  • Historical Cowboy Romance

    Ride the High Lonesome by Roseanne Bittner Outlaw Trail #1 This story grabbed me at the beginning as Kate is watching the lynching of Luke. Would she be able to save him or just grab his things and maybe find salvation in civilization? There was so much potential for Kate and Luke as they both seemed to be survivors, smart, mature and with enough of a backstory (maybe) to make them interesting. I mean, they booth had lived through the Civil War and experienced loss and changes from those losses that made them grow and change. At some point I began to feel that Kate was too wrapped up in the idea that she might be raped or someone might see her body parts or something else that would be improper. Sure, there were some rather scary things that happened to her and some wicked outlaws that nearly got her but still...she seemed to spend a lot of time in her head thinking about what might happen, whether or not Luke might really like her, would Luke come back for her, could he love her, etc. And Luke, he seemed the strong stalwart wise one but they he was derailed into a revenge seeking killer that also could not trust a woman because of...well...because of a woman that did him wrong. So, I have mixed feelings. It was a good book but it could have been a great book if both characters had stayed truer to the strong character I saw in both of them and hadn’t begun to wallow in the angst and push pull of the relationship that developed instead. Did I enjoy this book? Yes...for the most part Would I read more in this series? I would try another book in the series. Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

  • Suspenseful historical western romance.

    Ride the High Lonesome is a western historical romance that is mostly set in the wild country. Being stranded without a way to get around and food/water in this type of place means you are left for dead. The main characters are Kate Winters who is left stranded and defenseless in this outlaw country, and Luke who is being hanged after having his cattle stolen. Kate sees an opportunity to take this dead man's horse and supplies, but when she gets close she sees that the man hanging from the rope isn't dead yet. She does what I hope any person would do in this scenario, and cuts him down. I absolutely loved the development in their relationship. Obviously Kate is hesitant to fully trust this stranger, but she needs him if she wants to survive. I really loved that they were both taking care of each other. Kate is a very strong woman and took care of herself when needed. Luke is a proud and loyal man, but has been hurt in the past and doesn't want to open up his heart again. "Letting herself feel too deeply for Luke would be to toy with the heart, and both of them had hearts that had already been broken by the war." The western historical romance subgenre is one that always feels more than just a romance. Everything around it keeps me entertained and intrigued. There is always hints of suspense and action that elevates the story, and that was also the case for this book. In this wild country all you have is human interaction and it is impossible not to get to know someone very intimately. Which is important, because you are miles apart from civilization and knowing someones intentions is a matter of life and death. The development of the trust that was built between the characters was paced perfectly. It felt very natural. This was also the case for the love that development between them. Both Kate and Luke had their heart broken, but I was happy to see them find each other and heal. I would've wanted a longer epilogue that was set further in the future, but overall I am happy with the ending. I look forward to reading more books in the Outlaw Trail series. Also I can't finish this review without mentioning that I love the cover.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • American Historical Romance

    Kate Winters has spent three days wandering around all alone, after the wagon train she's traveling with is attacked by outlaws and she's the only survivor. She has very little chance of finding help, when by chance she stumbles across a gang hanging a cowboy so they can steal his cattle and she wisely stays hidden. Once they leave she notices the mans legs are still twitching and they didn't do a very good job of trying to hang him! She cuts him down, tends his wounds, he's the only person who can help her get to the closest town, he has a horse and with winter quickly approaching they have no time to waste. Luke Bowden is furious that his cattle have been stolen, he paid good money for them and he's desperate to get them back. He's miles away from the nearest town called Lander, the lady who saved his life is hungry, weak, and she isn't up to traveling. He owes Kate for saving him, he takes her to a near by cave, he leaves her with enough food for three days, the plan is for him to find his cattle, sell them, kill the men who stole them and return for for her. Ride The High Lonesome is set in the Wyoming Territory in the Rocky Mountain Foothills, it's wild, rugged country and the weather is very unpredictable. Kate is a widow her husband and father died fighting in the Civil War and Luke fought in the Civil War. Both have pasts, Luke's is more complicated, he's a bit wild like the high country, is Luke ready to settle down and can two people meet by chance make a future together? It's been years since I have read a Western Historical Romance, this one is rather steamy, Kate and Luke certainly had some serious chemistry going on between them, it's a quick book to read, action packed and I gave it four stars.
