Three long-out-of-print novels originally published by Gold Medal Books in the 1950s and 1960s are reprinted here.
Two Women Too ManyTo otherwise conservative Professor Bradley Cannon, women were a definite problem.Take Cornelia - and he did - one twitch of her lush, ripe body and he was lost.Take his favorite student, Maggie - and he did - one provocative leer and the chase was on.Take his wife, Madelaine - and he wished someone would - she left him cold, but the million dollars she owned generated a certain heat of their own.It was obvious that Peermont College would not tolerate Prof. Bradley's attempt to corner the woman market, so two of them had to go.That posed the question: How could he keep Maggie - she was the only one who could really satisfy his passions - and get rid of Cornelia and Madelaine, without losing the million dollars and without creating a scandal that would rock the college to its foundations?
Ten million dollars to be divided equitably among the departed Grandfather Hunter's remaining family, with a proviso being, in proper legal terms, that the entire ten million dollars was to be held in trust for the exclusive use of Senorita Fogarty her lifetime, and for the lifetime of her pups (Senorita Fogarty being a Chihuahua of questionable breeding) and for the lifetime of her pup's pups, etc., etc. Only upon the death of Senorita Fogarty and her pups (if any) would the inheritance go to the family.'Tis plain to see that the life of Senorita Fogarty wasn't worth two cents, much less ten million dollars. But to the rescue! Our senorita is to be protected by the Crumps, Grandfather Hunter's trusted servants. And did we forget to mention that the erstwhile heirs are a rather bungling, ineffectual lot?Will Senorita Fogarty outwit the scheming Hunter family? Will the Hunters regain the birthright that is undeniably theirs (all ten million dollars' worth)? Will the Crumps . . . oh, forget it - just read the book!
