Whose Hand is That?
So my DH was looking at the shiny new Vexing the Viscounts that had come in a big box from Dorchester. His eyebrows drew together and he tipped the book sideways. Then he pointed to the hand partially hidden by the lettering of the title and asked, "Whose hand is that?"
I picked up a copy and squinted at it. I'd been so taken with the yearning between Daisy and Lucian (and his Colin Firth-ish good looks) I hadn't really studied the rest of the art work. From the breastbones down, my characters have quite a game of Twister going on. I think I have it figured out now, but just off the top of your head, whose hand is resting on Daisy's lap?
And while we're on the subject of covers, I thought I'd remind you this St. Patrick's day, that I did once write a romance set in Ireland under my Diana Groe pen name.
She's an Irish princess. He's a Viking raider. Their very births should have made them bitter foes. But sometimes, love doesn't recognize the enemy until it's too late. This story won a rare All About Romance Desert Isle KEEPER Review. And ERINSONG is available at Amazon and B&N.com
Foreign rights to many of my titles have sold, but I have more ERINSONG covers than any other. Here's how my Irish story appeared in German.
This is how the Italians visualized my big hairy Vikings. Love the dragonship and the heroine Brenna's emerald green gown.
Thanks to one of my Dutch readers (you know who you are, Nynke!) I found the Dutch version of ERINSONG online. Is it just me or does it look like there's a little friendly bondage going on here? My hero Jorand certainly seems to be strapped to the neck of the dragonship. And he doesn't seem to mind.
Hope you enjoyed my stroll down book cover lane. Don't forget to leave a note letting me know whose hand you think is on Daisy's lap.
