‘Once a Cowboy’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
What is this guy gazing at so longingly? Maybe a distant ranch? Or perhaps at Alexandra, the private investigator who uncovers the truth about his past and predictably becomes his lover?
From the artfully arranged hat to the jeans with chaps that draw attention to his, erm, assets, this is one quinte…
‘Sheikh With Benefits’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
What would possess anyone to select this image for the cover of anything, let anyone a novel that’s meant to be a sexy read? This is literally the most awkward kiss ever. The guy has quite possibly fallen asleep on her face or is potentially beginning to attempt mouth-to-mouth resusc…
‘Night of the Cougar’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
Out of focus blues, misty lilacs, a sensual kiss and the silhouette of a cougar -- Is this shadowy cover meant to be mysterious? Because trust us when we tell you that there is nothing unexpected about the storyline.
A couple get together, then meet again but he turns into a cougar at night -- hence …
‘Sweet Evil’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
This cover displays the divide in the novel right from the word go. Red and black, light and shadows, blonde and dark -- the two sides to this story are evident. Even the title seems to be a tale of two sides in itself. In a way, the story is told before even the first page has been flipped...
‘The Perfect Pitch’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
We’re not sure which is more offensive: the cheesy word-play in the title of this book or the terrible cover that combines baseball and sex.
Worse still is the badly superimposed shot of the semi-naked couple onto a sky-blue (?) background, both displaying corny grins...
‘Master of Marshlands’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
This cover is just wrong wrong wrong. For starters, we're fairly sure the front of this book is showing a beach, NOT a marshland. And what’s with the shell? Unless it plays some hugely  important role in this cheesy romance novel, this cover’s cringe-worthy …
‘Lord and Lady Spy’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
The title of this novel is fairly self-explanatory: there's a Lord and a female spy, and they're in love. The unappealing pink front cover merely serves to confirm this. What we see is a couple, dressed in the style of old-fashioned English nobility, with their backs to one another as a si…
‘Yule Be Mine’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
From the cringey wordplay to the festive fluttering of snowflakes, the cover of 'Yule Be Mine' leaves no room for subtlety.
Giselle has always had a crush on her former brother-in-law, Sam, who is obviously totally off limits. However, the cover makes it crystal clear that these bounda…
‘Deliciously Wicked’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
This cover is slightly bizarre -- what do a hill, a very tall man and a girl in Victorian dress have to do with a story that begins with a chance (romantic) meeting in a chocolate factory? Not really very much. But the classic gender stereotypes have all been whipped out for this front cover, and so…
‘Sensual Confessions’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
'Sensual Confessions' tells the tale of Blade Madaris and Samira Di Meglio, two lovers whose sexual encounter was both unplanned and unwanted (at least by one of them!). The chemistry between the two is undeniable though, and both find themselves getting in deeper than they thought...
‘Happy Hour at Casa Dracula’ – Cheesy Romance Novel Covers
 
Gallery BooksWell, if this saucy cover isn’t enough to grab your attention, the *not so* original plot line certainly will. 'Happy Hour at Casa Dracula' is the first book in Marta Acosta’s fabulous ‘Casa Dracula’ series. It is the usual cocktail of ambitious and attractive young women meets dashing…
