    Summary

    When Charles Xavier gets kidnapped by a metallokinetic bank robber, he doesn't expect it'll lead to becoming complicit into rectuiting a special mutant team to dismantle a government facility and rescue his sister.

    Charles rolled his eyes. “You want me to help you break out a dangerous criminal?”

    “My other idea involves illegal fighting rings.” Erik offered, as if raising a valid point.

    Charles gave him one of his best “disappointed professor” looks. It only had the effect of making a smile with too many teeth appear on Erik’s face, one that made him look like he was about to bite something. Charles took a second to not think about that.

    Summary

    It has been eight years since Charles has seen Erik. Eight years since they parted under unkind circumstances and Erik went off to sea. The boy he once knew is Captain Lehnsherr now and they are as known to one another as strangers, and yet--Charles finds that eight years has done nothing to diminish the feelings he had when he was 16 and in love.

    It's unfortunate then that Erik doesn't feel the same way.

    Summary

    Charles Xavier was heir to a vast fortune before his stepfather stole his birthright, his dignity, and his freedom. Forced to serve as Kurt Marko's informant and as a sexual plaything for the wealthy men of Europe’s upper crust, Charles yearns for nothing more than a quiet life free from shame and abuse.

    The death of his stepfather seems to offer a way out, but Charles is once again forced to serve the Markos when his stepbrother offers him up as collateral in a game of chance. Suddenly Charles becomes the property of Erik Lehnsherr, a mysterious gambler with a thirst for revenge.

    When love between the two men begins to blossom, Charles finally discovers what is at the heart of Erik’s tragic story, and why he is set upon a devastating course of revenge that will endanger Erik, Charles, and everything they have longed for.

    Summary

    "You must have noticed by now,” Jean says, posture rigid.

    Charles glances at her inquisitively before his gaze is inevitably pulled back towards Erik, who is standing with Peter on the balcony, engaged in private conversation.

    “That’s not him, Professor,” Jean says, voice strangely empty. “That’s not Erik.”
