Oh my, that's an odd cover.   The look on his face and the fact that she's kissing him while he's got an aimed gun in his hand just doesn't make sense.  Maybe he's got that funny look because she's about to have her hand down his pants and he's thinking "You're thinking about that at a time like this?". Here's a link to a close-up: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/0505523205/ref=dp_otherviews_0?ie=UTF8&s=books&img=0 .

LOL Have you seen the related book, Bushwacked Groom? Here's the close-up: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/0505525887/ref=dp_image_text_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books   "Have you learned your lesson yet?  You wouldn't take off your shirt, so I shot it off.  Do you really want me to shoot your pants off?  Oh, and quit smirking or I'll shoot that off as well."

(edit for stupid spelling mistake)

Very funny.  I wonder if there are anymore to the series, like Bushwacked Mother-In-Law?  Or Bushwacked Usher?  LOL

 

By the way,   What does(Wink and a Kiss book 2) mean?

That is one suspiciously well-groomed brow, given the plot synopsis!  The Metrosexual Scot maybe?

In a time when the male species was extinct, she was a valued man-maker. She had created some of the best prototypes around - from Stud-Muffin-Stuart to the ever popular Hunka-Hunka-Burning-Love_Leroy model.

I think this series may be for me after all!  LOL

And people say they're embarrassed to tote around the old school clinch covers! I wouldn't be caught dead with these. :P

Is it just me, or does the guy in the first one look kind of like Fonzie?

"Aaaayyyyyyy, get your hand off my belt"

Can't quite figure what's going on in this one -- some serious bad breath issues?

Ewwwww Willa!  That's just all kinds of wrong. The look on his face is nothing short of smarmy.  Ick.  I was just about to go to bed, too.  Now I'm going to be picturing Mr. Smarmy.  He better not show up in any of my dreams!  Double ewwwww.

I've seen that expression on my dog's face when he's getting ready to bite my nose.  It definitely explains the head turn, but she better watch out for her ears!

He looks kind of like the guy (guys) from "Bewitched," who I always thought the most unattractive dude(s) I ever saw, even at the tender age of 6.

Willa,

Her meeting with Luke Major immediately afterward was a distinct letdown....

I know just how she feels!
