"With "Her Xena", I asked the question, "what if Xena had died instead of Lyceus and he had lived her life?" This intrigued me, so I simply had to write it to find out what would happen. I had a lot of fun with that story. I had to project what Xena would've been like had she died "innocent;" never having been a warlord, etc. And for me, alternate universe stuff can be a whole lot of fun." -- Bard's Quill

". . . definitely a romance. The core of the story is of star-crossed lovers, both fighting impossible barriers across dimensions, just to be together." -- Whoosh!

Higher Emotions by JC Wilder



"This takes place several months after Warrior...Priestess...Tramp. Poor Xena and Gabrielle have plenty of crosses to bear while they discover and rediscover each other. As if Priestess Leah weren't enough." -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Index

"This story will not only put a grin on your face but will likely have you speaking in a VERY strange tongue by the time you're finished :) It begins at the Temple of Hestia where that ever-so-dedicated Priestess Leah is shocked to discover that the injured young woman just brought in is none other than her friend, Gabwielle! Suffering from amnesia, the young bard can't remember who she is much less who Xena is so on Leah's advice she decides to become a Hestian vuhgin ;-) Soon enough though a slight wrinkle appears in Leah's righteous plans for the young bard when a 6 foot, blue-eyed Wawwia Pwincess shows up looking for her partner and making the new Hestian virgin think...impure thoughts . . . this is a MUST READ! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

Xena can be rather dense when it comes to non-battle "emergencies" but let it never be said that a bard "in need" gives up easily! ;-) This is guaranteed to put a big grin on your face! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" -- Lunacy

Now she has the Queen of the Amazons as a hostage in her bid to rebuild her army. Only Gabrielle's love and bardic tongue can keep Xena alive after the Amazons demand justice." -- Academy of Bards

". . . HOSTAGE . . . is a warlord/slave story with a twist. It begins with a conversation among the gods - a conversation which soon turns hostile resulting in a challenge. Before long Xena and Gabrielle's world is turned upside down as the Warrior Princess finds herself wondering what she is doing in the company of an Amazon, and Gabrielle meets for the first time the warlord who once terrified most of Greece. The ordeal to come will test them both as never before, ultimately providing the opportunity for the love between them to surface... or destroying that love forevermore. Those crazy Amazons are back of course complementing a storyline that is wonderfully clever, shocking, poignant and VERY passionate. This is B.L. at her most entertaining. NOT TO BE MISSED guys!
