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.

At A Glance

So much love.

The Good

I keep hearing this series is actually a trilogy and this is the last book. No effing way. This has to be a series and there has to be more books. Period. I am writing this review under the impression there will be more books to come.

Wildfire picks up close to where White Hot left off. Rynda Sherwood is asking for Nevada’s help in investigating her husband’s kidnapping. It’s super awkward since Rynda is Rogan’s ex, but it’s more awkward since Nevada was involved in Rynda’s mother’s death. Yeeeaaah, sooo. There’s that. While dealing with that, Nevada and her family have to go through the trials of proving their magic to become Primes and to become a House. All this trouble just to stop Nevada’s grandmother from getting her dirty, evil claws into them.

The Andrews did an amazing job of letting these characters grow in every possible way. Nevada really shines as the matriarch of her family. She makes decisive decisions even when they seem harsh. She is living in the crazy world of Houses and Primes now, she has to think like them to beat them. Rogan has turned into one big softie….lol, yeah right! He’s still as brooding and cold as ever, but not to our Nevada. He is positively dreamy when it comes to how he treats Nevada. I fall in love with him each time he looks at her like she is the only woman. Nevada is really good for Rogan, that’s for sure. She reins him in as she lets him flourish and be himself. A perfect balance.

The main plot was action packed. The kidnapping story was super intriguing and complicated in all it’s conspiracies and betrayals. I love how everyone in Nevada’s life came together to solve this one. I was excited to learn more about Nevada’s sisters’ and cousins’ abilities and their family history. OMG, this family will be a crazy force to be reckoned with.

There is a lot more of this story to be revealed. We get some resolutions, but I can’t wait to see where the Andrews takes this series.

The Bad

This would have been 5 stars but the ending was so rushed it brought the enjoyment of the book down for me a little. The final battle was a few pages and it just didn’t have the excitement I was hoping for. Plus, I wanted the trials to be more of a big deal but it was glossed over for some of the characters. Missed opportunity there, but still an amazing book.

The Snuggly

We get some sexy time. I love how passionate Rogan and Nevada are together. They light the pages on fire!

Final Thoughts

There better be more books because I am already dying for more! The Hidden Legacy series is so close to being just as amazing as the Kate Daniels series. Read it now!


“I had been hugged by a giant, superintelligent, pacifist bear. I could do this. I could do anything.”  

“I’m starving. I haven’t had anything to eat since I stole a bear claw from your kitchen this morning.”
“You didn’t steal it. All my bear claws are yours.”  

“You’re everything to me,” he said into my ear.
I wanted to tell him that he was everything to me, that I wouldn’t let the darkness have him, that he never had to worry that I would give up and walk away. But the echoes of our shared pleasure stole the words, and so I said it the best I could.
“I love you.”

    they said they’ll do more for Avon is the sales are good and if not they’ll self publish so I really hope we will have more

    I love this series and I’m so excited they want to write more, hopefully it won’t take years again before we see another book.

  3. Melissa (Books and Things)

    I WILL get to this one after I finish the Kate Daniels books (I’m procrastinating b/c I hate to see it end). However, I’m thrilled that this was so good and I have something to really devour (or procrastinate… LOL).

  4. Christy LoveOfBooks

    Yeah, what Mellanie said. The Andrews’ said they do more even if they have to self-publish. Ahhh … I was so sad when Caesar was revealed. I had an inkling it was that person, but really hoped it wouldn’t be. 🙁

  5. Olivia Roach

    Oh no, I can’t stand it when they say a series I love is over DD: I am totally with you in not accepting this is the ending just for your sake!
