    Summary

    “Nicolo prays. He asks God, every day, five times a day, for answers. He begs God to show him the truth. In the rare times he’s on his lonesome, Nicolo extends his arms to Heaven and asks God to strike him down forever, if he should not love Yusuf. Every time he does, within two days, Nicolo dies, and Yusuf waits for him while he comes back. Yusuf’s eyes get wet, like they do every time he’s relieved Nicolo lives again, and his calloused hands take one of Nicolo’s, and all Nicolo can think about is how much he wants to kiss Yusuf. He’s never kissed anyone before.

    Nicolo can face Death fearlessly, and fight despite wounds that would kill a normal man, but when it comes to kissing the man he’s spent just over a decade loving wholeheartedly, he feels a coward.”

    Or, two men of God travel and fall in love every day for nine hundred years.

    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    Summary

    When the Miss United States Pageant is targeted by a terrorist known only as The Citizen, the FBI has no choice but to put one of their agents undercover in the pageant as a contestant.

    Unfortunately, the only agent in the entire bureau who fits the very specific profile of female, not pregnant, and allegedly looks good in a bikini is one Karen Page.

    She doesn’t own a dress—she doesn’t even own a brush.

    This has all the makings for the worst assignment, ever.
