Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.
Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.
Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.
BURN FOR ME by Ilona Andrews is another riveting read by my all time favorite writing duo and the first novel in the Hidden Legacy series. Like her Kate Daniels series, BURN FOR ME sucked me in from page one. If I hadn’t the smallest amount of control (and more money to burn), I would have been up all night binge-reading the other books in the series.
Nevada Baylor is stuck between a rock and a hard place. She must successfully apprehend a dangerous fugitive or lose everything. To make matters worse, she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan, a man with the power to destroy entire cities, who demands her help. She wants nothing to do with the Scourge of Mexico, but he may be the only chance she has of getting out alive.
Navada is not only a kick-ass heroine, she’s a smart kick-ass heroine. She doesn’t have a death wish as many heroines of the genre appear to. She does her job well, but has no qualms with stepping aside to let someone else more experienced and adept handle a situation that is too much for her. There’s nothing more frustrating to me than a character that repeatedly bungle plans/situations by being reckless and rash.
Ronan, quite frankly, the most adorable potential psychopath I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about. He is devastatingly powerful and has no objection to killing tp benefit his cause, but there is just something about his confusion about simple human emotions that is so cute when he’s trying to woo our unwilling heroine.
Ilona Andrews has once again hooked her claws in me and I couldn’t be happier. She serves us kick ass characters, a brilliantly crafted world, and writing that continues to enslave me. BURN FOR ME has become another favorite from Andrews, and I cannot wait to devour the rest of this series!
About the Author
Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)
Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Oregon with their two children, three dogs and a cat.
