Excerpt from WHITE HOT
“My wife is dead.” His voice shook with barely controlled emotion. His eyes glistened. “She’s my light. She found me in the darkest time of my life and she saw something in me . . . She believed I could be a better man. I didn’t deserve her or the happiness we had. She loved me, Nevada. She loved me so much, in spite of my faults, and I was the luckiest man alive because when I opened my eyes in the morning, I saw her next to me. She had integrity. She was kind and intelligent, and she tried her hardest to do the right thing so this world would be a better place for our child to grow up in. She didn’t deserve this. She deserved to be happy. She deserved a full and long life. Nobody had the right to rob her of it.”
His face contorted with raw pain and grief. I was trying so hard not to cry. “I love her determination. I love her spirit. I’m proud to have been her husband. And now she’s dead. Someone took this wonderful—this truly beautiful—human being and turned her into a corpse. I saw her on the morgue table. She’s just . . . cold and lifeless as if she never was. Everything is gone except for our daughter and my memories. I have to strive to be the man she thought I was. When my daughter grows up, she’ll ask me why her mother was murdered and I’ll have to answer her. I have to account for my actions. I want to tell her that I found those responsible and I made sure they wouldn’t hurt anyone else.”
He brushed moisture from his eyes with a furious swipe of his hand. “Nobody else will do this. Her family doesn’t have the means, my family doesn’t care, and her employer might have murdered her. There is only me. Will you help me? Please.”
He fell silent. He was sitting here asking for my help and I couldn’t throw him out of my office. I just couldn’t. I remembered when Mom sold our house to pay for Dad’s bills. I remembered when we mortgaged the business and kept it from him, because it would’ve killed him faster than any disease. If someone I loved was murdered, I would do the same thing Cornelius did. He had nowhere to turn. If I slammed the door in his face now, I wouldn’t be able to look my reflection in the eye.
Jen’s Review of WHITE HOT
White Hot is a fantastic continuation of the Hidden Legacy series. Nevada has a new set of problems to deal with, one of which is her attraction to Mad Rogan against her better judgment. She has to investigate a murder this time, and is assisted again by her mother, grandmother, sisters, and cousins. Things get more complicated and dangerous for Nevada. Everything ties into the first book perfectly.
If you didn’t read Burn for Me, you can start the series here. Ilona Andrews provides enough information and backstory for anyone to read the book. However, I recommend that you start the series at the beginning. The first book was awesome, so you shouldn’t miss out on it if you haven’t read it yet.
White Hot is a lot of fun to read. It held my attention from cover to cover. The world, characters, and settings were all richly developed.
I loved this book! It’s definitely a five-star novel in my opinion.
Note: I apologize my review isn’t as in-depth as usual. I had to work late and ran out of time to get everything done, and I have to be up early tomorrow for work. As soon as I have time, I plan to come back to this review to improve it.
In the meantime, my advice is: read White Hot!
Thank you to Tasty Book Tours, Avon, and Ilona Andrews for the opportunity to read White Hot.
