Remember the Alamo
(Legacy Book 1)
by Rain Carrington
My name is McCully Blaylock. This first story you are about to read is mine. Well, it ain’t mine alone. It’s about the family I come from. It might be a little worse than yours, or it might be better. There’s no telling.
With people so obsessed with looking up their family trees, this story and the others to follow may be a good warning to rethink that. Things you may find will leave a mark. Sure, you might see that you inherited your blue eyes from your great-grandmother, or that weird hairline from your great-great grandfather, but it’s the things that aren’t physical that can define you.
You can’t help what happened a hundred years before you were born, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have to pay the price for them, if your ancestors didn’t.
This series of stories is about these things, things that happened way back when and the men and women who must clean up after them or learn to live with them now. Our stories are connected, each linking to the next. Like a puzzle, only there ain’t no way to solve it all. Only little bits of it, like getting the outer edge done and missing all the insides.
What does happen, though, is that good does come outta all this. When those struggling with the past meet in the present, they pool their strength to be able to face whatever comes. Love does conquer all, even the things that seem like there is no way to beat them. Love, friendship and family, a family of your choosing more than one that you were cursed to be born into.
So, sit back and take in my tale. I thought it was just about the worst thing I could think of until I found out about the rest. Now I feel akin to other people, simply because we all have one thing in common.
Our ancestors are real dicks.
To live under the looming shadow of men who not only fought alongside legends, but were legends themselves, if only in their families. That’s what we deal with in the new series, Legacy.
The first story on this journey is about the man who introduced himself above, McCully Blaylock. Mac, as everyone calls him, is a timid man who worked his family’s ranch his entire life. When his father died, leaving massive debt, he is sure he’ll have to sell off the land that had been his family’s for generations.
His father had secrets, which Mac is starting to see, with the help of his brother, sister-in-law and a man who they sent to Mac to help him figure out what to do with the place. Leo Glover comes into his life like a twister across the prairie. He inserts himself into Mac’s life, frustrating him, but manages to bring out something long hidden. Mac’s own strength.
As he finds the truth of what was buried in his family’s past, Mac deals with it the best he can. Unable to sell the land, Leo suggests something unheard of in their part of Texas, but it’s something that can breathe new life into the ranch and the small town struggling nearby.
This is the first story, but they are all connected. It will take the combined efforts of the whole group to get through some of the trials thrown at these men, but with a little laughter, a lot of love and passion, they get through what was placed in their hands by people who came before them.
These are men determined to be better than those that came before them, and to make their own legacy.
About the Author
I love writing, it’s been my dream for many years, and in October of 2013, when my first book went live on Amazon, that dream came true.
Writing love stories that are centered on flawed but lovable characters is my passion. Finding love between people isn’t easy, nor should it be. Even in a book, there have to be obstacles for the story to feel real.
I am a mother of three amazing people, and three adorable fur babies. I live in Colorado, but love many other places besides my home. One state in particular is New Mexico, the state where I was born has always held a place in my heart.
People and places make my stories what they are. Each character I’ve written is a part of me in some way. Each place I write is as well. Adventures come in many ways, and each of my stories has taken me on an adventure that I treasure.
Come with me on my adventures and fall in love with my characters, as I have. I promise you will love the ride.
