    Summary

    Yuuri Katsuki loves dragons. He has spent most of his life with dragons one way or another, hoping to serve the tsar he so admires and become a member of the tsar’s elite Konvoi: to wear the uniform and, from dragonback, protect the empire he now calls his home.
    Instead, he somehow ends up as a dragon scholar in the imperial nidus. Ground-crew. With a string of very public disasters to his name - including making a complete fool of himself in front of the imperial family.

    No matter what he loves, Tsar Viktor II’s first duty is to his empire, to try and avoid plunging his people back into a decades-long war that only just ended some time in his childhood. If that means long days, empty nights, and accepting a much-overdue gift of a highly-prized egg from the Emperor of Fusau so he can fly the dragon inside it rather than his own beloved Makkachin, so be it.
    Of course, he has to retrieve said dragon egg himself first, and who better to educate and accompany him on his journey than the eminent dragon scholar working in his own nidus who has so recently caught his attention?

    Summary

    Madeline Williams never expected to be attending a boarding school on a whole different continent just because her magic is a little more… difficult than the norm. She never expected to make friends that would last a lifetime. She never expected to find someone to love. And she never, ever expected to be caught up in events that would reach far beyond the walls of the school.

    Summary

    Elaine Kirkland has two small consolations when her Valentine’s dinner date goes disastrously wrong before they even make it to the table at the restaurant. The first is that she has alcohol to make it better, and the second is that the woman sitting beside her at the bar, whose date is arguing with Elaine's date, is a) gorgeous, and b) suffering with her.

    Summary

    Despite the words and faith of those around him, Arthur – once Kirkland, now Queen of Spades – cannot quite bring himself to believe in fate. For, if all things are destined, that would mean he is meant to love a political disaster just waiting to happen, and both their lives have been leading to this. (They call him Francis, and, oh, what an alluring disaster he is.)
