Book Twins…Separated at Birth!

I was looking through the covers for some of the digital review copies being offered by publishers and I came across two that were eerily similar…fraternal book twins, shall we say!

The talents of legendary marksman Gregor “Arrow” MacGregor are crucial now, as Bruce moves to reclaim his Scottish holdings. Gregor is considered the most handsome man in Scotland, and his fame as an archer is rivaled only by his reputation with the lasses as a heartbreaker. But when his infamous face is exposed during a covert mission, Gregor is forced to lay low. He returns home only to find a new battle waiting: a daring game of seduction involving his now very grown up and very desirable ward, Cate of Lochmaben.

A born fighter, Cate was clinging to life when Gregor rescued her after a vicious English raid on her village left her mother dead. But five years later, the once scrappy orphan Gregor took under his protection has become a woman. Brave, strong, and skilled in warfare, Cate is determined to lay claim to the warrior who refuses to be trapped. The heat in his eyes tells her she has his attention . . . and his desire. But will Gregor allow his heart to surrender before danger finds them, and the truth of Cate’s identity is revealed?

The cover for The Arrow by Monica McCarty – part of the awesome Highland Guard historical romance series by the way – looks very much like the cover for Knight Avenged by Coreene Callahan – part of the Circle of Seven series that I have been dying to start!

Alone in a world on the brink of war…two unlikely allies will discover a love greater than time.

Exiled from her home, powerful oracle Cosmina Cordei holds the key to uniting those protecting mankind from evil. But just as she makes her way into the holy city to perform an ancient rite, the enemy closes in for the kill.

Drawn by a destiny he won’t accept…elite assassin, Henrik Lazar, detests the mystical curse handed down by his mother. But when the sorcery in his blood is activated and past pain comes back to haunt him, his new abilities come into play and he must learn to control them.

Rescued by Henrik in the heat of battle, Cosmina must decide whether to trust the assassin who loathes the goddess she serves or face certain death on her own. Forced into an untenable position, Henrik is left with a terrible choice—protect the magical Order he despises, or deny destiny and lose the woman he loves forever.

Of course, both covers could have been inspired by the Arrow (television show starring Stephen Amell) and who could blame the cover artists for the illustrative shout-out! I sure don’t! 😉

Spy any other “separated at birth” covers recently?

    • Thank you! I love hearing that readers are actually finding it worthwhile. I’ve been trying to update as often as I can so I really appreciate hearing that it’s helpful. 🙂

      I’ve been making my way through by TBR list and I can’t wait to read KNIGHT AVENGED…the blurb was very intriguing.

      Thanks again for stopping by!
