    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

    When Kyrina has sewn together the bright braids of Jokaste’s hair, curled the locks beside her jaw and pinned up the trailing hairs at the back of her neck, she puts her lips to her lady’s ear and says, “Prince Kastor met with the Veretian Ambassador last night.”

    Summary

    When Damen was about to turn thirty, Laurent made the mistake of asking Damen what he wanted for his birthday when he was post-coital and not entirely there.

    “Damen,” she said. “What do you want for your birthday?”

    “Lesbians,” Damen said.

    Summary

    Instead of being allowed to take the throne of Vere as the last son of the dead king, Laurent is offered up in marriage to a prince from another nation. Akielons are a wealthy and powerful nation, even if their leadership isn't united. They're divided into nomadic Clans and Damianos is one of the most popular leaders.
    Having never met him before the wedding, Laurent goes into this union without much hope for it working out well for him.

    Art for the story is made by linecrosser! It's super amazing. You can see it here.

    Summary

    They were married on the battlefield.

    After each of the Crown Princes of Akielos and Vere had fallen once, and each had allowed the other to arise, Auguste of Vere hesitated before resuming his attack, and said, “There is another way.” He spoke Akielon, so he clearly wanted to be understood by his enemy; his accent was heavy.

    Summary

    Since his miraculous escape from the assassination attempt that saw almost his entire family dead and his uncle on the throne, Laurent has spent the past ten years in hiding, as a member of a witches’ coven, honing his magic and trying to find a way to restore Auguste to the throne of Vere.

    Six of those ten years have been spent with Damen at his side, bound to him by deep an ancient magic, first as an ally and then as a lover.

    When Theomedes dies, their lives are thrown into upheaval: it is decreed that the new ruler of Akielos will be, among those who bear Theomedes’ blood, the first one to find the red stone that represents the Power of Akielos, which was thrown to the heavens and has brought down a star to the earth with it as it fell.

    Together, they embark on a quest to find the stone, in a race against Kastor, but they are not the only ones searching, for it is said that whoever consumes the heart of a living star will gain powers beyond all reckoning.

    Summary

    His uncle smiles pleasantly, and Laurent continues to stare at him. “I’ve bought out another company.”

    Laurent raises a brow. “And that affects me how?”

    “This merger forces me to transfer to a new building,” his uncle explains. “We’re moving.”

    Laurent doesn’t physically react to this news, but his mind seems to stutter to a halt before picking up speed, his thoughts shifting from one to the next in rapid succession.

    He isn’t appalled at the thought of moving, the likely outcome of such a thing could mean that he would be transferring schools, which in and of itself is a relief. But he can’t figure out the expression on his uncle’s face, which is more telling than if he’d outwardly expressed his true emotions.

    “Okay. To where?”

    “Akielos. The capital.”

    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

    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)
