    Summary

    The year is 1941. War rages across the Atlantic, but at home the warmly lit dance halls are a stark contrast to the cold, fearful blackouts taking place across Europe. It’s in one such dance hall that jazz pianist Soul Evans meets hepcat Maka Albarn, and the two share a whirlwind romance just months before the United States gets pulled into the deadliest conflict in world history. Neither of them will make it out of the war unscathed, but they might just make it out together.

    Until he learned that the guy he was so desperate to marry was not only an alien Prince but the leader of an interstellar crime syndicate known and feared across Earth as The Chitauri...

    Or

    Nick Fury is a dick and his super-secret boy-band of super-heroes need to work on their public relations skills; who the fuck is Howard Stark, anyway, and why won’t he quit staring?

    Summary

    Praetor Jason of the Twelfth Legion Fulminata has never kept a slave in his life, but with his arch-enemy Octavian having just been crowned Emperor of Rome, his already delicate reputation will be put at stake if he keeps refusing. Besides, since the dark-eyed young gladiator from Greece in question has never lost a mock battle since he was sold, his safety is ensured, surely. And Jason swears to treat him with the kind of common dignity that no other master would agree to – so it wouldn’t go against his beliefs if he were to take Nico under his wing, would it?
