    Summary

    A series to contain Sam's various original works set in the "Shivadhverse". The stories center around the royal family of Askazer-Shivadlakia, "The little country by the sea", one of the few democratic monarchies in the world with Europe's only Jewish royal family. The series follows the lives of the newly crowned King Gregory III, his fiance the American celebrity chef Eddie Rambler, his father King Emeritus Michaelis and his partner Jes Deimos, Jes's son Noah, Michaelis's nephew Gerald the Duke of Shivadlakia, Gregory's maternal cousin the lady Alanna Daskaz, and various other friends and family.

    Fete For A King tells the story of how Gregory fell in love with Eddie while Gregory was supposed to be looking for a proper husband and Eddie was supposed to be catering his coronation.
    Infinite Jes explains how podcast journalist Jes Deimos and their son Noah came into the life of the retired king Michaelis, who wasn't looking for romance but found it anyway.
    The Lady And The Tiger finds the Lady Alanna Daskaz and His Grace Gerald, Duke of Shivadlakia, discovering new love while engaging in political intrigue (and occasional tiger-wrangling) abroad.

    Summary

    The small coastal nation of Askazer-Shivadlakia is about to celebrate the coronation of a new king. Between coronation preparations and his father insisting it's past time to find a husband, Crown Prince Gregory has his hands full. He thought it would be safe to outsource hiring a caterer for the banquet to his trusted assistant, Alanna, but a miscommunication means that rather than hiring an elegant professional chef for the occasion she's hired Eddie Rambler, the loud American host of a TV show about greasy spoons.

    As it turns out, Eddie's also a great cook, and he's thrilled to learn everything there is to know about the country as he prepares menus and befriends the staff. He even charms Gregory via late-night fish fries, afternoon picnics, and his terrifying specialty, the Trash Tower. It doesn't hurt that he's handsome...and openly attracted to the crown prince.

    It can't be more than a fling, they both agree. But Eddie's falling for the country as much as for its incoming king, and Gregory is beginning to wish the perfect King Consort in his head looked a little more like tacky beach-bum influencer Eddie Rambler, floral shirt and all.

    Summary

    Just what it says on the tin. But funnier. You know, Roald can laugh at himself. And his hopeless obsession with Jemis Greenwing. And the fact that he wants to lick that streak of cake off Jemis's face. The fact that he wants Jemis to actually look at him and not just stand there bowing and sirring him. Roald knows he's a mess. He doesn't really care.
