Noah Calhoun is down on his luck and looking for a job. After an accident almost kills his father, he leaves home searching for something worthwhile in his life.
Rosalyn Benedict lives off the scraps thrown out from Elsa’s restaurant. The one night she waits for food, Noah enters her life and wishes to offer her help.
Noah has been away from home for three years and not a day goes by that he does not miss it. His last name alone reminds others of his father’s reputation as a bounty hunter, which prompts the aging sheriff to offer him a job as sheriff. Hesitant at first, Noah agrees to accept. As an orphan, Rosalyn had spent most her life living off the streets. Noah wishes to offer her help, but help from a sheriff is nothing Rosalyn desires. A bit skittish, she manages well. She flees from him and heads to Marina’s saloon where she sleeps on the back chairs with her cat. Noah sees a kindred spirit inside her. He lost his mother at twelve and was taken in by the Calhoun’s and Malloy’s, and can understand Rosalyn’s plight. If it means locking her behind bars to help, so be it.
The Legacy is a poignant story with so much depth and emotion that it is hard not to fall in love with Noah or Rosalyn. There were many times I wanted to reach in and pull them closer together. Both characters are strong. I love the affection that Noah has been taught by his adopted family. I love Rosalyn’s spirit and sassiness. Beth Williamson tells a lovely story filled with romance and passion that matures beautifully. She pens a tale that captivates and makes the reader feel as if they have stepped inside the adventure.
