Golden Fire Clan (Dragon Guard Series Book 9): Her Dragon’s Soul

He’d seen the golden highlights of her strawberry-blonde hair glistening in the firelight and it was obvious. When the seductively soft scent of Angel’s trumpets with their light lemony overtones had invaded his senses, Liam Drennan just knew she was the one the Universe had made for him and him alone.

The few times he’d decided to go to her something had pushed him away, made it impossible for him to get near her. He’d felt the mating call, even sensed the beginning of the mating bond, but something dark almost evil within her had shut it down and denied him access to his mate. There was something about Hannah McKennon that didn’t add up. 

Now, all Liam had to do was figure out how to tell his brethren’s mate that her best friend had something evil living inside her. Who was he kidding? There was no way this was going to end well for anyone involved.

Oh great! Just another day in paradise.

I have to admit by far that this is my favorite Dragon series I have ever read. I find myself waiting for the next book in each series and end up going back and rereading all the previous books to make sure I did not miss anything that will be important in the new book.

While this book can be read as a standalone I highly suggest you start from the beginning because all of the characters and themes continue through each progressive book. Not to mention that you will enjoy the series even more when you know what has been going on from the beginning.

This is the story of Liam and Hannah. A former witch hiding with the most evil clan there can be. Only through the strength of the mating bond, Hannah's family, and the Blue Dragon Thunder Clan can they save Hannah and Liam's very souls. I am amazed at the colors of the dragons that still surface. This is a great book and a nice continuation in the series which gives you more more information about the upcoming doom they all must fight together.

I am happy to see the younger members of the Golden Fire Clan slowly begin to find their mates but I still and waiting on pins and needles for the rest of the Blue Thunder Dragon Clan to begin finding their mates. And as normal regal Max is there to lend a hand and bring hope that maybe we will get to see his story in the future. But slowly new members are being added to the ever-growing list of who is next for their book.... One thing for sure is that this series can go on for a very very long time

Liam has to tell his best friend Jace and his mate Melanie that his own mate, Hannah is possessed by some kind of dark spirit, force. He has known that Hannah was hit mate since they rescued Melanie from her deranged grandfather at the end of the last book and he has also known their was something off with his mate. As soon as he tells Jace and Melanie the rest of the dragon guard know too. Apparently he and Jace are not good at keeping their mind speak just between the two of them. So, the whole Kira, Royce, Rory and the gang gather up to try and help Hannah. Hannah wakes up on a cliff with remnants of spell she doesn't remember casting, she knows she has lost time again and she needs to tell someone. She decides to tell her mother, who tells her they will figure it out and to go tell her mate. Liam is snatched up by Cleland, the grand draoi of the Dorcha-also known as Melanie's grandfather. Cleland wants to put transfer the demon inside of Hannah into Liam, but the calvary arrives before the switch occurs. An exorcism is done to rid Hannah of the demon, then she and Liam have their mating ceremony. Great book, part of a great series- but this was too easy. Their were more twists in the other story and this was very straight to the point. Are they ever gonna find Kira's mom, the suspense is getting to me, their so close to her and keep walking on by, can't take it

Julia Mills rocks. I loved this adventure with Liam and Hannah. They met after Hannah's family was rescued from their coven,which was run by Cleland,not so nice dark magic wizard... evil man. Not to mention that Hannah and her family are powerful white witches that had to hide this fact, or so they thought.
Liam suspect that everything is not okay with Hannah. And that Cleland had planted something dark inside of her.
As he explains to Melanie and Jace that 1. Hannah's his mate and 2. His suspicions. You know there are very upset feelings
Luckily they have Royce and Kyra on their side, listening to their thoughts and coming to their rescue.
Plans were made and then all then just went wrong.
But when love and all this good stands up against evil, be sure that there will be a rescue. In our case it involves hot dragon shifters and a few white witches fighting the evil Wizard.
But we also learn a few surprise... and not all good. And now Julia makes me Wat the next book right now... Please.
P.S watch out for Rain who is very mysterious. .. I would love to get to know him..

I REALLY like this series!!! It is very well written, and it keeps my attention for the most part. The reason for the 4 stars is because I find myself (I'm still reading the series I'm on book 9 now) Skipping some parts. For example the intimates scenes seem to be really drawn out, and while I love a good love scene these just feel too drawn out and the same each time. Then there is telling of how the mating ritual goes or other small things like that where I feel like it's the same as the last book just with different colors. I'm not saying that's bad, especially when the author is producing these are stand alone's as you would need all of this then, I'm just am hoping that these facets of the books can be told in a different, but still interesting way. For the most part this series definitely holds my attention and makes me want to find out what happens next in the book as well as what happens to the other characters that have captured my attention (some more than others, but still want to know).

I love this series! Jace started off as a side character in the series and has gradually grown into his own with this book, "Her Dragon's Heart." The youngest of the Dragon Guard, the bronze dragon has known who Melonie was for quite some time, keeping watch over her thinking she's human. Melanie, on the other hand, is a witch trying to keep hidden in the human world at the hospital from her grandfather who has turned evil from his quest for power. Even though this book is shorter than some of her previous ones, there is no less adventure or romance in it's delivery. I get the same thrill each time I read one of Julia Mills Dragon Guard books knowing that "There are no coincidences, The Universe does not make mistakes and Fate will not be denied."

I'm so upset!! They were this close to where and who have Kyra's mom,ugh. They don't seem to be very concerned-well I am. They abducted her what 2,3 books ago? I want somebody to figure it out already!!! I know everybody wants to find their mate, but come on now.
This book is about Jace and his mate, Melanie. He meets her at while on guard duty at the hospital where Sam and Charlie work, and like all the other guardsmen he knew she was his fated mate. He took his sweet time in approaching her and trying to get to know her. But they develop a routine of talking and eating together and just getting to know each other.
Next thing, he overhears a strange phone call between Melanie and her grandfather, where some supernatural occurrences go on. Then, their mating link disappears and he can't get a fix on her. So, like a guy he freaks out and goes looking for her. He can't do it alone, so his best friend Liam goes with him. They finally the call in the calvary to aid in the search and tells about the crazy call.
Royce tears poor Jace a new one, but I'm like you can't throw stones-cuz you way then messed up when you realized Kyra was your mate and witch. He acted like a total ass- so cut Jace a break.
Melanie has been abducted by her crazy grandfather, whom she ran away from when she was kid. She thinks he is going to sacrifice her to get her powers and tries to cook up another escape plan with help from the people who helped her escape years ago. Well, grandfather throws that plan out the window and tries to marry Melanie to male witch in the group to bind her to the coven so she can no longer get away.
Before that happens Jace, Max, Kellan, Rory and the rest of the guardsmen break up the nuptials and get Melanie out of there. Jace reveals his big secret, tells her they are fated mates and you know the rest.

This was much shorter than the other Dragon Guard series. However, that doesnt take away from the story at all! I've loved Jace's character from the other books. He's started out small and had gotten a bigger role as the books go along. He's the youngest of the Dragon Guards. He's a bronze dragon and is oh so sweet. Too cute and sexy...wait...can they be both cute and sexy? Oh yes they can! He's known who his mate is for awhile and has watched over her and has gotten to know Melanie Whelan a nurse who works at the hospital. She appears human but she is nothing but. She's a witch in hiding and has wanted to live a normal life after living a horrific life with her Grandfather. He's NOT a nice man. Craves power...thing is he's not always been that way. He's been the loving Grandfather years ago when she was little and just craved power and it changed him. Jace and Melanie are very drawn to each other...he knows why but he's wanting to give her time and also trying to get up the nerve to tell her everything. However, before he can do that she is kidnapped by her Grandfathers minions. Ha...I said minions which thats what they are. He wants her power sooo bad but has come up with a detestable way of getting it without sacrificing her which is whats hes done previously with others. Now that his mate has been kidnapped he calls on his fellow guardsmen and Kyra to help find her. Love love Kyra. LOL. Melanie has sensed Jace but not sure what it means but tries to talk to him durng her captivity hoping he hears her. Which he does as he gets closer to her. Once she finds out he's a dragon...she passed out lol. Not so much because of that but after everything its taken its toll and hello the man she loves is a dragon. It was a bit much for her! He he. Anyways....their love wont be denied and neither will these wonderful mates Jace and Melanie. He's so romantic and sweet. Loved the book. Guess who finds their mate???????? Oh yeah Liam! I feel so bad for Melanie's childhood best friend Hannah. Her Grandfather put something so very evil in her. I cant WAIT for the next book! I also can't wait to see mates for the Blue dragons Rian and Rory....they are so funny and hot! Secondary characters once again are so awesome and just make the book(s) better in this series.

I love this series and this installment did not disappoint. I love how each book has a unique way of telling the love story.

Charlie witnessed an unbelievable site, a woman turning into a dragon. She pushed away everyone trying to figure this new reality.

Aaron knew Charlie was his mate the moment he saw her in the hospital. He had to have patience for her to reconcile this new reality and come to her mate on her terms.

But all is not what it seems with Charlie, a secret that only Aaron can help her with.

There is also information about Kyra's mother and the traitor.

I loved the relationship between Aaron and Charlie, there was action and passion.

Read these books in order, the richness of the story is more complete when you have the background of the other stories.

A great read, these books just keep getting better!

“Only for Her Dragon” Book #6 (Dragon Guard Series) Julia Mills

I think this may be my favorite book in the series. I know I know I probably have said it about all of them. Julia’s Dragon Guard Series is absolutely fantastic what can I say. I live for her next release.
Only for Her Dragon was a little lighter read. She had the perfect mix of action, humor and romance. Aaron the last bachelor of the guardsmen swore he would never take a mate. His teasing was brutal towards his brethren when they found their mates. Well Karma is a you know what. Aaron fell hard for Dr. Charlene (Charlie) Gallagher, who happened to be Sam’s (Lance’s mate) best friend. The first kiss and he was a goner but then again so was Charlie.
Charlie was with Aaron at Devon’s and Anya’s mating ceremony when a distress call went out by Aaron’s brethren through their mental link he had to leave Charlie to see what happened. Before he left he told her to go back inside. Well Charlie doesn’t take orders from anyone. So she followed Aaron staying far enough behind she thought. What she came upon put her in a state of shock among other things. Anya was going through her first transition from human form to her dragon. The entire group was there and Devon was going crazy. Anya was a miracle. The only female dragon known to still exist.
Charlie turned and started running and didn’t look back. For 15 days she went through a gamut of emotions all circling back to the incident and the most gorgeous guy she’s ever met. She was angry, she was hurt that her best friend never told her, she cried, she was confused, and she thought she was going crazy. Charlie would not take Sam’s calls and she didn’t want to see anyone. Finally she gave in and met with Sam. After lots and lots of questions, which Sam tried the best she could to answer Charlie still couldn’t wrap it all around her head. The hunk of her dreams was a dragon. She just needed time to process this.
After having a heart to heart with Aaron things seemed to be going better, until their first romantic encounter and Aaron noticed the marking on Charlie’s back. While rubbing her back to ease her discomfort he felt something move. After closer examination and entering her mind he discovered his mate had magic within her. Good white magic. He knew he would have to talk to Charlie about this and he wanted her to go with him to see Siobhan the Guardsmen’s healer and mother to all and Kyra. Between the two of them they should be able to figure her magic out and what the markings mean.
Turns out Charlie has a dream after meeting with Kyra and Siobhan and she finds out what the markings are and where her magic comes from. My absolutely favorite line from this read is “Aaron, get your dragon ass in here? I’m a freakin Fairy!” I never laughed so hard in my life. You have to read the story this is just so like Charlie and her mouth.
Even though this read was a little lighter Julia socks it to you in the Epilogue. OMG I totally lost it towards the end. In the beginning they are capturing Andrew (I’ll tell you a little secret, from book #1 or maybe #2 I’ve had a secret desire that Andrew could be reformed. Yes he was a douche but think about it he was captured and around evil for a long time, his revenge and hate I think was just a way of his survival. Okay so I’m delusional). What Julia teases at the end of the epilogue will have you gasping. Who is this mystery woman and what will ultimately happen to Andrew? That’s all I’m saying. I can’t wait for the next release. I’m also curious when we’ll find out more about Sydney’s abilities, Will we see a mate for Max hmmm what other mischief can we get those men into. LOL 5*

This is the fifth book in the Dragon Guard Series and although each can be read as a standalone, there is an underlying plot that runs though each book and you will see characters from previous books interacting in the current one. Beside, once you start the series, you'll want to continue all the way through. They're just addictive. This book is about Devon and Anya, both powerful and special in their own right. Devon, being the white dragon of the clan, hold the favor of night and day, with loyalty and strength of will being the two biggest assets. Julia Mills has given us we expect from her Dragon Guard and his mate without all the major battles this time. But there's more at play and she's given us the build up.

The one thing you know for sure when you read a book by Julia Mills is you will get the sweetest love story imaginable. Devon and Anya's story is no exception. Anya is in a coma in the hospital and no one knows why or how it happened or who she is. Devon knows she is his mate when he finds her but doesn't even know her name. This story has alot of back story to it and does get a little confusing but that would be my only complaint if I were to voice one. Character development for the main characters is amazing and you become totally engulfed in their story. As they work towards their HEA Devon is awed by his luck in who is mate is and how he makes her feel. This story has suspense and intrigue and love to keep you turning pages until the end. You will not be disappointed in this book or any other work by Julia Mills.

This is my favorite Dragon Guard book yet. Julia’s books just keep getting better & better.

Devon is a rare white dragon shifter & part of the Dragon Guard. One day, while visiting the hospital, he feels the pull of The One The Universe Created Just For Him. Unfortunately, she is a patient in the hospital & she is in a coma, but he can hear her calling out. He sits with her every day while she in unconscious, talking to her & taking over more & more of her care, sure in the knowledge that she knows he is there. He doesn’t know her name but he knows she was made for him. He knows she is special because not only is she made for him but they are already able to mind speak, something that is not usually possible until the after the mating ceremony.

“The universe made one astonishing woman for each dragon shifter… and only him. She completed him and the dragon within in every way possible. A dragon’s mate brought light to their soul and love to their life. But she was so much more. It was reflected in every person…dragon, mate, or human…that came into contact with her. They were drawn to her, as she was the light that would fill their darkness.”

Anya Sloane is in a fog. Occasionally that fog lessens and she cries out for help. She hears someone answer her from far away. Eventually it is decided that the best thing for her is to move her to Devon’s mothers’ (Siobhan is the healer for the clan) cottage. Finally she awakens, unsure where she is but knowing she is safe. The harder she tries to remember things the farther away they go

I have read and followed all of Julia's Dragon Guardsmen and Devon's story was an unexpected one! Each one can be read as a standalone but there are characters that will be in the story that were introduced in previous books. So I do suggest reading them all in order but it isn't necessary. To be honest once you read one you will want to read them all anyways *wink*

As hot as these books are and can be, I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of this book. Not so quick to bed, but the love and angst were strong and pulled me in. I think having it drawn out made me love Devon and Anya more. They came close to Aidan & Grace, and those who know me knows that I LOVED Aidan! Devon is so compassionate, strong and it is very evident that him and Anya were meant to be.

Another aspect that I loved was learning more about the clan and their history. We always have some kind of a history lesson in each book but I finally see everything coming together...well almost. There are still some things to revealed I am sure, but I feel more and more that we are coming to a point in the series where a bigger picture will be presented.

As much as I loved the pace I kept waiting. Waiting for the "OMG" moment and boy did I get it!! I must have read the last few chapters at record speed because I was on the edge of my seat wondering what the hell was happening and thought my heart was going to stop. Julia certainly tugged on some of my emotions there!

And lets not forget the preview into her next book at the end! This is a preview that tops all of her other previews. Things are about to go crazy!!!

Haunted By Her Dragon, the third of the Dragon Guard series, showcases Julia Mills awesome 'wordcrafting'.

This novel features Lance Kavanaugh (golden dragon shifter) and Dr. Samantha Malone (surgical resident). Mills seamlessly builds this story out of "Her Dragon's Fire" which flowed just as brilliantly from "Her Dragon To Slay", but the books also stand alone. Readers won't get lost if they venture into the series out of order as Mills provides a brief recap of the previous action.

When Lance saved Sam from a kidnapper known as 'The Auctioneer' (aka Mr. A) in "Fire", he recognized his mate. Because the Dragon Guard have a traitor to the clan as well as murderous black mages and hunters out to eradicate the dragon clans, Lance decided to wait to approach Sam and to watch his One from a distance. Sam barely met her rescuer, but feels a haunting yet protective presence hovering around her. However, the traitor appears in Sam's life and threatens her safety and that of her favorite surgical patient, six-year-old Sydney, forcing Lance out of the background.

The lovely doctor, the adorable little girl, and a powerful witch are swept into the ongoing battle. The Guard and their were-panther allies step up their game as mysteries begin to surface and special significance of new characters arise while the action explodes.

Mills skillfully weaves the skeins of this dragon tapestry. She spins out a tale that further builds a world with a rich and ancient culture struggling to survive in a modern world. The colorful story reveals more on the dragon community (lair) and its history and customs. Vivid characters, lively interaction, and deft dialogue mesh with carefully crafted descriptions to create a book readers can't put down. Mills also treats fans to an in-depth look in to the hunter/mage Alliance's maniacal plans through Andrew's eyes. These POV pages allow readers an insight into the Dragon Guard enemies making them more than static characters that simply engage in battles. No threads tangle in this total telling.

Best of all while winding this story to its conclusion, readers aren't left unsatisfied with a cliffhanger ending. However, Mills masterfully alludes to future story twists in a clever epilogue that leaves them eagerly and impatiently waiting for Book Four.

Samantha had wound up in the foster care system when her parents died. She was one of the lucky ones, winding up with Momma Maybelle (the best foster mom in the world). Now she's an inspiring surgeon wanting to eventually specialize in children and the elderly. Seven months ago, she had been abducted from the hospital parking lot and carried off to the middle of nowhere. It had been one of the most terrifying experiences in her life. Luckily for her, she had a guardian - not angel - who wound up making sure she was safe. As a matter of fact, she always felt him watching her. Sam never saw him, she could only feel him, but she knew deep inside he would keep her safe and that was comforting.
Lance continued to keep watch over Samantha after she was rescued. They were still searching for the traitor who'd hurt both Kyndel and Grace. Then there was the "Auctioneer" who seemed to be always on the fringes, not to mention the ever-present threat of hunters and wizards to his clan. He knew the Universe didn't make mistakes, but he couldn't justify bringing her into the clan yet. And if Andrew found out she was his mate, Heavens knew he would mess with her like he did with the mates of the other Guards.
Have you been following the Dragon Guard Series? This is the third book and the story between Samantha and Lance. Julia Mills has the underlying plot running through all the books connecting them yet each can be read as a stand alone. Although, if you're like me, you want that back history which makes each story flow together beautifully. Her characters are all flawed in one way or another, but strong in personality and convictions. If you're into dragons, fated mates and HEA, you won't be disappointed. This is another terrific addition.

King Outta Water (Dragon Guard Book 40)

Whether he’s up to his armpits in alligators or traipsing around the world, Rene Malveaux always protects his Queen.
A whole lotta dead Shifters and more on the way may not sound like the serenade for a love story to anyone else, but this is the Big Easy, Baby. And Rene’s always done everything the hard way. Undercover for the Dragon Protection Agency, this Guardsman, aka King ’cause his ego could fill the Superdome, is out to stop the body count from rising while protecting the love of his life… whether she wants him to or not.


Pricilla DeClouette’s been a force to be reckoned with since she was knee-high to a grasshopper…thank the Heavens some things never change.

Bossy, stubborn, and hot as homemade sin, Cilla fell in love with his scaly behind when they were just kids. And, all this time later, not one damn thing has changed. Year after year, she resisted every wand-waving, fanged-tooth, fur-wearing Tom, Dick, and Hairy who dared to swagger to her door, just waitin’ for the day her Dragon would return.
Finally, he’s back and dammit it to hell if he don’t look good enough to eat. All she has to do is admit how she feels, then pray he can do the same. Bickerin’ and sassin’ hasn’t worked so far. Time for a new plan. Cilla’s more than ready for happily ever after with all the trimmings and might just be willing to swallow her pride to get it.

Sounds easy, right? After all, she’s the Voodoo Queen of the great state of Louisiana.
Yeah. Whatever. That and $7.50 will get her a Happy Hour Hurricane.

Better to focus on the shitstorm brewing in her own backyard than what Fate and Destiny have cooked up. Those two broads haven’t gotten it right so far. What makes Cilla think they will now? Time to take matters into her own hands. All she’s gotta do is find a few extra minutes between talking to the Spirits of the recently deceased and keepin’ her momma from hexin’ the whole damned town.

It’s ‘standing room only’ in the morgue with a Shifter war brewing just outside the door.
Love’s just gonna have to wait.
Ain’t no-body gonna burn down her city. Even if she has to call her Daddy the Demon to smite a few fur-covered asses.

Let the good times roll, the most explosive couple NOLA’s ever seen is finally back together. Let’s just pray they stay that way…and don’t kill each other in the process.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
Nice!

The author has done it again, grabbed hold of yet another mythology and made it her own. I did have to laugh at the couple. Being honest however, having such a large amount of teasing of other books was off putting. 40% was too much for me.

Burn Dragon Burn: Lick of Fire (Dragon Guard Series Book 34)

The Dragon Protection Agency- Shiny badges, rock-hard scales, and a whole lotta fire they know how to use.

Solving murders and bringing bad guys to justice was all Nat ever wanted to do. She couldn’t imagine being anything but a Homicide Detective. It was who she was. What she could use her Gift for. Her absolute obsession.

Then he walked into the Precinct…

Tall, handsome as the Devil and hotter than homemade sin, Special Agent Rafe O’Rhordan was everything she never wanted and the one thing she couldn’t live without – a man strong enough to corral her and secure enough in himself to resist the temptation.

Battle after battle, war after war, saving the injured, fighting for justice, and freeing the imprisoned had become his life. Being a founding member of the Dragon Protection Agency – DPA for short – had kept him busy, fulfilled, and always on the move for the last few decades. He and his Brethren were a well-tuned machine no bad guy could escape.

Then he met her and everything changed…

Headstrong, smarter than a whip, and more gorgeous than any woman he’d ever set eyes on, Detective Donatella Hale was the light of his soul and a pain in his backside – a woman strong enough to stand up to him and soft enough to love for eternity.

But love and forever will have to wait. They have a killer to catch…

Six murders in eighteen months. No clues except the bodies he leaves behind, the murderer all the papers called the Yellow Ribbon Ripper is due to strike again, but who will be the next victim? Where will he leave the body?

The clock is ticking.

The killer is on the hunt.

Can Nat see where he is?

Can Rafe blaze the trail in time?

Fate Will Not Be Denied…but then again, She’s never been chased by a serial killer.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Wow! This is definitely different from all the rest. Talk about hidden bloodlines and some serious power. Rafe and his friends are a wonderful change of pace. BTW, are we ever going to get Max’s story?

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Wonderful. This is one of those stories that I could have sworn I read earlier. Now that I’m finished, no I hadn’t! I love the characters and all their flaws. I absolutely adore how the writer grabs from any and every mythology out there for her characters. This pairing is slightly older than the normal but that just makes it better.
