Born prematurely, Christoff wasn't as big or as strong as the other younglings, but when the mountain near his family's farm awakens, he is sure that he is the only one who can quiet it. He spends the next few centuries watching over the the village that shunned him, dreaming of the day he can move on to his next life, a life that he hopes will include a true mate. He knows his time has come when the mountain begins to tremble again. What he doesn't expect is a group of younglings who suddenly appear in the hopes of saving a thing called Christmas. The mountain will erupt this time though, and Christoff will finally get a new life – on a strange planet light years away with a woman who sees beneath his deformity to the warrior hidden within.

It was wonderful too read a book with a 'mature' couple. The fact that one of them had a disability made it even more special. Too often we are shown that only the young and beautiful are deserving of love.

Two worlds collide in a timeless Christmas Well, I fell in love with The Lords of Valdier series when I read Abducting Abby. I’m still in love with it. Ms. Smith is exceptional at character creation and portrayal. It doesn’t matter the species or the age of her characters they capture and hold your attention while pulling at your heartstrings. Her stories dish up adventure that is out of this world good. The Old Dragon of the Mountain’s Christmas dishes up just a little bit more. When the goddess Aikaterina decides to reward this old dragon with his true mate more than one heart is healed. I fell in love with the very lovable and mistreated boy, Cristoff. The picture Ms. Smith paints of a boy razzed and bullied because of his deformities and yet very much loved by his parents quickly has you rooting for this underdog. Centuries later he’s still the loveable and selfless character he’s always been even though he has lived as a hermit for all these years. When he rescues the younglings on his mountain he comes to his goddess’s attention. As a reward she drops him on another mountain on a planet far away… one we are all very familiar with. Take a good guess what happens when a centuries old virgin dragon meets his mate. This old dragon will have you grinning at his antics, crying at his insights and thoughtfulness and totally enthralled with falling in love at any age. We first met Edna in Abducting Abby. She’s a sixty-something widow, mom, and grandmother. She lives in Abby’s old cabin on Abby’s mountain with her golden retriever Bo and her old mule, Gloria. When she discovers a golden ship in the meadow she’s very aware that she’s in the presence of an alien. With the total equanimity that is Edna, she takes it all in stride and takes him home for the holidays. What she didn’t expect was to be handed a second chance at love. Edna is everything Cristoff needs in his life. Cristoff is everything Edna’s family needs this holiday and perhaps her family is everything he needs to be the air beneath his wings. The Old Dragon of the Mountain’s Christmas had me smiling, laughing and crying. It’s everything a Christmas story should be. It’s everything I hope love at sixty will be. If you’re looking for a timeless Christmas story then this one is sure to please. I can’t wait for Jaguin’s Love. Ms. Smith just can’t keep up with my demand for more, so I guess I’ll have to grow a little patience. One thing is for sure the wait is always worth it. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****

Overall Rating: 5 Rockin’ ★★★★★ You know that you have found a one in a million book, when you find yourself laughing out loud one minute and then crying the next. In S. E. Smith’s newest book in the Dragon Lords of Valdier series, The Old Dragon’s Christmas your feelings will run a gamut of emotional responses with each turn of the page. Ms. Smith has created a story that touches the heart and soul of the reader while keeping them entertained with her unique insights into life and love mixed in with alien spice. Christoff has lived his life as an outcast. Loved by his parents, but hated by his brother and the people of his village. Never deemed big enough, or strong enough to be a warrior he is ostracized by those around him. Only his parents see his true worth. The goddess Aikaterina gives him a very special Christmas gift. She gives him a new beginning, a beginning that takes him back to the place where this series all began! Earth! Edna had a good life, married to a man she loved who gave her a beautiful daughter. Now she is alone, her husband dead and her daughter married with a child of her own. Her best friend Abby had gone to live among the stars with her alien warrior and willed her mountain to Edna. But Edna is not one to sit back and feel sorry for herself, she believes in living life to the fullest. So when she sees something landing in the high meadow, she goes to investigate and meets her new destiny. Whenever Ms. Smith releases something new, I am right there waiting for it! Her heroes are more than hunkalicious alpha males, they are men of honor and integrity. The females that create are strong and resilient with beautiful souls. Each character in this book plays an interregnal part in the flow and resolution of this remarkable story. This is a perfect addition to my library of must read books!
