    Summary

    1941 is the London Blitz and the year that MI5 really comes into its own with the now infamous ‘double cross’ system. The service keep tabs on suspects, root out enemy agents and try to turn them into doubles.

    Anthony J Crowley is fucking great at this job. He can be sneaky, underhanded and damn ruthless but also charming and kind. It’s what makes him good at turning.

    Aziraphale is just a regular Soho bookseller who loves his shop and books and good food and wine when he’s approached by a woman claiming to be MI5, wanting to recruit him for espionage. The poor man is too trusting and gets the shock of his life when he’s approached by a charming but dangerous-looking man also claiming to be MI5.

    Crowley recruits Aziraphale to double cross a double crosser and Aziraphale takes to espionage like a duck to water.

    Danger, hijinks, and sex ensue.

    Summary

    That was her nanny. Her son’s dowdy, sunglasses-wearing nanny, who dressed like a Victorian dominatrix and towered over both Harriet and Thaddeus. And she was wearing the slutty black gown that Harriet hadn’t had the courage to try on herself.

    “Oh my God,” she heard herself say.

    The nanny and her gentleman friend both turned to her, surprise blooming across their faces.

    “Oh shit,” said the gentleman friend, which was rich coming from the human incarnation of a marshmallow.

     

    Or, Harriet Dowling makes a deal with—well, not quite the devil.

    Summary

    A.Z. Fell is a famous (well, in his circle) Soho bookseller whose selection of volumes is the epitome of respectable (and boring) literature. One of his favourite authors is the renowned science writer A.J. Crowley, whose books on astronomy have popularized the subject — and also sell very well.
    Mr Fell is overjoyed when Dr Crowley accepts his invitation to do a signing of his new book in the bookshop, but their first conversation is a disaster: for some reason, Crowley does not share Fell’s distaste for romantic literature and acts very cold when the bookseller berates the author of one of the most popular romance series of the moment, Madame Ashtoreth.
    Little does Fell know that his favourite writer and the one he hates with a passion are the same person…
