Back in the 1950's and 60's, Orrie Hitt was a prolific writer of romance novels. The "hanky panky" in his novels is tamer and less explicit than in many of today's romance novels, but the storylines were incredibly engaging. His characters are so fully developed that you either love them, hate them or pity them. In this novel, overworked and underpaid Danny O'Conner decides to take a little vacation at a resort, then decides to stay and work there. He soon becomes involved with three women, a lot of intrigue, and a great deal of danger.
Orrie Hitt was a prolific writer of “gritty” romances in the 1950s and '60s. He wrote over 150 novels and was very good at what he did. Hitt still has a large following today. The website “Criminal Element” called him “The Shakespeare of Shabby Street".
Orrie Hitt was a prolific writer of “gritty” romances in the 1950s and '60s. He wrote over 150 novels and, unlike many hack writers of the time, he was very good at what he did, and still has a large following today. The website Criminal Element called him “The Shakespeare of Shabby Street". Here’s a bit more of what they had to say about him:
They worshipped nature in the raw! Dela knew what it was to worship nature. After all, where she came from it was considered quite proper to swim or sunbathe unclad. She decided to welcome this strange sect that wanted to camp on her property, thought she might even join in the fun and games.
Summer is the season for sin. When Ted Clinton arrived at the vacation inn, he found that it featured some unexpected diversions. Like sleek Ruth Henderson and her bevy of hostesses whose job it was to please male guests. Lady vacationers, too, starving for love and excitement, did their share to turn summertime into playtime.
It's 1959. The town of Clinton, just a short train ride from the Big Apple, is awash with sexuality. There's Olive, who feels the urge to merge with her married neighbor Sally, but fears her lesbian lust is an abomination. Olive's long-suffering husband, Jerry, seeks solace in the arms of his bombshell sister-in-law. And why did Sally's husband, Fred, disappear with Ruth Archer at the hottest party on Morris Drive every Saturday night? Pulp sleazemaster Orrie Hitt hits a bull’s-eye with this shocking tale of tawdry affairs.
