One Endless Hour by Dan J Marlowe

"The Man With Nobody's Face"

Drake had a new face, a new name, and he had buried the past. Most of it, anyways. In unmarked graves. They had all been double crossed bastards. Now he needed a new deal, something he could handle alone. Like a nice, quiet town. But somebody had other plans for Drake. Suddenly it was too late to back out, and too early to die..........

Madam You're Mayhem (II) by Carter Brown

Fix me a getaway...
I'll need a fast car and faster women....
If the cops don't get me...
The curves will.....

Barney Blaine was heading to Mexico, land of the sombrero, manana, and Carmen Esteros! Carmen was wearing a bikini, or she Barney would say, two and a half spangles. She'd do anything for a man who would drive in the the Carrera Panamericana, and that meant him! Only Barney was co-driver for Julie Adams, the dizziest blonde who ever tried to accelerate coming into a right angled bend at 120 miles per hour. But that was only his cover for a red hot assignment. If one would ever go to Mexico you would find the people very friendly, like the guys who stake one out over an ant hill with a trail of honey leading into one's open mouth. But Barney couldn't keep his big mouth shut, and that is how he came to be a length behind the Gordini with the speedo showing 150. The curve was looming nearer and nearer, in another five seconds it would be too late for either of them....

Raw Lust by Hi Holborn

His inhibited acts reaped a whirlwind of aroused passions as 
he probed the hidden animal cravings of desire maddened women!!

They were tortured by lustful cravings!
He instilled a fiery longing for his manliness among the restless women who crossed his path. Ever alert for an opportunity he took advantage to their every erotic desire, lustful thought and carnal wish to satisfy his frenzied drive toward quenching his burning need!!

Kiss The Boys And Make Them Die by James Yardley

Introducing Kiss Darling, 
the super girl with the wow IQ, 
a dynamite body, 
and a wild weakness for danger

"A bird? A superbomb? No, it's Supergirl!

To her womanizing boss, Kiss Darling is a budding young beauty ripe for the picking. To her army of hopeful seducers, she's a promise of sexual paradise worth any entry fee. To all men everywhere, she's an erotic dream come true.

Little do these male chauvinists suspect that beneath that luscious exterior lie nerves of steel, a mind quicker than a thousand computers, and the ability to do anything--well, almost anything--a man can do, and better.

When Kiss Darling swings into red-hot action and uninhibited adventure, she puts the boys to shame...

Brotherhood of Lust by Don Holliday

Their Campus Games Were An Orgy Of Sin!

Passion Diploma........
was what you earned if you were part of the inner group on this campus. For here the big quiz was how many orgies you attended and how many twisted hungers you could satisfy before the semester ran out. There was plenty of babes, plenty of booze, and plenty of passion hungry guys to fill any exam sheet with shocking examples of sin life on the textbook front. And pity the poor freshman who didn't fall into line and sign up for a course in fleshpot psychology, on campus of.........
.......Sinners Cum Laude!
