LMAO, I was enjoying your blog and on the right side there is a pic of a ship going down...yep thats what I would be doing.
I knew exactly to which picture she was referring and it suddenly struck me as rather funny also. It got me to thinking about other covers and step backs that I have seen on books that at the time struck me strange or humorous but didn't stop me from buying and reading the book.
As to the picture in question, it's the step back from CAPTIVE OF MY DESIRES by Johanna Lindsey and yes, I thought it strange that it looks like the ship is going down and yet the heroine and hero seem to be in a clench of desire instead of getting their butts to safety. Then again, if you look closer at the picture, the hero is tied to the mast. Shouldn't she be getting him loose instead of seducing him?
I started perusing other covers and found some that certainly do conjure up questions that probably don't really benefit the book inside. Enjoy and feel free to mention your own precious funny cover finds.
|How about this one? Can anyone please tell me exactly how he got her in that position? I think she's either scrunched up into a ball so tight that she can't breathe |
or she's got really, really long arms!
|Then there's this one ... all I could think when I saw it was, hmmmm .... breast sex rather than best sex!|
| Is he trying to kiss her or attack her? Perhaps he needs a tic tac, because she sure doesn't look happy? |
Love can be torment, but really?
|We all know that men should do breasts checks just like women do but I'm not sure if this guy is declaring his love or asking her about a lump in his breast?|
|This one has me wondering if she's got a tick, run in her stocking, or something curious growing on her calf.|
|Are these two trying to do the wrestling move, |
Rock the Cradle? Hope she's worth it because his
back must be killing him!
|How about this one? Is he giving her a scalp |
massage or about to break her neck?
|And this one? Is he checking her for lice?|
|Hang on baby!! I gotcha! Who needs to get a pedicure when your guy drags your feet in the desert sand?|
|OK, I don't even begin to know what to say |
about this one? What is this guy doing?
|Even one of my absolute fave romances |
has a cover that always nudge me strange.
Is it me or does she look like she's got gas??
Happy Reading and Cover Perusing Everyone!
Hey folks, Dalila G brought this cover to my attention, unbelievable!!
