THE COMPLETE SERIES CONSISTING OF ALL FOUR LOVE'S LEGACY NOVELS.....(Originally published by Renaissance E-Books) A SPELLBINDING SAGA Of ROMANCE, PASSION AND REINCARNATION! In the year 1799 in Cornwall, England at Cardon Hall, four people are intertwined in a hope situation that ends in murder. Almost two centuries later the four protagonists are reborn to meet and repeat or rectify the past wrong. They are Lance Stevens, Kenn Michael Harrison, James Brandon and Claire Deveraux. In 1974 Claire and Lance, both attractive, very articulate and intelligent, encounter each other when seventeen-year-old Claire goes to Cornwall for the summer holidays. It's love and recognition at first sight on Lance's part, because he's been haunted by nightmares of the 1700s.

Lance invites Claire to Cardon Hall, his family's ancestral home, where she, too, begins to experience very vivid memories of the past. Lance is convinced that he has found his ancient love. Claire on the other hand is dismayed by what is happening to her. However, her best friend Elsa, familiar with reincarnation through her spiritualist grandmother helps Claire to understand better and fully accept her connection with Lance. Initially, Lance and Claire's relationship is almost like a fairy tale, despite the feelings of doom both have stemming from the tragic past that hangs over them. Then Claire's mother dies and she is relieved to have to join the rest of her family in Canada. For, as much as she loves Lance, Claire does not feel ready to get married at seventeen.

Lance gives Claire his ring, and she promises to return. In Toronto Claire is very happy living with her sister Liana and her husband Peter. However, her bitchy, jealous sister, Helena who has sponsored Claire into Canada and is technically her legal guardian, uses every opportunity she gets to be cruel to Claire. Soon, Claire realizes she wants to be with Lance some day, but only when the time is right. Following an attack of acute appendicitis, Claire encounters Dr.

James Brandon, who saves her life. However, she cannot comprehend the immediate distaste she feels towards him, is even more disturbed by the nightmares of that past life their meeting triggers. Resolving to just focus on her future with Lance, and put Dr. Brandon out of her mind once she is no longer in his care, Claire doesn't that James, a man with a secret and dangerous past, who has become obsessed by her. In his obsession James will stop at nothing to possess her. Not even rape or murder! After being raped by James, she learns Lance has perished in an Andean plane crash. She marries a seemingly contrite James when she finds she is pregnant from the rape and becomes the target of his obsessive and murderous jealousy. In a seemingly impossible situation along with her precious baby son, Claire has a gift that will be instrumental in her escape. She meets Kenn Michael Harrison who propels her pop super stardom as her manager. He is also the one man who can explain the mysterious nightmares of an ancient murder that have haunted her for so long. Soon she begins to expect that she is fated to die violently at her husband's hands the same way the woman who haunts her dreams died....
