    Summary

    There was pain and bright light as Kastor woke up. He blinked up at a familiar ceiling that he hadn’t seen in months. This was the ceiling of his prince’s quarters, not the king’s rooms he had slept in over the last few months. Trying to process what was happening, he pressed his hand onto his right side. Fuck, the pain made it almost impossible for him to string a sensible thought together in his head.
    ‘I died.’ The thought shot through his brain with a startling clarity. ‘By the ancestors, I died.’ Slowly, he sat up. Why was he hurting so much when he was dead? Wasn’t death supposed to be peaceful? Was this his divine punishment for killing his own father, selling his brother as a slave to the enemy and then trying to kill him? Would he have to bear with the pain of being run through by a sword for all of eternity? He hoped not.

    Summary

    A few months after the death of Egeria Vallis, Theomedes Vallis finally marries his mistress, Hypermenestra. The marriage causes the legitimacy of Damianos Vallis as the heir of Ios Corp. to be questioned since his older brother, Kastor, is now legally the first born child. To add insult to injury, Damianos' fiancé, Jokaste, has been cheating on him with his brother for months which he finds out through the front page headlines and viral tweets from every single news outlet in Akielos and Vere.

    When Laurent de Vere, professional sugar baby, caught wind of Damianos Vallis' recent hobby of wallowing in sorrow at the VIP lounge of an exclusive club, he makes it his mission to make the future CEO of Ios Corp., the richest man in Akielos, his.

    Summary

    He takes a breath and fixes truly aggrieved eyes on Laurent. “While we investigate, I need you to be away from the Arles Palace."

    "What?" Laurent's heart drops, "But--"

    "You trust me, don't you, Lo?" Auguste says, urgently, "I need to keep you safe."

    "Brother--"

    "You are second in line for the throne. If anything has to happen to me, you are the only person I'm willing to entrust with Vere. Uncle would ruin her," he says, softly, in a rush. "I need you safe, and the only place you'll be safe is away from Vere. Away from anybody who can harm you."

    "Akielos," Laurent realizes, the answer startlingly clear by Auguste’s tone. “You mean to send me to Akielos.”

    Summary

    Laurent wakes screaming. He’s dying. He must be. It’s the only explanation he has for the utter agony, confusion and terror that he feels. His brain is splitting itself open, bits of it strewn across space and time. He’s twenty one, in Arles, finally crowned. He’s fourteen, at Chastillon, on his knees for his uncle. He’s twenty, in Ios, watching a blade sink into Damen’s side. He’s sixteen, all alone, dreaming of revenge.

    Last night Laurent had thrust his arm at Damen, “attend me,” he had commanded, as if Damen weren’t a king in his own right. Last night, Uncle had sat on his bed, played chess with him. “I will always have time for you,” he had reassured Laurent, “even though Auguste has outgrown you.”

    Laurent leans to the side and vomits, violently. His fingers shake as he pushes his hair back, slowly, the room spins into focus. His hair is shorter than he remembers, Damen likes it long. His hair is exactly the same, cut by his nursemaid once a month.

    He is thirteen, at Marlas, and he knows everything.

    Summary

    In Part One, beginning at Marlas, Auguste lives and takes Damen hostage. The immediate attraction between them is complicated by the presence of Laurent and Nikandros, and leads to a romp across the high seas to the den of thieves, pirates and whores that is the island of Paradiso. Our heroes, in various disguises from Pets to islanders, experience treachery, kidnapping, and the discovery of a long lost relative. Along the way, Auguste yearns for Damen, Damen reconciles with Nik, Laurent has his first crush and learns he is much more than a bookish boy.

    Part Two moves ahead four years. The landscape will start in Paradiso, move on to Marlas, Ios and Arles. Part Three will conclude in the dangerous court of the Vaskian Empress. This is a tale of adventure, intrigue and heroics, with side dishes of pining and sweet slow burns, with Damen and Laurent having one that simmers long before igniting.

    Summary

    "Look around you, Damianos. The world is all about runes. It doesn't matter how advanced our technology is, how high skyscrapers are, how many laboratories or factories we build. It doesn't matter how well behaved and disciplined the army is or how lethal we can make our weapons. What does matter are the runes and who is able to use them. Because contrary to what you may think, it's magic that runs this world, not technology. The abilities of our machinery, the fate of this society, even our own existence - it's all written in runes. So whoever is able to control the oldest runes, has the world on its knees."

    Summary

    Laurent was still standing at the bookshelf, his fingers grazing the edge of one of the shelves near eye-level, seemingly scanning the array of titles like that was what he was here for. As he slowly walked, following the parallel lines of the shelves, the angle of him changed, allowing Damen to take in the neat way his sweater was tucked into his pants, the way the belt there accentuated the waist that Damen knew was underneath all those layers, the waist that was so slight in comparison with the build of his illusionary-worthy shoulders, the wisps of hair escaping the low ponytail his hair was pulled into, dancing around the elegant column of his neck like a nonexistent necklace, and the ridiculous length of his eyelashes as the, however briefly, rested on the apples of his cheeks for a blink.

    “I, however, am not my uncle,” Laurent continued, his fingers hesitating over a well-used copy of 'Il barone rampante' by Italo Calvino. “Because of that, I will not make his mistake in my counter-offer to you.”

    “Counter-offer?”

    “Work for me instead,” Laurent said.

    Summary

    Beyond fed up with the cryptic bullshit which was beginning to occur far too frequently, Laurent made his way to Damen’s apartment, to lay it all out. After using the spare key he kept for emergencies, the absolute last thing he expected to find was his boyfriend sat half naked on the couch in between two strippers, one woman and a man. Their outfits rivalled the slutty ass costume Jokaste was wearing beside him.

    Laurent was too furious to dwell on the fact that they all had some strange goth thing going on.

    He remembered Damen chasing after him in a panic, his voice was muffled by Laurent’s heart which felt like it was going to beat right out of his chest.

    OR

    Laurent is convinced he just caught Damen cheating, but everything is far from what it seems.

    On the verge of war between the human kingdom of Vere and the Fey realm of Akielos, a treaty is struck - Prince Laurent of Vere and Prince Damianos of Akielos will wed in order to solidify a historic alliance and peace.

But who needs honesty in an alliance when you can have political intrigue and attempted murder?

    Summary

    “Do you?” Laurent asks, running his fingers over the swell of Damen’s cupid's bow, committing the feel of it to memory, in case it’s his last chance. “Love me. Do you?”
    *
    When you've been friends for decades, and fucking for years, it's inevitable to fall in love, to fall in deep.

    But when you've been friends for years, and not wanted to risk it all, what happens when you finally try to fly?

    Summary

    Damen was too trusting. Laurent had known the moment he had bared his neck to him at the side of the road after realizing that he was a werewolf. However, he thought that this was a temporary lapse in judgement. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
    Damen kneeled between his legs and gently patched him up where his uncle’s goons had tried to kill him. The human had his hands on Laurent’s thigh, head dangerously close to his cock and scent all sweet, inviting and worried.
    Fuck. The werewolf closed his eyes and tried to think of his traitorous uncle. It didn’t work very well, especially when Damen started wrapping his thigh in a bandage.
    “Is this too firm? Do I hurt you?” He asked when he took notice of Laurent’s labored breathing.
    “No, it’s fine. Just get it over with,” he growled and Damen smiled up at him wryly.
    “I’ll do my best, alpha.” Not even the sarcasm in his voice could make Laurent stop flashing his eyes. He expected the human to scramble away in fear, but instead Damen leaned even closer. “Wow, that’s cool. Can you do it again?”
