Theme: Women on Top
With all the variety of poses for romance covers, the rarest to spot is the woman on top of the hero. Clinch covers show couples embracing in various positions. Standing up, laying down, in bed, on the floor, on the seashore… Every situation imaginable has been pictured on the covers of romance books.
But seeing the heroine in a dominant position or laying on top of the hero is hard to find. Believe us, we searched and searched.
And indeed, we were fortunate to come upon a selection of covers where the exception is the rule.
The heroines in these romances are running the show! For the week of Monday, January 9, 2023, to Sunday, January 15, 2023, this Covers of the Week displays an assortment of covers featuring the women laying on top of their heroes.
