<h2>Did Lydia commit suicide, and leave her husband and daughter by choice – or is something more sinister afoot?</h2><br />Meet Lydia, John, and Diana Hunter. Lydia is a loving mother and wife, who wants nothing more than the best for her family. John is her husband. He is an over-protective homicide detective who loves his wife and teenage daughter with everything he has. Their daughter, Diana, is a genius, with an IQ level far higher than most. This is a family that adores one another. A family, however, that is torn apart by tragedy. <br /><br />When Lydia is found dead at her workplace, John loses the love of his life. His heart breaks for himself and his little girl as Diana spirals out of control. The authorities rule the death a suicide, but when events don’t start to add up, the family that is left behind begins to suspect something isn’t right. <br /><br /><i>Hunted</i> is a prequel to the Diana Hunter mystery series. Find out what haunts her, drives her, sets her life’s course. Buy <i>Hunted</i> to start following Diana’s journey today! <br /><br /><h2>Interview with the Author of the Series</h2><br /><strong>Q - So, what makes the Diana Hunter series special?</strong><br /><br />A - When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create something that mirrored exactly the kind of books I like to read. My top picks are always mystery novels, especially featuring female protagonists with attitude. Diana is badass and I can’t tell you how many readers tell me she reminds them of themselves. She makes you feel you can do anything!<br /><br />The Diana Hunter books are a great mix of genres. There is nothing graphic or gratuitous in these books. Your Aunt Martha could definitely read them. But they are not “roses around the cottage door” –type mysteries. They are more hard-boiled with some romantic tension, suspense and thriller action to keep things interesting!<br /><br />Overall, the Diana Hunter series is designed to keep you turning the pages - and I've made sure there's never a dull moment.<br /><br /><strong>Q - In what order should I read the books?</strong><br /><br />A - The Diana Hunter mysteries can be read and enjoyed in any order, however, Hunted is a prequel to the other books in the series. Unlike the other books, it is not a complete mystery. It relates the events that create the backdrop to the series and fills in some of Diana’s personality and motivations. You don’t have to have read the prequel to make sense of the later books but it helps.<br /><br />I’ve made sure not to include any spoilers for those who are new to the characters and any existing fans of Diana’s adventures will still find plenty of fresh action and mystery as well as perhaps a few answers. All in all, there is something for everyone. The events in this prequel take place a few years before <i>Snatched</i>, the first book in the Diana Hunter series of mysteries. <br /><br />If you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest the following sequence:<br /><br />- Hunted (prequel)<br />- Snatched <br />- Stolen<br />- Chopped <br /><br /><strong>Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?</strong><br /><br />A - Because the Diana Hunter series is a fast, fun, thrill-ride that takes no prisoners! Our heroine is kicks butt but has a soft center. We want her to win out even when she’s making poor decisions and alienating those who can, and want, to help her. I think most women will see a little, or a lot, of themselves in Diana Hunter.<br /><br />Ultimately, readers who enjoy lightning-fast pacing with a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series.<br /><br />Thanks for reading!<br /><br />Diana Hunter Book Categories:<br /><br />- Mystery Series <br />- Crime Thrillers<br />- Cozy Mysteries<br />- Women Sleuths<br />- Hard-Boiled Mysteries<br />- International Mystery and Crime<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

*** THIS IS THE RARE & ORIGINAL PULP EDITION ***<br /><br />In Patricia Highsmith's The Price of Salt, Therese is working in a department store during the Christmas shopping season. One day, a beautiful older woman comes over to her counter and buys a doll. As the purchase is a C.O.D. order, Therese makes a mental note of the customer’s address. She is intrigued and drawn to the woman. Although young, inexperienced and shy, she writes a note to the customer, Carol, and is elated and surprised when Carol invites her to meet. <br /><br />Therese realizes she has strong feelings for Carol, but is unsure of what they represent. Carol, in the process of a bitter separation and divorce, is also quite lonely. Soon the two women begin spending a great deal of time together. Before long, they are madly and hopelessly in love. The path is not easy for them, however. Carol also has a child and a very suspicious husbanddangerous ground for the lovers. When the women leave New York and travel west together, they discover the choices they’ve made to be together will have lasting effects on both their lives.<br /><br />Considered to be the first lesbian pulp novel to break the pulp publishing industry-enforced pattern of tragic consequences for its lesbian heroines, The Price of Salt was written under the pseudonym of Claire Morgan by Patricia Highsmith – the author of Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley. <br /><br />As one reviewer wrote in 1952, “Claire Morgan is completely natural. She has a story to tell and she tells it with an almost conversational ease. Her people are neither degenerate monsters nor fragile victims of the social order. They must—and do—pay a price for thinking, feeling and loving ‘differently,’ but they are courageous and true to themselves throughout.”

One of the best snipers in the world, Evans is at peace with the man he’s become. That doesn’t mean he’s ever liked the cold-blooded killer who stares back at him from the mirror every day. The moment he meets pretty boy Thayne Wolfe, things start a slow change and redemption begins to sound possible. <br /><br />Mills Lang, the world’s most ruthless arms dealer, is little more than a serial killer in his own right.

Thayne Wolfe will die in the most painful way… along with anyone he loves. <br /><br />*Please Note* Title includes an exciting excerpt from “Flash and Bang”<br /><br />(Stay tuned for Thayne and Jarrett’s continuing adventures. “Flash and Bang” Book Two… coming soon!)<br /><br />

James Carter is a career cop who married young, became a widower young, and then his life revolved around his son and his job. Young is a recurring theme, he thinks, when he meets the considerably younger-than-him AUSA Derek Moore. For the first time in years, James finds himself subject to the whims of his heart.<br /><br />The path to love between a hotshot lawyer and a veteran cop was never going to be smooth, not in the real world. Criminals, misunderstandings and a complete lack of communication stand in their way too. Both too stubborn to budge, and utterly convinced that their feelings aren’t reciprocated, James and Derek themselves are the biggest obstacles to their own happiness.<br /><br />A murder case might be just enough to force them to get their act together.<br /><br />Previously published by Dreamspinner Press in the 2015 Daily Dose Anthology. This is a second edition with a new cover, significant expansion and revision.

I thought I would spread it out. That did not happen. I started reading Saturday night and I could not stop. I read and read and read and read and suddenly, I was on Part 16. My partner showed up coming home from work very late that night and read with me for the last two. She had no problem jumping in because of the way you have set up the books. I like that you do not have to read these lesbian romance stories in order. What a blast! Thank you Olivia!” Grace, Chicago, IL</p><br /><p>“ I read 'Just for Fun,' of course, that being the first part of the series. I thought I might have to read from one story to the next to the next to know what was going on. I was reading another lesbian romance series, and if you missed one episode, you were all messed up. Your series, 'The House of Romance,' is very different from any I have ever read. For me I could skip around and always know what was going on from one story to another. Plus, each story has a different view on life, and some kind of message. I really like that with the very naughty stuff you have in there too. Lots of that.” Rose, Montgomery, AL</p><br /><p>“All that I can ask is, when are you coming out with the next House of Romance book? Eight Olivia Hampshire, lesbian romance stories are not enough!” Judy, Puerto Vallarta, MX</p><br /><p>“I just loved all of your House of Romance pieces of work. You just take lesbian romance stories to a differnent level. Sure, I´m a lesbian, but many of these writers write like all I want to read about is stupid stuff that goes on in New York or Los Angeles and stupid people having sex for no reason. I liked your messages about life and life's challenges. You have women in your stories from all walks of life and professions. Thank you Olivia, please don't come out of your house, just write and write and write some more.” Beverly, Cedar City, UT</p><br /><ul><br /> <li>Lesbian Romance</li><br /> <li>First time Lesbian</li><br /> <li>Lesbian Fiction</li><br /> <li>Lesbian Mystery</li><br /> <li>Lesbian Comedy</li><br /></ul><br /><br /><br /><br />

<b> When a spy dials a wrong number, could it be the connection of a lifetime? </b><br />Leigh is a secret agent in peril whose life depends on reaching her agency’s emergency hotline. But when she dials the local public radio pledge drive by mistake, a spy-obsessed office temp named Amanda becomes her only hope for rescue. Amanda thinks it’s an exciting game of make-believe, until dangerous elements from Leigh’s past force her to reveal her true identity and take Amanda with her on the run. The answers lie in Stockholm, but whether Leigh should be more frightened of the Russian mobsters who want her dead, or Amanda when she realizes she’s been lied to, is anyone’s guess. One thing is certain, if they can figure out a way to work together, the seasoned agent and the savvy civilian just might make the perfect team!<br /><br /><b> Take a sneak peek at a scene from the hilarious and sexy romantic spy caper, Stockholm Syndrome! </b><br /><br /><i> Caution yielding to panic, Leigh grabbed the back of the chair, spinning it so she could get a closer look. Relief swept over her. She’d gotten there in time. “Amanda, what happened?”<br /><br />Amanda’s eyebrows twitched as she bit her lip, looking undecided how to answer. “I won’t tell you!” she declared, her voice strong. “Not even if you torture me.”<br /><br />Leigh swayed between bafflement and alarm. “I don’t understand.” Her nerve endings tingled as all at once a horrifying possibility presented itself, the only one that made sense. Betrayal. Amanda wasn’t the victim after all, but a traitor. “Is this about the Berlin Syndicate?” Leigh whispered, already dreading the answer.<br /><br />“Yes!” Amanda’s face lit up enthusiastically. “Oh, that’s a good one! Yes, exactly. The Berlin Syndicate.”<br /><br />“My god. You’re working with them, aren’t you?” Leigh let go of the chair and stumbled backward, feeling gutted. She stared as she reached for her phone, uncertain how any woman could be so calculating and cold. But far from revealing fear or anger, Amanda looked…perplexed. And slightly miffed.<br /><br />“What are you doing?” Amanda inquired, her voice shockingly calm for a woman whose evil plan had just been blown out of the water.<br /><br />“What do you think I’m doing? I’m calling it in.”<br /><br />“Calling it…But…” Amanda’s brows drew closer together, her face a study of consternation. “Aren’t you even going to try to get the information out of me first? It’s just,” she said in a strange sort of stage whisper, “there’s a whole drawer of lovely interrogation tools, right over there.” Her head simultaneously bobbed in the direction of the dresser that stood against one wall, as if providing Leigh with a useful hint.<br /><br />Approaching the dresser while still keeping watch on her prisoner, Leigh glanced inside the open center drawer. Time stood suspended as she struggled to make sense of what it contained. “This is a drawer of sex toys,” Leigh said, her tone flat. She squinted, taking a really good look at Amanda, who was nodding slowly and giving her the indulgent look <br />usually reserved for a village idiot who finally got an answer right. “A lot of them.”<br /><br />“There was a sale.”<br /><br />Perplexed, Leigh circled Amanda’s chair, stopping in her tracks as she got an unobstructed look at the back. “Do those handcuffs have pink fur on them?”<br /><br />“Well, er…”<br /><br />“They’re not even attached to the chair! If somebody tied you to the chair they sure did a crap job of it. Why are you still sitting there?”<br /><br />“You’re kind of ruining the atmosphere, here.” Amanda’s face was wrinkled, and she was clearly put-out. “I mean, it started out okay with that Berlin thing, but this isn’t exactly how it was supposed to go.”<br /><br />Leigh gaped. “How it’s supposed to go? How exactly is being tied up supposed to—oh...” The truth struck her between the eyes. I’m such an idiot. “This is some sort of a role play thing, isn’t it?” </i><br /><br />
