We are in a Great Britain where dragons are real having come out of hiding. Their numbers are dwindling because their women give birth to more boy dragons than girls and there are dragon hunters out there who have always known of their existence. To combat the first problem the Government has an agreement with the dragons that basically treats them as the US Government did the American Indians. They have to live in reservations and are not allowed to fly over any cities or large towns. It has been discovered that the blood of an adult dragon can cure most diseases except cancer. In exchange for a vial of this blood single, fertile women whose genes are compatible with dragon genes, can offer themselves as a sacrifice. In other words, they must live with an individual from one of the clans for a period of six months. If she gets pregnant in that time then she will remain with the clan until giving birth. After the birth f the child she can make the decision to leave the baby to be raised by its father and resume her human life or she can stay and help to raise the baby herself. There is the further complication that she has a high chance of not surviving childbirth.
Melanie Hall is one thesis away from earning her PhD in Social Anthropology but has put this on the back burner in order to save her young brother’s life. He has beaten cancer only to come down with a life threatening disease which the dragon’s blood will cure. She has successfully passed all the tests and been accepted as a sacrifice.
Tristan McLeod has been chosen as the male dragon who is to impregnate Melanie if possible. The problem is that he hates humans since they killed his mother and tortured his sister ten years prior.
Definitely not a match made in heaven! He makes everything as difficult as possible for Melanie but this lady is made of sterner stuff than he’s ever come across!
A much different take on dragons and their place in the world but very gripping and enjoyable.
