    Summary

    “I don’t know what to make of you.” He admits, wetting his lips. “But I want to – I want to learn everything I possibly can about you, and I don’t know why. There’s just something about you, Laurent.”

    Laurent lets out a heavy breath, turning away from the force of Damen’s gaze before he can be drawn too far in. It is always like this, Damen’s entire existence a gravitation, desperately pulling Laurent into the fray of it when he cannot afford to be lost in the depths of something so fierce, something so strong. He finishes off the Griva, hands shaking, but not from the cold.

    Speaking with Damen is a lot like being lost at sea. Laurent decides that it is in his best interest to just stop fighting the currents.

    “I am not an easy person to be friends with.” He breathes in deep, eyes fluttering closed, mind numbing over to the weight of the alcohol. “I would not wish it upon anyone.”

    “I’m not after easy.” A quick response, like Damen had been expecting his resistance and would not stop in the face of it. Laurent can feel the heat of his gaze on the side of his face. Chooses deliberately to not open his eyes. To do so would be too much, far more than Laurent is capable of handling.

    Summary

    Laurent DeVere is a journalist with ambitions that reach higher than the work he’s given. Then, Senator Damianos Akielos walks into his office with the scoop of a lifetime about his brother, Kastor. But the story needs delicate, dangerous work.

    Under the guise of a relationship, the two begin to work together closely, and find themselves grappling with the fact of both Kastor on their heels, and their emerging - and entirely unprofessional - feelings for each other.

    Summary

    “Tell me the story about how the Sun loved the Moon so much he died every night to let her breathe.”

    Except Damen doesn’t love Laurent and would not die for him.
    This man killed his father, after all.

    Or

    Damianos, the sun king, hates Laurent because he killed his father. Laurent, the moon king, hates Damianos because he killed his brother. But when the eclipse, a ball, a dance beyond the realms of day and night, comes up and they meet they soon will need to face truths they never thought possible and find themselves joining forces with each other to fight a plot that is bigger than their hate against each other.

    Summary

    Tasha is on a quest—a quest to find her father, the Akielon noble who sired her at a coupling fire and then returned, only to steal away her mother and twin brother and leave her behind. He left her with two things: an emerald carved with the crest of a lion and starburst, and the words, “Find me at Marlas, if you wish.”

    Now a runaway from her own clan, Tasha must travel across the New Artesian Empire to seek a family she’s never known with only a supremely arrogant, mysterious, blue-eyed translator for company. Faces both familiar and new greet them on their way to the capitol, as well as seeds of unrest in the empire. And when they arrive at the capitol it’s not just Tasha’s secrets that are about to come to light…

    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

    "Luckily for you, I suppose I could be persuaded to do you the favour of becoming your pet to improve your image. Just because I pity you, you understand."

    Of course. Nicaise couldn't possibly be making such a kind and selfless offer because he suddenly wanted to stick close to Laurent for some reason.

    Or because he was running from something, more to the point.

    Summary

    Damen is a highly praised chef, but there seems to be one critic whom he can't win over: Laurent de Vere. Why is this stranger writing such withering reviews?
    Damianos Akielos was an ass in college, at least that’s what Laurent thinks. Gladly, Laurent is a critic and Damen became a chef. What's better than revenge combined with writing?

    Summary

    Two years after Damen and Laurent have ascended their rightful thrones, abolished slavery and worked to unite their kingdoms, they are to finally wed.
    However, matters are complicated when the Vaskian Goddess gives Laurent and Damen what they most desire, as a wedding gift; their beloved dead friends come back to life.
    This means that Laurent must face his brother and tell him that he has forgiven and now loves his killer... and find out where that leaves his future.

    Summary

    Nikandros had long since given up on ever being able to get rid of those damn Veretians. But that didn't mean he should have to personally deal with them in every single facet of his life, right?

    Nicaise and Laurent each had their own ideas about that.

    Summary

    “You don’t look fine,” Nicaise snaps. “How can you bear to be with him, if he makes you so unhappy?”

    “He does not,” Laurent says. He’s smiling, just a little, something wistful in the lines of his eyes. “But no marriage is ever effortless. There are always times when it’s easier to let things end, rather than hold on to them.”

    “I thought love was supposed to be simple,” Nicaise says. He feels lost, like a child in a starlit wood.

    “Oh, Nicaise,” Laurent says. His voice is gentle. “No one ever tells you this, but love is not a choice you get to only make once. You’ll have to keep choosing it, again and again and again, even when it’s painful, if you want it to survive. So long as it’s worth it.”

    Summary

    Nicaise’s beauty does not survive into adulthood.

    There are freckles on his face, his shoulders, his arms, left-overs from long summers during which the sun on the white cliffs of Ios has scorched his skin. There is a scar, small but noticeable, on his chin, from the time he tripped over his own feet and fell, smearing his blood on the rocks. His nose was broken in a fight when he was seventeen, and has never quite set right.

    He grows tall, and lean and swift as a whip, muscles wiry and marks on his knuckles from years of sparring. Nothing is left of the boy he once was, terrified of a scraped knee because it would mar his looks and invite displeasure - he likes it better this way, he finds.

    Summary

    Laurent wants to use the circumstances of his unexpected heat to their advantage. And what Laurent wants, Laurent gets.

    (Or: Damen is so obvious about how bad he has it for Laurent that even a random cloth merchant they meet on the road feels like he has to take pity on Damen and play the part of his publicist.)

    "A week is too long." Laurent wound his arms around Damen's shoulders, pressing a line of kisses along his jaw. "We missed you."
