This page provides a few examples of romance novel book covers. The covers range all across the board and encompass a number of sub-genres. The covers are very important because they alone determine whether someone is going to pick the book up and investigate further, if they’re going to click on the link and read the blurb. A cover can make or break a book. There is an older song about a picture painting a thousand words, which is very true for trying to sell books. You only get one chance to make a good first impression, which is why a good publisher has a skilled art staff that can create a cover to grab your attention and convey a snapshot of the story contained inside the covers of the book. The following covers are not in any particular order, are not meant to convey any theme. They are simply a random collection of covers that looked good.
