FORCED GIGOLOS by Roe Richmond

Amazon

Men forced into being love slaves to sex-hungry women sounds like a male fantasy…but for Duke Morey, it was a living hell.

An ex-soldier’s search for his missing lover leads him to a house where men are forced into the sex trade as gigolos for desperate women, including a Detroit widow with uncontrollable desire, a suburban housewife avenging her faithless husband by acting out her rage in bed, a runaway from a boarding school, an artist who likes to do more than just paint nude men, and a psychologically-unhinged Latina who gets off on violence.

This 1960 pulp classic is back in print for the first time in 60 years…and decades as a hard-to-find, paperback rarity.

CIRCLE OF SIN by March Hastings

Amazon

To Sarine, sex was weapon, to be used whenever she wanted. 

Cabaret singer Sarine Duvall’s style and voice are sultry, sexy and magnetic…and it drives reasonable men wild with lust. That is Sarine’s power, and she knows how to wield it, using it to move to bigger and better New York clubs, and more attractive, possessive, and deadly men. No one wants her more than Paul, a married musician whose wife isn’t about to let him out of her matrimonial grip, and is willing to fight tooth and claw, lips and breasts, to keep him.  

A raw, sensual, classic of pulp fiction noir, back in print for the first time in over 60 years.

SAVAGE SURRENDER by March Hastings

Amazon

The story of a man and two women, each caught in a web of total passion . . . each forced to make a savage surrender.

Eve had everything a man could ask for . . . and a man didn’t have to ask twice. Brad, her husband, learned about this side of Eve the hard way.

Robin was different. When she lifted her arms for Chuck and whispered, “Be gentle, darling,” he knew she had not given herself often. He sensed in her body a trusting innocence that made him rein in his passions until her’s grew to a peak of savage surrender.

A pulp fiction classic, back in print for the first time in over sixty years.

“March Hastings,” at least initially, was one of the pseudonyms (along with Laura Duchamp, Viveca Ives, and Alden Stowe) of Sally M. Singer, a lesbian writer born in 1930s and reputedly the author of more than 130 novels, across many genres, in her lifetime. She is undoubtedly best-known for her string of ground-breaking, lesbian-themed, sexy pulp paperbacks in the 1950s and early 1960s, including Three Women, The Third Theme, Veil of Torment, and The Demands of the Flesh. She wrote many other sexy novels as Hastings, not all of them with a lesbian theme. However, by the late-60s/early 70s, the “March Hastings” pseudonym was co-opted by her publisher and became a house name for many different authors penning lurid paperbacks.
