Back cover blurb:
Being quite the novice Guardian/Keeper of the Gates to Hell, I decided to get in touch with my otherworldly self by attending a convention of supernatural beings in Budapest. For my other career as a courier (with a somewhat tarnished reputation), I have to deliver a priceless amulet to a hermit, much to the amusement of Jim, my wise-cracking fury Newfoundland demon. He should be happy that I was able to squeak through customs with a talking dog…

And guess who just happens to be staying at the same hotel as I am? Drake. You remember him. The Wyvern of the Green Dragons? My so-called “mate?” The man who literally fires me up, and makes me act like a love-struck schoolgirl? That Drake.

Meanwhile, mortal men are falling at my feet. I don’t know if it’s the Hungarian air or what, but it’s downright embarrassing. All I want to do is find a Guardian mentor to help me control my powers. Should be easy—except that every Guardian I meet with winds up dead. I’m starting to get a complex…

My review:
Such a fun read, and just as good as the first book in the series.

Aisling, her demon dog Jim and – oddly enough – Rene the French taxi driver are in Budapest for an Otherworld conference, where Ash hopes she will find a Guardian mentor. However, nothing is ever as simple as it could be, and along the way she runs into her dragon lover Drake and gets embroiled in the murder mystery involving an amulet, a hermit, a professional virgin and a whole heap of naked incubi.

Of course, the scenes with Drake were a highlight. They certainly lit each other’s fires! *fans self* I laughed, I squirmed, I gripped the edge of my Kindle, and by the end I felt a little bit sad, but I could not put it down! I think I’ll be reading the next one in the series sooner rather than later. Great stuff.

My rating: 5/5
