A whole new level of awful…

Happy Ukrainian New Year!

A year and a week ago I featured this utterly gorgeous cover for Lisa Kleypas’ The Devil in Winter.

This year I’m back with an alternate version…

As you may know, this – erm – “artwork” belongs to the cover of the much-loved The Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas. It is one of the ugliest stepbacks I’ve ever seen for historical romance. The whole Dracula cape and no top while rolling in the snow is beyond ridiculous. And Evie’s mega-perm!

You would think this is a book from generations ago, and yet it is only from 2006.

What WERE people thinking the first time round?
