There's a killer on the loose. Fairhaven's on lockdown, its citizens fearful for their lives. The local guards are corrupt. And, Bodhi's been accused of murder...

My Fair Maiden by Del Robertson

What's a hero to do?

Bodhi arrives at a so small, it's barely on the map village with only three things in mind: getting out of the heat, having a decent meal, and a better drink. She's managed one of the three at the local tavern before she's approached by a gorgeous maiden. That, in itself isn't so unusual. Women are attracted to her on a regular basis.

What's odd is the behavior of the locals. Everyone is acting strangely, including the beautiful Gwen. It doesn't take Bodhi long to figure out something is terribly wrong in this seemingly peaceful, isolated village. The question is...what?

She's a hero, a woman with a sword, and she knows how to use it. But, what's a hero to do when no one will admit there's anything amiss, much less ask for help, not even the maiden in distress...

What's a virgin to do?

Gwendolyn is a proper, chaste maiden living in a small, remote village. Hers is a simple life, filled with back-breaking, mind-numbing chores. That is, until an ogre appears, demanding a virgin offering by the next full moon. It's her bad luck that she's just the tender, young morsel the villagers are willing to serve up on a platter.

She tries everything she can to escape her fate, but finds herself out of options and out of time, doomed to be an offering for an ogre. Then, along comes a stranger. She's tall, she's blonde, and she's a professional swordswoman. She's also stunning enough to make many a maiden swoon. Problem is, she's not at all the hero Gwendolyn imagined. She's cocky, brazen, and rude. She's also Gwen's last, best hope.

Three Adjectives Or Less by Kate Putnam

"Internet dating?" Jo asked, voice shaking with barely contained laughter. "Really?"

"Don't judge me," Remy whined, dropping her forehead down on the table. "I can feel you judging me."

"Hey, the only judgment I see is coming from the person sitting in the booth. There's nothing wrong with internet dating. Lots of people do it."

"Yeah?" Remy cracked a skeptical eye in Jo's direction. "Like who?" When Jo was silent for a beat too long, she nodded and stuffed her eyes back into the bend of her elbow. "As I thought." She sighed, pulling a disgruntled face that no one could see. "Whatever happened to romance, Jo? People write books about it all the time. No one ever writes books about stuff like this."

Jo chuckled. "People write books about what they want to happen, hon. Not about what actually happens."

Remy laughed at that, sitting up again. "Very true. No one ever wrote a book about my life. An ad in the Village Voice, maybe. 'Depressed dyke seeks girlfriend. Must be more gay than previous girlfriend. Ability to put up with obsessive compulsive behaviors a plus. Serious inquiries only. Yogis need not apply.'"
