**PRICE OF LOVE (THE) by T. Novan
In a romantic, emotional sequel to WARRIOR SPIRIT the warrior and bard are growing just a tad bored with their immortality when a nice little change unexpectedly arrives at their doorstep - a change that makes all the difference for Gabrielle reawakening a part of her heart long dormant and worrying the warrior who recognizes the potential in it all for her bard to end up hurt. Sweet tale with a wonderfully passionate and committed treatment of our heroines. DO NOT MISS! - 24 pgs., 8/16/99

Callisto is back and absolutely chilling in this new story. Armed with deadly information about the Warrior Princess, she sets out to exact a terrible vengeance - not caring if she has to anger gods or destroy innocents to do so. Well-written and edited, this story is not explicit. - 16 pgs., 4/5/97

The warrior and bard are at it AGAIN in this latest addition to the RAISING MELOSA SERIES which has the Amazon Queen working hard to bribe her consort into not sharing a little secret she's learned about. Sexy, cute and fun. DO NOT MISS! - 6 pgs., 11/18/99
[Palm Pilot version available at XENA FAN FICTION FOR THE PALM PILOT]

Set immediately after the events in the episode DESTINY, this story rates a definite kleenex alert as it follows the emotional struggle of a broken-hearted bard trying to come to terms with the death of her warrior princess. The plot structure used is in this story is unconventional but works perfectly in bringing across a sense of loss and ultimately in reaffirming the power of love. There are no explicit scenes in this story. - 34 pgs., 4/17/97

A thoroughly charming new tale which spotlights the many talents of the Bard of Poteidaia when she's forced to go undercover to try to rescue a certain ornery Warrior Princess. Baermer has always been one of the best in the business at capturing the dynamics of the Xena/Gab relationship, adding a freshness and originality to the portrayal of these two women that make them both very endearing and very real. This tale has them experiencing every emotion from anger to humor, desperation and ultimately to the utter certainty of their love. A MUST READ that comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 41 pgs., 7/31/98

**PRINCESS BARD (THE) by Rachel2  Save Alert
A departure for Rachel2, this story is a takeoff on a popular movie - it has Gabby returning to the Amazons where she must go on an official mission as their Princess. You aren't human if parts of this don't make you double over in laughter. [See note regarding Rachel2's stories under THE DEMON in the general fan fiction reviews] - 24 pgs., 3/97

Based upon the fairy tale RAPUNZEL this latest addition to Nene's XENAVERSE FAERY TALES, chronicles the efforts of a rather frustrated Xena as she is called away from some crucial shopping plans with the bard to rescue a princess who doesn't need as much rescuing as her family seems to think ;-) Nene's very unique sense of humor will keep you grinning throughout this delightful look at a typical work day for the Warrior Princess. DO NOT MISS! - 7 pgs., 12/28/98

**PROMISE (THE) by T. Novan
The world turns upside down for the Amazon royal family as Gabrielle finds herself facing the one enemy she never thought she'd have and Mel is forced into a promise that could destroy her very soul. Heart-wrenching and suspenseful this latest installment in the RAISING MELOSA SERIES is a surprising turn in a storyline that just keeps getting better and better. DO NOT MISS! - 4 pgs., 7/12/99
[Palm Pilot version available at XENA FAN FICTION FOR THE PALM PILOT]

**PROMISE OF TOMORROW (THE) by Planet-solin
One of the fandom's finest Conqueror series continues with this sequel to Planet-solin's SURRENDER which finds the feared Empress of Greece and her Amazon bard on the field during the final days of a fierce campaign again the Roman armies of Julius Caesar. It's a battle made easier on Xena's soul by the presence of the young woman who has come to mean everything to her. Together for a year now, the two have discovered in one another a love, a passion, a sense of trust and completeness neither has ever known before. That happiness will be tested in the months to come as insecurities plague the warrior who wants nothing more than to give Gabrielle everything in the world...but knows she can't quite do that. On her end, Gabrielle will have to deal with her emerging role as Amazon Queen and consort to the Conqueror, as well as with some powerful figures from Xena's past once again targeting the beautiful Empress of Greece. All the while, immortal hands are setting in motion plans of their own for warrior and bard - one based in darkness, the other in love - and both as equally capable of destroying them. Planet-solin's treatment of the Xena/Gab relationship is a pleasure to read with a Conqueror made so much more human through her love for another and a bard whose inner strength cements this partnership. The plot itself is INCREDIBLY compelling in that it is developing as an alternate version of the "rift" we saw in the TV series. Planet-solin will further that even more in the planned sequel to this novel. Most of the outstanding supporting cast from the first three books in the series return here once again giving us secondary characters who elicit our interest and make us care about them. One of those you'll gladly stay up 'til 3am reading, this is one for the MUST READ list guys. It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! - 82 pgs., 4/28/01

**PROMISES KEPT by Missy Good
After another of her LOOOOONG absences ;-) this bard-extraordinaire returns with the sequel to LEAP OF FAITH which finds the warrior and bard getting on with their lives, making plans for both the weeks ahead...and the years they plan to spend together. For Xena this involves some final preparations for their upcoming trip to see friends and family...for the bard it means taking the first steps in turning a wish into reality. There are things about a Missy story that just seem automatic these days - solid, sensitively drawn portrayals of our two heroines, beautiful writing with rich images and lots of heartfelt exchanges, a terrific supporting cast and one of the most heart-warming depictions of the Xena/Gab relationship in fanfic. We get them all in this beauty of a tale folks...and IT gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! [See also the sequel FESTIVAL, part of the JOURNEY OF SOULMATES SERIES] - 430 pgs., 6/6/98
