    Summary

    Ever since he was young, Ezra Fell dreamed of adventure. He dreamed of far off destinations and dashing heroes. He dreamed of danger and excitement. He dreamed of exploration and romance. Now, as an adult, his life is much less exotic locales and much more boring political dinner parties with his fiancé, Gabriel Messenger. But a chance meeting with a literary agent might be his last chance at the adventure he sought as a child.

    Gabriel would surely support him.

    Right?

    And he could never fall for the brash and abrasive Mr. Anthony J. Crowley.

    Right?

    It was just one silly little trip to find a silly little amulet in Egypt.

    Right?

    Summary

    “Do you have a personal interest in this case, Malfoy?” Harry asked, arms crossed and blocking the view of the body behind him.

    “Not at all.” Draco smiled sweetly, cuddled into the side of tonight’s date. “Although I did briefly own that painting until it proved to be stolen.” He helpfully pointed to the Renaissance portrait a few metres to their left.

    “Why is it always so complicated with you?”

    (Or — Draco solves crimes that don’t technically belong to him and Harry tries not to fall in love. Co-Starring: Hermione, High Heels, and Hiccups along the way. #dat 1920s lyfe)

    Summary

    'And now ladies and gentlemen, the Kitty Kat Lounge is pleased to present, our very own little songbird, the woman in red, Lizzy Bennet!' Hoots and whistles mingled with applause as the curtain opened to reveal a small, dark-haired woman in a red dress. William heard her before he saw her; her voice was deep, sultry, and smoky as she sang the first words of a slow-tempoed 'I Ain't Got Nobody'. Every cell in his body responded to her in a way he could hardly comprehend. By the time she came into his line of vision, he was enraptured. When he saw her, he was a lost man.

    Her black hair was short and marcelled, accentuating her fine features. Her eyes were equally dark, but even from his faraway seat William could see them sparkle with vivacity. The red dress she wore was tight along her boyish chest and hips, with fringe beginning at waist level to decorate the front of the dress. It ended at a scandalous location just above her knees. Everything about her was slight, but she exuded solid strength and confidence. This was not a woman to be trifled with. William found himself wanting to trifle with her most desperately.

    Summary

    Moving to New Orleans to start up her rehabilitation hotel for criminals hasn't been all berries for Charlie, especially if everybody thinks you're some Dumb Dora with a complete horseshit plan.

    And it's another jam that she's starting to get stuck on Alastor, the charming yet eccentric radio host next door who's never fully dressed without a smile.

    But she's all smiles too, and that's made her out to be quite the dish to Alastor - in all senses of the word - and boy, was he ready to be entertained.
