    Summary

    Alec loves his job. He’s been touring since he was sixteen. He’s stayed in dozens of countries over the years, learned enough of their languages to get a beer in his hand and a man in his bed. The road is as much his home as the townhouse on the Upper West Side. He’s as comfortable in cheap hotel rooms with scratchy linens and glaring lights as he is in his penthouse that overlooks Central Park with its silk sheets and the constant hum of the city that never sleeps.

    Alec works hard and that hard work has paid off. He just finished his latest sold-out world tour and by all rights, he should be on top of the world. But the mental pressure of celebrity is getting to Alec and he doesn't trust his footing. He's stuck where most people would kill to be and he just wants to know what his next move should be.

    Enter Magnus Bane. A history professor at Columbia University, Magnus is content with his friends, his classes, and the occasional warm body in his bed. But he's been feeling stagnant, looking for the next chapter in his life to begin. If only he knew what Alec would bring his way.

    Summary

    After decades of war, when it becomes clear that it is only a matter of time before Edom emerges victorious, King Asmodeus agrees to bury the hatchet with Idris - for a price.

    Alec, once heir to the throne of Idris, comes to Edom knowing that he's no better than a prisoner-of-war. Magnus, who wants nothing to do with his father's power plays and politics, is furious that his father has saddled him with an arranged political marriage.

    But the peace they have bought for both kingdoms is a fragile one, and with luck, maybe this arrangement will only be temporary.

    And that's a good thing - right?

    Summary

    Alec sometimes wonders why he ever decided to pursue a career in politics. Magnus sometimes questions whether pursuing his dream of becoming an actor was worth it.

    Those two facts are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

    Summary

    “Hey there,” Alec says in the lowest, sexiest voice he can manage. It sounds vaguely disinterested but some people get off on that.

    “Hi,” the voice says.

    “Ready to have some fun?”

    The voice makes a small, sad noise.

    “Or not?” Alec tries hastily. He gets paid regardless of what they're talking about. “We can just chat for a while.”

    “What’s your name,” the voice says finally.

    “Uh, Chad,” Alec says. He was drunk when he picked his name, just as he was drunk when he answered the job wanted ad. He should have picked something sexy like Tristan, but he’s forever Chad now, the douchiest phone sex operator in history. He balances his bowl of macaroni carefully on his stomach and sneaks a quick bite.

    “You don’t sound like a Chad,” the voice says doubtfully.

    “Why the hell not?” Alec says before he can stop himself, mouth full of pasta.

    “--are you eating?”

    “No,” Alec lies and swallows.

     

    ---

    Alec is a bored phone sex operator. Bafflingly, Magnus just wants to talk about music.
