Romance novels must have steamy moments right from the time readers lay their eyes on it. The covers are important because that is what attracts people and catch their interests.
According to writer Lorraine Heath, who was interviewed by Cosmopolitan back in February, romance novel covers are almost the lifeblood of the genre. “Romance readers do base a lot on the covers. That’s the first thing that they look for… I’ve seen readers post that they’ve picked up books simply because they wanted the cover that was on the book,” she shared. “It needs to be a little provocative. It’s also helpful if it tries to capture the mood of the story.”
Kathleen Kamphausen recreated some of the most passionate front covers and they’re hilarious.
