#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.

    Summary

    In Burn For Me, we have a fiery stunning story where the reader is drawn into a unique world that Ilona Andrews has introduced for us. Our Heroine, Nevada, has been working hard to keep her late father’s business of detective work alive. But her family’s home and business is on the line, when she is ordered that she has to obtain, a dangerous criminal…a cop killer and is very unpredictable and moody. Then she meets Rogan….one of the most lethal of men, rich and has the honor of prestige and power. No one dares crosses him except for Nevada, who fights him on every turn despite the desire that starts to erupt between them.

    Plot and Story Line

    This story does end with a bit of a teaser, I have a feeling this series will be similar to her Kate Daniels series, where we see their relationship deepen as it further goes along. I loved the chemistry between these two. Its very raw and powerful, and we see the tone of the story isn’t about to let you set this one aside until you read the last page. What a page turner, and I was very intrigued to see where this book was leading up to in the beginning. What was even more intriguing was seeing the way these two develop a tenuous relationship. It doesn’t start off easy, but as they work together to bring down a most dangerous enemy, they also uncover a hidden passion.

    Whew what a story this turned out to be and even though I didn’t care for the HFN type of ending, it does lead us to get excited for the second book. What I grew to admire about this story was seeing the way that it evolves and shapes. Definitely a must read for PNR and UF lovers.

    About Illona Andrews

    Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. author2sm“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. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.

    • I’d heard that about the HFN from a few people. It does sound so good though! I enjoy the Kate series and can’t believe I’ve still not started this one even though I have it. Ahh!

    • I am sSOOOO sad this one fell apart for me 🙁

    • I have it on the shelf because it is Ilona Andrews, but didn’t really have a feel for what it was like. Not surprised about the really slow burn romance after the Kate Daniels’ start, but good to know that it’s still developing at the end.

    • I loved this book. I am glad to see that you enjoyed it. I can’t wait for the second book and it has been a long wait since it was pushed back to next year. Great review!

    • I really liked this. It was actually my first Ilona Andrews book and got me inspired to finally start the Kate Daniels series. I listened to it and really recommend the audio. I’m just on pins and needles for the long wait until book 2. Guess I’ll just have to keep making my way through the Kate Daniels books…no hardship there!

    • I loved this book! Ilona Andrews rocks. I can’t wait to read the next one.

    • I keep putting this one off. I so need to read it!!! What does HFN mean? lol
