    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Summary

    The Thawnes are the cream of Central City society; wealthy, powerful, and numerous. Eobard Thawne, head of the family, loves his cousin Eddie enough to allow his decidedly middle-class pursuits – but when Eddie asks permission to leave the family and marry Iris West, that’s a bridge too far. Eobard has to lay down the law for the sake of all the other Thawnes: either Iris will pay Eddie’s stringent life-price, or there will be no marriage!

    Barry Allen owes the West family everything – they took him in after he was orphaned, and looked after him as if he were their own. He’s not going to stand idly by while some pretentious blueblood blocks his adopted sister’s path to happiness. But when Eobard Thawne offers him a deal to make it possible, will Barry be able to keep up his end of the bargain?
