Adam Rivers is about to be sacrificed to the bloodthirsty dragons for the crime of not paying his debts. Instead of being eaten alive, he wakes up as he's being touched in the most wonderful way he can imagine. Someone he knows, someone familiar, is on top of him, loving him, and claims that Adam belongs to him. Adam, not knowing what is happening, but just happy to be alive, willingly gives in. His new lover is the very dragon who spirited him away. Novik Gray claims to love and adore Adam, and that he will do anything to protect him. Adam recalls saving Novik's life ten years earlier, but is Novik simply confusing gratitude with love? All Adam knows is that he wants to stay by the man's side, but when a friend is put in danger, Adam will be forced to test just how much Novik truly claims to love him.
