Not-so-enticing lines from promotional copy

Just ran across this one in the promo for a WWI novel I'm adding to my website (The Lieutenant's Whistle by Fred Stemme): "Her violet-colored eyes burn into his heart, branding him." Powerful eyes! I'm not so sure I'd want to meet that woman in a dark alley.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
