    “I just thought you might go pay a visit," his mother suggested.

    “Me?” Q asked, aghast. “Pay a visit?”

    “He must be starved for proper gentleman company, now that he’s settled in so far from London--”

    “I am far from proper gentleman company.”

    “--and perhaps if you befriended him he could introduce you to some nice heiresses.”

    “Heiresses?” Q repeated, baffled and horrified. “What in the world would I do with heiresses?”

    Summary

    John Sheppard is determined to bring to ruin the villainous McKay family. But young (ok, youngish) Rodney interferes with his plans. Okay, so this is what comes of reading the Harlequin SGA website which triggers memories of reading a thousand Regency/Historical novels as an impressionable youngster (**eek**, no wonder I'm twisted). The result is this complete and utter cliche. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of any of the historical/british terms and settings depicted in this story. They are from my fuzzy memory of romance novels. Nuff said.

    “Say you forgive me,” Erik whispered, his breath warm against the skin of Charles’ neck.

    Charles stood quietly by the window, looking past their reflections out into the yard.

    “You made your feelings quite clear,” he said, stepping away from Erik.

    Erik grasped his wrist hard, refusing to let Charles walk away.

     

    “Please.”

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a partner.
    Less universally acknowledged is that a single man in possession of very little in the way of fortune may be in want of a partner as well, but John Watson had little time or energy to devote to his own wants or needs...

     

     

    Enter one Mr Holmes...

    Please note that I gleefully take great liberties with the laws governing same sex relationships and how they are seen in the Regency Era. As in, it is not an issue at all in this story. At all.
