The world of romance is filled with all sorts of weird and wonderful books with equally weird and wonderful covers. They say not to judge a book by its cover, but covers have an important job. In a busy market, they need to get the attention of potential readers. We thought we’d have a little fun each Sunday, sharing with you all some of the covers that do manage to do their job and catch our eye. Share with us your covers and thoughts in the comments!
Since this is all about covers, we’re not going to give you too much info on the books. If you’re intrigued and want to learn more, we’ve got links to both Goodreads and Amazon. If you hop straight to Amazon and purchase the book, it’ll help to keep LiatoF alive and sharing more of these covers!
Today’s commentary is brought to you just from the Faerie Queen. Unfortunately, the GingerSnap had to miss out on this one due to personal reasons. I miss her. 🙁
Lauren Rowe is on my List of Approved Authors ever since the joy that is Ball Peen Hammer graced my ears. Earlier this month, she released this gorgeous book about another Morgan brother, Colby. And oh wow, is it burning up my screen. Colby’s going to need to come over right now to put out the fire.
Just look at those blue eyes and serious expression! And then the tattoos highlighting those ripped, shadowy muscles. Then, to top it all off, the uniform. Oh lordy lord, this man in this uniform. Mmmmm.
Ever since I read Smut, I have loved Karina Halle. Every book I’ve read by her has been guaranteed to get my engines revving. And she knows how to do covers well. (Heat Wave is still one of my favourite covers ever.)
Emily and I had the privilege of meeting her at RARE18 London, and she was promoting The Swedish Prince there. I hope Emily doesn’t mind me speaking on her behalf, but this hot pink number caught our collective attention. Once the pink and teal has caught your eye, you’re drawn in by the sexy man with the cocky expression.
Don’t pretend that eyebrow doesn’t make you think naughty thoughts.
Ok. I don’t know what to think about this book.
Before reading the blurb, this cover made me think there’s some harem action going on with at least…three women?
After reading the blurb? I am a little bit terrified, and also a bit concerned about the portrayal of a certain subject. But yeah, mostly terrified. Those fingers are scary af, especially with the dark claws.
Full context, I’ve read one of Shay’s books before – Transcendence – and it was beyond bizarre. I’m starting to wonder if that’s her trademark.
What do these covers make you think? Have you got any books you’d like us to comment on?
