Under the guise of 'research', I'd be interested to see if my initial response was just me being a grouch and saying "bah, humbug," for the sake of it so here are three covers, all for the same book (click on them to enlarge if you need to) used with kind permission from the author - thanks Liz.
"Bag: packed. Flight: booked. Soon I'll be in Rome and experiencing life in a foreign language! Watch this space...
Newly single Sarah Gratton is determined to enjoy her holiday—could a just-for-fun romance with dark-eyed Matteo di Serrone be the answer? This Italian count is ideal flirting material—if Sarah's brave enough to make a move!
Well, she might not be—but luckily Matteo is! Matteo decides to keep this mysterious woman close—no hardship at all, given their spine-tingling awareness of each other...
It's like something out of a fairy tale—until Sarah realizes she's made the most rookie mistake of all: falling in love with her holiday fling..."
Which of the three do you like the most and what is it that that you like about it? Also, which do you think represents the book and genre the best?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts so don't go holding back on me...
