Summary: Kal Starr has a sudden and unexpected visitor--secrets are brought to light and much is untangled.
Notes: Written for the Unconventional Courtship challenge, and based on the summary for the Harlequin romance An Innocent Courtesan. "Cicisbeo" was an actual term of the time for a male "gallant and lover" of a married woman...I have manufactured a cheerfully pansexual Regency for the purposes of this story.

Bruce threw himself into smashing the Cobblepot ring with renewed vigor, working late into the night, training until Alfred found him collapsed on the floor, exhausted, and had to help him to bed. )

Across the way, Steve Lombard was dancing with Oliver Queen and Lady Dinah Lance in turns, and it was anyone's bet which of the two--or both together--would be accompanying him upstairs later. Catherine Grant was sitting on a loveseat with a politician's head in her lap, listening raptly to his discussion of the hardships of his work as he twined a lock of her golden hair around his finger. Lois Lane was everywhere at once--pouring drinks, playing the pianoforte, getting into spirited arguments about women's rights with delighted pinks of the <i>ton.</i> )
