The Legend - BT banner.jpg

THE LEGEND is a slow-kindling fire that, before you know it, has consumed you. Lies, twists, turns, passion, devotion, and a love that, though tried, never breaks. Dylan Allen masterfully weaves them all into this unputdownable, compelling tapestry of a tale.” — Kennedy Ryan, Amazon bestselling author

The Legend, an all-new steamy, second-chance romance from Dylan Allen, is available now!


The love of a lifetime deserves a million chances.

Remington Wilde had heartbreak written all over him.

He was the most beautiful boy I’d ever seen.

When I looked into his midnight eyes,

I saw a happy ending I’d never dared to dream of.

I was seventeen the first time he asked for my heart,

I didn’t hesitate to hand it over.

In exchange, he gave me the best summer of my life.

He was my first everything.

Falling in love felt written in the stars…

But our legend, it turns out, was all a lie.

And when our story ended, all I had was a broken heart.

Now, he wants a second chance.

But this time, I’ve got more to lose than just my heart.

When the lies that pulled us apart, threaten again, it will take more than sweet words from his sinful mouth to convince me.

He says the love of a lifetime deserves a million chances,

But am I strong enough to fall again?

The Legend of Remington Wilde is a story you do not want to miss!

The amazing saga continues in this second book of the Rivers Wilde series. While this can be read as a standalone, there will be spoilers for book 1 so I recommend reading The Legacy first. There is more family drama with intrigue and plot twists you never saw coming. There is pain and betrayal but there is also a story of young love turned second chance love story that will melt your heart and have you swooning!

I fell so hard and fast at the feet of Remington Wilde! He is the heir to the Wilde empire. He was born and raised a leader. He was sexy and confident but also sweet and kind hearted, a philanthropist who chose to live his life with purpose and use his power and wealth to help others. Raised by a mother and grandfather that taught him to put himself and the family first. Yet he chose to carve his own path and set less selfish goals for himself. Kal was the girl who helped him discover his true purpose.

Kal and Remi meet as teenagers and there is an instant connection that they both held on to despite time and distance that would separate them. This story had all the sweetness and tenderness of first time true love. Even young Remi had me swooning! Their banter was so fun and playful and their chemistry was a thing of beauty. When they reconnect as adults, older Remington was nothing short of magnificent in the bedroom. His dominance was so alluring and sensuality oozed from him. I would play hide and seek with him anytime and anyday! (you’ll get that reference when you read the book).

These two have to work hard to get their HEA. Remi’s mother does not approve of their relationship and her medling causes a lot of problems for them. Remi also has to be dealing with family secrets that have now come to light and he is struggling to deal with these revelations. There is so much scheming and conspiring that made the background story surrounding these lovers so fascinating.

This was such an amazing, beautiful second chance love story and I am loving the way this series is developing. With each book, the author has us wanting for so much more! This family saga is just brilliant and I can’t wait to see what else the families of Rivers Wilde has in store for us.

I can see the heat in her eyes and right away I know.

“You watched me?” I ask.

Her dark eyes widen, but she doesn’t look away.

“Yes.” She swallows hard.

“Did you like it?” I ask her.

“Remi,” she admonishes sharply, but I don’t miss the way she shifts her stance. She liked it.

“I want to hear you say it.” I ask again.

She nods and sucks her fat lower lip into her mouth.

I want to suck it, too.

“You know you could have gotten in and watched up close. You could have helped if you wanted.”

I circle her wrists and hold her hands in front of my face.

“They’re a little small, they wouldn’t fit all the way ’round.”

She draws in a big gulp of air and takes a step closer to me.

“Really?” she whispers her eyes flit down to my pants.

“I would have covered your hands with mine. We could have done it together.”

I let go of her wrists and slide my hands up so that we’re palm to palm.

Skin to skin.

It’s not nearly enough.

I’m this close to crossing a line I shouldn’t. But, when it comes to Kal, I can’t seem to help myself.

“Remi…we shouldn’t.” Her voice is husky and her fingers flex a little against mine.

“Yeah, probably not,” I agree, but I see the reflection of my own disappointment flash in her eyes and it emboldens me.

I know I should stand down. Even if it feels like it, we aren’t a good idea.

But she’s so tempting. And when it comes to her, I can’t seem to get a grip on my control.

I link our fingers and bring her hand to my lips for a kiss. She inhales sharply and looks up at me through the inky fringe of her lashes.

Her gaze lingers longingly on my mouth and I smile.

“Oh, Kal. We have a dilemma.” I drawl.

“Really? Then why do you sound amused? A dilemma isn’t generally a good thing.” The corners of her mouth turn up in a small smile.

“It’s a very good thing…because even though you don’t want to be, and I absolutely shouldn’t be, we’re interested in each other.”

“Well, that’s the perfect recipe for an unhappy ending, if I ever heard one.”
