About the Author
"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.

Burn for Me is a whirlwind in more ways than one. A mystery, a dangerous quest, a burgeoning romance between two rock-headed alphas, neither of whom want to give up the wheel. Nevada - smart mouthed, stubborn and loyal to the ground. Mad Rogan dark - powerful and wickedly dangerous. He can literally move mountains. They will be rubble when he's done but that's beside the point. Together they do their damnedest to prevent a cataclysm, while testing each others mettle and bumping heads.
It would take me all day to explain why I love this book and in the end the words would basically boil down to this. The writing is superb. The characters are fabulous and the story is amazing.
It's been torture waiting for White Hot to drop.
The authors' protagonist is not a powerful mage, but has a magical gift she keeps secret-- she can tell when someone is lying. Not like a lie detector, but infallibly, every time. If her gift were known, she would probably be pressured into the military as an interrogator, so she hidden it all her life. It is, however, tremendously useful in her job as a private investigator.
The writing is crisp (and the copyediting professional, thank heavens), and the protagonist is a particularly strong female character and not just a snarky cardboard cliche, as is too often the case in paranormal novels.
There was one flaw that, as a former paramedic, I can't leave unmentioned. You should never start CPR on someone with a pulse-- chest compressions can throw the heart into ventricular fibrillation and kill the patient. [I know-- I can't expect the authors to know everything about everything!]
In any case, an excellent start to a new series.
The author's greatest strengths are world building and characterization. Their ability to create a story arc over several books is first class. The world building is in this book is good but the characterizations are mediocre and the plot is improbable and confusing. They did not sell me on the budding romance between the two main characters. The attempt to create a set up for the next book in the series is clunky and confusing.
I will say on a most positive note that Ilona Andrews are wordsmiths of the first degree. You will not find any better. I often use their work as textbooks in learning the craft of writing. For that alone it is worth the reading it on your kindle and making notes of memorable quotes. You will have many of those.
I recommend this book to die hard Ilona Andrews fans and to these interested in a primer on paranormal romance.
