9 Romance Book Covers That Don’t Look Like Romance Books


When I first thought of making this list, I figured it’d be super easy to come up with at least 20 book covers for romance books that don’t look like romance books.

Holy crap, I was wrong. Sure the first few were easy; they were the reason I thought of this list. But the rest? I had to dig.

I didn’t want to put just any old boring cover for a less-than-stellar book on the list. I wanted to put up books that are actually GOOD.

And what was I looking for in a cover that doesn’t look like a romance book? No naked people, no people kissing, no flowery decorations, no cover models looking off in the distance for a mortal beloved.

These 9 romance books with covers that don’t really look like typical romance books are actually good!
