Blog Tour & Giveaway: Caleb by Emma Lang


If a few years back someone would have told me that I would learn a great deal about history, home remedies and ranch life just by reading a romance book, I would’ve laughed.

But sure enough, I did learn. And instead of laughing I loved this book so much I CRIED.

I had a wonderful and exciting trip to the very (old) Wild, Wild West through the pen of Mrs. Lang; and I must say It was a very heart melting one. “Caleb” is the third installment of the “Circle Eight” series. We learn the story of Ranger Caleb Graham who years before had left the Circle Eight in search of the thrill of becoming part of the high authority of the recently freed Republic of Texas.

I have a confession to make: I had NO idea Texas was ever a Republic state.

I know, I know, but please forgive my lack of knowledge of American History. My whole education was directed towards Latin American History, so this was absolutely marvelous for me since it kicked my curiosity and made me want to learn more about this fact. I’ve been reading and doing my own research on the topic ever since. I can say that those bits and pieces of history I read, only made me love this book even more.

Caleb is a fearless Texas Ranger, who joined the forces in search of his real purpose in life, after his parents had been murdered. While in service to the Republic he seldom stops by the Circle Eight to visit his family anymore, but manages to do so while on a mission for which  he must travel more than 200 miles north in search of a stubborn blacksmith who not only knows her way with steel, but also with Caleb’s temper.

We also meet Aurora “Rory” Foster who works as a blacksmith, occupation she learned from her late father and that has kept her afloat after her husband Horatio died. In fact, her flawless work with a forge and anvil has made her famous in the region and it’s been through this art that she’s been able to survive after losing her husband. I believe Rory Foster has been one of the greatest female characters I have ever read about. Not only is she a strong and determined woman, but also stubborn and fearless, something that inevitably caught Ranger Graham’s attention.  Rory is that kind of woman capable of defying any and all obstacles to achieve her goals.

For example, smearing a urine poultice over Caleb’s would after making it in front of his brothers.
Yep, that’s Rory:

“What the hell?” Matt stepped back as if she was going to hurt him.

“I need to make a paste with the ash and piss. It’s a good way to stop the blood. My father taught me when I was a girl.” She forced herself to piss enough to make the paste the right consistency. After she’d yanked up her trousers, she mixed the ingredients together until it was ready.

The two Graham’s stared at her while the other two men stood behind with the horses. All of them were silent and motionless.

“Someone peel back the shirt so I can smear this on him.” Nobody moved.

“He’s going to bleed to death.”

Matt moved closer and put his hand on his pistol. Rory’s fury knew no bounds. She growled at him and removed the blood-soaked shirt herself. The sound of the pistol clearing leather was loud in the forest. “I won’t let you smear piss on my bleeding brother. Move away.”

I don’t really care what you say or do right now, Matt Graham. The only thing that matters is Caleb. I won’t let you stop me from saving him.”

She got to her feet and shook the bloody shirt. “He’s dying and you’re letting it happen.” She threw the shirt at him. “Now, are you going to help me stand there showing me your dick is bigger than mine?”

Rory was as fearless as any man of her time.

When Caleb and Rory meet it’s definitely not in the right circumstances or time, but nonetheless the attraction is felt since the minute they laid eyes on each other. After a quite bumpy nap on a tree, a very nasty cut and the urgent trip to the nearest doctor available, Caleb ends up taking Rory to the last place on earth he ever thought he would find the missing piece of his family’s puzzle: his brother Benjy.

Benjy’s character is remarkable. He is the greatest example of bravery in the worst situation possible. He captivated my heart and made me realize that you can be small, but extremely courageous. For those who have followed the series, you will remember what happened to Benjy; so imagine Caleb’s amazement and joy to have found him when he was least expecting it. And it is through Benjy’s courage and strength that Caleb finally agrees that it is time he must return to that one place he is more missed from: the Circle Eight.

As all three run for their lives and hide from the bad guys, we learn that this is a story of awakenings, an exciting adventure through a vast land, the pleasure of freedom, the unforgettable beauty of the Old West and the feeling of home and love only an amazing book like this can deliver.
