It’s Thanksgiving and Tommy Weston is busy making out his Christmas list. It’s a rather lengthy list and there are several expensive items on it, but he knows his parents can afford to get him these things. He’s an only child, somewhat spoiled and maybe even a little greedy. He thinks the world revolves around him and expects to get nearly everything he wants. That’s until he meets Jason and learns about his life.
Adam was just a normal eighteen year old, struggling with his sexuality and wishing he was just a normal straight guy who didn't have to deal with the rejection and heartache of coming out. To cope he has immersed himself in books and ignored his sexuality as best as he can; however on his eighteenth birthday he gives into temptation and then loses everything.
The Dragon King has spent a thousand years acting as mediator between four squabbling races who are determined to destroy the world. But despite his great power, Galeath aches for the one thing he can't buy with his riches; love.
