A romance with a man and a… very large dog?

There has been a trend recently for romance covers with a man and a dog – and no woman.

I’ve heard from more than one reader that they don’t like to see attractive women with “their” heroes on book covers (which sort of smacks of misogyny!), but I’ve got to say, I find the man-and-dog covers a little… creepy.

Honestly, book covers like these make me think of some sort of cross-species, bestiality romance!

  1. Ha! I loved Irresistible Force. And yes, the ‘no women on the cover thing’ is misogynist – and creepy! the Doberman covers are weird, but I like the bottom two. I love books with dogs, suspense and thrills. 😉
