Ignoring all past experience with the term "adventure", Millie and Daavi have signed on for one. Not quite neglecting the fact she is preparing for a big promotional event at her restaurant, which dignitaries and other very important people are likely to attend, Millie dons a rather charming straw hat and joins Daavi as he runs off to a deserted, rocky, sun-bleached isle, neighboring her own.
Daavi is recruited when the Department of Conservation needs a communications engineer to accompany them to hot, dusty Lea Island to help with their project: gathering lizards.
The creatures are borrowed from their rocky little homes to help make antivenom, and they need to be transported quickly and safely from all over the island in order to be useful. That's where Millie comes in - she gets a chance to show off her hotshot piloting skills, flying them in and out on her remote-controlled aircraft, converted from a toy into a handy sky-lift for her pocket-sized passengers.
Fitz is along for the ride to assist Millie and Daavi. Reptiles aside, he's looking forward to catching up with Rinn. Rinn, on the other hand, seems more than a little put out about a mysterious woman she keeps hearing about with whom Fitz seems to be spending all his time.
And neither Daavi nor Millie are going to like it when another very familiar face shows up to work alongside them. Edward might be from Millie's past, but he's dead set on making Daavi miserable, and he's not above taking a swipe at Rinn, either.
Juggling love, lizards, relationships, and radio equipment, can Millie and Daavi avoid herpetological hazards, get done on Lea, and get Edward out of their hair in time for the gala? And can Fitz avoid getting brained by Rinn long enough to figure out who the mysterious girl he's supposedly rendezvousing with is?
As usual, everyone's bitten off way more than they can chew.

Charming interspecies rom-com
In the interests of transparency, Duffy Weber produces and narrates the books in my own urban fantasy series and does a fabulous job. Confession: I am not a fan of lighthearted romances, even with fantasy elements, and I would not have listened to the books in this series if I didn’t so much enjoy working with Duffy. All that aside, I was surprised at how completely I was drawn into the lives of these delightful characters. Duffy’s narration is so engaging and enthusiastic, and these books are so clearly a source of personal joy for him, that I couldn’t help looking forward to the next bit of mischief that Daavi and his crew were going to fall into. Lots of smiles, hugging, and laughter in these books. Plus a fiendish villain in this one who will make you grind your teeth and yell “Boooooo!” And yet, even he proves to be capable of unexpected acts of heroism, even if he finds his own acts of kindness to be galling. He can’t help it, though; Daavi and his friends simply bring out the best in everyone!
