    Summary

    In which Bucky Barnes is secretly the writer of the highly successful Winter Storm romance trilogy.

     

    The first in the series, ‘Snow Storm’, spins an engaging yarn about a trio of Cold War spies, Daisy Spencer, Richard Daniels and the roguish Jack Frost. If Nicholas Sparks, EL James and nine hundred and ninety-eight monkeys sat at MacBook Pros for a year, they could only hope to produce something as raunchy and atmospheric as ‘Snow Storm’. Reportedly turned down by the major romance publishing houses, indie publisher Salt Shaker took it on and, through word of mouth, some inventive hashtags and the allure of an elusive, introverted author who refuses to give interviews, it became the most popular novel of 2015.

    Summary

    Yuri is waiting for him in baggage claim at Pulkovo, clad in a clingy Babymetal t-shirt and dark skinny jeans. He’s a little taller, but not by much; it seems to be his destiny to remain short, though he has filled out a little. He’s still lithe as hell, which sometimes annoys Otabek (usually in competitions, because no one human should be that flexible), but there’s a bit more definition to his chest and upper arms. His hair is longer, to his shoulders now, and he has it pulled back in a messy French braid.

    Otabek swallows hard.

    This is a story about boys, cats, dogs, birds, Japanese food, kvass, Ramadan, video games, dates (the fruit), and I suppose there's ice skating in there somewhere.

    Summary

    Eric Bittle's To-Do List:

    1.) Frame Masters in Library and Information Science diploma and send to Mama, because she never understood the lack of sleep and abuse of caffeine, but she sent cookbooks and money for good chocolate, bless her.
    2.) Throw away every last highlighted article, graded paper, and syllabus, because they are no longer needed, thank the sweet Lord.
    3.) Promote the library's new periodic reading series, because it wasn't the capstone project for nothing.
    4.) Harass Boston Bruins star Jack Zimmermann into taking a picture for @BPLWestEnd to promote the reading of his new children's book, Jacky's Bad Days.
    5.) Do not ogle Boston Bruins star Jack Zimmermann's ass.
    6.) Fail step five. Repeatedly.
