Excellent Historical Romance
5 stars By Iola, Oct 21 2017
I am a big fan of Elizabeth Camden's novels.

She has a unique ability to find lesser-known historical events or situations, and build a novel around them. A Dangerous Legacy includes the politcal background to the buiding of the first Panama Canal, PTSD, and the invention of the plumbing valve which enables us to have water pressure in multi-storey buildings. It also includes the slightly more familiar telegraph operators, and the necessity for British peers to marry American heiresses to shore up their crumbling estates.


C willing to do the right thing even at a personal cost to himself. He's British through and through, almost the perfect gentleman. And Lucy was my favorite type of heroine-intelligent, independent, and hard-working. They made a great couple. I loved their conversations and banter, and wanted them to be together. It was r good to see their romance build bit by bit as they got to know each other.

A Dangerous Legacy had  more suspense than I was expecting, but I'm a romantic suspense fan so that worked for me! It certainly made the novel hard to put down.

Recommended for fans of Deeanne Gist. A Dangerous Legacy had a few time-appropriate nods to Christianity, but the faith aspect wasn't even a minor plot point.

Thanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
