These novels from the 1940's were surely aimed at stirring the libido of the reader with brazen titles and covers dripping with innuendo. Scanning through the books, they seem pretty tame, at least compared to something like Cocoa Blades.
"It was even rumored that she believed in free love."
She "married the one man they said she could never have."
"Having once had her wings singed, dreads the flame." Based on that cover, I don't think the first thing to reach the flame would be her wings.
"She had able assistants in her efforts to distract Robert's thoughts from Higher Things." I think he's looking at her "able assistants" on the cover.
"Renegade whites, who were trying to lay rapacious hands".
Okay, that sounds more scandalous than it really is. I think that line and the cover and binding tricked the buyer into thinking this book was something more than a boring fictionalized history lesson.
"...the ending will leave you richly satisfied." 'Nuff said!
