"Welcome, ladies, the next few weeks will decide your future. But before all that, let me introduce you to my son, Nicholas. To one of you, he'll be a future husband. To the rest, a nightmare who will haunt your dreams for whatever time you have left."

Born into privilege, Victoria Hamilton has endured a life of opulent captivity. Disallowed to associate with any men outside her kin, she ventures beyond her gilded cage vicariously, through the art books she adores and the adventures of her dear friend, Tamara. Nevertheless, this staid existence has left her naïve and wildly unprepared when Victoria is finally allowed to debut into society...a debut unlike any other, with no place for the weak.

The arrogantly debauched Nicholas Cavendish, Earl of Lullington, knows he must marry on his thirtieth birthday to inherit his controlling father's dukedom. The five women selected for him will undergo depraved trials no genteel woman should ever be made to suffer. But for Nicholas, what begins as a means to an end quickly becomes a matter of the heart, thanks to one woman--the brave, beautiful and achingly innocent Victoria.

Sentiment and secrecy make for poor bedfellows, with the Cavendish family legacy being the biggest, most dangerous secret of all. And despite all she's endured to win her place by his side, Victoria may find Nicholas is truly the one in need of saving.

About the Author

I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time, I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.

I'm an avid reader who turned to writing to combat my depression and anxiety. I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality.

I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth, my heroines demure but with spunk, and my books full of dramatic suspense.

Legacy of Succession is a dark twisted, fantastic read that had me captivated from page one. Loved the chemistry between Nicholas and Victoria and how no matter how much they fought it they were meant to be together. This author really knows how to pull the reader into the story taking you on quite a journey. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. If you are looking for a great book to read you need to check this author out because her books are amazing!

I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I picked up this book but it left me completely speechless at first, then angry at some of the characters and then happy with the way things turned out. My emotions totally went through the wringer in this one.

4.5 stars Review by Amy W. Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night w/ Books Blog I have no doubt my gravestone will read, 'Here lies, the honorable Victoria Hamilton. She died of boredom, but at least, her reputation was intact.' I had never read any of Anna Edwards work prior to this, but I just had to get my hands on this book. The synopsis, the cover, I was drawn in. Legacy of Succession promised to be my kind of read, and it did not disappoint. No man will dare go against the society. Nobody of rank within it ever has, and nobody ever will. Money, it's the one thing we all crave, and we'd even sell our daughters just to get it or, in this case, to keep it. Victoria was raised in seclusion. Her only friend has been away at university and is due to come back soon. Victoria has just turned 21 and can't wait to, with daddy's permission, have a little fun. But all her dreams go up in smoke when she arrives at Oakfield Hall and realizes joining society may be the death of her. "You may have known you would become a monster, but I had no idea I would become your victim." Lord above, this is one dark and twisted book. I absolutely love the idea of the society, I do not love the society calm your tits! I just like the idea behind it. This story was unique and I enjoyed meeting each character along the way. There were a few unexpected moments where I was surprised so and so did what they did, but also greatly relieved because yeah it needed to happen. Victoria was not a shy and meek character like you would expect from her background, she was unapologetic and stood up for what she believed in. Nicholas, what to say about Nicholas. He is a grade A a hole to the highest degree. But oh so hot! Plus, he can be sweet when he wants. I was a fool to believe he might have kindness in him. He's lost--lost to the devil that is his father. I'm going to die. I'm twenty-one years old, a baby, and my life's over. I fell in love with a few of these characters, Nicholas of course, Victoria most definitely, but also Reggie and William. I am hoping that at some point we get to know what happened to Joanna and get to finally meet Theo. But before any of that we get book two and it is William's book and OMG I am so excited!!! From the first mention of William I was praying that he would be a character I would get more of, but really Anna, December???? I don't know if I can wait that long! If you like dark and dirty romances then you need to pick this one up!!

A very dark, raw and disturbing read. There is a lot of pain and drama in this book. It features very intense scenes of abuse, humiliation and torture. So be warned if these are triggers for you or just a huge turn off. Nicholas and Victoria must survive archaic family traditions, rules of a barbarous secret society and horrifying situations. It is a page turning, jaw dropper of a book. This book stuns with its complexities, shocks you with it's rawness, and moves you with hope because if love can blossom in these conditions, it proves that there is always hope for love. I can't wait for William's story!

Captivating Must Read Every now and then a book comes along that just blows you away. It's the kind that plays over and over in your mind, persisting long after that last page is read. This is the magic Anna Edwards has created. Cringe inducing moments? Check. Sizzling chemistry? Definitely! Anna Edwards definitely brought the twisted and depraved that's like a sinful dark pleasure. Just the way I love it! The beauty of this dark read is it wasn't afraid to really embrace the darkness but used restraint, there was nothing unnecessarily added. The depth of characters and overall storyline just staggers me. There were no one dimensional characters to be found in the book. It truly felt like I could walk right into the world she created. Don't expect to put this book down. It kept me on the edge of my set the entire time with all of the suspense. It grabbed me from the first few pages and didn't let go until the book finished.
