I won't bore you by telling you yet again how much I love this series, but I did want to say that this little bit of dialogue is wonderful:
He closed his eyes content to just be for the moment.
"Are we losing you?"
"Mmm, no, I'm awake," Illya said, not moving. "I'm listening."

I love this series . . . the way you've written the relationship between Napoleon and Illya is very romantic without being sappy. I wish that there was a way to diffentiate the order of the stories in the series; I felt a little confused at times. That was my only complaint. Other than that the story idea was great (I think a chef would've been more plausible for Illya than a dress designer - it's like the writers were making a weak attempt at slash, but weren't that good) and your original characters were wonderful. I want to go into a restaurant and find a Rocky serenading his Matt, the staff and everyone else with ABBA.
Sorry this has turned into War and Peace. All I really wanted to say was how much I enjoyed this series and hope that there will be more! Maybe Jackson can become a haven for retired agents and the newest citizens could be April and Mark. I'm sure they could attract enough trouble to keep the senior agents busy.

I enjoyed your entire series with Illya as an accomplished chef, and Napoleon joining him in domestic bliss. Nice to see such a happy ending for the fellows. I liked that they could be open and loving, but still retained their masculinity. They seemed true to the characters of the series, if a little wiser due to age and experience. Very Nice.
