Emily Loring survived the last few years as a governess to a rich family's children. But when the lord of the house can't keep his hands to himself, she's left with no option but to risk everything as a mail-order bride. Raised in a New York orphanage, she's always dreamed of a husband and children of her own, but even that small dream always felt out of reach. The city is all she's ever known, but the promise of a family, a place to call home, drives her to risk everything and head for the wilds of the Colorado Territory, and the arms of a stranger. Ben Logan fell in love once, to a city girl who left him at the altar to run off with another man. A mail-order bride appears to be the answer to his need for a wife to warm his bed, as long as she loves the country life as he does. He doesn't need much, but he won't risk his heart again. When Emily arrives, her curves tempt him nearly as much as her smile. But his ex-fiancée is back, and determined to have Ben for herself, even if it means murder...

About the Author

Cynthia Woolf is the award winning and best-selling author of twenty-two 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.

Writing as CA Woolf she has six scifi, space opera romance titles. She calls them westerns in space.

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

It was a good story but a little infantile

Ms. Woolf always knows how to entertain with style, romance, and excitement as she pulls her readers in giving you characters that feel like family, a plot that has a few twists, with vivid details that make you feel you are a part of her story. In her latest release Colorado Bride she gives you a story you can sink your eyes in pulling you in giving you a few smiles, and a little pull on your heartstrings as you turn the pages with a story that hooks you that you won’t be able to put down. Emily life has not always been easy she was raised in an orphanage doing her best to make the best life for herself. She loves children and becomes a governess only to lose it when the children’s father can’t keep his hands to his self. She has always dreamed of having a family of her own. With her being jobless she has little options she decided it was time for her to start that family being a mail order bride. Ben just can’t get a break in the love department and isn’t really looking for love since his was left at the altar by the women he gave his heart to. He longs for a family with children of his own. There is only one way to get them he must have a wife someone he can hopefully be friends with but there isn’t any way he will give his heart away again. He decides the best thing for him to do is get a mail order bride. The author pulls you in with mystery, revenge, suspense, and a mother in law from hell. Let’s not forget the ex is back and she has her sights on Ben. Nothing will get in her way of having what she wants. She will get Ben even if she must kill to make that happen. Ms. Woolf spends a compelling read with vivid details hooking the read from the first page. The plot and the characters keep you spellbound making this a page turn keeping you in suspense with hold your breath moments that keep you on the edge. This is a very intense read with wonderful characters you can relate to. She gives you passion, chemistry that really has a strong pull but keeps it a clean read that really pulls you in. From the first moment that Ben and Emily meet you can feel the pull of attraction but neither is willing to admit it. There are a few surprising twists at the end you are going to love along with an epilogue that just leaves you smiling. Ms. Woolf is one of my go to authors when I want a little inspiration mixed with excitement and suspense with a story that holds my attention that I know will be very entertaining. I love the plot, characters and all the twists that come with this story.

I enjoyed the story a lot but wasn't too thrilled with the sexual content. That aside the story was fun and very good. I really liked the characters of Ben and Emily. Emily is almost a saint to be able to put up with Bens' mother. I received an ebook copy from the author no I gave this review of my own free will.

Really enjoyed this story and characters especially more peeks into the town and happenings. Ebook from authors copy . Opinions are entirely my own for review.

Cynthia Woolf has crafted a wonderfully romantic historical western featuring a mail order bride. An intriguing story filled with suspense, murderous intent, and jealousy! Emily Loring and Ben Logan may be a match made in heaven, according to the matchmaker, but they'll go thru hell before having a chance at their HEA. This gripping story is a wonderful addition to the Matchmaker & Co. series, and can be read as a stand alone; but trust me, you'll want to read every exciting book in this unforgettable series! I received a copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are my own.

Logan's fiancée left him at the alter. She ran away with another man. He is done with love and decided that he might as well get a mail-order bride so he can have the family he wants without the emotion that goes with it. He sure doesn't believe in love anymore. Emily was just fired from her governess job because her employer decided that she should be more than the governess. When his wife saw him, of course it was Emily's fault. She went to stay with her friend who is running the mail-order bride business in New York. She is sure that Emily would be perfect for Logan. As Emily and Logan start their new life together, they have to fight a crazy mother, a kidnapping and an ex who wants Logan back. Will Logan ever be able to love Emily or will she have to leave him so she isn't in a loveless marriage?
