Myth, Magic,
and Fiery Heroines


Lose yourself in the magic of old Hawaii with award-winning author Katherine Kayne . . .

Letty Lang is a suffragist of the most fearless kind, with a bullwhip, big plans, and ancient power she doesn’t understand. Will a fast horse and a stubborn man derail her dreams?

Discover the first book in the Hawaiian Ladies' Riding Society series.





"I created the world of the Hawaiian Ladies' Riding Society to tell the stories of the fearless horsewomen of the islands’ ranches. Because who doesn’t love a suffragist on horseback? With a bullwhip? Wearing flowers?

"If you come along for the ride, be prepared for almost anything to happen. I can promise you fiery kisses, charming cowboys, women who ride like the rainbow to save the day, and that rarest of beasts—handsome men who like to dance."

– Katherine Kayne



Praise for Bound in Flame

"A rip-roaring, smart, and vivid romantic adventure with a truly dynamic and memorable heroine, an exceptionally appealing Hawaiian setting and a wildly unusual premise. Kayne's imaginative landscape will cast a spell on readers”

- Publishers Weekly Booklife

“There’s a strong element of women empowerment and embracing diversity, and the varied characters are delightful and engaging. Surrounding them, the islands come alive beautifully. Bound in Flame is a historical fantasy with spirited horse rides, even more spirited riders, and forbidden romance.”

- Historical Novels Review


Bound in Flame is a wonderful series debut. Part historical, part fantasy […] it features strong, courageous women who are ahead of their time. People who like magical realism and are interested in learning more about Hawaiian history and lore will find this story fascinating.”

"You're going to love this one!"

- Susan Mallery, New York Times
bestselling author



“In this delightful debut novel Katherine Kayne sweeps us back to a Hawaii still mourning its lost kingdom, where ladies—their ballgowns covered in yards of protective fabric—gallop across the mountains and down the city streets on their way to polo matches and parties, men dance the hula as well as women, and flowers are everywhere. It’s no accident that Bound in Flame kicks off a brand-new series, aptly called The Hawaiian Ladies Riding Society.”
