The electrifying love affair of a Malayan planter and a Hollywood actress — bold, passionate, uninhibited

From the back:

He ordered her out of his bedroom, but she wasn’t ready to go. Drunkenly she turned toward him and began to sway sinuously. The next thing she felt was his fist across her face — and then his arms pulling her to his body.

Eager for front-page publicity, Roxy Powell accepted a movie deal in a ravaged land ruled by a man she swore to hate. But in the heat of the jungle she came to him — and acknowledged the urgency of her desire.

Written by Robert Wade and Bill Miller, this book was originally published under the name Dale Wilmer. This printing appears under Wade & Miller’s more usual pseudonym of Wade Miller

Twilight Girls

Gold Star IL7-73 1965

They paid a terrible price for their kind of love

From the back:

Nikki Carr always prided herself on being “well adjusted” to her lesbianism. Not for her was the man’s shirt and tie. She was as feminine as any girl had a right to be. And as one of the top television producers, she made it a rule never to mix business with pleasure — until Melissa Comstock came into her life. Sweet and innocent, Melissa worked in Nikki’s office and, to her, Nikki was every-thing a successful careerwoman should be. It was an easy step from adoration to love … And for Nikki it was the first step on the road to degradation and shame.
