"The Death of Queen Amazonia"
Being a man in the Queendom of Maadre is tough, especially with the founding Queen, Amazonia.
When Smeraldo is called to the Queen's bed, he doesn't expect the cruelty awaiting him. Only a foreign merchant can help him to recover from the shock.
But Amazonia, who is almost two-hundred years old, is relentless.
"The young king"
A mighty warrior kills his own general to save the gorgeous young king, and then struggles to keep control over his emotions.
"The Lords of War"
Foreign men, foreign culture; the continued destruction of Akkora. Not a love story.
The southern kingdoms are no more, but the Assassins' Guild is still there – honorable men who would never hurt women or children. Saif has been living as a woodcutter for fifteen years, but on his deathbed he calls for his former apprentice, Kilig. Saif's legacy – his son Hakeem – will avenge him, and possibly mend Kilig's broken heart.
"Allan de Sayek"
A forbidden love. A marriage of interest. A second chance.
An endless love only death can end.
About the Author
Barbara G.Tarn had an intense life in the Middle Ages that stuck to her through the centuries. She prefers swords to guns, long gowns to mini-skirts, and even though she buried the warrior woman, she deplores the death of knights in shining chainmail. She likes to think her condo apartment is a medieval castle, unfortunately lacking a dungeon to throw noisy neighbors and naughty colleagues in. Also known as the Lady with the Unicorns, these days she prefers to add a touch of fantasy to all her stories, past and present – when she’s not wandering on her fantasy world of Silvery Earth or in her Star Minds futuristic universe. She dabbles into historical fantasy with her Vampires Through the Centuries series and is attempting some real sci-fi with post-apocalypse and future Earth stories.
She’s a writer, sometimes artist, mostly a world-creator and story-teller. Two of her stories received an Honorable Mention at the Writers of the Future contest.
