    Summary

    Steve hadn't known what to expect. Even with all his training he feels unprepared.

    Any presumptions and expectations he did have went down the drain at the sight of him... of the demon with those ice-cold eyes that watch him. One blink and then the demon is upon him, metal arm wrapped around his throat, like a lion pawing a mouse.

    The cold fingers against his pulse don't hurt.

    The demon portrays no evil intent, choosing to wrap its shadows around Steve's limbs as he leans his human form closer to the cadet, pink lips ghosting over the shell of Steve's ear as he breathes the human in.

    Steve's heart is racing so fast, so quick, it would have been hard for the demon not to have heard it, to have seen his weakness. But by then it's too late: the demon lets out a deafening scream, hair shadowing his eyes as he crumples to the floor.

    This is his chance.

    Steve's only chance.

    It's now or never.

    No regrets.

    Even if it is the most foolish decision Steve will ever make.

    Summary

    When Steve Rogers returns to Brooklyn, the marriage arranged for him having proven to be a sham, he is desperate; desperate to regain his footing in Society, desperate to secure a wealthy spouse capable of paying the costly treatments that keep his mother alive and settling his family's debts. But how is he to do that when people view him as nothing more than damaged goods, someone to be sneered at, ridiculed, looked down upon, or pitied at best?

    An opportunity presents itself when Lord Barnes, the renowned carefree Casanova of Brooklyn, forgets himself during one night of drunken stupor, sending Steve a letter that flouts all laws of common decency. An agreement is soon made: in return for Steve's discretion, Lord Barnes will pretend to court him, taking him to the most fancy events of the season where Steve can be introduced to potential suitors. It all works out perfectly, until Steve comes to understand that Lord Barnes is not as pompous and self-absorbed as he believed....

    Summary

    Two hundred years ago, a dark mage named the Red Merlin cast a curse on the Middle Kingdom: that every crown prince born to the royal family would die at the age of twenty one. Protected by another Merlin's sacrifice, for two hundred years, the royal family has had only daughters. Until the middle of one fateful night.

    When the protective spell finally runs out, the royal family is left with only this: a Crown Prince, doomed to die, a legend, and an enchanted sword in a stone.

    Summary

    "And these children that you spit on,
    As they try to change their worlds
    Are immune to your consultations.
    They're quite aware
    Of what they're going through."
    - David Bowie
