I love the old west, the cowboys and Indian days. I felt Ms. Burke’s captured the setting and had a wonderful plot. She brought to life one of the best times in history with a nice wonderful romance story of trust, passion, when women were little more than there not allowed to do or have a say. The character of Kate was a wonderful strong character who wouldn’t take no for an answer and worked her way to get what she wanted by giving up something she thought she wanted but found wasn’t important ...more

I love western historical romance, they are so interesting and fun to read. ! I have read this novella Kate’s Outlaw, but had forgotten to write a review for it. I love what this author has written. E. E. Burke has started the Steam! Romance and Rails series. I enjoyed very much this western historical novel. I loved her characters. I also enjoyed her 2nd book The Bodyguard, and I’m excited to read her third book Her Passion’s prize!

Kate's Outlaw is an eye opener to what our Native American ancestors really loved and honored, their heritage and land. EE Burke has written a very endearing book which makes one stop and think of the hardships that were forced on the Indians. Loved this book!!!

I read this in the Hearts Ablaze boxed set. I really enjoyed this historical as I was taken back to the time when trains where forging paths across the west. These stories are always a fun way for me to relearn history as I am entertained with romance, passion, and some supense thrown in too.

Kate's Outlaw is a really good book. Shorter than I would like, but that's all up to the author. It is a historical romantic fiction book. Set in the time when the railroad is trying to get permission from the Indian tribes in Indian Territory.

Kate would like her father to take her seriously, she knows she's Not the son that her father always wanted, but why can't he accept her accomplishments & let her help in his business. He owns a railroad.

Kate is unconventional. She wants to run her father's railroad some day, but knows it will never happen. He is too old fashioned for that and he just wants her to get married and have grandchildren for him, preferably boys. But Kate still hopes. She is trying to find some kind of resolution for the problem they are having getting the railroad through Indian territory. All of a sudden she is kidnapped by Jake and his cousin. Jake really didn't want to do it, but his cousin wanted to just kill her ...more

I liked this which was surprising to me because I had never read this genre before. I was intrigued because I have hiked and road bikes on the current KATY trail. Was interesting and I may have to pick up another in this series- EE burke made me curious as to historicals and romance genre's.

Wish they were labeled better on AMAZON- wasn't sure which was book2?

I want to read the one I heard only parts of before it was finished-
Think that is #3

Write ON! I will be watching for more from this Autho

Kate’s Outlaw by E.E.Burke
This book was a fine representation of the trials our Native Americans have experienced and the injustice they have encounters by the white men. Take that animosity on both side and throw in a love story of a rich white woman and a half white half native and you have a fully package narrative. This book carried a lessen to be learn then and now. I would sincerely recommend this read.

E.E. Burke is an exciting new voice in American Historical Fiction.

I really enjoyed this novella about the building of the railroads that would cross our country and open up a route through the wild west. If you love historical fiction you will enjoy this romance between Kate, the daughter of a railroad baron and Jake, the Indian she meets and can't forget.
