Surviving on the streets of Paris as an artist´s model had been difficult, but Laura wanted to be remembered on canvas, as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec´s paintings had been immortalized. In another place and time, Laura´s alliance with the rich and powerful of Paris might have cost her head. However, this was 21st-century France, where the rich and the poor had learned to negotiate tolerance. Olivette, Franz, Rudi, Gretchen, Martine, Gaston, and Nicolai chose Montmartre, where they had become soldiers in a war against ennui and mediocrity, putting on their canvases and taking to their beds - other men´s wives, other wives´ husbands, and the whores willing to follow them into battle. When one of the richest men in Europe offers to make Laura his wife, she must choose which one she has become. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Ember.

Some of you know and love Prince Breslyn already, others may meet him here for the first time. This is how Bres got his introduction to humans and formed his everlasting love of them. It is a short story/novella. Fact one: By tradition and treaty, Fae do not interfere with the human world - it is against the rules. Fact two: For a Royal Fae prince who suffers from the ennui of immortality, watching and interacting with humans - especially lovely, spirited human females - can be entertaining. Fact three: When entertainment changes to affection, and affection becomes love, rules will be broken. His name is Breslyn, Prince of Dagda of the Tuatha De. He is a royal Fae, immortal and endowed with more than eye candy looks. He is a being with immeasurable powers but life for him lacked something - so he looked around, and found... humans. Watching their lives and interactions, from another dimension filled him with feelings he had thought long lost in the ennui of immortality. The more he watched - the more addicted to their antics he became. An affection for the human race grew inside the heart Fae are not supposed to have, and it was inevitable that he began to have preferences with regards to them. In 1314, when Scotland´s rule was in jeopardy and the British were about to take more than they should, he chose a side - and then he saw her, and nothing would ever be the same for the prince ever again... 1.
