The great cover...up!

Take a look at the cover for PURCHASED FOR PLEASURE on your right.
In the UK version currently on the shelves, Navy SEAL Tyler James is gorgeous, with the broad (bare!) chest I credited him with.
And SEALs have short back and sides.
And Ty is 6 ft 4".
And in his 30s.
Now take a look at the Aussie cover for the same book(out here in December.)
Is it just me or do these two look like a couple of teenagers? As for that hair...
I'm not going to say anymore.
I'll leave the comments up to you!
(For Aussie readers, this is one of my favourite books of all time so don't let the cover fool you...It really is a very mature story!!)

Oh I feel like a judge from DWTS!! It is my pet hate when covers don;t match the author's characters. I like the UK one best from your description!!

Covers are such an individual thing, aren't they?
A bit like the stories within them, I guess :)

Hi Nic,
Actually, as I've told you privately, he reminds me of Scott Baio. I'd pick the book up just for that! But as a navy seal, er no, he doesn't look the part. Too long hair and too young!
