Please add back cover summary.
Thank you.


New York is just another frontier town to Edge.
A horse and carriage is just a fancier mule wagon. But if he's caught in an alley, Edge's skill with the razor will make any gangland godson smart.

When Edge gets trapped in the crossfire of two New York gangland leaders,
he finds out that Boss Black and Emilio Orlando are gunning for him as well as each other.
Playing both sides against the middle,
Edge sets gang against gang, leader against leader, then steals away to his hideout in a nearby building. On the streets below, the gangland rumble explodes.

It's High Noon on the Bowery.

Also needs summary.
Please note as Harlequin Temptation #47.
Edited to add: I uploaded a photo of the cover if someone would like to switch it out with the very small picture that is now displayed.

As a man he covered all the bases.

Eileen Garrett had worked hard to be a supermom to her young son, Teddy. Then Teddy found a new hero-Little League coach Ross Mitchell. Ross was everything Eileen could want in a man--gentle, strong, devoted to her son. And in his arms she felt dizzying waves of desire.

Eileen wanted desperately to trust Ross's words of love.
But first she'd have to test his promises....

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6590 comments Added the description. I know there has been a lot of work on Harlequin, and I'm not comfortable adding. Perhaps you would want to post in one of the Series threads for that.

Edwina Callan | 3386 comments Elizabeth, I'm the one who found all the mistakes with the Harlequins and have been working with several librarians cleaning that mess up. I have spent hours and hours providing correct info on the books and taking countless pictures of covers.
This book is not one of the infamous horrors, I assure you. It just needs the larger picture of the cover that I've uploaded and the series number added not a complete clean up.

Edwina Callan | 3386 comments Thank you!

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6590 comments Glad this was done. I just wanted you to know that I was not comfortable working on the Harlequin issue and that it needed to be done by some one else.

That's ok ... Better safe than sorry. :)

Please note this one as
Bantam Books by Barbara Cartland #38

Just noticed something. Whomever added the ISBN forgot to put a 5 on the end ... it should be 55302449125 ... according to my book in hand.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Added the info. Adding the last number would make the ISBN 10 into an ISBN 11. Not sure what to do there. There is an edition on Amazon with 0553024493; wonder if that is somehow what the ISBN should be?

message 12: by Z-squared (new)

Z-squared | 8580 comments There are occasional 11-digit ISBNs, from the period when ISBNs were first introduced:

Those two books may be the same. Bantam's group-0 code is 553. So if someone were trying to create an ISBN according to the strict rules (i.e., no 11-digit ISBNs), then it would start with 0-553. If we append '02449', then the check digit is forced to be a 3.

I would love a clarification from Rivka or someone else about the rules for adding ISBNs to old books that were published without one initially. Should we leave the ISBN field blank and put the original 11-digit ISBN into the description field? Or should we use the converted ISBN that conforms better to the current rules and links to outside databases like Amazon?

I'm not completely clear on what the situation is.

If a book was initially published without an ISBN (say, in 1965), and was republished with NO changes except with an ISBN (say, in 1970), then there's no reason to nit include the ISBN. But if there are any changes (new or tweaked cover, etc.), then there would be two records, one with the ISBN (the 1970 one) and one without.
