The Beach and Other Short Stories is a collection of lesbian romance and erotic short stories that will get your heart and pulse racing. When Mia and Lauren stumble across each other in 'The Beach', neither are prepared for what lies ahead. That frisson of excitement which starts the beginning of any relationship leads to much, much more, and they very quickly fall in love. 'The Pool Table' and 'The Writer' have a distinctively dark edge to them, too, and are perfect for readers who enjoy lesbian erotic fiction with a refreshing difference. With unconventional characters and irresistible storylines, there is plenty of heat and romance to indulge those with a penchant for this genre. 'The Wasted Years' is the heart-warming tale of how two women's love for each other stands the test of time, and will keep you captivated from the very start. And there are plenty more to discover too... Join a whole cast of colourful, gorgeous and fascinating characters - from writers and gardeners to nightclub owners and female bouncers - on their page-turning, steamy and exciting adventures of lust, love and romance. Discover the connection between women who have loved and lost, those who have reignited that spark after taking wrong paths, and spending years apart, and find out what happens when they have been deceived and cheated on. If you love lesbian romance/erotic fiction and happy endings, you really won't be able to resist this tantalising collection.

Gertrude Stein called it “the only really modern novel form that has come into existence,” yet the mystery genre was a century old before it featured its first gay main character in a novel. Since then, gay and lesbian detective fiction has been one of the fastest growing segments of the genre. It incorporates gay and lesbian cultural elements and offers crossover appeal. Its authors call upon a century of development in the mystery genre, while providing new, more accurate images of lesbians and gay men than generally found in mainstream literature and popular media. This groundbreaking study of gay and lesbian detective fiction examines mystery series and historically significant stand-alone novels published since the early 1960s. Part I is an overview that describes how these novels make gay and lesbian life visible and forge new, powerful images. It also examines how they fit into the larger history of mystery fiction. The series analyses in Part II are grouped according to the type of main character (police officer, private investigator, amateur sleuth, etc.). Each section discusses main and secondary characters of that type, characteristic themes for the group, and more. The analyses of individual series cover main characters, themes, plot points and other elements. Comments from authors interviewed for this book play a central role in those analyses. Part III lists series-spanning themes (e.g., homophobia, the closet, gay marriage) and the novels and series that address each of those themes.

Beginning in 1869, when the study of homosexuality can be said to have begun with the establishment of sexology, this Encyclopedia offers accounts of the most important international developments in an area that now occupies a critical place in many fields of academic endeavours. While gays and lesbians have shared many aspects of life, their histories and cultures developed in profoundly different ways. To reflect this crucial fact, the Encyclopedia has been prepared in two separate volumes assuring that both histories receive full, unbiased attention and that a broad range of human experience is covered. Written by some of the most famous names in the field, as well as new researchers this is intended as a reference for students and scholars in all areas of study, as well as the general public.

In 1924 Ernest Hemingway published a small book of eighteen vignettes, each little more than one page long, with a small press in Paris. Titled in our time , the volume was later absorbed into Hemingway’s story collection In Our Time . Those vignettes, as Milton Cohen demonstrates in Hemingway’s Laboratory , reveal a range of voices, narrative strategies, and fictional interests more wide-ranging and experimental than any other extant work of Hemingway’s. Further, they provide a vivid view of his earliest tendencies and influences, first manifestations of the style that would become his hallmark, and daring departures into narrative forms that he would forever leave behind.

Grace and Claudia own a deluxe, lesbian, hotel resort on a nude beach, 30 from Barcelona Spain. For our description purposes, we will call it, “The Hotel of Romance.” It took years years for Grace and Claudia to find their own true lesbian sexuality. It came naturally. But then they were both introduced to affluent intelligent, beautiful, world traveled lesbians from all over the planet. They decided to create an environment where lesbian could come together to find themselves, find life and find love. The House of Romance is kind of like a way upscale, “Love Boat.” You never know who might show up on any given day. You never know what joy, or what baggage they may have. But, whatever day it is, it is an exciting day. “Olivia Hampshire, you just came out of the blue with your lesbian romance stories and tell you what girl, you just keep on coming. I loved your book Cop Licked, and I love your Lesbian Billionaire series with Debbie Brown too. I am glad I found this House of Romance series because me and my partner love to read this kind of stuff. Thank You, Great Stuff.” Teresa, Helena, MT “What a story. When I started reading this I never would have thought this was where it would go. The House of Romance is way more than a house of romance. Yes, I knew it would be a lesbian romance story but Wow! So many places like this run by men, for men, but this lesbian romance in this house of romance is by women, for women. That is a bit of a twist and I like it.” Glenda, Oklahoma City, OK “I want to go to Barcelona right now after reading this lesbian romance short story. Yes, I do! Thank you Olivia Hampshire. Somehow I read 2 of your other House of Romance books before I found this one. I had no problem following anything that was going on in the other ones. I is like you can read them in any order that you want, and I did. But Olivia, is was very nice to read about how all of this hot, steamy, lesbian romance got started. Thank you very much.” Constance, Salem, OR “I am not going to mention any names because I don’t want to spoil things for anybody, but that love scene at the very end was hot, hot, hot, and I didn’t think it would ever go that way in the beginning. The House of Romance has a different name once you get into the book. The real name is pretty hot. Me and my partner would love to go to this place. We read lesbian romance short stories to each other every night. This lesbian romance was well worth the money.” Ellen, Little Rock, AR
