    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

    Raheed is bhanak, a "slave soldier" who was bought, educated, and trained by the Mulli empire to pillage and conquer surrounding nations. When stationed in the rural town of Khafa, befriends an odd beggar boy, Asan, who lacks both speech and hearing. Together, Raheed and Asan craft a rudimentary sign language to communicate, at least before Raheed is whisked away to war. After witnessing the death and horror of battle, Raheed returns several years later no longer the carefree boy from before-- but then again, Asan is not left unscarred by his own experiences either. Raheed decides to take Asan back to the capital with him, where Asan can work as a servant to earn his keep while Raheed advances his position in the military. A fierce yet complicated bond grows between them, though neither sees it the same way as the other. Eventually, it is not just their loyalties to a nation that is tested, but also their loyalty to one another. M/M and M/F

    Summary

    A few months before Anereth is due to start attending school in the capital, he receives an unexpected birthday present in the form of a personal slave. And it's not that he doesn't see the advantages of having one, but he has books to read and spells to study, and there's just not a lot of time to concern himself with strangely unenthusiastic bed slaves.

    Unfortunately, said bed slave does not do well being ignored, or being touched, or being a bed slave at all. And Anereth quickly realizes he will have to do something about that, because while he's not sure how to feel about having to deal with a personal slave, he knows he doesn't want to have to deal with a dead one.

    (Backstory; could also be read on its own)
