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…


Legacy is the third and final instalment in the Andalucian Nights series.  I have read all the other books in this series as well so I was curious to see how the series would conclude. And I recently went on holiday to Andalucía so it made this book even more appealing to me.

Luna grew up in the States and is currently working for a scientific newspaper in New York. But then her boss wants her to investigate a clinic in Spain, since her family on her mother’s side is Spanish this is the perfect task for her. As soon as she sets food on Spanish soil she comes across the charismatic and brooding Ruy. He is a complete mystery to Luna and as fate wants it there paths seem to keep colliding.

In a lot of ways Legacy was quite similar to Fielding’s other books. The two main characters meet, they are instantly attracted towards each other and they want to get to know one another but obstacles are continuously thrown on their path which makes their love seem doomed. And that is probably one of the biggest issues I had with this book. I loved it in the first book, thought it was okay in the second one but by this one it had become pretty repetitive. Especially since you already know how things will end in the end, there are no surprises left.

Besides that I did still enjoy this book, especially since it explores alternative health care. I do not know much about the subject so it was interesting to learn a bit more about it while reading this book. Another thing that I liked about it was the rich description of everything. Fielding always has the habit of doing that. And this time I enjoyed it even more since I had recently been to that region of Spain so it felt like I was revisiting certain memories. The author always just gives so many details and wonderful description that it feels like you are transported to that very place in that moment. And it is one of the things that I enjoyed the most about this book.

Overall I still did enjoy this book even though that I had some issues with it. If it is the first book that you read by Hannah Fielding that you will definitely experience it as a fun romance read. And I definitely still want to continue reading her other books.
