Not sure where she was or how she got there, Velma only knew she was a long way from her Las Vegas nightclub. Maybe the cyclone?

Ha- Jay Scotland is John Jakes' alter-ego. I have a copy of JJ as JS' Veils of Salome sitting on my TBR pile. Definitely another Maidenform moment :)

Whoo-hoo! I'm in the lead coming down the stretch! Heh.

I have a great idea for the next one... we touched on it a little in the original Cheesy Covers thread but it cries out for captions. And I happen to actually own the original book so I can make a nice scan.
THE RED LILY CROWN: A Novel of Medici Florence.
THE FLOWER READER.
THE SECOND DUCHESS.

Congratulations and I'm sure we're all looking forward to your cover in the next round!

Thanks to everyone who contributed and voted! :D
