A lovelorn sea serpent named Fafnir causes problems for everyone in this New Camelot tale. The people of Tragumna face a hungry winter because his presence bars traders from entering the port. Cassandra, a headstrong witch, goes against the rules and casts a spell summoning a paladin to rid the waters of their woe. Washed up football player Richard Knight is pulled through the time and space continuum and told he can't return until he slays a creature out of nightmares or dies trying. Lady Aoife, a warrior- sorceress doesn't know what to do with the man from the Old World and strives to protect him from a lusty mermaid, a hormonal teenager, and a murderous pirate. For Richard to return home, he and Aoife must combine forces to achieve the impossible goal of removing an entrenched sea serpent. Both are hot tempered and used to employing force to get their way. However, this particular problem does not respond to force. They must learn to control their emotions and think before acting. With their tempers in a death grip, other emotions are free to rise: admiration, desire, and love. They are faced with a heartbreaking decision—fulfill the onus by convincing Fafnir's mate to return to him and depart the area or do nothing and remain together while Aoife's people suffer privation. It will take copious amounts of ale, some serpent psychology, a goddess with a wicked sense of humor and two lascivious fairies to help Richard and Aoife be together the way fate intended.
