I have a deep dislike for the original cover released for one of my most anticipated reads 2017: Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas (it is at the bottom of this post). Of all the ridiculous non-historical historical romance covers, it might just be the worst!
However, the British/Australian cover I’ve seen more recently is lovely, and 19th century-appropriate.
Sure, if this book is set in the 1870s, like the others in the series, the gown might not be *completely* accurate for the decade, but I really love everything about it.
Here’s the modern-day prom queen cover I can’t stand, despite RT Magazine’s ridiculous article praising the historical inaccuracies!:
