The 25 Most Ridiculous Romance Novel Covers

5. The Bull Rider's Christmas Baby (2010)

Author: Laura Altom
Publisher: Harlequin
Promotional synopsis: "Cash Buckhorn never thought he'd see Dr. Wren Barnes again, outside of the occasional fantasy anyway. He certainly didn't expect her to appear unannounced on his front porch, six months pregnant with his child."

We think the lesson here is "you can't have it all." You want a book about a bull rider? OK, fair, we can see cowboys as romantic. Bull rider's baby? Weird. Particularly in the context of romance, but everyone wants different things. But, throw Christmas in there and the whole thing becomes rather absurd, don't you think? Even a great cowboy name like "Cash Buckhorn" can't anchor this fantasy even just a little bit in reality.
