Is "a long time ago" 3 years? 10 years? 25 years? Is this children's, YA, or adult? Remember the cover? Author female or male?

SBC (essbeecee) | 905 comments Could it be the Indigo series by Louise Cooper? The first book is Nemesis: "Princess Anghara had no place in the Forbidden Tower, and no business tampering with its secrets. But she did, and now the seven demons are loose and her world is cursed, prey to the wrath of the Earth Goddess."

"Aerin is an outcast in her own father’s court, daughter of the foreign woman who, it was rumored, was a witch, and enchanted the king to marry her.

She makes friends with her father’s lame, retired warhorse, Talat, and discovers an old, overlooked, and dangerously imprecise recipe for dragon-fire-proof ointment in a dusty corner of her father’s library. Two years, many canter circles to the left to strengthen Talat’s weak leg, and many burnt twigs (and a few fingers) secretly experimenting with the ointment recipe later, Aerin is present when someone comes from an outlying village to report a marauding dragon to the king. Aerin slips off alone to fetch her horse, her sword, and her fireproof ointment . . .

But modern dragons, while formidable opponents fully capable of killing a human being, are small and accounted vermin. There is no honor in killing dragons. The great dragons are a tale out of ancient history.

That is, until the day that the king is riding out at the head of an army. A weary man on an exhausted horse staggers into the courtyard where the king’s troop is assembled: “The Black Dragon has come . . . Maur, who has not been seen for generations, the last of the great dragons, great as a mountain. Maur has awakened.”

The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley - Sue's suggestion

I don't suppose it was the Seventh Tower series?

Kathryn (sesibear) | 17 comments she says it wasn't a series it's "something tower" and the girl can turn into animals or talk to them maybe?

Kathryn, are you still looking for this or did you find it?

SBC (essbeecee) | 905 comments There's nothing about a tower in the title (and it's a series!) but Tamora Pierce's Immortals series is about a girl who can talk to and turn into animals and who falls in love with an older guy, so I will suggest it just in case.

There is also Talina in the Tower by Michelle Lovric, but I don't think it has any romance.
