The Ongoing Cover Rag

Well, this isn't actually a rag. I like this cover, on the whole. My first reaction was that I couldn't decide whether he looked like Jon Stewart--or a homeless person. And what is with her dress? It's too big and it kind of looks like a cheap evening dress. In the middle of the afternoon in a tree-shaded park? Maybe they're both homeless...

But then, well, I sent it to my dear friend Susan Crosby She liked it and told me why. That the heroine looks adorable and the hero actually kind of looks like Harry Connick, Jr.--whom Susan really likes a lot. And then I realized she is adorable. And she looks a little like Kate Hudson, who was my image of her. And he's...not so bad. I mean, he looks like a grown man instead of somebody's shaved-chest boy toy. And he has amazing, big hands.

I really like big hands on a man.

So now, I'm good with it. I even like it. And I think it's perfectly targeted for the SSE reader--meaning it's romantic and sweetly emotional.

You think?

Jon Stewart is hot! (He was #1 on my sexy man list on the blog. ) And in a leather jacket, with longer hair. Oh yeah, baby. (g)

Sheesh, it's taken me a long time to reply to this. Rinda, I agree. Jon Stewart *is* hot. But, you know, funny hot. This hero is not funny. Well, maybe on occasion...
