In July, I nominated the US cover for Never Forget Me by Marguerite Kaye. The Harlequin Historical cover captured the time and place of WWI with a gentle, loving embrace and Poppies in the background. I thought it was poignant and beautiful, especially the yearning expressions on the couple’s faces. This week, I discovered the Mills and Boon August release and I fell in love with it, too. I’m torn because both covers capture the feelings couples felt when they separated during the war. I love the tender embrace and authentic feel of the US version but the hats and coats on the UK version are superb and who doesn’t love a passionate kiss?
Did I mention, I’m torn on which cover is my favorite? I love them both and can’t decide. Which cover wins your vote in the latest cover showdown and why is it your favorite? Vote in the poll below and help me decide.
Years ago, wearing gloves was the “proper” etiquette of the day. They were a sign of the privileged class and signaled status. In the fifties and early sixties, gloves were worn by “ladies” to social events and I can remember my Mom wearing them to church on Sunday and whenever she went out to a tea or coffee social with her friends. I’ve noticed several Historical romance book covers adding a touch of elegance and interest to the covers with a pair of gloves.
