HER LOVE, HER DRAGON: THE SAGA BEGINS by Julia Mills was a wonderfully entertaining prequel to the author's Dragon Guards series. I have heard such good things about this series featuring dragons and I was not disappointed! This quick read is the story of how the Dragon Guards began. It is the story of Abigail Donovan, a spirited young maiden, and Manus O'Brien, a renowned Knight of the Round Table, and is a romance set in a world with a dying species of dragons.
I loved both Manus O'Brien and his intended, Abigail. Magnus was a wonderfully handsome and gallant hero who also had a good chivalrous heart. Abigail knew her own mind and was determined not to be relegated to the sidelines with her peers. I laughed, swooned and was intrigued by their story which intertwined with the dragons.
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this fantasy:
Taking a step back and turning on her heel, Abigail growled, "I was thinking you have the manners of a stable boy but are dressed like knight.”
"I have loved your daughter from the first time I saw her. We were young. I had no clue what love was, but over the years she has never left my heart. I know with all that I am, I can make her happy."
The lord chuckled, "I believe so too, son. Now all you have to do is convince my daughter."
"Each male dragon has one female, the other half of his soul, the light to his dark. She has been fashioned by the Universe especially for him. Dragons mate for life. Once we find our one perfect mate, there will be no other."
"If you feel you must become a 'dragon man'," she chuckled as she spoke. "Then I will be by your side every step of the way."
This was my first foray into Julia's Dragon Guards series and I'm already hooked. I would recommend HER LOVE, HER DRAGON: THE SAGA BEGINS to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances. If you also love dragons, you will be in heaven! I can't wait to delve into more of this series.
