She Had Nothing To Lose But Her Reputation

From the back:

When pretty Sally Winters found herself stranded in the wide-open town of Hahia Cruz, the reckless Marlowe brothers took a more than brotherly interest in the lush blonde’s predicament.

Charlie Marlowe thought Sally was virginally innocent, and offered to marry her. Money-mad Eric saw her as a choice piece of merchandise, to be bought, used and resold. Cynical Mark sensed that Sally was as hip as a beatnik, and meant to prove it before his brothers’ very eyes.

But it was Geza de Roche, suave operator of “the hottest club west of Paris” who offered Sally the daring proposition which proved how far a “lost” girl would go to get out of Mexico!

She Rented Her Body To Any Man — Any Woman –

I am not really sure what is going on here. The painting and the cover are clearly both by Maguire, and both are based on the set of reference photos, and Heritage Auctions is selling them as a set, but the painting is clearly not the same as the image on the cover. Even if the hair  and the sheet had been retouched for the cover (which is the kind of thing that happened) the whole pose of the body is slightly different, and the head is looking a different way.

I suspect this is an early draft that was rejected by the publisher, or simply a different scene painted from the same set of reference photos. Either way, a lovely set.
