I’m taking a look at another paranormal romance now, the ubiquitous moon already indicates that we are dealing with werewolves here. But this time the English cover is the more attractive one. I suppose you could argue against this but I consider a damsel with big breasts less appealing than a stud. The romance genre in Germany used to have covers like this one for years and it seems only the recent rise of vampires, demons and weres has put an end to that. Unfortunately Thompson’s book must have either come out earlier than all the others or Bastei Lübbe is more old fashioned than the other publishers and won’t let go of the tradition of using the corniest covers possible.
Once more the titles have been changed dramatically.
They turned the three titles
- The Dark One
- The Untamed One
- The Cursed One
- Versuchung der Finsternis (Temptation of Darkness)
- Süsser Rausch der Finsternis (Sweet Thrill of Darkness)
- Lockruf der Finsternis (Lure of the Darkness)
in accordance with the tacky cover images.
