A heart-felt, action packed, 2nd Chance Romance

The story picks up right after book two and the action and danger is alive and kicking.

Book Review For: The Legend by Donna Grant 'The Legend' by Donna Grant is Book Three in The "Sons of Texas" series. This is the story of Callie Reed and Wyatt Loughman. I do feel that you will enjoy and understand this book better if you read the previous book. These book main focus is with the Loughman brothers and so this book opens us up to Wyatt. Both Callie and Wyatt are strong main characters that won't easily give into their feelings but love wins out for sure. This has some exciting situ ...more

The Legend is book three in a continued story. I would recommend reading them in order. Each book is focused on one of the Loughman brothers but there is an overall big picture going on involving the government and a shadow organization.

Book 3 focuses on Wyatt and Callie, with appearances from all the characters in the previous books. This series is heavy on the suspense and action packed. I do wish the romance part of the story was more. It gets a bit overshadowed with everything going on but
I would highly recommend that you read the previous books in this series. I did not and felt a little lose which affected my overall enjoyment of the book. Wish I had known what was going on. Lots of characters I didn’t know.

Other than that this was a fast paced, action filled book with two characters that I enjoyed. The romance is not front and centered and let’s face it, that’s why I read. I would definitely recommend this if you’re willing to read the previous books first.

When I pick up a book by this author I know that I'm going to get a fast paced story with plenty of heat to help fuel the action. Having being enamoured of her paranormal romance stories I was over the moon to discover that she has now turned to romantic suspense with a decidedly military twist, plus these books feature heroes from Texas so yeehah !
This is the third book featuring three brothers and the covert ops that their father is heavily involved in. If honest I think they

So... The Legend is the third book in the Sons of Texas series. Heh, yeah, I missed that when I was all excitable over the blurb and cover.

So, I didn't have to wait that long lol.. thanks for the ARC Netgalley!

Action packed! Romance was on the back burner throughout the story, but I figured that going in, as they were both being stubborn and lying to themselves. This evil secret agency thing is interesting. Hopefully we get a couple more books.

seriously? you publish book 1 and 2 in consecutive months but then the third 6 months later? when it has an overall story arc? That sucks.

I am a huge fan of this author and this series! This book is Wyatt and Callie's story. After fifteen years apart and love they have each held deep within their hearts of each other, without the other knowing, they have had to split up to stay alive and keep the fight against the saints and the search for Orrin going.

The feelings are still there, even though they are trying to keep them in check. It becomes more and more difficult.

The shadow organization that reaches into all levels of the government across the globe has men everywhere, the chance of betrayal is high. When enemies align the stakes become deadlier and decidedly personal. Amid fast paced action and suspense and continued intrigue the Loughmans defend what is theirs against what should be insurmountable odds. This ...more

Instead Callie got work at the Loughman’s Ranch with Orrin Loughman, the family’s patriarch, treating her like a daughter. However, his son Wyatt’s feelings towards Callie were never brotherly. When she first came to the ranch Wyatt didn’t trust that Callie wasn’t exactly like her kin, but she proved him wrong with hard work and determinat ...more

The Legend is the third installment of the Sons of Texas series, as the Loughman brothers search for their kidnapped father and outmaneuver the danger that is out to kill them. Wyatt Loughman is the oldest of the three and probably the most dangerous. He lives up to his name “The Legend” as a member of Delta Force, because he is ruthless and fights like there is no tomorrow. He left Texas when he was able because he blamed his father for his mother’s murder, and vowed never to return. He left th

+++ I was invited to view this ARC through NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it +++
I’ve read some of the reviews of this book and I’m in the minority here. I had trouble finishing this book. Perhaps because it’s the third in a series and I was not familiar with several characters. Or perhaps because there were so many things happening and some of them were unrealistic.
I usually love a wounded hero and I liked some dimensions in Wyatt, a deeply tortured soul.

The Legend starts right up where book 2 ends, so you will need to have read the other 2 books in the Sons of Texas series before picking this one up.

I have been waiting for Wyatt and Callie's story, however the romance takes a back seat in this action packed, suspenseful installment of this series.

All the tensions that have been building up, all the people out for the Loughman family, come together in a perfect storm of danger - though at times I struggled a little bit remembering who was with

Long awaited Book 3 for me in this series. I was waiting to see what the story was between Wyatt and Callie. The previous books barely alluded to their obvious over the top dislike for each other, the abrasive and cold Wyatt who blames his father for his mothers death and is totally closed off from the family. Wyatt is the oldest. Callie has been working on the ranch for years, had a brief tryst with Wyatt before he unceremoniously dumped her and went off to college, he never came home. Callie s ...more

The Good: Awesome romance and hot, hot sex scenes. The final battle of good verses evil was Epic.

The Bad: Callie and Wyatt circling each other like a couple of junk yard dogs. The endless regurgitation of their high school romance and Wyatt's leaving her heartbroken. This plot does not resolve with this book.

Everything from the first book in this series has been leading up to this, as the Loughman brothers search for their missing father and try to understand what they are working against and it definitely was worth the wait!

THE LEGEND is filled with twists and turns, danger, action and a slow building suspense leading to an epic final stand against an organization that spans the world, where no-one can be trusted. While the questions from the previous books have been answered, there are

I absolutely LOVED Wyatt's and Callie's story. I really enjoyed Owen's story in book 1, but Wyatt stole my heart in The Legend. The Loughman boys are a force to be reckoned with. This story was full of heart-pounding action, sexual tension, and complex characters that moved like pieces on a well-played chess board. There were plot points I didn't see coming, which thrills me when it happens in books. The action was so well written that it played like a movie in my head as I read. The story was c ...more

I just love this series! There is so much more to the story than a long lost romance. I love the intrigue, action and drama and especially like the fight scenes. There are times I get in a rut reading and it feels like it's all the same scenario. When I saw this book land on my Kindle I knew I was in for a treat. Donna Grant's writing is always flawless and has me at the edge of my seat.

Callie Reed and Wyatt Loughman were once very close until Wyatt decided he couldn't stay in Texas after what happened to his mother and the blame he directed at his father. But now he's back and determined to protect Callie from the three factions gunning for him or his family and to keep a biological weapon from landing into the wrong hands. Will he be able to keep Callie safe, or will they lose their second chance at love?

It's clear from the first few pages that 'The Legend' doesn't function well as a standalone and because I've not read the first book and went through the second quickly, this third one left me all at sea as I struggled to keep up.

As far as I could gather, there is a bioweapon at large, a sinister group of powerful people all over the world infiltrating important government positions, and some crime family descending on a ranch to wipe out a ranching family that also happens to do black ops. And

This is the third book in the Sons of Texas series.

Finding his mother’s murdered body when he was a young man changed Wyatt Loughman’s path in life as well as his views on his father. All emotions were destroyed that day and he left their Texas ranch to join the service and become a cold-hearted man, a man trained to kill.

This is the 3rd book in this series. I had not read any of the other books in the series, and whilst I did get a bit lost with previous storylines, I still found it easy enough to slip into the world and highly enjoyed it!

This is the third book in the Sons of Texas series. This picks up right after the events of book two. (You can read this as a standalone if you want though. The plot is explained well enough) Wyatt is back home to fight with his brothers against the bad guys that are after their family. He's also got to deal with the girl he left behind but never forgotten.

I really liked both Callie and Wyatt. Callie in particular was a strong heroine and she didn't put up with any nonsense from Wyatt. I thought

This one is fast paced and action packed. Almost too fast paced at times. This far into the story there are a ton of characters involved and keeping them all straight was hard at times. I did enjoy the story though and I was glad to see all the Loughman men reunited. This is far more suspense than romance but there is the thread of romance between Callie and Wyatt. They've been dancing around each other throughout all the books and finally they have to quit lying to themselves and face whats goi ...more
