When I was young, like 14 or so, Xena was one of my favorite TV show. And I love Sierra’s topic for this weekend!
Sierra Brave is a multi-published author of smoking hot romance. She writes across genres, dabbling in a little bit of everything, including ménage and spanking. Her love of erotic fiction started in her last year of high school when she first read the sensual classic, Fanny Hill. She felt so naughty yet liberated with her copy tucked away in her book bag and hopes her work will have the same delicious effect on her readers.

This week’s theme is all about the weekend. I’m supposed to recommend a book or movie for you to read or a place to visit the next time you have two days off. Since there’s a pandemic going on, I don’t do much going out these days, but as for movies and reading, I thought I’d offer some options for both while I tie into one of my favorite subjects: Amazons.
Even when I was young, I loved the idea of fierce women holding their own against male warriors. I read stories about the ancient myths to get my fix. As an adult, I learned the Amazon legends were based on real women, Scythian nomads who were respected as much as their male counterparts. These gals were so formidable some scholars with fragile egos tried to mansplain them out of existence, insisting they were only a myth, but archeological evidence proves otherwise. These fabulous warrior women rode horses like champs, were excellent archers, and while some of them might have preferred women, they weren’t man-hating lesbians. They were independent females, and the Greeks were so intimidated, they spread ridiculous rumors about them even creating a moniker that suggested they cut off their breasts.
With everyone sheltering at home, lots of people are looking for movies and TV shows to watch. Below I’ll list my top five Amazon or warrior women themed options and include links for information or when possible the entire show:
1 – One of my favorite episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess, Hooves and Harlots
2 – Red Sonja – dated and a bit cheesy by today’s standards, this film paved the way for women warriors in entertainment
3 – Legend of the Amazon Warrior Women – a very interesting documentary
4 – Wonder Woman – You can’t talk Amazon’s without Diana, and I liked the 2017 movie.
5 – Kill Bill – Not technically and Amazon, but The Bride is a modern-day warrior woman in this tale of revenge (not for the faint of heart)
Sierra brings with her one of her stories that goes perfectly with her post. The story is Fevered Dream by Sierra Brave, and it re-released in April in the Erotica, Historical genre. And here’s what she tells us about it.
Years ago when one of the publishers I wrote for asked for capture-romance stories for an anthology, I didn’t want to write the typical yarn of a powerful, alpha male snatching a young woman to claim. However, the idea of the strong, sexy alpha-male being taken intrigued me. I thought about what type of women would snare a man, and Scythian Horsewomen (the real “Amazons”) were an obvious choice. I wrote Fevered Dream with those women in mind. Like their legendary counterparts, my warrior women smoke weed, drink fermented beverages, and enjoy sex, and they aren’t afraid to fight men when necessary.
Satisfied but unenthusiastic with his role as a wealthy villa owner, D’Jwan embarks on a journey to the temple of his grandmother’s goddess. He performs a ritual to enter the dreamscape, hoping for a glimpse of destiny, but what he finds is far more exciting and dangerous.
Commander Xia and her warriors–fierce, hard-riding horsewomen of the Steppe–are in need of release and distraction when they happen upon a sexy man in a vulnerable position, and they want far more from him than his earthly goods. Forget lovely slave girls captured by the Roman Infantry or the village ingénue carried away by the barbarian hordes. Saddle up for the story of real Amazons unafraid of taking the pleasure they desire and deserve.
Warning: Fevered Dream is intended for adults only. If you are offended by graphic, descriptive, sexual language, you might want to find another book.
