    Summary

    “Oh,” Stiles said, his voice coming out low and breathy, “fuck me.”

    “I don’t think that’s on the syllabus, but we can check to see if there’s a spot open in any of his classes,” Scott said, grinning.

    “This isn’t an actual professor, though,” Stiles insisted, unable to resist brushing his thumb over the sharp line of the man’s bearded jaw. He was laughing at something off-camera, the shot taken in three-quarters view, his coat collar casually rumpled and opened to reveal a sliver of a simple grey t-shirt. The whole thing was deliberately calculated to lend him a more accessible feel, and god help him, Stiles was falling for it.

    *

    When Stiles signed up for Dr. Hale’s intro to history class, he had two goals: knock out the credits his advisor was bugging him to complete before he graduated, and spend a few hours a week daydreaming about his sexy professor’s salt and pepper beard.

    Derek, a few months away from turning forty and not sure when his life had started feeling so damn lonely, had never encountered someone like Stiles before. Bright-eyed, sharp-tongued, determined to throw Derek’s carefully cultivated world into disarray…and absolutely the last person Derek should be falling in love with.

    “I don’t know. I’ve never met anyone in a band before. I’m not in a band. Well, I’m in some school bands, but that’s not really… um. What kind of music do you play?”
    “…Well.”

    Summary

    “Theo Altman,” Emma said smugly.

    Billy stared at the pictures in his hands. He tried to speak, couldn’t, then moistened his suddenly dry lips with the tip of his tongue. “… he’s the jeans guy.”

    “Calvin’s current campaign model, yes. I had lunch with his agent last week.” Emma studied her nails critically, as though Billy wasn’t gaping at her and Tommy snickering from his place on the couch.

    “Altman wants to make the jump into film, you need a date to get rid of the ‘fake gay’ buzz. You take him to some parties, introduce him around to the people he needs to know, and make sure the paparazzi manage a few flattering shots of you staring dreamily into each other’s eyes. Then you have a sad breakup, we announce that you’d like the press to respect your privacy, and everything goes back to normal.” She waved airily. “Dead simple, even you could pull it off.”

    Summary

    In 1742, seven year old orphan Victor Nikiforov is adopted by the childless Empress of Russia and her husband, and brought to live in the palace at St Petersburg as heir to the throne. Ten years later, Yuri Plisetsky becomes his adopted brother.

    Their relationship is characterised by jealousy on Yuri's part and relentless attempts at friendship on Victor's, their one unifying pleasure being their mutual love of ice skating. However when Victor falls in love and shirks his responsibilities, they fall on Yuri's shoulders, leaving him with an arranged marriage he does not want and more hatred towards his brother than he's ever felt before.

    The only thing stopping Yuri from descending into depression is his reintroduction to an old friend, Otabek Altin, the one man Yuri wants desperately but is forbidden from having.
