Katie MacAlister,
Aisling Grey, Guardian #1: You Slay Me
(Onyx, 2004)

If you liked either Tanya Huff's Summon the Keeper series or Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, Bounty Hunter novels, you are going to LOVE this book.

Katie MacAlister has a laugh-a-minute dry Scottish wit that keeps you rolling in the aisles through this romantic fantasy romp. Her lead character, Aisling (Ashling) Grey, has just started a new job as a messenger with her Uncle Damian.

She has a golden dragon (specifically, an aquamanile) to deliver to a French collector. When she arrives, she discovers the collector hanging dead above an incomplete circle for summoning demons and a devastatingly handsome man named Drake who claims to be with Interpol. Next thing Aisling knows, Drake has stolen her dragon and she's the prime suspect for the murder.

This is a quick and light read -- maybe not one you want to take to quiet environments if you have a tendency to laugh out loud!
