In my contest detail form I gave some ideas of what I wanted, within the form there were other details that this designer, Radio Designs, picked up on and incorporated into the design. others picked up on this also but the winning design hit the mark.

An Exotic Heir
Meredith Bond's books straddle that beautiful line between historical romance and fantasy. An award-winning author, she writes fun traditional Regency romances, medieval Arthurian romances, and Regency romances with a touch of magic. Known for her characters “who slip readily into one’s heart,” Meredith loves to take her readers on a journey they won't soon forget.
Weaving a web of revenge can be satisfying, but dangerous to your heart.
London society is shallow and cruel, sending Cassandra Renwick running to Calcutta, the exotic seat of the British Raj. It’s a fascinating place filled with interesting sights – including the dark and mysterious Julian Ritchie. But she never thought that an even greater heartbreak could be here in this alien and enchanting land.
Julian has always been discriminated against for being only half English. Embittered, he plots an intricate plan for vengeance with the innocent and lovely Cassandra as his pawn. But he soon finds that payback can be painful for the avenger as well when the threads of revenge unwittingly turn into the silken bonds of love.

Book cover type
It's very simple a with just that one pop of color.
A very elegant cover with just one element in a pretty background with popping colors.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
It could have a man fully dressed in period (Regency) clothing. There could also be a woman on it, but that's not necessary. It could also just be something inanimate (see the attached Quinn cover) The book takes place in Calcutta, India during the Raj, so something that inspires that idea. This is the first book in a series, so I'll need three more covers after this for the other books and they'll all need to have similar design elements even though the other books are all set in London.
What to avoid
No nudity, please.
This is the cover I made for the box set of the series.
