The Smutketeers have been blessed by the cover fairies. A fact I’m eternally grateful for. :)
Yum. I lurve my covers. And no one can deny that a good cover attracts the reader’s eye. I know it attracts mine. 3 men and one woman? Ooh lala. a sexy chick in leather with a gun? Sounds exciting.
I love My Shifter Showmance cover, don’t get me wrong. But it doesn’t scream dirty sex in the pantry. There is no drool-worthy mancandy. On the outside anyway. I still love it, but it got me thinking.
Crystal Jordan’s Unbelievable series is full of her special brand of super awesome down and dirty nookie, but by the covers I will admit my first desire is for a hot cup of coffee-not a cold shower. Luckily, I know her-and I know she is a guaranteed steamy read.
Now I remember going to the store and hoping the cover was innocuous. I mean, I had to take it to the young, gum chewing girl at the counter and the awkward teen bagger standing beside her. E-books freed cover artists and authors alike to let all the wild inside come out to play. Thank goodness :)
My question is-do misleading or funny covers affect readers? Especially erotic romance readers? And what is your favorite book with the most misleading or innocent looking cover?
