Must Love Dragons by Stephanie Rowe

Sometimes you need to read something completely light and mindless. A friend sent me Must Love Dragons and while it is not the kind of book I would have probably bought myself, it was well worth my time. The book is one part Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one part Jennifer Crusie, and one part Good Omens.
Stephanie Rowe has created a hilarious world peopled by dragons, dragon slayers, Satan, the Goblet of Eternal Youth, Guardians, and the occasional average human. Her treatment of Satan, sex, and relationships is light and humorous. There is something of a mystery to keep you reading and wondering exactly what is going on.
Must Love Dragons is the second in the Immortally Sexy series which currently has four titles. Without a doubt this is worthy of a beach read if you are looking for something silly, fantastical, vaguely sensual (after all, the characters are Satan, a dragon, and a slayer. You can't expect that their sexual appetites would be staid and boring) and yet remarkably... hmm, I'm stumped for a word. It is not sweet. It is not innocent. It is definitely not wholesome. But, it is romantic in a good old-fashioned boy meets girl kind of way.
Read. Enjoy. Don't think too hard.
