    National Book Award Finalist: A man, woman, and child are bound by a desperate need—and a terrible secret—in this suspenseful, “astonishing” novel (Vogue).    Aubrey Wallace is the kind of man no one notices. Dotty Johnson is the kind of woman no one can ignore. One afternoon, they both disappear from the small Vermont town where they live. The next day, two hundred miles away, a toddler is kidnapped from her Massachusetts home.   For the next five years, Aubrey, Dotty, and the kidnapped child—united by a mix of strange love, desperate need, and the crime that brought them together—are trapped in a nomadic existence governed by their constant fear of discovery. Canny, the little girl, becomes Aubrey’s entire existence. But Dotty wants out. She is tired of being saddled with this fearful man, and when she meets a brutal ex-convict, the wheels of Canny’s return to her natural parents are wrenched fatally into motion.   A dark, riveting tale about the impulses and weaknesses that underlie an evil act, Vanished was nominated for both the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, and marked the debut of the New York Times–bestselling author of Songs in Ordinary Time and A Dangerous Woman.

    “I was shocked. How could a mother try to do something like this to her daughter just because she is a lesbian. And how could her exhusband do such a thing. Olivia, in your “House of Romance,” love story, you just had me twisting and turning in my seat.” Helen, Buffalo, NY 
    “The love scenes and the location of this “House of Romance,” series just makes my girlfriend put her hands all over me when we read this together out loud. I read all of Olivia Hamphire's, stories because they make me laugh, they make me cry, they make me horny too.” Catherine, Dayton, OH 
    “I can´t wait to see what Claudia and Grace are up to in the next “House of Romance,” book. The concept of what this house is all about is just wonderful. I wish this place was real because I would pay big money to go there, and I bet I would spend lots of money on the girls once I got there. My wife would too. In this day and age, it is hard to believe that it if so hard to find good lesbian literature. Thank you very much Olivia Hampshire.” Kaye, Santa Clara, CA

    ***WARNING: This 3,800 word erotic horror story is about one possible dystopian (depending on who you ask) future, when a female can get anything she wants, and use males however she wants. It is fiction that is NOT for the faint-hearted.*** 
    "French maid outfits have to be the sexiest clothes a woman can wear. Maybe I should say they’re the sexiest clothes anyone can wear. 
    I’ll admit, when I called for one of those maid services to come out and clean my house a while back, I imagined, or hoped, the maids would show up in those outfits. At the time, I never could have imagined that I would be the one to end up wearing the maid outfit. 
    What I thought was just playful banter turned out to be a potential sexual harrassment nightmare. Instead of calling the police, the women let me off if I would just do some things, and wear some things for their amusement. It was the most humiliating time of my life..." 
    ***WARNING: The following story contains depictions of extreme erotic horror, BDSM (Bondage, Dominance, Sadomasochism), and female domination erotica. It is only for MATURE readers, aged 18 and over. It contains sexual themes involving characters who are consenting adults, all over the age of 18.***
