Lisa Kleypas’ Upcoming Book

I am excited about this book, as I absolutely loved the one before. Unfortunately, we have to wait until next year!

We will just ignore the fact there is NOTHING about this strapless dress that matches the fashions of the 1870s! Why are they giving such a popular author cheap prom dress covers?

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas combines the worlds of the Wallflowers with Marrying Winterborne in this irresistible story of how Sebastian’s son Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, meets his match in the eccentric and headstrong Lady Pandora.

  1. I honestly have no idea, and the prom dress covers bother the heck out of me. The job of the cover is to let the reader know what sort of story they will find within the pages, and if I were looking for a Victorian historical romance, and saw this, knowing nothing else, I’d think “contemporary YA” -first thing that came to mind was the Selection series, which I have not read, but the covers look very similar- and move on along, because this does not look like anything a gently bred Victorian miss would be wearing.

    I could rant on about the trends in cover art (and they are that; one day, the age of prom dresses will wane, and then we’ll have something else in its place) and how I remember when it was more common for a historical’s covers to actually reflect the history. One could say it’s more cost effective to work from stock, the readers maybe don’t care about the history (oh but some of us do) and “girl in a pretty dress” is merely shorthand, but Lisa Kleypas, people. Why the generic prom dress?
