    August 13, 2016 by Lyn

    We continue the description series with Lady Maureen, who lives in the Village and helps to raise the children, and Manira, our mystery Fifth Cohort.

    Lady Maureen, FoxGlove

    Maureen is, to some eyes, a study in contradictions; matronly, sexy, motherly, with a feel of an Old West saloon about her even now, Irish, kitsune.… Read on

    Reid sealed the last envelope, and stacked them neatly in a pile on his desk. There weren’t that many – he didn’t speak to his father, and his mother and siblings had proven far more human than he had. Of what few loves he had had through the decades, most were also gone, and a few simply wished not to be reminded of him.… Read on

    The summer between years one and two of the Addergoole School

    “Are you sure?” Even as she asked, Ginger was setting out food on Maureen’s wide patio table.

    “I’m sure. You’re doing fine, dear, and people have relaxed around you. Now the trick is to make them think twice.”

    “But you said it.… Read on

    Year One of the Addergoole School

    It took Ginger Cayenne a week to end up crying in Maureen’s kitchen. The former madam was patient with the new teacher as she sniffled, supplying her with ginger snaps, laced coffee, and tissues before finally asking, “Now, what’s wrong, dear?”

    “Everybody hates me,” the girl sniffled.… Read on

    This story begins the July before the first year of the Addergoole School, on July 20th, 1995.

    The school was ready, the walls painted and paneled, the books on the shelves, the wards set, and in less than two months, the first students would step foot inside Regine’s project.… Read on

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    In the weeks and months after A Man’s Man.

    The whoring was easy. If it was more complicated than it had been under his previous masters, it was almost more pleasant. He found the clients’ desire for conversation an entertaining novelty, and the one time he’d ended up with unwanted bruises, Luke had taken the client in question aside for a long conversation that had lead to a heartfelt, terrified apology and a couple very expensive gifts.… Read on

    This story takes place immediately after Yes, Mistress.

    Regine had been driving all day, with two bathroom breaks and a stop for lunch at a family restaurant where neither of them fit in and only Ambrus seemed to care. She seemed indefatigable; she also seemed entirely comfortable riding for twelve hours in silence.… Read on

    Valentine’s Day, 1922, Albany, NY

    Maureen looked at the card in her hands for a long moment, struggling to find something tactful to say.

    It wasn’t that it was in any way a bad card. It was, for a Valentine card, a beautiful specimen, with paper lace and flattering artwork, hand-made, with a handpainted, realistically styled, albeit idealized, watercolor portrait of herself (although she thought the fox stole the woman in the painting was wearing to be in a bit of bad taste, all things considered).… Read on

    You know our love was meant to be
    The kind of love that lasts forever
    And I need you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    “Are you nervous?” Kai asked, for what had to be the seventeenth time.… Read on
