    Summary

    The kitten was unusually small, most likely the runt of the litter. And very young. Laurent realizes with a mix of relief and discomfort that had Makoto not found her, she might not have made it another night. She was still in that uncertain window of frailty, but Laurent knew Makoto’s compassion would be the kitten’s fighting chance—he knew the second Makoto clutched her to his chest when he mentioned her mother was probably not coming back.

    He didn’t expect Makoto to include him in her care, too.

    Summary

    Ervin Moore was a regular man. A simple man, but a regular man. But, after the mysterious death of his volatile wife left him rattled and broken, he made the big choice of moving from Gramercy, New York to Hill’s Bend, Kentucky. A small, safe, rustic town, once a haven for a since-defunct Christian denomination, dating back to the 1800s. For the quiet and sleepy nature of the town, it was a good place to raise his daughter, Cynthia.

    However, when strange things begin to turn up and previously unsolved murders start to run hot, Ervin, his daughter, and their allies discover something truly sinister casting a shadow over their small town.

    Summary

    Edamura Makoto wants to do nothing more than use some of his well-earned con money to go on a lavish coffee adventure around the world, free of his criminal struggles from over the past few years, before settling down somewhere nice and quiet. Especially keeping away from a tenacious blonde bastard.

    But during a visit to a charming coffee shop in the outskirts of Taipei, Taiwan, he meets a rather captivating woman standing next door, tears rolling down her cheeks as she watches a cruel man take away her family's workplace and the entire neighborhood's as well to build a new factory for bubble tea distribution... or so he says. Edamura said he wouldn't go back to the con life, but what harm would it do to help out such a kind woman and her adoptive parents? But there's a nagging feeling in the back of his head that won't go away the more he learns about her and her troubling past. It doesn't help that he feels like he's seen the shiny ring glinting brightly on her finger before...

    Summary

    Makototo was at a party. One he particularly didn't want to be at but had been convinced into going to. He'd downed two beers, a shot of whiskey and his head was buzzing with the noise of the crowd. His eyes hurt from the bright LED's and if the music was any louder it was going to shatter his skull. All things considered for a college party, things were pretty boring.

    Makoto gets convinced to go to a party. There he gets more than tipsy, kisses one of his closest friends who he's been pining after for a while now, and thinks hes ruined their friendship. All in one night.

    Summary

    “And that about wraps up the details of this new operation,” Laurent declared with his usual cocky grin upon his face. He looked around the pricey hotel room at the various expressions on the team’s faces and asked, “Are there any questions pertaining to what I just explained?”

    “Yeah, I’ve got one!” Makoto shouted. He jumped to his feet and motioned towards the projected image of his own face upon the wall. The ridiculous hearts that were photoshopped around his head did nothing but fuel his outrage as he exclaimed, “Why are you and I playing the ‘oh so in love couple’!?”

    “Everyone has their parts to play, as per the norm, Edamame.” Laurent explained. He shut his eyes and put his left hand against his own chest then added, “You just happened to be lucky enough to get partnered with moi this time.”

    “You mean unfortunate enough,” A soft voice grunted from behind the blond.

    “You wound me, Abigail.” Laurent turned and pouted at her.

    Summary

    For years, Laurent had found himself coughing up pink and white flowers seemingly whenever the pain was at its worst.

    The attacks came less and less as the days passed and the grief settled down to something approaching tolerable.

    But when all is said and done, and he again finds his chest tight and the air hard to breathe...

    Oddly, these are not the flowers he has come to know.

    Summary

    Makoto Edamura was going to lose his mind. Sure, yes, he knew Laurent Thierry very well. They had been dating for three years, and… “eye-fucking each other constantly” as Cynthia loved to phrase it for at least six before it. So, really, when he saw the stupid little box with that stupid little ring in it, he shouldn’t have thought anything of it.

    aka Laurent’s newest scheme is figuring out how to propose to his precious Edamame.
