In the middle of a journey, Reynold de Burgh, a knight, happens upon a village that's being attacked by a dragon. When the head woman of the village, Lady Sabina, begs him to help, he swears on his honor to exterminate the dragon. But is the real danger to Sabina the earnest knight himself, who sets her heart aflame? She can't allow herself to be drawn to him... He's a wolf much more dangerous than the dragon. After all, at some point he must leave and marry a woman suitable to the nobility. And what of the dragon, whose cries they hear and whose fiery breath they can see, but whose true form is a mystery? Will the dragon ever show its face to them...?
