    Summary

    Diana feared for a moment that it would not work—that the light of her power wasn't enough, and the ice would never melt.

    But then the first splintering crack reached her ears, and a moment later the wall of it before her had cracked, shattered; pieces broke off and slid away, the ice splitting deeper and deeper, still reflecting with red-gold shimmers of light. And then, all at once, a series of gasps, ragged startled half-drawn breaths—and Lois coughed.

    Summary

    I have hoped - nay - dared to dream. Lost and wakened and then dreamed and lost again.

     

    But here she lays below her. Below her and unresisting - even with far less wooing than is common for such a seduction - far less skirting about the issue at hand before Anne Lister is allowed to skirt up the issue with her hand.

    Here is Ann Walker. Eyes bright. Lips parted. A curious girl.

    Summary

    How strange - how strange, indeed. To be given counsel well enough that she, Anne Lister, should find comfort in it. Heed it. Be soothed by it. She who brushes away advisors like gnats about a steed. The men who underestimate her. The sister who nags her. The gossipy swarm of those in Halifax who vex her.

    And yet Miss Walker, face tilting up towards her own, speaks so earnestly. Finds the very wound within Anne’s heart and cups it with careful fingers. Does not press. Is given the opportunity, and she does not press.

    Summary

    'In truth, Ann knows her fatigue has no real physical cause, and is rather borne of the intense boredom that has settled on her shoulders since their arrival in the Lake District, and a yearning for something else. Someone else.'

    Summary

    It's been 20 years since Pippa Pentangle sauntered into Hecate's life at a Hollywood party and Hecate hasn't thought of her in 19 of those years. Now they have to work together on a film close to Hecate's heart. Will they succeed or will the weight of history destroy everything?


    "Pippa Pentangle?" Hecate slowly unfolded to her full height. "We've met, yes." Hecate's throat worked as she suddenly felt it impossible to swallow. Pippa. Of all of the musicians in the world, why did it have to be Pippa? Hecate rubbed her hands together in a nervous gesture. "It will be good to see her again." No, it wouldn't. The last time she had seen Pippa… it didn't bear thinking about. "If you'll excuse me," Hecate said as she exited Ada's office.

    She made it all the way to the bathroom before she had to stop. Hand against her stomach, she exhaled. She stepped to the sink and started the water, splashing some on her face then pulling down a paper towel to wipe it off again.

    20 years later, Hecate still hadn't found a way to truly banish Pippa from her awareness, but she had gotten close. Now, it seemed, she would be working with her and there would be no way to ignore Pippa's existence.
