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
LunaÔÇÖs 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 RuyÔÇÖs love survive their familiesÔÇÖ 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 cover
This story has the very distinctive (READ: romantic) signature of Fielding’s writing. ┬áI was immediately captivated by the passionate Ruy who was a paradox unto himself. ┬áHe is quite intense – a passionate Spaniard. ┬áI need to dub him swoon-worthy. ┬áHe has the personality, the body, the brains, and a touch of Alpha (in the best way possible). ┬áRuy was by far my favorite of the story.
 
Luna Ward initially comes across as a bit cold and somewhat lost soul.  Professionally she has it together, but her head and heart are way behind everything else.  Going to Spain was a way to find out more about her life and herself.  Moreover, I believe she needed to be found by Ruy.  Hiding behind her ever-pragmatic persona, she almost misses out on seeing, experiencing, and reveling in the mystically beautiful aspects of life.  She lived in a world of black and white until Ruy brought on a tsunami of color.
 
I was surprised a few times in this book.  It took me a bit to become invested in the story; I found it was a slow start, but once things began to roll, I was enchanted by the setting, the twists and turbulence in the story, as well as the development of the characters.  There is a heavier and more dramatic tone to this story, but it is appropriate and done well.  The romance (physical, emotional, and mental) is wonderfully melded with the spirit of the writing.
 
The story resolves exactly as it should, and you’re left with a complete picture of who these characters where and how they will live & love on. Sounds like a worthwhile read to me.
