Yes indeed :rolleyes: ;)

I started a shelf at GR so I could keep track of them. It seems to happen quite a lot.

I think Saraj Johnson's Reusable Covers page might have even more versions which use George Romney's Emma Hamilton portrait, plus quite a few others :)

I'm beginning to think there must be a one-stop cover shop doing a healthy bit of business.

yes she does, the red looks very unnatural. I didn't know they had collagen in the Wild West either, those lips don't look real! :eek:

I agree about the hair color. Lol, I just about did in the monitor with the collagen comment :eek:

A own a copy of Beyond Betrayal and it was pretty good for a lighter romance kind of read. You should see the original cover the publisher gave it years ago. Look it up if you dare...
