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.
Oh my goodness! Rogan and Nevada are both characters I became slightly obsessed with at the beginning of Burn for Me, and now, I just know that I have to figure out what is up next. Ilona Andrews did it again – a complete winner!
There is something special with stories including magic. When those stories are written by Ilona Andrews, there is even more that is special about them! Burn for Me is a prime example of their excellent writing, world building, character development, story arc, plot and general awesomeness. I don’t really know what more to say than that – it was as close to perfection as the written word can possibly be.
Rogan and Nevada are very different, and at the beginning of Burn for Me, I thought Nevada might be slightly weaker than other heroines coined by the Andrews. It didn’t take me very long to realize that was all wrong, though, and that I was participating in the creation of something totally epic.
There is a lot going on in Burn for Me, both when it comes to the relationships between the characters, the suspense and the overall story arc that I’m sure will continue over the future books in The Hidden Legacy series. There is romance, too, even if it’s quite far on the sidelines, but the promise of what it could become is very strong.
If you’re a fan of strong female characters, a solid story, lots of magic and both mystery and suspense, Burn for Me needs to be added to your shelves!
Those who previously married for status, money, and power now married for magic, because strong magic would give them everything.
Men and women passed me, some speaking quietly, some deep in thought. Expensive clothes, beautiful faces, some so flawless that illusion magic had to be involved. There was a point where a human being became too perfect and lost whatever sexual allure they might have been born with. They became untouchable and almost sterile, like plastic mannequins in store windows.
