[quote=""LadyB""]The vest isn't exactly period attire, although I guess they managed to cover most of it up in the first one. I'm no Photoshop expert but she's practically a blank canvas wearing that, they could surely have put a half-convincing dress on her![/quote]

I hadn't looked that closely at first, good catch.

What is she holding onto? Without the gate there she looks like she's conducting an orchestra! And that background - what a mess... yikes.

The background looks like a kaleidoscope image, weird choice.

Are those handrails or something she's holding onto? I have no idea. Terrible.

Both those covers are very messy, the other one looks like it's been rescued from a fire.

Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

[quote=""Misfit""]I think we've got a matched pair here. Note the Goodman book is set mostly in a small Colorado mining town I think 1870s, the other two are Regency.

Same couple?

I wouldn't have picked up on these two if they weren't so close together on the HR freebie list today.
