He Traded His Lovely Wife, His Career And The American Dream For A Teen-Age Girl

Cover reused from Girl In A Cage

From the back:

It Was Worth Everything To Him!

Charlie Preil had almost everything. A fine house in a quiet suburb. A beautiful wife. A career that could carry him to the top. All that a man could want — except a deep, passionate fulfillment. And when he found it, he was willing to risk everything else to achieve it.
So Charlie plunged into an affair with Judi — a ripe and seductive teen-ager. Together they set out to explore the torrid world of wanton sex, wild sex; the world of perverse love where the good die young — but in the grip of ecstasy.
They made strange friends in that dubious bohemian underworld. They sampled all of its “kicks” and its crazes. Too late, Charlie realized he was caught in a silken trap. And there was no way out — or was there?
MUST AN OLDER MAN SETTLE FOR HUMDRUM LOVE? IS THERE NO PLACE IN LIFE FOR ADVENTURE WITH A YOUNG, BEAUTIFUL GIRL? THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS AROUND WHICH THIS BOLD AND PENETRATING NOVEL IS WRITTEN!

Jane joins the crew of a floating brothel-offering her charms to men of all nations-in a desperate attempt to foil a Red Chinese plot to rule the world!

It looks like someone stole Maguire artwork for this cover. From the back:

A houseboat fitted out as a house of prostitution, staffed by desirable girls of every shape, size and color…
The widow of the deposed dictator of the South American nation of San Posterior…
A pair of Chinese gamblers who know more tricks than how to cheat at fan tan …
The most dangerous weapon the world has ever known, capable of leveling an entire city in seconds…
WHAT COULD IT ALL ADD UP TO? Another dastardly plot by S.T.R.O.K.E., that’s what!
And who has to rush into the breach and save the free world from a Red Chinese takeover? Jane Blond—the secret agent from B.U.S.T., armed only with her electric panties and her incurable yen for men—that’s who!
