    Summary

    "By the middle of the third verse, Alex’s heart was racing; it felt like a fight. Not the music -- they were twining together perfectly, Michael’s honey baritone with Alex’s brassy tenor, mixing and swirling.

    The fight was the control over his instrument. He kept wanting to smile and the Es got musical theater bright until he got them under control. Michael glanced at him during a repeated chord and Alex gulped, his entire throat getting tense, the next note coming in sharp. He fixed the next note, but barely. Once Michael got to the “Amazing Grace” descant at the end, Alex felt -- free. Falling. Full."

    Alex Manes moves to Roswell for the first time at age 27. He joins the Queer Chorus of Roswell and meets a stunning baritone with a secret that might blow-up his whole world.

    Summary

    “Michael, this was cute when we were kids, but this has got to stop.”

    Michael frowned as he looked around his apartment. He didn’t really see what he had to stop. Sure, he had a particularly strong interest in old fashioned love stories and Jane Austen in particular, but he still had a job and a place of his own. His special interests weren’t destroying his life, so why did he need to stop? Perhaps his place was a little too covered in floral and he had a stack of books a little too high, but that was his own business. And the large cardboard cutouts of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet respectively were just as personal.

    Summary

    Alex Manes, renowned Private Detective, is resting board the Orient Express, after solving an open-and-shut case in Istanbul, when tragedy strikes and one of the passengers is discovered murdered in a locked cabin. Knowing he might be the only one who can solve this locked-room mystery, Alex takes it upon himself to solve this - seemingly - simple case.

    Things quickly take a turn for the complicated as a 10-year-old murder case becomes connected to the current victim, the passengers might not be as trustworthy as they seem and Alex runs into a few old acquaintances.

    The case may not be as simple as Alex first assumed, and soon he is faced with an impossible choice.

    Will Alex solve this case, or does a murderer walk free?

    Summary

    “I got you a ride.”

    Michael waited for the punch line, the “just kidding,” but Liz just looked at him with a big smile. He couldn’t help but smile back and tackle her to the bed. 

    “You’re the best, Ortecho! The fucking best!”

    She laughed, gentle and so full of affection even Michael could feel it. “Don’t thank me yet.” 

    Michael’s question of why was interrupted by a light knocking on the door. 

    “Come in!” Michael’s face became a scowl when Alex Manes entered the room.

    Alex Manes. The kid Michael fell hopelessly head over heels for when he first saw him. Alex Manes who was kind and gentle and would do anything for you. Anything, as long as you weren’t Michael Guerin.

    Summary

    Michael and Alex have been dating for three months, and have gotten to know each other’s pasts, but there’s still one secret that Michael hasn’t told Alex, or anyone really: he makes himself throw up sometimes. He isn’t sure why he does it or why he refuses to stop, but he does know that he can’t tell anyone about it, especially his boyfriend. If Alex knew, he’d try to make Michael stop, and Michael doesn’t want to—can’t—stop.
