Legacy (Capitol Chronicles - Book 5) by SHIRLEY HAILSTOCK

When you're sitting on top of the world, You only have two decisions to make. Do you fall to the left or the right? Erika St. James has seen both the best of life and the worst of it. Losing the only parent who loved her unconditionally when she was twelve, she fled to a man who became a dear friend and one who taught her to run a global business. However, he didn't teach her to find good relationships -- especially the man-woman kind. On his death-bed he tells her a secret, one that brings Michael Lawrence in to again upset her emotions.

Michael Lawrence, a traumatized attorney, turned his back on the law and escaped to a solitary life in the Maryland mountains. Discovering he is heir to a fortune, he can only claim it if he returns to the city and works with Erika St. James, the beautiful new president of a multinational corporation. While his thoughts of her stray from the boardroom to the bedroom, someone else has plans to make him pay for past deeds. And Erika is the pawn he'll use to force Michael into his crosshairs.

If they survive, will they be able to love again?

I loved this book. It had mystery and romance! The mystery was just enough and did not take over the romance of the story. Another great read.

An entertaining light mystery. A bit too much unrealistic romance but still a good read.

Legacy has romance, secrets, sex, suspense and fear in abundance. Hailstock has a great command of her characters—Erika St. James and Michael Lawrence—who, according to the mysterious terms of a Will, must live and work together for a year in order to claim a massive inheritance. Both have suffered in the past and hold their dark secrets close, refusing to trust—or care—again. Their mutual attraction only confuses matters, making them more wary and more vulnerable. For there are outside forces determined to bring them down through trails of money and trails of blood. Can they learn to depend on each other, to trust again, and most important, to love again, before these vicious forces destroy them once and for all? You won’t want to put the novel down until you find out the answers to these compelling questions.

Pads in. Her eyes flash from green to sapphire as she transforms to a dragon. She shoots out a blue flame but it isnt vey strong. She sighs and turns back to a cat. Curls up against a tree sadly.
