    Summary

    Poppy failed. She never found Q.B. Noyouko and Mr. Lam moved on, taking the future of Giant Goldfish Publishing with him. Now she has a month to find a new job; otherwise her only option is to move back to Moonbright and face the small town’s judgement. Then the broody man who’d left her life knocks on her door, needing a favor.

    The Balthumans are expanding, which means Quincey and Tora have to represent the family at official—legal—events. More than that, Vince has decided it’s time for his sons to settle down. When the adamantly-single Tora claims to have a girlfriend, he has days to find someone to pretend to date him, else he’ll be stuck with whomever Vincent chooses.

    She needs money. He planned to pay a woman regardless. For the next few months, Poppy is, in her own words, Tora’s sugar baby. Just until she gets back on her feet, and just long enough that Tora can claim a painful break up.

    And it’s entirely platonic… right?

    Summary

    For a long time, Narin City has been controlled behind the scenes by three rival clans: the Balthumans, the Ninedaggers, and the Roses. Over the years, the gangs—previously operating on the outskirts of what was considered legally acceptable, have worked their way into politics, vying for more complete power. When the prime minister is assassinated, the race is on.

    Poppy Wilkes, a progressive beat reporter, is determined to reveal exactly how tangled the government and clans are, but she needs a source on the inside. Will she get what she needs when she bumps into a mysterious stranger at a Halloween party the night of the election?

    (Though this story is heavily driven by Narin politics where Vinnie is one of the candidates for election, it's mostly/actually a story about a Halloween party on a train that both Tora and Poppy attend, though for very different reasons: Poppy is a reporter posing as a gangster to get information, and Tora is a gangster tasked with political sabotage.

    TL;DR: If you like a whole lotta intrigue with your smut...all aboard!)
