While we're on the topic of Harlequin being awesome, they've just revealed the Australian cover for THE LOST PRINCE,
little Ethan... grown-up-and-sexy Ethan's spin-off story in The Iron Fey series.
While this one covers up his chest, I think I actually like it better. His eyes look less creepy compared to the US one and I like the focus on the side of his face, with the hint of the design on his chest.
What about you?!
Who else is excited to read The Lost Prince??
