Hara’s Legacy is the story of three -very potent- brothers and one woman who loves to swallow. Said woman is also the wife of one the brothers.
The general message of the book is: sex is the answer to e-ve-ry-thing! You feel bad? Have sex with your brother's wife. You can't express your emotions? Have sex with your brother's wife, preferably with your brothers present. Alien attacks? Ask your brother to have sex with your wife. What?!?!?!

DO NOT read this book.

Bravo Bianca – Bravo Samhain Publishing, I fell for your ploy. Browsing through Amazon, I found a copy of Hara’s Legacy and was sucked into the summary. I wish I hadn’t been though. This book was trying to be a sci-fi cock tease and the only of these this world needs are on Joss Whedon’s Firefly. On its own merit, it was like an inexperienced lot lizard, thinking a bunch of truckers running a train on her is foreplay and showing her boobs is worth a ride out of salt lake ci

WOW! If you are looking for a relationship-based menage story, then look no further.
The alien attack on planet Earth has resulted in a lack of females. The eldest O'Hara brother, Caleb, reluctantly realizes that if his family is going to survive, they will have to learn to live in this new reality and that means that his wife will become their wife. I truly enjoyed this book as it dealt just as much with the discomfort and guilt of the brothers as with the incredibly hot sex. The contrast of the
This book is erotica and sci fi. If that's not your thing, stop reading.

I don't think I've ever thought this before, but the story in this book was so interesting, I wish that the author had left out most of the erotica and spent more time developing the back story. It's a post-apocolyptic sci fi story where aliens colonize earth, killing most people in the process. These aliens first visited the early over a thousand years ago to scount planets, and are the origin of our elf stories. When they

OK, in all fairness, I'll say in advance, I know some people love this book and especially when it comes to erotica, I think different things make different people tick. As such, this one just had nothing to offer me. Now, onto my review...

Horrible! I absolutely hated it. Most of the sex scenes I rushed through, but I even found the dialogue distasteful. It's a shame because I really liked the premise. Elfish aliens attack the earth, destroying the major cities and decimating the population. Mos

Overall, I liked this book. I did feel like a few of the sex scenes were put in just to have them in there and seeing as how I like reading gratuitous sex scenes I think that's saying something. Since the book takes place over a period of two-ish years some big chunks of time felt like they were skimmed over, which was a little distracting, but the story itself was fun and a different enough from what I've been reading lately that I found myself entertained.

Now I do have one thing that's sort of
To be honest this book was rather bland, which is a sad thing to say about a menage with three hunky men and one lucky lady. Unfortunately, I found Jane's perfection to be dull as dishwater, Mick's angsty guilt to go on way too long, Caleb's role as patriarch left him rather one sided, and Justin - who was probably the most interesting character - left me unimpressed as well. Another reviewer used the word saccharin to describe the story, and I agree this is an apt description of interactions be ...more

I ordered this an an e-book because I didn't think it would be worth buying the actual book. After reading it I was glad I did just that. I was definitely intrigued by the synopsis that I read initially. I have to say that the story in my opinion would have been rated higher if there was more story and less sex involved. The story had a lot of potential to be something more if the characters weren't so caught up in the bedroom. I don't usually go for books where the story is built around aliens, ...more

It would appear I will read anything if I am feeling apathetic and the book is free.

I like SF and there was the potential for a good story here. Except the whole alien invasion plot seems like it was just part of an elaborate reason to explain why the heroine had to end up having sex with three brothers.

I don't hink I am too prudish but this was actually pretty boring and even saccharine with the ultimate aim being the holy grail of triple penetration. She remembers before the invasion her girl

There are parts of the story that I found interesting and even hot. But the excessive sex, M/M/M/F, (I cannot believe I said that!) drowned out the story. Aliens are coming to invade the planet and the gifts that the O'Hara family possess of precognition/telepathy/empathy allow them to begin planning ways to save their family once the invasion begins. However, it seems EVERYTHING required to save the O'Hara family involves the three O'Hara brothers enjoying sex-play with the eldest brother's wif ...more

I think of these kind of romance novels as porn, this one is a mix of sci-fi and romance/porn. If that's your thing than enjoy, otherwise save your sensibilities and read no more. I enjoyed this book enough to read it through with out putting it down. It had a good story and good sex scenes. It has a whole post apocalyptic, aliens vs. humans thing going. I'll probably read the next to find out how the battle for humanity goes, and not to mention the weird relationship the main characters are inv ...more

I loved the premise of this story. A possible explanation to the Irish elf or elves or even elfin lore. With a space alien mix. The hot Irish brothers with different sexual appetites which is a lot and kinks. Which is a plus. What I did not like is that they took their sweet time getting together. I mean that they truly wasted years upon years. Time is a truly precious thing. Even now time is precious. Considering in this book there was a great cataclysm wouldn't they have been together sooner? ...more

As I said in the first review I wrote for this story the first few chapters are a little slow. This is a world building book and there is quite a bit of information that the author is providing. While each book in this series has its individual group of heroes there is an ongoing story line that flows into each story. This is also science fiction for those that may have a problem with that.

This is a very quick read and the story ends in such a way you want to start the next book as soon as possi

Saccharine is the word that comes to mind first after reading this book. These men loved this woman as if she were a goddess. I generally like that sort of thing since romances are fantasies after all but this was just too much. Maybe the thing that set my teeth on edge the most was that she was just absolutely perfect. So much so that she had no real personality. As it was all the men talked or thought about was how much they loved her. Aliens invade the world and we love Jane. I have to knock ...more

I was a little uncertain about this book when I first started to read it. It took a few chapters to get into the story and have you feeling you understood the characters and the motivation behind each one. This is the first book I have read by Bianca D'Arc so I am not use to her writing and this opening may be the way she writes. Once I got into the story I couldn't put it down. I love all three of the O'Hara brothers. This is a family that has been close and continues to be even after all the t ...more

I'm am an avid reader of paranormal romance but this was one of the best novellas that I've read in a long time. All of the characters had very distinct personalities and stayed consistent throughout the story. Jane and Caleb had been married for seven years when this story takes place and you can tell that they know each other inside and out. When you throw Justin and Mick into the mix and the personal history between all four of them, the explosion of chemistry is phenomenal.

Aliens take over the earth. Story telling was ok, maybe a little weak. Sex scenes were hot, frequent and explicit.

Centuries ago alien explorers came to earth. They interbred with humans, with offspring called breeds. Recently, the aliens moved huge numbers of their population to earth. They killed most of the humans but some humans and breeds survived in remote areas. The O’Haras are breeds. They consist of three brothers, Caleb, Justin and Mick, plus Jane who is married to Caleb.

I enjoy sci fi romance, I LOVE sci fi erotica’s. I enjoy a good ménage. This book really has all of these elements. There are numerous scorching hot sex scenes. The fact that the romance in the book is on a family share plan brought it down a bit for me. I guess I didn’t clue in on that elusion in the synopsis. It is even plausible as to why the O’Hara brothers are sharing the eldest Caleb’s wife. After the Alvian race descended planet Earth they killed off much of the population during the cata ...more

Didn't finish. Lost interest with the characters and the storyline. Neither were very strong or endearing. There were a few times where you really got an idea of the type of person the characters were, but since the author did more telling than showing I found it wasn't nearly as effective.

I've read a few stories by this author in the past and while they were enjoyable, she's not really good when it comes to developing characters. I gave this one a shot because the premise sounded good, but the

I love erotic menage sci-fi. And Hara's Legacy was good as far as story line and characters go. But the majority of the book is erotic love scenes. I prefer a good story with 2 or 3 really hot love scenes and lots of plot. But, if you are looking for a good story with lots of hot lovin' this would be a good book for you. I just couldn't give more than 1 star to this book when I had to skim thru most of it. It's my own fault. I did read similar warnings in other reviews. But I also understand boo ...more
The story is an interesting concept of aliens invading and only leaving the humans with extra powers (telekinesis, telepathy, strong empathy) alive. Not a bad book for a smutty, harlequin romance-type book.

Uggh, I could not make myself finish this book. Not becuase of the erotic factor, but because it was missing something. I won't say it was poorly written. I will say I did not enjoy the writing. There was no flow in the dialogue. And as a previous reviewer said, the answer for everything was sex. Now you may ask what else would I expect from and erotic romance, um, well a little bit of a story to draw me in. The menege in this story was just eeewwww, and I've enjoyed a few menege stories.

I have been meaning to pick up this series for sometime now and all I can say is wow. while its full of hot scenes that I have come to expect from Bianca, the world she has created is intriguing.

I actually picked this up because it was free for a short while for my Kindle and the plot seemed somewhat intriguing. It wasn't bad, but I generally prefer to have sex scenes within the plot, rather than plot thrown in between the sex. The sex scenes were steamy but extremely excessive (and graphic, but I don't really mind that.) In this book sex was meant to solve everything. There was hardly much of a plot beyond the sex scenes and explaining the reasoning for the sex. If there had been more ...more
This book is about how three brothers will cope up with having a single woman in household in a futuristic setting. I'd like to see more action than what the theme is, and I've also skim lots of sex scenes. Unlike any other scifi reads, this is more on the emotional concept, on how they should be together so that the future and their deaths will not happen, what is the role of each in their community. Anyway, I've enjoyed the first scenes, then become bored with the next. I will give credit to t ...more
