I would give this book 6 stars if I could, it was absolutely incredible, and a great way to continue the Legend series!!!
It continues the story of the Seelie Fae and the impending war they are fighting with Gaiscioch, and the Unseelie Fae from the Dark Realm.
The story introduces us to several new characters, and let me tell you I have a few that I would go into the book for myself, if I could. ;)
*Dante, is a Royal Fae Prince, who is given an assignment, from the Queen, to watch over BJ Mulroy and Brian Carrick. Dante has not had the experience with humans that Prince Breslyn has, and is worried that he is not the best candidate. This changes once Dante meets BJ and he is determined to protect her.
*BJ Mulroy, is a Fios, who is able to see both Seelie and Unseelie Fae. She has a lot to learn about herself and the powers she has not yet realized that she is capable of. Once Brian Carrick walks into her bar, this puts events in motion that will change her in ways she never thought possible.
*Brian Carrick, is a Druid high priest, who finds himself in New York for business and meets BJ Mulroy. They become fast friends and he realizes that she is the answer to his prayers. He shares his secret with her and makes a "Proposition" to her to help him ensure that his family home doesn't end up in the wrong hands.
The story that unfolds between these characters is one that I truly enjoyed, and I'm so grateful that I found this series. It has all of the things you love in a book: suspense, love, heartbreak, betrayal, action, shock, and lots of hot steamy romance. This book will keep you enthralled from the first page, and you will find (like I did) that you are unable to put it down. Thanks again Claudy for another AMAZING book!!!

Trapped by Claudy Conn
Legend Series Book 3
BJ Mulroy’s life hadn’t been easy. Losing her parents at age twelve and then living with Aunt Lisa who wasn’t really “parent” material and who misused BJ’s meager inheritance. And yet BJ was a survivor. Working and trying to make her way through school. One day all her struggles came to a stand still when she met a wealthy Irishman who knew her deepest secret. He made her a proposition she couldn’t refuse and it would change who she was forever.
The Legend series evolves a bit with every book. The veil between the Seelie and Unseelie world is getting thinner. Gaiscioch is getting stronger, but then so are the hero's and heroines and the war is getting closer. We meet Dante the Royal Prince of Lugh, who has avoided humans for centuries and is now sent to oversee BJ. A job that should have been hands off and watch from a distance, right? Nope, not when you are dealing with one of these alpha Royal Fae males who sees a beautiful woman. And then there is Daremont Calahan Carrick from the seventeenth century….or at least his full size life-like painting that dominates the study at Castlesand.

Title: Trapped (Legend #3)
Author: Claudy Conn
Page count: 234
Genre: Paranormal romance
My rating: 5/5
Published: December 20th, 2011
Summary: BJ is a Fios (Seer) which means she can see the Fae-dark or light, through their Glamour and their invisibility. The war between the two forces of Fae has heated up and BJ is being drawn into the fray.
There is a 17th century hunk who wants to help-but he is trapped. There is a murderer helping the Dark Fae who desperately wants BJ dead, and a Prince of Fae--Danté who is on the spot willing to keep her close. BJ has reasons to distrust everyone...and she does
These books just keep getting better and better. As more of the series goes by we get introduced to new fae and worster... More worst problems... Yah get what I’m saying I hope. Well I loved the painting problem in the book, that was amazing, and I was not expecting it. :)
I love this cover!
SO once again we’re faced with the love triangle. Who will BJ accept, and truthfully you don’t know for a while. If you like suspense that builds up to a tidal wave of emotions then this is your book.
Again with the painting, it was different and you wouldn't expect it unless you were a super genius. He is my favorite character in the series so far, a certain fae character coming close behind him. ;)
Now the battle is really coming together. The war is starting. Just thought you’d like to know that, even if you already knew it. Easily entertained, er the fights are well detailed, but not overly done a super long - I can keep up with it.
BJ’s relationship with Brian was amazing. It was about the physicalness of a relation, but the mental stability of keeping one alive. Let’s just say if he the murderer (not telling you;} ) was alive in real life, I’d cut him and do what women do best. Yell and attack him like a savage animal.

If you read my reviews, you will notice that I did, in fact, review two other books from this series in the past couple of days. I can not help myself. I can not stop reading them. I stayed up most of the night reading this one. I may have a Claudy Conn problem ;). There were a couple of things in this book I really loved. I loved BJ's relationship with Bryan. The friendship and kinship they found with each other was easy to believe and understand as improbable as the situation was. I also really loved that this book connected the past to the present. I this was not my favorite in the series, but it still was a great read. It continued the main story arc nicely and introduced us to some new characters. I am really looking forward to the final "battle" when all of these characters will come together. I love this fae series!!!
