Welcome back to Cover Awe, where we look at some eye-catching covers!

Nobody's Princess by Erica Ridley.  A historical romance cover with a black couple.  The man is facing us and is wearing a burgundy coat and brown pants.  We see the woman's profile instead of her looking upright and she is wearing a pink petal dress.  Both have sharp cheekbones and are very beautiful.

One is wearing baggy blue jeans and the other is wearing skinny, ripped black jeans.  One has a red roller skate and the other has a brown roller skate.  Their roses are intertwined as white and pink flowers wrap around their feet.

Maya: Cute

Amanda: I say “so cute cute soup” just like Penny from Happy endings all the time and no one understands me.

Sneezed: I love that cover!!!!

I can’t get over the twinning and the awkward tail trying to hold hands.

Sarah: This is absolutely adorable and I love how much it communicates with one look.

This bad luck by Kalynn Byron.  Two young black women in a brown garden, with branches and thorns surrounding them.  A woman has glasses, is wearing a purple sweater and jeans, with light purple magic on her fingertips.  The other has white hair pulled back in a pony tail and is behind the first woman.  They are holding hands.

Carrie: And the way the faces are framed by the branches.

There is so much going on, and so you love it all! Especially the love-and-make-it-together chemistry of the two characters!
