Meet the Author

Cynthia Woolf was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in the mountains west of Golden. She spent her early years running wild around the mountain side with her friends.

Their closest neighbor was one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.

Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. She wrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she liked at the time.

She worked her way through college and went to work full time straight after graduation and there was little time to write. Then in 1990 she and two friends started a round robin writing a story about pirates. She found that she missed the writing and kept on with other stories. In 1992 she joined Colorado Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America. Unfortunately, the loss of her job demanded the she not renew her memberships and her writing stagnated for many years.

In 2001, she saw an ad in the paper for a writers conference being put on by CRW and decided she'd attend. One of her favorite authors, Catherine Coulter, was the keynote speaker. Cynthia was lucky enough to have a seat at Ms. Coulter's table at the luncheon and after talking with her, decided she needed to get back to her writing. She rejoined both CRW and RWA that day and hasn't looked back.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

    It's been a very long time since I've read a real western novel

    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.

    Ye gods.........................................................

    Ye gods..............................................................
    This plot is so old it has mold on it.   Rosie is a mail order bride who gets married the day she steps off the train.   Then he tells her that though he eventually will have sex with her --or as he says ef her -it will not be anytime soon .  So even though he thinks she is the most beautiful women he has ever seen and she keeps trying to seduce him they don't have sex  until  after 200 boring  pages.  Then it turns out he is the worlds greatest lover.  On who was he practicing.   His bimbo wife refused to have sex with him for years before she left him for a traveling salesmen.  I don't get how 2 young healthy people who are wildly attracted to each other live together for months and don't get it on.  But it seems to be a recurring western theme. Frankly I would question that if I were in the heroines shoes.  Of course she was exhausted because he worked her like a slave.  His exact words by the way.  That's always attractive in a man.  Stupid story.  Doesn't even deserve 1 star.

    I highly recommend you read this western romance. Cynthia Woolf

    I highly recommend you read this western romance. Cynthia Woolf wrote a beautiful story with strong characters, a great story line that keeps you focused and not wanting to put the book down. The author makes you feel like you are right there in the story, you want to reach out and grab this handsome cowboy! I don't want to give anything away, so you have to read it for yourself. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.

    Enjoyed it very much - easy, fun read.

    I don't read many western books but thoroughly enjoyed this one. It wasn't a new plot but the characters in it had depth and struggles to get through before they could have their happy ever after.

    Hey, January 18th. If you want a different story line with every book you read, write you own. JS

    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.
