Harlequin/Silhouette Book Covers

If you like Harlequins/Silhouette this post is for you.

My mom came up and gave me some books. That is nothing new. She does this every time she visits me. This time she gave mostly Harlequins/Silhouette. And of those they are old school. OK from the late eighties and nineties. At first I thought they were the books that I read when I was in my twenties. I looked again and they are mostly from the local used bookstore. The covers are the best part. And the sad thing is out of all the books that I got, I cannot use any for the Harlequin/Silhouette Challenge. Here are a select few. The covers below go from 1979-1997.

Even though this one is not a Harlequin/Silhouette. It still is a romance. Look at that cover. Talk about racy. This cover was printed in 1992. I think some of the covers of today are much tamer. Even the erotica covers seem a little tame then this one. I just love it. This is my favorite cover of all the books that I got from my mom. All I can think of when I see this cover is Ride 'em Cowboy. Is that bad or what?

If you want to see the rest of the books that I got, you can visit my shelf on Shelfari, Pabast Shelf Once you get there, click on own and you can see the books.

Happy Reading

I love the covers and I have many of these books in my basement. I should go down and check them out.

The covers are too funny -- we've come along way in cover art!

Yvonne-I think that would be fun to explore all the old books that you have in your basement.

Beth F-Thank goodness. I think the covers of today are better, well some are.

Tena-Yes, they are. You gotta love the classics.

My library has a ton of these in the paperback swap lol. Not sure if it's because they're old or because they look old but they never do seem to leave!
