Burn For Me (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews: Giveaway + Review

 



Burn For Me (Hidden Legacy #1)
by Ilona Andrews


ebook, 400 pages
Published October 28th 2014 by Avon

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.




“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.) They have co-authored two New York Times and USA Today bestselling series, the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and the romantic urban fantasy of The Edge and are working on the next volumes for both.

They live in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

5 out of 5 stars
So I admit…this is my first Ilona Andrews book. Don't judge. Some things I didn't realize going into this: 1) The author is actually a husband/wife team. How awesome is that? I'm trying to picture my husband and myself sitting down to write a book together and….well, let's just say it's not going to happen. 2) I need to get busy reading the rest of Ilona Andrews' books!

Burn for Me is the first book in the Hidden Legacy series, and in my opinion, it is a great start to what appears to be a very promising series. Andrews' characters are very likable or relatable, which is a must in my mind. For me, it's the characters that make the book. Nevada is a fantastic female lead. She doesn't take crap from anyone, can take care of herself, and is loyal to her friends and family. And Rogan…*swoon*. That's all there is to say about him. I love their back and forth exchanges, and the chemistry between the two is off the chart.

In addition to the wonderful characterization, the world building in this story was excellent. Andrews created a unique, detail oriented world for her characters. The magic element is interesting, the way it developed and was cultivated over time until present day.

Overall, this is an engaging story full of magic, mystery, romance, and fun banter that you won't want to miss. I am looking forward to reading more about these characters and from this author.
