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.

Romantics, fantasy fans, and process nerds unite, WILDFIRE has something for all of us. Nevada and Connor have to negotiate the transition of their new relationship into a world that is aware of the Baylor family's potential. As with every other book in this series, however, readers are going to finish WILDFIRE wanting more and more of these smart, sexy, hilarious characters.

In addition to Andrews' characteristic magic with relationships in progress, WILDFIRE also clears up many threads left hanging in prior books.  Questions of the other Baylors' abilities are put to rest, even how Nevada and her sisters ended up with such a diverse set of powers in a world where careful genetic tracking would predict against it. Some of the rotten Prime conspiracy is resolved, or at least promises to change the playing field, and seeing Nevada work with her new employees (and her new paramilitary neighbors) is as detailed and satisfying as you'd expect from the Andrews.

Each book in the Hidden Legacy series is worth reading more than once, and WILDFIRE was even better the second time around.  Where a lesser series would pack melodrama between secrets, the Andrews use strategy and rational responses, which age much better. The character dynamics are just as funny and sweet with each read-through, but that's small comfort until we know more Hidden Legacy books are on their way.

Series Titles:
  1. Burn for Me - 5/5
  2. White Hot - 5/5

  • Fans of WILDFIRE should be sure not to miss any of the Andrews' back catalog, there are few (if any) disappointments to be found.  In addition to the beloved Kate Daniels books, ON THE EDGE is a quirky romance that opens up a whole new world.
  • Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series has similar rock-solid world building, but with a stronger romantic focus. ANGELS' BLOOD is the first of the series and a great place to start.
