A trip to Atlanta reveals her inheritance includes ownership of Stratford Hall, a historic, secret-laden, 200-year-old, antebellum manor in the midst of the Appalachian Hills. But while ownership of this manor seems like a dream come true, there are others determined to claim the estate for themselves. They'll stop at nothing, even threatening Dani's life in an effort to scare her off.

Romance, intrigue, mystery and history, all rolled into one neat, tidy package. Ms. Burks novel, A Legacy of Love, holds all that and more. As an author, she clearly has mastered poetic verse and the evidence is clearly stated throughout this novel. Although I am normally not a mystery/romance mix kind of gal, I can say without hesitation that I enjoyed reading A Legacy of Love. I am looking forward to Ms. Burks next work.

With the loss of her parents at a young age, she's turned her back on God ~ the one she blames for their deaths. Kind-hearted Mrs. O'Brien, who tenderly and wisely nudges her young friend back to her Maker, one step at a time. Justin Harcourt - the heartthrob and gorgeous love interest of Dani McKinnon.

Blake Spencer - top notch private investigator with looks to boot! Exactly what a single young lady's guardian 'angel' should look like.
