Royal Book Cover of the Month – January 2011

This month's new royal book covers feature several of the usual images of headless women (see The Darling Strumpet for an example). One cover easily stands out from the unimaginative pack:

Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray is a novel about Princess Selene, daughter of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony, who was sent to Rome to live after her parents' deaths. The cover is beautiful, tasteful, and appealing.

That's my opinion — what's yours? Do you like this cover? Do you prefer the cover of The Darling Strumpet?
