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 . .


I admit I am totally biased. This is the one and only author I auto-buy everything. I have some of their books in 3 formats: print, ebook and audio! They never let me down. Why do I love them so much? Somehow they infuse their world and characters with quirky details, relatable situations and feelings. There are multiple plot lines: the mystery, the action, the ongoing world-building and some romance. But even in a romance book – they don’t really need sex! Because the story is sooooooooo amazing!  Although I appreciate sex and romance.

Not only do they write great books but they are wonderful people, real people. I was lucky enough to meet them at NOLA Storycon in September 2016.

I pre-ordered White Hot awhile back and I think it got cancelled. Now I pre-ordered White Hot and Wildfire in November 2016, as soon as I knew links were available.  To prepare for this eARC, I “re-read” Burn for Me on audio in December 2016 . It was my first experience with Renee Raudman and a pleasure. I think I’ll have to read everything first before audio just because I can read faster and I can’t wait.

White Hot picks up right after Burn for Me and jumps into action immediately. We learn more about Nevada’s family, Rogan and Augustine, Bug, the magical community and meet a few new players. It’s intensely fascinating. And I feel Nevada so much. She has deep compassion and sticks to her principles when it isn’t easy. Nevada and Rogan continue to fight the good fight and have each other’s back. It ends with a breather before the next HUGE battle.

The Hidden Legacy series is a must read trilogy. The final book Wildfire will be available July 2017. I was reading it within minutes of getting the eARC. I have no willpower and no desire to have willpower. Go read and enjoy!


About Ilona Andrews

“Ilona Andrews” is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. 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 Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

They have co-authored two NYT and USAT bestselling series, the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge and working on the next volumes for both.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading.I LOVE books and what they give me.It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way.It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.I'll be doing a feature monthly called Thrifty Thursday,which reviews books (ebooks)that have been available for free.

  1. I am so with you. The Andrews team are the only authors I have on auto-buy for any and all of their work. I actually own several of the books in both eBook and paperback. I like options ^_^ !! I LOVED this one. I was like you. I re-read Burn For Me so I could be read for my e-ARC that came and of course I was lucky enough to get the third book in e-ARC, so I jumped into that one after White Hot. Fabulous review and an Amazing author team that should be picked up and read.

    • angela – there is no one like them! I have some of their works in 3 formats! I am eyeing the audios for this series with desire. lol I keep rereading parts of Wildfire now – it is the ultimate WOW. And this just sets it up perfectly.

    • tanya – It is so worth the wait. I did listen to Burn For Me before I read this. Luckily I got Wildfire soon enough to keep it together. They are so so so good I am thinking of rereading all 3 again, soon.
