Growing up as an honorary Taggart, Eric Patterson found the family he’d always wanted. Almost. He couldn’t ever manage to see the clan’s youngest and only daughter, stubborn spitfire Shelby, quite like a little sister. Suddenly, his long-suppressed feelings are determined to come to light.
Too bad Shelby’s cursed. Her double whammy psychic powers to read emotions and locate anyone anywhere have always made relationships impossible—and now they’ve begun to endanger her life. If she uses her echolocation skills again, it just might kill her.
But when a malevolent supernatural force invades the valley, threatening the Taggarts and their neighbors, the Brands, Eric and Shelby must contend with both their blossoming feelings and the increasing danger. Does Shelby dare risk using her powers one more time, sacrificing her own life to save Eric?

“Here’s the deal, Shel. If you’re ever with me, you have to open up to me. Completely.”
“Completely?” she whispered.
Dipping his lips to her ears, his voice vibrated every bone of her body. “Every. Whimper.” He traced the shell of her ear with his tongue, and her heart stopped. “Every time you squirm, wanting more. And I want to bring you more. Create your pleasure. Become your pleasure. Be responsible for making you scream my name. I want you to be mine. I don’t want to have just something. I want you. Body. Mind. All of it. Or nothing.”
Legacy Lost by Jillian David picks up where Book 1, Legacy of Lies, leaves off. This book features Shelby and Eric. The Taggert family is entrenched in a battle with an unknown force. Each family member has a gift. Shelby is as tough as they come, as well as stubborn. Eric is also tough as nails. They’ve known each other all of their lives and they’re friends. So, each one is scared to jump into a relationship.
The chemistry between Eric and Shelby is good. There are some back and forth between them as they overcome obstacles and struggle with their relationship. This book also contains mystery as the story evolves and we learn more about the dark force that is threatening the Taggert Family. The evolution is slow as we are in Book 2 and know very little about it. I’d like to see more since we are into book 2. That being said, if you want a romance with strong willed characters and just a touch of paranormal, this series is for you.
