Very bony, very ethereal. I think I could take him — and I weigh lbs. Which leads me to a few questions. Is this supposed to scream SEXY to buyers? Something about the lifeless, mannequin-like look on both models is freaking me out a bit, actually. Her throat looks more like a nape. Perhaps that helps bite-marks heal quicker? Thanks so much. My family and I had a debate awhile back about which was the female and which was the male on the US Lover Eternal cover. They finally got me straightened out. That guy on the UK Lover Unbound makes me think heroin addict.
I always find it interesting that books for situations like this get different covers in the first place. I suppose the only way to know would be to poll UK inhabitants and ask them which they prefer. Or perhaps copyright issues come into play? Is the series still new after six books?!? Perhaps the marketing teams really have it right, because as a Brit, I do like the UK non-Vaselined covers better. Actually, movie posters usually are different for different countries.
Revenge of the Brotherhood
All of them are pretty much six of one, half dozen of the other IMO. Except the dozy chick on the UK Dark Lover zzzzzz and then it took me a few minutes and closing one eye then the other to even figure out where the people were in the UK Lover Eternal. Sort of a Rorshach approach? The Piatkus covers for the J. Robb books are stunning and they have done a fine job with most Roberts novels as well. Plus, UK covers are generally matte, which is much better than that annoying glossy finish on many US covers, which only gets covered in fingerprints anyway.
So is it a surprise that I like the US covers best? I think the UK covers are uniformly awful. Does anyone else think Ted Dansen was the model for Lover Enshrined? Something about this cover has screamed Cheers at me since I first saw it…. I guess I should have specified Lover Enshri ned rather than just using initials since their are two LE books in the list.
I like the color wash and the font on the US covers better, but otherwise I could go either way. The big MWAH! In a Blind Taste test, passing 15 year old daughter preferred the UK covers. Ugly models, cheesy poses. Living here for almost three years has not made me any more inclined to like their covers. The acne guy is rather disturbing — what is he doing to her neck — kissing, sucking? His lips look like the end of the Noo Noo! In general I prefer not to have a full face shot on covers. Why must you torment me with the linkage???? On another note, those UK covers are pretty scary.

Six months after the events of Tangled , Rapunzel is settling into life in the kingdom of Corona but is unable to enjoy her life with the constant protection of her father's guards. When she and her lady-in-waiting, Cassandra, sneak out of the castle, they come upon some magical black rock spikes that magically bring back her long blonde hair which is now indestructible, so Rapunzel has to hide it from everyone, especially her parents.
Eventually, Eugene, Maximus, and Pascal find out about the hair as well, but Rapunzel decides not to tell Eugene about how she got her hair back because Cassandra doesn't trust him , a decision which he hardly agrees with. Rapunzel manages to hide her hair from her parents but becomes very nervous because of her coronation day.
To complicate matters, a female rogue, Lady Caine, appears at Rapunzel's coronation with a hatred of King Frederic who had taken away her father a long time ago. With no other choice, Rapunzel reveals her new foot long hair and, with her friends' help, defeats the thugs. Later, that night, Rapunzel admits to her father that she had snuck out of the castle but doesn't mention anything about Cassandra helping her , so King Frederic has no other choice, but to forbid Rapunzel from leaving the walls of Corona.
Rapunzel feels trapped again just like in her old tower , but with her mother's encouragement, she decides to take her relationship and role in Corona one day at a time. A little while later, a mysterious individual comes across the site of the magical flower that cured Rapunzel's mother and was the original source of her magical long blonde hair.

Eugene follows them, but things don't go quite as planned: they find Varian, a year-old alchemist who agrees to help uncover the mystery of Rapunzel's hair.
However, Varian had built some underground machines which run out of control and destroy the village. Luckily, no one is hurt and the test shows some important facts about Rapunzel's hair: it's completely indestructible and doesn't have any healing powers any more, but now can completely cover somebody and protect them. As they leave, Rapunzel begins telling Eugene about the events of the night when her hair grew back which Eugene promises to keep secret and the black rocks slowly start to grow back and multiply.

Eventually, she inspires Monty to participate at the Gopher Festival Tournament, but during the race she has to rescue him from a waterfall, blowing her disguise.

Meanwhile, Rapunzel prepares for her royal portrait to be painted by the revered Italian painter Giovanni.
