Review @JessieDauthor - The Dragon Guardian by Jessie Donovan (Lochguard Highland Dragons #2)

The Dragon Guardian
Lochguard Highland Dragons #2
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  Gina MacDonald may be pregnant and on the run, but she will do anything to protect her unborn child—even go up against a dragon-shifter. While hiding in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, she soon notices the black dragon perched on the nearby hills. She debates if he is related to her past or not, but then a pain overcomes her and the dragon finally swoops down to help. Despite her determination to stay clear of all dragon-shifter males, his touch not only helps ease her tension, it sets her skin on fire.

Fergus MacKenzie protects his clan by collecting information and warning them of threats. When a redheaded American shows up out of the blue along a nearby lake, he watches her to find out more. However, when he watches her bend over in pain, he flies down to help her. Afterward, he should walk away. But he can’t stop thinking about her green eyes and addictive touch. Both man and beast want her more than anything in their lives.

As Fergus learns more of Gina’s past, he knows she will bring danger to his clan. Torn between protecting his family and following his heart, will Gina and Fergus be able to find a happy ending? Or, will danger force Fergus to choose between love and clan? 

About the Author:  Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.

After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.

Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The one thing you'll find in all of Jessie's stories are strong, capable women and the people who love them.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received the ebook from the author for an honest review

The cover is beautiful as always though it is rare to see two gingers together, but only because I don’t know that they would survive each other because redheads tend to be… well you can figure it out.  I speak from experience ;)

This is the 2nd book in this series which is a spin off of Stonefire Dragons.  Yes, you could read this book without reading the others, but you would be cheating yourself.  I have loved all the book’s Jessie has written and I have bought most of them even though I was given a copy to review because I can’t think of a better way to support the author you love if you can afford to.  I sometimes have to wait, but I eventually get them.  That being said, I highly recommend reading them all in order because you gain perspective and history of all the wonderful characters that Jessie has created.  It is always a great day when I get a new book by Jessie to read especially if I can start it right away.

Gina is an American on the run in Scotland because she wants to keep her baby.  American dragons are not as bonny as Scottish dragons.  Of course, if you read book 1, you know who Fergus is, and this is his story.  There is plenty of action and bickering MacKenzies to keep you entertained and laughing.  I even cried because I’m a sucker for sappiness when I connect with the characters.  I couldn’t put the book down.  I can’t wait for more of Jessie’s dragons.

I highly recommend this series and any of Jessie’s Dragon stories to all dragon romance fans especially if you like a dragon with an accent.
