Interview with Vanessa

What would we find under your bed?

Very large dust bunnies. Those bunnies would be reading some of my older print books as that is where I store my swag, posters and other author paraphernalia.

What was the scariest moment of your life?

Besides the kids getting hurt and almost dying kind of scary, here's a funny one: I hate roller coasters. Hate them. Somehow I ended up on one, the newer kind where your feet dangle. My husband was beside me. As soon as it started going up that long, long, long incline, I panicked. I truly believe people can have a heart attack from fear. If there was an Emergency Stop button I would have pushed it. Needless to say I survived, but my husband told me he'd never seen that kind of look on my face before (and probably since).

Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?

No! I can't. I have too many things going on in my head as it is, adding music only distracts me. I compare it to a fly circling around my head and I want to swat at it because it annoys me.

How long did it take you to write this book?

I write a book a month, so I can say I'm a very, very fast typer! I have an awesome critique group who give me feedback, beta reads and most of all motivation. I also sprint. This means I sit down and just write (kind of like word vomit) for thirty minutes. I list my word count before and after. It's amazing how much you can write when pushed, especially if you have a little bit of a competitive streak and want to write. more words than your friend! 

About the Wildflowers of Montana Series by Vanessa Vale

Follow the eight Lenox sisters through this historical erotic series that's as big and bold as the Montana Sky. 


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.

Follow the eight Lenox sisters through this historical erotic series that's as big and bold as the Montana Sky. The Wildflowers of Montana begins with Rose and her hot, Alpha cowboy.


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.

Follow the eight Lenox sisters through this historical erotic series that's as big and bold as the Montana Sky. The Wildflowers of Montana continues with Hyacinth and her sharpshooting hero.

#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?

About the book:

Adora Leonnte, sister to the Uttoran emperor, endured a year trapped in a nightmarish forced marriage to a Sebboyan prince driven by a sinister prophecy to take her against her will. The war that followed destroyed the small country, but she emerges unbroken…if not unscathed. Safe again in Uttor, she vows to put the horrors she faced behind her and once again become the fearless young woman she was before her abduction.

As fate would have it, her hated kidnapper left her carrying his child, and that is a condition even she cannot wish away. Adora’s enduring hope for romance fades until a blue-eyed, self-possessed foreigner walks back into her life and reawakens feelings promising the erotic delights of which she’s always dreamed.

Vallmer Berringen, the handsome and devout prince of a country allied with conquered Sebboy, has come to Uttor for two reasons: to secure the treaty that will give his country a much needed alliance, and to fulfill his father’s orders to use the occasion to find a suitable bride. Captivated by Adora’s intelligence and courage, Vallmer is torn by the fact she is both pregnant and pagan. Her infamous reputation taints Adora, a woman that a man of his position and faith should never be tempted to woo.

Can he reconcile his vision for his country with his passion for a woman whose spirit sets his blood on fire—but for whom kingdoms have gone to war?


Adora flashed a grin at Vallmer, after which she took careful aim and squeezed the trigger. The dummy wobbled as stuffing flew out from its side. Vallmer lifted an eyebrow.

“I’ve been practicing with one of the gonnes in my keeping,” she confided. She flipped open the pan cover before she tipped back the weapon and held out her hand. “Might I have the powder, and a ball?”

Aware of Vallmer’s scrutiny, she poured powder into the barrel, taking care to use the right amount, and then plucked the round lead ball from his palm. She dropped the ball into the barrel and tamped it into place with the gonne’s rod. “Spanner, please.”

She took the tool from him and used it to give the wheel a quarter turn. A squeeze of priming powder from his bag into the pan, and she was done, closing the pan cover with a flip and lowering the dog against the wheel. The gonne was ready to shoot again. “How did I do?”

“I hope my soldiers are so ready by the time we reach the shores of Benarri.”

Her cheeks warmed with pleasure. “I should have told you Brag showed me how to use one before I left Uttor, but I enjoyed too much the way you were holding me. You…feel so very protective and sincere and, well, I enjoy being protected.”

“Do you?” He took position behind her again and wrapped his arms around her chest, pulling her back against his body.

“Be careful,” she said, “I’m holding a loaded weapon.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Tali Spencer fell in love with writing at an early age and never stopped. Thanks to a restless father, she grew up as a bit of a nomad and still loves to travel whenever she can. Her longest stint in one place was Milwaukee where she went to college, enjoyed a series of interesting careers, and raised three surprisingly well-adjusted sons. 

She later married her true love and put down new roots in Philadelphia, where she lives in an ongoing Italian American family sitcom. At least she’s learned how make good pasta. When not writing, Tali reads everything from sweet goofy romances to medical research, manages her fantasy football team—go Gekkos!—and takes long walks with her loving, if slightly neurotic, poodle.
