Steam! Romance and Rails

Redbird, Book 2

A rich, white heiress. A Cherokee outlaw. They have nothing in common except a desire for peace—and each other.

Railroad heiress Kate Parsons is worth more than an inheritance, and se intends to prove it by resolving a land dispute between the Katy Railroad and the Cherokee Nation. Instead, she gets abducted by outlaws.

Jake Colston has something to prove, too, which is why he breaks into a private railcar in a scheme to save his family’s land. Instead, the peace-loving Cherokee ends up in possession of a white woman whose spirit is as bold as her red hair. His decision to abduct her is made with the best intentions, but it puts into motion a series of deadly consequences that force Jake into a confrontation he would do anything to avoid. Anything, except risk the life of the woman he calls Redbird.

A captivating, cross-cultural love story set against the historical backdrop of a standoff between a rampaging railroad and the Cherokee Nation during America’s Age of Steam.

This story was originally released as a novella under the title Kate’s Outlaw. It has been expanded into a novel with additional content and research notes.

Brigit Stevens has worked undercover for ten years, putting criminals like Jasper behind bars.

She offers Jasper a deal if he will guide her to an outlaw stronghold where even lawmen don’t dare to go.
