About Melissa R. Smith

I'm an independent author looking for a following. I've spent the past ten years writing in various genre's, including historical and contemporary fanfiction. However, most all of my full length novels are of the area of paranormal romance. You'll find my books to have strong, adult female characters, a touch of humor and minimal sexual content. If you like my books, please spread the word!

"...Melissa R. Smith has continued her Sanguine Series with Legacy. However, it is a new setting filled with new faces. Each character, whether human or Sanguine, has secrets they hide, and fears that influence the choices he/she makes. Smith is an amazing story-teller. Readers will be on a roller coaster of emotions as they read this story, and they will be grabbing a calendar to count down the days until the release of the next book...."

The Twilight Series has ushered in a fashion for paranormals, especially paranormal romances. Then again,they've always been popular. There are paranormals among the classics. This contemporary paranormal romance made exciting reading with just the right amount of thrills and chills. I generally find this type of story exciting because it's generally rooted in the everyday world, but the paranormal world isn't far away and is always and ever ready to encroach upon us.

Since reading modern paranormals, I know that vampires are not necessarily the caped counts of classical novels and movies. I mean, are Sanguines for real? Do they really register themselves with the authorities and everything? It was too creepy reading about them, thinking that such creatures exist. I know that in order to engage the reader and make them fall in love with the vampire lover, it is necessary to present the hero as this handsome guy with deep, dark secrets who's head over heels in love with Ms. Average. That's what makes it work for the reader I guess, particularly in a romance.

But not being 'into' paranormals as such and being that bit squeamish about all things bloody, I felt the whole concept was just a bit too revolting. The concept of Devani being kept busy in one of the rooms of the Weeping Orchid while her lover Roman 'fed' and even had intimacy with another woman was something I just couldn't get past. I realise that Devani (where did she get that name from? It's lovely!)gave Roman up in the end because she was afraid of the vengeance from the Militia - the lovers will presumably reunite in the next book. But if Roman had psychic ability to read her mind over distances, why didn't he understand?

I don't wish to hurt the author, because it is a very high standard of fiction writing in my opinion and I enjoyed it. I probably just need the closure that comes with reading the next part of the story.

Nooooo! The only horrible part of this book is that I have to wait for part 2. I absolutely loved it. So much so that I stayed up till the early hours of the morning just so I could finish it.

I have to say that of all the books I have read of yours so far(the two on here)that this is your best. Longer than stuff I like to read, but not boring at all. Thank you for offering your coupon on your blog. Though, I still would have paid for it. I fell for Roman and his heartache. you are writing the second part, right?
