Synopsis

Furniture designer Mike meets Lee, unaware she is the “designer-president of a successful modern furniture company” (he thinks she's the owner's daughter). They become friends, although he believes “a woman should have brains enough to stick to what nature intended...every woman’s goal is marriage and family!” They fall in love, but when Mike finds out Lee is the company president, he believes she’s been mocking him and leaves. Lee apologizes and offers Mike a partnership in her company...and her hand in marriage.

Terry is a devoted fan of advice columnist Marla. When Terry falls in love with Kent while on vacation, she discovers Marla is her rival for his affections.

Synopsis

Janet is engaged to Merchant Marine officer Doug. While he’s away, she attends a dance school reception and is wooed by the owner Renaldo. He thinks she’s wealthy because Janet borrowed a gown from the owner of the house where her parents are poor relatives and servants. Janet dates Renaldo and experiences “an ecstasy so exquisite that it was almost unendurable” when he kisses her. Janet decides to break up with Doug but learns Renaldo is a fortune hunter. When Janet gets home, Doug is there and is none the wiser.
