The Grahams were a happy family. Mother and father deeply in love, with eight children living on their Texas ranch in the mid-1800s. One day after spending time away from with six of his siblings, oldest son Matthew goes home to find his parent's dead and his youngest brother missing.
Three months later the siblings find themselves working their farm and learning to live together without their parents. In order to add to their land size and collect free land from the government, Matthew finds that he must marry. He finds himself in a bit of a pickle when he tells the government official that he is married to a woman named Hannah and must produce her to get the land.
When he meets a woman named Hannah, he knew that he couldn't pass up the opportunity help his family.
Hannah can't believe that a handsome man like Matthew wants to marry her. He is completely honest with her, but has offered her something she has always wanted and never thought she would have. Finding her place in this big family might be a challenge, but Hannah is up for it and she just might find love in the end.
This is the first in the Circle Eight series, introducing readers to the big family and their time period. Wonderful love story, featuring the well thought out theme, filled with mystery and heroic women and strong western men.
A man learns to hold what is his…
It is a vast spread in the eastern wilds of the newly independent Republic of Texas, the ranch their parents fought for … and died for. To the eight Graham siblings, no matter how much hard work or hard love it takes, life is unthinkable without family…
In the wake of his parents’ murder, Matthew Graham must take the reins at the Circle Eight. He also needs to find a wife in just thirty days, or risk losing it all. Plain but practical, Hannah Foley seems the perfect bride for him . . . until after the wedding night.
Their marriage may make all the sense in the world, but neither one anticipates the jealousies that will result, the treacherous danger they’re walking into, or the wildfire of attraction that will sweep over them, changing their lives forever.
