Dray is a new member of the Ogorth clan, and he doesn't feel like he fits in just yet. Everyone's nice, but with humans now aware that dragons have a human form, the clan is focused on dealing with that.
Nithe likes Dray, but he's in love with his best friend, Orion. Since he's not about to ruin his friendship with Orion, he thinks he might find love with Dray, at least until he realizes Orion likes Dray, too, and it seems like Dray might be okay with that. If Dray holds Orion's happiness, Nithe will gladly step aside, but before he can, he and Orion are summoned by the queen.
Orion isn't surprised when the queen calls for a meeting of clans. Humans are a danger to every dragon clan, not just theirs, and the leaders have to agree on how to deal with them. Orion doubts that can ever happen, but his queen gave an order, and he'll obey.
Dray knows he'll get in trouble if he follows the clan members to the meeting of clans, but he won't stay back. He's relieved when instead of being sent home, he's allowed to stay, but even here, he doesn't quite belong—not until Nithe and Orion tell him they want each other and him as well.
Nithe and Orion are busy protecting the queen from other clan leaders, but they're not the only danger lurking in the darkness of the forest surrounding their camp. Will they be able to protect the queen, the clan, and the dragon they've both come to love? Will they be able to protect each other and allow the three of them to find happiness?
