Ascension Saga: 4 (Interstellar Brides® Program: Ascension Saga)

Faith Jones is an Earth girl…and she’s not.
She’s half Aleran. And not just any half – a royal half.
Her mother is the queen, her sister is the heir, and her twin is determined to kill every alien on the planet if that’s what it takes to find their kidnapped mother.

Faith’s job is to hide her identity and infiltrate the Jax family household to discover who betrayed them and ordered a hit on their lives. Faith thinks she’s got it all under control, until she meets Lord Jax’s oldest son, Thordin. He’s sexy. He’s hot as hell. And the first time he sees her, he tells her the one thing she absolutely does not want to hear…Mine!

Her head says no, but her body? Well, that wanton traitor seems to have a mind of its own.


I usually read just about everything Grace writes and this one no exception. I love the characters and the strong women. The sex scenes are steamy and abundant. What I didn’t care for where how short the stories were and how the stories would just stop only to pick up on the next book. Why not just take the time to write a complete story of each sister and continue the saga, not make it incredibly short stories. To pay $2.99 for 97 pages that only took me 2hrs to read, not going to pay that again. I’m done with this saga. I don’t care how it ends. I’m not paying $2.99 + for such short stories. It’s a shame because I really liked these books too. – Amazon Customer (Verified Purchase)

Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon: MacAllen Clan (Dragon Guard Series Book 33)

Grab your hat and boots and head for the desert, ‘cause this lady’s claiming her Dragon and nothin’ will ever be the same.

On her “Eat, Pray, Love” soul-searching journey across the country with noting but her radio blastin’, the top rolled down, and her trusty red Jeep named Daisy Mae, Dax may have bitten off more than she can chew this time.

Bright red hair and a smile that darn near knocks him on his butt, the woman stuck on the side of the road is a wild filly J.D. would love to tame, but then again, she’s absolutely perfect just the way she is.

The desert’s hot but this couple’s hotter, not to mention the raised-from-the-dead Medicine Man who’s hell bent on bathing his special little precious in their blood. Talk about prickly as a cactus!

The Great Creator and the Universe don’t make mistakes and Fate Will Not Be Denied, but the flames of Destiny are hotter than ever before.

Wanting to see her smile just one more time before the ride home, J.D. looked forward and headed towards his tan and black filly named Sugar, asking the one question he was sure would get a rise outta Dax. “Ever ride a horse before?” “Ride a horse? Cowboy, I am a Horse. “Mills, Julia. Save a Horse, Ride a Dragon: MacAllen Clan (Dragon Guard Series Book 33). Kindle Edition.

Ascension Saga: 3 (Interstellar Brides®: Ascension Saga)

Although Trinity grew up on Earth, she’s Aleran. She’s been chosen by the artificial intelligence that bestows special gifts upon those deemed worthy. She’s been chosen to rule. To lead the planet and avoid the rising tides of war.

Leo is hers. She feels the truth every time he touches her. But enemies hunt them, her sisters are off on dangerous missions of their own, the queen is still missing, and in the royal court, nothing is what is seems…

  • Finally, the end of Trinity’s story. It does pick up where part two ended, but in order to get right back into the feel of the story, I would recommend re-reading the first two parts or at least skimming them prior to diving in. Grace is a master of storyline and characterization ( not to mention the heat!!!) ; I’m just really disappointed by her decision to adapt a cliffhanger format after 20+ successful books without using this crutch. Yes, others have used it, but it is usually used by authors trying to develop a readership not established authors. I definitely downgraded my review based on cliffhanger format. I feel the story lost momentum due to format. Still love author but just go ahead and be honest about price increase for your work and drop cliffhanger format, please!!! The completed book would be worth it!
  • The third in the Ascension saga, Trinity and Leo’s story. This is not a stand alone book, Trinity is protecting the throne on Alera with Leo by her side while the search for her mother, the queen, is still underway. A huge ball for Trinity is not helping, and trying to figure out who is an ally and who is an enemy. What was an enemy is now an ally, and more enemies keep coming. Now Leo, with the help of his father and the queen’s guard must find Trinity. While Trinity is trying to keep the throne safe, her sisters Faith and Destiny are on their own trying to get clues as to the location of their mother. I love this series, and although the ending is a HEA, you are left with many unanswered questions. Faith’s story is next, hopefully we will get some answers, though I doubt it. The saga has nine books and they are only published to book 5. I hope that Grace Goodwin gets the rest of the series done soon…..I do not like to be left hanging.

Dragon Her Home: Paranormal Dating Agency (Dragon Guard Series Book 37)

Cutoff from his Clan with his Dragon unresponsive, time was up. There was only one choice – go down fighting and take as many of the bastards with him as Dragonly possible.

Waiting for the Executioner to claim his life, he stood at the ready. Refusing to waver under the weight of his chains, time stood still…

A flash of scales, burning emerald in the darkness, a memory of pain and loss…then nothing. Freed from his bonds, the cage door open, Stone found himself completely and totally alone. No captors. No Executioner. No liberator. Absolutely no one.

Who had released him? Could it honestly have been…? No, it just wasn’t possible. The dead don’t come back just to unlock the door…do they?

Then who? And where had he or she gone? As a matter of fact, where were the Overlords? Where was the other Dragon he knew was being tortured? What the hell was going on?

The hunt is on. There’s no time to waste. Stone will move Heaven and Earth and more than a ton of snow to find the answers and save the only person who matters. Draggin’ her home may not be the answer, but standin’ by her side is what he’s meant to do.

“He’s gonna need you…” Gerri’s words still rung in her head. “Rough, tough, and bad-to-the-bone, with the inability to ask anyone for help even when the hot breath of Death is breathin’ down his neck. That’s your Mate, all wrapped up in a scaly, hard-to-crack, lovable-as-a-porcupine nutshell.”

“Wow, he sounds great,” she grumped sarcastically. “All that awesomeness and he’s a Dragon to boot.” Once again irritated at having her future mapped out for her, Annika watched wisps of her breath dance in the sub-zero breeze as she repeated aloud the exact argument, she’d given the renowned Matchmaker – who also happened to be her Godmother – in person less than a month ago.

“It’s not like I’m not a tad hardheaded myself.” Her chuckle was choppy, almost brittle in its delivery, just another sign that neither Vixen or woman liked being told what to do. “Some might even say too pragmatic for my own good,” she scoffed, mimicking Gerri’s tone and accent. “And now I find out that my true Fated Mate is from a race known for their high-handed arrogance and inability to compromise. It’s even been said that they are infamous for…” “Loyalty, faithfulness, devotion, and following their Mates into the very Pits of Hell if necessary, to keep the other half of their soul safe. They are the Universe’s Chosen Warriors for a reason. She does not make mistakes, my dear.”

Ascension Saga: 2 (Interstellar Brides®: Ascension Saga)

Leoron of Alera has learned the truth about his new mate’s identity, but landed in the hands of her enemies. The time for secrets is over…

  • Three more spires have been lit in the Citadel giving the Alerans proof that the queen is not the last descendant of the ancients that built it. More details of what has been happening on Alera while the queen has been in hiding come to light. There are some surprise cameos that really bring the scope of what is happening into full focus. -Bookworm555
  • The continuing story of Trinity, now on Alera, claiming the throne until she can find her mother, with Leo by her side. She is in the middle of deceit and lies and others trying to get the throne. Part of her gaining entrance and the magic of the Alerian crown lets her see lies. Her sisters hid their appearances so they are out getting information for her. Leo is her mate but in keeping the plan in place he is only her guard to everyone else. Trinity feels so alone, she made her royal appearance and now is laying in the queens bed naked and someone has just crawled in behind her. It is not Leo. Now for part 3…..
  • I love how this picks up right where the first part left off. Leo is proven how loyal he is to not only his mate but his duty as a guard too. Trinity is out to find her mom the queen and show she is a strong leader. Now that her Ardor somewhat under control Trinity is going to find out who is behind taking her mother. I love how Destiny and Faith are hidden in plain sight helping look for clues. Leo and Trinity are still hot and heavy in this one. I love this series so far and so can’t wait for more to come.

AWW Snap Dragon: Paranormal Dating Agency (Dragon Guard Series Book 31)

Fate Will Not Be Denied…especially with Gerri Wilder on Her side

Roses are red, Violets are Blue.
Dragons have wings and Fairies do, too.

Unfortunately for Tristan, no amount of Dragon fire or Fairy dust will keep the most renowned Matchmaker in the Universe from making sure he has his happily-ever-after in record time. She’s not putting up with any of his sh…ahem, fertilizer. No way, no how.

Everything’s coming up Sunshine, Daffodils, and Snapdragons come Hell or high water. You can count on that.

“Neither was I, Little Sister.”

Felicity spun towards Bitsy, immediately enraged and ready to blow a fuse. “You think I don’t want more? That the others don’t want their own adventures? Their own fun? Their own freakin’ lives?” Taking a step forward, forcing her sister to move backward, she raged through gritted teeth, “We all do, Bits. Every bloody one of us. We want mates, some little Fairylings, a house, even a Goddess-damned white picket fence. So, grow the hell…”

The door flew open cutting off Felicity’s grand finale as a short, platinum-haired woman stamped into the room, pointed her blood-red fingernail right at Flicity and ordered, “Stop bitchin’ and come with me. I can help.”

Watching the woman do an about-face on her four-inch black leather stilettos without so much as a ‘How do you do?’, Fliss looked at Bitsy whose eyes were opened as wide as they could get and mouth was hanging open, and whispered, “Do you know her?”

“Nope,” Bitsy slowly shook her head, still staring at the spot where the woman had been standing. “But from the power rolling off of her, I’d say you better get a move on. She’s not someone I’d mess with, and ya’ know I mess with everybody.”

Splash Investment: Paranormal Dating Agency (Heads N’ Tails Book 5)

Hannah Harper sought safety for herself away from the ocean, only returning out of necessity. Working at Heads N’ Tails, she thought she was safe from the creature hunting mermaids. Love was the last thing on her mind. How could she find love when she didn’t know who to trust?

Alec White sees an opportunity to invest in a level at Heads N’ Tails dedicated to water shifters. Little did he know his meddling aunt had set it all up in hopes he would find love. But when he finds it, will he be able to keep it?

Why do I want him to ask me out? She hadn’t wanted to date anyone. Not when she didn’t know who to trust. Then it hit her, he came to her true love’s call. Even though it was when she was too young to understand the meaning of the call. She was with Alec when her brother died. There’s no way he could have done that and be with her at the same time. Maybe she could trust Alec. At least in that he wouldn’t suck her dry and leave her at the bottom of the ocean floor.

Dragon Got Your Tongue: Paranormal Dating Agency (Dragon Guard Book 24)

Take one fed-up Queen of the lions, add one foolhardy Dragon Guardsman then mix-in the wildest matchmaker in the universe and you’ve got a rollercoaster ride of mayhem, mischief and mate-trimony.

Savannah’s tried everything to find the mate she’s meant to spend her life with and quite frankly, she’d rather be declawed than meet another crazy male cat.

Hayes’ clan is full of lovebirds instead of dragons and be honest, he’s disgusted by the whole damn thing.
But Fate won’t be denied…right?

When her Pride is threatened and his Clan is called in to help, there’ll be more than flying fur and soaring scales.

This Queen has met her match and she’ll get no say in the matter.
After all, her Dragon’s got her Tongue…

Still smiling, the matchmaker sat back up, grabbed her pen from the table and continued, “Alright, let’s try this again since you’re a shifter and one of those hot-blooded dragons, I have no doubt that you like sex, but do you like to be in charge? Or are you just as happy letting your mate take the reins?”

“Like I said, I want us to be true partners, and that includes in the bedroom…or wherever we may be.” Hayes winked, finally feeling comfortable to be his usual cheeky self. “I know the second I meet her that I won’t be able to keep my hands off of her and I’m praying to the Heavens that she’ll feel the same about me.”

Slamming her hand on the table, Gerri whooped and hollered, “Hell yeah, now that’s the kind of answers I’m looking for.” She jumped up to her full height of four feet, eleven inches and practically skipped to the bar, coming back with a fifth of his favorite Irish whiskey and two glasses.

Mills, Julia . Dragon Got Your Tongue: Paranormal Dating Agency (Dragon Guard Book 24) . MTW Press. Kindle Edition.

This couple were so enjoyable to watch. Watching Gerri work her magic is always fun, especially when the couples are as funny as these two are. The characters are engaging and well-written. I enjoyed every moment spent reading this story.
