The most soulful Kavanagh brother tackles the challenge of a lifetime—with a little help from the girl of his dreams.

“Fans of Lori Foster’s SBC Fighters series will love the MMA atmosphere of [Sarah] Robinson’s Legends.”—Library Journal

A topnotch manager and agent, Quinn Kavanagh pictures a life outside of his family’s renowned MMA gym. Beneath his sleek exterior, Quinn has a secret passion for sculpting. But after a nearly fatal motorcycle accident, he’s struggling just to walk again, let alone get back to the studio—and it doesn’t help that the doctor in charge of his physical therapy is his childhood crush. Quinn’s always ready for a fight, but the bittersweet sting of unrequited love has him begging for mercy.

Dr. Kiera Finley is determined to make her medical residency a success. Six years ago, she gave in and shared a single passionate night with Quinn. Now she’s just hoping the cocky lover from her past doesn’t derail her plans for the future. Little by little, though, Kiera gets to know another side of Quinn. She knew he was a family man, devoted to his parents and brothers, but he’s also a free spirit trapped in a cage—and only she has the key. To heal both Quinn’s body and soul, Kiera’s tempted to give him a special kind of medicine.

With their own heartwarming HEAs, Sarah Robinson’s Kavanagh Legends novels can be read together or separately:

Take the time to peruse this short from authoress, Sarah Robinson.
Introducing you to her beloved only she can.

This is an original short, short story about the Kavanagh brothers by Sarah Robinson written 18 months ago for the original blog tour after its release. This snippet introduces Rory Kavanagh, the oldest brother and the star of BREAKING A LEGEND and is set in the time right after Book 1 ends. It “breaks the 4th wall,” so to speak, and has the brothers talking directly to the readers about promoting the book, Breaking a Legend. There are no major spoilers in this short story.
It also introduces his younger brothers: Kane, Quinn, and Jimmy. Each book in the KAVANAGH LEGENDS series is a standalone book about one of the family members and their quest to find love in the rough and tumble world of mixed martial arts.

Kavanagh Legends Fun Short Story

“Remind me why I’m here again?” Quinn cocked one jet black eyebrow as he stared at his oldest brother, Rory, in the back offices of Legend, the family owned gym.
“Because you’re in the book, dumbass. The readers want to know about all of us.” Rory pushed the rest of his dark brown hair behind his ears and stared down at the interviewer’s questions on the paper in his hands.
“I’m not really in it though.” Jimmy spoke up.
“You’re definitely in it, Jimmy.” Kane laughed. “Mainly when you’re trying to keep the rest of us out of jail.”
“Don’t put that in the damn interview, I’ll lose my shield.” Jimmy glared at him, crossing his arms over his chest.
“If anyone isn’t in this book, it’s Kieran. I’m half a person these last two years.” Kane frowned, talking about his twin brother who’s currently serving a prison sentence in upstate New York.
“We’re not talking to reporters about Kieran. They’ll learn plenty about him in the second book.” Rory instructed his brothers.
“There’s going to be a second book?” Kane asked.
Rory nodded. “Hell yeah, people are clamoring to find out about our family.”
“Uh, I don’t know if that’s a good idea.” Jimmy looked nervous. “What with dad’s ties to the mafia and all of your lack of respect for the law, do we really want that documented in print?”
Rory rolled his eyes at Jimmy. His little brother was always the cautious one, a New York City police officer who always walked the straight and narrow. The rest of the Kavanagh brothers were a far cry from that.
“Relax, kid. It’s a romance novel. No one’s going to care about a few broken laws here or there,” Rory told him. “It’s about me and Clare.”
Quinn whistled a teasing catcall before turning to his older brother. “I hope it’s mostly about Clare, because no one’s going to want to read about your ugly mug.”
“There isn’t a woman in the world who won’t want to read about me.” Rory wiggled his eyebrows suggestively as his brother’s chuckled. “But you’re right, Clare’s the best thing about me.”
“Just read the first question, asshole,” Kane said before deciding he didn’t want to wait. He grabbed the paper out of Rory’s hands and looked it over. “Question one, is Seamus still part of the infamous Irish mafia once known as the Westies?”
“Pass.” Jimmy grunted, waving his hand. “We can’t answer that one.”
The other brothers nodded in agreement, shooting a secretive grin back and forth between them.
“Fine, next question,” Kane said. “Which brother is the best mixed martial arts fighter? Oh, that’s easy. Obviously, I am.”
Rory nearly choked on the water he was currently sipping. “You wish!”
“You’re old and washed up, I’m young and fresh.” Kane grinned, purposefully pushing his buttons.
“I’m not too old to kick your ass.” Rory growled at his arrogant brother.
“I’ve got to side with Rory on this one,” Quinn weighed in. “Plus Kieran was fighting long before you, too, Kane.”
“None of you dickheads would make it through NYPD’s academy like I did, either,” Jimmy added.
“Fuck this shit.” Kane tossed down the paper as he stood and walked toward the office door. “These questions are stupid. I’m not doing this.”
“Kane, we’ve got a book to promote!” Rory yelled after him.
“Promote this,” Kane shot back as he stuck his middle finger out behind him and left.
Rory sighed before bending down and picking back up the interviewer’s questions. “Maybe I’ll just ask Clare to fill this out.”
“She’d be so much better at it than we would.” Quinn grinned, hopping up and heading out of the office. “Tell her I owe her!”
“Ditto.” Jimmy clapped a hand on Rory’s back before following suit.
Rory shook his head as he found himself alone. It wasn’t that long ago when he’d been just as irresponsible and flippant as they are now, but meeting Clare had changed his priorities in life. He smiled at the thought of heading home early to see Clare under the guise of having to bring her the interviewer’s questions.
Seems his brothers actually might have done him a favor.

My Thoughts
Quinn Kavanagh has always been "smack dab" in the middle of everything.  At least when it comes to his family.
Whether it be something as simple as being the middle child of the Kavanagh household.  Or as his father's right hand and management head for the MMA talent at Legends Training.  Quinn has always had a knack for not being too far from where the action is.

That is...until he isn't.
After the one fateful day, those few unforeseen moments that serve to take him out of the action in a big way.
Changing both his life and the way that he lives it forever.

This fourth offering in the Kavanagh Legends series can easily be characterized as the most heartfelt of the saga.
The reason for this?
The leading man in this tale functions as an integral support for all other people in his life.
Even for his "newly returned" first love gone awry.
One Dr. Keira Finley.
The same Dr. Finely assigned to help him fight his way through the pain and limitations that have plagued him since the motorcycle accident that almost cost him his life.

Leaving readers and characters alike to wonder...
Is the good Dr. strong enough to stay around this time?
Is she truly the balm that Quinn needs to sooth the wounds to both his scarred body and his tattered heart?
Or, will Quinn be left to face the loss of the life that he once knew and the woman that he has never stopped loving...again?

Profound questions aside.
The one thing that sets this book apart from its predecessors in the series?
The fact that Quinn tells his story and lives his life outside if the octagon.
That's right ladies.
This chiseled and toned survivor may have the body of a god.  But he has the heart and the talent of an artist.
A fact that until now he has chosen to keep well hidden from those closest.
But with life altering changes facing him on all fronts; who is to say that a change from the strategy of the "art of war" in the ring.  To creating art for its own sake, isn't what this leading man really needs.

In any case...
If you want a romance where love, laughter, living, and family are always worth fighting for.
Look no further than the Kavanagh Legends.
