Daniel worked hard at college, using coping strategies to shut himself off from any situation that might hurt. But, persistent nightmares and fears for his future drive him to revisit the past. Now Legacy might be the only place to give him a chance at peace.
After the tragic loss of his parents, Corey is head of the family now, and the welfare of his three younger sisters are what matters the most. Corey is desperate to find Daniel, tell him the truth and somehow convince him to keep secrets. Even if this leads to heartbreak.
When the world crumbles around Corey, and Daniel is running scared, Legacy ranch is their only hope.
🤠A new story set in the world of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes and the Double D Ranch, Texas.🤠
Daniel has worked very hard to learn to cope with, or to bury, his past so he can move forward but the nightmares won't stop. After losing his parents and uncle, Corey is left to raise his three sisters but when he uncovers a secret he sets out to learn the truth and to help those who were hurt by it. Sometimes the past just won't let go until fate steps in. Will Legacy Ranch be able to help Daniel? Will the ranch offer answers to Corey? Does fate's plan have Daniel and Corey's paths leading to happiness?
HOLY HANNAH BATMAN!!! The tears, the smiles, the heartaches, the healing, and of course a cameo or two of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes never hurts. If you are looking for a happy, fluffy, romantic comedy than Daniel is not for you. That's not to say there isn't happy moments or a HEA because there is but the journey getting there is far from fluffy and humorous.
Daniel's life has not been easy, he tries hard to overcome it but the past is always right outside the gate like the evil rabbits trying to get into my garden and eat my flowers. I think of the three men in the Legacy Ranch series: Kyle, Gabriel, and Daniel, Daniel appears to be at a better place than either Kyle or Gabriel were when Jack's ranch is the next stop on their journey. Appearances can be deceiving though.
As for Corey, his experiences pale in comparrison to Daniel's but that doesn't mean they aren't heartbreaking and difficult to move on from. Learning the truth about a loved one can be a very difficult thing to overcome, especially when you repeatedly find yourself choking on foot-in-mouth syndrome. His heart is in the right place even if his words are not.
What I loved most about Daniel, isn't the HEA but the journey the boys went through to get there. Some might find it hard to feel Corey's pain because he didn't suffer the pain, humiliation, and degradation that Daniel and other boys went through at the Bar Five. I knew he didn't have that pain to cope with but he had the lies he discovers to accept so for me, Daniel is the perfect example that horrific events are like ripples in a pond and that there are those who are effected beyond the point where the stone hits the water. Heartbreaking but uplifting at the same time, survival takes many forms and no matter how hard it can be if you have to keep going.
