I'm hoping there will be more of a personal connection with Drake in this one. I feel that I'm not getting enough info about him to really connect w/ him as a hero. Plus, I can't stand how he calls her "mate" and orders here around all the time. ***spoiler alert*** I KNEW that there was something otherworldly about taxi-driver Rene! I think Aisling can be a bit obtuse sometimes.

Well, I did end up liking Drake more in this one, but I still feel a disconnect. Aisling can tell us all she likes that
Book 3 in Katie MacAlister's Aisling Grey Guardian series (contemporary paranormal romance). This was a big step up from book 2 of the series. The plot was much more intricate with an insane number of challenges for Aisling to overcome:
Drake returns to Aisling's life and they attempt to come to a compromise they can both live with to stay together;
Her demon dog eats the king of the imps and the imps want Aisling's head;
There's a war brewing between the red and green dragons that lead to several

Light My Fire follows Aisling back to England where she's moving in with her new Guardian mentor Nora in London. Aisling is hoping that London will be far enough away from Paris to keep Drake away from her (and vice versa), but of course she couldn't be more wrong.

Like the previous books in the series Aisling and Jim, her demon-dog sidekick, find themselves in precarious situation after situation including, but not limited to: being nearly murdered multiple times by someone who wants Ai
Yay, Aisling's back! This time, she's in beautiful London, England. She's been accepted as an apprentice, and is looking forward to beginning her studies towards becoming a Guardian. Only problem? Just about everyone is out for her head.

No, really. This book does feature lots of politics (of the dragon-, Guardian- and demon variety), but each and every instance of it revolves around someone trying to do away with her, literally and figuratively.

It's always fun to follow Aisling and Drake's relat

I am loving these books, but why can't I have this cover:

I am enjoy a good look-and-drool and this cover would have helped me greatly, look at the gorgeous and manly man chest, 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 dragon

Book #3 in the Aisling Grey, Guardian novels. Now Aisling is in London about to start her training as a Guardian with her mentor Nora. But things are never easy and her recent past catches up with her - her mate Drake is in town, and war has started between the green and red septs. Also someone is trying to kill Aisling and people keep trying to get her to agree to support them as either Venediger or Prince of Abbaddon. This felt like a snack - not really a full meal, very easy and fast to consu ...more
Another great installment! Once again Jim had me lol'ing throughout the book. I think this one takes the cake for how much trouble Aisling can get into. I know she's never going to catch a break but jeez she never got out of trouble this one. Drake finally made me not want to kill him at times in this one too. Jim steals the show in this series, he's like the dark brother to Oberon. I absolutely love him.

A complete comedy of errors. Aisling bungles her way through one terrible event after another. But really by book three she shouldn't be allowed to use ignorance as an excuse anymore.

Still quite amusing when I could ignore the utter stupidity of some choices made.

Would be up for reading the next. Just have to resign myself that ignorance will always be the excuse. ~sigh~

I probably shouldn't have read this out of order. However after reading this one, I've determined that Ms. MacAlister is not the author for me. This book is fine. It's not bad. It's quirky and I just don't really like the character - Aisling. She does nothing for me. She kind of aggravates me. I tried it. Not going to read the previous two or any others in this series.

OMG I swear Aisling is a magnet for disaster, everywhere this chicks goes trouble follows. Love to see that Drake is opening up himself to her, and their relationship is getting stronger. I swear I want a demon dog like Jim lol, he makes this book 20x better.Finally we know what Renee is!!!!!! Would recommend this series to anyone looking for an easy funny read!!!
Sonya friends and people I follow liked this more than I did. I don't know, it seems like weird plot turns came from nowhere to increase the stakes for Aisling...and she is annoying, after letting it sit for several weeks with ~ 1/4 of the book left, I'm adding it to the haven't finished (and probably won't) shelf.
As a sequel to Fire Me Up, this book did not disappoint. I like that it introduced more dragon politics and showed realistic relationship compromise between Aisling and Drake. (Come on, you didn't really expect that they'd stay separated, did you?) There were some developments in Aislings life that I certainly wasn't expecting. It's going to make things interesting for Aisling as she tries to be Drake's mate and a guardian all at once! There were fewer laugh out loud moments, but I was interest ...more

Aisling Grey is a recent transplant to London and eager to start her training as Guardian. Aisling runs into several obstacles to the beginning of her training which leaves her wondering if she'll ever catch a break at all. Jim is unhappy with Aisling over not seeing his sweetheart. The unexpected appearances of Rene and Drake leave Aisling with many questions and very few answers. No one knows Peter Burke but he's vying for Venediger position and hopes that Aisling won't take up the position he ...more

These are fun and all, but I could stop right now and not worry. I'm not addicted, I don't need to know what happens next. They're too out there for me, and way too many things go on that I can't always keep up with. Not a waste of time or anything, but not a must-read.
This was was the worst of the 3 I've read so far. While I admit the guilty pleasure of these not intelligent books, this one is over the top far fetched. We'll see how #4 is...

There WAS a lot going on in terms of plotlines in this instalment of Aisling's adventures, but it worked for me in ways it obviously didn't work for other readers. Whereas the last book had Aisling dealing with the single 'mystery' in the conference hotel she was allowed to roam further, and get pushed under/hit by/bundled into, more modes of transport in more countries in this book. Drake was - more or less - true to his word to give her more space and autonomy and she promptly found herself ov
Tons of Suspense - My Favorite in This Series So Far, December 6, 2008
This is not a stand-alone book, so be sure to read "You Slay Me" and "All Fired Up" first. I listened to the audio version of this book and Barbara Rosenblat gives a another stellar performance telling this fun, witty and suspensful story.

Aisling Gray moves to London with her demon sidekick Jim, to be the guardian apprentice of her friend Nora. Once again, she is joined by her "taxi driver" Rene and of course, her "mate" Drak
Light My Fire is my favourite of the Aisling Grey, Guardian novels so far. I really couldn’t put this book down, although I did find things got a bit confusing at the end.

Aisling has moved to London to begin her Guardian training when things begin to go awry. Surprise, surprise! As in the previous two novels, trouble seems to find Aisling no matter where she goes. Through no fault of her own (or at least not much of her own) she finds herself being hunted by imps, demon lords, dragons and even t
I read this in one sitting. Things get really serious for Aisling, there are a lot of revelations in this book, her relationship with Drake improved and it just shows us that open communication is the key. She is in a total mess here, stepping on responsibilities she doesn't want but somehow because of fate, a certain duty (burden) is upon her. Gabriel gave up challenging Drake for Aisling to be his mate due to some reason unconfirmed. This story started where the second book left off, there are ...more

Aisling has moved to London to begin her Guardian training with Nora. Before her things are even delivered to the apartment she shares with Nora, trouble once again finds Aisling.
Nora is being investigated by the Guardings. And has been told she can no longer be a mentor, at least until she is cleared of the charges against her. Drake has followed Aisling to London, and once again needs her to attend a dragon meeting as his mate. The green and red dragons are at war, which means multiple attempt
Katie, Katie, Katie, what am I going to do with you?
The beginning of this book was the most predictable thing ever, and when I say beginning I mean the first 200 pages, it felt like a copy of the other two books. Repetitive elements include:

- Aisling making a stupid intro comment and Jim being sarcastic
- SURPRISE! Rene's here, apparently out of nowhere! Oh, I'm sure everyone was oh so surprised at this SURPRISING event!
- DOUBLE SURPRISE! Drake is here.. and wait a minute...yes! Out of Nowhere! A

Such a great little series. Finished this one up in two days and now I have to wait to see how it all wraps up...kind of makes me want to scream or pester my library to get the book in faster. I am loving the transformation that is taking place with Drake. He has really come a long way in loosening up in this book. I also enjoy seeing a more protective side of Jim. These two have Aisling's back and it is evident how much they care for her. Poor Aisling she is caught up as a pawn in several peopl ...more

I love this series so so much!

Poor Aisling had her hands full in this one! They just wouldn't cut her some slack! From one disaster straight to another. Drake won't let her be,she tries to continue on with her training as a Guardian but failing to do so, she gets kidnapped,Demon princes try to manipulate her, Imps want her head on a platter, Jim is gettin on her nerves and complicates things,there are attempts made on her life and Dragons claim her as their mate. I really like Ash, she's fun, ob
Poor poor Aisling. I have no idea how she coped throughout this book. It was like the world was ending and it was all on her shoulders.
Red dragons trying to kill her, check.
Imps trying to kill her because Jim accidentally ate there king, check.
Trying to be the mate of the green dragon wyvern but failing because she keeps on getting kidnapped or hurt, check.
Being summoned by a demon prince to be dragged into the demon world, check.
On top of that ther was something fishy going on in the dragon wor
Light, fluffy and the narrator obviously had a blast with the audiobook.

Aisling is still a bubble-headed ignorant mess who manages to get herself into trouble and then some more trouble to make things more interesting. Her insistence on doing things her way, when she knows very little about the world she's now a big part of and her habit of ignoring her problems until she's forced to deal with them, are things that make it hard for me to relate to her.

I may not like Aisling all that much but th
May 8, 2014- 5 Stars (2nd time to read)

Since it had been 4 years since I'd originally read this book, and it would seem that I'd forgotten most of what happened, it felt new again. Funny, sexy and fantastic. And this time around with this series, I have opted to listen them in audiobook. What an awesome decision that was (yay me- pat on the back), *que gushing about the audiobook reader* because Barbara Rosenblat is the bomb. Her reading voices are so good, and the characters all are very distin
One more series I was glad to I got pulled into. Katie MacAlister once again "fires" your imagination with another good addition to her Aisling Grey series. This book is just as steamy and just as interesting as the previous ones. I missed the wry humor that was sprinkled more liberally in the first books, but overall still another great offering!
There is definite growth here, not just the characters, but I think the writer as well. The one consistent thing I've seen in all Katie MacAlister's bo

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 dialo ...more
