    Summary

    Formula 1 driver Yusuf "Joe" Kaysani has just signed with Old Guard Racing, under the management of Team Principal Andromache Scythian. Like in any new partnership, there's edges to file down to fit and roles to coordinate so it all goes smoothly. In between those questions is the matter of who will be his new race engineer and run comms for him during races. It's a big ask that needs a delicate balance, it can't be just anyone.

    Engineer Nicolò di Genova has been working at Old Guard Racing for a few years, putting his analytical mind to good use cutting down milliseconds of their lap times. He's been content with his work behind the scenes, only briefly stepping into the spotlight when the occasion called for it. Despite the sport's unpredictability, it's been good steady work, surely this new partnership won't change things much for him.

    Or: Joe runs his mouth when high on adrenaline, Nicky's voice is soothing, and a lot of things can happen in a single F1 season.

    Summary

    Set in a steampunk style world, The Old Guard Circus travels the states on their train, amazing and entertaining the masses. Beloved by the people for not only their show, but the camaraderie they display, and the feeling that anyone is welcome, even if they can’t pay.
    But then one day a new invention from the The Old Guard astounds the people, that has the potential to change the world. It catches the eye of one business tycoon Steven Merrick, who above all else craves power, and the wealth that comes along with it. This new invention coming out of a circus of all things, threatens the power balance between the classes. So Merrick tries to rip the circus apart by turning not only public sentiment against them but by a betrayal from within.

    “After all these years you still get nervous my love?” Nicky asks embracing him from behind.

    “Mmm, it’s better now that you are here,” Joe replies, turning in the embrace.

    “You look worried, the rehearsals have all been going well, even the small hiccup with the timing of the fireworks was resolved by Andy.”

    “By adding more gunpowder,” he responds dryly.

    Summary

    When Yusuf agrees to impersonate his sister and thereby meet her betrothed, it is supposed to be a harmless, chaperoned introduction where he can try to convince the man to call off a years-old engagement. Instead, he finds himself married in her stead and sailing back to Genoa with a husband exactly as cold and standoffish as Nadia had feared.

    Ever since he'd been told the terms of his father's will, Nicolo has been bracing himself for a marriage that was tolerable at best; he is not best pleased to find himself at risk of being forced to yield his title and inheritance to an abominable cousin. It doesn't help that his new husband is possibly the most gorgeous man alive - and the more Nicolo fights to fix this situation, the less he thinks he wants to.

    Summary

    Nicky is a waiter at a struggling Italian restaurant in Val d’Argent, but soon his fortunes change when the owners of the restaurant retire and he’s given the opportunity to take over. It’s a dream offer – one that comes with a mountain of fear and doubts. What if he fails? What if he wants to leave for bigger things?

    Most of all, what if it robs him of a chance with his favourite customer, the mysterious and extremely handsome Joe. When Nicky confides his worries to Joe, he learns about Joe’s royal secret in turn, which may end up being the solution to Nicky’s problems.

    Summary

    Since being stranded here, I have concluded the following: 1. I’ve been in a dust storm for several sols. 2. Shit. I suppose I’ll just have to think of something. Or die. Nicky, my love wherever you are, remember how we always joked that I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew, and that I would only be 'in command' if I were the only one left?

    Well I'm in command now.

    Summary

    In a world in which supernatural creatures exist, immortal beings rely on a potion to preserve their sanity: If taken every couple of decades, Praeservitum erases just enough memories from an immortal lifespan to make sense of them all and live an unburdened life.

    Joe is a vampire who's never had trouble with Praeservitum. If his life sometimes feels a bit lonely, he doesn’t want to blame a memory potion for it.

    Nicky is a werewolf who has grown sceptical of the potion, as he feels increasingly like there is something missing from his life that used to be there, if only he could remember.

    A chance encounter sees Nicky rescue Joe from a sticky situation. Although apprehensive of each other at first – they are a vampire and werewolf, after all – Nicky offers to help Joe when his friend goes missing. As they embark on a journey through the night, their lives unravel before them: where are all these memories coming from? And is this really the first time they’ve met?

    Summary

    After the forceful expulsion of the French Expeditionary Forces in 1800, the islands of Malta, Gozo, and Lampedusa become a de jure part of the Kingdom of Sicily, but under British protection.

    It's 1803. In 10 years, Malta will be a fully fledged British colony. For now, trouble brews in the archipelago, as whispers of the return of the Knights Hospitaller spread from city to city.

    Whoever will watch over the people in these times of unrest?

    Summary

    Joe's ready to abandon love, but Nile's got other plans in mind -- namely, matchmaking Joe with as many blind dates until he finds The One. The only problem with that plan is that after a few duds, Joe's way more invested in the hot waiter than he is with any of the dates.

    Summary

    Joe had filmed multiple different spots and stood for photoshoots that blurred together but it had been that one that perpetually stuck out to him. The crew had been nice, welcoming and open to suggestions. The photographer most of all.

    Nicky.

    Joe didn't exactly have the words to describe Nicky. Except nice, and competent, and pretty fucking gorgeous.

    Summary

    After the events of Cat and Crown, Yusuf returns to Shams as their King. He announces that Stello Nicolo (Cat) is the rightful heir to the Mezzaluna throne and that their mission will be to see him properly crowned. Nile takes her place as Yusuf's advisor, and goes to the front lines of a war she's never seen first hand.

    It quickly becomes clear that Cat's younger brother, Merrick, has no intentions of letting him rule Mezzaluna. He sends a new army to Shams, and this one cannot be killed by ordinary means. Trapped on the wrong side of the boarder, Cat must find a way to cross through a deadly battlefield filled with soldiers who would do anything to stop his ascension, so that he can make it back to Mezzaluna and take a throne he never wanted.

    The conclusion of the Cat Chronicles

    Summary

    It’s hard to run a diner as a ghost. Especially a diner sitting on top of a magic source and frequented by the supernatural. Nile really needs some help. Fortunately, a tall Frenchman and his half-fae son wander in one day.

    But there’s something lurking out in the world that wants all that power they are sitting on. And will do anything to have it. Cue our found family of werewolves, vampires, dryads, witches, and even a supersized bear shifter pitching in to save the day while still having time for a tasty sandwich.

    Summary

    And so it came to be that Earth’s first contact with intelligent alien life was not an invasion or some mysterious signal from the depths of space, but a plea for help and an offer of salvation.

    The Scythians come to Earth after a catastrophe destroys their planet and renders them effectively infertile. They need the humans and perhaps the humans need them as well.
