    Summary

    “So. Tickling.”

    “Apparently?” says Jon, and he doesn’t cross his arms self-consciously, because he is quite capable of calmly discussing sex like a competent adult, thank you. Or, rather, discussing a non-sex thing that might, possibly, be a bit unexpectedly sexy.

    “I’m not gonna lie, Jon, that’s...that’s pretty cute.”

    “You think everything I do is cute.”

    Summary

    "It occurs to me that - ah - I may have forgotten to mention something, earlier," says Jon, somewhat belatedly.

    It also occurs to Jon that the traditional time to mention this particular detail would be before letting one's boyfriend shove his hand down one's pants for the first time, but, well. In his defense, he'd been so dreading the goddamn sex talk, and so relieved to finally have it out of the way, that discussing certain specifics of the act had somehow slipped his mind entirely.

    "You think?" says Martin, in that particular tone of fond incredulity that Jon finds so reassuring. The tone that means 'you've done something ridiculous and I've decided to find it charming.'

    Summary

    Martin was almost used to what they had to do now to survive - what Jon needed to do to survive. They sought out the monsters that plagued London, they got rid of said monsters, and Jon was fed and the world was a little brighter afterwards, or at least that's what he told himself to feel better about it. Going into The Stranger's lair was supposed to be just another one of those nights. Break in, endure a brief but intense struggle against primal fear itself, then leave the place and its inhabitants all in a smouldering heap.

    If only it had been that simple.

    Summary

    In 2019, Georgie Barker needs a new start. After a tragic event sours her creative output, she finds herself in possession of Magnus Hall, a country home from a relative she never knew. All she wants is a break from ghosts and ghouls; What she gets instead is a local legend, a haunting mystery and an ally in Melanie King, looking for a way to restart her YouTube series after the internal collapse of her show.

    In 1949, Martin Blackwood needs a new start. After his last job went sour, he finds himself newly employed by the mysterious owner of Magnus Hall, Jonathan Sims. All he wants is a job that will pay him enough to take care of his mother and not look too closely at his qualifications; what he gets instead is a generational power struggle, the flagging efforts of his new boss to gain the upper hand, and maybe a chance at love along the way.

    With supernatural events escalating for Melanie and Georgie, they find themselves needing to ask two simple questions; one, who or what is haunting Magnus Hall?

    Two: How do they stop it from killing again?
