Overview

I’m Aisling Grey—but you can call me “frustrated.”

The dragon of my dreams—uber-sexy Drake Vireo, wyvern of the green dragons—has finally decided to make an honest woman of me. That is, if we ever make it to the wedding at the same time! Being left at the altar may have cooled my jets, but not my passion...a good thing when Drake disappears and it's up to me to find him.

Most brides just have in-laws to worry about. Me? I have warring dragons, ticked-off demon lords, eternal damnation, and a mage who wants to challenge me for an otherworldly position I don’t even want. At least Jim, my doggie-demon, is always at my side. He’s never let me down—yet…

Guardian Aisling Grey and her wyvern lover Drake Vireo have decided on a simple wedding. However, unknown relatives are coming out of the woodwork from even unheard of paranormal places demanding an invitation to the wedding of the year. As the numbers grow, even imps want to be there though one must be cautious in allowing that species anywhere near a gala unless food fights are on the agenda. As their wedding plans expand to the point they consider elopement, the hostilities between the green and the red dragons ignites into what looks like a heated war. Finally Fiat the blue dragon demands Drake back off as he has a prior claim on Aisling. Overwhelmed by it all, Aisling concludes she either remains single or she abducts Drake so that he can become her beloved spouse. ---- The fourth Aisling Grey romantic fantasy is a wonderfully amusing relationship drama with some YOU SLAY ME escapades. Fans of the series will enjoy the zany goings-on as the lead couple prepares for a wedding celebration that has completely gotten out of control especially on the supernatural plane. HOLY SMOKES, this is a laugh out loud tale that readers will appreciate while wondering elopement but to where, breaking up but they light each other¿s fire or I do while dragons war and Fiat heatedly objects. ---- Harriet Klausner

Review by Jen: Holy Smokes is the fourth and final book following the life and love of Aisling Grey (although I understand she and Drake will be pretty prominent characters in Katie MacAlister's new Silver Dragons series). This is a series of books you have to read in order for them to make any sort of sense. So, here's the order: You Slay Me, Fire Me Up, Light My Fire. In this installment, Aisling and Drake are finally getting married, but as the book opens, Drake isn't showing up for the ceremony. They do eventually make it to the altar, but nothing in Aisling's life is ever done easily. I've been a big fan of this series since book one. They are full of humor and you can't help but just shake your head at all the trouble Aisling gets herself into (think Lucille Ball from "I Love Lucy"). But there was something about this book that fell a little short for me. Aisling seemed to whine more than usual (or perhaps it's only my memory since I read book three over a year ago). She didn't seem to be herself and I kept waiting for someone to slap some sense into her. Oh how I wish I could give this particular book a better review since I loved the previous ones. It did have a happy ending and left lots of questions unanswered that will hopefully be tackled in the new series.

This was the first Katie MacAlister book I ever read. While house sitting for a friend, I saw is lying on a chair and decided to give it a try. Even though it's the last book of the Aisling Grey series, I was hooked after the first chapter and went out and bought the three previous books. Now Katie's books are the first ones I look at whenever I enter a book store. This series contains a lot of world building, so I do recommend starting at the beginning. You'll never find these books lacking in endearing characters, humor, or romance.

This final nook in the series was a great wrap-up of details. The characters were great.ooking forwrd to reading the silver dragon tales next.

Action, nonsense, magic, and sexy men...what more can you ask for? Aisling runs a mile a minute trying to have a wedding, get out of being "Damned", avoid getting herself killed by red dragon sept members, and return to being officially Drake's mate. In addition to the normal comic relief, Jim, the demon in a Newfie's body ("Who am I? Where am I? Do I still have all my toes?"), Aisling's Uncle Damian also gives way to some great lines, such as when he sees Fiat (beginning of chapter 8): The dark voice in her head can get a little distracting at times (which is probably more to illustrate how Aisling is distracted by it) and her Stepmother's rants annoy you as they should (anyone else have a member like that in their family?!). I am sad to see the series end..

In which Aisling is pregnant, proscribed, almost makes it to the alter on multiple occasions, and can't shut her aunt up. On the plus side, Drake has finally admitted he loves her. As usual, she's continually getting into trouble. Maybe I'm tired, but this installment doesn't seem to have quite the zing and snap of the earlier Aisling. She's either sobbing, yelling, banishing poor Jim to Alkasha, or attacking Drake for hot steamy sex. The new characters are sort of flat -- Aunt Paula gives me a headache! It picks up somewhat at the end, but it just really felt as if MacAlister dashed this one off in a hurry.

This is a funny, laugh out-loud romantic comedy series. I've enjoyed them all. Warning to the faint at heart, there is sex and lots of dream loving. The dragons are interesting and the idea of being in control of keeping the evil from entering our world kept me interested, so did all the laws involving what a person could do or not do in the other world. The different roles taken by the members took a bit to follow, but I enjoyed this series. Katie MacAllister's writing is full of humor.

You will enjoy this book if you love a main character who "wonder[s] if there was ever going to be a time when she wasn't at least five paces behind everyone else, mentally speaking" (p.128) and additionally wonders if "[t]his is going to be another one of those days where people start talking about stuff like she knows what's going on, only she really doesn't, and she spends the whole time trying to catch up" (page 137). The author uses the main character's willful ignorance and deliberate stupidity as an excuse not to have a plot or character development. Even if this were the only book available to read, your time would be better spent balancing your checkbook or cleaning the toilet. This book gets a half star only because librarything doesn't have a system set up to give negative stars.

Aisling gives new meaning to the saying "try and try again" as she and Drake attempt to get it together long enough to swap their marriage vows. Another very cute installment in the urban fantasy/paranormal romance series.Now....on to the part where I speak of spoilers! Reader Beware!!There were a couple things I just had to bring forward about my reading. One is, what the heck was up with the dream Aisling had about rescuing Drake? With Drake vehemently denying he sent it to her himself one would have thought this was a mystery to be solved. However, this little plot point trailed off without answer. I hate it when stories do that.Also had to mention my favorite LOL part when Jim regained his second shape as a small Scottish Terrier. A big difference from the Newfie form he was used to! It was just so cute to picture. "Fires of Abaddon, Ash! I wasn't done picking a form! I was just looking at this one! Oh, man, I'm a midget!" :-)

Great fourth book in the series. Effrajim the demon is still the standout side-kick character and the hijinks that Aisling gets into as well as the romance are top notch in this book.

Aisling blunders her way to success in a I love Lucy style that is engaging and hilarious.
