I've been looking at a lot more romance novels these days, in preparation for our trip to RWA. One thing is certain: I'm not sure we can call them bodice-rippers anymore.

It's not just one genre that's departing from tradition here. You see it in contemporaries,


and paranormals.

Um. Am I the only one blushing? These covers are HOT, and women are not the ones showing the skin.

Anyone else noticing this trend? What do you think of the departure from the traditional "clinch" cover? Do you have a favorite romance cover?
