About the Book
Page-Turning Romance and Intrigue in Award-Winning Author's Next Historical Novel
Lucy Drake's mastery of Morse code has made her a valuable asset to the American news agencies as a telegrapher. But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk. Newly arrived from London, Colin is talented, handsome, and insufferably charming.
Despite their rivalry, Lucy realizes Colin's connections could be just what her family needs to turn the tide of their long legal battle over the fortune they were swindled out of forty years ago. When she negotiates an unlikely alliance with him, neither of them realizes how far the web of treachery they're wading into will take them.
A Dangerous Legacy was another spectacular historical romance from Elizabeth Camden. I loved 'Until the Dawn' and didn't think it could be topped. But then came 'From This Moment' (and Romulus). Now, after reading 'A Dangerous Legacy'... oh my!... Camden has outdone herself!
I was instantly sucked into this story and the characters lives and sent back in time to 1903 in New York City. There was mystery, intrigue, danger, twists and turns, but also charming and humorous moments, as well. The banter between Lucy and Colin was so much fun.
One thing I absolutely love about Camden's books are the interesting and often little known historical facts. This book is full of them! I felt like I learned a lot of things I didn't know before. I loved getting an inside look at the early days of the AP and Reuters. I didn't know any of the history of either news agency, so that was fascinating.
'A Dangerous Legacy' is one of the best historical romances I've read this year! I highly recommend it! And I'm so excited there's going to be a sequel!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.
