We’re back in Wonderland, folks – a trip through Heather Osborn’s romance novel collection. Heather’s old romance and romance author collection is just… wow. This is the second of a three-part tour of her collection. Get some popcorn and have a look at the majesty. Some of these covers are so excellent, we’ve snarked them before – but they’re worth revisiting because… well, LOOK at them!
Name of a Shadow by Ann Maxwell aka Elizabeth Lowell, April, 1980. Look at that crazy art! The crystal gem harp, the flowy hair, the weird spiky plants. Man, I love old books.
The Jaws of Menx by Ann Maxwell aka Elizabeth Lowell, September 1981. The craziest cover art of them all. I don’t even know what’s happening here, but I think it involves volcanoes and sexy princesses.
Hot Touch by Deborah Smith, Loveswept, October 1989. This is seriously my favorite Loveswept. So good! It features a animal trainer heroine who can talk psychically with animals, and a veterinarian hero who runs a wildlife rescue. And despite what the cover implies, I don’t remember him: a) being 45, b) sporting an amazing mullet, and c) wearing cable knit sweaters in the Louisiana Bayou.
The Grand Finale by Janet Evanovich, May 1988. Anna Nicole Smith marries Bo Duke! At least, that would be what the cover implies.
Manhunt by Janet Evanovich, January 1989. Do you see how long this man’s forearm is? That can’t be right.
Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich, April 1992. Despite appearances, this book does not star Jasmine Guy as the heroine, nor is she black, to the best of my knowledge.
Stay tuned for more trips to the awesomeness that is Heather’s bookshelves next week!
