Alexiares, literal Greek god and playboy, is also Alex, when he’s slumming in the mortal earthly realm. But when he falls in love with adorable human librarian Rob, how long can he keep the mortal mask in place – especially when his mother, the goddess Hebe, does not approve? Novelette, approximately 14000 words, adult language.
Francis really likes his job in media management. He really likes his boss, Daniel. Okay, maybe he has a tiny – read HUGE – crush on him. Is a business trip to Vegas inevitably doomed to Vegas-type trouble, when they head off to cover a celebrity wedding celebrating newly-legalised Vegas gay marriage, and the reality show it’s a part of?
Doves shot upwards
Snowfall in reverse
the groom, and his groom
fine handsome catch
every bit his match
waiting on a promise,
all dolled up and fine
forever be mine
Vows are made
Doves are flown
Fizz all downed
Dance in dreams
(Too much cake. Allowed a sip of fizz
Parents, parents, why d’you do this?)
hand in hand and
one last vow
wedding day done
It begins now.

Caspar is a new post-grad with no money, no job, no boyfriend and no options. Then his sweet old aunt Gertie leaves him a cupcake bakery in her will.

Has Caspar inherited more than he bargained for?

‘He doesn’t want to play at brother wolves. Romulus and Remus can go take a hike, the romance of their tale is lost on him entirely. (God damn Ree for making him into Scheherezade. For reading him more stories night after night, since drawing him into an intimacy like ropes about his chest and arms. All the fault of Jane Eyre that first day: Ree has woven a whole romance about their reunion, as well as their boyhood amity, and now must replay it constantly. His own Mr Rochester: but Penn remembers, Miss Jane had a few pithy opinions about the man, however infatuated.
But anyway. A three, four mile run? After the night he’s had already?’
-Alex Ankarr, ‘Wolf Runaway’.
And if I had
magic power that could
I would not enchant your heart
Would not even think to start
Would only let you know I would
Not even do it though I could
Preferring means of sweat and work
write you poems !¡! — like a twerp
Honest courting, tried and true
Yours the power, up to you.
And if that didn’t work, perhaps a teensy little charm.

Chris is a fire-fighter: a good guy, a guy in uniform, a guy who’s into other guys. He’s good at his job, he’s attractive, he’s… lonely. And he just inexplicably dislikes the super-hot new recruit at the station, Dane. Really. Detests him. Can’t bear him. Well, there has to be some reason to explain the sparks and the friction and the heat between them, anyway…
