    Summary

    **Felicity Smoak cursed the gravel beneath her feet as she slogged up the road to the Queen estate, a place she never wanted to come back to. The only good thing about returning to the palatial mansion was that it gave her a break from Billy. The foolish wide-eyed boy wanted desperately to marry her, but at twenty-one Felicity wasn't ready for commitment. She hadn't tasted the world yet. The Queen estate wasn't exactly what she had in mind when she told her friends she planned to explore it before putting down roots, but it was a piece of her past that she had never faced. She returned to Queen that day with a heavy heart, an empty stomach and a pound of fear in her chest.**

    Summary

    From a young age, wizarding children were taught to be wary of no-majs. There was no choice but to live amongst them, despite the dangers. And it was impossible to avoid them, especially in a city such as New York. So they had to blend in. Be polite, but distant. Kind but aloof. To be anything else was dangerous. Be rude and evoke suspicion and hatred. Too friendly and it drew people too close and risked being caught.
    Percival had been taught the law as a child, followed it faithfully as a teen, and enforced it as an adult. But one moment of being a gentleman towards a frazzled no-maj would set on a course that changed his opinion on the law between magic and no-maj worlds.

    But then again, life rarely goes in the way we expect.

    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s–

    And this romance is illegal.

    Summary

    Gale sat back in the darkened booth, peering through the haze of smoke to the group of men across the speakeasy. They were busy flirting with the blonde waitress, her bare shoulder dipping down as she giggled.

    “Haymitch Abernathy is a dangerous man,” the gossips said. According to anyone you asked, the Mockingjay’s crew was one of the most notorious gangs around, but Abernathy didn’t quite look like a stone cold killer, however. In fact, he looked more like the town drunk that Gale remembered, leaning woozily back into his seat as the blonde left his table and headed for the bar. Gale watched her chat with the bartender, a smile spreading across her face as Peeta filled her tray with drinks. She returned to Haymitch’s table and Gale watched appreciatively the way her hips swayed under her black dress. She looked familiar, but he figured he’d remember a girl like her from the Seam. She was a knockout.
