You tired of me yet? I’m sure you are. But that’s ok, I still think you’re spiffy. Today’s column is all thanks to Sally, who sent this set of images in (Like how I threw you under the Harlequin bus there, Sally? Yeah, you’re welcome!).
First we have Wedding at King’s Convenience by Maureen Child
Is it me, or does “King’s Convenience” sound like a great name for a corner convenience store, and now I’m wondering if they got married while standing next to those rolling hot dog conveyors and the slushy CafPow machine?
But then, there’s this cover for Apuesta Segura by Maureen Child - the same book, only translated into Spanish:
Dios Mio! I’ve got one question: WHICH is his original HEAD?! Is this guy possessing of two faces? Does he have TWO COMPLETE HEADS?! Is that the barrier to their happy ending, that he is his own secret twin and she can’t figure out who is who?
WOW. That could make for some serious conflict.
What do you think happened in this story that this guy ended up with two entirely different craniums? And which do you think is better? Are either his original head – or does he have a third MYSTERY head that’s never to be revealed?
Oh, Harlequin, you guys are full of mystery and pizazz. And heads.
