When Elaine Ashton's father brought back a beautiful egg-shaped rock from Vietnam as a gift, he told her it was a dragon's egg. He didn't expect it to hatch a gorgeous, black-haired baby.
From that moment, Elaine and her Dad knew that someone would come for Ryan and that they must let him go. For how can one lonely man and his daughter raise a child of dragons?
