Coming in 2020, a full-length, standalone novel in Corinne Michaels Salvation Society World.
Set in the CRAZY GOOD world, LEGACY will be a crossover novel featuring Aarabelle Dempsey and Luke Hart.
Aarabelle Dempsey always knew her true destiny and master plan. She was merely prolonging the execution by travelling the world for a year after she graduated the Naval Academy. A hidden romantic, she anticipated falling in love at some point. A British up and coming recording artist tempted her with love, but instead of proposing marriage, he stomped on her heart by having a sordid, highly publicized affair with a media mogul debutante.
With Aarabelle’s mom, Natalie at the helm of CJJ Public Relations at their San Diego branch, and her Dad, Liam now finishing his career as a SEAL BUD/S instructor in Coronado, she is back to seize what is rightfully hers and heal her broken heart.
Aarabelle will be the first female Navy SEAL.
One teammate, Luke Hart, has his own LEGACY to fulfill, and even though she’s off limits, and as complicated as their friendship becomes, Luke finds himself questioning everything about what he thought he wanted.
Luke and Aarabelle might be following the legacy set forth for them by their parents, but the love they find along the journey is legendary…and forbidden.
This was the perfect introduction Robinson and her writing by doing a crossover with the children of two beloved characters.
Two young people shaped by their parents to love the Navy for different reasons and they have a legacy to carry on. It’s not easy being in either shoes. Arabella especially. I admired her throughout the book, wanting to do it on her own terms and letting no one stand in her way.
Luke was an interesting choice given his past history with her. Childhood memories are always rose tinted to extent so I wasn’t surprise the way Luke questioned things. He was determined to forge his own path but Arabella really threw him off.
Obviously with these two in close quarters and the fact they are training to be Seals. There is the element of forbidden. I enjoyed it as it forced them to make them work for it and balance everything out.
Robinson really made readers think about the role of woman in the navy by giving us Arabella. It really challenged Luke and brought to the table , a story that could be reality at some point. Who knows but it’s beautiful story.
