What did I say!! Check out the title!!!

Mind you I will no doubt still get this one - but I'm not liking the title!!

And I don't mean to nitpick - but doesn't the belly button seem awfully - well - high?

Ho-leee Crap!

Wouldn't he be hot in that long trench coat in the middle of the desert?

Shannon said...

Dude, the title is directly over his crotch. Horrible cover! Horrible title!

Wendy said...

It's so bad, it's hilarious.

Tracy said...

Wouldn't that gun slinger with the incredibly high belly button (or incredibly low rise pants) NEED an untamed bride for pity's sake? He can't have some tame, quiet woman like say....a greek tycoon might have, now can he? Of course not!

Jill D. said...

Braaaahhhhhaaa!!! You totally crack me up! I read this post and just laughed out loud.

sula said...

haha! Oh the poor dude. Has enough cash for an expensive long coat but apparently not enough bling for a shirt. tsk.

I am waiting to read the story about a tamed bride. Can't recall any of those yet but there sure do seem to be a lot of untamed ones running around. lol.

hey kristie, I am going to SF! woot!

CindyS said...

Yikes! I'm creeped out by the haziness of their faces. Are these CGI people? And yeah, the belly button is way too high!!

Don't you think the cover is worst though? Not only about the placement of the title... but the man... he doesn't look... proportionated.

kmont said...

I'd say the belly button is placed anatomically correct. It's just that his trouser snake ought to be popping out low as those pants are riding and a yeehaaww doggie to that. Just remember that average peeps are 8 heads tall. If you gage where the top of his forehead is between forefinger and thumb, measure down the bod, everything is lining up correctly. Ohhhh so heavenly correctly.

Thank goodness for that title protecting his modesty, or damn it whichever floats yours.

Stupid title.

Holy gunslinging man crotch!
Or is that a title slinging gun crotch?

Kristie (J) said...

Lisabea: It is quite the cover isn't it? I feel bad for the author - really bad.

Kmont: ROTFL - what an *still laughing* analytical summary. Maybe that's why she's untamed - there's nothing there to *cough* tame her with.

Nath: *chuckle* I think both are horrendous. I feel bad for the author - really bad.

Cindy: yeah - their faces are kind of blurry too aren't they?

Sula: the coat but no shirt is rather silly isn't it? Kind of like the historicals where he is standing there in winter with no shirt and she has no shoes. And I thought Harlequin was getting better on covers. And WOOT on San Fran - drooling over RICHard in person.

JillD: LOL I saw the title, saw the cover and just covered my face with my hand and thought NOOOOOOOOO

Tracy: *g* I suppose it is the Wild West so the heroine would have to be untamed - but damn it all - do they have to use that Really Stupid Title? And that silly cover?

Wendy: As a fellow lover of Historical Harlequins what they are doing is a damn shame isn't it?

Shannon: It's the Y in particular that's laughable isn't it?

Katie: same reason why they have shirtless men in winter I guess. *shaking head* Someone somewhere in the art department thinks we actually LIKE this silliness.

Rosie: *laughing* that about sums it up doesn't it.

Katie(babs) said...

His chest is a bit too big if you know what I mean.
*looks down at her own chest which is possibly smaller than the cover model's*

Not only do I not like the title, I hate the cover, too. I wouldn't be tempted to pick this up to read the back cover
