: Drown in the LightSummary
: After a score of resoundingly dull society suitors, Kris Allen still longs for only one man: the dashing scoundrel who kidnapped him two years ago. Adam Lambert has a secret: he's the one Kris seeks - it is his kiss he still yearns for. Confessing to his abduction would bring disaster and scandal upon them both. But how can he convince Kris to forsake his pursuit of his dream lover when all he dreams of is holding him in his arms again?Pairings

seduced me into it)
Fun fact: my first idea for a title was “Scoundrel of My Heart”. I subsequently changed the title several times before settling on this one. I was original and stole it from a line in "Masquerade" from Phantom
I want to make it very clear that historical accuracy wasn’t a priority of mine in writing this. In fact, there is an appalling lack of the word “cravat” in this story. (I know, I know; I am absolutely shameless.) Normally, I take a very, very, very
long time to finish fic. And let me tell you, the deadline made me super nervous. Thank god the fest was extended, is all I can say. This story and I had a very rocky relationship. I loved it, I hated it, I didn't care for it at all. But it's done, and now that the stress of trying to finish it on time has been lifted from my shoulders, I have to admit that I love this stupid thing.
I used to read romance novels all the time, but it's been a while since I took the time to sit down and read one. Getting a chance to revisit that genre was definitely an adventure. So, here it is. It's not perfect, it's not historically accurate by any means, but it's mine and it's in on time. \o/ (And now I can stop feeling bad for working on other fics instead.)
