Another one for the collection!

I've been looking at the new Alison Weir cover for her forthcoming UK novel and I'm sure I've seen it before in a different incarnation - or is it just too many headless women around? http://www.amazon.co.uk/A-Dangerous-Inh ... 318&sr=8-1

It's driving me nuts trying to remember where I've seen it before!

He looks more like a male stripper that she's hired, especially in the first picture. And where did she get that dress from?

JC Penny?

Both of these are older romances that have just been digitalized. There's been a lot of them popping up lately, I think it has something to do with the whole Dorchester Publishing kerfuffle and authors are getting their rights back. Don't know for sure though.

I confess that at first glance, I read that first title as "Midnight Boner." Which seemed appropriate.

She looks as if she's trying to cop a feel and missing the mark!
