Thank you so much for your fascinating and insightful comments on the cover of Night Jasmine.
Frankly, I get a lot more out of the picture now than I did before. I love the interplay that some found between title and picture, perceiving the lady on the cover as weighing the moral dilemma of the titular temptation. And I’m very intrigued by Tamar’s point that the same reserve that marks out this lady as a potential wallflower in a gentleman would be called “enigmatic” and perceived as dashing. After all, think about how many Regency heroes we know spend their lives propping up mantelpieces and staring sardonically into the crowd, thus garnering whispered compliments and feminine flutters without ever having to utter a word.
But I digress. Again.
The randomly chosen winner for this week’s web contest is… Ariana. Congrats, Ariana!
There are still three more ARCs to go after this, so stay tuned!
