    Summary

    Rudyard Funn runs a funeral home in the village of Piffling Vale. It used to be the only one. It isn't any more.
    Rudyard isn't a very popular man and what he lacks in social grace and manners he makes up for in almost lethal levels of ineptitude. But despite being a man of many flaws and few redeeming qualities even he can't be blamed for all the predicament and plight that happens around Piffling Vale.
    After all, even Rudyard Funn couldn't ruin EVERYTHING.

    Surely.

    Summary

    It is, oddly enough, a simple thing that breaks you.

    It's not the explosion going off too early, or the fact that there were three more innocent civilians in that building than there were supposed to be. It’s not the way your arm and shoulder aches from where the blast threw you back against the concrete, or the ringing in your ears for a few seconds afterwards that reminds you too closely of the times you’ve really, really messed things up.

    What actually breaks you is small, so small in comparison to everything around you, and that shakes you more than any of the rest of the situation.

    Summary

    The thing about sharing part of your soul with someone is that there are many other things included in the package, things people usually don't talk about.
    Like magic, or feelings, or even scars and wounds.
    Simon and Baz have always been fated in more ways than one—with their souls interlaced, there's only so much they can hide from each other. And what's worse than having to share everything you'd rather keep buried deep down inside your chest with none other than your sworn enemy?
    (Not being able to stop thinking about them, for example.)
    (Or being hopelessly in love with them, maybe.)

    Summary

    After the war with Napoleon, all Simon wants is peace and quiet in the country with his friend Penny, but night terrors and panic attacks weren't the only surprises awaiting him back home. Dowager Lady Salisbury saw news of Simon's exploits abroad and arrived on his doorstep with the shocking revelation that he was her grandson. At his grandmother's insistence, Simon accompanied his newfound family to London, overwrought by excitement at the chance to finally belong, and anxiety from the struggle to fit his new role.
    Baz is heir to two very wealthy and well-respected families in England, but that hasn't stopped tongues from wagging. Baz has always been more interested in fashion and philosophy than in helping his father run the estate, and he refuses to settle down. Despite his recent sterling showing at Oxford, Baz's father has begun to lose all patience with his recalcitrant son. Matters went from bad to worse when Baz's fiancé threw him over only days after their engagement became public, rekindling rumours the family hoped to quash. Against his father's wishes, Baz has trooped off to London for another season with his friends, but the looming death knell of his good name has soured his last act of rebellion.
