Happy 70th Birthday to Harlequin.
I loved looking at all the covers that were posted on this blog last week to celebrate 70 years of Harlequin (and 110 years of Mills & Boon) and I must admit I then got a little side-tracked scrolling through my own. I have been published for 15 years this year and including anthologies, special editions and foreign translations there have been almost too many covers to count but I thought I’d share some of my favourites.
The Consultant’s Temptation has to be one – my first book! IMO it does look a little old-fashioned now, it was 2004!
This is the Australian cover style of The Playboy Firefighter’s Proposal from 2009 and the updated 2014 US version. You’re welcome!
Another North American cover from 2014. A Doctor By Day is one of my all-time favourites as it captures the characters and the story so well.
And also out now in Australia, Hero By Nature, (a re-release of two books from 2011 and 2014)
I can’t go past my favourite ebook cover and a contender for my favourite cover ever, Falling for the Single Dad!
For something a bit different – Tempted & Tamed is a mini-series, three books about the three Anderson sisters – Scarlett, Ruby and Rose.
I couldn’t choose a favourite English language cover so I picked a few Australian, UK and American ones!
You can find links to these books on my website.
And, finally, my favourite foreign cover (print version) – Breaking Her No Dates Rule – thank you Norway!
Harlequin Scandinavia (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) are getting in on the celebrations too – it’s their 40th birthday this year – and I also have a book out to celebrate that!
I would love to know if you have a favourite out of these covers or a favourite style.
Do you prefer to see the hero or heroine on the cover? Or the hero and heroine together? Or children if they feature in the story?
Happy Reading, Emily x
