    Summary

    "...Why, my dear husband...I am glad to think that in your eyes, I am a woman of more beauty than a goddess. But I pray tell, which goddess might you mean? Lovely Aphrodite?" Emilia flashed a coy smile into the looking glass and silently praised herself, in pleasurable guilt, for the alluring tones she had managed to achieve in her voice. "Ay, you flatter me much."

    The story of Othello and Desdemona is one of passion burning too strong-- of idle thoughts twisting into suspicions wild and imaginations raging with jealousy and fervent desire to be taken at one's chaste word. The story of Emilia and Iago is a quieter tale, of sinister machinations and a shared madness that sinks its thorny claws in deep and drags hapless souls together into a mire that is either love, or insanity, or hatred...or everything of nothing first created.

    Summary

    Когда Стив просыпается снова, поднимает голову с усовершенствованной больничной постели и говорит: – Не злись, пока я все не объясню, - Баки понимает, что грядет что-то плохое.
    Судя по тону его голоса, он втравился в очередную драку и ему подбили оба глаза, или он обнаружил гнездо Гидры и случайно позабыл рассказать Баки или Ревущим, что собрался вычистить его, или что по пути из магазина повстречал бродячего пса и скормил ему свою долю мяса на ужин, и теперь собирается есть вареную картошку и пустой хлеб, рассчитывая, что Баки съест свою долю мяса и не подавится.

    Summary

    Grant Ward has been working for years to keep Ward Enterprises out of the destructive hands of his older brother. Thanks to a clause in his grandfather’s will that gives voting shares to every Ward and the impending birth of a new nephew, however, Grant’s just about to lose the reins. He needs to even the odds – and quickly.

    Dr. Jemma Simmons has been working to find a cure to the rare disease that took her cousin’s life, but with dwindling donations to the university, she may never even get the chance. Attending the university’s mixer for potential donors is a long shot to getting her research funded, but she’s determined to try.

    After overhearing the pretty young scientist pitch her project, Grant decides to make a pitch of his own: he’ll fund her research over the next two years if she’ll agree to marry him long enough to wrest enough shares to keep the company out of Christian’s hands for good. It’s a deal neither of them can refuse, but in the end, they might just get more than they bargained for.

    Summary

    The newest Morgan Capitol’s power couple – the words echoed in her mind, and she really liked the sound of them. ‘But, have you actually thought this through?’ she asked when she was of a sound mind again. ‘This means we’ll be married. To each other’ she pursed her lips in disgust and Blake rolled his eyes at her.

    ‘Don’t let it go to your head. This marriage is nothing more than one of convenience, a tool to fast-track our careers. You could be the Chancellor in ten years with me by your side. I could be the Chancellor after you’

    -

    Clarke Griffin and Bellamy Blake accidently get married and decide to use their new power couple status as an advantage to their political careers.
