    Summary

    Juno had a chance with Nureyev, but he gave it up. Nureyev may not know how to talk to him, but he does know how to make Juno jealous. Unfortunately, there's only one person on this ship that he could actually do that with.

    So: seduce Jet Sikuliaq, suppress feelings for Juno Steel, and try to survive various heists in the meantime. How hard could this be?

    Summary

    Juno chewed his jam and toast slowly, eyes narrowed at Peter and Rita in a strange way. Buddy started to spread more jam on another piece and glanced at him.

    "Is something wrong, Juno?" she asked curiously. He took a moment to swallow his food before glaring down at his toast.

    "Weird dream," he mumbled, slumping in his chair. Buddy hummed in the way a parent would when feigning understanding of their child's ramblings and furrowed her brow. Juno frowned and took another dejected bite of his food.

    Summary

    “Mistah Steel!” Rita chided. “You know ya ain’t supposed to lift anything heavy with your ribs all messed up like that!”

    Before Juno could attempt to protest—his ribs were just cracked; he was pretty much fine—Rita had shouldered her way in front of him and lifted the package blocking the office door.

    Juno inhaled sharply.

    Summary

    Juno has been on Buddy and Vespa’s ship for three weeks now, and they’ve been…eventful.

    Rita, predictably, gets on like a house on fire with every last one of them. Buddy and Vespa find her exasperatedly endearing, Jet listens to her rants about streams and cybersecurity with equally rapt attention, and Peter… Well, Peter gets along with everyone, doesn’t he?

    Juno's the one who doesn't fit, and slowing down means that the stress of everything with Theia and O'Flaherty finally has a chance to catch up with him. Juno's never had the best timing, has he?

    Summary

    “Hang on, they’re just computer files?” I blurted out. “Why can’t Rita hack in from the ship?”

    The big guy—sorry, Jet—offered an explanation. “The computer bank that houses the data we need is isolated from all networks. Without a physical connection to the machine, it is completely inaccessible.”

    “That’s intentional, of course,” Nureyev added. “With enough time and planning, my dear detective, there isn’t a database in the galaxy that a master hacker can’t access.”

    “…So they put it where the hacker can’t get to it in the first place.” I sighed. “A secure government space station.”

    Summary

    All Rita knows is that last year Juno disappeared with the suspicious not-a-Dark Matters-agent, left a terrifying voicemail, and came back weeks later without an eye. So when Rita sees Rex Glass or whatever his name is perched up on the Ruby Seven, she's not happy about it. Juno only seems to date people who want to kick his teeth in.

    Summary

    Juno had grown a lot in his year away from Nureyev. Unfortunately, the initial bar was set so low that 'a lot' still left plenty of room for his usual mistakes.

     

     

     

    Juno tries to talk to Peter after their unexpected reunion, but it may take him a few attempts to get it right.

    Summary

    As if anything about this job could conceivably get any worse, the hand pointing the gun at her belonged to none other than one Juno Steel, Private Eye, mouth hanging open and face turning red faster than she had previously thought possible.

    Alessandra Strong has survived a lot of things, but "accidentally getting hired to stop your friend and his crime-family from robbing a bank" isn't one of them. Yet.

    Summary

    If someone had told Juno when he was a kid that he would be exorcizing demons and ghosts and ancient Martian horrors and poltergeists from people, pets, artifacts, and their homes... well... He probably would have thought it was pretty cool back then.

    Local librarian, Mabrie Gardener, meanwhile, is fed up with his total lack of job security and decides to seek out professional help.

    Summary

    Vespa turns and stares him down. “There was no reason for you to get shot today, Steel,” she says, dark eyes flashing. Then she is gone.

    Alone in the dark infirmary, breathing shallowly, Juno understands this perfectly. Do a better job. Don’t get shot next time. Protect your team and don’t get hurt.

    Summary

    Nureyev drinks nothing but black coffee for breakfast, favors silver jewelry, sleeps with one eye open, and is glad to let Buddy take the lead in their criminal overtures. His tongue is sharp, his silence sharper. He wears tailored A-line suits, slim silver glasses, garçon-style culottes, and once, notably, a smoking-jacket embroidered in white roses, which Juno hates to look at. And always, always, heels—practical suede boots, red-soled pumps, piercing stilettos. Legs for days.

    Or: sharing a spaceship with a master thief who's a) extremely hurt, b) very bitter, and c) really fucking sexy is ... a challenge.

    Summary

    Juno wants to start over. That's why he's leaving Mars. He's spent a lot of time since his last night with Nureyev thinking about what he would do if he ever got the chance to talk to him again, and actually seeing him again is both the best and worst feeling in the world. Juno and Nureyev must navigate their broken relationship as they finally get to see the universe together, even if it's not the way either of them wanted it to happen.
