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.
5-10 Things Everything a Historical Erotic Western Should Have:
- Lots of very steamy, very hot sex. On a scale of one to ten, I’d say a ten. This isn’t Historical Western. This is Historical EROTIC Western. There are so many sweet books from this time period, even Inspirational, that don’t have any sex in them, have it behind ‘closed doors’ or just a kiss at the end of the book. If someone’s picking up an Erotic book from this time period, they want the heat and lots of it.
- Modestly dressed women. Why? Because they tempt the hero so much more and he will get to unwrap her. If he’s hot for the inside of her wrist, a peek at her ankle or even one button undone at her neck, then imagine how wild he’ll be once the dress comes off.
- Larger than life cowboys. All genres of romance and erotic make the hero larger than life. In the erotic world, we can add the pun about also referring to his manly parts in this statement, but that, too, also applies to other genres. A cowboy needs to be able to rope a cow, ride a horse, ford a raging river, shot a villain and bed his wife without breaking a sweat. He’s like a Boy Scout, James Bond and Brad Pitt from Legends Of The Fall rolled into one. There’s nothing he can’t do to protect her. There’s nothing he won’t do to pleasure her (and he knows how to do it all).
- An unforgettable world. I lived in the Wild West of Montana for a long time and fell in love with the area. I can’t imagine being a woman back in the old days—doing laundry in a cauldron and the freezing temperatures and the mud…without birth control or deodorant. I shudder. But I love the FANTASY that time has, the allure of a cowboy protecting and cherishing you. It’s the ultimate claiming. But none of that can happen unless the world the author builds is reasonably authentic. No hay bales for barn sex since they didn’t exist back then. Lots of cast iron stoves and horses. Open prairies. Even the use of items from the time in intriguing ways. Who uses a sock darner today? I think everyone just chucks a sock with a hole in it and drives to Target for more. Back then, socks needed to be mended. So why not use the sock darner as a fun toy for a bout of sex? (See my book, The Cowboy) It allows the reader to embrace the time period, sink into the fantasy of the story and time period.
- Honor. I truly believe that the social values of the time have to come through in a book, even an erotic book. While Erotic means you are giving your readers lots and lots of steamy sex, it doesn’t mean you have to devalue it or lower the personal values of your characters. Back in the 1880’s, people didn’t just have pre-marital sex and get away with it. Perhaps with widows or at a brothel, but a man didn’t bed a woman he planned to marry on the first date. There weren’t any one-night-stands. It wasn’t the way it was. While my books have tons and tons of sex, it’s ALL marriage sex. There isn’t barely even a kiss before marriage in any of them. Why? Because I want the hero to be honorable, to WANT the heroine enough to marry her. He might want to claim her six ways to Sunday, but he’s committing to do that for the rest of his life. My heroines only want honorable men. She might know how much he wants her, perhaps he’s even told her all the naughty things he’s going to do, but she knows that he values her enough to put a ring on it. So while there’s tons of steamy, tawdry, even boundary-pushing sex, it’s not gratuitous and no reader is contemplating that the hero will be going to bed someone else later on.
