What A Jouney The Author Takes You On!

I loved this story. It has it all, a lot of suspense twists, intrigue and romance. The author even included an epilogue, which I loved. The character's were very believable , caring and feisty. Also, you will feel an attachment to the secondary character's too.

I loved that there was a little back story about Indians, that added a nice touch to the story.

There isn't a cliffhanger -yea! The lovemaking is sensual, descriptive in a way that will warm you on a cold night. You can feel there passion.

This isn't the type of book I usually read, but will add this author to my favorite lists. (Ljb)

if only

The story was very interesting and fairly well written. If only she had omitted the crude names of a man's anatomy and also all the pages of explicit bedroom scenes

    O.K. Read

    Tame a Wild Heart by Cynthia Woolf is a historical romance set in Colorado in the 1880s. I enjoyed reading Woolf's romantic western but overall I felt that there were several missing pieces to the story. The beginning of the novel felt abrupt and choppy at times. I found it interesting that Catherine and Duncan had some prior history with one another but I felt like Woolf could've played it up a little more. I think it would've helped with the intimate moments between the two characters. As a reader I kind of felt thrown into the middle of the relationship from the beginning and at that point, I had no reason to care or desire for the two characters to be with one another. I do think Woolf did a great job with the book's overall tone and setting. The story line is good, I just think it needs some minor work. Overall, I enjoyed reading Woolf's Tame a Wild Heart, romantic westerns are my favorite.

    Confusing

    In the beginning there was this very strong woman an the every few pages she's bursting into tears. I have read many a book of this genre and so I'm confused as to what came over her. I wondered if it was specific to the time but I know those women were strong and they evaluated a situation form a position of strength and delt with it accordingly.
    I don't mind the sex scenes, I suppose they sell books. I even found the part about the male anatomy quite funny. The story did move fast but there's nothing there! Nothing of substance. Just that he couldn't bring himself to say " I love you". That was the angst that drags on throughout the book.
    Thank you for the free book , it helps me decide whether I would buy a book by that author.
    Sorry but i wouldn't spend good money or time over books by this author

    I read lots of Nook romances and like the Western stories almost

    I read lots of Nook romances and like the Western stories almost as much as the military black ops books. This book was a good read with lots of characters and action. I, too, enjoyed the "book within a book" and all the attention to historical detail.
