That Time I Got Drunk and Saved a Human

Kimberly Lemming brings humor and heat to high fantasy in the third entry in her Mead Mishaps series, That Time I Got Drunk and Saved a Human. This romp features Cherry, a human woman held captive for years by a negligent dragon, and the lonely dragon who swoops into her tower to save her. Already close to escaping and wary of dragons, Cherry drugs her would-be savior before realizing he's there to free her. Dante, her dragon rescuer, is thrilled to have found his mate now that all friends seem to be pairing up with the human women of the quaint town of Boohail, and he's determined to keep her. After all, what's a little poisoning between mates?

Much has changed since Cherry was kidnapped. An entity once revered as a goddess was exposed as an evil lich and taken down by Cherry's sister, allowing demons to live in relative peace with humans once again, instead of in antagonistic exile. As Cherry adjusts and her new (accidental) husband attempts to court her, they work their way back to Boohail, neither of them aware that she and his friends call the same town home.

Lemming (That Time I Got Drunk and Yeeted a Love Potion at a Werewolf) employs her signature brand of hijinks to hook readers before sneaking in the earnestness and community-building that makes her novels so heartwarming. Cozy like Travis Baldree's Legends and Lattes, trope-heavy and sexy like Ruby Dixon's Ice Planet Barbarians, and hilarious like television's Galavant, That Time I Got Drunk and Saved a Human is joyful escapism at its finest. --Suzanne Krohn, librarian and freelance reviewer
