March Hastings

March Hastings

“March Hastings” 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 the author of more than 130 novels, across many genres. She is undoubtedly best-known for her string of ground-breaking, lesbian-themed, sexy pulp paperbacks in the 1950s and early 1960s, including The Outcasts, Three Woman, and By Flesh Alone. 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, diluting and confusing her early legacy as an influential author of lesbian pulp and straight erotic fiction.

CIRCLE OF SIN

CIRCLE OF SIN

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.
