    Summary

    Sir Gerard Arthur Way, Baronet of Tichborne, has a reputation. He is prone to romantic flights of fancy, is often accompanied by artists and gentlemen below his rank, and has a predilection for Gothic novels. In the winter of 1791, he shuts himself up in a private apartment with the intent to write a novel of his own. He's quickly distracted, however, by the arrival of a Mr. Francis Iero, who has taken up residence in the mysterious Paramour Abbey. Certainly the Abbey is haunted, and certainly it's the domain of any Gothic novelist, baronet or no, to investigate...

    (AKA: this is a Jane Austen AU that I couldn't help but write.)

    Summary

    IN PROGRESS

    Revolutions change everything, especially the people involved in them and fate has a strange way of calling people.

    At the beginning of his life, it would have been impossible to know that Maximilien Robespierre would go from a small-town scandal to the most powerful man in France. The quiet boy born in Arras with his mother's green eyes and none of his father's flightiness showed no early signs of a relentless revolutionary leader, determined to overthrow the oppressive monarchy. Yet by the actions of others, his own skill, and intelligence he finds himself navigating the dangerous and everchanging world of revolutionary France, thrust onto a fragile pedestal handcrafted by his ideals.

     

    WARNING:
    Swear words, mild gore, mentioned suicide attempts, implied sexual content, scenes containing violence, prejudices, and other possibly upsetting themes are contained in this book. Read at your own risk. All mentioned subjects are handled carefully to keep the novel appropriate to the actual French Revolution and historical figures in the book while taking precautions not to upset anyone.

    Summary

    To live a life full of the decadent spoils offered to that of a young woman in nobility, you must also realize that eventually the time will come to perform your most important duty to your family—being married off. You are by far the loveliest of your sisters and cousins and as such, are granted the honor of being the wife of the heir apparent to the Marleyan throne, Zeke Yeager.
    It is easy enough to fall into a simple routine in an unfamiliar nation with a new court, a husband who you don’t truly love, and a title you can’t fully appreciate until your duties cause you to cross paths with high-ranking officials of the military. Though you suspect it won’t end well, you find yourself inexplicably drawn to the steely-eyed man by Commander Erwin’s side that makes you question your own fate. It would be far simpler to just try to learn to love your husband, Zeke, rather than to fall for the mysterious Captain Levi—but you never were the simple type.

    Summary

    Shelby looked up at his unforgiving eyes and let out a dark sound. “Given my history, you could have easily have your men piece a sword right through my gut. Go back. Say you heard of a story, of how the ship went down, the crew drowned. You would get away with it”.

    “Yes. But, unlike you, I have the sense loyalty and a duty to bring you back. Your father seems rather eager to have you home for the festival”.

    “W-What?” Shelby stumbled, her whole body tripping forward as bare hands crashed on the bars, fingers tightening around metal. “What festival?! Faber, shit, come back here!”

    He slammed the door behind him as if to make a point, and Shelby knocked her forehead on a bar with a deep, miserable groan.

    “That went well”, a hoarse voice spoke up and, if the ground hadn’t disappeared underneath Shelby’s boots before, it sure as hell did now.

    Because where previously was a fucking mess of limbs and loose clothes, now laid Toni Shalifoe, with an actual smoking pipe hanging from her lips and with the very familiar black hat placed on her belly.

    “What in the world are you doing here?!”
