    Summary

    The drive over the Alps last night had been breathtaking. Sometimes it was nice just to get back to the road, feeling the gentle drift and tug of the turns, breaking and accelerating just the right amount. It had given her time to think about what she was going to do about Ben – Kylo Ren, she reminded herself – and she had decided she was just not going to acknowledge his presence. It would be easier that way, he wouldn’t get the wrong idea about the possibility of forgiveness. And she wouldn’t have to deal with any … complicated ... feelings.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The Loire valley in France is now a beautiful tourist destination, but a thousand years ago it was the site of death and destruction as anyone who could fought for a chunk of West Francia and Charlemagne's crumbled christian empire. Chance drops Rey and Kylo into the middle of the chaos, bound together by circumstance and the bonds of hatred they try to find a way back to the present. But if Rey finds it first she is determined to leave without him. She can't imagine the world will mind.

    Summary

    A modern-day retelling of Hades and Persephone;
    A loveless marriage forged in the face of war

    Chapter 5 Excerpt: "When Kylo finally worked up the courage to risk another sideways peek at his wife, he instantly regretted it. Given that she’d subsisted on unseasoned military rations for most of her adult life, one of the first things Kylo had noticed about Rey had been her gusto for properly prepared food… But this morning, everything about the way she ate felt erotic; every nibble and every little lick – the white of her teeth, the pink of her tongue – did nothing but remind him of the way she’d kissed him just hours previous."

    Summary

    Grant Ward has been working for years to keep Ward Enterprises out of the destructive hands of his older brother. Thanks to a clause in his grandfather’s will that gives voting shares to every Ward and the impending birth of a new nephew, however, Grant’s just about to lose the reins. He needs to even the odds – and quickly.

    Dr. Jemma Simmons has been working to find a cure to the rare disease that took her cousin’s life, but with dwindling donations to the university, she may never even get the chance. Attending the university’s mixer for potential donors is a long shot to getting her research funded, but she’s determined to try.

    After overhearing the pretty young scientist pitch her project, Grant decides to make a pitch of his own: he’ll fund her research over the next two years if she’ll agree to marry him long enough to wrest enough shares to keep the company out of Christian’s hands for good. It’s a deal neither of them can refuse, but in the end, they might just get more than they bargained for.

    Summary

    Celeste Winchester, née Middleton (of the Kansas City Middletons), awoke suddenly at the break of dawn in a mahogany bedstead older than the country of her birth. Uncertain at first what had roused her, she lay quite still, drowsy and warm beneath the counterpane; she could hear the cheerful aubade of the lark that frequented her windowsill, the creak of floorboards downstairs as the servants bustled about—but these were everyday occurrences, surely not to blame.

    Then a low and guttural moan issued forth from the other side of the door connecting her bedchamber with the Duke's, and she knew precisely what—or rather, whom—had cut short her slumber.

    Not every duchess, upon hearing her spouse in flagrante with another man, would feel little more than annoyance.

    But Celeste was an exceptional duchess.

    Summary

    Since forever Castiel has never felt attracted to anyone, angel or human.

    That is what Castiel thinks, until against all odds his sadist brother Lucifer takes interest in a particular human... and Castiel fears for his soul.
