Publication Date: 8/27/2019
Series: Hidden Legacy #4
Rating: 5 Stars
In a world where magic is the key to power and wealth, Catalina Baylor is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, and the Head of her House. Catalina has always been afraid to use her unique powers, but when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered, Catalina risks her reputation and safety to unravel the mystery.
But behind the scenes powerful forces are at work, and one of them is Alessandro Sagredo, the Italian Prime who was once Catalina’s teenage crush. Dangerous and unpredictable, Alessandro’s true motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to a flame.
To help her friend, Catalina must test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her House–and her heart.
There is absolutely nothing about this book that I didn’t like. As one of my coveted “me time” vacation reads, I dived in before we even crossed into the state lines of our destination, and as done before vacation really even started. I couldn’t stop. Not even to hit the bathroom at the rest stop. This book was ready to be devoured from page one.
This book is fantastic. Reminiscent of the first three novels in the Hidden Legacy series following Nevada, Sapphire Flames brings us a new leading lady and an entirely new big bad knocking on her door. The story inside is heart-poundingly hot and steamy. Catalina is about to give her big sister a run for her money as my favorite Baylor family member. The story itself is off the charts exciting and will leave readers begging and pleading for more. Speaking of which… Please, Ilona… can I have some more? Like now? Today. Within an hour. The next five minutes. For the love of God, I need more.
That being said, since this was an ARC, I cannot really dive much further in the plot, the characters, the steamy intrigue, the peeks in on Nevada, and all the deviously fun that makes up Sapphire Flames. What I can say is that … YOU NEED THIS BOOK!
