Noel had been asked by three of the most renowned Guardsmen in history asked him for a favor. To go on a mission into what was referred to as the Frozen North. At six foot ten inches, he'd never before experienced anything he couldn't walk over .. Until now and he was freezing. But the man he was sent to look for was not only a personal friend of the mad dragon but the son of a god. During his trek he heard voices and came face to face with a sleigh being pulled down hill by what appeared to be a runaway reindeer trading vehement insults with an very grouchy elf knocking into him and leaving him dazed and unconscious.
You can tell by reading this storyline it was filled with the wonder of Christmas. Pure personalities full of a plethora of emotions, both good and bad, take control of these characters making parts of it like a comedy of errors leaving me chuckling out loud. Not to say there wasn't the expected angst and intrigue to keep the plot active, because there was. And don't let me forget to mention the fate of the Guardsman finding his mate, or vice versa as may be in this case. A truly joyful story you'll want for your collection.

There is constant delight in the latest Dragon Guard book, where scenes are not only fascinating but also highly entertaining. This standalone story takes place near Christmas, yet the premise can definitely be enjoyed any time of the year. I could not keep from laughing loudly at some of the more humorous moments, while the situations filled with emotion or sexy desire were just as captivating. Julia Mills makes DRAGON GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER imaginatively enchanting over and over again.

When Nowell was asked by several important Guardsmen to undertake a task, the dragon readily agreed and finds himself trudging through deep snow near the North Pole. Before the person whom he was sent to find can be located, he falls down and is then hit by a fast-moving sleigh pulled by a reindeer which has an elf driver. When Nowell wakes up, what he discovers is truly surprising.

Between the witty banter and unexpected happenings, I found DRAGON GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER to be cleverly inventive and so much fun. Julia Mills makes Nowell a very appealing dragon, while Scarlett is a lively reindeer with a sparkling personality. Toss in a cranky elf who never seems to be happy, and the book is certainly interesting. The many creative words spoken by these characters had me repeatedly chuckling, and the visuals also induced some big smiles. An engaging story on every page.

This quick read was an absolute delight. The two main characters were so much fun, and while one of the side characters kinda grated on my nerves, when the two main characters kept having the SAME reactions to him, it just made me laugh.

For such a short story, I was amazed how much story there was in here. Often short reads like this get distracted from whatever prompted someone to "go out and about" but not so with Nowell. Scarlet found herself in ways she never could have expected, she may have been last in line as a Reindeer for Santa's sleigh, but I felt she discovered that pulling his sleigh had not actually been her calling in the first place, which doubled the charm of the story for me.

Dragon in the Mist: Dragon Guard Series Book 26

One small voice in the dark…
One tortured plea for help…

Two hearts beating as one…
Two lives hanging in the balance… 

Three seconds to decide between life and death…
Three simple words that changed everything… 

“Please help me,” she cried.
Now, it’s out of the mist and into the fire.

Nice! Nice to see the first mention of the Beserkers. Uther is a long lost member of the Enforcers. Mara is the unwilling host to Thanatos. She is also Uther’s mate. What a combo!

Sweet, Loved it.

I'll never tire of reading about the Dragon Guards or the Beautiful language and verses they use towards the women they Love.

Talk about moving, literally the earth to get to your soulmate after 100 years to protect her. Wow!! Now that's what you call a Awesome Man!! Or Dragon!!

Uther, the Sky Dragon known as the Avenger hears the call from his mate from above, nothing, not even the black magic that trapped him will stop him or his Dragon, their mates call for help. From beneath the surface to a roaring volcano Uther is on a mission, Woo hoo.

Mara is the witch that has been trapped inside herself while the demon Thanatos uses her soul and body for evil. What he makes her do is horrible. Her mate is the only thing she hopes and prays will hear her call for help.

Another fantastic story you must grab, it will be well worth it.

Twinkle Twinkle Sassy Little Star: Dragon Guard Book 23

Back to the swamp. Back to the wolves. Back to her…

From the moment Grey laid eyes on Star he knew beyond all doubt she was the woman for him, but the sassy little she-wolf wouldn’t even give him the time of day. Then he was called home and all hopes of claiming his mate disappeared. Now, he’s heading back to the sweltering heat of the Florida wetlands and this time she will be his.

Fight the rogues. Fight the wizards. Fight the attraction she has for him…

Star thought the problems with her love life had flown out the window as she watched Grey fly off into the sunset, but now the sexy dragon is back and looking better than a man has a right to. Not only is he tall, dark and handsome, but he makes her wolf roll over and beg to be taken. What’s a girl to do when her happily ever after is staring her in the face but she’s not sure she deserves it?

The Florida Swamps have never been hotter. The wolves are under attack, the full moon is only days away and as if that wasn’t enough, out-of-control wildfires are closing in on all around them. Praying for a miracle won’t work. Fate and Destiny can’t help this time. Only the white-hot magic created by a dragon and his one true mate can save the day and Grey has no intention of taking no for an answer.

“Twinkle, twinkle, my sassy little Star. This dragon knows exactly who you are. And baby, I’m coming for you…”

After all, Fate Will Not Be Denied…or will it?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

These two are such a wonderful couple. Star still believes that she is the reason her entire pack was wiped out. Grey still grieves the disappearance of his brother. Neither one knew just how connected the two incidents actually were!

Dragon Guardsman Grey is dead set on going back to the swamps of Florida when he realized while there that the she wolf Star was his mate, doesn't matter that she keeps denying him and throwing him out of her head whenever he decides to visit it . He is also determined to find his younger brother Garrett who was abducted 80 years at the age of 13 by an evil demon and kept chained Goddess knows where wasting away.

Star can't deny the attraction she feels toward the hot Guardsman, or that they are true mates, but she will allow no man to take away her independence, or her mind on anything let alone a pushy dragonman. But Goddess when she sees him and finds out that he has been suffering all these years because of the same evil demon that killed her father and her pack, all bets are off. She will no longer fight the attraction or pain she feels when she sees his. Together they will defeat him and find Garrett.

A passion withheld for so long that sparks ignite between these two.

Twinkle Twinkle Sassy Little Star is a fast, easy and extremely enjoyable read. Julia Mills continues to entertain us with her wonderful stories. If this is the first of the Guardsmen's series you have read, I highly recommend reading all the rest, you will love them and all the characters you will meet.
Star is a sassy wolf who has lost all to the demons of the world and has come to rely on herself for what she needs.
Grey is a grey dragon who also has lost to the same demons. The fates have declared they are to be mated but Star is fighting it.
This story has a little of everything. Some violence, co-operation between species, and some smoking love scenes. Definitely a book for 18+. Happy Reading!!

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! 🐲🐺

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!

Tomorrow I will be attending the funeral of dear friend who suffered from Parkinson’s Disease. As a young man, he enjoyed running and entered many races in his area. That was taken from him by this disease. As he aged, he found other things that gave him pleasure. Then the pandemic hit, and he became isolated in his home. Finally he fell victim to Parkinson’s Dementia.

So many people have been isolated during this period. Do everything you can to keep them connected to the world at large.

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.

Brannoc and Annie have had a rocky start to their mating. He found her whilst she was being tortured by a group of warlocks. He had to allow her time to heal amongst her bear sloth. But when her sister turns up saying Annie needs his help, Brannoc is ready for action.

Annie can't believe how long it's taken her to heal. But just as it completes she is inundated with unwanted male attention. The males in the clan are trying to usurp the sloths matriarchal line and they are not taking NO as an answer! Brannoc arrives in time to help defend Annie but this is just the start of their problems!

Great addition to the series. It was very short and I felt it could easily have been added to the previous book as an added extra bonus. The action is initially paced over a very short space of time which may not suit all readers but I was a happy bunny!

A mystical being that can take her to heights never known with just words in her head, words and a voice she knows all to well from her erotic dreams of violet colored eyes.

Angus has waited for her for centuries, he tormented her dreams with a passion he hasn't known since his capture 101 years ago and now that he is finally free of his tormentors, he plans on taking her to the heavens and back.

Olivia was with another pack when she found a very old dragon who had been tortured with black magic & beatings for no reason.

The old dragon is from Drago’s, Kyran’s, Maddox’s ,Kayne’s & Quinn’s old unit before they were captured by the evil wizards & separated from each other.

Olivia knew right away but, couldn’t believe it; the old dragon is her mate & the 1 that she’s been dreaming of. Her dragon’s name which she finds out after her wakes up in the clinic is Angus MacLendon (that last name sounds familiar right).

Now though in order to find more about their story you’ll just have to read this book to find out.

This Dragon Guard series addition features a dragon who has spent the last century in captivity, being tortured daily. When he's found half buried in mud and mostly dead, no one knows who he is.
Olivia Kilbride has successfully negotiated a treaty between the Gaelach La'n Pack and the Wolfe Pack. They are out for a celebratory run when they discover an unconscious man covered in mud on pack land. Liv recognizes that his is the voice she's been hearing in her head, begging for her help. But more, he's her mate, and he's dying.
This book captured and held my attention. The link between Liv and Angus was strong and grew quickly as his consciousness and strength returned. It was unusual that the torture he'd endured for so long didn't impact his behavior and head space more than it did, his focus stayed on his mate. I enjoyed their story, which can standalone.

Guarding Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 17)

Well, she takes him home and nurses him back to health, of course.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

She’s an elf. He’s a dragon. Elsa frees him from his dark magical prison that’s left him frozen for years. She knows he’s special therefore she helps him. Elsa is powerful but keeps her magic locked up tight because she fears it a little. Quinn is one of the lost Guardman Enforcers. When he’s rescued by a beautiful elf he’s very confused and has no memory and his dragon isn’t coming forth. He knows she’s special to him but cant quite remember why. After seeing a woman who appears to be part of Elsa’s family it all comes back and this is the woman who put him and his brethren in magical prisons. Is Elsa and her magic the key to healing his Dragon? Will they be able to defend themselves once that evil gnome comes for Elsa’s magic?

A freakin elf?! How cool is that, y’all? I LOVED Elsa and Quinn. She is a real spitfire and is the youngest and is done with all her sisters teasing her and annoying her. She wants an adventure that isn’t where her siblings are. Well…she sorta gets that adventure in the form of a dragon mate in Quinn. She’s very sweet and funny and beautiful! A big warm heart to boot. Quinn is just adorable and sexy! He’s sweet and protective but understands what Elsa needs in a mate. Not someone who tells her what to do but is a partner as well. They worked so well together. It’s a Christmas tale that will make your laugh and lighten your heart. Loved the book! I will say it was a shame that his brethren weren’t able to taste that revenge on that horrible woman.

This is book #17 of the awesome Dragon Guard series.
Elsa O'Leary and her family live in the Artic Circle. She is a very special Elf that has special powers which she locks into herself as she is a little afraid of it. 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 just love this series and each one gets better than the last one. This book was no exception and I highly recommend it and the whole series. Who wouldn't love books with dragons and all kinds of magical beings! This has action, suspense and some real belly laughs and of course hot romance! I'm eagerly waiting for the next one.

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.

Another lost Guardsman is found as a mansicle in a silver coffin.

Elsa, a elf & her sister Mona were out getting a tree for Christmas for their mom when Elsa found the silver coffin & decided to open it. With her elven magic of course & in there she not only finds a mansicle but, also her mate.

Quinn once he was thawed out at 1st didn’t know his name but what he did know was that he immediately felt something for Elsa.

& as the days go by with Elsa’s family taking care of him to get well enough to remember his name & how he got there he also realizes that Elsa is his mate.

But, to find out more you’ll have to read the book.

Tears for Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Series Book 16)

Escaped from hell on earth, lost and alone, a wail in the night calls to not only his beast but also his heart. Finding this tortured woman is all that matters.

On the run, hiding in plain sight, the icy fingers of doom invade her soul. The pull of the world she fled tears at the fiber of her being.

Lovers from different worlds, fighting a common enemy, thrown together by the Reaper himself, helpless but to do as he bids.

Can these two souls find peace when the Devil himself is demanding his due?

Another awesome book in The Dragon Guard series. I have read all of them and with each one I think it's my favorite until the next one comes out.
Kyrian is a black dragon who was kidnapped and tortured for centuries. While bidding his time to exact revenge he finds his fated one in a Caitlin a gypsy/banshee who had been blinded and wants revenge on the one responsible.
This is a fantastic story of fated mates coming together and facing obstacles and learning to trust each other and the ones that love them.
Can they find their hea? Will Kyrian find his way back to the Guardsmen? Will they get their revenge? All this will unfold as you are drawn into this story that will make you laugh and cry.

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.
