who is behind the murder..
This story is about the new resident and doc Sam and Mac and Hardin.
These two are as opposite as they come but they want the same woman, a woman who is a genius but also very innocent in all personal relationships.
There are quite a few things going on and I admit I was so engrossed. Loved all the characters and I can't wait for more!

Not the kind of checkup he was looking for
This author sure has a way with words. She took a case of mistaken identity and created it into this relationship that will endure. Thank goodness since there is a stalker on the loose. But with two rough and tumble men to see to her every need Sam couldn’t be safer. I enjoyed watching these three find their way together and I really enjoyed the touch of mystery and danger to the story. I can’t wait to see what the author brings us next.

This is a terrific read! An engaging story line, likable characters, sizzling chemistry, scorching heat, a bit of mystery, drama, intense emotions sweetness and a whole lot of swoon worthy moments are combined into truly delightful book. Sam, Mac and Hardin will all touch your heart and have you rooting for them pretty much from the start. This is my sincere, elective review.
