Cole Jayden is a Templar, but he's never killed a dragon. He feels guilty whenever a new prisoner is brought in, especially this latest one, a man so handsome that it makes him shake. When he's charged to watch over this man, who looks so damned good when he stares at Cole, Cole is finding himself having some very serious thoughts about the life he's been forced to live. Craig Hacket is a dragon warrior, though he doesn't feel much like a warrior when he's captured and put into chains. He hates all Templars, but this new one who watches him in the night, who reads to him and sneaks him food, is especially interesting. He senses something between them, but it's not until he convinces Cole to open the door, to come to him and let Craig show him all kinds of pleasure, that Craig knows the truth. This Templar is his mate.
