Carter takes fantasy and turns it into
a free-for-all in her tale of helpless maidens, ravaging dragons and a cave built
for two.

Midsummer's Eve should be a time of celebration, but for some it could mean death. Rowena faces that horrific possibility when her village offers her up as a delicacy for a dragon's dinner.

When the winged and enormously fanged creature takes her back to his cave, however, he turns into one of the most handsome men she has ever seen—a man with a taste for fleshly pleasures.

Rowena's body is teased and taunted by Virid until she is helpless with desire. But their first night of lovemaking doesn't make up for the lie he tells her in the morning. There is no way she could be a dragon herself, but soon Rowena discovers that her lover speaks the truth.

When after days and nights of dragon play, she becomes pregnant, both Rowena and Virid wait to see if their little bundle of joy will have fangs and claws.
