It seems the Desire line has had a makeover Down Under. The interesting thing is that it’s just the Desire line and only the Desire line. If I pretend to be intelligent, I could probably draw a connection between the makeover and the switch from Silhouette Desire to Harlequin Desire. Anyway, have a peek at the before and after:
What do you think? I’m not going to lie. My first reaction was “Urgh!” but that was probably more reflection on my resistance to change than anything else. I can see where the marketing gurus were going with it. It does look a lot cleaner, not as busy - less is more. The swirl at the top is a clever representation of the trademark rose.
I think it’s growing on me.
To be fair, it is just a graphic. I'm sure it's more impressive in the "flesh". There's a lot of competition out there. It has to be eye catching to catch the eyes.
When it comes down to it, as long as I have an author, a title and a blurb with a cracking emotional story inside I’m good.
What do you think about the new covers? And feel free to love them or loathe them because someone needs to be sure how they feel about them.
