It was supposed to be a simple job: Just deliver the gold dragon statue to its new owner in Paris. But when Aisling Grey arrives at her destination, she discovers that the new owner has been murdered in a way that suggests demonic influences.

While standing in the room with her murdered client, Aisling is approached by Drake Vireo, who claims to work for Interpol. Before she knows what has happened, Aisling is the real police's prime suspect, and Drake has stolen the statue.

Determined to find Drake and clear herself, Aisling ventures into the underworld. It seems that the sexy Drake is not human--he's an immortal wyvern dragon. Soon Aisling learns that not only is she a guardian of the gates of hell, she's also wyvern's mate. Like she really has time to deal with this stuff...

In the first of what I hope are many Aisling Grey novels, MacAlister shoots straight for the paranormal funny bone. Her outlandish sense of humor is the perfect complement to her sexy stories. (Sep., 352 pp., $6.99)
