Présentation de l'éditeur

#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand-new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire . . .

Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile situation. Nevada isn't sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she's kidnapped by Connor "Mad" Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run and wanting to surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan's after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she's getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

Biographie de l'auteur

"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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not really a romance 26 juin 2014
Par Wildwily - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Between the cover art and the title and the quote praising the book you would expect several graphic adult scenes. Calling it Paranormal Romance makes you think the female character is going to be obsessed with shoes or quoting Sex In The City.

Then the following lines come along:

"Is that a tank?"
"Technically that is a gun on tracks. Mobile field artillery. That's a tank in the corner. His name is Romeo."

This is not the paranormal romance you thought you were getting. (Weapons don't play that big a role; I just thought that was a good sample of the humor laced throughout the novel)

Nevada is just a small talent PI who has been supporting her family since the death of her father. The company is mortgaged to a larger firm and she is forced to take a case that will either kill her or she will fail and lose the company and family home and everything they own.

Mad Rogan is capable of knocking down a city and may be a sociopath. He is also a billionaire and a highly trained combat vet.

(Full disclosure: I own and have read everything Ilona Andrews has published, including the serial being posted to their website currently. I am amazed at the depth of their world construction and the sheer ingenuity they bring to each series.)

There are one or two sensual scenes, but not much in the way of the more usual soft-core porn.

Best of all...NO VAMPIRES!!! No werewolves or zombies. This is a bit more towards the superhuman genre than full paranormal. The one instance in which the word demon appears seems more descriptive than a reference to hellspawn.

I can hardly wait to see what they come up with next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing New Series from Favorite Author 30 juin 2014
Par akb--bookworm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
First off, I am a huge Ilona Andrews fan girl. I’ve read just about all they have published. Second, I’ve followed the progress of this book on their website and read the snippets and have been eagerly awaiting this book. I had pre-ordered this book, so I jumped at the chance to get it early.

Nevada Baylor is a small time PI strong-armed into solving a case she normally wouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole. She is tasked with bringing in a fire mage who is accused of killing a cop. In a paranormal world just like ours, magic and family are power. Nevada has family, but is short on the magic. She does have the ability to know if someone is truthful or not. But when she is going up against a fire mage who can melt the skin off her bones, it doesn’t help her much. Her investigation draws the eye of another powerful man, Mad Rogen, who wants the fire mage for his own reasons and joins forces with Nevada.
What I liked:
1. Nevada—Weird name, but awesome girl. It amazes me how unique and different she is than any other heroine Ilona Andrews has written before. She has common sense, is pretty intelligent, is incredibly loyal, and well rounded.
2. The World Building—everything about this world made sense and was easily understood. As a bonus, there was no huge info dump trying to explain it nor was left vague and open with little clues to figure out on my own.
3. Family—Nevada’s family is hilarious, but they also felt so real! Their conversations and actions felt like real life. (You can tell the authors have a house full of teenagers.)
4. Mad Rogen—what a conundrum. I loved trying to figure out Mad. He is incredibly powerful and used to things his way. The fact he can’t seem to crack Nevada has him scratching his head. (For Ilona Fan Girls: he’s almost like Kate and Curran mixed together—yeah, that awesome.)
5. Storyline—the storyline was engaging and very interesting. It was easy to follow and clear. I felt like I was along the ride as Nevada and Mad worked through the investigation and was solving the clues along with them.
6. Realistic Romance—Even though this is being billed as a romance, this wasn’t the typical romance where we hear from the girl and then we hear from the boy and the main point of the story is their romance and everything else is secondary. Nevada and Mad Rogan meeting and actually getting to know each other is secondary to the investigation…and I liked it that way.
7. Development of powers—I loved watching the different powers people had and how they used them. Nevada may think she is small time, but oh! I really don’t think so.

What I didn’t like:
Couldn’t find anything.

Recommendation: Read it!
If you are new to Ilona Andrews, this is a great book to start. The action and mystery are nicely balanced with the romance making it an engaging read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Steamy , action-filled mystery 2 juillet 2014
Par C. Thilmany - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I highly recommend this book if you enjoy the Kate Daniels series. In 1863 scientists discovered a serum that brought forth latent, specific magical abilities in people and it was given to soldiers to give them an edge in fighting their enemies. They hadn't realized at the time that their offspring would also carry these abilities and stopped using the serum. Now, in today's world, families with powerful magic dominate. Other than the magic, this is the world we know with cell phones, laptops and mentions of Facebook and YouTube.

Nevada Baylor runs a family PI firm that is mortgaged to a much larger firm that has left them alone in the past. But when a very powerful fire mage kills someone while using his magic, his influential family wants him brought in before the police find him. She can't refuse, even knowing she's not capable of bringing him in, or her family would lose both the business and their home. Mad Rogan, the head of another rich and powerful house, has another reason for needing to find this guy and Nevada is his best chance of finding him.

This is nothing like the Kate series and yet the reader will find some similarities between characters and actions, and that's one of the many aspects I loved about this story because between the series, the character's philosophies and long term goals are vastly different. There's a mystery, a great deal of action, and steamy sexual tension in small spurts that while important, don't overwhelm the story. Like Kate's series, the humor comes in the form of conversations, sarcastic thoughts and the sexual tension. It's listed as a romance because both are very attracted to the other, but don't expect an HEA at this point. More along the lines of the Kate series, expect a slow build up on the romance.

Unlike Magic Bites which grabbed me from the first couple of pages with its uniqueness, this did take a little more time to get in to as we learn about the different players and situations. But once it takes off, you are in for a ride.

I don't know how many books are contracted for. We are given a preview of the next book. But I can say in all honesty, I'm as anxious to read that next book as I am to get my hands on Kate's next story.

New to the writings of the wife and husband team of Ilona Andrews? There are a lot of great reasons to enjoy this story from the mystery, actions, depth in the characters, world building and a flat out well-written story.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty private eye + sexy sociopath + destructive magic = Really cool new Urban Fantasy series 6 juillet 2014
Par T. Wheaton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I think the blurb that comes with this book doesn't quite get the tone of this book. I was attracted to it solely on the name of the author and only cursorily even read the blurb. Unfortunately, imo, the blurb makes it sound like this is some breathless billionaire romance. With Magic! It isn't. It really isn't.

The book is set in Modern day Houston where history has been slightly altered where people have magical ability. Powerful magic users formed Houses that were headed by the most powerful users in their family known as Primes.

In this setting we are introduced to Nevada Baylor, a young woman who is the primary investigator in the PI firm her family owns and runs. She is given the job to track down the young heir to one of the major Houses and return him to his family before he is killed. He is a powerful prime who can control fire. And he fancies himself some sort of anarchist who doesn't want to knuckle down to the man! Whatever.

But Nevada isn't the only one looking for the destructive young man. Mad Rogan (and he is always called Mad Rogan) is the Prime of another very powerful house and he has a vested interested in the young man too. He inserts himself into Nevada's investigation and causes her no end of consternation. Not only because he is interfering, but also because they are very attracted to each other and she simply does not like him.

When I began reading this book I was curious to know how it would be. I was already very deeply invested in Andrews' Kate Daniels series and also really enjoyed their Edge series as well as a bunch of scf-fi novellas. Those books all felt very distinct from each other so I was excited to see what new world we would get.

This one does not disappoint, although I would say that the tone and setting it is reminiscent of their Edge series.

Nevada is a strong heroine to hang a series on. With the exception of the first chapter and the last one, the book is told from her first person POV. She is funny and resolute. She is compassionate, has a very strong moral center, and her number one priority is that she must be able to look at herself in the mirror at the end of the day. I massively enjoyed Nevada. She wasn't some major kick-ass heroine and there were times when she felt like she was in over her head, but she was a scrapper!

Mad Rogan, though, to me was the more fascinating character. He and Nevada will undoubtedly get together, but not just yet. Nevada and he have chemistry that super leaps off the page. In fact, Mad Rogan all by himself has such a strong magnetic sexuality that it reaches right through the book and grabs you by the hair. But he is not a nice person. He really doesn't care about people like Nevada does. In fact he finds them easily expendable. He has a goal and he will use excessive force up to and including torture to get what he wants. However, he does have his own moral code which saves him from being a complete sociopath. I really liked Mad Rogan. A lot. And I am rooting for those two crazy kids.

This was a really good book. I read it in one sitting and I very much looking forward to the rest of the series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Totally entertaining introduction to a lustful, if not yet loving, couple 2 juillet 2014
Par Mrs. Baumann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Yes, huge fan of Ilona Andrews here. As soon as I saw this title, I jumped on it because I love their work.

This book is different from their other two series that I've read. It's more of a blend between urban fantasy and romance. It has the world-building and magic along with a plucky heroine, but the focus on the relationship between Nevada and Rogan is much tighter. Speaking of said relationship, it's obviously going to play out over two, if not several, books, so if you like that kind of thing, settle in.

I read it all in one sitting, and I wasn't even tempted to skip anything, which sometimes happens. I thought it was a bit of a slow starter though, and the magic is strange. Here are people with amazing skills, basically plopped down in the middle of life as we currently know it. It seems like more should have changed in society, physically and culturally, than is represented here if magic were a true force held in the hands of a few.

It's too soon to tell if this one goes on the keeper shelf. Right now the Nevada/Rogan relationship is all about lust, but for me to buy into it, I'll need to fall in love along with them.
