Title: His Fatal Kiss of Life  for ds_harlequin    
Pairing: BF/RV
Warnings: AU, Angst, Vampires
Rating: FRM/Rish
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Paul Haggis. No profit derived.
Word Count: 8,880
Feedback: Oh, yes

Author’s Note: This is my second entry for[info]ds_harlequin.. I have shamelessly borrowed the  another actual Harlequin title, His Wedding Ring of Revenge, and manipulated it for this fic.  

My apologies to the prompter. I intended to have this done on time then realized I had written more in my head than on actual paper or you know monitor. There is a lot of vampire canon from Stoker to Buffy and I haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel except where it facilitated the prompt.

Now I am free do read the other fics, yay.

Prompt 79 - A is an immortal vampire, and by law he can only 'turn' one mortal in his lifetime - his life mate. But when mortal B is fatally wounded saving A's life from P, a rather inept vampire hunter, A has to save the near-stranger, and the only way to save B is to turn him. But B hates the thought of drinking blood, even if modern vampires get it delivered from the blood bank now, and B's been trying to get off the night shift for three years, so B isn't pleased to find out that this means he'll be on the night shift forever! Also, P is still after A - and now P's after B, too.

Title: Canadian Man, Blackmailed Groom for  ds_harlequin    
Pairing: BF/RV
Warnings: AU, Angst
Rating: FRT/PG
Word Count: 7800
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Paul Haggis. No profit derived. And I put them right back where I found them which was snuggled under a blanket together.

Author’s Note: This is my entry for Prompt 31. Harlequin titles are wickedly long and literal which I hadn't realized. (i.e. The Italian’s Inexperienced Mistress and The Frenchman’s Marriage Demand). I have shamelessly borrowed an actual title Sicilian Husband, Blackmailed Bride and made the obvious change.

For some reason I was under the impression that actual Harlequins weren’t angsty. They are. Which is good for me because it's hard for me to do anything else. The key, I guess is that they have happy endings.  I made perhaps more of an attempt to write in the Harlequin style this year than last, but in the end it's probably not as Harlequinesque as it could be.

Prompt 31. Blackmail forced Ray Vecchio into marriage—although he could not be forced to bed his Canadian spouse. But Benton Fraser was as fair as he was determined to be a proper husband….

Title: Lucky in Love
Author: belmanoir
Prompt: 80. Character A isn't much of a gambler, but seems to have either skill or dumb luck whenever s/he does happen to play. When a high-stakes poker game ends, A finds him/herself the lucky winner... of Character B. B's significant other, C, got carried away on betting fever and too much alcohol, and gambled him/her away. From the way C spoke, A had thought C was betting a racehorse or a beloved pet or a car or something, and is horrified to find B is actually a person. A of course immediately releases B from the conditions of the bet, but to no avail.

B is so furious to have been gambled away like so much property, s/he proclaims s/he will honor the terms of the bet, and spend six weeks (or however long a span of time was wagered) with A. Over the course of the following six (or however many) weeks, B makes him/herself a general nuisance to A, hanging around, refusing to leave, offering to do nice things for him/her, freely offering his/her opinion about A's wardrobe, home, dating habits, diet and general lifestyle, rearranging things A didn't want rearranged and messing up things A didn't want messed up--in short, turning A's orderly life upside down.

Meanwhile, a hangdog C tries desperately to court B into forgiving him/her, but is it too late? Can insufferable but charming and kind-hearted B win A's heart? Will A realize s/he's won the bet of a lifetime before it's too late?

Notes: So many people to thank! dessert_first for a fantastic prompt, mrs_laugh_track and snoopypez for feedback and cheerleading above and beyond the call of duty, and most of all inseriatim for a truly kick-ass beta. Seriously guys, she went through the entire massive thing with me on chat AND was really insightful and amazing and enthusiastic.
Pairing: Fraser/Kowalski/Vecchio
Word count: 24,553
Summary: When undercover cop Ray Kowalski bets--and loses--his partner Ray Vecchio in a high-stakes poker game, their partnership may never be the same.

Lucky in Love

ETA: I wrote a little epilogue for snoopypez. All I want to do is see more, 1400 words, PWP, Kowalski blows Vecchio in the supply closet.
