comes back to the dragon valley in order to warn his friend that mercenaries are coming to force him back to his father's clan or kill him. Elder Combs, head of the gray dragon caste realizes quickly that Ewan is an Asda (a human that can bond with a dragon) like his friend Ian, and offers to protect him and help him heal. Combs begins to fall for Ewan right away, but Ewan has always been interested in women. Between his denial of the attraction between them and the danger to the inhabitants of the dragons' valley, the two have a long fight to get to anything resembling happiness.
I enjoyed learning more about the dragons, especially the differences between the castes. Ewan is a man
with a lot of loyalty, and the struggle he had in getting to a place where he could accept a male mate made him a very realistic character. There was also a very interesting scene with Combs' tail! I appreciate Charlie Richards' writing and this story is no exception.
