Sabine Starr | Escape to the Old West!


Good guys chasing bad guys. Bad guys chasing good guys. They're all armed with pistols, rifles and knives while sporting devil-may-care attitudes. Throw in the ladies doing their own chasing and saving lives while wearing (attractive) skirts and matching (lethal) accessories. Mix all this with lawless Delaware Bend, Texas, and even more lawless Indian Territory in the 1880s and you've got suspense, mystery and heightened emotions. Romance ups the ante.

In LADY GONE BAD, a saloon singer called Lady consorts with outlaws to get a lead on her parents' murderers. Rafe, Deputy U.S. Marshal, arrives in town to arrest her. Instead, his name ends up on a Wanted Poster. Together, they escape into Indian Territory to clear their names and hunt down murderous desperados.

In ANGEL GONE BAD, Angel is a dime novelist determined to save a friend kidnapped by outlaws. She enlists the help of Rune, an Anti-Horse Thief Detective (, hot on the trail of a notorious bandit. They brave the wilds of Indian Territory and an outlaw gang’s hideout for justice.

In BRIDE GONE BAD, Tempest is after her no-count groom. He left her at their wedding reception and stole her grandma’s life savings. She doesn't want him back, but she’s vowed to get the money. She hooks up with Lucky, a gun-slinging archeologist, who is determined to stop an outlaw gang's theft of Mound Builder antiquities in Indian Territory.

In BELLE GONE BAD, Belle is a bounty hunter with a plan. She's after the bushwhackers who killed her father and fiancé. Mercy, a sculptor of sensuous nudes, enlists her help to track a kidnapped friend. They join forces to hunt down dangerous outlaws in Indian Territory.

Re: Sabine Starr | Escape to the Old West!

No. I couldn't handle the little woman mentality or the hot
dresses. ;-)
(Karin Anderson 9:50am May 19, 2014)

I could not handle living in the old west, Im too spoiled on my "creature comforts"!
(Julie Parrish 12:05pm May 19, 2014)

No thank you! I enjoy reading books about that period of time but prefer the present.
(Anna Speed 12:22pm May 19, 2014)

I am not sure I would be able to survive that time period.
Yes it was exciting in its own way, but I have grown
accustomed to the conveniences of today. If I was asked
about another time period I would have to say the same
thing. Thank you but ONLY if I can have my running water and
electricity and etc. LOL
(Tina Ullrich 2:44pm May 19, 2014)

No, I don't think I could survive in another time period with my health problems. Also, I don't like the thought of women just being chattel.
(Cathy Phillips 8:34pm May 19, 2014)

I would like to see what it was like, but honestly do not know if I could have lived that way...
(Colleen Conklin 9:31pm May 19, 2014)

Only in books! I'd like to visit, but I know I'd be a
seriously rebellious woman if I were stuck in that time. :-)
(Glenda Martillotti 1:03am May 20, 2014)

no i wouldnt
(Denise Smith 7:14am May 20, 2014)

yes I think it was a more simpler time!
(Ron Frampton 7:50am May 20, 2014)

The old west would be fun to visit but not to live in.
(Pam Howell 10:24am May 20, 2014)

I am to use to technology to survive in the old west. If I didn't know any better than yes bring it on!
(Denise Austin 2:25pm May 20, 2014)

I think I would've liked it. I loved roughing it and traipsing around the deserts and mountains as a kid. My great grandparents settled parts of Arizona and I loved hearing their stories.

I love reading your books - you bring the old west alive.
(Kathleen Baldwin 3:12pm May 20, 2014)

I love this series! I've now read them all and enjoyed each one. What's next for Sabine? When is your next series coming out?
(Sylvia McDaniel 3:16pm May 20, 2014)

Bad guys chasing good guys?? Wow! That's about all you really need to know!
(Lisa Hutson 3:25pm May 20, 2014)

What great comments! Yep, there's a lot to be said for electricity and running water. Plus, those side-saddles had to be torture, although I always give good excuses for my heroines to ride a regular saddle. On the other hand, like Ron, Kathleen and Lisa, there was the amazing freedom and wide open spaces, even for women, during that time. Glenda, you'd join the ranks of all the seriously rebellious ladies who went West to seek their fortunes.
(Sabine Starr 4:08pm May 20, 2014)

Sylvia, I'm so happy you're enjoying my Gone Bad Series. I love your novels, too. I'm looking forward to your upcoming bounty hunters series. "Darlings & Desperados" is my next Old West series set in Texas.
(Sabine Starr 4:16pm May 20, 2014)

(Sabine Starr 4:36pm May 20, 2014)

Kathleen, thanks for reading my books. I love your novels, too. You peel back the ages with your light-hearted, heart-warming Regency Romances.
(Sabine Starr 4:39pm May 20, 2014)

I love going there in your wonderful books,but I'm too much of
a creature comfort and internet gal!
(Michele Thompson 9:57pm May 20, 2014)

I wouldn't mind the dresses, but hauling water, chopping
wood, lack of medical care? I like today's like much
better. I remember visiting my grandma in the hills of NC
and helping her to churn butter, cook on a wood burning
stove, trying to bathe in a little tin tub, believe me, the
modern conveniences cannot be trivialized!
(Marcia Berbeza 11:13pm May 20, 2014)

No, I would not like to live in the old west. I really love my air-conditioning and allergy medicine.
(Laura Gullickson 11:53pm May 20, 2014)

Love meetin new authors and hot dang I love them cowboys too!
(Kim Cornwell 7:35am May 21, 2014)

Oh and yes I would love to live in the old west! I believe I lived there in
another life!
(Kim Cornwell 7:37am May 21, 2014)

no i wouldnt but i have been interested in the old west what
life was like and how they got by i know life then is alot
different now then it was then
(Denise Smith 9:37am May 21, 2014)

Looking forward to reading this book and love the cover!!!
(Bonnie Capuano 10:03am May 21, 2014)

Cool exxcerpts!
I don't think I'd have the patience to put up with the attitudes about women in the old west. The lifestyles & culture is interesting but it definitly was a mans world.

Mindy :)
(Mina Gerhart 10:34am May 21, 2014)

I love stories about cowboys, they are so sexy in their jeans and cowboy hats!
(Nancy Wolfe 11:56am May 21, 2014)

I'm loving all these terrific comments. Kim, you're a standout wanting to live in the Old West. Wish I could hear more about your other life there. Now that'd be an adventure. I told me editor about how this was shaping up, pro and con. She said y'all must be getting all your adventures in my Gone Gad Series. Now there's a supportive editor for you!
(Sabine Starr 4:27pm May 21, 2014)

Michele, I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying my books. Marcia, what an amazing experience at your grandma's house. I bet you learned a lot and really appreciate all our current comforts. Elaine, hope you like my spin on the Old West. I base my stories on my heritage, including lots of tall tales from feisty ladies and gentlemen. Kim and Nancy, I totally agree about sexy cowboys. Denise, I'm also fascinated about life in the past and how it reflects on the present. What I find particularly is that folks are the same, motivations, love, relationships. Bonnie, I love the Lady Gone Bad cover, too. That's Len Gunn, winner of RT's Cover Model Contest. He graces the hot (!) book video too. Yeah, some of the attitudes about women could be draconian, but keep in mind, in most places ladies outnumbered the men in the 100 to 1 range so they were treated like gold. Now that's food for thought, isn't it?
(Sabine Starr 4:40pm May 21, 2014)

Even though I enjoy reading about the Old West, I definitely would not want to live there. I couldn't survive without my modern conveniences.
(Bonnie H 12:30pm May 28, 2014)
