The Orion Spur 2: The Enemy Inside by Harpy & HkdonXetG [Original/Alt/Complete] updated version

After leaving The Kalenth Hegemony for freedom on Trengos, Kikola Karthen and Tehvay Veilan settle into their new lives. New jobs, new family, and new friends affect the women in different ways.

No longer having status and power, Kikola's world has become much smaller. She struggles to find acceptance in a world where her kind is seen as the enemy.

For Tehvay, it opens up a world much larger than she has ever known. Enjoying the approval she receives in speaking out against slavery, she finds an acceptance that Kikola does not.

Their differing levels of acceptance, and Tehvay's memories of past abuse, put a strain on their relationship. It is further strained by political turmoil in The Kalenth Hegemony that brings chaos and tragedy to their very doorstep.

Harrison-Starr: Holy Matrimony! by Norsebard [Original/Alt/Complete]

The unpredictable, unstoppable, undaunted and uncombed private investigators Regina Harrison and Stella Starr return once more with more zaniness, rapid-fire banter and tons of sweet lovin'. Stella has taken it upon herself to organize the wedding of her oldest and best friend Laura 'Law' Cruz. To reduce the risk of everything turning into utter chaos, she's helped by a few steady hands she and Regina have worked with over the years; even so, the strain, the stress and the important speech she's to hold threaten to send Stella hurtling head-first into a bitter defeat. In short, it's business as usual for the Harrison-Starr Detective Agency, but don't worry - they know what they're doing…

Let's welcome a new bard, this month!

Pines Falls: The Forbidden Truth by Kim Attridge [Original/Alt/Complete]

Katelyn Jensen decided it was finally time to return to her hometown of West Pines, to become an associate of her father’s Law firm, alongside her Fiancé Richard Sinclair. Life was going exactly as she had planned. That was until she became acquainted to her brother’s best friend, the lucrative West Pines unconventional tattooist, Sami Wilson. Both women find themselves in unfamiliar territory, both fighting each other and themselves as morals, loyalty and love are put to the test.

The Orion Spur 1: Family Business by Harpy & HkdonXetG [Original/Alt/Complete] updated version

For over two thousand years, humankind had colonised the local area of the galaxy known as The Orion Spur. In that time, factions rose and fell. Some were conquered. Others were conquerors. One such faction, The Kalenth Hegemony, a rigidly oppressive regime, had become one of the dominant powers in the region.

Kikola ap Karthen is a young woman of privilege whose future was planned from birth by The Kalenth Hegemony.

Having just graduated from the Hegemony's Elit Military Academy, Kikola is set to fulfil her destiny with a single-minded purpose. That is, until she meets Tehvay, a slave, and suddenly everything she has been taught is turned upside down.

The two women, from opposite ends of the Hegemony's strict social caste system, find common ground that blossoms into friendship and eventually into so much more. But their feelings for each other will force Kikola to risk everything – her position, her family, her destiny – for a chance at happiness and a life of her own choosing with the woman she loves.
