"Welcome, ladies, the next few weeks will decide your future. But before all that, let me introduce you to my son, Nicholas. To one of you, he'll be a future husband. To the rest, a nightmare who will haunt your dreams for whatever time you have left."

Born into privilege, Victoria Hamilton has endured a life of opulent captivity. Disallowed to associate with any men outside her kin, she ventures beyond her gilded cage vicariously, through the art books she adores and the adventures of her dear friend, Tamara. Nevertheless, this staid existence has left her naive and wildly unprepared when Victoria is finally allowed to debut into society... a debut unlike any other, with no place for the weak.

The arrogantly debauched Nicholas Cavendish, Earl of Lullington, knows he must marry on his thirtieth birthday to inherit his controlling father's dukedom. The five women selected for him will undergo depraved trials no genteel woman should ever be made to suffer. But for Nicholas, what begins as a means to an end quickly becomes a matter of the heart, thanks to one woman - the brave, beautiful and achingly innocent Victoria.

Sentiment and secrecy make for poor bedfellows, with the Cavendish family legacy being the biggest, most dangerous secret of all. And despite all she's endured to win her place by his side, Victoria may find Nicholas is truly the one in need of saving.

Book Two - Tainted Reason available January 2019

A. Zavarelli rated it FIVE STARS
I have so little time to read anymore but when I do I love a good dark romance. Legacy of Succession was dark romance at its best. Anna Edwards gave us a chillingly twisted read that I couldn't stop thinking about even when I put the book down. The characters haunted me and had me questioning their fates all the way up until the very end.
