[quote=""Mythica""]I can't decide if these are the same and one has just had more work done on it or if they're from the same photo shoot or if they're completely different and just happen to look alike:

Oh good catch on the window. I swear I've seen it somewhere else before, but not the one you've got here.

The lady on the right could be a descendant of the lady on the left. It very much looks like the same house too.

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled

Obviously what the lady wants is the President's lunch! :p sorry, couldn't resist.
I think all the black costume ones are clearly from the same photo shoot with doctoring.

In which case, the Notorious Life lady has to be the original, and the Fatal Likeness and Counterfeit Heiress are just the copies ;)

I can't go zooming in on the What The Lady Wants cover until I get to a touch screen at home, but look at this:

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

No, different window. The drapes are closer together, and anyway, the one in the last picture is a sliding window--you can see the offset. The one in the first left side is a casement.
