    Summary

    "While I share your contempt for this situation in which we find ourselves, do not mistake it as apathy," he hissed through gritted teeth, dark eyes burning. "I hardly expect your disposition to sweeten, but I will be damned if I allow my future Empress to behave in a manner that reflects poorly on me and on the First Order!"

    "If you allow?" She wrenched her arm out of his viselike grasp, batting his hand away for good measure. "I don't belong to you. I don't belong to anyone."

    "That might have been the case back when you were a scavenger on that pitiful scrap heap of a planet, but now?" His sardonic gaze flickered over her silk robes and the jewels woven through her elaborate braids. "Now you are the Chume'da, and the Chume'da belongs to her people. Their fate is entirely in your hands. Should you cross the line, it is they who will suffer for it. Am I making myself clear?"

    "I hate you," she said bitterly.

    He sneered at her. "See? Already you are acclimatizing so well to married life."

    Summary

    “The debt must be repaid,” she says, and it has the weight of a vow. The words resonate through him, ringing through his ribcage and the bones of his jaw, and Stiles loses his breath and maybe his grip on reality because she draws herself upright and where there had once stood a supermodel-level MILF now there is Galadriel’s much hotter older sister, a Presence of unmistakable power in their ordinary, smells-vaguely-of-Thai-takeout hallway.

    “Oh shit,” Stiles says.

    Summary

    Crime reporter Will Graham's column on page six of the Baltimore Sun garners him the attention of many: fans, hobby detectives, the FBI...and others.

    -

    Hannibal cut off a piece of meat with surgical precision. “I find your company rather engaging.”

    “Maybe I don't find you all that engaging.”

    Silence.

    Hannibal grinned. “I see that it will take more than one dinner to earn your forgiveness. Challenge accepted.”

    Summary

    Syleese, the jewel of the Kalinae system, is rich in mineral resources and advanced technology of great interest to the Federation. Jim and his crew lead the diplomatic outreach to this isolated planet with their usual confidence and attention to detail.

    Although the Syleesians are a devotedly peaceful people, the mission is not without risk -- the planet’s entire culture is based upon an elaborate set of courtly manners that dictate how one should behave in every circumstance. One misstep could destroy the nascent relationship between Syleese and the Federation before it even begins.

    As Jim navigates these delicate negotiations with Spock at his side, he finds himself closer than he’s ever been to revealing his deepest secret...
