    Summary

    The first night out from Havana, he stumbled into the small cabin while Rose was brushing her hair. The scent of cigar smoke from the saloon above accompanied him into the room, and when he caught sight of her, he immediately launched into poetry.

    A Crimson Angel coda.

    Summary

    There were those who believed Olympe could summon wolves at her command, and snakes and roaches as well. She only laughed at this. It would be very convenient if she had been given a wolf-servant to do her bidding, instead of being afflicted with an unpredictable wolf-policeman with his own allegiances, bent about his own business and prying into hers for reasons of his own.

    Summary

    It's Carnival season in New Orleans, meaning that Benjamin January is playing piano every night, but when one of Rose's students' brother is accused of murdering his wife, what can January do but agree to look into the case? As he does, he learns more about the relationships of those involved, of his friends and family, and even of himself, than he could have imagined.

    Summary

    January is surprised to realize how fond he is becoming of Shaw, and discusses it with Hannibal. Shaw overhears some of this, but only some, and unfortunately comes away with exactly the wrong idea about January's feelings.

    (Or, can I take a Shakespeare sonnet and a misunderstanding worthy of a romcom, and create a short little gay romance set in another author's 1830s New Orleans? I can sure try!)

    Summary

    A plotless bit of self-indulgent stuff best summarized by a quote from the work:

    "January swung the shutters open quickly, and, despite recognizing the voice, had to look twice to understand what he was seeing. Then he blinked, and the apparent bundle of muddy kindling resting against the railing opposite his room blinked back, and resolved itself into the half-collapsed form of Lieutenant Abishag Shaw."

    Summary

    “Oh. Well, I’ve been better, maestro, been a hell of a lot better to tell truth.” Shaw stared at him for a long moment, and he was stunned to see honest to God grief in his eyes. Even when Shaw had just lost his brother he had been so much more himself than this lost man currently standing before him. “Not that I mean to put anything extra on your shoulders, I’m sure you’ve got enough of your own shit going on at present moment, but it seems like I’ve just lost my job.”

    Summary

    It should have been more awkward than it was--it should have been unthinkable--having her lover’s wife here in her parlor. But Chloë had a way of refusing to allow for awkwardness by refusing to acknowledge it, and as she settled herself on the striped silk settee and folded her small gloved hands in her lap, she looked as composed as she did anywhere else Dominique had ever seen her. It gave Dominique rather a dizzy feeling. 

    Chloë, Dominique, gossip, code-breaking, burglary, and blackmail.

    Summary

    He was so caught up in misery, particularly the misery that came upon him when he thought of the raw look that tended to linger on Shaw's face when he was too tired to hide it, that it took him a while to realise that there was a wolf before him.
