Julia Mills - author_picAuthor Bio 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!
excerptLaughing, they began their trek, joking and teasing but the fun was long forgotten after several hours of endless walking. Kyra was hot, tired and seriously pissed, convinced they were just wasting time, aimlessly marching around the hillside. She was just about to suggest a break when a chill ran down her spine and her hands began to shake. Without saying a word, she dropped into the lotus position with her backpack on her lap and began pulling out her supplies, completely ignoring Lance’s bitching and Devon’s inquiries about her well being It took only a few seconds and she had the silver-framed mirror that had been her great-great-grandmother’s, a vial of blessed water from the Black Lake, and her special herbs and was working her Scrying Spell. She could hear the two Guardsmen discussing what she was doing but concentrated on the task at hand. They had been around her long enough to know she wasn't wasting time; any other explanations would have to wait.
The spell took less than five minutes and had a side effect she had only experienced one other time in her life. Not only did she get a location on Andrew but she also had a vision of what he was planning. The scene that played out in her mind was like watching a horror movie only she could feel what each character felt. Her heart raced and a cold sweat broke out all over her body but she was stuck, watching the complete annihilation of a quaint little community tucked in a once beautifully lush valley. Everything she saw was from Andrew’s point of view so although she hadn’t seen him, she knew he was there but that was the only thing that felt familiar.
She searched the faces of the dead and injured for any indication of the target of the asshole’s destruction but nothing looked familiar and there wasn’t any sound to help. All she knew was that he was somewhere off a rocky coast with turbulent waters and he was having a great time hurting anyone and everyone in his path. The silent movie of destruction went on and on. When she was sure she couldn’t take any more pain and suffering and had decided to see what the guys thought about what she had seen, her heart ceased to beat and her lungs refused to hold air, there standing in the middle of the war zone was Royce. His brow was furrowed, his brown eyes scanning the area for those that most needed his help. Her heart broke when she saw the cuts and bruises covering most of his beautiful face and his torn, bloody and soot-covered clothes.
The horror show unfolding in Andrew’s mind switched to slow motion as Royce moved from person to person helping the living from the rubble and getting them to safety. He wasn’t the only one working rescue but he was the only one that mattered to her. He shouted something and she cursed the lack of sound. In the next instant, a taller version of Royce (Was that even possible?) appeared to his right. The resemblance was uncanny. The new guy’s hair was short and curly but an auburn red instead of bright red and he was not all muscular and hunky, more long and lean which only added to how absolutely tall he was. The two worked furiously to clear away the debris, looking for someone or something specific. Even though only a vision, she could tell they were engaged in a constant stream of mind speak, another wonderful perk of being magical.
An ominous sense of danger filled her and once again her breath stilled in her lungs. She watched as both men turned in unison and began running almost faster than her eyes could track. They were obviously screaming orders to anyone that could hear from the expressions they wore and the way their mouths moved. The feeling of impending doom engulfed every cell of Kyra’s body as she felt Andrew’s enjoyment grow. The sick son if a bitch was enjoying what he was seeing and delighted that more was coming.
Horror movies had never been her thing and to have the man that was her mate in a starring role in one that would be a reality was seriously freaking her out. Sifting through everything she had ever learned that was stored in her goofy brain, she looked for a way to pull out of the vision. Finally, she found what she thought might work, but true to form, a bright light burst before her eyes, vibrations of an explosion she knew was taking place in her mind gave her the sensation of falling right before her world went black.

For the Love of her Dragon (Dragon Guards #4)


For the Love of her Dragon (Dragon Guards #4) by Julia Mills
Review by Angela
Stars: 5

This is a paranormal romance with a touch of mystery. The fourth book in the Dragon Guards series. This can be read as a stand alone being it is descriptive enough but it does continue from the last book. This is another book with an amazing hunk of a dragon... did someone turn on the heat. I recommend this for adults only being there is some fire between the dragon and his woman. Kyra the woman of Royce's dreams is an half human, half witch... what an amazing combination. I really love how she has a forgiving heart but the mouth of a sailor. And I completely understand Royce's hesitancy and grief, I wanted to hug him. Such an exciting read, I need more DRAGONS please. 

This is the story about Kyra St. Croix, a gutsy, cusses like a sailor, nothing girly about her, witch... well technically half human, half witch. She refers to herself as the short sarcastic witch of the south. But don't let her small stature fool you, she is very strong white witch. Her magic gift comes from her mother whom is the High Priestess. Kyra has her own ideas and turns away from her mother, coven and her birthright. All she wants is to find the dragon she knows will love her unconditionally, well that is what she thought until she met Royce..... 

Royce O'Reilly is a red headed, hunk of a dragon man. He has devoted his life to training the younger men in the dragon guard and defending his people, there is still a traitor to deal with. He is the oldest in the MacLendon Force and he has watched as three of his brothers were mated and he awakes for his turn. And the universe does not make mistakes right?

Kyra and Royce have a connection to day the least. But Royce has some inner turmoil that keeps him from committing. Kyra is not one to wait forever. Will Royce put his past behind him and claim his mate. Can Kyra forgive and forget? Will fate be denied? 

favorite passages:
"That was the Wicked Witch of the West. I'm the Short Sarcastic witch of the South."
"You guys look like a couple of drowned rats."
"Kyra was Not a girly-girl, never had been."
"Wake up, Witchy Poo," Lance chuckled while Devon laughed and shook his head.
"Not only because she had taken the Pledge to "do no harm" but also because she just wasn't a villain, hell, she didn't even have an evil laugh."
"Yeah, sure they were bigger but hadn't they heard about dynamite in small packages?"
"Come in", he called out, knowing it was Andy, one of Master Eaton's favorite wizards, from the beat of his heart and the small of bacon on his clothes."
"Eating and drinking with a plane full of idiots ranked right up there with having all his teeth pulled without anesthetic but it was a means to an end and he would do whatever it took to destroy everyone that betrayed him."
"Swoon my a**, dragon man."
"It was time to kick a**, take names and put the mushy sh** to rest."
"She was an obsession. One he knew he couldn't have but craved with all he was."
"They all constantly teased her about turning them into toads and she was about two seconds from making their taunts come true."
"Damn him to hell from making her act like a girl."
"Kyra would rather chop off both her arms and try to swim than ask for Calysta's help."
"Absolutely. No harm done. Thanks for letting me feel you up."
"Once again he heard his mothers laughter and this time it warmed his heart."<3
"You are the best part of me, light of my soul and the completion of all that I am, man and dragon."
"And his heart is singing, I can hear it."

This is a paranormal romance can someone say DRAGON... yum. This is the first book in the Dragon Guards, and I can not wait to start the next book. Yes it can be read as a stand alone but why would you want to? This is a quick read... or maybe it was just I couldn't put it down till I finished it. I recommend this book to adult dragon lovers. This is the story about a voluptuous diva whom is proud of her heritage, she has learned medicine and herbs from her beloved grandmother. And Kyndel is not afraid to voice her opinion... yes I love her. Rayne is the dragon warrior whom plans on protecting Kyndel whom soon learns she is his mate. Yes he is determined to devour her, in the most pleasurable way possible. I love how the author also gives us a glimpse of the dragons themselves. This is an exciting beginning to a yummy series. I can't wait to read more. 

This is the story about Kyndel Masterson she is an independent, voluptuous red head, whom can grow a wonderful herb garden, she is proud of taught gift to make home herb healing recipes, she likes to help others. One night Kyndel has to walk home from work because she has a hard time telling her bestie... NO. She is determined to correct this problem. On the walk she hears some noises trying to figure out if its her imagination or not, she ends up with a handsome man at her feet. Yikes or Yum?

Well that is till his mates scent caught his undivided attention. She was in trouble and he was determined to save her. Regardless of what may happen she comes first. His inner dragon agrees. 

Rayne and Kyndel have an instance attraction, there is no denying they are mates. Kyndel has a lot to learn and accept. She is trying to absorb it on in when someone decides to come back from the dead and try to cause harm to her. Can this day get any worse? 

Favorite passages:

"She has a few extra pounds and her curves were curvier that all the girls she saw in the magazine ads but she knew she has a beautiful peaches and cream complexion with a spattering of freckles across her nose and cheeks and a God given chest no plastic surgeon could duplicate."

"She hoped her friend was ok but if there wasn't at least a bump or a bruise involved Kyndel thought she might just snatch her bestie bald."
"The truth this man was hotter than homemade sin and she just could not keep her eyes from wondering."
"There was absolutely no plausible explanation for the way this man made her inner girl stand up."
"She was held captive by his stare."
"Things were bad enough without adding her special kind of crazy to the mix."
"I'm not even going to ask what the "sniffing the air" routine is about."
"She realized too late that once again he was staring at her, studying her face and smiling a smile that stole her breath and curled her toes."

"Granny had always said every time a bell rang and angel got his wings." <3

Her Dragon's Fire (Dragon Guards #2)


Her Dragon's Fire (Dragon Guards #2) by Julia Mills
Review by Angela
Stars: 5

This is a paranormal romance with a touch of mystery. Yes another yummy dragon shapeshifter book. This is the second book in the Dragons Guard series but could be read as a stand alone, BUT I recommend reading the first book in the series Her Dragon to Slay. This book does carry over from the first book but with enough description you are not lost. This is an adult only read due to fiery sex scenes. I adore the authors choice of using curvaceous women in her books and this is another read that includes a full figured beauty. I love that Grace is a go getter, she stands up for what is right and will not stop till she gets the truth. I simply love her and her best friends' relationship. And I understand Aiden's grief, and I appreciate his dedication to right what is wrong. Another amazing story and I can not wait to read the next book. 

This is the story of Aiden O'Brien a dragon shapeshifter, he is a dragon guardsman. He is captivating with his stunning good looks but on the inside he is broken, he has been for years over the loss of his younger brother. Yes he blames himself, and because of his inner turmoil he will not claim his mate, Grace. Still her face haunts his every dream, her scent calls out to him, and he is dying to claim what is his. Well until fate steps in. 

Grace Kensington is a tough as nails lawyer. She is a non nonsense, get all the facts straight, dedicated to her job, woman. She puts all of herself into her work and most of the time works more than she is physically able. Grace is a loner, she has no one else other than her best friend (whom has a lot of explaining to do). She is involved in a case that is way beyond what it seems and she has once again exhausted herself. She decides to stay close to her office and by chance encounters the man who's mere scent can make her weak in the knees. They are both infatuated with each other, but to stubborn to admit their feelings. 

Aiden and Grace have a lot of physical chemistry to say the least. But there is trouble in the horizon and there are lives at stake. Aiden will do anything to keep Grace safe, and he will be put to the test several times before the day is through. Will he ever get the chance to mark claim to his mate? Will Grace ever get the chance to solve her biggest case?

favorite passages:

"Let's go with charm, not pain in the a** stalking."
"Anyone that didn't like it could kiss her "fat" a**"
"He dreamt of running his hands through the long waterfall of hair that hung almost to her waist; knew it would feel like heavy silk sliding through his fingers."
"She was going to Kyndel's and if Mr. Smells So Good was there, maybe she could get answers to some of her question, but not before she as a shower and something that didn't come out of a vending machine to eat."
"Good God, it looked tight enough to bounce a quarter off of and damn if her mouth didn't water wanting to take a bite."
"Walking with an erection hard enough to pound nails was difficult to say the least, but when he had scented Grace's arousal, it took considerable control not to fall on her luscious body and give them bother the release they wanted and needed."
"Yea, stalker boy, she will think you are worse than crazy."
"Good God his muscles had muscles."
"This man needed a warning label."
"Well, hell, score one for the dragon man, he chuckled to himself."
"You're always hungry," Royce said as he smack him in the back of the head."
"He would move heaven and earth and fight hell to protect her."
"The closer they got Grace realized they were just as good looking as they were huge."
"She hated that he wasn't even breathing heavily when she was in serious need of an oxygen tank."
"She wanted this man, every demanding, Alpha pain in the a** inch of him."
"My sun, moon, and stars revolve around you."
"One perfectly orchestrated speech meant to sway the judge and jury to believe in their innocence."

Haunted by Her Dragon (Dragon Guards #3)


Haunted by Her Dragon (Dragon Guards #3) by Julia Mills
Review by Angela
Stars: 5

This is a paranormal romance. The third book in the Dragon Guard series. This can be read as a stand alone, but continues from the first two books. I recommend this for adults only, some hot dragon love going on in this book. This book has a awesome, independent, hard working woman Samantha, she has been through a lot of tragedy in her life, and she is not looking for love. Sam knows she has a guardian angel whom fills her dreams but little does she know he is also a dragon. Lance is a dragon shifter who is a jokester at heart. He wants nothing more than to claim his mate but doesn't to bring her into a world of confusion, there is a problem he needs to take care of before he can dedicate himself to her. Fate seems to disagree with both of them. I can not wait for more! 

This is the story about Samantha Malone, the doctor whom never takes time for herself. She is dedicated to her job, and has a hard time saying no. She has been through more tragedy than most, she lost her mom and sister in a car accident, she was later kidnapped and almost killed, yes she has been though hell and survived. Fortunately for her, a man whom she found out was named Lance, pulled her from near death. He captivated her from the first touch and he still haunts her dreams. She still feels his piercing blue eyes watching over her from the shadows, her guardian dragon.

Lance Kavanaugh is a dragon guardsman. He knew from day he pulled Sam from near death that she was his mate. He denied himself the privileged of his mate to keep her safe. He does not want to drag her into his world with all the commotion going on, there is a traitor in their mists and that must come first. But nothing will keep him from protecting her even if it's from a distance. He will keep her safe. Now if he can keep the promise to himself and wait till the time is right to claim Sam.

Lance is a jokester and paybacks are going to be torture... for him that is. All his fellow guardsmen are in line to lay on the comebacks for all the teasing he put them through. Because fate will not be denied any longer. Lance will have to put his preferences aside, he can not longer deny he is meant to be with Sam. He will have to put in some overtime in the protection department.

favorite passages:
"Nothing could have prepared for her the innocent blue eyes, surrounded by long thick lashes, topping the cutest little chubby cheeks in the world that looked up at her as she knocked on the half closed door."
"When she looked, Sydney had both of her pudgy little hands covering her mouth while her shoulders bounced with laughter."
"Adam, wheeling her young patient into the huge, instrument filled room."
"Oh hell yea, she would share so very many things with him."
"So light a blue that in the sunlight they almost seemed colorless but they looked at her they seemed to glow."
"Well actually I'd enjoy kicking your a**."
"Not as good looking as Lance but she knew loads of women that would let those beefcakes eat crackers in their beds anytime."
"Royce always told him the day would come when his mouth would write a check his a** couldn't cash."
"Oh well, what the hell was family for if not to mess with you every chance they got."
"He looked to Max and pointed at the cat on his other side, "I'm not sure but I believe I'm being scolded by the fur ball."
"The saying dynamite comes in small packages came to mind."
"Something funny there dragon man?"
"There had been no goodbye or prayers for a happy ending, only caskets, and flowers and weeping mourners." <3
"Hey there macho man, whats with the moony eyes? Did cupid shove an arrow up your a**."
"The last word was barely out of his mouth before both of his girls had thrown their arms around his neck, and he understood the true meaning of "huggy party"
"It was the least I could do to honor the man that gave so much, and loved us so completely."
"The love they shared defied all explanations, it simply was." <3
