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.

Say It Ain't So....
Possibly someone who has never read/heard the amazing writing that is Ilona Andrews. I think someone who is just getting their feet wet in the Fantasy genre could start here.
I am currently listening to Desire's Prize by M. S. Laurens. This isn't an author I have ever read before but I got in on a sale and am hoping I get pleasantly surprised.
I have to first give the disclaimer that Renee Raudman is my favorite narrator but I have to be honest. Just like another reviewer said, she was not spot on with her performance this time. Her voices were not consistent. There was one time that Nevada sounded like Adam Pierce and I had to rewind cause I found it odd that Adam would be having the conversation. Also, some of the voices drove me crazy. Early on Adam sounded masculine at least, but towards the end he sounded like a whiny 11 year old.
Honestly I was sad and disappointed, especially because I pre-ordered this with keen anticipation. Ilona Andrews is my favorite author and I was expecting so much more. This book is definitely NOT a romance novel. I had a hard time understanding when the romance supposedly started. It just seemed to be all about Rogan's hotness, arrogance and crassness. Nevada appeared to be strong originally but then just let Rogan's looks completely distract her. It just seemed like she was in lust with him and I didn't feel that the affection or relationship was built up well.
This book does not sound original to the author at all. It seems like they tried to step outside of their urban fantasy genre into romance but did not land soundly. This book let me down. But please do not let this one work throw you off of this author. The Kate Daniels series is totally amazing, and I understand that may be a hard thing to beat.
