Review of "Haunted by her Dragon" By: Julia Mills

"Haunted by her Dragon" By: Julia Mills 
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ 

Once again Julia Mills creates a perfect blend between the human and the magic world as another member of the Dragon Guard succumbs to the draw of his soul mate.  As this is the third book in the series, you do need to read them all to get the full flavour and appreciation of the world that Julia Mills has created. 
Payback is a bitch for Lance, a brave and sexy as sin Dragonshifter, has been teasing the members of his clan that have found their mates constantly and now it is his turn.  He knew that Dr Samantha Malone was the one for her the moment he looked into her eyes when he rescued her from the hands of kidnappers.  Ever since that day he has been keeping his distance to keep her safe but close enough to protect her. 
Dr Samantha Malone, Sam is a fiercely independent woman who depends on no-one but herself.  She has been alone for most of her life after the tragic death of her own family and growing up in foster care.  She is scared of opening her own heart for fear of losing loved ones again. 
Unfortunately, Andrew is still around causing problems for the Dragon Guard and their mates (present and future), determined to get revenge for what he sees as their desertion of him when he was captured.  Hell bent on gaining strength through dark magic, no-one is safe from him and his plan.   
Lance and Sam are just starting to open up to the possibility of love and a future together when tragedy strikes, potentially taking one away from the other before they have an opportunity to explore what's there between them.  Will their strength of love and trust in each other get them through?  Will they be able to open their hearts to true concept of soul mates to pull through this? 
Sam's character is different to the women that have captured the hearts of the Dragon Guard already.  We have seen her at her worst when she was kidnapped and we have seen her at her best.  She is so scared of opening up her heart to hurt that she has closed herself down to the possibility of love but her compassion for others is never far away and is a shining beacon that all should follow.  Lance has his work cut out breaking down these walls but if anyone is up to the task it's Lance.  By taking things slowly and being protective and caring, he does this slowly but surely but it takes the possibility of losing each other for this wall to truly come crumbling down. 
The Dragon Guard are honourable dragonshifters and as hot as sin with an easy, teasing rapport that draws you in to their world.  The way that they worship and treat their soulmates with utmost respect and love and ravish them whenever they can will make you pine for one of your own.  The women that end up with the dragonshifters are very lucky indeed. 
Another fantastic read from Julia Mills, with a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat, hot sex scenes and characters that you can relate to and fall in love with for the most part.  I can't wait see who is next to find their mate - oh how the mighty are made stronger with their mate by their side!
