Meanwhile, on the edge of human civilization, freelance journalist Temple Argent and scientist Kathryn Tamashio lay a trap for a murderer. En route from a planet-wide laboratory to a rugged frontier world, they find themselves fighting for their lives.

Steve Morrison doesn’t know how to balance being gay and a baseball jock. His indecision may have just cost him Milton’s friendship.

Fairy mutt Honoria and her purebred wife Shelagh are knee-deep in junk mail and overdue bills. Their bachelor pad apartment isn't big enough for the two of them and they spend their days at each others' throats.
Despite the difficulties of city life, Honoria's dead-set against using their magical powers. Even when Shelagh devises a plot to make money off fairy gold, her girl won't go for it. Honoria would rather steal the old-fashioned way than end up in a military facility after the government catches wind of their abilities -- which isn't so far-fetched a concern.
When Shelagh insists they can earn a living off cash-for-gold services, the irritable couple begins a career in small-time thievery and find a life of crime provides a welcome boost to their sex life. Who knew breaking and entering would be such a turn-on?
