Be swept away by the romance of old Hawaii.
On the run for a crime she did not commit and abandoned by all who should cherish her, Agnes Todd has learned the hard way not to trust anyone. After finding refuge on a remote island ranch five thousand miles from her homeland, Agnes hopes for a new life free from fear and judgment—hard to come by for a single mother in 1905. Armed with only her wits and her grandmama’s pearl-handled pistols, she’s become rather skilled at protecting herself and her young son, Johnny.
But when her pursuers catch up with her, she must flee again—straight up the side of an ancient volcano and right into the arms of George Lang, a gentle giant of a man with a gift for fixing things. That is, everything but his own fractured heart. Will Agnes and her pistols blaze their way into his love?
A prequel to Katherine Kayne’s award-winning Bound in Flame, this sharpshooting novella revisits the early lives and hard-won romance of two beloved characters.
Available to pre-order on Amazon and coming soon to Kindle Unlimited.
About the Author
Award Winning Author Katherine Kayne writes the sort of romantic fantasy she has always liked to read in her own beach chair. With horses and hula and magic and flowers and happily ever after… with heroines to cheer for and heroes strong enough to follow their heroine’s lead. Her debut novel, Bound in Flame, is inspired by the horsewomen of Hawai‘i in the early 1900s. After seeing her first pa‘u princess riding in a King Kamehameha Day parade, Kayne was hooked. She spent five years of research and work with Hawai‘i Island’s pa‘u riding community to get her story right. Bound in Flame is the first book of a planned series, the Hawaiian Ladies’ Riding Society.
Kayne resides in Seattle and counts herself fortunate to live in Hawaii a part of each year. Sadly, at this stage of her life, she is horseless as she has not figured out how to stuff one under her airplane seat. Her two dogs and a very understanding husband have had to suffice.
