  1. March 26, 1801 The Winter Palace St. Petersburg, Russia As Granger got out of the vozok, he noted that while the temperatures were still frigid by British standards, the weather was not as cold as it had been. Not only that, but Granger was arriving at 5:00 in the evening, and it was still light outside. Spring was due to make its debut, and when that happened, the Royal Navy would begin its assault on the Danish fleet. Granger had not gotten any indication that the new Tsar would change Russia’s course and try to repair the rift with Britain, but that had been imp

    When you’re 17, what else is more important than sex? 😀

    February 1, 2004 The Great Barrier Reef, Australia Will I woke up alone in my bed and sighed. It had been two days since Connie went back to Sydney, and while I had been calm and mellow when he said goodbye, now that he was gone, I really missed him. I knew he felt the same way, since I got a bunch of texts and emails from him. I sighed, stretched out, then threw on some sweatpants and a T-shirt, deciding that was good enough attire for breakfast. Based on the look Stef gave me when I walked into the main room, I may have been wrong about that. Stef and Grand wer
  5. March 23, 1801 St. Michael’s Castle St. Petersburg, Russia As soon as the Tsarevich left, Jacobs locked the door and joined Granger and Winkler in front of the fire. “I wasn’t expecting that, my lord,” Jacobs said. “Until this day, I had not had an experience where a member of a Royal or Imperial family asked me to hide them in their palace,” Granger mused. “Life with you, my lord, is always one big adventure,” Winkler observed drily. “I try to keep things exciting for you, Winkler,” Granger said. He was euphoric from having been fucked by the

    I made myself laugh with that one...one of those times it was funny to me but probably no one else.

    January 27, 2004 Hayman Island, Australia Will “That rocked!” I said enthusiastically as I hopped off the Jet Ski. Someone from the resort was there to take them from us, letting me, Connie, and Tom simply walk up the beach to our room. While the hotel was nice, it was the top-notch service that made this place incredible. “Thank you so much!” Tom said. “You’re welcome,” I said. He had such an easygoing nature when he wasn’t working. When he was working, he was still easygoing but he was also stressed, making sure things were done right. “W
  8. March 23, 1801 St. Michael’s Castle St. Petersburg, Russia The only nice thing about residing in the Tsar’s palace was Granger’s room, which was large and ornate. It even had an anteroom which proved to be the perfect place for Jacobs and Winkler to lodge. Granger got up and strolled over to windows, where he could see Stroganov Palace in the distance. He stared longingly at that place where he’d found happiness. He refocused his attention back on the interior of his room. It looked like the kind of space that was reserved for visiting dignitaries with one glarin

    January 25, 2004 Hayman Island, Australia Will I heard footsteps, and that prompted me to push Tom away. He looked alarmed and a little offended by my abrupt gesture of rejection until he heard the voices to go with the footsteps. We started walking, and when a couple walked by us, we tried not to look sheepish. “I’m really sorry about that. That was really unprofessional,” he began to gush as soon as they were out of earshot. “I thought it was really nice,” I said. He grinned back at me. “You know, even if you did work for me, you don’t have to fuck me.

    Sadly, I cannot afford to quit my day job and write. 🙁 I honestly haven’t thought through who came up with the forgery, but your hypothesis and analysis are intriguing. Well done!

    Thanks everyone, for your kind words and feedback. I was pretty happy with the way this one turned out, and I'm glad you are too.
  12. I wondered where you'd slot in "Down Under". That was a good choice. Bette Davis Eyes...that was unexpected but awesome

  14. March 18, 1801 Stroganov Palace St. Petersburg, Russia Granger and Daventry sat around the dinner table as usual, only the mood was not as pleasant as it normally was. The Stroganovs were as polite as ever, but there was an underlying tension in the air. Granger began to wonder if their hosts would evict them from this palace, or if they were just concerned. “I am fearful there is to be some action taken against you,” Alexei said quietly after the servants had left them alone. “What makes you think that?” Daventry asked. “I heard that the Tsar

    January 24, 2004 Uluru, Australia Will “Who did you talk to about this?” I demanded. Tom pulled out his phone and looked at his call log. “This guy,” he said, and gave me the guy’s name and number. “Alright. Now go back in there and if they ask, tell them everything’s fine,” I instructed Tom. “Tell them I just had a call to make.” “Alright,” he said, a bit disappointed that I’d taken over the situation, but this was a big deal, and there’s no way I was going to delegate it. The first person I called was Cecil. “Good evening,” he said i

  22. March 11, 1801 Stroganov Palace St. Petersburg, Russia “My lord, this package was just delivered for you,” the butler said to Granger. He handed Granger the sealed canvas packet that clearly contained correspondence. “I would be careful upon opening it, my lord, as the messenger was nothing more than a street urchin.” “I appreciate your advice, but it seems to me that it only contains papers, and it is much too small for a bomb,” Granger said, trying not to roll his eyes at the man’s caution. “To ensure the safety of the household, I

    January 24, 2004 Sydney, Australia Will “Why the fuck did we have to pack a bunch of clothes? I thought we were flying out and flying back?” Connie asked, even as he drove toward the airport. It was really early, so I yawned back at him. “Tom said that it’s going to be fucking hot at Uluru, and we may want to chill out afterward and take a shower,” I said. “Besides, since you got all spiritual on me and decided you can’t climb the mountain, I had to come up with other things to do. And that means we’ll probably spend the night at Uluru.” “What did

    Ah, but Granger was granted preferential precedence when his father was elevated to his dukedom.
