Shelley is a werewolf on the run. After being captured for some thirty-plus years, she’s attempting to adjust to a free life. Working as a waitress and trying to piece things back together, she’s shocked when she meets James. He’s a werewolf who recognizes what she is – even if she doesn’t recognize the same in him. One thing leads to another, Shelley loses her job, and James takes her under his protection. As he attempts to uncover her secrets, he slowly brings her out of her shell. However, her past is a haunted and tragic one, and it will take time, patience, and understanding for James to claim Shelley as his own.

Legacy Found, the third book in the Legacy series, has a promising premise. You have a scarred woman, a strong, alpha hero, and the bad guys who want to put an end to their happily ever after. From the start, you learn the tortures Shelley endured, which are horrific to say the least. As an older alpha, James is the perfect man to protect and guide her. Although he’s mourned the loss of his mate for years, he feels he’s been given a second chance with Shelley. Their chemistry is immediate, even though Shelley fights it, and you know it won’t be long until they find comfort in each other’s arms.

The only criticisms to be found in the work are that it tells us what's happening throughout, instead of showing us, and the several instances in which the past of the hero is repeated. James recalls his former mate many times, as well as his disbelief that he could find love in the arms of another woman. It became unnecessary, as the reader is more than aware of his feelings. Fortunately, the interactions between Shelley and James overshadow the negative aspects of the book.

Shelley is a likeable heroine, and James is delicious as a hero who will defend her at all costs. Legacy Found shines as they cave to their feelings, accept them, and discover a world of pleasure and acceptance.

Fans of sizzling paranormal romance will enjoy Legacy Found. The twists and turns will keep you guessing, while the danger ups the ante and keeps things interesting. If you’ve not read this series, be sure to place them on your TBR pile.

I’m looking forward to more by N.J. Walters.
