What an horribly bad cover. I wonder if the artist/publisher was afraid that we just might miss the topic of the book so they decided to make it glaringly clear incase we don’t get the obvious.
Dear publisher, I get that this is a gay regency romance but the bulge down the shirtless guys pants is just plain scary. Thankfully this man is gay because what women would not run screaming from Mr. Monster Ball guy. A phallic shape portray an aroused male, a cantaloupe suggests ball cancer.
And what self respecting gay guy sports a mullet? Looking at the pouty expression on mullet guy, I image the dialogue.
Oh Jim, you better get that checked out real soon. I had an uncle once who died from a horrible wasting disease after his boys swelled up like that.
