Today’s Friday Fiction is another sleazy paperback direct from the early 1960s. I couldn’t find this particular title in World Cat, but I found other titles he wrote that I am just going to have to get. They all have awesome titles like Seductive Nymph and Victims of Lust.
Our story begins with a grouchy, unhappy, overweight man named Rene Blanc. By page 3, he has made a deal with the devil. He will be gorgeous and irresistible to all women. The catch is he can’t fall in love or else his new found body and charismatic personality will disappear. Clever Rene develops a “love ’em and leave ’em” strategy so he won’t fall in love (as if no one ever thought of this before). Clearly, you can see where this is headed.
