Title: Burn for Me
Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: Hidden Legacy
Publication Date: October 28th, 2014
Synopsis: 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.
Review: The first series I read by this couple was of course the Kate Daniels one and since I am caught up on it and the next book is not out for a while I decided to read their other series. I loved this book. The idea that magic came from medical testing and was strengthened through breeding, mimicked after the ways Royals used to breed, was really intriguing to me.
I really loved Nevada, her power/magic is interesting and it will be more interesting to see if she learns more to do with it in the future. Connor is called Mad Rogen throughout the whole of the book and even knowing things he has done and that he is kind of a psychopath I had a hard time thinking of him like that. And after what we learn at the end I am going to have an even harder time thinking of him like that. But at the same time it’s hard to remember his name is Connor because very few people use it and when they do he corrects them to Mad Rogen, he wants people to think of him that way, it’s the face he shows people. I’m onto you Rogen, you can’t fool me.
I really need White Hot, the end of October is a long way away. Though I will have Magic Shifts to read in the mean time. If you haven’t read anything by these authors you definitely should, I recommend starting with the Kate Daniels series, there are 7 books out in that series with book 8 out in August, and there is more to tide you over.
I received an ARC of this book from the author. This in no way affected my review.
