Cover Trend: Animals Over Your Shoulder

We’ve all heard of backseat drivers, but the authors of recent and upcoming paranormal releases are taking it to the extreme by introducing some wild animals into the mix. Peeking over the shoulders of romance characters are tigers and lions and bears. But that’s not all. On these covers we also found a bat, owl and even a dog. And for more exotic fare, it seems like dragons, unicorns and vampire bats are all the rage. While these animals do generally bring some danger to their story, most of the beasts pictured are either the shifter form of a hero or heroine or a helpful guardian. So breathe easy as you scroll through this newest cover trend.
