    Summary

    By a stroke of luck or by a gift from God, Anne Boleyn escapes the executioner's block with her head intact, and her crown―for now, at least. Death, as Anne comes to realize, might almost have been easier.

    Summary

    After Master Murdoch had been taken away by the tide, it was not only a need for work that sent Foggy again and again to sea. He had tried to stay on land, walk the streets of London, go to church, and drink with his friends and neighbours. But his head turned at every flash of red and every rust-haired man he passed. His ears pricked up any time he heard the tap of a cane.

    So he spent five years on the water, where there was only blue as far as the eye could see—the bright blue of the the sky and the deep blue of the ocean and the muddy grey blue of wood and men washed repeatedly by salt.

    Summary

    “Who are you?” Keith had asked.

    “No one,” the boy had said, his eyes bright and strange, pale in his face, - and you know what they say about history, how it repeats itself - and then he’d smiled, the sharp hook of it impaling Keith right through his chest. “A poor unfortunate soul. If you believe what people say.”

    In which Lance is the son of a courtesan, Keith is born starving, and they’re both just trying to tread water.

    Summary

    “Why is this face of beauty ringing so true?” The genuine confusion in Harry’s voice causes Louis’ chest to painfully twinge. “You’re a complete stranger in my eyes, William Shakespeare, but not in my heart. How is that possible?”

    Louis wants to live out every romance plot he has ever written in his own life. He wants to be the protagonist of his own narrative, the hero who finds true love and gets his happy ending. Instead, Louis is stuck with only dreaming of such wild fantasies and writing them down. He can create entire romances in his dreams, yet he can never live one.

    Summary

    «Non ci devi mica mangiare, sai?» commentò ironicamente mentre esaminava l'oggetto che teneva in mano.
    «Direi piuttosto che i miei polsi soffrono già abbastanza a causa loro», ribatté Francis, posando il bicchiere ormai vuoto sul piccolo mobile alla sua destra «non voglio che la situazione peggiori ulteriormente.»
    «I tuoi polsi saranno l'ultimo dei tuoi problemi, Francis»[...].
