    Summary

    Aleksander returns - wounded - from a trip to the Fjeran border. Alina begins to question that perhaps he’s just in need of some tenderness.

    Alina thinks she knows him well enough, now, to know when the tone of his voice is conveying whether he is truly angry, exasperated with her, in general annoyed - but he sounds exhausted, tonight. She believes that he’s tired, she can somehow feel it in his body, where her hands are pressed to his skin. Can feel it in his power, usually curling around her when she touches him, now docile and quiet.

    “I don’t want to fight with you either,” Alina finds herself saying quietly, studying his dark eyes as they shutter closed and his forehead tips against hers.

    “Then go to bed, Miss Starkov,” Aleksander says, stepping away from her and disappearing as quick as the twilight’s long shadow.

    This is a companion piece to take it all, which I recommend reading first for context!

    Summary

    Gebhard’s dark laugh chilled Ælfric to the bone, but it was his words that truly scared the prince. “Who do you think sent me out here?” he murmured, voice low and almost gentle. “Your actions reflect on the crown, Highness, and your father is sick of it.” His tongue darted out and Ælfric shuddered at the wet sound of it tracing the shell of his ear. “So, I’ve been tasked with bringing you to heel. I can’t say I’m not looking forward to it,” he added, rubbing himself against Ælfric with a breathy groan.

    Summary

    England, 1811. Social status is everything, and the obsession of every parent is to see their children married well. For twenty-year-old Omega Will Graham, life in a small Hertfordshire market town with his father, adopted mother and four half-sisters is tranquil, if a little dull. Until, that is, a party of strangers arrives in the neighbourhood, sending every mother within five miles into a frenzy of anticipation. For not only are the newcomers Alpha aristocracy, but one among them - Mr Hannibal Lecter - is the owner of the largest estate in Derbyshire... and single. A pity, then, that Will and Hannibal's first meeting is less than auspicious. But sometimes, fate and circumstance have a way of conspiring to bring together even the most stubborn of individuals...

    Ethics & Aesthetics, a Regency A/B/O romance.
