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 . .

read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short

The same reasons that made Burn for Me great (Ilona Andrews wrote it, Great Characters and Renée Raudman narrated it) are true for White Hot.

White Hot picks up a couple of months after Burn for Me. The larger plot thread continues and as all Andrews’ series, the characters and plot become more complex. While the danger for now is wrapped up by the end of the novel the overall series danger is still there waiting for Nevada and Rogan. The budding romance between the hero and heroine grows as well.

If you have not tried an Ilona Andrews novel I would recommend the Hidden Legacy series (well all of them really but this one only has 3 books and the final one is releasing later this month) for a highly entertaining binge read/listen.

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 coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I loved this one in both ebook and audiobook. I’ve already consumed book 3 in ebook, but waiting to listen once the book comes out in audio. Ilona Andrews and Renee Raudman make an amazing team!

  2. I get on and off the Ilona Andrews train frequently for some reason. I get into a book or two enjoy it, but then I stop… I think it’s a mood thing. I recently listened to Clean Sweep and yeah, Renée Raudman is fairly awesome. I plan to finish that series soon and then maybe I’ll try this one, since it’s also short. I like short these days!

  3. I can’t wait to get to this one on my TBR! I didn’t listen to Burn For Me, so I’m kind of on the fence on if I’m going to listen or read again. It’s been a long time since Burn For Me, so it may not make a difference. I’m so glad to see such great ratings! I’m so excited to read this!
