    Summary

    In the post-Trojan War Bronze Age of ancient Greek myth, an enigmatic new God with a gift for deduction is sent to put a stop to the lifesaving ways of a warrior-prince with healing hands. But suddenly Prince Iaon's moved in with the Consulting God and they've started solving crimes together. And what follows after that is... most unexpected.

    Warning! Contains: a lot of Greek wine, embedded casefic, explicit industrial-strength smut (starting around ch. 19), the birth of firearms discipline and other freeform but entirely justified anachronism, body parts (some still splendidly, if not magnificently, in use), and True Love tested to destruction… and final triumph.

    Last updated, May 14: Ch. 35, "Of an Overnight Stay and a House Incorrectly Named." In the lavish home of the prime suspects in the ancient world's most notorious serial murders, the Consulting God and Iaon stake everything on an undercover operation that will either reveal the hidden evidence they seek, or expose them both to danger deadlier than anything they've faced before....

    Summary

    Yugi Mutou believed what the golden box described.

    One wish. She could have one wish.

    What Yugi wanted more than anything was a friend.

    What the girl didn't anticipate when she finished the Millennium Puzzle, though, was that not only would her wish come true, but its completion would set the girl on a path of life altering discovery, changing the course of her future and bearing sway over the fates of those most important in her life, in particular, a certain enigma spirit.

    Summary

    Captain Wei Shun's offer of marriage to Cheng Lan was humiliatingly rejected in front of all members of the royal court. That was ten years ago. Now, the king has given a newly victorious General Wei Shun a special reward for his military service - a slave named Cheng Lan. Lan was born to be a high ranking scholar-official within the king's court. When accusations of treason destroy his family and he is reduced to slavery, his last hope is a childhood friend who's love he once scorned.

    Shun's success and popularity has seen him more than one jealous rival in court. The events that lead to Lan's family's arrest and execution are fast catching up with him. They will need to negotiate the treachery of the royal court together - if they are to survive.

    NOW COMPLETE. Volume 2 is up! You can read When the Plum Blossoms Bloom here.

    Summary

    A Roman general reunites with his best friend and secret lover, a Roman lawyer. Later that evening, the men share the delights of Gaius's blond pleasure slave, Nicomedes.

    February is an 'extra' story featuring characters from the historical fantasy series, Dominus. Events in February take place four years earlier than the events in Dominus (Book 1 of the Dominus Series). February is the first story of the new Dominus Calendar Series.

    Dominus is a historical fantasy saga with sex, plot twists, angst, humor, love and intrigue. While nearly all details are historically accurate and the story is tied to major historical events and prevailing cultural attitudes during the reign of the Emperor Trajan (AD 98-117), the tale is entirely fictional and the dialogue is deliberately modern in flavor. This is a complete three scene short story.

    For information about more stories in the Calendar Series, the Dominus series, character profiles, story snippets and more, check out the Dominus blog at: http://jpkenwood.com

    Summary

    There was a reason why the heaven is far up above our hands to be reached. There was ancient story, horrible and frightful that no deity would ever want to endure. And yet those who came back after their visit to Idon, seemed more... happier? Happier and content that they are deities with influence and immortality yet they will give it up, for the one they love?

    Not for Sky, No. Sky would rather paint colors and hues, and read and sing. she loved reading the story of Nontu and Nomon, the first Gods. But the lord and lady of war, the two idiot are too loud Sky couldn`t focus.
    Until she saw the beautiful earth, laughing in glee, mirth wrinkling the top of her nose and the sides of her eyes, mouth split grinning. And she was dancing and bouncing flawlessly in the water.

    How will the Sky woo the elusive Earth?

    or the AU where they are ancient deities, gods and goddesses.

    Where Clarke is the Sky and Lexa is the Earth.

    Summary

    I've been fascinated by ancient Rome since childhood. In a past-life reading, I was told that my current love was once a Roman soldier, and, my mind being as random as it is, I got to thinking about other people from this lifetime living in that era of history. It morphed into this strange little one-shot. Each time I read it, I imagine a different New Kid as Decimus (see previous point about my mind being random). I like stories where you can read into it in whichever way makes you happiest, so I intentionally left Decimus open; imagine him however you wish. Story is from Decimus' point of view.

    Why? Because New Kids. As Roman soldiers.

    I do not condone kidnapping, slavery, non-con, or underage anything. In that period of history, all those things happened; Apple makes the choice she makes because the wife of a soldier usually led a slightly better life than a slave. Context is key, people.

    I did minimal research for this story, so historical inaccuracies are probable.

    I don't know the characters in real life, the story is fiction, and I make no money from said story.

    Summary

    Flavia Aquila, daughter of the primus pilum of the ill-fated Ninth Legion, was herself a centurion — until she was wounded at Isca Dumnonorium and her secret discovered. Nearly two years later, she rides into the wild North of Britannia to learn what happened to her father, his Legion, and its Eagle standard. Alongside her rides Esca, the fierce, loyal, and strangely beautiful slave whose life she saved at the Games at Calleva and whom her uncle bought for her. Beyond the Wall, their relationship will change profoundly — and Flavia will learn what became of her father and his men.
