    Summary

    Laurent stilled when he heard his voice, and turned to look at him over his shoulder, his hand holding on to the latch. He’d already opened the door part of the way, and in the sliver of moonlight that shone through, he looked like the gilded icon of a saint, cold and remote, hewn from ivory and gold.

    He slipped out of the door. There was the sound of dead leaves and gravel crushed underfoot, and then nothing more. Not even the wind through the trees or the call of a nighttime bird.

    “Laurent?” Damen called, going after him.

    His lover was standing in the middle of the clearing, barefoot, wearing nothing but his rumpled bedclothes, head tilted up towards the sky and tension in the lines of his shoulders.

    Damen gripped his sword tighter, for a moment, and then he followed the line of Laurent’s gaze, and looked up.

    Above them, its tail arching through the heavens like a swathe of pale fire, a star was falling.

    Summary

    Traditionally a Prince of Akielos must enter a Selection when he comes of age, 25 young women are chosen from all over to vie for his hand in marriage. This time though the young men are invited as well and Damen is in well over his head. Especially when a golden haired Prince of Vere turns up late, is nothing but snarky and ill-tempered and Damen can't help but like him.

    Laurent doesn't want to be in Akielos at all, let alone in a competition to marry an Akielon Prince, but now that he is he thought it might at least be fun to mess with the competition for awhile before he gets sent home. And then he actually meets Prince Damianos and his world turns upside down.

    **Basically a mash-up AU of The Selection (by Kiera Cass) and The Bachelor

    Summary

    “Another blond, Damen, really?”

    Damen just grins and grabs Laurent’s wrist tight enough to bruise, hauling him outside like another piece of stolen treasure.

    Laurent gets captured by Akielon raiders and sold as a slave. Loosely based on Vikings.

    Summary

    Her lips were soft and tasted of vanilla. Jokaste had never believed that a woman’s mouth could truly taste like something until Lykaios, whose entire purpose in life was to be sweet.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a young prince, beautiful and fair as the first snowflakes but cold and heartless like a crystal glass. He was the heir of a great kingdom but, due to an ancient rule, he could not take the throne until he got married because of his young age, so he decided to challenge his suitors: they had to answer to three riddles, death was punishment and his hand was the price. Princes and princesses came from all over the world but any of them failed, it had become a dare to them to defeat the cold prince. They didn't care about him, they cared about fame and power. But when Damen, ousted prince of Akielos, came to Arles he couldn't help to immediately fall in love with the cruel beauty of Laurent, so he challenged him: not for foolishness, not for glory but for love.

    Summary

    Laurent must make a very pretty picture, trussed up like a palace pet fresh for the taking in the middle of the Akielon court. And, of course, because this is the final move of a sadistic chessmaster, Damianos is there. Prince-killer, gazing appraisingly upon him as he would regard a fine cut of meat.

    (In the wake of his uncle's coup, Laurent is sent to Akeilos as a bed slave)
