Blurb:  YOU FLIRT WITH FIRE…

For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she’s seen some extraordinary things. It’s too bad no one else believes her claim a supernatural murder occurred at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that’s both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon’s fire burns.

WHEN YOU DATE A DRAGON

Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul . . .

Review:  It had been quite some time since I’d read a Katie MacAlister book that fell into one of the many connected series that this book is in.  Either I don’t remember something on the important side, or I missed a book or two, so it took a little bit to put what I did remember in perspective against what was going on in this book.  Once I did, though, I dropped right into it.

As with so many of her other books, this was insanely hysterical.  I think it is because there is so much of that crazy running rampant through the book that I find it a bit easier to overlook the insta-love that goes on.  It may be insta-love, but it sure isn’t perfect.  All that isn’t perfect is tossed around with loads of attitude and spunk and totally inappropriate tangent conversations that can’t help but crack you up.  It is the humor I love the most about this.

The characters themselves would be absolutely lost and useless without the humor and attitude, though.  Kostya is hugely pompous in a way that would normally be grating and annoying, but it is presented so that instead of hating the guy, you are laughing at him.  Aoife is kind of a doofus, but again, as a hugely funny doofus.

This was a perfect humor break needed after some heavier books.
