Playing With Fire by Katie MacAlister

Playing with Fire by Katie MacAlister is the first book in her new Silver Dragons series. It's basically a continuation of her series featuring Aisling Grey. Aisling still appears but the story is focused on a new heroine, May Northcott. I wish I would have paid attention to the whole new series thing. If I had, I wouldn't have been so surprised at the ending. It's a total cliff hanger and the next book won't be out until October 2008. 

May is a doppelganger, she has the ability to walk in shadows which makes her a great thief. Unfortunately, she has to steal for her "employer" the demon lord Magoth. While on a job, May meets Gabriel Tauhou, the leader of the silver dragons. They quickly discover that May is his mate, but happily ever after won't be so easy for these two. Don't expect that happy ending right away though, Aisling and Drake's story lasted *four* books. If you're a fan of that series not to worry, Drake, Aisling and her demon dog Jim play a big part in this one. Playing with Fire is creative and fun, it's nice to see a break from the traditional romance mold in more ways than one.
