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.

The first time I read BURN FOR ME, I had concerns about literally Mad Rogan. I mean, yeah, he was effing hot, but when Nevada had to explain to him, over and over again, why he shouldn't (b/c yes, brat, we all know you can) kill people just b/c they annoy you . . . I repeat, I was concerned.

In WHITE HOT those concerns were answered, and HOO BOY, if I'd thought he was hot before . . . *chants* Tactile, tactile, tactile . . .

Maybe a gazillion ★★★★★ would be enough.... but probably not!!



Let's talk expectations. .. As all of us devoted readers know expectations can be the worst kind of plague. They make you excited and often a little bit manic and most of the time they lead to you wanting very specific things. Obviously the authors not being a mind readers can't deliver exactly what your overzealous imagination has come up with for their characters. And even if they could read minds, yours is probably not the only ove

Better than the first. I'm here for the witty banter. Not so much for Rogan and his alpha douchiness. I'm also super over the hating on women not related to this female lead.

Oh boy. Where do I start?

This is the type of series that draws you in from the get-go, grips you the whole way, then spits you out all chewed up, wanting to claw your hair out while you wait for the next installment.

If you look at the GR page for White Hot, it's a slew of five-star reviews from obsessed readers who have considered selling their souls to Ilona Andrews in exchange for book 3.

So what makes Hidden Legacy so addictive? I'll give my 3 biggest reasons real quick.

Review:



Honestly, I expected this to be good, but not *this good.* Burn for Me was great, but this takes things to a whole other level. I'm putting it up there with the best of the Kate Daniels books (#3, #6, and #9 for me personally).

This picks up a few months after the first one ended. Rogan has disappeared from Nevada's life and she thinks he has moved on. Silly woman. Of course, their paths cross again when they get mixed up in the s

All I do know was it took me a couple of weeks to finish it.
But don't get me wrong, it's not bad!
I like the characters well enough, I like the plot, and I like the world they live in, so I'm not sure what the problem was.

4.5 stars. On sale today, May 30, 2017! Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature:

Note: this review contains some spoilers for the first book in this series, Burn for Me.

In White Hot (2017), the second book in Ilona Andrews’ HIDDEN LEGACY urban fantasy series, we return to a magical version of Houston, Texas, where some people (typically the rich and powerful) have inheritable magical powers. Nevada Baylor is from a not-particularly wealthy family that runs a private investigation firm,

Confession time: I'm a TOTAL Ilona Andrews nerd/super-fan!!



When I met the writing duo at RT this year and got a SIGNED PAPERBACK (meep!!), I just about died. I was saving the book for a special time because I LOVED Burn for Me with a passion and I knew White Hot would be a winner. So when I sort of hit a reading slump this week, I picked up that glorious paperback and got to work.

AND I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.





I stayed up until 3:48 am finishing it! This is not a drill!

Putting my intense hate aside for just a moment, I do need to clarify that I loved the actual text of this book. I've gotten through all of the Kate Daniels series and the Innkeeper stuff, but I really ought to spell this out... I think I am in love with this series and it's even better than the others.

Sheesh. It's really a case of misleading expectations thanks to that damn cover. I mean, technically, it has a strong romance plot through it, but for the most p

Oh, book, how I love you! Let me count the ways:

♥ Ilona Andrews can do no wrong. No, I don't know them. No, I don't have any stake in their writing career. I'm just a simple fan-girl sitting in front of a computer asking them to keep writing.

IA:


♥ The main characters, Nevada and Rogan, are awesome. Their chemistry is amazing.

Maybe I should roll down the window to let some of the sexual tension out. We needed a distraction, or I’d end up pulling over and we’d end up in the back seat, doing . . .

The sequel is just as racy, exciting, sexy and endearing as the first novel. We get to learn more about Rogan's past, House politics and Nevada's family. Also the conspiracy we uncovered in the first volume gets even more dangerous. On to the 3rd and last in the series.

Yaaaa. Çok güzeldi yine ama bir şeyler eksikti bu kitapta. Yine de çok severek okudum. Nevada ve Mad Rogan <3
Bu kitapta bir sürü şey açığa çıkıyor. Sırlar açısından aydınlatıcı. Kitabın sonundaki bir sahne bana Jeaniene'nin Night Prince serisinin son kitabındaki bir sahneyi hatırlattı. Beklediğime değmiş.

Bu arada seri üçüncü kitapta bitiyormuş?!??!???!!??

If anyone had told me a few years ago, before I really discovered urban fantasy as a genre, that I could LOVE a book with a cover like the ones you find on this book and in fact the whole series, I would have laughed in your face. Judging books by their covers? Yep. Well please don't let the covers on this series put you off. These books are amazing!

The Hidden Legacy series is quickly shaping up to be one of my all time favorites. No surprise there, because in my opinion the husband and wife writing team that make up Ilona Andrews are so very talented! Thrilling plots, laugh-out-loud humor and romances that ooze sexual tension are the hallmarks of every one of their books! I can’t recommend their writing enough!

This cover is even worse than that of the first book, that looks nothing like Mad Rogan, that pose is just WTF! Can't decide whether this is better the first book, there was more action,romance and revelations but I kind of miss the whole mystery of book one. I don't know why but I always find it hard to review urban fantasy, you should read my review for the Raven boys, it was horrendous. I know that I've improve so I'll defintely do a better job here. The ship finally sailed here.

I spent about 15 hours driving over the last couple weeks and I listened to this book. The narrator is fantastic - she also does Ilona Andrews' The Edge series as well (not sure about Kate Daniels). This is a great follow up to the previous book, but there were a couple times when I wanted to yell at Nevada for being a bit too stubborn - one of the things I dislike about most urban fantasy are the chip-on-the-shoulder protagonists, while strong, independent and skilled in self-defense/fighting, ...more

Let's face it, if the team of Ilona Andrews writes it, I'm going to read it. Everything that this husband and wife team has produced has been everything an avid reader, such as myself, would love to find in every book they pick up. WHITE HOT is another perfect example of this amazing storytelling by this duo.

I received this ARC copy of White Hot from Avon in exchanged for a honest and voluntary review. This book is set for publication May 30, 2017.

What a good book! The authors are just so talented - I read everything they write and so far they have never let me down. Just never look at the covers. They are so bad they need a category of their own.
However, back to the book. Nevada and Rogan are very similar to Kate and Curran in the Kate Daniels series but set in a very different world where magic is the norm, Mages belong to Houses and fighting between them happens all the time. Rogan is just wonderful, one of the most powerful , he is de

Nevada Baylor has a rare magic. As a truthseeker she can tell if someone is lying but she can also seek the truth in other ways. She’s always kept her magic a secret, but ever since she was hired to find Adam Pierce it’s become more difficult to keep others from finding
