I for one am in need of a laugh. So without further ado, I present three of the cheesiest romance novel covers known to man. Not that I’ve ever read them—ahem—I read Shakespeare…lots and lots of Shakespeare.
1. A Very Virile Viking by Sandra Hill
Comment: Maybe I need to brush up on my Scandinavian history, but I didn’t know Vikings wore leather hot pants into battle, or at all… Perhaps hot pants are the secret to his virility? Uh-oh, he’s raising his sword; this Viking is menacing, among other things… Are you scared? I’m scared. It’s not every day you meet a virile Viking, let alone a very virile Viking.
2. Heart Mate by Robin D. Owens
Comment: I’m speechless. The cat says it all. Not to mention the stupid title, the cane, the heart necklace that you could buy at Forever 21 for $5.99 or less (I know because my 13 year old cousin has one), the mullet. Yeah…
3. The Bewitched Viking by Sandra Hill
Comment: I know, I’m picking on Sandra Hill. Here’s an author that really got screwed over at the art department. Pity her, don’t laugh at her books. Okay, you tell me, is that come-hither-stare and beckoning finger suppose to seduce me or scare the crap out of me? I’m not bewitched, I’m running the other way!
