When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano—the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, and Andrea's former lover—die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate. Now she must work with Raphael as her search for the killer leads into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta. And dealing with her feelings for him might have to take a back seat to saving the world . . .
When you have a husband-wife team of writers, reader interest is peaked. But, when the wife is a native born Russian, and the husband is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army, the rumor mill operates at full speed. Contrary to rumor, however, Ilona Andews I just a pseudonym for Ilona and Gordon, who met while in an English Composition 101 class in college. Gordon even says Ilona got a better grade than he did.
The couple has co-authored four NYT and USAT bestselling series books, and a #1 NYT bestselling in the urban fantasy of Kate Daniel's, a more rustic fantasy entitled the Edge, a paranormal romance called Hidden Legacy, and the free weekly serial Innkeeper Chronicles (that and other interesting details can be found on their website).
Gordon and one live in Texas with their two children and several dogs and cats.
