He was a man on fire…who took what he wanted when he wanted it.

Guy Hill is pure evil, a washed-up movie star who returns to his hometown, seduces & marries the owner of the furniture company that is the life blood of the entire community, and then he murders her. He takes over the business and becomes the local King, holding everyone in the thrall and terror of his lusting drive for sex and power. His only adversary is his one-armed brother, the local Sheriff, who is powerless to stop him…until the car belonging to Guy’s “missing” wife is pulled from the cold depths of a local resevoir. Now Guy’s grip on power begins to erode, exposing the dark passions, deep corruption, and the lusting drives of everyone in the town.

“A modern-day western crime story about a guy who “runs the town” through fear and intimidation (and because he owns the biggest employer) who is pitted against his one-armed brother, who is the Sheriff. It could easily have been set in the 1800s in the old west. It’s a fast, fun, pulpy pleasure.” Lee Goldberg, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Deals with fairly ordinary people in a small, Idaho town. There are glints of Demaris’ narrative power plus copious doses of sex.” New York Times

“Brutal and sexy.” The Ottawa Citizen

KISS OR KILL by John Burton Thompson

Amazon Kobo Barnes & Noble

A scandalous, erotic crime classic originally published in 1962.

This is harrowing, seductive, and suspenseful a coming-of-age novel about Jack McKnght, a young man terrorized by his evil mother and beaten by his cruel half-brothers from her previous relationship. His mother and step-brothers are furious that Jack’s late father willed half of his estate to him, his only biological heir. Their bitterness towards Jack becomes so extreme, that he begins to suspect that they are plotting to murder him…

“There are scenes of shocking violence…but it’s not an action novel. There are hot scenes of seduction…,but it never felt like a graphic sleaze novel. There are a few genuinely romantic storylines… but it’s certainly not a romance novel. It’s really [about] a compelling character overcoming a difficult upbringing and becoming a man. The violence escalates throughout the novel building to a bloodbath of a climax.” The Paperback Warrior


Louisiana native and WW2 veteran John Burton Thompson (1911-1994) authored and sold around 75 books under his own named, and many others under pseudonyms.

TORMENTED by Carolyn Weston

Tormented by Carolyn Weston


A searing novel of erotic obsession that was a scandalous sensation when it was released in 1956… becoming a rarity that has been desperately pursued by collectors for the last sixty years.

This is the story of five people… of Elizabeth Carnes, driven by a desperate, aching passion to a mysterious lover who is the only one who can give her the physical release her devoted husband can’t provide… of George Carnes, spurned by his wife and forced to seek solace in the womanly warmth of his secretary, the deceptively placid Stella Sander, who hides a voracious sexual appetite…of Jon Steen, the complex, dangerous, bisexual artist who unlocks Elizabeth’s lust… and of Tracy Steen, Jon’s controlling wife, whose neurotic, all-consuming need for love and devotion will lead to a shattering end for them all.

This is the first, published book by Carolyn Weston, the author of the crime novels that became the hit TV series THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO.
