I am loving these books, but why can’t I have the cover to the right!? I am enjoy a good look-and-drool and this cover would have helped me greatly, look at the gorgeous and manly man chest, we may have to play a game of find-the-nipple (he doesn’t seem to have any!) but that could be fun! Oh well moving on….the book! Once again, Aisling get’s into more crap then you can shake a stick at, problem number one: Jim ate the Imp King; problem number two: Drake is a right bastard who betrayed her trust; Problem number 3: a Prince of Hell is trying to coerce her into helping him; Problem number 4: the red dragons are trying to assasinate her…I could go on, as there are more but I only have so much room!This book is very similar to the others, only set in London rather the Paris and Budapest. Aisling manages to entangles herself in disaster after disaster barely scrapping through one before another hits; however, despite the repeativeness of this I can’t help but still be thoroughly entertained by these books, I cannot stress enough the effect of having a demon possesed Newfoundland making sarcastic comments, no matter what happens or how repeatative it becomes having Jim there will always guarentee that I will enjoy the book! I think that Jim should pop up into all boring books and spice them up a little, I wonder if Katie MacAlister would mind lending him out?

But, aside from my growing Jim obsession, I also have my Aisling obsession to nurture as well. I really like her, I like that she doesn’t rely on Drake, her mate and instead solves problems on her own without expecting him to ride in and save the day. Most fated-to-be-mated storylines can often become this way. But I still seem to have a Drake problem, he just isn’t doing it for me, Aisling loves him and he does have his moments where he makes me smile but he is just a little…meh-bring-back-Jim!

I am really loving this series at the moment, it is light hearted without being completely shallow, with a lot of humour and crazy situations to keep me glued to the page.

About Katie MacAlister

For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn’t think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and are regulars on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
