Book review Vaughn (Circle Eight #4) by Emma Lang
Available today! August 13, 2013 A con man. A rancher’s daughter. A wildfire out of control.
Elizabeth Graham spends her days running the business side of the Circle Eight ranch. Her knack for numbers and organization lent themselves to her position in the family. She has just turned twenty-one and doubts she will find a man to spend her life with. Elizabeth doesn’t believe in love, after all, and when she meets a charlatan named Vaughn Montgomery, her opinion doesn’t waver. At first.
Vaughn Montgomery is down to the lint in his pocket and the handsome smile he uses as a weapon. His last con in New Orleans went wrong and he fled west. Now he finds himself trapped in the middle of nowhere Texas. And at the mercy of a hard-nosed woman who wears shapeless dresses and whose tongue can cut blocks of wood.
Unwilling to bend and unable to forgive, Elizabeth and Vaughn get caught up in a web of lies that stretches from Austin to Dallas. She finds herself falling for the man who can’t seem to tell the truth and he can’t get enough of a woman who can only speak truths. Together they have to save the Circle Eight and try to avoid falling in love.
The Circle Eight series continues with Vaughn! If you have not read the first three it's fine. You can read these on their own and still follow the story. There are enough details given throughout the book to help you get the background. Vaughn shows up buck naked on the Graham's front door. He then proceeds to fall flat on his face. Beaten and bloody with all his clothes taken he's forced to rely on Elizabeth Graham to nurse him back to health. Elizabeth and her adopted grandmother are alone at the Circle Eight ranch since rest of the family is off visiting other family. Elizabeth stays behind to take care of granny Dolan as she's been in poor health for a while. Not long after Vaughn shows up trouble shows up behind him. Next thing you know Vaughn and Elizabeth find themselves kidnapped and on their way to Houston to con and a conman and right a bunch of wrongs. In the meantime Vaughn figures out he doesn't want the life he's been living anymore. He wants a whole lot more from life and Elizabeth starts to figure out she is more than she ever thought she could be. In the midst of all the drama and craziness Vaughn and Elizabeth find themselves and each other. This is a journey of self discovery in a lot of ways and it's fun to see both Vaughn and Elizabeth change throughout the book. Each has something to teach the other. Fast paced story with well written characterizations. 4 out of 5 stars for Vaughn by Emma Lang.
