Love Doctor (1959)

Stanley Library SL-70 1959

His Man Starved Female Patients Wouldn’t Let Him be True to His Torrid Wife!

From the back:

Their marriage—the young, handsome doctor and the beautiful blonde—got started wrong.
Clyde’s gentle, Dresden-doll approach to Norma was out of character—but he couldn’t help himself… couldn’t help the mental block that rooted in his childhood.
Reacting to her aloofness, he acquired a mistress while on his honeymoon—and went back to his inveterate girl chasing… till
Norma caught him cold, and walked out—going back to her first boy-friend, a live-wire public relations executive who had taught her the passion and violence of love.
This is life—raw, harsh, ruthless—the way people like Clyde and Norma make it for themselves! A NOVEL THAT DISSECTS THE SHAM OF ATOMIC-AGE LOVE!

Torment

Uni-Book #13 1951

Kurt Loved This Woman — Did He Love Her Brother More?

From the back:

TO ACCEPT FORBIDDEN ECSTASY OR UTTERLY DENY IT…
THIS was the poignant question torturing Kurt Gray in his pursuit of that happiness which only love can give! For it seemed to Kurt that he was “different”—that he could not derive, as others did, any warm reward from association with the opposite sex. He detected in himself, though he fought it, an irresistible preference for the company of men!
Yielding to temptation and the smooth blandishments of a college classmate, Kurt found himself gradually sinking into a morass of impropriety. Fleeing his home, he settled in Greenwich Village, travelled in France, returned to New York’s musical comedy stage where he achieved success as a composer—but always now with a companion at his side, another of Kurt’s kind, another twisted member of this strange, secret fraternity. Yet, was he really one of them? Or could he still be rescued, restored to normal ways? Chloe, the girl who loved him despite everything, believed that if only she could make him desire her, this would cure him. Deliberately she set out to entice him from abnormality. The story of her sacrifice and what it proved to Kurt makes a superb novel—and one of the most distinguished treatments of a delicate subject to have appeared in recent years!
