I love this cover! The model is HOT, the rain gives an ambiance and a mood--the motorcycle and darkness add to the mood, lol. Love the tattoos and the sexy font. I'll admit that I noticed the girl very last...lol
Fiona Jayde has done all of the stock covers for the Decadent Publishing Edge Erotica series and she outdid herself with them! This is a drool-worthy Jimmy Thomas cover at its best!
I'd know Jimmy anywhere . Like it better w/o the girl - clutters up the picture, imho, and takes away from the background. Could just be me.
I like the artwork a lot, but my problem is that her position looks supremely uncomfortable, and if he's supposed to be riding the bike and not just sitting on it (his head-forward position suggests movement) it just gets ludicrous. My button-of-logical-possiblity breaks at that point.I do like the color scheme. I like the typefaces too but they are SO cramped. I'd give them just a bit more air, it's kind of a blob of type down thee.
I found this cover confusing. First I saw a smiling man on a motorbike. Then I noticed the girl's head and had to examine the picture more closely to work out where she was etc. After that, I had to peer at the font. I thought it said "sisters and bikes" (mybe I'm dsylexia). The "T" in Unwanted and Mate threw me. These suggest a religious theme. Finally, I saw the man's tattoo. Never noticed the rain. If I had to guess the genre, I would have had to pass. Probably understandable as it's not something I would buy.
Obviously romance. The only thing I' d do differently to tie in the paranormal element is have a wolf or something in the background that reflects the subject and title better. I do like this cover and it doesn't appear the bike is moving so it doesn't bother me that she's posed in this manner..
