    Summary

    Across a harrowing three days, Jack talked Agent Foxtrot through an increasingly improbable series of escapades and was disobeyed by her a grand total of 117 times. Eventually they managed to fob off nuclear war without destroying any Unesco heritage sites, and then Jack went home and slept for fifteen hours and returned to his office feeling marginally closer to human, only to see perched on his desk an extraordinarily beautiful woman in a frock the colour of fresh blood, spinning the chamber of a shiny golden pistol.

    “Jack Robinson,” she said. “I’d hoped you look as good as you sound.”

    “And?”

    “You look even better."

     

    The AU in which Phryne is a secret agent and Jack is her long-suffering handler.

    Summary

    The Bowerbird wasn't playing fair; Jack couldn't debate these pieces of paper. He couldn't tell pieces of paper and a growing pile of feathers that he, too, remembered the rare treat that was eating a single piece of tropical fruit in the heavy heat of a Christmas afternoon, stickying his best suit of clothes, which had been so clean and pressed for church that morning.

    (In which Inspector Jack Robinson is having a fairly uneventful year, divorce notwithstanding, until he acquires a lady doctor for a drinking buddy and receives a series of flirtatious notes from a jewel thief.)

    Summary

    “I know I said we should sleep, but are you thinking what I’m thinking?”

    The words had barely left her mouth before he swept her up, their bags left forgotten by the door. There were more pressing matters at hand.

    Daniel promptly backed her into the nearest wall of the entranceway with a quiet thump. Those needy, greedy kisses stunned Daisy, as he caged her in with his arms. He was everywhere, hands and mouth all around her in a flurry, like he was trying to map every inch of her body in a single stolen breath.

    “Is this what you were thinking?”
