Father’s Day is coming up! For that reason, this Covers of the Week, we’re spotlighting some romance covers featuring dads and their kids.
Theme: Father’s Day Covers
In honor of Father’s Day, we’ll be showcasing a selection of covers from the 1980s and 1990s that feature dads and their children.
During that era, it was very popular to have babies on romance covers. It’s clear the trend of featuring babies during the late 20th century reflected the cultural shift towards valuing family. Thus, the role of fathers in child-rearing was always seen as necessary.
Therefore, let’s appreciate the male role models in our lives and how they shaped our futures. From providing love and support to teaching important life lessons, fathers are an integral part of families.
From proud dads holding their little ones to fathers playing with their kids, these covers are sure to tug at your heartstrings. Whether it’s a classic Harlequin or a traditional Regency romance, these images capture the timeless bond between fathers and their children.
Thanks to all the fantastic dads out there. And also thanks to the authors and artists who captured the beauty of fatherhood on the covers of these romance novels.
For the week of Monday, June 12, to Sunday, June 18, 2023, our Covers of the Week celebrates Father’s Day and romance covers featuring dads and their kids.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and men filling that role in someone’s life!
