Synopsis (Goodreads):
Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada’s “talent.” But there’s no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice …
Thoughts on White Hot: Holy smokin' hot intensity, Batman! Nevada and Rogan generate enough sparks to light up a city or three. Even when they're fighting their attraction. Well, wait. Nevada's fighting it. Rogan's going the teeth-bared, overwhelmingly sexy route. Which, naturally, pushes all Nevada's buttons. Both the lusty ones and the frustrated ones.

Those two!

Anywho. There's more to this book than smoldering looks and almost touches. There are PLOTS afoot. Danger and bloodshed and more than a few head shots.We get to see the more human side of Rogan as he works to protect the things that are important to him. One of which is Nevada. The guy can go a little caveman when she's in danger. While he sees it as eliminating her vulnerabilities, she sees it as him trying to cage her. Which, as you might guess, is one of her hot buttons. Not a sexy hot button either.

They fight MAGNIFICENTLY. The make-ups are pretty nice too.

The dangling threads from book 1 are picked up and the picture they're uncovering is getting bigger and more complex by the minute. Someone wants to make some big changes in the way things work and they're willing to run through anyone they have to to do it.

Book 3 is waiting for me RIGHT NOW. Thank goodness. I need another Nevada/Rogan fix.
