About 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 2000, 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.

I received the Tamed series boxed set from the author in exchange for an honest review. This book is the second title of that series, but can be read as a stand alone without any cliffhangers. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every title of this series and heartily recommend them all to any reader who is a fan of great storytelling, especially in historical western romance. Now,if for some reason, I was forced to name a favorite title in this series, Tame a Wild Wind, would be it. I love action packed, suspenseful, historical western romances that also have memorable children characters, and this one comes with two. The heroine, Cassie O'Malley, is a widow with a two year old daughter Sarah and a nine year old son R. J.. The relationship that develops between the hero Sam and Cassie's children is both humorous and heartwarming. These are 9yr old R.J.'s comments after being thanked by Sam for sharing his concerns about Sam's intentions and feelings toward his mama, Cassie. "I gotta watch out for my women folk, 'cause until ya marry Mama, I'm the man of the family, and I gotta tell ya, I won't mind going back to just bein' a kid." The entire series features memorable characters and great stories that you'll want to read again and again.

This was a very good book, could not put it down. Cassie is a very independent woman but Sam shows her that independence is not everything in life. Enjoyed this book greatly.

I loved this powerful funny romance. The author brings you a story of pain and losing the one you love along with sorrow of starting over. She gives you a look at the past and the hard life of living in the west along with some funny good times. I just loved Cassie daughter she keeps you laughing out loud at her innocent comments which are priceless. Two people who are attacked to each other one willing to give love another try the other to afraid of losing someone the love. Cassie is a sweetheart just trying to make a living after her husband died it has been hard to carry on. She has kept the ranch running by selling horses to the army and doing what she loves with is raising and training race horses. She needs a new foreman and Sam is just the ticket that is until sparks start flying and they can’t keep their hands off each other. Sam has not had an easy life he was a Texas Ranger until that life took the life of his family. He hunted the man down who killed his family in cold blood and watched him hang. There isn’t a day that goes by he doesn’t think about his time with the rangers and all he lost. He is a trouble soul just taking life one day at a time. That is until Cassie and her family came into his life. He now has a reason to carry on and a woman to court only she isn’t letting him but that isn’t stopping the cowboy. Lia Frederick as the narrator did a wonderful job I love her many voices. The male ones were just as great as her female ones. The one I loved the most of Sarah Cassie’s daughter she truly out did herself there. There are not background noises or break in the audio just a wonderful clean and clear audio which you will enjoy from start to finish. She puts feeling and emotion in her audios never leaving you guessing how each character feels. You can hear the pain, sorrow, passion in her voice she has a very calm smooth voice which is easy to listen to. She truly made this an audio to enjoy. The author brings you a painful story which will touch your heart. Characters you can relate to as well as ones you will fall in love with. There was only one part that I was really unsure with the time in history the author wrote about. It did make it an interesting read that I really enjoyed. I loved the humor the author bought to the story along with suspense. She gives you a book you do not want to put down. This is a book full of passion with some twist and turns at the finest. I always look forward to reading Ms. Woolf’s book I know there will a story full of surprises and passion. This is the second book in this series it is hard to pick which one I liked the best each have wonderful plots. I can’t wait for the next one in the series. If you are looking for a book that is entertaining full of surprises and passion set in the west of years long ago with wonderful characters you can relate to you have found the author to give you this.
