    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

    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

    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.

    Damianos Akielos was a big ass in college. Gladly, Laurent is a critic and Damen became a chef. What's better than revenge combined with writing?

    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.)
