Spoiler warning! This is the third book in a series, and the review will contain spoilers for the previous two books. If you haven’t read any of the books yet, start with Burn for Me. If you aren’t caught up with the series, maybe come back for this review later.
Instead of being able to spend Christmas with her new boyfriend, Connor Rogan, one of the most powerful and magically gifted men in the United States, Nevada Baylor has to rush back to her family once they discover that her paternal grandmother, Victoria Tremaine, is coming for the family. Once back home, Nevada discovers added complications to her fledgling romance, when she finds Rynda Sherwood, nee Charles, Rogan’s ex-fiancee, in her kitchen. Rynda’s husband is missing and she’s pretty much being shunned by all the powerful people in Houston after Nevada, Rogan and their allies killed Rynda’s mother at the end of the previous book.
While several of the Baylor clan think it’s a dreadful idea for Nevada to help Rynda, as she may lose Rogan in the process, Nevada feels obligated to help the distressed and desperate woman. She wisely points out that if Rogan is going to go back to Rynda, they’re never going to have much of a future together, are they? She also needs to convince her mother, sisters and cousins that the best way to defend themselves against Victoria Tremaine is by forming a House of their own. This means coming out in the open with their powers, and being tested and proving their strength. If they register as a House, they will be protected for the next three years and evil grandma won’t be able to kidnap them and use their powers for her own gain.
