"The Circle Eight" historical western romance series continues with Book Two, "Brody" by Emma Lang. Hotter than a habanero, and a thrill-a-minute action adventure to boot, "Brody" is a very intense romance read. We were first introduced to the characters of Brody Armstrong and Olivia Graham in "Matthew", Book One in the series. Brody is a hard-edged, tougher-than-nails Texas Ranger. Olivia met Brody when he began investigating the murders of her parents and the kidnapping of her youngest brother, Benjy. Being the oldest sister in the Graham family, Olivia is very protective and managerial toward her siblings. Naturally strong-willed and keenly intelligent, Olivia is unlike any woman Brody has ever met, and she turns him upside down and inside out. He has a similar effect on her, and the sparks between them are fiery and passionate. When Brody uncovers a clue to Benjy's disappearance, he goes to the Graham ranch to speak with the oldest brother, Matt. Since Matt and the other Graham brothers are away at the time, Olivia demands to be informed of Brody's findings. Determined to follow Brody in his search for Benjy, Olivia persists in pursuing the reluctant ranger until she wears him down and he takes her along in the investigation. These two are more than match for each other, and they bluff, bicker, and bluster their way through one adventure after another in their quest to bring down the evil gang that murdered the Grahams and stole little Benjy. The more they fight and finagle, the more the attraction between them grows, and soon their hearts become involved. Each of them has personal issues which cause them to think they are not worthy of being loved and having a lasting relationship, and neither is sure that they could have a future together. As the investigation intensifies, and Brody and Olivia are pulled deeper and deeper into a world of danger, can love find its way? Can the pervasive and powerful evil which killed families like the Grahams and stole away little children to be sold for hideous purposes finally be stopped? Will the youngest Graham return to the Circle Eight? Author Emma Lang is sure to captivate fans of historical western romance who love "heat with heart"!
