Borderdance by idmarryhoss Rated: PG-13 starstarstar [Reviews - 32]
Summary:

Continuation to the story of Borderland, though possible to catch as a stand-alone, too. Here, Hoss lives the love and the marriage he has chosen. A love story, but also a story of something more. A romance written by a person not romantic at all. Contains some mature passages and difficult scenes, and old age character death. PG-13 is for implications of intimate relationship, and story is recommended only for mature readers who can cope with mature writing.

Borderland by idmarryhoss Rated: PG starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 42]
Summary:

A Hoss-starred fairytale, to reward those who always wanted to see the romantic side of Hoss Cartwright written into one story. A bit of a fairy-tale, a portion of Hoss being Hoss, a part of Bonanza and - yes, some other themes combined to that framework. PG just in case - all possible implications should be very subtle.

Bring Marie by Marla Fair Rated: PG starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 9]
Summary:

Summary:  A WHB or prequel to 'Between Heaven and Earth.' Have you ever wondered what happened when Little Joe climbed Eagle's Nest as a five year old boy that could have been so traumatic it resulted, not just in a fear of falling, but in total amnesia that lasted for nearly 20 years? This is my take on what happened when Ben Cartwright was told to 'Bring Marie'.
