    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

    "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.

    The year is 1926. Dipper Pines' first novel is a wild success, and at the age of 25, he worries he may already be washed up. Seeking inspiration, he moves to New York City, the cultural hub of the nation. But under Prohibition, culture and crime are intertwined, and New York is in the grip of the violent Cipher crime family. When Dipper has a run-in with the head of the family, none other than Bill Cipher himself, he begins to think that all of this may be a little more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    New York in the 1920’s was definitely a sight to behold. The parties were bigger, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.

    The city is the first thing anyone sees from an over crowded, shit-smelling boat. Filled with fleas and disease. It’s a wild promise of all the beauty and mystery in the world.

    Especially to a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman.

    *To the people who already read chapter four, I suggest you reread the chapter, My fabulous editor has made a lot of changes.*

    Summary

    ★★★★★New title!!!!! ★★★★★
    I guess there were some people even New York couldn't handle.
    Bill Cipher was undoubtedly one of those people.

    It is the year 1922, and Dipper and Mabel Pines are moving to New York to stay with their Great Uncles. Dipper is excited to finally be back to the city - full of mystery and danger. The big Apple is the perfect place to find just the right amount of adventure.

    That is, it would be if it didn't happen to be the domain of a certain mob boss who attracts trouble like a moth to a burning building.

    Bill Cipher. Mass murder, psychopath, and deadliest person in the city.

    And through various circumstances he also happens to be Dipper's employer.

    One wrong move could lead to Dipper, and his family's death. But what happens when, against all odds, Dipper begins to fall for Bill?

    Let's just say, it probably won't be pleasant for either party.
