We should be voting on who designed it better!

Well in that case I'd have to vote for the Inconvenient Duchess' taste in ribbons; His Innocent Mistress certainly wasn't innocent of the the crime of pairing that clashing dark red bow with the hideous orangey-red dress (although in both cases the lady looks like a box of chocolates).

In your post, The Cry for Freedom wins simply because the lady's head remains intact :)

I agree, the colour clash is vile :eek: , although I think both dresses are pretty hideous ;)

I prefer the dress on the right in TCfF; the other one looks like a wedding dress (maybe it is!).

Sorry about poor quality, it's just a quick screenshot, but I couldn't help but notice this in the Amazon Kindle Bestseller list...

Good catch, but what are the chances they ended up right next to each other like that?

I know, quite a coincidence! I bet the authors would rather they weren't right next to each other though.

It seems I'm on fire today, I wasn't even deliberately looking for matching book covers, but I spotted another one (Wuthering Heights cover is an e-book, Esther is a paperback published by Tree of Life).
