Unnatural

Unnatural front cover. Towards the bottom right of the image, a blonde with hair to her shoulders stands, seen from her chest up. She stands at a three-quarter angle facing right of the reader, and her head is slightly tilted in the same direction. Her right hand is raised to her chest level, holding a lit cigarette. She is wearing a strapless white dress that shows her cleavage, and a layered necklace with gems and stones. Her eyes are half-closed and look towards her right, and she is smiling slightly. Behind her in the background, the figure of another woman, a brunette, can be seen standing naked, in the process of removing a white blouse which is already over her head. She stands next to what looks like a closet with red doors. Her back is lit by hard light coming from the top left of the image. Below the cover art, there is a yellow stripe with a brief description of the novel.

So strange a love

So Strange a Love front cover. The busts of two women take up most of the visual space.

Her hair is up on a bun to the left of her head, and she looks forward with wide open, blue eyes, lips slightly parted. Her torso is naked, and she is wearing an earring. Beside her, on her right and facing the reader, stands a brunette, partially covered by the redhead. Her wavy, loose hair flips over her shoulders, and she is looking at the redhead with half-open eyes. Her torso, too, is naked. The background is purplish blue, and the scene is lit from the front-left.

Her expression is serene, yet ambiguous.

Her hair is tied up with a hair clip at the top of her head and flows down to her nape. A strap of her brassiere is visible over her right shoulder. Her head, turned to her right, partially faces the reader. Her eyes are looking down toward her right. What seems to be a khaki military garment is partially shown, wrinkled, behind her back. Behind the blonde, to the left of the image, stands a brunette in profile, also at a three-quarter angle towards the back of the image, facing left. She has on a khaki military shirt that partially hangs, disclosing her shoulders and the top of her back, and exposing the strap of her brassiere on her left side. She seems to be wearing a khaki skirt. Her hair is up and she holds a cigarette in her left hand, which she stares at. The scene is lit from the top left.
