**HALCYON TALES by Themis - read in the following order:
  1. A TWIST OF FATE

**HAND IN THE BUSH (A) by DJWP
It's a cold, dark night and one persistent little bard is determined to get as much warmth as possible from her warrior blanket. When nature calls, however, she has to risk a quick trip into the surrounding forest - a very gloomy, eerie forest hiding dangers the bard is about to become intimately acquainted with. This is the perfect story for a stormy night or a camp out - just make sure you've answered that call of nature BEFORE reading it 8-| Featuring DJWP's trademark combination of playful humor and sexy tenderness, this one is both scary and fun. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 8 pgs., 10/2000, re-released 6/4/01

**HANGING GARDENS (THE) by XWP Fanatic
The second episode in the SEVEN WONDERS SERIES after Fanatic's extraordinary AFTERMATH: THE THREE OF LIFE this sequel continues the story of Xena the Conqueror and her lovely consort, Gabrielle, Queen of the Amazons as they travel to exotic Babylon home of one of the wonders of the Ancient World, the majestic Hanging Gardens. There to celebrate the anniversary of King Nebuharin's reign, Conqueror and queen begin to suspect the intentions of the crafty Babylonian ruler the minute they spot a Roman flag among the ships in the harbor. Joining the other rulers also invited to the festivities they soon learn of Nebuharin's plans for the historic gathering - only there are other plans afoot as well...ones which may endanger the Conqueror, her queen and the still fragile happiness they have found together. Fanatic continues here the very solid characterizations she established in the first story as she develops the relationship between a very dangerous, very driven, very smart Conqueror who is nevertheless pitifully ignorant when it comes to affairs of the heart, and a stubborn Amazon queen with a gentle soul, a wisdom that is often beyond her years and a keen understanding of those affairs of the heart. Establishing in the first few chapters what promises to be one heck of murder mystery, this tale surrounds the Xena/Gab romance with a terrific sense of suspense and intrigue. A MUST READ that comes VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! - 279 pgs., 3/6/99

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, GABRIELLE by L.J. Maas
Part of L.J. Maas' QUEEN SERIES, this clever first time tale opens with the warrior already married to a very pregnant bard and planning a unique anniversary present for her beloved. Aware of some special herbs that can help synchronize the dreams of individuals, Xena secretly sends them both into a dreamscape where they find themselves reliving the moment years before where Xena stupidly allowed another to take her bard from her robing them both of the opportunity to share a very special first time together. It's a mistake the warrior is determined not to repeat again. This is a rather "convenient" story but also a very romantic, entertaining one that will have you feeling quite sympathetic for the Warrior Princess. [See the follow-up HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, XENA] - 23 pgs., 6/15/00

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, XENA by L.J. Maas
In a rather amusing follow-up to HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, GABRIELLE, an excited bard looks forward to returning the favor her beautiful warrior did for her recently but things don't work out quite as planned leaving a frustrated Gabrielle trapped in a dreamscape where her own situation is not quite what she hoped, there's some intimidating competition for the affections of her beloved, and perhaps most challenging of all - there's the hormones of a sixteen year old Xena to deal with ;-) L.J. combines some very funny moments here with some rather poignant ones as we catch a glimpse of pre-warlord Xena and follow Gabrielle's efforts at somehow salvaging her "anniversary plans" ;-) Very cute. - 26 pgs., 6/15/00
