A Searing Story Of A Lonely Wife On The Prowl — Told Frankly And Unblushingly!

From the back:

They Were Married — But Not To Each Other
The Fords, the Saxons and the Ramseys were neighbors—just good friends. But young Beth Ford was lonely and neglected… Pretty Grace Saxon was sick of a husband who wouldn’t give her what she needed… Millicent Ramsey, buxom and blue-eyed, had been waiting—and wanting—for seven frustrating ears… Inevitably, each saw the other’s man as more attractive than her own. So pretty soon the Fords, the Saxons and the Ramseys became more—a lot more—than just good friends. Then came the final shuffle that had them sharing practically everything!

Dr. Randolph’s Women

Intimate Novel #21 1952

Where They Patients — Or Playmates?
Where the physician stopped, the man began…!

From the back:

She was a broad-minded wife…
A physician’s wife has to overlook certain things. But Dr. Clinton Randolph took Marcia too seriously when she said he could go out with his lady patients. He actually tried it, and on the night of their third anniversary. It turned out to be a big evening for them both. Clint found himself a victim of the old army game. Marcia wound up with the Navy–in her bathtub! And when Clint returned from his escapade, he found Marcia sobering up a perfect stranger, with kisses. Which caused Clint to turn around and walk right out again. Just at this juncture, who should appear but Marcia’s old lover, Parker Browne. He hadn’t changed a bit …
Here is a cutting analysis of modern liberalism in marriage, a deft and exciting novel of fair play which gets out of hand. It’s moral? Never mistake tolerance for indifference?
