Never Such Innocence Again
by Chickwriter reviews
June 1918. "All alone, with plenty of money, and a house in Eaton Square? I can't imagine anything better." It came too soon for her, and now Lady Mary Carlisle feels nothing. Definitely AU and positively M/M.

What Are You Thinking About? reviews
"She's always cold now. Works with pale hands, trembling fingers that earn her an "Are you alright?" almost daily. Doesn't know whether it's to do with an especially cool early November, or the other thing." Post 4.3 AU. (Trying to practice writing again, so the chapters may shift in style as the story progresses).
