*moments silence*

I needed that, a moment to calm down, take a deep breath and stop squealing about finally getting my hands on White Hot after 2 years. That’s right guys 2 years. When Burn For Me was first released in 2014 I was in love. It was another Ilona Andrews series I could get all hot (pun intended) and bothered about. Making me wait for so long for the next one counts as cruel and unusual punishment.

But was this punishment worth it? Hell. Yeah. I couldn’t put it down, I made myself a little nest and didn’t move until the final page was read. The Andrews team hooks with their characters, then reel you in with the story they are telling you. It isn’t just the main characters that get you, the feisty Nevada, from whose perspective you are reading the book from, is brave and intelligent, and Mad Rogan is all sexiness wrapped with a bite of ruthlessness and brutality. And yet, I want to know all about Nevada’s eccentric but loveable family, about her morally ambiguous boss Augustine and one of Rogan’s newest recruits, Bug. Within the space of one book Andrews has created a whole family that I am eager to get back to.

Andrews has also created a new world set basically in present day, with one massive difference; magic. The familiar and the new all blend together to create an intriguing new Houston where all the power dynamics have shifted. Amidst this we have Nevada, Rogan and bucketful of mystery. This blends to create an exciting story, full of danger, magic, humour all with a dash of romance.

I loved it. Admittedly…there are massive parallels between this series and the Kate Daniels series, so perhaps this isn’t an entirely original idea. However, it is a well written urban fantasy with a solid story and characters that I love. At different points it had me on the edge of me seat, squirming on my seat, and jumping up on my seat…my seat took quite the bashing.

I can’t wait for the next and final book in the Hidden Legacy trilogy to come out, thankfully I won’t have to wait 2 years this time.

About Ilona Andrews

Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. author2sm“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.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Oregon with their two children, three dogs and a cat. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I agree with Darynda too! I can’t wait to start this but have an inner battle as to whether I am going to reread Burn For Me so I won’t be lost. I don’t know if I want to take the time so I hope that my mind gets a refresher after these 2 long years!
