    Summary

    To Sir Gregory Lestrade, commander in the rebel army, fortune could perhaps have been kinder. When his forces are decimated on the battlefield, Gregory finds himself fallen into the hands of an enemy Marquess—a man whose sharp mind, imperious disdain and impenetrable castle walls are legendary.

    But the Marquess has a proposal to restore Sir Gregory to grace. All he needs to do is make a choice.

    His life—and the lives of his men—or his honour?

    Summary

    Since resigning from his former position of power, life has felt empty for Mycroft. Deciding to adopt a cat, he instead finds himself the new owner of an extremely skittish greyhound. While in a pet boutique purchasing supplies for his new canine companion, he runs into an old acquaintance he'd always wanted to know better.

    Greg has been enjoying life since he quit the force, but nothing has been as exciting as running into his old crush Mycroft Holmes again. And now he's gone and invited him to share coffee.

    Summary

    [Mystrade Supernatural/Sci-fi AU]

    23rd-century London is a divided city. Two hundred years of genetic tampering has fractured humanity into subspecies, not all of whom are willing to get along. The capital's crime-ridden streets are now home to some fairly fantastic variants of human—some of them more dangerous than others. For DI Greg Lestrade, Cross-Human Relations at Scotland Yard, it's all just part of the day job.

    But when a horrifying discovery forces him to seek the help of Mycroft Holmes, Head of Criminal Psychology, Greg might just be tested past his limits. Mycroft is unpleasant, unforgiving, and famously impossible to please—but if Greg needs anyone right now, it's a vampire expert.

    With dangerous forces fast on their tail, Greg and Mycroft must work together to avert the vampire threat before it's too late.
