Do blondes have more fun?

That's an interesting question, considering Britt, my heroine in MARRIAGE: FOR BUSINESS OR PLEASURE? has undergone a radical hair dye job for the US cover (out in Feb 2010.)

In the book, Britt is quite clearly a redhead. Nick, the hero, has nicknamed her Red since they were teenagers. And that is clearly depicted on the UK cover.

Now don't get me wrong, I love this US cover, it's gorgeous!

But why the hair colour change?

Hmm...guess it must be true. In the States, blondes do have more fun. :)

That sure is strange. I know it's not terribly unusual in single title covers, but I haven't thought of it being done on the Harlequins. Huh. You didn't say so, but perhaps it's a big screwup. If it's on purpose, ah, well, hmm. Well, perhaps no one will notice because they're all looking at the guy. ;)

That's one thing that bothers me,
it so clearly tells me in the text
that the H or H has hair a certain
color.The cover tells me something
else! Someone obviously hasn't read
the descriptions as they should!
