The Making of Romance Covers

An Affair with a Notorious Heiress (Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James #4) by Lorraine Heath

As much as I criticise a lot of romance covers, I do love the “behind the scenes” videos and articles about them (comes from growing up in the theatre).

There is another great lengthy article in Cosmopolitan about the making of the cover for Lorraine Heath’s upcoming book. (I admit, I don’t love the cover – except the colour! – but the article is worth a read.)

Having never read this magazine in my life, I’m really surprised by how much positive romance genre coverage this magazine has.

Canberra Autumn Sonya Heaney 5-4-2013

Grayson Manor Haunting by Cheryl Bradshaw is currently free.

Man Drought by Rachael Johns

Rachael Johns’ Man Drought is still on sale for $1.05.

Oh boy, this week went crazy as far as reading is concerned. Once I get myself into a mindset, I cannot step out of it, and I’ve been powering through books set in 19th century England like they’re going out of fashion! The problem with my obsessive attitude to genres is that I burn myself out fast. In about a week, I predict I’ll be onto another type of book entirely!

 Seducing the Princess by Mary Hart Perry

I reviewed Mary Hart Perry’s Seducing the Princess HERE.

The Accidental Prince by Michelle Willingham

I also read The Accidental Prince by Michelle Willingham. It was very much a fairy tale story (not set in England). I plan to review it tomorrow.

Other books on my radar this week include She Tempts the Duke by Lorraine Heath, which I am slowly working my way through when I have a spare few minutes. I also read Eileen Dreyer’s Never a Gentleman, but started to lose faith on page 27 when the ‘heroine’ punched the hero in the face for no good reason.

The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly

I bought myself a Kindle copy of The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly, a book I picked up at random in India eight years ago and read on the plane home.

It’s a favourite of mine, so I thought I needed another copy!

Hattie Wilkinson Meets her Match by Michelle Styles

I’m now starting on Hattie Wilkinson Meets her Match by Michelle Styles.
