'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
Valda Rollins hates dragons and now he's stuck with one who won't leave him alone. It was bad enough he was imprisoned for helping right a wrong, but the beast locked up with him won't stop pestering him.
Flame is a simple dragon. All he wants is to help his kingdom and if he gets a mate along the way he'd be even happier. Flame's sole purpose in life is to protect people and he does that by staying strong. He doesn't understand why more people don't want to be their best. So what if he works out a lot, at least he can help those who need him, maybe even someday he could be a kings guard--that was until he met Valda and his plans changed.
Flame knew the instant he saw Valda they were mates. Valda might have other ideas, but Flame will get his man.
