Issue Notes

Since Ace used Leroy lettering exclusively by the end of 1952, the handlettered second and fourth story are reprints from earlier romance titles.
Remarkable fact: three of the four artists in this issue are women.

Arlene visits Cuba to buy items for her Connecticut gift shop. She’s mistaken for Zelma by Burke. Burke and Arlene fall in love but he refuses to discuss Zelma. Back in the USA, Arlene learns Zelma was a gold-digger who only wanted Burke’s money. Arlene decides to break her engagement because she’d always remind Burke of her evil double. After a confrontation with the real Zelma, Arlene changes her mind, since she and Zelma are totally different in personality, and Burke knows this.
