they’re new to me, too!

So a week or so ago, while I was searching for foreign copy covers of my Harlequin Desires to include in my Fans of Heidi Betts Facebook book giveaway, I ran across a bunch of other foreign release covers even I didn’t know about! :may11

(Love these new covers for the “Chicks with Sticks” series…maybe even more than the originals! :may2 )

(Look!  Reid & Juliet have heads! :may35 )

(I have no idea what this is; I’ve never thought any of my Desires was worthy of a corset cover, but I still love it!  Two versions, too—pink & black.  Ooh-la-la.)

What do you think?  Which of these covers do you think are even better than the original North American Harlequin Desire versions…& which do you think aren’t nearly as good? :may8

    Love the Chicks with Sticks ones. And the Zakazany owoc one (love a man’s back like that) The only one I don’t like better is the Runaway Bride one. It’s not like I pictured the h/h at all. For some reason it just doesn’t do anything more for me. I guess I liked the mystique of the US edition better.

      That’s my fave, too! I’ve always wished I’d get a Desire cover with the h/h half naked rolling around in the sheets. They used to do really sexy ones, but I guess I missed that boat. :May37

      I love the “Chicks with Sticks” ones, too. Apparently, they’re very popular in Turkey; I get mail & see posts about them all the time. :may14

      I also agree with you totally about the RUNAWAY BRIDE cover. I like the one with the faces visible…it’s a very nice cover. But given the h/h & the situation they’re in, they look a little too happy. Definitely a better idea to cut them off at the neck; or at the nose, I guess. :mat27

        They look “awkward” the more I look at it. It definitely looks posed instead of being caught by the camera like some of the others.

          Well, Reid & Juliet were in a situation that wasn’t much to smile about. And she was running *away* from her wedding, not running with the hero. That was my basic problem with the cover to begin with, even tho without that background in your head, it’s a really pretty cover. :may19

      It’s so much fun to see the covers other countries put on their reprints. Sometimes I’m glad I got my original US versions, but sometimes I wish I’d gotten the foreign ones in a format I could read! :may3

    I definitely love the one with the man’s back :may18
    And the corset ones are also great. I wonder which book they’re for :may35

    • Heidi says:

      That’s one of my favorites, too!

      And I like the corset one…pink or black. I don’t know that any of my Desires were corset-like, but that doesn’t mean I’m not happy to be in the collection. :mat27

      If I had copies of these, I could look at the blurbs to figure out which stories they belong to. I can’t usually read the actual blurb, but the hero’s & heroine’s name pop out enough for me to connect the dots. :may20
