    Summary

    John Keats' career as a poet is on the very brink of taking off when he meets the aristocratic, irritating and very distracting Percy Shelley.  

    “Run, John,” said Shelley, taking his arm and yanking him down the stairs, two at a time. They pelted past the crowd at the bottom of the stairs and the footmen at the door and burst out onto the street, gasping and laughing.

    “How have you got so far in life without learning that the answer to "are you Lord Byron" is always "No, absolutely not"?” said Shelley.

    Summary

    When Andrei Razumovsky befriends the strange and lonely Crown Prince as a child, he does not realise the effect it will have on his life. Though the Empress Catherine hates their friendship and tries to seperate them, Andrei and Paul only grow closer - until Paul's marriage must be arranged.  

    “I am his subject, Your Majesty. My loyalty is a given,” Andrei says carefully.
    “You are my subject too, don’t forget.”
    “And yours, of course.”
    “You are a handsome one,” she says, as though this is something loathsome. “ Handsome ones are always faithless.” She cups his face in her hand, rings pressing into his cheek.
    What has my face to do with my faithfulness, he wants to say. He wills himself not to twist away.
    “You will not be his friend always,” she says, as though stating the inevitable. “Just remember that.”
