    Summary

    AU 1920's | She was intoxicated by the pale-skinned Dame, blood diamonds swirling in the crystalline glass clutched in her hands, dark locks pinned back in a carefully structured up do. Kara watched her quietly, nursing the foot juice to her chest as the Jane continued to give him the icy-mitt, the he-man proceeded as though undeterred.

    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.

    Summary

    Hanzo didn't know what to expect when he left Japan, but with his brother at this side, he would do anything to keep him safe. Even leave everything he knew, loved, and understood behind. Fleeing to California seemed like an extraordinarily outlandish idea, but his brother assured him that the southwest was a land of mystery, beauty, and romance--at least that's what his novels told him. He doesn't want to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life, so without hesitation, Genji closes his eyes before the train station's map, points, and tells his brother that's their destination. A little town out in the desert, away from the lights and busy streets of Los Angeles, where they'll start anew.

    Summary

    The streetcars weren’t particularly crowded this time of day. There was even a seat available as Yuri got on and he debated taking it. Most days, he would have been right on it, but sitting down seemed like a losing proposition today.

    Betting against gravity is always bad money. Yuri snorted under his breath as the words he’d heard his grandfather say so many times ran through his head. He used to repeat the phrase through giggles when he was younger like it was the best joke he’d ever heard. The idea seemed so obvious as to be absurd. Of course gravity always won.

    The absurdity of it had worn off some with age, since Yuri had discovered too many ways that gravity could pull at him for it to be quite so funny anymore.
