She’s wanton to pose for a cover

October 20, 2008

fashion-harlequin-wanton-160.jpgBlog Guy, my dream is to be a book cover model for Harlequin historical romances. But if you have to bring your own wardrobe, I don’t know where to get the right stuff. Can you help?

Sure. I know about this because my sister does the same thing. She modeled for the covers of such historical romance classics as “Taming of the Pioneer Wagon Girl,” “Donner Party Seductress” and “Harlot at the OK Corral.”

One good place to go for historical romance cover outfits is fashion shows in Ukraine, as you can see by this creation below. You will soon find it on the cover of “The Sweaty Buccaneer’s Veiled Temptress.”

This Halloween, go as a blog network member

Nothing original here. Both Brendan and Tan owe lots to Cornell Woolrich.
