Adam Talbot has his life planned out, and that plan does not include a wife. So why does one woman occupy his mind night and day? He is being trusted to deliver a group of mail-order brides from Massachusetts all the way to the Washington Territory. Karen is one of them. She's beautiful, smart and has two young children that should scare Adam off faster than an angry rattlesnake.

He was burned at the alter, left standing with his heart broken and the whole world laughing when his fiancee eloped with his best friend. A woman is more trouble than he needs. But he's the moth and she's the flame. He knows he's going to get burned. But allowing her to marry another is out of the question. And when a deranged woman from Karen's past threatens the soft-hearted woman he can't help but fall in love with--and her two precious little ones--Adam discovers that walking through fire doesn't burn anymore, not if it gets him what he really needs...his own family.

About the Author

Cynthia Woolf is the award winning and best-selling author of thirty-four 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.

Despite the intriguing description, this author falls short when delivering historic details and authentic dialogue. At one point, a character says, "Let's get this party started," which is not a 19th century phrase. The main character is supposed to have attended medical school, but falls short of finishing due to her marriage to another medical school student. It was not common for women to attend a co-educational medical school, but there were three that existed by the 1860's. Also, this book is supposed to take place in Seattle not long after it was established. Seattle was founded in 1851. Asa Mercer did bring 100 brides to Seattle in two trips starting in 1864. While some of the details were researched, the author could included more substance to make the time period seem more authentic.

I have really enjoyed this series and will be sorry to see it end. Adam and Karen would be really good together if Adam would just show some interest. Adam is so good with kids and Karen isn't sure if he just doesn't want a ready made family or if he just isn't interested. Adam was jilted and hasn't trusted women since. Just when Karen thinks they are moving forward, Adam does something that sets their relationship back. When danger comes to her door, Adam is there and ready to protect his new family at all costs.
