Series: Hidden Legacy #3
Author: Ilona Andrews
Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…
Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.
As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.-Goodreads
Review: If you know me, you know I love the writing team of Ilona Andrews. I am always excited to read their books and I hope readers can look past the cheesy covers of this particular series and give it a try. It's a ton of fun. It's a perfect mix of urban fantasy, romance and mystery. I wasn't sure anyone could top Kate Daniels for me, but Nevada is giving her a run for her money.
I thought the central plot in this book (Rogan's ex-fiance's husband has been kidnapped) was a more interesting storyline than the previous book. Cornelius is a good addition to Nevada's team and I love her sisters and cousins. I was worried about the Nevada/Rogan dynamic since they were 'together' the entire book but their relationship was handled well (i.e. I wasn't bored with them as a couple). My only complaint about this book was...where was Augustine?? He's one of my favorite side characters, I hope he has a role in the next installment.
Overall, loved it!
