Book Review / Legacy by Hannah Fielding

A troubled young journalist finds her loyalties tested when love and desire unearth dark secrets from the past.

Spring, 2010. When Luna Ward, a science journalist from New York, travels halfway across the world to work undercover at an alternative health clinic in Cadiz, her ordered life is thrown into turmoil.

The doctor she is to investigate, the controversial Rodrigo Rueda de Calderon, is not what she expected. With his wild gypsy looks and devilish sense of humour, he is intent upon drawing her to him. But how can she surrender to a passion that threatens all reason; and how could he ever learn to trust her when he discovers her true identity? Then Luna finds that Ruy is carrying a corrosive secret of his own…

Luna’s native Spanish blood begins to fire in this land of exotic legends, flamboyant gypsies and seductive flamenco guitars, as dazzling Cadiz weaves its own magic on her heart. Can Luna and Ruy’s love survive their families’ legacy of feuding and tragedy, and rise like the phoenix from the ashes of the past?

Legacy is a story of truth, dreams and desire. But in a world of secrets you need to be careful what you wish for…

MY REVIEW

What I loved about this book...  Oh yes, Hannah Fielding has done it again.  Just when I thought this trilogy could not get any better, it did!  As with books 1 and 2 in this trilogy, I just got completely swept away by the detailed descriptions of locations and the history of each of the characters.  I also loved that characters from the first two books do make a few appearances in this book too in such a great way.  Of course, there is the romance (which seems to have gotten steamier and steamier the more and more I read of this trilogy, which is great).  I have to say that I thought there would be more of a twist at the end of something like that but there didn't seem to be anything I wasn't expecting, but that's not a bad thing.  It was a great ending to a great trilogy. 

In summary...   As with books 1 and 2, the romance and detailed descriptions in this book was just beautiful.  It was easy to just get swept away with it all.  From book 2 we have skipped forward from 1976 to 2010 so this book could be read as a stand alone if you wanted to but I would very strongly recommend starting from the beginning, book 1, and go from there.  The best part of this trilogy is the history of the characters and to experience that it is best to start from the beginning.
