It's been a very long time since I've read a real western novel so I thought I'd give this one a try when Black Lion Virtual Books presented it to me. I'm glad I did. It took me on a nostalgic trip to my younger days...John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara...old western movies and when times were simpler and love was love.
Cynthia Woolf is a born storyteller in the old-fashioned sense. She's one who knows how to grip you from the first pages and carry you through without giving you a minute to draw your breath. I literally read this book in one sitting. It moves in lightening speed!
Her plot is not complicated but her main characters are. Rosie is a woman any of us would be proud to know and call a role model. Tom's sexiness bleeds through... I liked him, lots!!!
While this is not a book with a serious story line or a deep secret to tell, it is; nevertheless, very entertaining to read. As I said above, it took me on a very happy trip to my younger days and I liked that.
For lovers of Harlequin Romance novels set in the west, this is the perfect book!
3 stars for a fun read.

I haven't read a Western in a while and thought this would be a good change of pace. I was not disappointed.
Tame a Wild Bride is the third book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the other 2 books, so I don't have any back story. However, I had not trouble keeping pace with the characters or the story line.
Tame a Wild Bride is the story of Rosie, a mail order bride, escaping from her city life to claim a life of her own. True to the way of life in the early Western days, Tame a Wild Bride shows the hardships, trials, and joys of frontier life. At the same time, Rosie and Tom discover feelings and a love for each other.
Ms. Woolf does a wonderful job of showing the struggles of frontier life as well as developing a story line that follows a good Western movie: hardships, characters that struggle, a mystery to be solved, and a family that learns to love. Rosie and Tom's story pulled at my heartstrings and delivered great steamy, love scenes. Makes me wish for my own cowboy.
