Theme: Romance Covers Featuring Halloween Costumes
Throughout October, Covers of the Week will display romances with Halloween-inspired themes. This week, the covers feature the heroes and heroines dressed in costumes. Some of these are a riot! As always, Regency romances are a reliable choice for seasonal thematic elements. We also discovered a couple of fantastic contemporary covers.
Halloween costumes play a crucial part in establishing the festive ambiance of this eerie holiday. They allow individuals to unleash inventiveness and showcase their individuality in exceptional and imaginative fashions.
Dressing up in a costume offers a unique chance, once a year, to become someone or something completely different from your usual self. This could range from spooky creatures to beloved characters from films, TV shows, or books.
Additionally, creative and humorous costumes are always a hit, allowing individuals to showcase their wit and sense of humor.
This week’s Covers of the Week focuses on romance novels with the protagonists dressed in costumes just in time for Halloween.
Halloween Costume Covers
In the cover for Foul Play, a Harlequin Intrigue romantic suspense, the hero is dressed in a gorilla suit (see the head in the lower right corner?). The heroine is dressed as Cat Woman, wearing a tight black outfit, kitty ears, an eye mask, and a pouty puss expression.
The Reluctant Husband‘s sweet-looking Regency cover pairs a hero and heroine dancing and dressed in medieval clothing.
Halloween Honeymoon‘s story about a charity ball made an excellent opportunity for this cover by Michael McGovern, with a heroine dressed as a bride and the hero costumed as a… pirate? It’s all good. We love pirates and adore this cover.
Haunted Hearts is the most adorable cover yet. This Regency romance features jack-o-lanterns, a hero dressed in yellow and orange colors, and a heroine as an orange cat/pumpkin.
