Q: Have you ever looked at book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised?
The example that immediately came to mind is
"The Raven Prince" By: Elizabeth Hoyt.
When I saw this cover, I hated it!
Looking at it now, it doesn't bother me, but...initially I just despised the cover. I didn't like the red. AND doesn't the cover kind of bring to mind force?
Look at the way he's gripping her arms - its just creepy.
However, I love the story! It's one of the most amazing romances I have ever read.
This is the new, improved cover...
and I like it much better.
