    Summary

    Steve Rogers, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and mostly happy disposition, had lived twenty-three years in the world with very little to distress or vex him.

    *

    ( Steve is wealthy and and charming, with good humor and good temper, doted upon by his mother and the highest of New York Society, with no one to ever criticize or say the word no to him. Well, other than Bucky. But he doesn't count.

    He is also warm and friendly and has a talent for matchmaking. Or so he thinks. Actually, he's kind of terrible at it.

    Importantly, Steve will definitely never fall in love or marry, himself. He tells everyone this, repeatedly. Well anyway, we'll see about that. )

    Summary

    “Whatever I can do for you, just name it, Bittle. It’s yours.”

    It’s quiet for a moment, and Bittle turns to him, looking a little unsure. Jack’s about to reassure him that he can get it for him, whatever it is, when Bittle suddenly blurts, “You could hire a new assistant.”

    Jack raises an eyebrow, not quite following. “And why would I need to do that?”

    Bittle inhales, looking straight into Jack’s eyes with the same steely conviction Jack had hired him for. “Because I’d like to resign.”

    Summary

    Seventeen-year-old James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes, born to wealth and privilege, is returning home to America aboard the RMS-Titanic -- the Ship of Dreams -- with his mother, Winifred, and fiancé, Alexander Pierce. Wanting nothing to do with the upcoming wedding that's been forced upon him, Bucky feels lost and helpless, desperate to get away from a life he dreads. All he longs for is freedom, and he might very well be desperate enough to escape by any means necessary.

    For twenty-year-old Steve Rogers, a kind but poor artist, life is full of endless possibilities and limitless adventures. When Steve wins a pair of Third Class Tickets for Titanic at a lucky hand of poker, he just knows with all his heart that his destiny waits for him on that ship. With the fresh air in his lungs, a few blank pages, and his best friend, Sam, at his side, Steve is sure this is going to be his biggest adventure yet.

    While aboard the ship, a chance encounter brings Bucky, the spoiled aristocrat, and Steve, the starving artist, face-to-face, and one moment just might change both their lives forever as they sail across the Atlantic on the ill-fated Ship of Dreams.

    Summary

    Tucked against a set of crumbling, stone steps was a tank made of metal and glass, filled to the brim with greenish water, distorted sunlight filtering through and casting strange shadows. Playing tricks on the eye. A trick was the only explanation for what Steve saw floating there. This figment of his childhood. This myth. This legend.

    Within the tank, the siren bared its teeth.
