8 Second Ride Series by Roughrider728

1. 8 Second Ride by Roughrider 728

“Memories are powerful thoughts that tumble nearly uncontrollably around in one's mind. Some can be good and healing while others can be dark and destructive. Stop sometime and analyze your own memories. See what your mind is trying to tell you.”

2.  8 Seconds . . . Retribution by Roughrider 728

“There are times in ones life that events seem out of control. This is one of those times. I do not agree as to how this horse is broken, but the story shows how some people think that animals as well as humans are just objects to be treated with disregard. The main character is in too much self-absorbing pain to look outward at the pain she may be causing others. Once trust has been broken, can it be regained? Will love prove to be strong enough? Only the person inside of you can answer that.”

3.  8 Second Ride . . .  The Road to Redemption by Roughrider 728

“The circle has come all the way around and life continues unbroken. There are times when roadblocks rise up to force one to vary off course but in the end, the journey continues and life must move on.”

Allies Series by Ernie Whiting

Characters: Valerie Ryan, Jasmine Tanaka

Genre: Sci-Fi, Political

1. Allies by Ernie Whiting

"In the wake of a global biological war, the Foundation for Law and Morality has seized control of the United States government. Having sprung from other historical and crusading organizations, such as the Moral Majority and the Traditional Values Coalition, the Communist-hunters of HUAC, the witch-hunters of Salem, and the power-hungry Church of the Spanish Inquisition, the Foundation is yet another generation of fundamentalist religious organizations which aspires to impose their narrow-minded and ecclesiastical beliefs on the rest of the country through force of law and arms. And in this spirit of "preserving traditional and moral values," they are seeking to capture and execute a psychically gifted young woman whom they have branded as an enemy of the State, having charged her with sedition, murder and witchcraft.

"ALLIES" is not only a story of a modern-day witch-hunt; it is also a plausible story of how yet another theocratic government could come to power. Ultimately, it is a story of how a young Wiccan priestess defies those who would deny not only her rights as a free citizen, but all of ours as well" -- Academy of Bards

2. Outlaws and Allies by Ernie Whiting

"For the last seven years, Valerie Ryan has lived a peaceful life in the woods of Allied Territory in northern California, enjoying the freedom and purity of Nature with her partner Jasmine Tanaka and their seven-year-old daughter Sierra. Unknown to them, there is a sinister plan afoot; the Foundation for Law and Morality, the fundamentalist religious organization that now controls the United States government, is seeking to re-open the Betatron Nuclear Power station - an unstable nuclear reactor that Valerie closed down years ago through the use of black magic. The Foundation has even gone so far as to ally themselves with a Satanist - one of their own worst enemies - in an effort to bring Betatron back on line. After failing to remove her curse through his own efforts, the Satanist quickly seizes upon a new plan - to kidnap her daughter and hold her hostage. His demand is simple: "Remove your curse from Betatron, or I'll kill your little girl."" -- Academy of Bards

Watch as Ryan and Shannon fight it out with with 14 others to survive the elements and each other to become the soul survivor and take home the 1 million dollar prize. Except when Ryan is really eccentric (crazy), Shannon is an undercover agent for the network and the Production crew is out to make life as hard as possible for all the castaways this isn't gonna be your usual game." -- Wolf's Lair Review

"Castaway is an hysterical parody of the TV show "Survivor" that follows the format of the show in a series of 11 Episodes. Survivors include Ryan Stryker, a survivalist from Kentucky who is just a little bit obsessed with government conspiracies; and Shannon Muldoon, a network "plant" who is placed on the island to help ratings with her girl-next-door sex appeal. Unfortunately for the producers, Shannon is the lesbian-next-door who finds herself helplessly  drawn to the paranoiac Ryan. In addition to the weekly survivor challenges, Shannon must also battle the network bosses as they try to quash her relationship with Ryan. To make matters worse, she must also compete with Tiffany - the 'other woman' in Ryan's life." -- Cee's Fan Fiction Reviews

Clonefic Series by Phantom Bard

1. Clonefic Part 1 by Phantom Bard

Academy of Bards | Athenaeum | AusXIP | FanFiction.Net

Entry in the AusXip Clonefic Contest in 2003

"The real story of the clones after the episode, "Send In The Clones"...it wasn't like they showed on TV." -- FanFiction.Net

"The TV series, Xena Warrior Princess gave rise to a number of memorable characters. First are Xena, the Warrior Princess, and her soulmate, Gabrielle, the Amazon Queen. Perhaps the most popular variations on their characters are Janice Covington and Melinda Pappas. Beyond these four archetypal figures stand Annie and Mattie and the Clones. The episode settings imply that Annie and Mattie are contemporaries of the Clones, with all four living in modern times, but the souls of Xena and Gabrielle seem to reside with Annie and Mattie. So, what of the Clones? Who are they, really? Are they merely simulacra, or the closest things to Xena and Gabrielle in the modern world? Consulting "Bring In The Clones" for their backstory leaves some gaping holes and suggests some answers. It is from those answers that this story grows. The story demands a more plausible history for the Warrior Princess and the Bard of Potidaea. Previously, all we knew about Xena and Gabrielle came from the TV series. Their adventures were dramatized by the production company from translations of scrolls found by Covington and Pappas. Only now can the truth be told, by those individuals who can lay claim to it in the first person. Meet the real soulmates. (Revised Version 11/30/2003, original contest version, 2/27/2003)." -- Academy of Bards

2. Clonefic Part 2 by Phantom Bard

Academy of Bards | Athenaeum | FanFiction.Net

"Like much else, the TV show misrepresented the Destroyer of Nations from Gabrielle's scrolls. She was not the creation of Alti, but the product of Ares' gift to his Favorite. Had Alti succeeded in cloning the Destroyer of Nations within Xena?" -- FanFiction.Net

"The TV show, Xena Warrior Princess provided a few glimpses of the Destroyer of Nations. She was portrayed as a creation of Alti, and was, perhaps, a more extreme version of the Dark Xena, who had existed since her betrayal by Caesar and the killing of M'lila. Like much else, the TV show misrepresented those accounts of the Destroyer of Nations that actually appeared in Gabrielle's scrolls. In fact, this "alter-ego" was a product of the increasing attentions of the God of War. He gifted Xena with a superior ability to harness her battle-mania, her katalepsis, to become an unrivaled killer. After becoming Ares' Favorite, Xena allowed this full-blown aspect of herself free rein on the battlefield, making her a terrifying celebrant of war. She complimented and outlived the "Evil" Xena, and then persisted, submersed by the will of the "Good" Xena, the Warrior Princess. Still, the Destroyer of Nations peeked out of Xena's soul, making brief appearances to exercise her wrath. Perhaps the truest test of who the clones were lay in whether or not Xena still hosted the Destroyer of Nations. Had Alti succeeded and recreated this aspect of the warrior?" -- Academy of Bards

 Tom's Xena Page Editor's Choice Award

"This is an Uber-Xena Fiction. That means, no Xena, no Gabrielle. It's just about two people, whose lives collide in contemporary Miami, and how they cope with that. This is not 'in place' of my next X and G story, btw.. it's a filler while I'm waiting for more of the4th season to air. The printed version has all the names right. (g)" -- Melissa Good

". . . introduces Dar Roberts, executive VP of a big IT company, a ruthless corporate shark used to doing the company's dirty work. While acquiring a small firm, her path crosses that of Kerry Stuart, an idealistic junior manager who has finally found her way in life after struggling for independence from her family. However, the niche in life which she worked so hard to establish is about to be destroyed by Dar and her company." -- Athenaeum

". . . a story set in modern-day Miami, centering on the lives of two strangers whose destinies bring them together amidst the turmoil of a hostile corporate takeover. Wealthy, brilliant and deadly, Dar Roberts has cultivated a well-earned reputation as one of the most efficient corporate raiders in the Information Technologies business. To her bosses she is a formidable weapon to be used in the never-ending struggle for power, control and profit. To the people employed by the companies she assimilates - the executive is a predator - cold and merciless. It is a reputation she is living up to as she prepares to decimate the work force of a recent acquisition. In charge of that work force is Kerry Stuart - a smart, young manager whose life had been going well until the recent turn of events. With dogged determination, Kerry has escaped the pressures of family to make her own way in the world - establishing a career and rising quickly within a small company - only to now have to face the prospect of those efforts being for naught as a disconcertingly beautiful blue-eyed shark strolls into her office . . . gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!" -- Lunacy

Xippy Award

"Laura is a TV news director and an amateur golfer. She is transferred to Burkett Falls after hitting the news anchor in Dallas. There she meets Chris, one of Burkett Falls news reporter. Chris is a accident prone. What can happen will happen, when Chris is around. Laura tries to juggle her work and personal relationships with Chris, while trying to fulfill her goals as an amateur golfer." -- Athenaeum

"In the live-by-the-ratings, die-by-the-ratings battlefield that is modern TV news, news director Laura Kasdan is a general without peer. Relegated to a minor market after punching out the evening anchor in Dallas, she arrives in Burkett Falls ready to teach the crew there the cut-throat techniques they need to get ahead of the competition. She reckons without personable Chris Hanson, a reporter with a propensity for walking into trouble (and great stories) -- and a sexual orientation that could kill a very promising career. After a tornado literally throws them together, Laura decides that Chris has much to teach her -- if they can get past the conflicts in professional ethics AND if Laura has the courage to overcome her fears and inhibitions. An intriguing look at the worlds of broadcast journalism _and_ women's golf -- the other arena in which Laura excels and longs to succeed." -- Swollen Buds

"The best news director in the business, Laura Kasdan goes hand-in-hand with winning ratings in whatever market she's employed so when she's involved in a little...altercation, her employers decided to move her rather than lose her. After cutting a deal she can live with, Laura takes the reins of the news room at WBFC in Burkett Falls where the transition is made a lot less painful than she expected by a lively staff and one friendly little journalist in particular... Grateful for the opportunity to work with the infamous Laura Kasdan, Chris Hanson is a hardworking reporter and anchor possessed of a natural charm and an almost unreal knack for attracting trouble. Drawn into an unlikely and even puzzling friendship, Laura and Chris soon find themselves working together at every opportunity - discovering an attraction neither can quite deny despite the almost certain heartache it promises to bring . . . a well-paced storyline with equal parts action and drama all combined to make this one a MUST READ!

Laura is having a challenging time getting used to the demands of her new position and trying to balance those with her aspirations on the golf circuit. Chris is having to weigh her love of reporting against her ambitions as news anchor. Most problematic of all - the two are having to juggle their personal lives with the professional ones - falling more in love with one another with every passing day and yet becoming increasingly aware of what a fine line they're walking in a business where one misstep can destroy careers . . .

 "An adventure-drama set in modern times, this EXCEPTIONAL novel is the sequel to Sword’n’Quill's THE STRANGER IN YOUR EYES which had the ancient immortal Xena at long last reuniting with her beloved bard after Gabrielle was reincarnated in another's body. Set a short while after the end of that first story, this new episode begins with a tender, peaceful interlude as warrior and bard reacquaint themselves with one another, rediscovering the love and passion and wonder of two soulmates too long denied. Soon enough though - the outside world snakes its way back into their lives as Xena is asked to assist in an investigation of a white supremacist group suspected in a growing number of disappearances. At the same time, Gabrielle reveals the real reason Hades allowed her to return to the world of the living - to make an appeal to the immortal warrior for her help in stopping an ancient God determined to reclaim his powers by plunging the world into a renewed cycle of hatred and war. There's only one way to stop the coming Armageddon...and it demands a price even Xena may not be willing to pay... Mixing moments of nostalgia with a deeply touching love story, SIZZLING romance, suspenseful action, and the charming humor ingrained in the bard's efforts at familiarizing herself with the modern world, Sword’n’Quill's latest is a captivating tale you will not want to put down 'til the very end. Beautifully written and edited, this one is a definite MUST READ! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

Despite reprisals from within the Justice Department and criticism in the press, Cam is determined to bring those responsible to justice.

Under orders from the White House, Blair reluctantly allows a member of the “enemy camp,” investigative reporter Dana Barnett, to join her inner circle in the hopes of limiting her media exposure. Dana isn’t any happier about being pulled from her coverage of the escalating conflict in the Middle East to write a society “fluff piece,” although the presence of beautiful Dr. Emory Constantine does make the assignment a little more enticing.

With the nation under attack, the world on the verge of war, and their personal lives the focus of intense public scrutiny, Cam and Blair come under fire both publicly and privately when an old nemesis resurfaces intent on finishing his holy mission—to kill Blair Powell." -- Bold Strokes Books

Kennedy Nocona, an attorney, lends support and advice to Carson and as the investigation proceeds so does the relationship between the two women." -- Swollen Buds

"Kennedy Nocona is an out, liberal, driven attorney, living in Austin, the heart of the Texas hill country. Once a finds herself in the position of re-evaluating her life - a position brought on by a personal tragedy for which she blames herself. Seeking redemption for her tormented past, she loses herself in her work, strict discipline of mind and body, and the teachings of Native American roots she once shunned.

Dallasite Carson Garret is a young paralegal overcoming the loss of her parents and coming to terms with her own sexual orientation. After settling her parents' estate and examining her failed past relationships, she is desperately ready to move forward. Bored with her state of affairs, she longs for excitement and romance to make her feel alive again.

A chance encounter finds them inexplicably drawn to one another, and after a weekend together, they quickly find themselves in a long distance romance that leaves them both wanting more. Circumstances at Carson's job develop into a series of mysteries and blackmail attempts that leaves her with more excitement than she ever bargained for. Confused, afraid, and alone, she turns to Kennedy, the one person she knows can help her. As they work together to solve a puzzle, they confront growing feelings that neither woman can deny, complicated by outside forces that threaten to crush them both." -- Academy of Bards

A hard-working Austin attorney, determined to improve the legal profession by making it affordable to all and empowering paralegals, Kennedy Nocona plans on offering her seminar and getting together with an old friend afterwards but those plans change when the cute blonde from her seminar happens to show up at the same club later that evening.

"Reporter Liz Gardener sets out to discover the secrets of mysterious Miami druglord Jude Lucien. Her investigations prove more successful than she'd anticipated." -- Nancy Amazon Presents . . .

"Fallen DEA agent Jude Lucien, haunted by her past, meets Miami Herald journalist Elizabeth Gardener whose only objective is to expose to the world the powerful woman's dark secrets. A painful event however brings them closer than Liz banked on, and soon she learns enough about Jude to discover she's "more and less" than what she seemed before." -- Arkansas Lesbians

". . . set in the glamorous and often deadly underworld of Miami - a world in which wealth, and seductive pleasures exist side by side with violence and death. It is into this very world reporter Liz Gardener finds herself stepping into as she pursues a story that has obsessed her for years now - the sordid tale surrounding a dark and beautiful and dangerous ex-DEA agent by the name of Jude Lucien who having gone over to the other side is now one of the most powerful and feared druglords in the business. With two very different agendas, the two women will find themselves drawn to one another - sensing something very real in the other - sensing perhaps that neither is quite what she seems . . . FASCINATING tale destined to become one of the all-time classics in Xena fanfic. It receives my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

"An ex-DEA agent now drug dealer becomes the object of investigation by a newspaper reporter. Convinced that there is more to Jude Lucien than a reputation as 'The Angel of Death', Liz Gardener enters her world posing as a sexy young woman looking for a good time at a trendy nightclub owned by Jude. Drawn by the young woman's confidence and sexy allure, Jude invites Liz to her beach home, where the young woman is accidentally shot. While recovering in Jude's home the two begin an uncertain dance of love that is fraught with trials including a jealous assistant's machinations, revenge for the death of a compatriot, and the return of a drug cartel." -- Swollen Buds

Tras lo que parece un encuentro casual que pone en contacto a Jude con la reportera Liz Gardener, la sombría ex-agente se encuentra al mismo tiempo intrigada y muy atraída por la joven. Liz es alcanzada por el disparo de un francotirador que iba dirigido a Jude, y las dos mujeres se ven lanzadas a una carrera para descubrir quién intenta matarla. Mientras sus vidas se van entrelazando cada vez más, Jude se descubre enamorándose de la reportera, y Liz descubre que la agente convertida en traficante de drogas, es a la vez mucho menos y mucho más de lo que parece." -- Versión Original

2. Past the Point by Sharon Bowers

"Angel Mine" - Shorter Version

Unfinished - Last updated January 28, 2000

". . . The story opens with a playful moment of relaxation as the two enjoy a day off testing their baseball skills with friends. It's a deceptively peaceful time which gives little indication of the life and death struggle the two women recently went through or the emotional challenges they've been facing since. Those challenges, however, remain very much in the thoughts of both women as they strive to overcome old demons and lingering fears in hopes of continuing to build the shared future they so desperately want. It's a future they're gonna have to fight for because Jude Lucien has made many enemies, including one that knows her very well and may not be quite ready to let bygones be bygones . . .

Athenaeum Fan Favorite in the Categories of Drama and Romance

Swollen Bud Award: "ALL NIGHTER" / Novel- or Novella-Length

"It's the year 2020, and the future is here at last. America has its first woman president, Devlyn Marlowe. President Marlowe, a compelling woman of heart, mind and spirit wants her term in office chronicled, and she wants it done by an author whose voice has always captured her, Lauren Strayer." -- Academy of Bards

"It is November 2020, and Devlyn Marlowe is a widow with 3 kids that just happens to be the President of the United States. Lauren Strayer has just been hired to be the Presidential Biographer. She is young, blond, professional...and trouble for the dark-haired, blue-eyed Madam President." -- Athenaeum

"Devlyn Marlowe didn't get author Lauren Strayer's vote in the fall of 2020. Just a few months after agreeing to write her life story, however, the intelligence, charm, and wit of America's first woman president wins the biographer's respect and friendship -- and maybe something much more profound. Something that may require Lauren to write herself into the history she is chronicling." -- Swollen Buds

"It is the year 2020, and  Devlyn Marlowe has just been elected the first woman President of the United States.  Author Lauren Strayer is the woman she asks to document her presidency and write her biography. Madam President is an entertaining story that follows the first year of President Marlowe's term. Devlyn is a complex woman - still grieving the loss of her first wife and trying to juggle the demands of being president with the demands of being a single mother to young children. Lauren has her own obstacles to overcome as she tries to determine where she fits into Devlyn's life  while trying to maintain her professional integrity as a writer as she finds herself getting more and more involved with her subject. The story is also filled with very plausible ideas about how technology will affect our daily lives in the not so distant future." -- Cee's Fan Fiction Reviews

"It's the year 2020 and the United States has elected its first ever woman president - a very gorgeous, very intelligent, very capable and openly gay Devlyn Marlowe. Aware that she's making history but not beyond serving her own interests as well, Devlyn insists that her favorite author be hired to write her official biography. Lauren Strayer part-time biographer, part-time novelist, didn't even vote for the new president so the offer from the White House comes as a surprise. Reluctant to take on a project she'll have little control over Lauren initially turns it down only to find herself on the other end of a phone conversation with a very persuasive president guaranteeing her full control over the biography. Within days the author's life is changed forever as she finds herself residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and getting to know the charming, funny, down-to-earth and surprisingly old-fashioned woman behind the politician. Meanwhile, Devlyn is similarly charmed by her biographer. A fan of the writer at first, she quickly becomes a fan of the woman, admiring Lauren's dedication, and intelligence and discovering to her consternation, an attraction to the young author destined to complicate things JUST a tad in the old White House. In the months ahead, the two will face challenges from within and without as political and other more dangerous enemies struggle to undermine the new president, as Lauren re-examines her sexuality in light of her own attraction to the tall, dark, Commander in Chief, as the president's children from her first marriage get to know the biographer, and as Devlyn Marlowe herself starts to let go of the past to open her heart once again . . .

"In the sequel to Madam President we learn the trials and tribulations of trying to maintain a relationship, merge a family and still have time to be the leader of the free world." -- Academy of Bards

"First Lady continues the chronicle of the lives of Devlyn Marlowe, President of the United States, and Lauren Strayer, her official biographer and soon-to-be First Lady. Devlyn, a supremely dedicated public servant, struggles to find the balance between managing the nation’s interests and finding time to continue the development of her relationship with Lauren, get married, and raise her kids. Lauren is forced to deal with numerous stresses herself, including the press, her estranged father, Dev's instant family, the upcoming wedding, her responsibilities as biographer, and some persistent personal demons relating to her now deceased mother." -- Just About Write

"Eloping isn't an option, unfortunately. For one thing, as Lauren Strayer discovers, there are certain expectations when your beloved is the President of the United States. Just getting on the schedule can be difficult. Then there's the matter of the "poofy dresses" that Devlyn Marlowe's children want them to wear, the fact that Lauren's estranged father thoroughly disapproves of her future mate, the nation's first female President, AND the not-so-occasional heart-pounding, heart-rending, personal, national and international crisis." -- Swollen Buds

"Grace Wilson, a young ambitious doctor, becomes involved with ex-con and brilliant nanotech Dana Papadopolis. Together they attempt to find out who it is who wants Dana either in back in prison or dead, and why." -- Nancy Amazon Presents . . .

"This compelling . . . series set in the not-too-distant future transports the reader to the New Haven, Conn., bar where ex-con Dana Papadopolis and Dr. Grace Wilson first meet and from there to the fascinating world of "cell life, mutating DNA, and self-replicating nano machines." Both women are driven in their own ways -- the dark and distrustful "Doc" struggling with the anger produced by years of abuse and by her guilt over the horrific use to which her research in nanotechnology has been put and Grace by a hunt for a cure for cancer that borders on obsession and leads to a growing dependence on stimulants." -- Swollen Buds

Attempting to help after the dark stranger is inadvertently injured in a brawl, Grace finds herself immediately intrigued by the fidgety ex-con who at first refuses but eventually accepts her aid. Thus begins a slow dance between these two souls - one full of gentleness and determination, another hiding in a very dark place after years of barbaric abuse, desolation and disappointments. For Grace it will be an uphill battle all the way as she finds herself having to deal both with a very jealous and very dangerous ex and with a new partner whose physical strength is a stunning contradiction to the fragility lying beneath. Dana meanwhile finds herself trusting someone for the first time in her life, wanting desperately to bring the beautiful doctor and herself some measure of happiness...if only for a little while . . .

Athenaeum Perennial Favorite Award

“Trace Sheridan is a dirty cop in trouble with time running out.  How can a dead woman walking get her life back?” — Cheyne Curry

“Detective Trace Sheridan is a 21st Century corrupt cop who thinks life is about the last highest bidder and the next cheap thrill - until her luck runs out and she realizes she is fortunate to escape to a simpler time with just the clothes on her back. The worldly, wayward, not-so-nice Trace meets Rachel Young, a naive, sweet, proper yet troubled ranch woman whose challenges are more than meet the eye. Despite their differences, the two women forge an unlikely friendship as they bond and grow closer, eventually changing each other and the people around them, sharing an unlikely love whose true nature must remain hidden from everyone else. With some unexpected help along the way, they form a united front against the type of individual Trace once was and what seems like insurmountable odds of good over evil.” — Passion & Perfection

“What would you do if one minute you were in the 21st century and the next you were in the 19th? One day you’re driving a Mustang and the next day you’re riding one? Dirty cop Trace Sheridan faces this dilemma as she moves from a present day mob war to a range war over a hundred years in the past, not remembering how she got there. The year is 1879, when cattle barons, crooked lawmen, saloons, painted ladies, cowboys and Indians ruled the Wild West, and laws were only as strong as the gunman who upheld them. In Sagebrush, the town and the sheriff belong to the Cranes, who take what they want or bad things happen. Trace finds this out firsthand when she ends up on the land of Rachel Young, a struggling ranch woman who won’t give in to the merciless cattle baron and his obsessed son. For some unexplainable reason, Rachel trusts the enigmatic Trace who uses 21st century sensibilities to battle 19th century turmoil, while Trace is forced to keep the secret of her origin from the attractive and vulnerable Rachel. Renegade is a story of redemption in its purest form as Trace discovers what truly matters in life and how past really is prologue.” — The Story Lounge

The Shaken Series by K.G. MacGregor

Swollen Bud Award: "CONSTANT AROUSAL" / Series

"The lives of luxury car dealer Anna Kaklis and family attorney Lily Stuart are literally thrown together -- by an earthquake that traps them in a collapsed portion of a mall. While helping each other escape, they learn more about each other than many friends do in a lifetime. In this trio of moving and often humorous stories, MacGregor recounts the evolution of that friendship into a very special bond that sustains them through some tough times.

Though they lose track of each other after the quake, fate brings the two together a year later at the courthouse where Anna, acting on a realization she came to during the disaster, has just dissolved her unhappy marriage. Their lives are further "shaken" when they renew their acquaintance and Anna begins to question her sexual orientation. Before they begin life together as a couple, however, they will have to surmount the objections of Anna's family and friends.

Trouble comes knocking again in "Stirred" when Lily's adoptive mother dies and, unable to resolve her grief, she loses control of her drinking, causing a rift with Anna and a suspension from her job.

The women's relationship is "Strained" again in the final story, as they contemplate starting a family -- and face the challenge of integrating a very special little boy into their lives." -- Swollen Buds

"Luxury car dealer Anna Kaklis and family attorney Lily Stuart meet by fate and work together to overcome an extraordinary challenge. Can their courage also help them conquer their fears of love?" -- Academy of Bards

"Anna Kaklis Rutherford, the tall dark vice president of Premier Motors of Beverly Hills, southern California's top BMW dealer, and lawyer Lily Stuart, of Braxton Street Family Law Clinic, would probably never have met had it not been for Fate. But when a big quake hits, they happen to be in the same mall and share the harrowing experience as they are try to survive until help comes, bonding in a way that they don't quite understand, but which which may develop from a very special friendship into much more, if they can survive." -- Athenaeum

"On a day that begins like any other, a violent earthquake strikes Los Angeles, plunging the region into chaos.  Two strangers, trapped in a collapsed shopping mall, find each other amid the rubble and join forces to escape.  Hampered by injury and darkness, they claw their way through one crumbled store after another, emerging long after most have given up hope for survivors.

The ordeal leaves both women shaken, but their shared triumph sets them on a life-changing course, igniting a connection like neither has ever known.  Anna Kaklis, whose perfectly planned life never included falling in love with another woman, is thrown for a loop, but she doesn't doubt her heart.  Lily Stewart, abandoned too many times by people she trusted, won't let herself believe that Anna's love will endure." -- K.G.

"This is the story of Zina a reformed petty criminal who is now a firefighter living in Chakram Creek and Gabrielle her lover. Gabrielle's boyfriend Purdy is settled with her sister Lilla and it gets crazier after that!" -  Xippy

"This hilarious series draws upon virtually every redneck stereotype as it wreaks good-natured havoc with the uber genre. Somewhere between Mayberry and the Jerry Springer Show lives Zina, the tough-as-nails ex-con firefighter, and Gabrielle, the dreamy poet trapped by her family in a life of unending... well, if she didn't live in a white trash trailer park, she could call it ennui. Drawn to each other like bees to a sticky bottle of fruity wine cooler, this pair sets the town abuzz. They are abetted in their adventures by a host of unforgettable characters drawn from the Xenaverse, including Cyrene (Zina's pot-smoking hippie mama), Gabrielle's friends Effie and Pony (members of the Amazin' Amazons bar band), her sister Lila (who's pregnant by Gabrielle's former boyfriend Purdie) and Callie (a crazy-as-a-loon salvation sister in Ares Ministries)." -- Swollen Buds

Little does the tough-guy know that Rachel Wilson, one of the trainers, will change her life as much as she changes hers....allowing both to find what neither had ever hoped for." -- Athenaeum

"With the world of horse breeding as a background, the tale begins with Mafia henchwoman Lacey Montgomery visiting a horsetrack to look into the reason why her boss's horses are not performing well as of late. She finds much more than she bargained for in the form of a spirited little rider named Rachel Wilson who suspects foul play herself and who immediately volunteers to help. As the investigation proceeds, Lacey finds herself not only learning a lot about horse breeding and racing, but growing increasingly close to the kind-hearted young woman whose troubled past rivals her own and who soon has her yearning for a different life - a life away from the violence of the Mafia, a life with a soulmate she'd never thought she'd find. Tonya paints a thoroughly fascinating picture here of two women, each fighting demons of their own, who find in one another the strength to fight those demons and reach out for their dreams . . . VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" -- Lunacy

In retirement from a life of crime she is more than happy to have left behind, Lacey nevertheless finds herself sometimes struggling with the challenges of her new family, unaccustomed to either the day to day responsibilities or the depth of emotion her heart now seems capable of. These are challenges, however, which are soon put aside when Lacey and Rachel find themselves dealing with a much greater concern - the knowledge that someone from Lacey's dark past wants the ex-henchwoman - and to get to her they are more than willing to go through friends...and family . . . it gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

"Lacey, Rachel e Molly, filha de Rachel, tentam construir uma rotina em sua nova vida depois da saída de Lacey da "Família". Lacey monta uma firma de segurança com George, Bernard e Rico, e Rachel começa seu curso universitário. Tudo parecia ir muito bem quando sem nenhum motivo aparente, Lacey e seus amigos começam a receber ameaças escritas.

Mas eles não fazem a menor idéia quem é o responsável por esses ataques ou o motivo deles. Lacey sabe que agora tem uma família sua a zelar e faz de tudo para desvendar esta trama. Cenas tórridas entre as duas, já que Lacey sem saber verbalizar certas coisas só consegue demonstrar agindo!

Uma ótima continuação para uma ótima estória. A autora mantém o ritmo de sua estória anterior e dando uma visão bastante clara da vida das duas personagens principais. É realmente um prazer ler. Altamente recomendada!" -- FanReal

Blood will soon coat the jungle floor as two lives are inexplicably changed and to ancient souls stir in recognition . . . VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy
