    Summary

    Out here we had always got by with minimum mods: a cutting module and the standard utility circuits, plus a few weapons and defenses. Nothing big, just what you'd need to take out a wolfry or keep a raider from getting you. And then the fuckers came out of the sky, decked from eyes to toes – and the real joke was that they acted like they thought they were the human ones. Romebots, we called them.

    Science fiction futuristic cyborg AU remix of The Eagle/Eagle of the Ninth, movie/book fusion.

    Summary

    The merchant, Gnaeus, who had sold Marcus this property, had spoken of a solid main building, of well-kept pens and fertile soil, all newly abandoned by deceitful tenants and only cheap because he was tired of the whole business and wanted the land off his hands for good. He had talked of neighbours and a village nearby with opportunities of trade, but he had entirely failed to mention that the house lay deep in tribal country.

    Summary

    Marcus Aquila is an undercover Metropolitan police officer. His assignment is to infiltrate a slave-trafficking organisation which trades in men, bought and sold to fight in cages, sometimes to the death. When he makes the impulsive decision to intervene during a 'kill fight' involving a fierce young fighter called Esca, Marcus inadvertently finds himself the owner of his very own slave. Now Marcus has to find a way to complete his assignment, as well as gaining Esca's trust, without blowing his cover. The question is, can he do it before the secrets and lies catch up with him, and Marcus loses everything?

    Summary

    A glory hole AU. Marcus and Esca have a series of encounters at a gay club. Marcus is too shy and embarrassed to ask for what he really wants - to be someone's bottom - but the anonymity of the glory hole allows him to fulfill his fantasy. Esca is all too willing to give Marcus what he wants and needs. (Alternating POV throughout the story)

    Summary

    The son of the man who lost the Eagle of the Ninth would never be allowed a first command of his very own fort, would he?

    Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

    But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have...

    They've been competing against each other for so long, Marcus can't even remember a time when their families weren't feuding, weren't busting their backs trying to take titles out of each other's hands. He can't remember when the name Esca wasn't something that frayed at his nerves, made him feel as frustrated as a riled horse
