About the Author

Cynthia Woolf is the award winning and best-selling author of thirty-three historical western romance books and two short stories with more books on the way.

Cynthia loves writing and reading romance. Her first western romance Tame A Wild Heart, was inspired by the story her mother told her of meeting Cynthia’s father on a ranch in Creede, Colorado. Although Tame A Wild Heart takes place in Creede that is the only similarity between the stories. Her father was a cowboy not a bounty hunter and her mother was a nursemaid (called a nanny now) not the ranch owner. The ranch they met on is still there as part of the open space in Mineral County in southwestern Colorado.

She also has six scifi, space opera romance titles. She calls them westerns in space.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and her great friends and critique partners for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

Centauri Dawn begins on Earth, with Audra Cantwell having a beautiful dream about a beautiful man, only to wake up to find him standing over her bed! He tells her that she is actually Princess Dayanara of Centauri and he has come to whisk her away to her home world so she can be crowned queen. Obviously, this is a little hard for Audra to swallow, so she turns to her mother. Her parents only have enough time to confirm that this man- Darius Coridian- is telling the truth before they're attacked and Audra is transported to a starship orbiting the planet. Audra learns that she must take the throne-and marry Darius's brother Anton- in order to save her planet from the tyrannical rule of her Uncle Slavarian. With the fate of an entire planet full of people in her hands, Audra is torn. She is duty-bound to marry Anton Coridian, but she is falling in love with his brother Darius. When Audra finds out that her nightmare could actually be a prophecy, she is determined to do whatever it takes to keep her family safe and claim the throne. Darius Coridian has the power to know his lifemate the second he lays eyes on her, and unfortunately for him, she is betrothed to his brother. He sets course to Centauri and concentrates on teaching Audra about the planet she knows nothing about. No matter how much it hurts, he cannot have his lifemate. He must get her to Centauri to marry his brother before it is too late. The further I got into the story, the more I liked Audra- her strength and sarcastic wit are traits I can see in my best friends. She is a very believable and likeable character. Darius is a hunk of deliciousness, which is what we all read these books for, but he has a depth that many Man-Hunks don't always have. Slaverian, the bad guy, was everything a sadistic tyrant should be. His sick and twisted mind was always working to further his goal. I loved the relationship between Audra and Darius. Slavarian has everything I love in a villain. Secondary characters are a big part of why I love books, and Centauri Dawn delivers. Ms. Woolf introduces Captain Garrick, Kitari, and of course Maggie and Ray.

Great concept. Interesting read. Love sci fi romance. But it needs a good edit and tightening. I found myself skimming and then having to go back and re-read. Cool world, nice romance.
