Circle Eight: Tobias by Emma Lang‏

Beth Williamson, who also writes as Emma Lang, is an award-winning, bestselling author of both historical and contemporary romances. Her books range from sensual to scorching hot. She is a Career Achievement Award Nominee in Erotic Romance by Romantic Times Magazine, in both 2009 and 2010, and a semi-finalist in the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest.

Beth has always been a dreamer, never able to escape her imagination. It led her to the craft of writing romance novels. She’s passionate about purple, books, and her family. She has a weakness for shoes and purses, as well as bookstores. Her path in life has taken several right turns, but she’s been with the man of her dreams for more than 20 years.

Beth works full-time and writes romance novels evening, weekends, early mornings and whenever there is a break in the madness. She is compassionate, funny, a bit reserved at times, tenacious and a little quirky. Her cowboys and western romances speak of a bygone era, bringing her readers to an age where men were honest, hard and packing heat. For a change of pace, she also dives into some smokin’ hot contemporaries, bringing you heat, romance and snappy dialogue.

Life might be chaotic, as life usually is, but Beth always keeps a smile on her face, a song in her heart, and a cowboy on her mind. ;)


A broken man. A woman who needs a hero. A love that should never have been.

Rebecca Graham always knew she was to marry a hero and leave home in blissful happiness. She chose that man when she was seventeen. Unfortunately, her family hated him. In a fury over being swindled by someone else, Tobias burned down the Circle Eight, her family's ranch. He spent four months rebuilding alongside her family in penance. When he accepts her help to nurse his grandfather, she has hopes he will become the hero she envisioned. She was wrong.

Tobias Gibson never expected happiness for himself. His brothers, adopted by their patriarch Pops, were all that matters. After Pops dies while under Rebecca Graham's care, he cannot forgive her failure to save his grandfather. He ignores his attraction to Rebecca. There is too much bad blood between them.

Life never rolls forward as expected however. Five years after he'd last seen her, Rebecca Graham reenters his life. Together they face the storm that sweeps across their lives. They have to rely on each other and ignore the growing love setting their souls and hearts on fire.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
Tobias is book 6 in the Circle Eight series. His character was born in book 4, Vaughn, and he turned into a dark hero who needed to be redeemed. I’m a sucker for both a series and a tortured dark hero. My fav!

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
About three months. Tobias had already become fully formed prior to the book but he revealed all his secrets when I wrote his story.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing? 
Oh, good question! I think my favorite thing is creating characters that I fall in love with. They take over my story and tell me their secrets sometimes even whispering in my ear as I sleep. It’s a marvelous feeling to hear from readers that they’ve enjoyed my books. Nothing feels better than that.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
Writer’s block. When I get stuck on a book and no matter what I do, I can’t get any words down, I get so frustrated. That’s when I know I’ve gone the wrong direction and I have to backtrack and redo.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why? 
I’m a history nerd and this question is like a box of chocolates. I would love to be Queen Elizabeth I. She was a serious badass queen who showed the world how powerful a woman can be. Smart, decisive as well as someone who loved deeply and fought like the world’s best strategist.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it? 
 Ha! Um, do I have to confess? Okay, I think it’s a jar of pickles. It’s at least a year old, maybe two.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future? 
I will publish the final two books in the Circle Eight series in 2015, along with books 2 and 3 in my mash-up witch/western series Wicked Witches of the West! Beyond that, anything can happen!
