Book one in Lang’s new Circle Eight series is a delicious tale of passion and betrayal. Opposites attract in this fiery tale, with memorable characters, fast-paced action and emotional rewards.
Bandits raid the Circle Eight, killing Matt Graham’s parents and kidnapping his baby brother. He is now responsible for the ranch and his six siblings. He also has 30 days to claim his father’s land grant — all he needs is a wife named Hannah. Hannah Foley and her grandmother run the local boardinghouse. She has no illusions about her looks or her prospects, but readily accepts Matt’s offer of a marriage of convenience. The newlyweds are surprised at the passion that ignites between them. Neither expects to fall in love or to have to battle to save their marriage, their family and their land. (BRAVA, Feb., 252 pp., $14.00)
