THE RISE OF RANDY COMFORT
MEET RANDOLPH TURPIN COMFORT. Tall, dark, handsome, sexy and definitely out of work. To make ends meet he takes a job as handyman at Sylvan Glade Mansions - the home of rich, beautiful - and sometimes lonely - women. Is he handy? Well just ask the residents:
Originally issued on Futura in 1976 with the yellow cover and then in reprinted in 1979 with the white cover. There was also a reprint in 1977 but not sure if the cover was different
Yellow Cover: An unusual choice of font/style - not used on any of the other Morgan books, features a young lady in dungarees and nothing else reclining against a hold-all full of money. Not clear why that is. 6/10
The start of a new series for Stan - Randy is not a million miles removed from Russ Tobin..he's an umemployed rogue, 6ft 2 and 22 years old with an eye for the ladies. He's had loads of short-lived jobs and the story begins with him signing on at the dole office. He is swiftly offered a job at Sylvan Glade Mansions, an exclusive block of luxury flats in Knightsbridge - and it doesn't take long before he has his feet well and truly under the table (or more accurately under the duvet). By the end of the book he has secured his own living quarters in the Mansion and made a list of all the people he has met - he has roughly half of the residents still to meet and he's already bedded more women in a couple of days than even Tobin himself could imagine.
