2) He does not suit that photoshopped blonde hair. Looks like he was attacked by a bottle of Sun-In.
3) I'm sure Amy Winehouse style batwing eyes were all the rage in Regency London :p
1) The blurb on that one makes me a bit nervous. It sounds like it's going to sensationalize it to the max.

2) Sun-in pretty much describes it. Not attractive at all.

it looks like they actually took their clothes off - in the photo you can see it's the same dress she's wearing, just pushed down (and a photoshopped different colour). And his shirtsleeves are still around his wrists. They are definitely very airbrushed in general though!

Those two are getting around the book covers a lot. Even on a new edition of one of Jo Goodman's older romances.

Am I thinking of this one? If so, they're not the same - but I still feel like it's been on another cover...
