Dragon Down: Dragon Guard Book 22

Revenge is a dish best served cold…
Cold was not Kamdyn’s style. Never had been. Never would be. She was the daughter of Evan McGregor, heiress to the power and magic of a hundred centuries of unstoppable witches and no one, not even a cold-hearted, thieving murderer was going to take it from her. She would get back what was hers, defeat the traitor who’d dare to take her family from her, watch him burn then leave his ashes for the Elements. Revenge may be cold, but vengeance burns white-hot.
If it hadn’t been for that blasted dragon…

Be careful what you wish for…
Wishes and dreams were for other people. Callum had learned at a young age to make the most of the hand he’d been dealt. Life was tough, but he was tougher. As the son of one of the most revered Guardsmen of all times, he would take what he wanted and make no apologies. Go down with your sword in your hand and no regrets in your heart was the O’Shea family motto but this dragon had no intentions of going down and regrets… well, they just weren’t his style. Come to think of it, neither was being careful.
If it hadn’t been for that infernal witch…

Secrets revealed, rising passions and an enemy they never saw coming force this couple to accept their Destiny and fight side-by-side to save all they hold dear.

Will it be enough? Will they be in time? Will this be the one time that Fate will be denied?

This is Callum and Kamdyn's story . Harry Potter twat and old Fart Face are just two of my favorite sayings in this book !!! Kam has a sassy mouth and her attitude gotta love her !!! Callum is feed up and kind of jealous of being alone but knows his mate is out there somewhere due to his dreams of her . Once he finds her and follows her into a cave everything breaks loose ! Kam is so stunned by Cal that without meaning to she hits him with a paralyzing spell so strong that Cal hits the ground like a ton of bricks !! But Cal asked his dragon to help me to break free help her . But not in time . Man I love the way Julia Mills writes a book !!

This standalone addition to the Dragon Guard series features Callum O'Shea, the electric Dragon, who is young and irreverent. Hints of the mate he has yet to meet draw him to a cave, where a protective spell immobolizes him.
Kamdyn McGregor is determined to get her revenge against the false head of the McGregor Coven, but she's been thwarted at every turn. She has escaped the dungeon where he confined her and made it to the cave where she has her emergency cache. Then she hears boot steps, and releases her temporary spell, too late realizing her mistake. But before the spell can wear off, danger comes in the form of a demon in a girl’s body. And before Callum can burn off the spell his beautiful mate threw at him, she's taken by a cloud of black smoke.
I didn't enjoy this book as much as others in the series. It gets 3 stars.

Dragon With the Girl Tattoo: Dragon Guard Book 21

Once bitten, twice shy…

Lennox O’Lachtnáin, affectionately known as the Mad Bomber, would rather blow himself up than go on another blind date orchestrated by his well-meaning brethren. It was bad enough when they saw him crash and burn with the sexy doctor from Max’s Pride, but now they’ve all been witness to a string of failed first dates and botched meetings the likes of which no doubt have his ancestors turning in their proverbial graves. Fate was messing with him, BIG TIME, and he’d had enough. 

The best laid plans…

One drunken night with his brethren to drown his sorrows and Lenn has a new tattoo, his head’s beating like a bass drum, and there’s a raven-haired beauty in his bed who makes his heart race and his dragon send smoke signals. There’s only one problem…she won’t wake up. 

Cue the handcart to Hell…

Did Fate have to throw one more curve ball into his quest for a happily ever after? Well, of course She did. Did the Universe really have such a perverse sense of humor? Absolutely, no doubt. And who in the Heavens is this tiny platinum-haired woman who refuses to take no for an answer? Did she say something about a dating agency for paranormals? No way…time to get off the ride. 

His one night stand has left him with more than new ink. Lenn has no doubt the sexy siren is his mate, the one created just for him, the other half of his soul…but there’s no way in Heaven or Hell he’s mating one of her kind. Nope, it’s just not happening. Alone is better than eternity with…with…that. There’s only one answer…blow something up and have another beer.

The Universe does make mistakes. Fate will be denied…or will it?

Love the title, loved the story. I realize that I'm starting in the middle of this series but the title really drew me in. I enjoyed pretty much everything about this book, even LOL'd on occasion. My only real nitpicky issue was some errors in punctuation, which don't seem like much until you have to read and re-read a paragraph 3 times to make sense of it! I didn't get to know enough about the characters to be truly affected by everything that happened to them, but that's partly my fault for not reading the entire series. Then again, with this many books, I shouldn't have to read/acquire 20 previous books to find out what the Dragon Guard was! On Kindle it starts you at page 1 of the book. I think there's possibly more info in here, but not knowing to look for it, you don't. I will be reading more of these, definitely! 🐲🐺

* spoiler alert ** Lennox has been searching for his mate for as long as he can remember, but has yet to find her. Tessa is a Vaepanther who is not 100% accepted by either side of her family. Instant attraction blooms between the two, but when Lennox finds out about her dual nature, will he accept her? Can Tessa help Lennox overcome his prejudice?

Another Julia Mills hit! Definitely wanted to smack Lennox upside the head a couple of times, but the dragons in the book did that enough. Loved how Tessa accepted both her sides and was determined to do the right thing regardless who it went against. I hope Pearce gets a book soon and cannot wait for the next Dragon Guard book!

Claws, Class and a Whole Lotta Sass: Dragon Guard Book 20

Hiding in plain sight as the Pack Healer for a bunch of wolves was the perfect cover…

Using ancient magic to hide her true nature hadn’t always been easy, but it beat the hell outta being dead…then he waltzed in. Six foot-nine inches of pure male dragon, looking better than a man had a right to and making her dragoness wake from a long hibernation to spread her wings, not only rocked Dannika’s world, it almost turned it upside-down. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an evil as old as time and twice as deadly has reared its ugly head. Her ability to hide behind her patented sassy attitude may have kept Dannika safe for all these years, but now the future of all things paranormal is at stake and only she holds the key to its survival…well, at least part of it.

It was supposed to be a simple cross country trip, but then, he’d heard that somewhere before…
Since the death of his father almost a century ago, Wolfe McCallum’s life had been a series of incredible ups and devastating downs that made riding a roller coaster seem like a walk in the park. It also didn’t help that he freely admitted to being more stubborn than a mule and twice as contrary. He prided himself on being able to outlast, out argue, or just plain irritate anyone on the planet into giving up without raising a single claw or breaking a sweat…until he damn near tripped over the most beautiful woman in the world.

One look…one kiss…one extraordinary night…

Secrets unlocked, Destiny knocking at the door, and a Fate that will not be denied. Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times, be prepared for sudden stops, and by all means – buckle up. Fireworks are the least of your worries when one bull-headed dragon and his sassy-since-birth dragoness are faced with saving not only themselves, but everyone and everything they hold dear.

The Universe may not make mistakes, but She doesn’t make things easy either. It’s gonna take claws, class, and a whole lotta sass to save the day this time.

This standalone addition to the series features Wolfe, a relatively young member of the Dragon Guard. He and a group of friends from the Guard are assigned to protect a wolf shifter pack from rogues during treaty negotiations. But when he arrives at the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack border, he senses something he isn't ready for - his mate.

Danika Do Chara, Morning Star of the Crystal Clan of dragons, was adopted into the Blue Ridge pack at an early age following the death of her parents. Using powerful dragon magic, she cloaks what she is and has promised to reveal herself only after she finds and bonds with her mate. At that time, she and her mate will face off against The Darkness, a grave threat against the future of all living beings. But when Wolfe and the rest of the Guard arrive, he recognizes she is dragon, and begins his pursuit of his mate. Dani has no desire to start the clock of the prophecy, however, or to bond with the very large and arrogant stranger. But she will find that fate cannot be denied, for better or for worse.

This is an easy read, but is lacking in depth of character development and history. The ultimate battle with The Darkness was like a little town you drive through, blink and you miss it. Too much sass and not enough delivery for me. It gets 3.5 stars.

This is Brannoc and Annie's love story.
Annie had been abducted and tortured by the shifter-hating O'Baoill's.
Bran was the one to carry Annie out of that hellhole and to the safety of his clan so that she can begin to heal.
Annie is a bear shifter and needed to be among her kin to complete her healing.
From the moment he spotted her, Bran knew Annie was the one woman for him.
Now he must face being apart from his mate so that she can recuperate and become a full person again.
His reward is when they are eventually reunited to finally complete their mating.
Unfortunately, that takes a detour as the males of Annie's clan decide to mutiny and overthrow the female leadership.
Which in this case is Annie.
Brannoc cannot let this stand and will fight at his mate's side.

She and her sister are going to find a Christmas tree and come across the silver, coffin like box. Elsa can tell there is a man in there but the box is surrounded by evil and keeping him trapped. The man happens to be Quinn MacKenna who is an Enforcer of the Dragon Guardsmen. He and his friends were cursed by an evil witch and placed in the coffins. He slowly regains his memory.

Elsa's Aunt Geneva, a wicked gnome, comes for a visit and tries to get Elsa to come and stay with her. Quinn hears her talking and realizes she is the witch who cursed him. He yells at her to get away from his mate. Aunt Geneva takes off. Geneva wants Elsa's powers for herself. She comes back with her buggers and tries to get Elsa. With the magic between Quinn and Elsa powers, they manage to destroy Geneva and her buggers.
Elsa wants Quinn but she wants a partner, not someone who tells her what to do all the time. Ah, the complexities of love. Will they work things out? You'll have to read for yourselves to find out the outcome.

I have read all 17 books in this series, and can't wait for the next one!

Quinn is one of the lost Dragon Guard that has been considered dead for over 100 years.

Elsa is an Elf, with some powerful magic that she keeps hidden.

While out looking for a Christmas tree with her sister, Elsa kicks some snow and finds a silver coated coffin. Using her magic she is able to open it and finds a frozen "popsicle" man inside. Her sister wants nothing to do with the man, what if he is evil, but Elsa can't leave him, she feels she has to help him.

Quinn has been locked away, unable to communicate with his fellow brothers in the Dragon Guard. Once Elsa gets him safe and thawed, he is unable to remember who he is or what happened to him.

As Quinn begins to remember who he is and what happened, he also realizes that the aunt of his Elf (mate) is the one that locked him away.

A dragon and an elf, perfect for Christmas time. One might think an elf, really? But Julia Mills has written a wonderful storyline that has humor, magic, action, and of course the love of a mate.

The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars, is I wanted to read about Elsa getting to meet the other dragons and the Dragon Mating Ceremony. Always enjoy the preparation the Dragons go through to prepare.

Although you can read this book as a stand alone, I highly recommend reading the entire series.

Dragon Guard Book #16
TEARS FOR HER DRAGON by Julia Mills

This is book #16 of the Dragon Guard Series but can be read as a stand alone. This is Kyran O'Connor's story (the Black Dragon known as the Phantom) who was held a prisoner, tortured and his dragon magic taken away and had finally gotten free. He has been drawn to this lone cottage in the woods where Caitlin Brookes (a Banshee & blind) lives with her guard dog/companion, Duke. Kyran knows this woman is his mate and that she alone can repair his broken soul and broken heart. Caitlin has the foresight of death and has seen all about Kyran, and knows she is his mate. They are both seeking revenge for the wrongs done to them by the O'Baoill Hunter Family. Will Caitlin heal Kyran's shattered soul so they can be together or will revenge be Kryan's be all? I loved this story just as I love all the books in this series. It's a hot, sexy & sweet story. If you love Julia's books, you just love this one too.

Oh wow Miss Mills has outdone herself once again. This is an expanded version for the novella and did she add some explosive material.
One of our lost dragons, Kyran has vengeance towards that evil... woman... Eve, that has pain, heartache and Eve death to many shifters. His torture was most cruel as they severed this access to his black Dragon within him with black magic. Black magic was literally marking him.
Caitlin is blind and has Duke her dog for company. She knows her Dragon was outside watching over her. And as usual, with all our Alpha dragon males mats, she does not disappoint us. She goes and get her dragon mate.
Kyran is awesome, even through all his issues he wants the best for his mate. Always.
His anger and hate towards Eve and her family goes up more than a just a notch when he heard how they have affected Caitlin life.
We see a few of our all friends from the Blue Thunder Clan. And we see how justice is metered out not once but twice!
Once you get on these adventures with the Dragon Guard, you just can't wait for the next one to appear!!!
Can't wait Miss Mills.

Tears for her Dragon is part of Julia Mill's popular Dragon Guard series. I suggest for the highest emotional impact that you have read the previous books in the series. I have not read them all and while I enjoyed it, I'm almost certain I would have enjoyed this more had I done so.

Kyran is a Black Dragon and was held prisoner by the evil hunters who tortured him. He escaped with the help of his brethren but has vowed vengeance on Eve - the head hunter and the one who has been experimenting on shifters. However, he's drawn from his cave to a secluded house where he meets Caitlyn. Caitlyn is blind, her only companion a german shepherd named Duke. Caitlyn is also his mate and another victim of the evil hunters. Together, they can take vengeance on the one responsible for their pain.

There is a lot going on in this book and it is a fast book to read. If you've liked Ms. Mills other books in this series, than you will likely enjoy this. As with many of her books, I found that she moved a little too quickly for my tastes and I was often left confused as to who characters were and what their specific powers were. In fact, the pace was so quick that it seemed that events that happened that were supposed to lead to a confrontation or an issue were instead brushed aside. I didn't really feel an emotional connection to the characters and that made the climax difficult to feel anything more than indifference.

Her Mad Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 15)

One lone dragon pulled from his mountain to save the clan he’s sworn fealty to and the only family he’s ever known.

One Grand Priestess, the most magical witch of her time, the leader of her kind, and a survivor of torture.

Can their combined magic, all the love that they have and a faith in all they hold dear be enough to defeat the evil that’s sworn to destroy them all?

Only Destiny knows… And Fate Will Not Be Denied

Oh, my soul... Maddox is finally mated - but to who - I could NOT believe my eyes - Calysta - Mother of our own Kyra, Grand Priestess! I close my eyes and I can see him working on her nerves and she zaps him into a toad - buttttt darn did this old dragon change my mind.
I use to think of Maddox as "old" as he was the oldest at over 200 years - but darn if Julia didn't change my mind of this dragon being not "old" at all. He is actually HOT... And when it comes to his feisty mate - Maddox (Maddy to her) becomes putty in her hands. But to everyone else he is still grumpy - maybe not as grumpy, just a little bitty tamed.
And darn me is Calysta wasn't funny when she spoke to Kyra about Maddox and him being her mate and all. It was so hilarious how old-school her mom was to Kyra. But I loved it.
And then Maddox goes missing.... this was a little bit funny... but also not.

Each time Julia Mills write - she becomes better and better. Our world just explode with more information and intrigue. We are exposed to vile evil but also we are once again shown that love and goodness can triumph over evil. We get to know more of Kyran from the older Guard that went missing - but something is not okay.

And then Miss Julia says - we need to wait a bit to read his, Kyran's, story next - hope it's soon. Come one everyone - join us and learn how our grumpy Mad Dragon becomes tamed by the one Fate made for him. Its fun - trust me!!!

This is Bk #15 of the Dragon Guard Series and I just love the whole series-they get better and better each time!!

This is Mad Maddox, the 225 year old Dragon shifter who never thought he'd find a mate. He finds her and it's the Grand Priestess Calysta and he's not happy about it at first. He finally realizes Fate has a wicked sense of humor. Since it took him so long to accept it, he's got some groveling to do with Calysta but she loves him and doesn't give him too hard of a time. She has a nickname for him already-Doxie. You can imagine what the other Dragon shifters think of that name! They are made for each other and complement each other so well. Our Mad Maddox has become somewhat tamed!

Then there's the other part of the story of Maddox looking for his friend Kyran, the Black Dragon, of finding him, battling the O'Baoill twins and rescuing Kyran who is put into a deep sleep to heal and hope his mind isn't totally gone from his long incarceration by the O'Baoill's. Unfortunately, Eve O'Baoill had escaped so I'm sure we haven't seen the last of her.

I highly recommend this book and the whole series. If you love Dragons, you'll love the whole Dragon Guard series and I can't wait for the next story!!

I absolutely love this series as far as I am concerned each one is better than the last. In this one our grumpy old mad dragon Maddox finds his love in the Grand Priestess Calysta. As an older person I was happy to read of an older couple getting together. Now I know the dragons are a century old but I meant Calysta being older.

Maddox called Doxie by his team and Maddy by his mate has a never seen softer side which Calysta brings out. He found his team mate Kyran but something is wrong with him. So this story tells of Kyran and what happened to him as well as the continued back story with the hunters.

If you love hunky dragons and discovering soft sides to grumpy mad ragons then this is the story for you. Fate cannot be denied and this story cannot fail to be enjoyed by all.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I also love this series so much that I pre ordered this one too.

I received ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I love this series. I can't believe there are 15! Each and every one is unique. You fall in love with these beloved characters. Maddox is very old school and he's over 200 years old. Calysta is the Grand Priestess and what a pair! They totally belong together and they made me laugh and smile. Now this book comes more trouble. Tariq had children! Sick people! Adam and Eve...yeah so not good! Kyran was found but he's been messed with along with others by these siblings. Far worse than you can imagine. I really enjoyed the book and look forward as always til the next because Eve is still on the loose! I love their nicknames for each other so cute! Maddy and Callie. All swoony.

The Scars of Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 14)

The past is never just the past especially when it haunts your every thought and turns your dreams to nightmares. Forgiveness is the only path to peace. Unfortunately, that route is filled with the faces of the dead.

The dove brings love, peace and protection to the world. She has the power to restore what’s been lost and heal the wounds of the past. If only he would let her.  

A love created by the Universe was supposed to be enough. Their happily ever after had been woven in the fabric of time, but that was before the years of guilt and shame ate away at the heart of the man and his beast.

Can one woman’s faith in a love that conquers all erase the scars of her dragon?

This is Kellen & Olives story. I really loved it! She’s taking her Dragon Guards in a little bit of a different direction and I LIKE IT! It’s a little different but its not drastic so don’t freak out! I can’t wait to read more of her stories because this was awesome. I laughed and cried as usual. I loved Olive she’s so sweet but dammit she’s taking control and not taking no for an answer to talk to her mate. He accidentally hurts her when he was having a dream and after that he freaks and stays away. Well…she’s done with his pouting! Her dragon can’t help but love her for that. Kellen’s been through some horrible things! The antagonist in this book was horrendous and so needed to be stopped! I’m not giving anything away..well not much! There are lots of things interesting in this book…little teasers that I am sure we’ll read in future books. So...I RECOMMEND! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Wow, I knew Kellan was an amazing dragon guard, but his story broke my heart and made me falling love with him... Okay I love all of them, but can you help yourself around them hot alpha males that fight, love and life hard?
Olive is a dove shifter, born to bring peace. She knew her mate had a hard story with the scars as evidence. She wanted to bring peace to the one Fate has designed for her.
Kellan fights his demons and it's not easy. But suddenly his enemy is close and their world is in danger from evil.
Once again our dragons and their mates come together to defeat evil. Don't forget our feline friends as well.
Are we seeing some sparks between one of the witches and a certain mad dragon? Ooooh fun. There is also a surprise from an old friend.

Come join us on Kellan and Olive's journey that Fate have paved for them.

This book is about the scarred Guardsmen, Kellan. The backstory behind his scars was revealed, and it turns out Kellan was scarred both externally and internally. Kellan received his scars from an attack on a poor village, while he was trying to save the lives of three little girls. And thanks in part to the malice of one truly evil villain. Kellan was deeply impacted by those he couldn't save and blamed himself. Once his brethren tracked the man responsible they have been on the case ever since. His mate and Dove shifter, Olive has something to say about Kellan's scars and wants to help her mate finally heal from those old wounds. But to do so, the gang have to settle the score with the man responsible for Kellan's scars.There is another merging mating forming in this book, I think it got started in the previous book, but its mentioned a bit in this one. Olive has to break Kellan's defenses to get him to allow her in and allow her close. They have a mild courtship when compared to the other couples,except that one incident. Bring on the next one.

OMG I absolutely loved this story. Rory is such a bad ass so full of life and laughter to find him in a coma waiting to die from hellhound poisoning was traumatizing. Claire the phoenix matriarch is his mate and on her way to heal him but as luck would have it she never arrives to the lair as planned because an evil griffin who plans to be her mate as well kidnaps her. And that my friends is all I will reveal of the story. Just know that there is plenty of emotional ups and downs as well as action to be found within, of course there is also romance in these pages.

Do yourself a favor and grab a copy. Ms. Mills gets better with every story she writes and I am so glad that I was given an ARC for an honest review and hope to buy a copy as well.

Rory is the youngest dragon brother and something of a jokester . While he is an excellent fighter and Dragon Guard, he still tends not to take things to seriously, until he is bitten by a hellhound on his last mission, and unless some kind of miracle happens, he's going to be a dead dragon. Enter his miracle in the form of Claire a Phoenix (Sun Bird, Thunderbird) whose tears can heal anything including hellhound bites. Just one problem, a Griffin has decided Claire is his mate and he intervenes by sending his brother and a bunch of other griffins to bring her "home" , just as she's riding to heal Rory. Of course with Rory in a coma, the other Dragons set up a rescue plan to go and get Claire back, but Rory takes a turn for the worse, and a close family friend lends him some strength and we'll, your going to need to read the book to learn the rest !! I don't do spoilers !! Just know that this is one of the best of the 13 books in the series. There is action, angst, love, fear, and several new key characters are introduced. All while keeping beloved characters from the previous books front and center. While this is a stand alone book and you could read it without knowing anything from the previous books, you will enjoy it to its fullest by reading the other books in the series. Kudos Julia Mills 5 ''s . Can't wait for book 14, and anyone who says 13 is an unlucky number, should read this 13th book of this series !!

'Went to Hell … check. Saved my brother's mate … check. Saved a Guardsman we all thought was dead … unplanned, but hell yeah on the check. So now what? Oh yeah, lay here and be bored to death. HA! I mean, that's unless the hellhound poison coursing through my veins doesn't kill me first. Good times. Good times.' If you've been following the series, then you know Rory is the youngest of the O'Rourke boys; a great guardsman and fighter but also the practical joker who rarely takes things seriously. Until he winds up in a coma from the poison of a hellhound.
Claire is the phoenix matriarch. She's also Rory's fated mate. There's just one problem. She's trying to get to her mate and a Griffin has decided he wants Claire and her powerful abilities. Julia Mills has once again shown how fate plays a HUGE role in the lives of these Guardians and their lives.

Bk #13 continues from Bk #12 with Rory O'Reilly being bitten by a hellhound and it's poison is going through his system and he's paralyzed. There is only one person who can save him and that's Clair Featherstone, the Matriarch of the Clan of the Sun. This is the year that she will have to choose a mate-between good and evil. She has seen the evil Malik and will not be choosing him. She also has seen Rory and knows he is her mate, is a dragon and has chosen him. Rory also has had dreams of this gorgeous woman and knows she is his mate - if he lives to see her. Claire is on her way to save Rory and claim him has her mate. If it only was as simple as it sounds, but then it never is.

I just loved this story about Rory & Claire-the story pulls you in from the start until the finish! It has sexy romance, plenty of action and suspense. Besides who doesn't love Dragons and there are plenty of them!! Also enjoyed meeting some new friends. I so highly recommend this book and the whole series.
