Romance novel covers, like them or not, inspire conversation. In this case, the conversation might go something like this:
Attacker: What the hell is up with this cover?
Defender: Um...He’s hungry? He fell asleep on her face? He’s a lamprey eel?
Attacker: She doesn’t look like she wants him to touch her—see how her body is turned away from his?
Defender: She is denying it—even to herself—but she cannot resist his love.
Attacker: I think she’s having a heart attack. See how he’s palpitating her chest?
Defender: You know, I think I would like an e-reader after all.
