Three strange women

Three Strange Woment front cover: Against a gray background there are two women. One is in the background standing in the center, her body facing right of the reader. She is a blonde with short hair brushed back and is wearing a brown skirt and a white blouse, which she seems to start to remove, revealing a white brassiere. Her face is frontal, slightly tilted to her left, and she gazes straight out at the reader. The other woman is a redhead with short, curly hair who is lying down in the foreground, her body facing the reader, head to the left of the image. She is wearing a white peignoir, her left shoulder exposed by the sleeve that hangs over it. Her left arm is bent, hand to the left of the image, and she is hugging a purple pillow with both hands, with her torso raised. Her right leg is bent, with the knee pointing forward, and uncovered. There is a beaded curtain between the two women, and the scene is lit from the front with hard light.

We two won't last

We Two Won't Last front cover. The background color, a dark pink, occupies most of the image. Two women appear, small and centered, between two words of the book's title. One is a brunette on a chair, and she sits with her bowed head and her knees pointed to the right and her torso turned sharply to her right, facing the reader. Both of her hands grasp the edge of the chair, towards her back, and they face the reader. She wears a brown dress with a round, white collar. Another woman, a redhead, stands behind her, to her left, partially covered by her and the chair. She is facing left of the reader, in profile, with her head bowed, and she wears a dress and high heels. She looks pregnant. The scene is lit from the top right of the image, casting shadows.

Honey at her lips

Honey at her lips front cover: A blonde with long, wavy hair faces the reader to the right of the image, standing in front of a white wall and a white door that is slightly ajar. She is seen from her thighs up, wrapped in a lace shawl with nothing else underneath, and which she holds together at stomach level with her right hand on her left hip. Her left arm is extended downwards, the hand at the front of her left thigh. Her bosom is partly exposed. She is looking straight out at the reader with her head slightly tilted down, left shoulder raised. The scene is lit from the front, and a shadow can be seen behind the opened door.

The Delicate Vice front cover. The scene is an urban scene at night. Two women, one brunette and one blonde, stand to the left of the image. The blonde has her back towards the reader at a three-quarter angle to the left and is wearing a yellow dress, adjusted to her waist and with a slit at the right to mid-thigh. She is wearing white, low heels and is leaning against a cast-iron lighting pole to her left. She holds a cigarette in her right hand, arms stretched downwards. Her hair curls upwards over her ears. The brunette is standing to her left, facing the reader. She is wearing a purple blouse with short sleeves and a V-neck, and slim-fit black pants to her ankles, with black, flat shoes. Her hair is short and her legs are parted, left hand's thumb tucked inside her pants' pocket. She looks down at the blonde's chest. Behind the women, a street with buildings with neon lights is seen. Light comes out of doorways and windows, and the women are lit by light from the street lamp above their heads, casting their shadows on the ground below them.

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.
