    Summary

    Charles is the playboy publisher of an international English language newspaper based in Rome, and Erik is one of the paper's best reporters. They both have bigger things to worry about than bylines, though, especially now that Erik is so close to finding the man he's been chasing for the past ten years.

    Summary

    Before he dies, The Kapok Kid gives his best friend Johnny Nicholls a name and an address in South East England. After the HMS Ulysses sinks, and the Kid dies, Johnny goes to Henley. What will he find there?

    Johnny straightened the hem of his shirt and his scuffed trousers, wishing he could straighten his nerves out just as easily.

    “Don’t be a soppy mess, Johnny boy” he heard the Kid’s aristocratic drawl in his head. “Your old Scots stubbornness will get you through this all right. If you muck up now, you and I will be having words in heaven when you get here!”

    In heaven. Of course, the Kapok Kid was sure he’d end up in heaven.

    Fighting down the impulse to laugh once more, Johnny turned as the door opened.

    Summary

    Gilbert shrugs, an uneasy slide of his shoulders. He doesn't resist the pull of France's hands, following him down the hall and into the kitchen. "I don't know. West won't see me, I thought I'd head for Konigsburg, get my bearings and wait for... whatever." It's an old tactic, time-worn for Nations, to retreat to the capital, the heart, in times of trouble. The last stronghold for Prussia, and they both know it.

    Summary

    Immediately post-WWII, Sebastian Moran finds himself in a bit of a jam. The ex-Colonel can either stay locked up in his new home, a dingy cell somewhere in London and patiently wait for his court martial and subsequent execution. Or he can take the mysterious, dark haired stranger that just showed up on his offer of a six month 'employment contract'. A short term employment contract with a rather large payout at the end, to be specific. Adrift without 'The War', Sebastian agrees to the man's terms, if only to give himself a purpose. And purpose he finds, but not at all in the ways he expected.

    Summary

    It’s 1947. Dean is an ex-marine fighting crime and a very different sort of war to the one he faced in the Pacific as a detective on the streets of LA. This city isn’t all the glitz and glamor it’s made out to be, however, and Dean finds himself tugged in to a world of life-threatening unknowns when Daphne Novak’s body is discovered. Castiel Novak, her husband, was one of Dean’s battalion mates in the war, and he's just as deadly and dangerous as he was two years ago when he saved Dean’s life during the Battle of Okinawa. Except now he’s wanted for his wife’s murder, and Dean just doesn’t believe Cas is capable of that.

    Is Cas really who he says he is, though? And what will Dean have to sacrifice in order to repay the debt he feels he owes?

    Summary

    If Ludwig had ever told anyone how he thought he would meet the person he would fall in love with—which though he thought about it often enough he would have walked off a cliff before telling anyone his fantasies—it certainly would not have been like this.

    Their meeting would have been over coffee, or somewhere with candlelight, or on the beach, waves gently crashing behind them and with a silly straw hat blowing away in the wind involved. It would not have been a collision in a back alley, the other man suddenly in his arms when they both turned the same corner.

    "Enough, West. Just accept it. This is our fate." Crimson eyes that normally held the spirit of a roaring fire had now dimmed to a flickering glow. World War 2 was over and unlike Germany, he hadn't put up a fight. He knew a lost battle when he saw one. They had done some unforgivable things and now they were to receive their punishments. "Don't worry, we will meet again."
