There’s very little Jacob Lee wouldn’t do to please his Donathan -- except get a tattoo. The way Jacob Lee figures it, his lover’s got more than enough ink for both of them with his tasty rainbow body, and Jacob Lee has a major phobia when it comes to needles. But as Jacob Lee learns more about the art of tattooing, his lover’s past, and their shared dreams for the future, he finds it might just be possible to face and overcome his fears after all.

Johnny and Charlie, from "Jobless in January: Johnny Smith", have enjoyed a casual relationship for nearly a year, meeting up once or twice a month. The trip to Dorset should have been a fun reunion after six weeks apart and it shouldn't have had Charlie walking out on the first morning. Johnny is left at a guest house with more questions than answers and no Charlie to answer them.
Johnny has to decide if he wants to fight for their casual relationship, and the hope that it might lead to something more, or just crawl away and lick his wounds. Is Charlie worth fighting for even if Johnny knew where to find him?

Eighteen-year-old Fergus has been spending the past six summers in Belgium, living with a host family for a break from the tensions at home in Belfast. This is his last July visiting before he goes to work in his Da's factory, and his on-again-off-again summer friend Niels heads to university.
On a rainy day, Niels drags Fergus on an impromptu detour to escape the boring weather and Niels's younger sister. They head to the village's abandoned fort to summon ghosts and end up summoning far more than they expected. This is a short, sexy story of fleeting summer romance and the power of the unknown.
