Legacy Lost is book two in the Hell’s Valley series by Jillian David. Much like the first book in this series, this book is non-stop suspense and of course, some hot romance. In this book, we feature the only female of the Taggart siblings, Shelby. And also, their family friend, Eric Patterson.


The Taggart’s have about all they can handle on their shoulders. Their father is home and recovering from his stroke. But he seems to have given up. It is killing his children to see him this way. With th

*****5 Eric and Shelby Stars*****

I can't quite put my finger on it of why Ms. David's books grab me so deeply. I fell in love with her a few years ago and haven't stopped since.

She has the ability to keep the reader on the edge of their seat to the point where you are just about to topple over...the action and suspense along with the romance all tie together to make a perfect recipe for adventure!

And Legacy Lost is no exception. We find ourselves this time with the story of Eric and Shelby. And
Wow! This book was not at all what I expected. It is the second in a series and I was worried that I might feel lost since I have not read the previous book. I was pleased to learn that that would not be the case. It is quickly explained that some nefarious happenings have taken place and as a result the couple in this book are learning how to deal with the consequences of them.

The Taggert siblings have “gifts” and Shelby’s is the ability to feel the emotions of those around her. She has perfect

“I love you, Eric. I don’t know what to do with a world that doesn’t have you in it.” – Shelby Taggart

Have you ever wished you were able to know what people think? To tell truth from lies, to read emotions and thoughts, to see what truly makes someone tick? Well, the Taggarts would be the first to tell you, it's not such a wonderful skill to possess.

True to what she gave us in the first book, Jillian David went on to tell the story of Shelby next - the only girl of the Taggart family. Now, befo

I received this book to give an honest review.

This time we are with Shelby and Eric more than the others. Shelby is just like her siblings as far as powers go through it seems hers are so intense she questions if she can ever be in a normal relationship. Heck, with everything going on with the ranch can she even find love? Well, steps in Eric who has known the Taggart family for years and he has had a crush on Shelby for so long but hasn't acted on it. So when they decide to take that extra step

Welcome to a braves new world, one like you'd never imagine. Well, unless you've read the first novel in the series already. David unleashes a whirlwind of emotions alongside her very unique concepts that had me hooked throughout.

David sets forth a very well developed world and characters who let the story shine through. She does build on the events of the previous novel so I encourage readers to read the stories in order. The vividly lifelike characters allowed me to travel through the story w

The second novel picks up right where book one left off. Legacy Lost follows the story of Eric, the Taggart’s family friend and Shelby Taggart. Shelby has the ability to feel other people’s emotions around her. This scares and fascinates Eric because he’s always carried strong feelings for Shelby for many years. Shelby has also feels something for Eric too, but doesn’t want to admit for fear of ruining the re

Longing and Love's Legacy

Shelby Taggart and Eric Patterson have been friends since childhood. Eric is also the best friend of Shelby's twin, Kerr. As often happens, friendship turns to interest, and then turns into love. Sadly, Shelby's special gift has kept her from intimate relationships, and Eric's issues with loss and control have kept him from pursuing the woman of his heart. What happens next is part of the subject of Legacy Lost by Jillian David.

This is the story of Shelby Taggart and Eric Patterson a close family friend. Shelby like the rest of her family has special powers; hers are to read people’s emotions and to locate people. The use of the powers has consequences to Shelby though and it puts her into several bad predicaments. Due to her ability to feel others feelings Shelby has kept to herself and stayed out of relationships so that she doesn't have to be so drained. Eric has been close to the family since he was a boy and has h ...more

Having read book 1 in this series, I couldn’t wait to get started on book 2. I do want to add though – even though I have read book 1, I don’t think that it would be required to read this book.

I love the paranormal aspect of this story though. The story itself just drew me in and I couldn’t get enough of it. Eric and Shelby were both great characters, and you could tell they both had chemistry that they were both trying to ignore.

One thing that I really loved about the book is where Shelby is a

Legacy Lost is book 2 in Jillian David's Hell's Valley series. I was a little worried when I chose this book being as I had not read the first book in the series. But I was very happy to find that I did not need book one to be able to figure out book 2. I am after reading this book looking for book 1 and eagerly waiting book 3. This is also my first Jillian David book and I am hooked. The book is fast paced a real page turner.

This is Shelby and Eric's story. I feel badly for both of them. Shelby has this power that is overwhelming to say the least, and Eric is in love with her but needs to shut down his thoughts to be around her. I can't imagine. They definitely have chemistry and there is a romance going on amidst everything else.

I think this book ventured a bit further into the paranormal than the last. Evil seems to be lurking around every corner. Shelby's powers keep morphing. Ruth and Odie have entered the Tagge

I really enjoyed this story about Shelby and Eric. Having read book 4 then book 1, I finally see how most of the story pieces fit together! The suspense generated by the evil shadow was well balanced by the fun bantering between many of the main characters. Shelby also had some interesting confrontations with Wyatt Brand. Needless to say, wooden doweling and shopping carts will now elicit some new images for self defence! As more pieces to the puzzle are reviewed about the conflict between the T ...more

Another wonderful, immersive story by Jillian. With characters that are well developed and beautifully described scenery.

Although it can be read as a stand alone the story will have more depth if you have read the first in the series. This time it is Shelby who is under the spotlight with her talent of being able to locate those who are lost and know just what people are thinking if her shields are not fully up. Having loved and lost before, can she risk opening herself completely again or will

Book two in the Hell's Valley focuses on Shelby and Eric. They have both secretly had a thing for the other for years, and after she put herself in harms way to save Sara and Zach and Eric learned the truth about her psychic abilities, well tensions have run high. He has become far more protective and in her eyes overbearing. She has a stubborn self-sacrificing attitude that he has run out of patience with. On a rescue mission she uses her abilities again causing her to go blind for several hou ...more

Initial Thoughts: Overall I liked it. Both Eric and Shelby are strong personalities. I wasn't sure if they could find a middle ground. Especially considering Shelby's abilities. However, I did like their journey, though they tended to run hot and cold; fly off the handle and then think. But that was consistent with their personalities and helped to make their relationship that much more real and their resolution that much sweeter. The continuing plot of the Brands just gets weirder and weirder.. ...more

The Taggarts are still holding on. The barn may have burnt down but no lives were lost.
Shelby is as stubborn as ever despite being injured.
And evil is still watching them.........
As I hate cliffhangers, I shall greatly look forward to reading the entire series
I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. This is my honest review.

Absolutely nothing not to be grateful for, this might be book two in the series but it is every bit as accomplished as the first book and equally as absorbing, I was hooked.
Eric and Shelby have secretly had feelings for each other for longer than they are probably prepared to admit but when he learns the truth about just how gifted she really is, the way he is with and towards her changes and it doesn’t go down well.

This is the second book in the series and I loved it!!! Like book one of this series it was suspenseful from the beginning. This book focuses on Shelby and Eric.

Shelby Taggert has had a thing for Eric which is her twin's best friend and business partner. She has the burden of a psychic ability to read people's emotions and even get inside of the person's head that she is dealing with. Eric discovers she has this ability in the first book when they all go on a rescue mission to save Z

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

I was a little neutral on the first book in this series, but got on far better with this one, understood the storyline and characters more.

We met Eric and Shelby in that last book, and learned of her Gift, and how much the newly developed parts cost her.
She's still recovering from that and the fire, Eric is still trying to hold back his growing feelings, the family still struggling to pull through after the last di

When a book says on the cover that it is the second book in a series, especially if it is paranormal romance, I tend to go into the experience at least a little skeptical. Unfortunately, the genre is saturated by series that rely on contrived cliffhanger endings in order to cajole readers into continuing on. And, more often than not, each installment tends to expect that all readers have read all of the books that came before. As this is the second book in the series, I cannot say with veracity ...more
