Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

"Don't judge a book by it's cover" - TRUE!!!

I have to start of by saying that I have passed over this book multiple times in the last couple of years because of the cover. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Ilona Andrews is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. If you have listened to at least one of her Kate Daniels books then you know what I am talking about.

This series is delicious and I am a bit sad that she only has this one book out so far!

The story starts off by explaining how the world works. In short, the more magic, the more powerful and wealthy.

The heroine Nevada is a small time private detective, handling small time cases like fraud or cheating spouse situations. It is a family-run business with a mom, grandma, and a couple to teenage kids. It is not a "normal" family..hint, grandma does not knit or bake cookies like a normal grandma. While the business is run by the family, it is owned by a corporation.

Nevada is forced into a bounty-hunter gig that eventually leads her to meeting Rogan. Rogan, is as dangerous as they come. He has some scary powers and is the last person Nevada would want to tangle with. Their first encounter is memorable.... it ends with Nevada getting kidnapped, chained to the floor and her brain almost being crushed. As the story develops, they learn that they need each other. Rogan offer Nevada the possibility of surviving this case and saving her family from complete destruction, while, Rogan needs Nevada for her rare gift, her skills that coming in handy as a partner and also to be the voice of reason.

There is not a dull moment that I can point out. The book is engaging. It has humor, action, suspense and slow burning romance. I love Renee Raudman, so I am biased when it comes to her narration. I think she does a wonderful job in this book and I hope she narrates all three books in this series!

Worth a credit: Yes! Let's just say that had I known this book was going to this good, I would have bought it even if I did not have a credit to use!

Cover aside, this audiobook rocked!

I loved this first glimpse into Ilona Andrews' HIDDEN LEGACY world; the magic was fascinating, the characters were insta-hits, and the plot just didn't quit. Mad Rogan was everything I wanted in a bad boy—a powerful, borderline sociopath with mega sex appeal—and, Nevada was an absolute delight. Renée Raudman's narration was flawless, the family dynamics of the Baylor clan leaped off the pages, and the romantic elements left me anxious to listen to the next installment. 4.5 stars.
