A WILD LEGACY

Posted February 15, 2021


MY REVIEW

This is the final installment to the Wild Swan Trilogy.  I have enjoyed this trilogy so much.  You can read each book as a stand-alone but I think it would be best to read it as a series starting with the first book A Wild Hope, then A Wild Heart and finally finishing with this one, A Wild Legacy.

Lexy Culhane’s father packs up the family and moves them from England to Maryland after deciding its the best thing for the family. Because Lexy’s mother committed murder, they had to leave behind the only life they have ever known.  As they begin their new life in America, they bring with them the family secrets from England.  Then Lexy meets the mysterious Hawk MacKenna she feels that he is the love of her life, her soulmate.  But, Hawk has a secret past of his own and Lexy struggles to trust him.  As Lexy’s life unfolds she is torn between her new life in America and returning to face her past in England.  The connection to the characters is so amazing, and you feel as if you are watching the story unfold before your very eyes.

As the story comes to an end, the author does a fantastic job of leaving no loose ends. You will be totally satisfied with the ending.  This story hits all your emotions and has all the feels.  What a powerful series.  I can’t recommend it enough and is one to stay with you for a very long time, one of the best.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Lexy Culhane follows in stunned silence as her father bundles her younger brothers onto the train in a midnight flight away from the only life they have ever known. It seems impossible to her that her gentle, loving mother could have shot a man.

Despite the shock, Lexy soon grows to love her new home at Wild Swan, the grand horse farm in Maryland run by her formidable grandmother, Alexandria Falconer. It is from Alex that Lexy has inherited her fiery and rebellious spirit, and which eventually leads her headlong into a career as a crusading reporter during the final days of the frontier wars.

When Lexy meets enigmatic fellow reporter Hawk MacKenna, she feels she has finally found her soulmate. But Hawk’s life is shadowed by a mistake from his youth, and still haunted by her mother’s actions, Lexy struggles to trust him. When her relentless curiosity about his hidden past comes between them, Hawk leaves for the battlefields in the West and Lexy accepts an invitation from distant relations in England. But when she is offered a chance to stay, she faces a test—can she choose between building a new life in this foreign land, or returning to face the pain, and the love, that she left behind?
