    Summary

    Catra didn’t mean to get pregnant, but she can’t say it was a mistake, not when she loves her kids like this. Being a single mom is hard, and she thinks about Adora often, but she can’t ruin her best friend’s life by coming back and telling her the truth about what resulted from their one night together. Catra can get through anything as long as she has her kittens with her, even life without Adora.
    It just turns out that Adora thinks the kittens would do anything but ruin her life.

    Summary

    Coping with her stressful studies on the way to certification as a physiotherapist, Adora has fallen into a local community theatre as a way to have fun and make new friends. She's made a place for herself there and everything is going great when she lands one of the lead roles of their newest play - until she shows up to the first rehearsal and the person cast in the role of her romantic opposite is Catra, who she hasn't seen since the breakup eight years ago when she left Catra behind to move across the country for a soccer scholarship.

    But there's no denying the obvious chemistry between them when they get on stage, and the director won't hear of anybody else playing the roles.

    Summary

    "For the last four years, Catra’s routine had been the same.

    Every day, she woke up just after dawn; left the comfort of her own bed to go prepare food for her, her husband, and whatever guests they might have; and checked the supply of ale in the cellar.

    Then, she would make sure all the mugs and glasses were clean. Once people started rolling in, usually just after noon, the bar would be wiped down and the musicians she employed would be setting up. She would make idle conversation with the others and finish cleaning up until the first groups of men looking for a drink showed up with pockets that clinked and jingled with coins, and then the rest of the night would be spent cleaning mugs and pouring ale.

    Catra had resigned herself to this life with a sort of detached acceptance.

    Then, a Rebellion captain walked into her establishment, and she knew instantly that something was about to change."

    or, Captain Adam Fairchild, who harbors a secret that could get him killed, goes in search of a spy to help the Rebellion's cause. He finds it — and much, much more — in a tavern-keeper's wife.

    Summary

    It's been two years since the Battle of Bright Moon. The war drags on, the balance of power shifting back and forth, never enough for one side to win. This wasn’t the first time they’d been here, not by a long shot. They’d danced around each other for years, and yet here they were again. Catra standing in front of Adora. Adora kneeling chained between two pillars even she’d have a hard time moving. Now Catra just has to figure out what the rest of her plan was.

    Summary

    "They can't be serious," Catra complained. "Did you notice that Glimmer's list of suitors didn't include anything about personality? Or hobbies?"
    She was looking straight at Adora, as though expecting an answer.
    Catra did speak to Adora like this sometimes, like they were equals. She did it quite often actually, especially when it was just the two of them. But Adora always felt uncertain how to respond. The princess was such an otherworldly figure to her. Larger than life. More beautiful than the stories insisted. It seemed incredible that the princess even knew Adora existed. Surreal.
    And yet, at times, it even felt natural.
    "I did notice," Adora said. "A glaring omission, your majesty, I agree."

    Catra grinned.

    "Tell me Adora," said the princess. "If you had a list of suitors laid out in front of you, what would you want to see on their biographies?"

    OR:
    Adora is a knight in Princess Catra's personal guard. Catra doesn't want to marry some random prince. Adora doesn't want her to get married at all.
