Her love was for sale — at the right price…

From the back:

Life was suddenly very complicated for Ann Freeman. Too many people were making demands of her!
Cal Marker wanted her for his stable, to help pay for his daily quota of heroin.
Clara Lundy needed Ann to satisfy her craving for abnormal “love.”
Casey Shean, sweet, “square” and very much in love, wanted Ann for his wife.
As if all this wasn’t enough, there was Crowley, the vice cop, who was out to “get” Ann, in more ways than one.

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.
