That looks very pre-Raphaelite.

It's John W. Waterhouse. The original painting is called Boreas

Personally, I think it looks best on Twilight of Avalon.
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!

[quote=""Lady of Bennachie""]Sorry about poor quality, it's just a quick screenshot, but I couldn't help but notice this in the Amazon Kindle Bestseller list...[/quote]

There's dozens of those! I see them all the time, some better than others, lol:

And this one isn't exactly the same but I'm pretty sure it's from the same photoshoot:

Wow and thank you. I've been keeping a dejavu shelf at GR and will have to add these to it. This is worse than the girl in the checkered red dress on all those western romances.

The Australian cover for Flame of Sevenwaters is The Soul of the Rose. And Seer of Sevenwaters is Boreas.

I'm a Waterhouse fan, but I wish it wasn't always the same handful of paintings.

If it is the same dress they certainly got good use of it! Nice to see Downton Abbey putting in an appearance too.

Wow! Some of these images really do get around, don't they?

I wonder why they felt the need to badly photoshop the lady's hair on the Seize the Dawn cover?

lol, I keep a wishlist of them on Amazon. I've got more but you may already have them - and they are mostly indie books, I find it more interesting when at least one of them is from a major publisher.

Interesting that the last one is a double of both the dress/model and the background!
