Legacy of Lies is the first book in a brand new series, Hell’s Valley, by Jillian David. I fell in love with this author with her Hell to Pay series so I was so excited to see what this new series would be about. Let me tell you, it was fantastic!

The family this series will revolve around are the Taggarts. They live on a ranch in Copper River, Wyoming. There is something special about the Taggart siblings. They each have a special ability. The father doesn’t have any such ability so I am hoping

A paranormal cowboy. Well, I have to say that this is a first. And I liked it!!

Garrison Taggert has major trust issues. But who can really blame him after his wife took off and left him with their son and then emptied out his accounts??? She was a real prize, that one. He's been trying to hold everything together for his family and their ranch. So when his son's new teacher, Sara Lopez, brings up the fact that he's being bullied and asks one too many personal questions, Garrison wonders what her

Wow! Just Wow! Oh, and did I mention wow? David definitely launches her new series with a bang with this novel. I devoured it in a single sitting. This world comes to life with vivid descriptions and intricate world building. The plot is unique and had me guessing. I love how David introduced me to different elements of what is going on in this town and around the area through the various characters that we meet. The uniqueness of the plot combined with the aspects of mystery were gripping. And ...more

Actually, it was a nice read, the writing was good, and I enjoyed the plot. The only problem I have with this book is the paranormal element. It pretty much ruined my mood to have a sizzling hot cowboy romance. Don't get me wrong though. The chemistry between Garrison and Sara is sizzling hot, alright. It's just that, in my very humble opinion, the book doesn't need the paranormal element.

Thanks to the author for providing the e-book in exchange for a review.

I like discovering new talented authors over the blog and I have found some great ones so far. This was a new author for me as well since I haven’t read anything from her so far.

I received a copy of this book directly from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed Legacy of Lies by Jillian David. It was a strange and fresh new concept of a contemporary rancher-romance juxtaposed with elements of paranormal and thriller, which isn’t something I’ve run across in the past.

Technically speaking, the book was well written. There were no obvious or jarring typos. The narrative was clean, flowed easily, and for the most part, the dialogue was believ

Who doesn't love a good paranormal romance? I know I love them. This book caught me in from the cover. Wow thought there could be some great looking guys in this book. I am not too much into westerns though. So, I was a little spectacle on this part. Garrison Taggert is a great character and dad. There is many elements to this book that come together well for.

Garrison Taggart has always lived on the ranch that he is now running for his father.

Sara wants the best for her students so she asks Garrison personal questions hoping to get a better idea of Zach's issues, but that worries Garrison even more. He's af

The Hell’s Valley series is paranormal western series about hot, psychic cowboys. Legacy of Lies follows a woman named Sara in rural town called Copper River. It’s such a small town where everyone knows everybody and their business. Nothing is a secret in this tight-knit rancher community. Sara first meets Garrison through his son, Zach’s parent-teacher conference and there is immediate chemistry. But Sara’s

I received this book to give an honest review.

So I was told this book was a western romance and for some reason I had it set it in my head that I probably wouldn't like it because I am not a fan of western books. That being said I finally was able to get to this book and I was really amazed at how much I was into. It didn't feel a western. Just a really hot dad who has a lot on his shoulders and works a ranch.

3.5 stars.

This book starts out as a cowboy romance, with a young woman trying to overcome her small town past and the grouchy single dad she has to deal with in an attempt to secure the boy’s happiness. But from quite early on it becomes obvious that this is more than just a cowboy contemporary, because Garrison isn’t just grumpy, he’s a psychic who can tell when someone is telling lies.

From there this book steadily moves on with the attraction between Sara and Garrison swiftly turning into a ro

Small town ranching community. Single father of a troubled 8-year-old son. A teacher with a past. Throw in some supernatural abilities and the romance thickens.

The Brands are hard to avoid. Their ranch is next door, one brother runs the local hardware store, another is school principal, twin boys are in the same school, their father the sheriff, ranchers congregate at the only cafe in town.

The combination of paranormal, esp, and insanity create a milieu that is broken all too often by lack of

So I already knew the author was awesome, but this proves to me she is as versatile as she is imaginative and descriptive! An awesome romance centering on ranching and horses and small town life with tiny hints of paranormal activity dotted throughout.

What could easily be just another psychotic ex-boyfriend story is turned into a fantastic trip through the lives of the Taggert family. From rustlers to arson to kidnapping, she wraps you up in their lives and takes you on a roller coaster of emot

This was a fascinating story and not like most of the paranormal romances out there with its unique setting and a creative use of the paranormal. The relationship between Sara and Garrison was sweet and the times they were together were smoking hot. My only frustration was Sara’s indecisiveness when it came to staying or leaving Copper Ridge, especially near the end when I thought she had made her choice. One thing that I liked was how Garrison made mistakes, owned up to them, and worked to make ...more

One of Sara’s students is acting a little weird, so Sara uses the opportunity of a parent-teacher conference to inform the boy’s father of the fact. But Garrison Taggart doesn’t take her offer of maybe providing the child with professional help easily and Sara, despite her misgivings about the child’s wellbeing, thinks this is the end of it.

Little does she know she’ll soon be embroiled in a feud between two families. A feud that might prove deadly...

There is more to Garrison Taggert than meets the eye but that isn’t what initially comes to mind as you read your way through this story, what is blatantly obvious is the fact that he is up to his eyes in responsibility.

Genre:  romance, paranormal

I really liked the sound of this story, but had a few issues with it. I haven’t read any of the Hell to Pay books, and when there’s time I’ve book marked them to take a look at esp as they’re currently on KU. So many books, so little time....It may be that I’d have got more out of this book if I’d read them.

So, I love paranormal romance but the romance here felt a little flat for me. Why on earth did

I was asked to review this by the author, and it's not my usual thing so I was going to turn it down. But, after reading about it, I thought it would be like Wynonna Earp, a TV show that I've recently discovered and love, and it kind of was: small town gossip, traditional Western romance, bit of paranormal thrown in. However there were just a few too many questions for me to properly understand it but I did overall like it.

This is a spin off the Hell to Pay series. I have not read the other series but I loved this book, it is also the first book by Jillian that I have read. This book is about a paranormal cowboy, his family, and a town teacher. Garrison has an ability that not only affects him but the people he comes in contact with. He has trouble believing people are telling him the truth. Sara Lopez is trying to start her life over. Sure she grew up in Copper River and had her fair share of teenage rebellion. N ...more

Sara Lopez has gone back to her hometown to work. And her job puts her into the same space as an adolescent crush. Garrison Taggart is a single dad trying to do the best he can. He owns his own business but there seems to be a mystery that I find myself wanting to solve. One character to watch out for is Hank Brands. He was creepy and an odd duck to say the least. The scene-stealer of the story is Garrison’s son Zach. You won’t see him much but he leaves an impact.
