The Story Of A Boy Who Learned About Life From Women…

Find Aileen and save a boy’s soul, perhaps his life. Herb loved her. She was the only one of the many girls he knew who really stirred his deepest emotions. Because he loved her, because he knew he was unworthy, he ran away from her, and lived to regret it every hour, every waking minute. Being without her was torment. Being with other girls was a mockery. Only finding Aileen again could save him, but when he did, he found that it was too late!

The Shocking Story of What Goes On Behind The Locked Doors Of A Motel

Behind the scenes of a motel, typical of thousands on America’s highways. Behind the locked doors, behind the drawn curtains, behind the secret souls of a cross-section of humanity: married and single, young and old, virgins and nymphomaniacs, lovers and lesbians, drunks and diseased, the pure and the passionate…
With his usual skill, Alan Marshall takes a scalpel and lays bare the secret lives of his characters: their hungers, their desires, their hopes and dreams — all woven into the story of the virginal Angela, who wants the lush fruit of her ripening body to be plucked…
