Pre-Squee and Giveaway: Burn For Me by Ilona Andrews

Posted 2 July, 2014 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | Giveaway, Pre-Squee | 26 Comments

Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at The Book Swarm and the Bewitched Bookworms. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! Sure, we’ll do full reviews closer to the release date but this feature gives us a chance to share a little bit of our love, whether it be for the story, cover, characters, or whatever. We’re quite flexible in our book love.

I’m Pre-Squeeing for a new Ilona Andrews series that doesn’t come out until OCTOBER. Not that I want it to be October or anything but I want y’all to have the chance to read this one, like, now. Because it’s awesome. So very awesome. In fact, I stayed up way past my bedtime (because, stupid me, I started this around 9pm at night. What I was I thinking?) to finish it. Action, magic, chemistry and plenty of heat — what else could you ask for?

I’m hearing that this is only a trilogy, which makes me terribly sad. I want ten books, minimum. Maybe more. Seriously, I’ve now read (and reread — I’m starting a reread of this one soon) everything that the fabulous writing team that is Ilona Andrews has shared with the world and firmly believe that they can do no wrong.

And guess what? I have an extra copy to give away. Anyone interested? Rafflecopter thing-me-a-bob  at the bottom! (US only. I know. Sorry. It’s just so damned expensive to mail outside of the country and this is a me giveaway, rather than a pub one. Though the publisher was awesome enough to send me an extra. Thanks, Avon!)

Urban Fantasy/Romance
384 pages, paperback
Expected publication: October 28, 2014
Publisher: Avon


Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

  1. Ahh Mary!! so good ? That makes me even more excited.. and Thank you so much again for getting me a copy at BEA!

    That is definitely a very very good Pre-Squee Book this week:)

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed this one as much as you did, Mary! I’m definitely looking forward to it and the fact that you want ten books minimum instead of just three says so much. 😉

  3. SO EXCITED TO READ THIS MARY!!!! Love me some Ilona Andrews:) Glad to know you were a fan and it kept you up late reading. Love it when that happens! And yes to 10 books please, 3 is simply not enough!

  4. I’m so excited for this book to come out. A whole new series to swoon over (only three?) We need more! I’m so glad Burn for Me is such an awesome read…now the wait. Thanks for the giveaway Mary 🙂

  5. Best. Squee. EVAH. This book, Mary. This book was SO good. When I got the email that said I got the book, I did a happy dance. No really, I did. My husband thinks I’m NUTS sometimes, LOL. Fortunately, I got that email in the morning, and I immediately quit everything else, and read this book. Glad you loved it too! I might shoot you an email on GR, b/c you’re the only other person I know who has read this.

  6. Really looking forward to this new series! The current Sweep in Peace is barely keeping the Ilona Andrews goodness high enough in my bloodstream!

    Ilona Andrews is definitively my favorite urban fantasy writer. I also really enjoy Patricia Briggs, Benedict Jacka, and Seanan McGuire

    I’m eager to read this. Rereading the Kate/Curran series takes me only so far, and I’m eager for another new Ilona Andrews book to love.

    I ADORE this author duo!! I cannot read anything written by them fast enough. I am so bad I buy the dead tree version, the Kindle version and the audible version as soon as they are available, That way I have them in the house, my bag and the car at all times!!
