Living on Earth has changed for the O’Hara family. With the human population almost totally annihilated by an alien invasion, things have changed for the gifted group. A precog, Caleb’s visions foretold of the invasion and with the help of his brothers he was able to move to higher ground and together make a home with his wife and brothers. Janie, the woman of all three brothers’ dreams, has lived as the sole wife of Caleb, but if his visions are to be believed things are about to change. On a planet where there are so few women, all three brothers will need to establish an intimate connection with Janie if they want to survive the second coming of the aliens and create the one thing that holds the future of all humans and aliens in its palms.

First let me say I really tried to be open minded while reading this story. I love the different and erotic as much or more than the next person, but sometimes the more out on a limb a story goes the less believable and enjoyable it winds up being. Hara’s Legacy has an interesting plot with the damage done to earth and the change in the evolution of humans. I found the alien interactions to be pretty interesting and quite creative. The dynamics of the relationship between the brothers and Janie, their shared wife, was where this story started to lose me. Haven’t the “I want to share my lover with my sibling plot” lost its appeal yet? One good thing about this “needed” quad relationship is that there was at least some expected emotional upheavals. I think there should be hesitancy and guilt when you start boffing your brother’s wife, no matter if you’ve always wanted her. I understood the necessity of what was happening. I just think for myself, as a reader, this type of relationship rubs me the wrong way no matter how enticing and sexually explosive the encounters are written. I do take my hat off to Bianca D’Arc because the heat level in this story was awesome. I just expect that talented authors can come up with a story that is just as exciting without the need to have family members sharing lovers.
