MAIL ORDER BARON
Brides of Tombstone, Book 3
BY CYNTHIA WOOLF
When her parents died, Molly McGregor did what she needed to survive in New York City all alone. She took a job for a well respected banker, but made a discovery that put her life in danger. Now in 1882 she is fleeing New York for the western frontier, Molly makes the desperate decision to become a mail order bride in Tombstone, Arizona Territory. She doesn’t hope for much, just that her new husband will be strong enough to protect her from the danger she fears will follow.
Ben King was too busy making his fortune in silver to worry about a wife or family. Now he’s rich, well known, owns half the town of Tombstone, and is utterly alone. When his heart becomes entangled with his best friend’s new wife, he decides drastic action is required and contracts a mail order bride. He requests someone plain, someone simple to warm his hearth and home, someone he can be sure won’t rouse his passion or complicate his life. He’s tired of fancy women chasing him for his money, and even more tired of hoping any woman could be different. He doesn’t believe in true love, and doesn’t want the complications that would come with it. He doesn’t have time for complicated. He has an empire to run.
But Molly is a shock to his senses. She doesn’t care about his money or his fame. All she wants from him is a safe haven, security, and a new last name. Ben tries to keep his heart out of danger, but danger seems to be Molly’s middle name. When a rich and powerful enemy chases his beautiful new bride halfway across the country to extract vengeance, Ben discovers his heart is not nearly as cold as he’d hoped. Their passion fires hot, hot enough to kill…more than hot enough to burn them both.

1. What is your name? Do you have a nickname?
Molly McGregor King, no nicknames

I have my husband Ben and our friends, Lizzie and Mal Brandon and Julia and Matt Reynolds.

I have a scar across my face. You’ll have to read the book to find out how I get it.
5. When you’re angry, what do you do? Where do you go? How do you deal with your anger?
Usually I cry. I’m not very good at letting out my anger. I tend to keep it inside.

My children’s antics

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