Help me choose the cover of my June release!

Hey, everyone! I need your help choosing the cover of my June release, Two Nights with His Bride. The fab team at Tule Publishing gave me several options, and I narrowed it down to two. I’d love to know your thoughts! Which one entices you more? And is there anything that stands out (in a good or bad way) that you think I should know about?

Ignore the numbers 1 and 3 on the covers. That’s just because they gave me four options; those numbers won’t be on the final cover.

Thanks so much for your help!

Option 1

Brides cover 1

Option 2

Brides cover 3


What do you think?

  1. I think that number two is the better of the two options, but what I don’t like about it is that the guy is not looking at his bride – his eyes are closed and he seems to be looking down and away for some reason and she also has her eyes closed. In number one I also don’t like the way that the groom is blurred.

  2. Definitely #2. The first cover is nice, but for me as a female reader (and I speak only for myself) a handsome guy on the cover is more eye-catching.

  3. I like the smile in option 1 but do not like that the man is so out of focus. Option 2 doesn’t show as much of the bride’s face, but it conveys more of a connection between them. So option 2.

  4. I like cover number 1. Personally, I like the fact that the groom is blurred. I don’t know why but it looks more romantic this way to me, and the female model’s smile is sweet and says more contemporary romance, if it makes sense 🙂

  5. I like Option #2. I think because they both look happy and it seems more intimate. And it doesn’t hurt that the groom is so handsome.
    Good luck with your decision. They are both great!

  6. Both covers are eye catching, but I slightly prefer number 1. I wish you could see they were holding hands a bit better, though.

  7. I think the first is very fun and flirty, and it’s something I can easily associate with the title. I also love the overall composition of that shot and the way the cover frames it.

    Side-eyeing the second one because it looks like the groom is trying to feel her up and see down her dress. “Hey there, bride. No bra, huh? Yay me. He he he.” :p

  8. I like option 1 – it’s a very happy picture with good background color and her bouquet makes for more visual interest, too. It would be even better with the groom in focus or placed differently — closer to her, perhaps? I do not like option 2 at all. It’s an unflattering picture of the bride, lacks color and pop and it doesn’t convey romance to me. He seems to be humoring her while she wipes some smudge off his cheek.

  9. LOL… doesn’t seem like we’re helping. Sorry. But I’ll give it a shot. I LOVE #1 and that would be my choice. If there was a way to make him not blurry that would be great, but even with him being blurry (which I’m guessing is intentional) that’s fine. It has the overall wedding feel, the way she’s laughing and facing forward is just almost perfect. It’s like she’s looking at her guests or girlfriends, “I’m taken now!” With #2, I would’ve picked it if he was leaning against her face, and have his eyes closed. As it is, he has his eyes closed and he’s away from her so that connection is not there and he just seems as if he’s leaning away from his bride and his focus is not really there– on her. And the placement of his hand on her boob is all wrong to me…haha. So picking #1 on this one. Good luck!

  10. I’m for option 1. And that’s because it immediately grabbed my attention. She does look happy…unfortunately the groom is blurred, but I can live with that

  11. #1 because she looks better than the 3rd one where the angle of her chin is not pleasing. (she is a beautiful woman)
