    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.
