Caption That Cover: Cliffhanger Edition - The Winner!

Now THAT's a cliff worth worrying about, yo. Have one last long, epic look before I announce the winners. 


Book Cover


Y'all are some funny people, yo. The entries were making me screamlaugh and scare the dogs – and any stray mountain climbers. 

And now, the honorable mentions!

Maggie Robinson: It was a bit disconcerting when the bondage elves exploded out of her thong, but Tristan soon took the hint and became a very happy camper.

Lori S: If you climb it, they will come.

Amanda: Unleash the underpants gnomes!

Fullybooked: Sebastion didn't want to make a mountain out of a molehill but he had never needed so much protection before.

O_Waite: Although he was glad to find such a sturdy handhold, he had really been expecting more crevice work.

Gail b: Ever since the collapse of The Old Man of the Mountain, the New Hampshire Department of Tourism has been wracking their brains on how to bring back rock-climbing tourism dollars to the state.

Behold “The Young Nubile Couple of the Mountain”

Live Free or….. (sigh)

Jodi: He thought he was lucky that her breasts were small and humble, so he didn't confuse them with mountains. But things were more complicated than he realised…

Special honorable mention for packing (ha) as many jokes in one sentence:

KM: Signs you may need to work on your tuck game, no. 263: the Borrowers use it for purchase

Runner Up:

Mount Never-Rest


She'll be coming 'round the mountain when she comes…


And the winner of this Caption That Cover edition is: 


Gail Leinweber: He would climb mountains to win her, then go down to keep her.


Aw, yeah! Gail, congrats! Please email me at to tell me from which bookstore you'd like a snazzy gift card.

Thank you to everyone who attempted the summit. Happy New Year!

    Yay, Gail! That one was my favorite.

    My problem, here, is that I cannot seem to figure out what part of the female body I’m looking at. I know there’s a strong suggestion that it’s the front, but…it’s not obvious, is what I’m saying. Back? Stomach? What kind of underwear is that? Why is it so high? WHY ARE THERE TREES JUTTING UP FROM HER ASS AND/OR HONEY CAVE?

    These are my questions, people. I’m feeling very confused.

    I’m certain that he’s kneeling down, kissing her back.  The black lace is the band of her bra.  As for the awkward insert, I have no explanations.

    Great contest! Cover snark is what brought me to this site years ago – and I can never get enough!

    I think he is kneeling, kissing her stomach and we see the side of her panties (which are not at all thong-style) and the bottom of her arms at the top of the picture. There is a little tiny bow showing that would be over the top of her underpants.

    I would say it’s definitely her back – although what that lingerie is supposed to be I can’t tell.  Despite the decidedly odd cover, I really enjoyed this book.

    This is fun news to return from vacation too!

    I’m with henofthewoods on how I read the image, it looks like they cropped out her arm in a weird place. I assumed if it was her back we’d see more junk in her trunk. As for the giant people imposed over the little climbers and all the rocks/foliage… My only explanation is that the industry knows we need cover snark.

    If you look at her legs, you might change your mind. I think he is kissing her tummy.

  8. 8
    Tina says:

    I don’t think those are her legs.  I think that’s her butt.

  9. 9
    DA says:

    Um, no. Among many other cues, that would be a very normal position for her arms if it were her front, and a completely bizarre/painful/possibly anatomically impossible position if it were her back.

  10. 10
    Tina says:

    If that were her front and those were her legs, she’s completely missing her hips and pelvis.  If that is her back, and that her butt, then the upper left corner is a bit of her armpit and sleeve.  Sorry, I don’t believe that’s her front but I will concede that it’s a pretty bad picture.
