The Sins Of Allie-May 
by Albert L Quandt

Plaything Of Men


Men knew her for what she was...a wild, wicked, and willful woman. But they also knew that there was a woman to love, o woman to possess, a woman made for a man's enjoyment. When once a man held her in his arms and experienced her brand of loving, the rest of his days would be spent in loving, yearning for Allie-May, daughter of Sin.
