Highlander Cover

I have been on a bit of a cover art kick recently.  I just have to share this one.  It fascinates me.

Firstly, I like it a lot. I like it enough to overlook a hint of highlander mullet.

Secondly, this is an exact gender-reversal of a very common cover trope. She is groping him. He seems cooperative enough, unlike the common trope where the woman was often ambivalent or reluctant looking. But the general tone of exposing the boobage (male in this case) to full view seemed to be the same.

Even better, the heroine works for "Night Moon Publishers" and is dealing with a model who seems to be insane and consider he really is a 19th century highlander.  That's priceless.

Yes, I bought it.
