#Review: Haunted By Her Dragon – Julia Mills
Samantha Malone has had her share of hardships. She lost her family in a tragic car accident, and she’s still reeling from an unexpected kidnapping. Though she’s done her best to move on with her life, it hasn’t been that easy. She still yearns for what she’s lost, even though she knows she’ll never see her loved ones again. Still, she’ll do everything possible to live the life she’s done her best to achieve.
Samantha’s life takes another unexpected turn when the luscious Lance makes another appearance in her life. The man has been wreaking havoc on her libido ever since she laid eyes on him. To have him standing before her in the flesh is a blow she hasn’t quite recovered from. Nevertheless, she’ll do everything possible to still her racing thoughts and hormones in order to continue helping those who need it.
When the life of one of her patients is put at risk, Samantha soon realizes that things aren’t what they seem. Someone is definitely trying to make a statement, and they’re using her patient in hopes of making her do what they want her to do. Refusing to bend to anyone’s will but her own, she promises herself to protect her charge with every fiber of her being. Granted, Lance’s mere presence throws a crimp into her plans, but she’s determined in achieving her goals.
As further attempts on her life are made, Samantha does her best to come to terms with the way things are now. Though she doesn’t quite understand what’s going on, she knows there’s a suitable explanation. Lance obviously knows, but refuses to say much. Getting him to talk is going to take some doing, something she’ll do everything to make happen. Somehow, some way, the truth will be known. Crisis must be averted. Only then, can she give in to the way Lance makes her feel whenever he’s around.
Although I’ve started this series with the third book, I must say that it provides enough back story to make it stand alone. I found each of the characters to be endearing in their own right. Even the enigmatic Andrew has his own merits. A truly suspenseful read, I look forward to more of these lovely characters, and will definitely catch up soon on what I’ve missed with books one and two.

Life has never been easy for Dr. Samantha Malone especially since the day all those years ago that her family was taken in a tragic car accident. Now at almost twenty-nine years old and an aspiring surgeon, she is faced with putting her life back together once again after being kidnapped and left for dead. Had it not been for six feet two inches of walking muscle in ripped jeans and worn cowboy boots with crystal blue eyes and a cheeky grin that made her wonder what he was up to, she might never have seen the light of day. All these months later she knows he protects her from the shadows, never far but never seen. Why? What does he know that she does not?
There are no coincidences.
He protects her, always unseen but never far, making sure the ones that dared to hurt her do not come back while he waits for the time when he can claim her as his own. Fear is not something the fierce Dragon Guardsman is used to feeling but it is something he has become accustomed to over the last seven months. Fear that he will not catch the traitor and his cohorts before they hurt those he cares most deeply for. Fear that he will not be able to protect the one the Universe made especially for him. Fear that he is not what Samantha needs but then…
The Universe does not make mistakes.
Lance has spent his long life cracking jokes and making fun of his brethren as each succumbed to the sappiness of everlasting love with the one that completes them like no other. Now the Universe is the one laughing and his fellow Guardsmen are the ones making jokes as the mating call of his kin and his dragon push him headlong towards the one that will bring light to his soul in this life and the next. He can no longer deny that he is meant to spend the rest of his many years with Sam but his obligation to eliminate any threats to her life must come first…right? For the Guardsman who has hot-dogged his way through one hundred and twelve years, one brown-eyed curly-headed doctor will make him rethink everything he ever knew.
Fate will not be denied.
About The Author:
Mom of two rockin’ girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!
I am a sarcastic, sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters, a menagerie of animals, and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess’ Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.
I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance. I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!
