Peggy Gaddis, under a variety of names, wrote traditional romances. She also wrote “love novels,” a somewhat sleazier form of romance that was invented by the lending library publishers. These publishers faded away by 1955, those that survived shifting to soft core porn. Most of the older authors, like Gaddis, chose to return to writing traditional romances.
