The last thing historical mystery writer Maggie Kelly needs in her hectic life is an arrogant man. But when brilliant aristocratic sleuth Alexandre Blake, Viscount Saint Just, walks off the pages of her latest Regency novel and into her New York apartment, that's just what she ends up with and she has only her own imagination to blame. Although having an out-of-time gorgeous hero around is challenging, to say the least, it does come in handy when Maggie is suspected of killing her ex-boyfriend. Lively, sassy, and occasionally off-the-wall hilarious, this paranormal romance makes for great summer reading, and Michaels's many fans will be waiting

From the back of the book: My name's Maggie Kelly, and I'm as sane as you are. Or as sane as you'd be if you'd just discovered the "fictional" character that made you a bestselling author hanging out in your apartment. His name is Saint Just. Alexandre Blake, Viscount Saint Just, to be exact. And he's a detective, which might actually come in handy, considering I'm now a murder suspect.... Isn't it just like an ex-boyfriend to up and die on your sofa at the worst possible time? Did I mention the deceased was also my publisher? So while I try to figure out how not to get arrested, I'm also wondering how I'll get out of this one with my career--and my life--intact. Not to mention my heart. Because I can't completely ignore my attraction to Saint Just. He's my dream man made flesh, after all. Even if he does leave the cap off the toothpaste. So here I am. In trouble. In lust. In over my head. Trying to get the NYPD off my case and the supersleuth of yesteryear back into my PC where he belongs. These things are so much cuter when they happen to Meg Ryan. If I could write a happy ending for this one, believe me, I would. But first I'd need a clue where to start....

The first book in the 'Maggie' series. Entertaining, fun and creative. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

A romance writer's fictional hunk character comes to life to help her solve the mystery of her boyfriend's murder. Very light.

I got hooked on this series after picking up this, the first book at a garage sale. I thought it was funny, just imagine being a historical romance writer and having your characters show up at your New York apartment! The hero and his sidekick have to adjust to modern New York with their Regency England manners. I saw several negative comments on this book, but I found it a light frothy mystery and Kasey Michaels is a great writer of historical and contemporary romances with comedic twists.

Fun mystery/fantasy. Michaels does a breezy turn with an old plot idea -- the author's characters come to life and solve the murder mystery -- but manages to avoid the expected romance between author and character.

Isn't it just like an ex-boyfriend to up and die on your sofa at the worst possible time? And now Maggie Kelly, author of a Victorian mystery series is suspect number one. She's in trouble and it seems like the only one who is going to help her out of it is her own fictional crime solving hero who has suddenly left the computer and is now camping out in her apartment. As Maggie says, "If I could write a happy ending for this murder, believe me, I would."

This is a great cozy.
