#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire…
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.
I just want to gush about Burn for Me to everyone! Darkly seductive and magical experience to read, I haven't felt so fangirl excited about a new urban fantasy series in ages. I'm always impressed by how well detailed and developed the world-building is in Ilona Andrews' novels, and Burn for Me is no exception. I was thrilled to learn about the world of the Hidden Legacy series, one in which powerful family dynasties called Houses control cities and hereditary magic means everything.
Nevada is intelligent, tough, and level-headed—she's my kind of heroine. As a private investigator, she's found herself in dangerous situations in the past, but it's nothing compared to her latest case. Nevada has always carefully selected cases that were within her capabilities and wouldn't require too many unnecessary risks, but her hands are tied this time. To protect her family and their Baylor Investigative Agency, Nevada is forced to search for a notorious pyrokinetic Prime named Adam Pierce.
Even though Nevada knows she's expected to fail, she won't back down without a fight. It also helps that Nevada has a secret ability of her own: she can tell when people are lying. Connor "Mad" Rogan is a reclusive billionaire with terrifying telekinetic powers. His name is whispered in fear and awe; no one would ever dare to cross him unless they had a death wish. Mad Rogan has his own reasons for finding Adam Pierce, and Nevada reluctantly agrees to work together with him.
Mad Rogan is a dangerous temptation that Nevada is determined to resist. Their sarcastic banter (my favourite kind!) may carry a flirtatious undertone, but Nevada is also smart to be wary of his intentions and to guard her heart. After all, Mad Rogan is an insanely wealthy Prime and she's barely managing to keep her family's business afloat. You just know that when the moment comes for the seduction to inevitably erupt into a full out inferno, it will be so worth it in the end.
I loved loved LOVED Ilona Andrews' Burn for Me! Everything about the novel felt so fresh, exciting, and unique. When I finished reading Burn for Me, I immediately flipped back to the first page so I could re-read the book all over again. I don't know how I'll possibly be able to wait for the next book in the Hidden Legacy series!
