Fever in the sun

Fever in the Sun front cover. A redhead woman is shown lying stretched on her back on a wicker lounger, diagonally filling the center of the image. She is wearing a pink negligee which is open on both sides, exposing her cupped-brassieres and panties. She is wearing a pink ribbon on her hair. Her face is turned toward her left and towards the reader, but her eyes focus on a man sitting at the edge of the lounger to her right and who leans over, looking directly at her, his right-hand firm over her on the seat of the lounger, and his left hand placed against the back of the chair. He is dressed in brown pants, a belt, and a purple, long-sleeved shirt with green stripes. The woman has her right hand around his neck. There is a plant on the ground, on the foreground, similar to the taro or elephant's ear plant. The background is a solid red, and there are four yellow looped lines around the cover's title toward the top left. The scene is lit from the front, top.
Fever in the Sun back cover. IT WAS SUMMERTIME...AND THE LOVING WAS EASY...The crowd at the Lodge was gay and friendly...and some of the guests mixed too well! There was Gloria Logan - for whom, at 30, the hot, sweet ardor of honeymoon days had long since turned into the dull routine of desultory love-making...catapulting her into discreet indiscretions! There was Dave Rogers - for whom, at 19, the lure of an older woman held more excitement and promise than the callow charms of undiscriminating co-eds...and Gloria's warm-blooded ripeness promised much! There was Cindy Hamilton - who, at 18, had already been subjected to a forced, and unwanted experience - and who was now willing to experiment with an exotic kind of love! There was Anita Lundquist - a blonde bombshell who liked bewitching brunettes - like Cindy! And then there were the week-end husbands who swarmed down either too tired to toy with love or too eager to find a new playmate!
