White Hot by Ilona Andrews

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 …

5 amazeballs stars for me!

I went straight from book one to book two because I just couldn't get enough! So thrilled to have a new series by duo Ilona Andrews! I think White Hot was even better than Burn for Me. Specifically, since we didn't have to say MAD Rogan every single time Conner was in the scene. I love the chemistry between Rogan and Nevada, and Andrews drew out the seduction well – not too long, but long enough to make us want it really, really badly. I found the magic users super interesting. Their individual powers quite intriguing and the animal mage was awesome! This world is completely addictive and I'm along for the wild ride!! Absolutely awesome book! I'm onto Wildfire... like... um… Wildfire!

*sigh* I did not want this book to end. I absolutely could not put it down. I absolutely loved everything about this story from start to finish, every character, every conversation... just... everything. I love Rogan and Nevada and their crazy relationship. I love how they work together and snark at each other. It's just... great.

Then there are all the secondary characters that are just as amusing and really add to the story. The plot was juicy and kept me guessing the whole way. The sexual tension between Rogan and Nevada only added to everything.

I can't wait for the next part of this story. I don't know what I'll do when Rogan and Nevada's story is finished. I'm afraid to pick up any other book right now because I'm still so stuck in their world. They have rapidly become my absolute favorite urban fantasy couple by far, which is saying a lot since I usually love me some super sexy scenes and there is not an abundance in these books, but the chemistry between the characters makes up for it in spades.

I enjoyed Burn for Me so much that I immediately had to start reading Ilona Andrew's other series, Kate Daniels, which I totally recommend. This author duo has me totally fangirling over these books! I am absolutely loving the Hidden Legacy series and the interesting world of Primes. White Hot will keep you reading through the night and ready to delve into Nevada and Rogan's next adventure. I can't wait to read book #3, Wildfire, and see what is in store for the Baylor family. I love the way Andrews has built up the chemistry between these two and it's always just so HOT! Although, as much as I'm totally obsessed with Hidden Legacy, I also feel like I'm still waiting for some of these random loose ends to be tied up from Burn for Me, but we still have Wildfire to look forward to!

I find this whole world of Primes to be so interesting and I kinda wish there was a prequel to read to learn more about it or that we got more information because I feel like I still have so many questions. Regardless, I'm still loving this story and all the incredible characters! Andrews' fans will not be disappointed and will easily devour this next installment! Five stars for White Hot!

I love this series! Where the first book introduced us to Nevada and her magical, dystopian Houston, this second book delves deep into wonderfully layered characters and an increasingly exciting story while slowly building the romantic tension between Nevada and Connor (Mad Rogan).

I love the complex world building in this book. The House politics and parallel lives led by privileged Houses and the less privileged citizens who manage with magic makes for fascinating and timely social commentary. The politics in Nevada’s Houston are complicated and nuanced. The conspiracies unravel slowly against an action-packed storyline full of suspense. Nevada is a kick ass heroine. She uses her brains before she uses a weapon, but she is a formidable force. This is brilliant Urban Fantasy writing.

I love the layers of this story. Beneath the world changing plots and scheming, this is also the story of Nevada’s struggle to keep her family safe and to remain independent from those who would control her. We see much more of Nevada’s wonderfully eclectic family and we learn more family secrets.

The first book wasn’t a conventional romance, but in this second book, the sexual tension between Connor and Nevada is intense. This isn’t a sexually explicit read – it is more of a conventional courtship between two very unconventional characters. I love Nevada’s fierce independence and her careful pragmatism almost as much as I love Connor’s grand gestures and unflinching devotion.

I know I’m gushing but it isn’t often I fall as hard for a series as I have for this one. I love these books and I love these characters. I can’t recommend this series highly enough!

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.
