2 Colver, Alice Ross Passionate Puritan
New York A.L. Burt Company (c.1933) NO Reprint Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj Illustrated by (dj) Meredith Law 
[spine slightly turned, otherwise only lightly shelfworn, clean inside and out; jacket has wrinkling and a few tiny nicks/tears along bottom edge, small chip at base of spine]. "Janet Carroll, a golden haired girl with a tempestuous heart and a modest mein, is the 'passionate puritan' of [the author's] latest novel. Although an utterly charming heroine in the ordinary sense, Janet, like all of this well-known author's characters, is far more than an ordinary heroine. Moved by impulses, ambitions, and emotions which are amazingly true to life, she lives, in this book, a young of sharp contrasts and conflicting desires. ... a tender, sympathetic romance [which] shows a keen understanding and frank appreciation of the problems of young moderns in love."

3 Colver, Alice Ross Three Loves are Mine
New York Triangle Books 1947 (c.1946) Reprint Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dj 
[spine turned, moderate shelfwear to bottom edges of boards, pages age-toned (but not excessively); jacket a bit edgeworn, a few tiny nicks at spine ends, old price sticker adhered to front flap]. "Three men loved and needed Anne -- reckless, disillusioned Don, lovable and irresponsible Alec, and quiet, determined John. Each man involved Anne in the tangle of his life when she came to live at Stone House, awaiting Alec's return from the Pacific. And each found in his love for her a wall of opposition. Don, because of his bitterness, did not intend to marry. Alec hurt his chances with Anne because of the very charm of his nature. And John was already married." (What? I thought he was the quiet, determined one. Determined to quietly ditch his wife, I guess.)
