Set in the Houston area, this third book is my favorite of the series and full of moments that just stole my breath away. If you like your stories with a mix of paranormal, fantasy and urban fantasy – this is the series for you. And I do suggest that you read them in order: this is one of those long-progressing relationship arcs that needs the input from earlier books to not leave you wondering just why something happened.
In this story, we are dealing with Rogan’s ex-fiance who comes to Nevada to beg for her help in finding her husband. Well, Nevada isn’t one to take anything lightly, and aside from her feelings that Rynda is thinking that Rogan can be a back-up plan. See, we are learning about the families with magic and the pecking order (more magical = more money and power) and there is a plan afoot to destabilize the balance of things. Nevada has to work out if Rynda’s claims are actually as they appear, or if she is working with / for the bad guys, or guy. In addition, we are meeting more of her family and getting more of her history, she and Rogan are strengthening their own connection, and there is still the questions / battle with the evil grandmother Victoria trying to sway Nevada to her side. Oh the potential for multiple stories from this one are high – and the team of Ilona Andrews does a wonderful job of giving us some answers, providing more questions and keeping readers on the edge wondering just what is next.
Fight scenes in this book are amazing in the best sense: the fantasy/magical elements, the staging and the descriptions have readers glued to the page and cheering on the good guys, or those we believe are so. With plenty of moments that interrupt the smooth forward motion for each of the characters, the challenges are unique, the dialogue snappy and there is always something new around the next corner (or page). Concluding with a bang, there are questions yet unanswered, leaving the door open for more, as we have a sense that Rogan and Nevada will continue to face challenges and roadblocks, but have solidly formed as a couple, ready to withstand them all.

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.
