Dragon Her Home: 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.

I swear I am never going to get caught up on the dragon series as fast as Julia writes them.

Excellent addition to both the dragon series and PDA. Leave it to Gerri to arrange a meeting and not give much details on your mate. Sometimes I think it's like finding a needle in a dragons lair.

The couple in the book are just perfect for each other. Not sure if its because they are so different, or so similar..lol...They bring the perfect mix of love and excitement to the story.

Until Next Time... Tabi

This book held my attention throughout. It took me a bit to figure out what all was happening as it is not one of the more typical Gerri Wilder Paranormal Dating Agency stories started by Milly Taiden. Books also written by other authors with their own spin on Gerri which is the case with this book. Anyhow, it was a slow start for me that picked up speed with lots of action and a bit of a twist in the story. I can't wait to read Sable's story which is one of the Dragon Guard series by Mills. I enjoyed this book so much I'm going to sit and read several of the books in this series

As her previous books and contributions to the PDA Universe I found Julia Mills' latest just as enticing. Adding the Dragon Guardians has been a seamless connection through Gerri Wilder's character as well as the introduction of more paranormal entities for their mates. I loved the Kitsune, Annika. She was a powerhouse to rival any of the dragons and a perfect match for hers. Just as Milly Taiden's female's, Julia Mills writes a strong feminine character that can handle her own and still blend her mate to her.

I LOVED this story! Though I have to admit, I have no idea what an Arctsune is, and google didn’t help, so I was a teensy bit frustrated by that. I like to visualize what the shifter shifts into. But the story described her well, and I was REALLY pleased that the conversations were easy to follow, didn’t have as much inner monologue/talking to the reader as some of her other stories. There was so much action, suspense, unexpected twists, and Sable! I can’t wait to read more about this family!

MacAllen Clan: She Thinks My Dragon’s Sexy (Dragon Guard #35)

Fate Will Not be Denied, but if you happen to be a Gambler, the safe bets always on a Dragon and his Mate.

Sure, it was hotter than hell and drier than a popcorn fart, but it was home. Not just a place on the map, but in her heart where it really mattered.

Coming back to West Texas for Elle Burntwing was a mixed bag of tricks. Sure, it was where she’d grown up, where she’d had her first beer, her first kiss, ridden her first horse, and raised all kinds of hell…but it was also where her family had tragically and with no explanation been taken from her.

Stepping back on the sandy soil of home, the plan was simple (1) get her client outta hot water, (2) find the person responsible for her family’s murder, and keep herself from falling in love with a Dragon. No worries, right?

Family meant everything. It was all he’d ever known, and as the oldest son of an oldest son and a Guardsman, Gage took his job as Protector very seriously, even though his four younger brothers knew every one of his buttons to push and laughed as they did it.

Seeing her walking into the Courthouse changed everything. With her in his arms, he saw forever. All he had to do was slay a centuries old flying menace and convince the One the Universe made for him that he wasn’t an arrogant, know-it-all Dragon, but instead, her One and Only Mate. Piece of cake, right? 

With more on the line than his love life and the scales covering his backside, Gage MacAllen is about to learn the true meaning of ‘Destiny will always find a way’.

Can he thaw out in time to join the battle?

Will she save the day without him?

Will the Fanatical Feathered Freak finally be brought to justice?

And…who in all that’s holy is the Dragon trapped in the ice?

Only the Great Creator and the Universe know the answers, and as usual, neither one is talking. So, Take a load off, Grab a cold one, and Get ready for one Helluva story.

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.

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?

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 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.

This was so different from all the other stories. The beginning truly grabbed my attention and never let go. It’s a little difficult to figure out what to say without giving things away. So let me just say that you are going to love it!

Purrfectly Caught by C.D. Gorri

I’ve been waiting to get this one. I loved the couple, and Gerri’s reaction to what was going on was absolutely priceless. What more could you want?

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.

Kiss of Her Dragon (Dragon Guard Book 19)

Love makes any man do crazy things but when you’re a century old Dragon Guardsman and your mate is a bear shifter with a future blessed by Destiny crazy doesn’t begin to cover what the Universe has in store for you.

One small rescue mission will turn into a fight for his life with the Fate of the world hanging in the balance and the Hope of an entire species resting squarely on his shoulders. Just another day in the life of the Dragon Guard’s resident geek.

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!

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

I read this awhile ago and so excited to buy and re-read again. I love this freakin series. I'm not a spoiler. I try not to anyways. I just LOVED these 2 characters. They are sweet and protective and whoa hawt too! Brannoc and Annie yay! Its really different how things operated in a bear clan vs. dragon guard. Brannoc rescued Annie from that hell and she recovered but Brannoc gave her time. They knew they were mates. She was waiting for him to claim her. Heh thats all I'll say. *zips lips* I will say I LOVED their story.
Dragon kisses, bear hugs and evil wizards…Love should come with hazard pay.

I absolutely loved this story!

Olivia is a very sassy she wolf, alpha in her own right. Sister to the alpha of her pack Marrok she never thought her wolf would submit to any other, until she found the bedraggled man in the forest, her mate. But he is not a wolf what then? 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.

Fabulous story full of love and passion.

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.

I love the stories of the lost brethren. Angus and Olivia's story is no different.

Angus has been held for a hundred years being tortured by a sect of traitorous wolves.

Olivia had been running in the woods as her wolf, when she heard the voice from her dreams begging for her aide.

Together their love is unstoppable.

I like how this shows the wolves' mating ceremony, but I miss the dragons.

It was a great, fast read. A great compliment to the series.
