    Summary

    Baz Pitch loves, in no particular order; David Bowie, punk music, the feel of old vinyl, the smell of coffee (but not the taste), classic books, magic, David Byrne, the fact that he was raised by his aunt Fiona, and maybe, sometimes, Simon Snow.

    Summary

    ‘Okay, you can stop it with your perfect boyfriend and relationship, we’re not all like that.’
    ‘Boyfriend?’ Lazar, one of the ER doctors asked, as he strolled past with a tablet in his hands. ‘Laurent? Dating? You’re not dating someone, are you?’
    ‘I am,’ Laurent said flatly. ‘He’s the love of my life.’
    ‘Who would –’ Lazar snapped his mouth shut and rephrased his words. ‘Tell me more.’

     

    aka, the doctor/paramedic "everyone thinks we hate each other but in reality, you're the love of my life" au that absolutely no one asked me for. as usual.

    Summary

    Since his miraculous escape from the assassination attempt that saw almost his entire family dead and his uncle on the throne, Laurent has spent the past ten years in hiding, as a member of a witches’ coven, honing his magic and trying to find a way to restore Auguste to the throne of Vere.

    Six of those ten years have been spent with Damen at his side, bound to him by deep an ancient magic, first as an ally and then as a lover.

    When Theomedes dies, their lives are thrown into upheaval: it is decreed that the new ruler of Akielos will be, among those who bear Theomedes’ blood, the first one to find the red stone that represents the Power of Akielos, which was thrown to the heavens and has brought down a star to the earth with it as it fell.

    Together, they embark on a quest to find the stone, in a race against Kastor, but they are not the only ones searching, for it is said that whoever consumes the heart of a living star will gain powers beyond all reckoning.

    Summary

    Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. -Mother Teresa

    Summary

    Neuro-atypical uni student Baz Pitch has never had a boyfriend, or a first date. He’s never even been kissed. Up until now, he’s been too busy being…well. Neuro-atypical.

    He spends his days at uni and his nights working at the bookshop owned by his eccentric aunt’s on-again off-again boyfriend. He’s not doing it for the money—he doesn’t need any, not with the inheritance his mother left him. All he needs is something to do, something to get him out of the house. But he never expected a simple bookselling job to turn his entire world upside-down.

    Enter Simon Salisbury. He’s not sure where his life’s headed. He’s taken a gap year, and his girlfriend’s gone off to college in California and broken things off with him. When his best friend Penelope takes him to the bookshop near her school for a coffee and a scone, he thinks all he’s getting is advice and commiseration. But then there's Baz.

    Simon’s determined to get to know the bloke at the bookshop, but Baz has spent a lifetime trapped inside his own mind. He knows that letting Simon get to know him means exposing the most vulnerable bits of himself. But love is vulnerable in itself, and sometimes trusting someone with our hearts is a risk worth taking.
