Burn For Me introduced me to another wonderful world created by this team of authors. I loved this alternate earth story that takes a different path when magic becomes the currency of power and status in the world. A small-time private investigator with a secret magic and her family, an infamous and powerful head of his magical House, and a handful of others are taking on a dangerous, insidious shadow enemy and I was glad to pick up White Hot and get right back in this action-packed, intense world.
White Hot is book two of the Hidden Legacy series and follows closely the events from Burn for Me so does not work out of order.
After the events of the first book, a little time has passed in which Nevada, the tough yet vulnerable heroine has regrets and anger at Rogan for taking her ‘no’ as final. She would deny under pain of death that she cares. Meanwhile, she works some cases and works at the magic she now knows is so much more than just a human lie detector.
Soon, quiet time is over and she’s embroiled in what she thinks of as a new, dangerous case for a man seeking answers about his wife’s murder. But nope, she reluctantly finds herself working with Connor Rogan again because the murder is related to his work nosing out the conspiracy group behind their first adventure together and this group is behind the murder.
I was thrilled to see this pair back in action together. Nevada is hanging on hard to denial and still believes the worst in Rogan while he is true to himself while patiently trying to wear down her defenses against him. He proves true blue and she now has to figure out if she can accept him for who he is when he sees the monster inside her and accepts her unquestionably. I thought that was really the big turning point. That twist that revealed so much about her and then the further twists that explain her family’s great magic.
And, on top of the personal story and the sizzling romance development, of course there is a fantastic action suspense case that requires everyone’s wit and strength to engage an enemy that seems to hold most of the cards. So many riveting scenes in this book that I lost count and just flew through the pages. The way these authors build their storyline and series plot is impressive. So many elements and threads and they weave it all together into one fantastic tapestry of a story and series. I can’t wait to pick up the next book and see where things go next.
I would definitely recommend this book/series to Urban Fantasy lovers, but hey, why stop there. Pick up anything by this author pair and you won’t be disappointed.
