Ed Talbot isn't husband material. He's an outlaw, was forced into his father's gang at the age of thirteen, and is wanted Dead or Alive in more than one territory. But now his father is dead, he hates the life, the blood, and his brother's rages. When a stagecoach robbery goes awry, Ed ends up with a satchel full of charming letters from an enticing young miss. Unfortunately for Miss Lizzie Cobb, her betrothed is now dead, and Ed Talbot sees a way out. Impersonating a fine, upstanding young man shouldn't be too difficult. Despite the risks, falling in love with her proves to be all too easy.

Isolated on her mother's ranch just outside of Tombstone, Miss Lizzie Cobb doesn't have the time or the means to find a respectable husband. As a half Apache woman in the Arizona Territory, being a mail order bride seems like the only solution to her problem until she realizes that San Francisco is too far away, and she'll have to leave her vulnerable mother and baby brother behind. Her solution? Call off the wedding.

When her groom shows up on her doorstep, she's shocked. He's handsome, strong, and has traveled hundreds of miles to claim her. His kisses inflame her body and his presence soothes her soul. Falling for the rugged man is beyond her control. But the past has a way of catching up to outlaws, and facing the truth is going to be hard...for both of them.

About the Author

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

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.

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 really liked this novel. It has suspense excitement of real Western drama infused with romance. I'm glad the intimate scenes were not hardcore. The book only had 119 pages . It could have had a little more substance. Simone24

Poor writing, editing and just an overall lack of creativity. The language was unnecessary and I can't imagine anyone with even average reading skills finding this a good read.

This read like a summary of a story, not fleshed or enough and kind of immature. Hard to get involved with any of the characters

Lizzie and Mal(Ed) seem so real. They have a rough road but it just goes to show that if you trust our Creator and love each other, everything will work out for the good.

This book had a lot of promise- but it was like somebody published the rough draft instead of the final copy. The characters were lovable, but lacked depth. The plot had promise, but was poorly orchestrated. The description was forced and most action was told to the reader, not shown. I didn't even make it through the whole book. Sorry to sound harsh - like I said, it was as if the book wasn't finished yet.

I loved this book from start to finish. Can't really go wrong with a western. When I first saw the book I wasn't too sure what to expect but this was a great read. I didn't want to put it down.

The premise seemed cute but like a lot of other reviews say, it seemed like a rough draft. No depth to the characters, no "spark" that I could sense. Would have enjoyed it (and possibly finished it) if there were more substance.

This story was predictable as to the outcome, but an enjoyable read. The story line was well conceived and written. It was a short story and could have benefited from a more information on a few of the characters, but overall a very good effort by the author.
