Candy

(1960)
A novel by

Jeff Flanders has a perfectly good life. Until Candace Cain sashays into it and turns it upside-down.

Jeff's got a good-looking wife; he loves her and she loves him. He's got a job, swinging a desk at a semi-shady finance company, signing off on usurious loans to losers; he doesn't love it and it doesn't love him, but it's easy work and it pays the bills. Until a girl called Candy applies for a $1000 loan - with no job, no bank account, no security. Nothing but a beautiful face, an awesome body, and all the nerve in the world.

He lends her the money himself. That's a mistake. In return, she takes him to bed. That's a bigger one. All she wants in the world is someone who'll keep her in style. All he wants is more Candy. . .

CANDY, first published in 1960, is a noir novel of sexual obsession. It could as easily qualify for the Classic Crime Library, as it's unquestionably a crime novel, but on reflection LB decided it was a better fit in the Collection of Classic Erotica.

Besides, this way we get to use the gorgeous Paul Rader cover.

This ebook edition of CANDY includes, as a bonus, the opening chapter of Book #3 in the Collection of Classic Erotica, GIGOLO JOHNNY WELLS.
