|The apparently bodice-ripping Hebrew translation of Mayhem and Miranda|
Its sequel, The Captain's Inheritance, takes place about three months later. In the meantime the darling little girl has aged by five years or so and bleached her hair.
The ebook cover, though, is perfect. I was browsing in a thrift shop in England when I found a print of an artillery officer of the British Army in the Napoleonic era. That's what Captain Ingram is. My Regency ebook publisher used it, so this is just right.

But it's the cover art for my Daisy Dalrymple series that has had the most bizarre personality shifts.
|The original cover of |
the first Daisy
|The cartoonish US |
|And the UK edition|
And then there's the cover for the Polish translation. Cute and eye-catching, but somewhat inaccurate as far as the story's concerned:
|The Polish cover|
|The Polish box-set featuring book three: |
Requiem for a Mezzo
The audio version thinks it was a blonde in a black dress (below left).
My mother, for one, kept switching between text and cover of the first one, thoroughly confused because it's actually a blonde in a blue dress.
So, don't ask a (traditionally published) author why the cover doesn't fit the book. It's usually not his/her fault!
