Do you find you are drawn to erotica and romance covers that leave more or less to the imagination?
I certainly find clever covers like that pictured above for Inspector Grape and the Curious Case of the Killer Corset by Nobilis Reed more appealing than ones that fall into clichéd displays of body parts or damsels in distress wrapped in the arms of some Fabio bookcover wannabe. I’ve posted on fewer than ten cool book covers thus far, and here I am including another erotica cover. Like all great book designs, the irresistible elements override the small part of readers that may harbor qualms over reading such literature.
From the old-fashioned font with the picture of the proper-looking inspector up top, to the sepia tone of the photograph, this cover entices. Besides, what can be more inviting than the promise of some killer corset sex action? Mostly, the cover succeeds due to the promise of release. What sort of shenanigans will transpire once that tightly laced corset comes off?
Book Description Via Amazon
The Elder Miss Trunkle is dead, killed by a freak corset accident. Or was she? The Younger Miss Trunkle stands to inherit a sizable estate, and Inspector Grape is suspicious. The game is a foot! Or…more likely some other body part.
Are you interested enough to put it on your wish list? I’ve downloaded the book and am set to give it a quick read this coming weekend. When I contacted the author about featuring his cover, he admitted Inspector Grape is one of his weirder ones, so I’ve been forewarned. I’m also looking forward to reading his humorous approach. In addition to erotica, Nobilis Reed also writes science fiction and fantasy.
