Final Thoughts

When you finish one book series, have you ever just sat back and struggled to decide what to read next? I found myself in that situation recently and started thinking about “Go To” series.

Paranormal – If I just want a paranormal series, not worrying about anything magical, I’m likely to pull out Heather Long’s Wolves of Willow Bend series. Lots of intrigue, romance and action. For the most part, the heat level is acceptable without straying into areas I’d rather not have my boss know about.

Magical Paranormal – This is where I would put Coreene Callahan’s Dragonfury series. Each of the guys has a different magical gift that they use daily in their battles. Again, clean enough for work.

Paranormal Domestic Discipline – Anything, and I do mean anything by Delta James will work here. I love reading these or listening to them! Not safe for work.

Not Safe For Work Emily Tilton tops my list in this department. She has a number of different series going, plus ones that seem to be complete. Among these are three that echo each other.

So there you have it, my “Go To” series. Sorry this is late getting out!

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.

Everything just flew & the next thing I know I’m finished reading this book.

Grey is not only his name but the color of his dragon & I don’t really remember him in any of the previous books in this series.

Star, is a wolf that I don’t really remember either but, she supposedly has had past dealings with the bad guy.

But, you’ll have to read the book to find out what the deal was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julia Mills continues to entertain us with her wonderful stories
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2018
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!!

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.

The Reviews!

Dannika aka Dani Do Chara, Morning Star of the Crystal Clan is a healer and was adopted by Alpha Joshua of the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack, even though she isn't a wolf, after her parents were killed, She's very special and her mother made her promise to hide what she truly is and concentrate on her healing abilities. When she meets her mate the prophecy will start and she can be her true self.
Wolfe McCallum, a Dragon, along with Dragons Grey & Angus go to help out at the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack. They are being plagued by Rogues who are afraid of Dragons! Wolfe has been having dreams about a gorgeous woman and was told his mate is near or he's about to meet her. Oh now way - Wolfe doesn't want any mate at this time. When they get to the Blue Ridge Wolf Pack, he sees the woman of his dreams and groans and realizes she is his Mate. When they meet she knows he's her mate too but mind speaks to him not to tell the others what she is. Of course things don't go easily for Wolfe with his sassy Mate. Then there is the evil that is coming for her. Will the prophecy come true now that she has met her Mate?
Loved this story and the sassy Dani and the arrogant Wolfe. They are perfect for each other. There's suspense, drama, angst, magic, humor and romance.

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.

Dani has got so used to hiding who she really is, even from her adoptive family, it has become send nature to her. But when her pack requests help from some Dragons she never expected to meet her mate, sending her into a tailspin and kickstarting a prophecy!

A Dragon called Wolfe! It was supposed to be an easy job, helping out some wolves to eradicate some rogues. But when he recognises his mate Wolfe is left confused. Why is she living as a human within a wolf pack? But her subterfugs leads to all kinds of friction between them...mostly of the good kind. But when they finally claim each other, they leave the others thinking they have been kidnapped or worse, killed.

But with Dani's true nature revealed her family take her deceptions hard. Will finding her mate lead to her losing her family?

Fabulous read. With evil shapeshifters, magic, cunning Goddesses and that ever fickle fate blending together in a wonderful tale.
