Xena: Warrior Princess Revival by Brager Vicario [Classic/Alt/Complete]

A little over twenty five years after Xenas death in Japan Gabrielle finds her faith in herself and others in doubt. To restore this she is dispatched on a mission to test and restore her faith. Poetic license has been taken with time lines both from the series and history.

Announcement from Stein Willard:

My fourth book in the Regency series, The Reserved Doctor, is available on Amazon. Read an extract of the book.


What could you do when your own family betrayed you and strangers had to intervene? Finding herself abandoned by her kin, Catherine Poole was left to depend on the kindness of a stranger; one who stirred unusual emotions and thoughts in her. Handsome, honourable and compassionate, her benefactor possessed everything she wanted in a partner. Expect, he was not a woman!

Doctor Marlin West was many things, but impulsive. Yet, a strange turn of events brought her to the startling conclusion that she didn’t know herself as well as she had thought. To her confusion, feelings she expected never to experience again, began to surface the moment she laid eyes on a petite, shy woman with more emotional misfortune than Marlin herself.
