Sergeant Bailey Stevenson doesn’t see how Captain David Wellmine could be attracted to him. He believes his injuries sustained in the line of duty are too extensive for David to see him as a lover. David isn’t immune to Bailey, but knows what is expected of him by his father, and that path doesn’t lead to David admitting he is gay.

A spell on St. Patrick’s Day removes the obstacles keeping David and Bailey from acting on their attraction. Will David decide to claim the love Bailey wants to supply, or will he continue down a road that leads to misery and living a false existence?

T. A. Chase’s Fighting Dragons is the latest release in the Dragons series. This is the story that I’ve been waiting to read. Bailey’s character pulled at my heartstrings when he was first introduced. His battle to remain independent even after sustaining his injuries and living with constant pain is admirable. David had reasons he deems important for not pursuing Bailey but when the right set of circumstances opened the door, there was no stopping David from reacting. His sensuality and ability to take in Bailey’s needs made me ache and I knew in that moment they were meant to be together, not just for Bailey’s sake but for David’ sake as well.

Fighting Dragons flows effortlessly and I found myself reading the last sentence too soon, but it has left me roaring for the next story.
