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.

“I don’t negotiate with terrorists.”

Wildfire is another amazing addition to the Hidden Legacy series. The unique magic system continues to enchant, the world-building is very well-developed, the characters are still funny as all hell and interesting, and the romance makes your heart flutter. With a new mystery to solve, this adventure is as engrossing as the previous ones, and leaves readers wanting more.

Ilona Andrews still awes and inspires. This novel is packed with action, steamy scenes, and confrontations. The fast pace keeps you flipping pages, and the struggles and revelations the characters are faced with are impactful and well-written. The book delivers such an engrossing and fun story that, when it ends, it leaves you wanting more!

Wildfire picks up right where Whtie Hot lefts off. The atmosphere is tense, which translates very well in the writing. There is a lot more at stake in this installment, and the reader definitely feels as Nevada fights and faces every obstacle that comes her way.

Nevada continues to be an amazing narrator. Her inner monologue is equal parts witty and dry, and her character development stays strong throughout the story. She’s changed a lot since the first book, but her values still hold. Her relationship with her family is still one of my absolute favorite parts in the series, and that continues to be true in this novel.

The romance between Nevada and Rogan has been the kind of slow burn that is so good it hurts? Well, this time they’re finally where I want them to be, haha! The progress of their relationship is very well developed and feels real and believable. The way they communicate is also another plus, as they make an effort to not keep things from each other. The steamy scenes are only the cherry on top.

There is the introduction of another major player in this book, as well as some minor characters that come back to the spotlight. They bring conflict with them, for sure, which only makes the story even more interesting. I do have to say that Cornelius continues to be a personal favorite, and his role in this installment is a highlight for me.

I do have to say that the ending feels a little bit rushed. I don’t know if part of it is because there are no announcements for more books in the series? But it definitely feels like it could have been more fleshed out.

Overall, Wildfire is an amazing Urban Fantasy read and another great book in the HL series. It’s funny, tense, and engaging, and it has the right amount of sweet romance scenes to balance it all out. I’m really hoping we get more books after this one, as I can’t wait to see what happens! Definitely recommend it to all Ilona Andrews and UBF fans.
