    Summary

    - Denerim. The city of tears, the city of thieves, of sex, of death, of love, of despair. The city of magic. The city where there were more sirens than birdcalls, more TEMPLAR officers than civilians, more apostates than registered mages. Where dreams of success came to die, and realities of dark fantasies and desires came alive. -

    Cullen Rutherford is a disgraced ex-TEMPLAR, now a Private Detective in one of the most notorious cities in all of Thedas. Ready to give up his ties to his former life and forget all the atrocities he once performed in the name of justice, all his plans are shattered by the arrival of an old friend with a new mission for him. But can he solve this mystery before someone else uses it to tear down the TEMPLAR order, and throw Denerim into chaos?

    (Pretty much contains all the main characters from the Dragon Age universe)

    Summary

    "Shut up, you're perfect," Lydia said, and pressed her lips to the space between Cora's breasts. "I won't allow anyone to insult my mate like that."

     

    Cora pulled her close, kissing her hair so Lydia wouldn't see her expression. Lydia threw the word around like she didn't know what it meant sometimes. Mates got married and had children. They didn't meet in secret in a dirty speakeasy, to fuck before someone noticed they were gone. Some rich boy would marry Lydia eventually and she'd disappear from Cora's life. She didn't mind it, so long as she didn't think about it. She was a female alpha, a mistake of genetics. Alpha girls didn’t have mates, certainly not Lydia Martin, with half of Beacon Hills as a dowry. As long as she didn't think of it, she could enjoy what she had, Lydia's sweet scent mixing with hers, that beautiful voice begging for her touch.
