From the cover:

Kelley Armstrong returns to the Otherworld with “Chaotic,” where a half-demon tabloid journalist’s boring date is saved…by a supernatural explosion? She’s off to save the day — if only her less-than-stellar date wouldn’t tag along! Luckily, the intriguing, infuriating, and just plain sexy werewolf/jewel thief Karl Marsten also appears.

(This is a novella in the Women of the Otherworld series, after Bitten, Stolen, Dime Store Magic, Industrial Magic, and Haunted.)

I really wish I had read this before I went ahead in the series and read Personal Demon.

This novella is probably my favourite from the whole series. Not only does it do a fantastic job of introducing Hope’s character, it also manages to personalize Karl. I didn’t really have the warm-and-fuzzies for him when he came up in the series earlier, and later in the series, I found it hard to see him as being one of the “good guys”. But after reading this novella, I get it. I really do. He’s likable here, and it sets the stage for things later on in the series.

Plus, who doesn’t like a good ol’ heist story?
