I knew when I first saw this that it was the cover to begin this blog with. It probably influenced me to write the blog in the first place. I mean, it's just sooooo perfect. There's the pigs, the come-hither look on the mostly naked hunk, the hand in the process of removing the blanket (and uncovering more of the naked hunk?), the little fairie in the corner (the book is part of a series called "Faerie Tale Romance"), and oh, yeah, did I mention the PIGS?!?
Apparently this book is a take off on classic tale of the Three Little Pigs. Benjamin Wolfe's family is run out of Piggville, TX in his youth, only to return and, in revenge, attempt to seduce the three Pigg sisters (I swear, you can't make this shit up!). As the jacket says, "(h)e'd drag their family name through the mud, and see to it that, whether their homes were made of straw, sticks or brick, the sisters would ultimately be forced out of town."
Is there such a thing as driving a point into the ground and then stomping on it? Yes. Yes there is. Or, I suppose, have it trampled by pigs.
UPDATE: I figure there might be some of you out there that, for some strange and twisted reason of your own best not gone into here, would like to purchase a book I showcase. I have decided to provide you a link to my all-time favorite stie for author and book information, www.fantasticfiction.co.uk for each book I show. Enjoy! http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/j/linda-jones/big-bad-wolf.htm
(p.s. This book has a different title and, sadly, a different cover for the British version. Maybe the Brits have some taste?)
