    Summary

    Louisa Phillips, daughter of a once-rich family in a world where slavery is real, is scrambling to save her college scholarship before she’s thrown out on the street. The only one who can help her is the nameless golden-haired slave downstairs, who, despite his surprising knowledge of organic chemistry, is stuck building fences and scrubbing toilets for her father.

    Amid all-nighters full of secrets, his wounded amber eyes and rippling whip-scarred body draw her in like a lightning rod. But in her world, she’s forbidden from even being touched by him — and god knows she can’t stop at a touch.

    The boy may have been robbed of his name and whipped a thousand times, but he’s pulled too many strings to get to this place and take his revenge on the people who killed his mother and stole away his sister. And though the last thing he needs is an attachment, if he has to use his master’s spoiled daughter to get that revenge, fine. Except — damn — Louisa’s far from spoiled. She has a heart, and she’s learning to be brave. But as he and Louisa continue to collide, the only question is not if they’ll destroy each other, but when.

    Summary

    When Jerre's sheltered life in the quiet seaside village of Worthe is upended one chill autumn night, he's abruptly forced to leave the gentle innocence of his childhood behind. Captured and enslaved by the infamous Captain Arna Sindri, Jerre finds himself lost in a cruel world governed by strange creatures and unfathomable forces. He quickly comes to realize that his only hope for survival is to find some means of escape, no matter how impossible that might seem. With the help of his fellow prisoner, Emrik, Jerre is awoken to the existence of a mysterious power that he never before knew existed, smoldering just beyond his fingertips - magic.

    There is an old adage, according to Emrik: The world's strongest forces may arise from the smallest of places. Soon enough, Jerre will learn just how clearly those words ring true.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, Marcus bought Kallius as a slave. Four years ago, Kal ran away. Now they've run into each other again and have to negotiate the difference.

    --

    "It is you," Marcus said to Kallius' back, watching his shoulders stiffen.

    Kallius turned carefully, his shirt collar and cuffs still unbuttoned. He was still so pretty, as pretty as the night Marcus fucked him and then bought him from that seedy brothel, drunk and infatuated. "Marcus," Kallius said after a moment, saying Marcus's name for the first time, visibly swallowing the word master.

    Summary

    "It was like waving a wintergreen stick in the face of a starving man, then slowly sucking it in front of him, smiling smugly."

    Summary

    "Your previous owners," his new owner began.

    Hiruma wanted to know what he was good for, Sena guessed, and resolved to make himself sound useful by any means possible. He didn't kid himself that it would save him from whatever pain was in store for him, but maybe in the end Hiruma might decide not to kill him, if he had some long-term value.

    "They ever play you in a team?"

    What few pitiful examples of his own usefulness Sena had managed to gather now fell apart in the face of his confusion.

    "A sports team," said Hiruma impatiently.

    It wouldn't do to look too incredulous. If his master looked at his pathetic body and saw some cannon fodder for whatever sport he had in mind, Sena had to show willing.

    It must not have worked, because Hiruma gave a pleased little smirk. "Good, no one's seen you, then."

    Summary

    All her life, Ahsoka had been cast aside—the last one to be chosen as a padawan, nearly left for dead on a hostile planet by the Jedi Order. And Barriss’s betrayal, of course—shunned by the one institution that had always promised to stand by her. They’d called her a murderer, but what else was she now? Ahsoka had left the Jedi Order, but as Maul had pointed out, it really hadn’t been her choice...not really. Now, if she joined the fallen Sith Lord, she was no better than what they’d called her.
    But it was too late. She’d made her choice. And she relished in it.

    Ahsoka Tano never expected herself to turn to the Dark Side, but when Maul offers her his hand...she takes it. While Ahsoka and Maul's plans to conquer the galaxy come to fruition, three Jedi: Padmé, Obi-Wan, and Anakin, may just be the key to bringing back the Light to the galaxy...if they can survive the consuming Darkness first.

    Summary

    "'The fire before, the fire during, the fire after – which will be the fiercest? Pray, my children, that it will not be the fire after.'"

    As Tristan struggles to find the courage to follow his god's command, and Robin tries to find a middle ground between piety and disloyalty to his uncle, the two noblemen will be forced to confront the consequences of war . . . and the consequences of their own inaction.

    "It was a final, token gesture to the civilized scholar who spent his odd moments struggling over the fragmented passages in Petronius, trying to fill in the blanks.
