The Legend by Donna Grant
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A LONE STAR LOVER
They live to protect. They live to fight for honor and justice. They live to love the women who have captured their souls. These are the Sons of Texas, from New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant.
In The Legend, Callie Reed doesn’t need a man to protect her. An expert sharpshooter and renegade hacker, this Texas-born spitfire’s got the skills and the courage to stand up to any danger―no matter how deadly. But when she becomes the target of a shadowy organization known as the Saints, Callie is forced to team up with the one man she can’t outshoot: the gorgeous, and infuriating, Lone Star legend named Wyatt Loughman…
A Delta Force Colonel with a rock-hard body and stone-cold heart, Wyatt has been teasing and tormenting Callie since they were playmates on his family’s ranch. Of course, he’s wildly attracted to the fiery, strong-willed Callie. But he’s always hidden his feelings behind a wall of Texas tough and military cool, even as he’s burning up with desire. Can Wyatt save Callie’s life―without putting her love in the line of fire?

Callie is tough and strong, having broken away from a criminal family to live a more honorable life when the brothers’ father, Orrin, gave her a job and a chance. While Wyatt walked away from her when they were younger, she stayed true and loyal to his family.
I’m a huge Donna Grant fan. Having read her PNR stories, I expect over-the-top heroes, tons of action and spicy love scenes. Full of suspense, the book is action-packed but the hero is too big, a “legend.” I got it, but his deity-status didn’t completely fit the “human” world and was at times eye-roll worthy. Wyatt thought really, really highly of himself and so did Callie, the tough girl swooning over his magnificence in the sexy moments. His dominance and commands were arrogant instead of sexy. That could be a preference issue on my part, others may find it appealing.
The romance is a slow burn and was impacted by how much is going on in the story. Bioweapons, her horrible family, bad guys, the action was non-stop. The story ends in a place where all the brothers have a happy ending, but open for more stories.
I liked the book but didn’t love it. There was too much violence and death, it overshadowed the romance.
