LOCHGUARD HIGHLAND DRAGONS BOOK 1
In order to pay for her father’s life-saving cancer treatment, Holly Anderson offers herself up as a sacrifice and sells the vial of dragon’s blood. In return, she will try to bear a Scottish dragon-shifter a child. While the dragonman assigned to her is kind, Holly can’t stop looking at his twin brother. It’s going to take everything she has to sleep with her assigned dragonman. If she breaks the sacrifice contract and follows her heart, she’ll go to jail and not be able to take care of her father.
Even though he’s not ready to settle down, Fraser MacKenzie supports his twin brother’s choice to take a female sacrifice to help repopulate the clan. Yet as Fraser gets to know the lass, his dragon starts demanding something he can’t have—his brother’s sacrifice.
Holly and Fraser fight the pull between them, but one nearly stolen kiss will change everything. Will they risk breaking the law and betraying Fraser’s twin? Or, will they find a way out of the sacrifice contract and live their own happily ever after?
Full-length book with happy ending / 18+, explicit language and sexual situations / 68,000 words

Loved the book and the twists!
The story opens on a young woman, Holly Anderson, getting out of a Taxi at the gates to Clan Lochguard, talking to herself about having a baby with a dragon-shifter and the reasons she is here. It brings tears to her eyes when she thinks of her Father, back at home battling for his life due to cancer, the reason she was here in the first place. She almost lost her nerve. That’s when she meets the tall, charismatic leader of Clan Lochguard, Finlay Stewart. Finn puts her at ease with a wink. This is just the beginning!
Holly Anderson is a devoted daughter who would do anything to help her ailing Dad. She happens to be an OB/GYN Nurse well versed in dealing with Mums and Dads in the throes of Labor. So Holly knows all about the having a baby part. Fergus and Fraser MacKenzie are the loud, boisterous, unruly, hunky, luscious nice -looking identical twin cousins of Finn. Fergus is the calm, serious, studious, romantic, and Fraser the nosey, act-first-think-later, fun loving one, ladies -man! Both hold clan close and family closer.
Fraser and Holly meet, when Fraser successfully stalks her, peering over fences and looking in windows. Arabella makes a deal with Fraser to “clean up the garden” if she lets him meet Holly. Their first meeting was cold, Holly excused herself, leaving Fraser talking with his dragon. Fraser knows he’s in deep trouble when his dragon starts talking about the tall, brunette being “ours”, and “Im going after her”. Holly Anderson is Fraser MacKenzie’s true mate!
Fraser’s goose is cooked! On one hand he would love to do nothing more than sweep the lass off her feet and steal her away. On the other hand Holly was designated as Fergus Sacrifice, she would go to prison if she broke the rules, and oh yeah! Finn would kill him! All he had to do was not get near her and above all, never kiss her! Easier said than done!
Dinner with MacKenzies is a wild affair. Fraser and Holly meet accidently upstairs away from the family. Fraser can’ keep his dragon contained, He MUST HAVE Holly!!!! Fraser tries to get Holly in a compromising positon. But as they are about to meet lips, Finn intervenes!
Fraser pleads with Finn telling him Holly is his true mate. Fraser asks and Holly agrees to have the DDA transfer the contract from Fergus to Fraser. Holly learns from Aunt Lorna and Finn about Mate Frenzy. She’s both terrified and curious about how sex with Fraser nonstop till she was pregnant would go. All she knows is her life as she knew it has drastically changed!
The dragon dance continues with Fraser and Holly going through a wild, sensual mate frenzy. Holly and Fraser grow closer. Rogue dragons try to steal Holly while she and Fraser she go to Aberdeen to see her Father. Fraser and other Lochguard dragons pursue. But questions remain. How does Fergus deal with Fraser and Holly’s betrayal? Does Fraser get Holly in the end? You’ve got to read the book!
Jessie Donovan has woven a very successful Dragon-shifter Universe centered around the British isles. The Dragons Dilemma introduces us to another Clan, Lochguard. We caught glimpses of Lochguard in another story about clan leader Finn Stewart and his strong-willed mate Arabella in “Healed by the Dragon”. Jessie weaves a complex yet simple world around her dragon-shifters. Her characters are believable and make you feel as if you were there. I have read all of her dragon-shifter books and appreciate her humor as well as her male/female interaction. I cannot wait to see what happens to Fergus and others from Lochguard!
I was given a copy in exchange for a Fair and Honest Review
This story is about the first sacrifice on Lochguard in 15 years. Finn the leader of the Scottish clan has worked everything out down to the letter, what could possible go wrong?
Well the sacrifice could fall for the wrong brother and chaos could erupt....
Holly Anderson has agreed to become a sacrifice in order to save her father's life. She goes in willingly, hoping to serve her 6 months sentence, as she see's it, and get out without the sacrifice of actually having to birth a Scottish dragon man's baby. Now if she could only choose the father of her unborn little dragon, forgot the one she truly wants, not go to jail and still saves her dad, life would be perfect.
Fraser Mackenzie is the twin Holly's been assigned to and he can't stop wanting her. She is his true mate but his brother Fraser's future. What's a poor dragon man to do but fight it and keep it all a secret. Too bad Holly feels the same strong passions for him as he does for her. Oh and that his dragon is hell bent on not letting her go and tormenting him for the rest of his life if he doesn't claim her by impregnate her now!
This is a book full of sacrifices and dilemma's in so many ways that once you start reading it you aren't gonna want to stop. I loved the conflict in this book and how so many different characters were introduced at a nice steady flow, while also hearing from a few members of the stonefire clan as well.
Jessie Donovan once again pulls you into her Dragon clan world with her humor, plots and family drama that you can't help but wait for the next book to come out.

Overall there are a lot of other authors who do this so much better. I won't bother with this one again.
