    Summary

    Joe is having a very taxing day.

    In fairness, no one expects to begin the day by coming face-to-face with one’s lover’s estranged family, standing on the doorstep when one had been expecting the postman, or perhaps the drunk Frenchman from next door.

    Summary

    “I was just looking at the books,” he said, and Yusuf huffed. But later that night, Yusuf looked at him long and hard, like he was trying to puzzle something out.

    “I didn’t know you could read,” Yusuf said.

    Summary

    Being in the kidnapping business, Nicky thinks, is rather distasteful, but it’s more or less a matter of routine. You take someone, the family pays, everyone goes home happy—grazie, prego, kiss kiss.

    Just as long as you don’t catch feelings for your captive.

    (Or: A trashy pseudo-bodice ripper disguised as something vaguely resembling a Trust AU.)
