Vegas laid out the covers on the table like jewels. At first glance, all the covers merge with the repeated gold Bold and the Beautiful font (there’s an official name) hovering over a sculpted physique and a misty waterfall. Hairstyles seem to draw heavily from the 80s but otherwise conform to a bodice-ripping time period… At a second glance, Vegas was quick to point out that these books were by different authors; the covers portraying an illustrated array of exotic locales. Centre stage is a beautiful, beach tanned couple - polar opposites in society (according to the blurb) but their exploits lead to a lip-locked embrace. They are captured in what Vegas coins the ‘forbidden’ of a far-flung time. Simply put, each book had a different tell-tale take on a fantasy. Once you adjusted to the aesthetic, we agreed these covers were beautiful. There is something picturesque and poster-like about the cover illustrations.
