Product Description

Product Description

Trying to get ahead isn’t easy. It’s even more difficult when your sense of honor and integrity is being tested when taking the high road. Being kicked down when working with a high standard gets old real quick and Marvel Slatter is no stranger to this cruel way of life.

He’s idolized his Granddad and brothers growing up on Silver Star Ranch while working his fingers to the bone branding their legacy.

What happens when an honorable man is pushed too far?

He snaps. Seeking revenge blinds Marvel. He demands one thing and one thing only: his fair share of money for training a group of colts. Marvel refuses to let Saint take advantage of his family one more time. Enough is enough in his book.

With his brothers hovering over him, Marvel is forced to lie to his family. He’s not proud of it, but convinces himself it’s in the best interest of Silver Star to stand up to Saint.

His decisions lead to fatal tragedies. Hurt so real and deep, no one is safe or promised the guarantee of a tomorrow.

Will Silver Star Ranch and the Slatters triumph in the face of adversity or will their legacy fold forever?

5.0 out of 5 stars A legacy that will stay in my heart! 15 January 2016
By Tiffany Williams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"It's a simple equation really-take a ruthless villain, add in a hardworking and loyal family and you get the classic fairytale of the good guy getting screwed over. Gossip, have your own opinion, but never take from my table."

*Stands up*
*Raises arms*
*Bows down to HJ Bellus*

A-freakin-mazing ending to this wonderful series!!

Throughout this series, I have waited for Marvel's story. He was the little brother that kind of stood in the background for a while...until he couldn't take anyone hurting his family anymore. He had a drive unlike his brothers. He was willing to go above and beyond a dangerous situation, but sometimes those chances go too far.

Clover was a girl with a head full of dreams and a heart of gold. She put all she had into becoming the nurse she dreamt of being. Because of that, fate was placed in her healing hands. Her life would forever change because of a family full of cowboys and a grandfather who brought them into her world.

"I've never seen someone so determined and damn right hell bent on not being saved. Yet, when my lips touched his marred skin I've never felt higher."

Marvel and Clover butted heads...a lot, but that didn't mean Clover couldn't try to get through Marvel's broken spirit. I'm not going to lie, they each had their own way of breaking my heart. Whether it was because of Clover's determination to become successful no matter what her family said. Or the fact that Marvel was so broken, he couldn't even see past the pain.

I knew this book was going to be a doozy! I knew my emotions woud run high throughout the pages. I didn't expect to tear up in almost every. single. chapter!!

"I'd save you all over again. I'm sorry, but I would. I barely know you Marvel Slatter, and I know that you're worth it."

"I know deep in my gut I'm branding a legacy and getting our pride back."

I also loved that, like the other two books, HJ Bellus incorporates all the characters in every book. You don't feel like you're missing any of their stories.

The Slatter family is a tight knit group, and the way they rally around each other is wonderful. This story shows that even when one member feels their world falling apart, the others are right there to pick him back up and push him forward again.

"She saved me, and I've destroyed her."

"I didn't pick him, my heart did."

Thank you, HJ Bellus!

This book was everything I hoped it would be and more! The emotions, the tears, the plot twists and turns, the swoonworthy moments, and the feeling of a family united is what made this book-this series-what it was!

The ending left me a blubbering mess, but it was absolute perfection! Well done, HJ!

"Maybe we can find each other."
"I think we can, Clover."

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvel has stolen and branded his own legacy in my heart. Best book in the Silver Star Ranch series!!! 23 January 2016
By RentasticReads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Okay, I may have said before that Rules of the Ride is my favorite in the series, but now I may have changed my mind. This—this book cannot compare to that one and 8 Second Decision. Branding A Legacy is on a completely whole other level and I am in awe. Pure and utter awe. It was so different and just brutally beautiful. The way it was written, the way things were described in detail and explained graphically made me feel so much more going deeper into the story. And the action started right off the bat which just messed with all my nerves and heart. I mean, a couple of chapters in and my heart already wanted to leap out of my chest. My adrenaline was already pumping double time and I was right on the edge of my seat. It all just took off from there and I fell in deep with Marvel Slatter.

Marvel is the youngest of the Slatter brothers and he was always the quiet, calculating and intelligent one. But when he saw how much their family's life and legacy—the Silver Star Ranch—has been drastically going downhill, been messed with and stomped on, he knew he had to act and do something about it to the point that he (almost) didn't care if it was a suicide mission. He had one thing in mind—he has to save his family's ranch and get that redemption they all needed even if he had to go behind his brothers' backs and do it alone. And then they could all live free. Although what he did was rash and stupid, I really can't blame him because if he didn't do it, he wouldn't have met his match in Clover or things would still be the same for his family. Or even worse. I seriously fell in love with Marvel. His personality was just perfectly imperfect. Yes, he had his douchey, stubborn moments, especially in the beginning with Clover, but he had so much going on, brewing inside himself that he was struggling to deal with. If Clover wasn't there or they didn't meet, hell, I would've went to Marvel's rescue and saved him myself. (Jesus, now that I'm recalling everything that happened while I'm writing this, it's all crashing back down and my heart wants to explode all over again from the emotions brought about by this book.)

Clover Lee has her own secrets, issues and reservations. But she's truly a caring, selfless and very loving lady. She may be a nurse, but all that care and concern she has for the Slatters comes straight from her heart and soul. She treated and considered them her family, especially since her own family is so whacked up, even back when she didn't know the Slatters that well then. She may have grown up her whole life in the city, but once the Slatters took her in, she never hesitated to change and try out living in the ranch with them. Heck, she embraced it even. Personally, I admire the hell out of Clover. If anyone deserves salvation, I think it's this woman. She has a pure heart and she not only cared for one Slatter, but all of them. Especially Granddad. Her dynamic with the family is just perfect and such a joy to see. Yes, she's lucky to have found a new family with the Slatters, but I think they're pretty much lucky to have her as an addition to the family as well.

And let's not forget Granddad here. He truly is a legacy himself. He had so much strength and words that will strike so deep, they'll be left engrained in your head no matter what. He was the pillar in this entire series. It never would've been as amazing as it is, if not for this wise old man. He'll always be the great Marve Slatter who's stern, yet loves intensely, puts his family before and beyond anything else, and packs a cocky sense of humor like no other.

It has been such a great journey reading this series, from the very first book until this one. It will teach you so many life lessons while you go about the life of each Slatter. It isn't just about the country/ranch living. It isn't just about the sexy, smart and confident cowboys. It isn't only about the romance. It's about family, pride and redemption. It's about a legacy that has been saved and redeemed and will live on for many, many years. HJ Bellus has most definitely poured so much heart and soul into this series and the entire journey it takes you on is worth every minute of your time and every beat of your heart. Branding A Legacy specifically will be unforgettable for me with everything that happened and all the emotions it was able to bring out and stir inside of me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great read! 22 January 2016
By RebeccaA - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Marvel Slater is the youngest of the 3 slater boys. He's the most determine and set on branding a legacy. After his worthless father jeopardizes the ranch and the boys have to settle debts marvel is bound and determined to not let dirty Saint win at everything.

Clover is a Cali girl. Well not really, she's shy, reserved, and kind, nothing like her family. She is sent to the small town from California to live with her aunt and uncle. Upon arriving there she gets a job doing what she loves and was born to do, be a nurse.

Marvel thought he had plans set in stone and was going to get to take down Saint, only it was an ambush causing marvel to loose both his best friend and an attempt at loosing at his life. Clover was on her way home from the hospital after a shift of taking care of old man slater when in the middle of the road she came in contact with the missing slater brother. Nothing could prepare either of them on the journey and trial life was about to set these 2 on.

Whoah! You know they always say they save the best for last! And even though I love all 3 slater brothers marvel has by far got to be my favorite brother! And how could you not fall in love with clover and continue to fall in love with granddad! This series is great and I hate to see it end but I'm glad everything came full circle!

5.0 out of 5 stars and it was so much better than expected 15 January 2016
By laurie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I remember seeing HJ Bellus at an author event shortly after "Rules of the Ride" was release. I told her she couldn't end a book that way, and that she crushed me. After finishing this book, she was able to put me back together again. This was one bumpy ride of a book though, with lots of anger and heart break. For a minute there, I thought that It wasn't going to end well. But it did, and it was so much better than expected. In this book, we meet Marvel, who feels the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's angry at what his father has caused him and his brothers with their ranch, and decides to take matters in his own hands. However, even the best laid plans don't end well, and all he wants is to die. Enter Clover, and was a shining spot, for this family. Not only could she hold her own with Grandpa, but with Marvel as well. She just wanted a family, and she found with the Slatters. She was able to save Marvel, not only from the "bad guys," but also from himself. Marvel was able to finally forgive himself and find love and comfort from Clover. Clover was such a strong female, who had a tough life, but she was able to see the bright spots through it all. This series was a great one and a definite reread for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect ending to this trilogy, complete with epilogue and a glance into the future! 3 February 2016
By Julie G. (Ginger Snaps) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the 3rd book for the Slatter brothers, which tells the story of brother Marvel (love that name!) and Clover. When I read the first book, I was all about oldest brother Maverick. When I read the second book, I decided I like Merek better. And then come Marvel and he might be my favorite.

You know how some books have a ton of angst and you find yourself wanting to smack the male or female protagonist, or both?? This is NOT that book. Marvel and Clover know what they want and don't play games. I LOVE that.

This book also has some suspense as the back story from the first book continues along to a dramatic conclusion. Author H.J. Bellus made me laugh, cry, and swoon with this book. And not only did we get an epilogue, we also got a "Where the Slatters are now..." which I loved so much! Why can't more authors do this? We always want to know what happens to the characters we fall in love with, years in the future.

I truly enjoyed this book as well as this entire trilogy. Maybe we can get a spin-off with Sterling???
