This week’s book boyfriend is someone that is responsible for the reading hangover that I’ve been in since Monday of this week. I have not been able to move on from his set of books and it’s all because I love the hell out him and his heroine and the world that was created for them to live in.
Mad Rogan is the hero in the Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews and he’s a complete dreamboat. He’s an asshole but he’s an asshole that lives by a code and the more I got to know him, the more I fell in love with him.Burn for Me

#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews launches a brand new Hidden Legacy series, in which one woman must place her trust in a seductive, dangerous man who sets off an even more dangerous desire…
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.
Connor “Mad” Rogan is a Prime Telekinetic. He’s a magic powerhouse who can level cities and has leveled cities while working for the US Army. He’s mostly known for the destruction he brought upon Mexico and he’s known the world over for what he has and can do with his magic. He’s a bad ass who is deadly but what I loved about him was that he was also pretty normal and could definitely make fun of himself.
“Yes, I’m a hermit. Mostly I brood,” Mad Rogan said. “Also, I’m very good at wallowing in self-pity. I spend my days steeped in melancholy, looking out the window. Occasionally a single tear quietly rolls down my cheek.”
As deadly as Connor was, he was also the biggest flirt whenever Nevada Baylor was around and I freaking loved it.
“He glanced at me, his eyes dark. “Would you rather talk about your dream?”
“Considering that I was featured in it, I think I deserve to know the particulars. Were my clothes missing because we were in bed? Was I touching you?” He glanced at me. His voice could’ve melted the clothes off my body. “Were you touching me?”
Hahaha, what a great scene this was. And so was this next one.
“Did you send an escort with my family?”
“Yes. They’re a target.”
“How did you know they would be leaving?”
“My people saw them load up, called me, and I told them to follow.” Duh.
“You’re welcome. I plan to hold them hostage until you sleep with me.” I stumbled. He turned and gave me a brilliant, impossibly handsome smile. “Just kidding.”
I swear there are so many reasons to love this guy and you should read the Hidden Legacy series to find out all of those reasons. This series rocked my socks. For real. This was me every time Rogan was on the scene.
Yep. That’s right.
Here’s what Mad Rogan looked like in my head.

Until next week…enjoy!
I LOVE Mad Rogan…he is such a hoot and a GREAT hero to read. He definitely makes for the perfect book boyfriend and I love your pick for him, simply perfect.
Same. He’s such a great hero.
I can support your vision of Mad Rogan, he definitely works. I have no idea who I pictured when I was reading these books. I never really get any particular person in my head when I’m reading, I now feel like I should reread and see if Michael Fassbender works for me, though. I feel like he would be right, though.
I seriously cannot wait for Diamond Fire to release. I just know that I’m going to love Mad Rogan all over again.
