    Summary

    A few things have gone wrong since Yusuf woke up and his mother started crying and yelling it was a miracle.

    First, he has been told he doesn’t remember the past two years of his life.

    Second, a fae is stalking him.

    Third, said fae claims to be his boyfriend.

    Betrothed,” Nicolò, who has the name of a human but the ears and the eyes and the heart of a fae, corrects him with a patient smile. “As in, we are to be married.” Once, the words would have given Yusuf a heart attack. Now they just make him sigh.

    Summary

    Joe has been immortal for several months and can't complain too much. He and Nicky are living the good life on Malta--beautiful scenery, good food, plenty of sex, lots of time for his art. All of it is threatened, however, by Quynh's escape from the iron maiden, with Joe caught in the middle. But Nicky and the others are there, ready to see it through, and, hopefully, bring their family home once and for all.

    Summary

    “You were at the airport.” Nicolò’s heartbeat picks up as understanding creeps in. “Why?”

    Quynh rolls her eyes. “You know why,” she scoffs and points in the direction of Joe’s room. “Because he was supposed to be dead five hours ago, that’s why!”

    “No. No, no, no. Nicolò shakes his head, desperation tightening his throat. “No, that can’t be.”

    “It has to be.” She flips her hair over her shoulder. “So stop. Interfering.”

    Or Nicky is a guardian angel who accidentally saves Joe when he really wasn't supposed to. Now he can't stop.

    Summary

    Joe's always felt pulled to art, even art before his time. He's loved sitting in front of frescos, in caves covered in finger painting, in abandoned homes in front of art left behind, and drawing. When museums began to pop up almost everywhere, Nicky would join him, giving unofficial tours. A few places have hired him as an official tour guide.
    Or: Joe and Nicky spend time together in what seem like strange ways.

    Summary

    Joe’s favourite ochre scarf was there, on the floor.
    How was it possible? It was his favourite one.
    Nicolò picked it up and, before he could overthink things as usual, he brought it to his face.
    Joe’s smell was still there.
    Nicolò hid his face in it, trying to inhale as much of it as possible.
    Has he left it for me? He thought.

    No, surely.

    But maybe.

    Nicolò breathed deeply as it looked at the scarf again.
    He didn’t want that smell to disappear from it.
    And he wanted to see that jot of bright colour on the neck of the man he loved.

    But, but….

    ‘Stop overthinking things, you idiot’ he shouted out to himself as rushed to get ready to stop him.

     

    aka: after having struggled to find the words to ask him to stay, Nicky decides to be selfish, for once.

    Summary

    “Thank you so much,” the man breathed, laughing a little. Nicolò noticed his Italian had a slight foreign accent of some kind. “You just saved my life there, surely.”

    “Of course, it’s nothing,” Nicolò told him, attempting to shrug it off, but the man shook his head.

    “No, it’s not nothing. You saved me.” The man put a hand on his arm. “Let me bring you to my family’s home for a meal as a thank you, at least. They will want to show their appreciation somehow, no doubt.”

    Working-class sailor Nicolò meets Yusuf, the artist son of a rich merchant, when he saves Yusuf at the dock. They learn more about each other and begin a relationship that neither of them would have expected.

    Summary

    “He is fated to die today, the fourteenth of April in 2019.” Andromache tilted her head as she studied Yusuf’s body. “That is immutable. He has already died. But we could give him another chance at the day.”
    “Restart it?” Nile leaned forward eagerly. “We could warn him, or stop-”
    “No. He has to thwart death on his own terms, and it will hunt him throughout this process. He will repeat this day, with memory of those before it, and if at the end of seven days, he survives to April fifteenth with his soulmate at his side, he can live. If he dies on the seventh day, then that is his final death and time will progress from there. Is that understood?” 

    Joe is an art restoration technician who has been falling in love with Nicky, a baker near him, for the last two months. He's sure they're soulmates and is confident in their future together.
    The only catch is his death. At least he's got a spirit guide on his side to avoid it.

    As tensions about omega rights and protections rise and Nadira's season of courtship takes an unexpected turn, Joe is learning that first impressions are not always right. And that the person he never would have trusted in the past, might be the one man he will turn to now.

    Summary

     “There won’t be a next time, it’s just not working. None of the guys you have set me up with are right!”
    “Oh?” There’s a smirk in Celeste’s tone. “And what’s the right guy like?"
    He shouldn’t be listening. This is a private conversation about private matters and Joe was raised better than this, but he finds his feet glued to the floor, waiting for Nicolò’s answer.

    or; Joe is a starving aspiring artist who can't catch a break. Nicolò is a lounge singer at the fancy bar Joe and Booker go to when their rich friend Andy promises to pay for drinks. Joe is pretty much in love with him. One night, by chance, he overhears the man's extensive list of qualities his perfect guy needs to have. Now, Joe isn't a rich, punctual, emotionally stable millionaire; but for Nicolò, he could be.

    There’s Nicky.
