She Demanded More Than Love, More Than Passion

Half Temptress, half tyrant — Crystal combined savagery, sophistication and strange thirsts.

From the back:

Sex was nice — and very necessary, of course — but it really wasn’t the big kick, not in itself, anyway. It was the conquest that mattered to Crystal, the joyous thrill of forcing a man or woman into abject submission. Yes, that was where the pleasure lay.
Even her own husband.
It would be fun being with Tim again. Tormenting him, goading him, flouting her affairs with women in his face until he seethed with rage — yes, it would be fun to see him loving her one moment and hating her the next. It would be fun to bring her husband to his knees once again.
Where he belonged.
Where the whole damned world belonged…

The shocking story about what goes on behind the motel door

From the back:

WOMAN IN BONDAGE!
This is the revealing story about one woman who was owned body and soul by a ruthless operator. He used her innocence and beauty like commodities—to further his own ends.
She could have freed herself by talking about what went on in the dead of night on the grounds of the Florida motel—but what good would it do her? She was DAMAGED GOODS!
She knew it would take a man made of steel to make a real woman of her again. But what decent man would ever want her—with her past?

An explosive novel that probes the soul of good and evil… exposes the magnetic pull that depravity can have over a young and beautiful girl

From the back:

4 PEOPLE… AT THE END OF THEIR ROPE
LEIGH WHITMAN …She had it made. With her beauty and fortune she could compel any man or woman to indulge her strange and compulsive desires.

This is the last issue of Shock Illustrated, and the final non-Mad EC publication. It never even made it to the newsstands. Rather, a few copies (Overstreet says 100) were bound by hand and distributed at the EC office.

A suspicious gossip, a love-starved wife and a lust-crazed artist all add up to a passionate story of infidelity and adultery!

I am willing to bet this this Rudy Nappi cover was swiped from an earlier publication of a different book, but I can’t find it.

Backwater Woman

34380000514_2068bf970a_o

She Used Her Sex To Survive

From the back:

A Lusty Novel By The Author Of Riverboat Girl

The peaceable, easy-livin’ houseboat folk up along the Slough had never seen a creature the likes of that backwater woman named Feline. Soon as she sashayed her saucy prettiness into Spike Rudd’s cabin, she stirred up a torrent of greed, lust and violent jealousies. And all Miss Feline did was to wiggle a bit and display a good deal of her virginal charms. Not meaning any harm, mind you! For Feline was just an eager little gal wanting to reach straight up for a “man on top of the pile,” a man of property. How Feline got her man, and how she got the clan in a riotous uproar, with man against man and woman against woman and all of them against kitten-cunning Feline, makes for a roaringly ribald tale of lusty, earthy American primitives that you won’t soon forget.
