The Hidden Legacy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm…and their relationship burns hot
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…
Andrews sets fully realized characters, killer action scenes, and a hot and sweet romance against a dynastic world of mages. It's been two months since the explosive concluding events of Burn for Me devastated Nevada Baylor, a Houston PI and psychic truthseeker (able to tell when people are lying). She hasn't heard from mage Connor Rogan since then, which is just as well, because she's fighting strong feelings for him that go against every one of her instincts. When Cornelius Harrison, an animal mage, asks for her help after his wife is murdered, she takes the case, but her investigation leads her back into Connor's orbit and the stakes become even higher. Nevada's eclectic family is a delight: Mom is a sniper, Grandma specializes in armored vehicles, and her teen sisters and cousins aren't to be trifled with either. Nevada herself is a deeply compassionate person who discovers that Connor isn't as cold and calculating as she first thought especially when it comes to romancing her. Andrews does a fantastic job of catching up new readers while enchanting existing fans.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are well-written and I find myself wanting to know what will happen to them. I read this book over a couple of days - I couldn’t put it down!
This second book in the series delivered with great action between the tension of the love interests. Looking forward to the third
