    Summary

    After a disastrous interview, crime novelist Israel Hands abruptly retired, leaving his popular Detective Leyendecker series one book short of finished. For the last 10 years, he's been content to work as an editor at Edward Teach's small press. But now Ed's working on a merger with Stede Bonnet's press, and Izzy's expected to work with their star author: romance novelist L. Steele.

    L. Steele turns out to be Lucius Spriggs, twenty years younger than Izzy and flirts like its breathing. Worst of all, Lucius recognizes Izzy as Israel Hands.

    Avoiding Lucius's questions about the unfinished series or Izzy himself is not going to be all that simple...

    Summary

    He’s finally here in this lovely and quiet little beach cottage, and the rest of the year seems to stretch out infinitely before him. Time will pass, though, and it will pass faster than he realises, but in the meantime he will stop worrying about writer’s block and deadlines and not even having the foggiest clue what his next novel’s going to be about, and live.

    New York Times-bestselling author Viktor Nikiforov arrives in the sleepy seaside town of Torvill Cove to cure his writer's block. After encountering local wallflower Yuuri Katsuki at a party, he discovers that this mysterious dark-haired man has a couple secrets up his sleeve.

    And Viktor will be damned if he doesn't find out just what those secrets are.

    (The YOI Selkie AU, edited and reuploaded)

    Summary

    "I've always been the good-time guy," Tim finally says. "At work. With friends. With people who want to fuck me. 'Tim's always good for a laugh, just invite him out every few months then never talk to him in-between.' 'Tim's good for a bonk. Don't worry he never gets attached.' 'Tim will take it in stride. He always does.'"

    Having always used humor and sex as a deflection and a wall to keep people out, Gerry knows exactly what he means. He can't say he has a ton of people who would drop everything to be there when he's hurting. Not that he would drop his own act long enough to actually ask for the help anyway.

    He realizes this isn't at all what he thought. What he's seeing right now is something rare, an overlooked treasure. His favorite kind.

    "People always want me around to be fun and then they never want to be around me when I'm like..." Tim gestures at himself, "this."

    Before he can control himself, before he can suppress the thought, Gerry thinks, I do.

    Followed quickly by, Oh fuck.

    Summary

    “Nana, huh?” Jeno’s eyes crinkle. “Can I call you that, too?

    “Only if you get something sweeter in return,” Jaemin teases. Determined, he walks a few steps closer, partly because he wants a better angle, but mostly because he likes seeing Jeno squirm. “Now smile big for me, pretty.”

    “Pretty,” Jeno echoes, visibly pleased. “I like that.”

    Through the viewfinder, Jaemin can see Jeno blush five shades darker than his hair, features softened with the slightest bite of his lip. It’s with the snap of the shutter that he decides to keep this moment for himself. “I knew you would.”

    (In a world of all things hot and high-end, some trends simply change with the seasons. Jaemin and Jeno just hope that whatever they have going on is here to stay.)
