Divorced single father Isaac Clarke only has two focuses in his life: his work and his daughter Viktoria. Refusing to date and throwing himself headfirst into his assignments, Isaac pretty much has tunnel vision until he meets the sweet foreign baker Blake Collins. From there, the pâtissier from London goes on to change Viktoria's and Isaac's life for the better. But that doesn't mean there won't be a few bad batches in the mix.
Tracou Vartanian, a provincial dezmek lord, travels to the capital of a foreign land to see the wares on offer at the Gathering of Merchants. Mirthal Yiva, the Prince of the Elves, travels to that same capital for a taste of freedom. Their paths collide and Tracou finds himself entangled in a distinctly Elvish mess. With Mirthal's retainer hot on his heels, Tracou helps him leave the city. A dezmek and an elf walking around the city did not go unnoticed, though, leading Tracou to be captured and dragged across the continent by Mirthal's retainer, a blue-haired elf, and Ina, an aloof human. Mirthal, on the other hand, wanders peacefully into another country, none the wiser about Tracou's predicament. Stripped of his magic by Mirthal's retainer, Tracou has no choice but to bide his time.

Six teenagers growing up together since they were all about three years old, start 10th grade, a year of learning who you are, and how to show that. The thing is, they’re all gonna realize some big things about themselves. Tye starts drifting from the group, making new friends, and the he begins to bully his old friends because he wants to fit in, even though he has a crush on one of them, aka Noah. One night at a party, Tye gets drunk, and despite having a girlfriend, which he truly had no interest for, kisses a guy, which turns into something a bit more, but what he isn’t gonna believe, is that the person he drunkenly kisses and confesses to, is the old friend, Noah. The other friends that boy drifted from, who are very confused and mad once they find out the males feelings, and the fact that they’re mutual between the two, because he basically betrayed all of them. He has to try and keep his secret from coming out, and his internalized homophobia (school is vv Christian, along with his parents, and everyone besides that group of friends is vv homophobic), doesn’t wanna let this secret out, but how will he keep it down forever? Does he end up with the male? Probably. Will they share more romantic, yet secret, meetings? Duh. Will he slowly start to realize who he is? I hope so.
