Book Review: White Hot by Ilona Andrews

White Hot
Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: Hidden Legacy (Book 2)
Publication: May 30, 2017

Description: 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 …

My Thoughts: The second Hidden Legacy novel was as compelling and the first and has left me aching for the third.

Nevada Baylor takes the case of Cornelius Harrison who wants to find out who caused the death of his wife. Normally the magical community in Houston has its own ways of dealing with this sort of problem. But the House Nari Harrison worked for is covering and threatens to blacken her reputation if Cornelius doesn't drop his inquiries.

Normally a case that would pit Nevada's small family run private investigation business would be too much for her to handle. But she takes the case because someone needs to stand up for Nari. Her investigation brings her back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan is one of the fiercest and scariest Primes in Houston and who is an object of romantic interest to Nevada even though she knows a romance with him would be a bad, bad idea.

The investigation quickly leads deep into House business and House goals and gets Nevada, Rogan, and others into the middle of a very twisty mess. It doesn't help that Nevada is hiding a Prime level talent of her own that makes her someone any House would want to control.

This twisty plot combines a romance that is hot enough to scorch the pages, a conspiracy with ruthless villains, and an evil grandmother with plans of her own for Nevada and her family. I loved the fast paced action, the romance, and the love and loyalty shown by Nevada and her family.

Favorite Quote:
"Maybe this isn't such a good idea. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep knowing that you're prowling in my house while I'm in my loft."

He rose, his face serious and harsh. "You will. You'll fall asleep fast and sleep soundly until morning, and then you'll get up and have breakfast with your family because I'll be prowling in your house tonight. And if anyone tries to interrupt your sleep and end your life, you have my word that they'll sleep forever."

That was the most romantic thing anyone had ever said to me. He meant it and would make every word of it come true.
