I haven’t done any book reviews and I’m not going to today. As a matter of fact, I haven’t even read this book. For all I know, it could be the creme de la creme of romance tales. But my God people, look at this cover!
Okay, so you have your prototypical romance cover. The strong male with the bulging biceps and unfortunate hairstyle, the swooning female with the long neck, the heaving chest, the three hands …
Wait … what? Three hands?
One on the ground, one resting on her leg, one holding his hand.
You have to wonder, how many people reviewed this illustration before it was selected as the book cover? And how long did it take for it to be noticed?
I don’t know about you, but these are the sorts of things I really enjoy.
I have no idea how Christina Dodd felt about it.
