Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.
Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada's "talent." But there's no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice . . .
White Hot is the second book in the Hidden Legacy series and boy was it a long wait for this book. I really should have re read the first book, because somehow I had forgotten the cliffhanger at the end there. But White Hot picks off pretty quickly after book one. We have our heroine, who decided she wanted more than to just be a sex partner for Connor aka “Mad Rogan”. Nevada Baylor, has some unique gifts including the ability to know whether someone is telling a lie or to find out their secrets but her talents come with a great risk as well. Nevada is close to her family, and has been determined to make her late father’s company be successful. When a man whose wife was murdered comes to her for help, she agrees even though she knows there is a lot of danger involved, but this man full of grief and devastation she just can’t turn out without helping him get justice. But her journey to finding this justice ends up with her in more danger than ever, her family at risk and having to face Mad Rogan once again…
“I’m going to shoot him,” I squeezed through my teeth. “No, that would be murder,” Grandma Frida told me, her voice soothing. “You’ve had a long day. Let’s put your magic away. You know what you need? A nice cup of chamomile tea and a tranquilizer . . .
White Hot was simply breathtaking, it was a sensational book that I didn’t see coming. It was better than book one, if that is even possible since I adored that book as well. Seeing Connor and Nevada interact once again made me realize why I adored this couple in the first place. Their interactions with each other are freakin’ hilarious. The I want to kill you but at the same time I want to kiss you in the rain type of way.
I finally understood why he was called Mad Rogan. It wasn’t because he was insane. It was because he drove you nuts with sheer frustration.
Their relationship is definitely packed with misunderstandings, hot passion and action packed adventure. These two can kick ass together in all the best ways. And you just get a kick out of Nevada’s family. They are always teasing her about him, and trying to get her to marry the man. It is pretty funny if you think about it.
“Did you see how she got all hot under the collar?” Grandma Frida said in a theatrical whisper behind me. “She’s not over him.”
“I can hear you!”
I do like that Nevada’s family is so supportive of her and tease her since she is much too serious. Then we have our sexy dragon, Mad Rogan. I truly love this guy as our hero. He is such a bad good boy in all the best ways of course. He is a alpha male, but he also appreciates Nevada’s talents. And boy seeing them fight together is sexy HOT!! I mean they work so in sync with each other and they make such a good fighting team. And those sweet quiet moments that are rare are so special to see. I love seeing them deal with past hurts and try to find a balance in their new found relationship.
The plot thickens though as the danger increases, and clues start to come in, and the realization of what Nevada and the future of her family and her future with Rogan might entail. I do love this couple writing team, because there are some twists and turns that I never expected in this book here. And the book still left me wondering what is in store for them in book three.
What do you love most about this couple writing team?
