    Summary

    Mikaela is the captain of the Rosethorn ship, and is known and feared by nobles far and wide as the infamous Golden Fleece who steals riches unnoticed despite the heavy security they have layered.

    ... Or maybe not.

    Summary

    A novel written by a Lady

    ~ It is a Galactic truth that a single dark knight of the First Order with both fortune and family connexions… must be in want of a wife. ~

    ----------------

    Miss Rey Kenobi is the orphaned daughter of a respectable gentleman in the county of Jakkushire.

    She faces an uncertain future due to the family estate being entailed away from the female line upon the death of her aging grandfather, Sir Obiwan Kenobi. With no dowry or brothers, she has only her good name to recommend her. Rey is an independent young lady who is intent on remaining unmarried and becoming a Jedi. This greatly vexes her aunt Mrs Kanata, who would prefer to see her niece well-settled with an eligible husband.

    Rey’s provincial life starts to unravel at an opulent society ball when she meets the handsome and “forceful” Mr Ren of Coruscant, who takes a fancy to the ‘spirited’ Miss Kenobi.

    Star Wars AU set in the Regency Period Drama style of Jane Austen

    Summary

    A Regency-flavoured, arranged-marriage Washington/Hamilton slow burn AU born out of an extended thought experiment about kinship and matriarchy. Yeah, I don't know either. But please remember why we're here: Washington in a frock coat, on a giant white horse, sexually charged waltzes, and sniping!

    CAVEAT EMPTOR: Updates every couple of days. The world-building here is fairly extensive, the misandry very real, and the burn exceedingly slow. If that doesn't sound appealing, this fic probably isn't for you.

    Summary

    “I have one thing left to stake,” Slade said triumphantly. “M’nephew, the brat, no blood of mine but still the law says I’m his guardian for the next four months, till Richard reaches twenty-one. Still mine to bet, then! Cover my wager, yes? Who’ll have the boy? Who’ll cover?”

    Richard never thought his future would be dictated by a game of Hazard and a reckless journey to Gretna Green, but the dice have been cast and he must wait for them to fall - even when the stakes include his heart.

    Inspired by and fused with Georgette Heyer's "Hazard."

    Summary

    England, 1812. For as long as he can remember, Levi Ackerman works as a physician in the dozy little town of Brighthampton.

    Summary

    Duchess Maranel Thrask is one of the few remaining nobles of her nation Horuset following its capitulation to its southern neighbor, Dromund Kaas, at the end of the King’s War. Upon her parents’ untimely death, the child duchess was sent to live with her Kaasian uncle, Duke Vikram Baras, her fortune frozen and her resource-rich lands overseen by Horusetian loyalists until she reaches the age of majority, twenty-five.

    Duke Baras is desperate to lay hands on his niece’s fortune and lands. The only way around the will is marriage, which would transfer the duchess’s property to her husband. Baras recruits Malavai Quinn, the new Earl of Balmorra, who inherited the title and his father’s estate-crippling gambling debts to Baras. Lord Quinn reluctantly agrees to woo Maranel and entail the Thrask estate on Baras in exchange for forgiving the debt.

    As her twenty-fourth birthday passes, Maranel fights to protect herself from Baras while dealing with her growing feelings for the earl. Quinn, falls for the quick-witted duchess and must choose between the woman he loves and duty to his family. At the center of it all is Duke Baras, who manipulates a conspiracy beyond what either Maranel or Quinn could ever suspect.

    Summary

    A cruel betrayal has since turned Lord Ren into one of London's most notorious rakes. Contenting himself to a life of debauchery, the Earl of Alderaan has long been viewed by marriageable society as a lost cause. Yet a chance encounter with an orphaned pickpocket proves that love may be found in the most unexpected of places, and that it is never too late to repair a broken heart.

    [excerpt]:
    "She looks smart and quick, Ren. If anyone could do it, I would bet on you."

    Ren laughed, the sound of it slightly harsh and foreign. "What, you would have me teach her how to be a scullery maid?"

    Hux shook his head. "Of course not. Perhaps you could introduce her to the ways of the gentry. Work to improve her manner and her dress. With your guidance, and the resources at your disposal, I wouldn't be surprised if you could transform this pickpocket into a lady."

    Ren snorted. "Yes. She is the model of a docile, educated and refined woman."

    "You have no desire to bed her. Perhaps an interaction with the fairer sex without such distractions would make you appreciate them in a different manner."

    Hux, ever the strategist, dared him with a gleam in his eyes. "Unless you're not up to the challenge."
