The Deveraux Legacy

The Deveraux Family: wealthy, glamorous, powerful… and in a lot of trouble. Senator Eleanor Deveraux lost her children in a plane crash, but she has a second chance to get her family right with her four grandchildren – Evan, Jackson, Aiden and Dominique. But second chances are hard to seize when politics, mercenaries, and the dark legacy of the Deveraux family keep getting in the way.

The storyline is so much fun and the romance is sweet and sexy but the characters are everything.

I adored every character in the book.

Trust me, the intriguing plot will keep you on the edge.

I enjoy love stories, but the suspense and thrilling who-dunnit scenes had me up all night reading until I finished the book.

I expected the book to hit a lull at some point but it never did. Solid tension, action and ‘ooh la la’ all the way through.

…the perfect mix between romance, suspense and mystery.

Love the characters and the action throughout the book. Can’t wait to read the next one!

5 stars – This was such a fun book to read with “laugh out loud” dialog (and thoughts) by the characters, hot romance and action.

5 stars – This story is full of just the right amount of romance and suspense!

The storyline was stunning…loved the characters and the family drama present here…the attraction between Aiden and Ella was overloaded with hotness.

The Cinderella Secret was intense. But that ending! It was oh so satisfying…

Wow wow wow!!! 100/5 star review!!! This book was a nice blend of mystery, romance, court room drama, and even a little bit of Illegal fighting.

I can’t get over how good this story was. I even went back and started reading the 1st book. Definitely a must read.

I had been waiting in anticipation for this sequel and it did not disappoint. … Cannot recommend enough. This series is a page turner and I cannot wait for the next book.
