Legendary artist Robert McGinnis created so many dazzling romance covers here’s a Covers of the Week to highlight a few more of his artwork.
Sweet Savage Flame believes it’s essential to keep the memory of these skilled cover illustrators and their works alive. These 21 names are among the best romance cover artists to have designed clinch covers.
So… Johanna Lindsey’s Tender Is the Storm. If you’re familiar with your romance history, then you must know of this book, even if you haven’t read it. The cover is the infamous one designed by Robert McGinnis with the naked hero standing tall as the heroine kneels before him, her ample breasts pressed firmly against his–er…dongle. 3 stars
It’s fair to compare So Speaks the Heart (which should be subtitled: Medieval Norman Psychopath Falls for French Co-Dependent and Fellow Anger Management Classmate) to another of Johanna Lindsey’s works, A Pirate’s Love, which had a similar captor/captive trope. 4 stars
