When Arthur meets professor Jones, a dragon and an historian, he is immediately attracted to the other man, but he is also scared by these strong feelings. And Philbert “Bertie” Jones is disconcerting in many ways, above all in the sweet and tender courtship that he undertakes to conquer skittish Arthur. Bertie is not pushing, he vows Arthur with little things, and above all, taking care of him, being sure the other man is well-fed and comfortable; he treasured Arthur like the most precious thing, and is always generous with praises for him. Of course this means that Arthur will fall in love with Bertie without him even realizing it, one day he is scared and the day after he is in love.
The sexy side of the story is good, but not overwhelming, Arthur and Bertie will enjoy their love, but that is not the main focus of the novel. The reader will arrive to realize that Bertie replayed the old legends of the dragon conquering the virgin sent by the peasants as an offer to the beast; Arthur will discover that Bertie is not a beast at all, that he is actually a bit of a nerd, very generous and sweet. It will be interesting to see how Arthur will deal with the hatchlings that Bertie is supposed to deliver to posterity…
