Haunted Hearts

Nothing is more fabulous than running from a gothic castle wearing a billowing ivory silk nightgown. I had this realization after scrolling through a billion pages of My Love-Haunted Heart, a blog devoted to gothic romance novels. I've never actually read one—apart from some of Daphne du Maurier's stuff—but the covers are so gorgeous! I wish I could live inside them. The paintings and typography are a match made in heaven; these type treatments actually inspired the Cat Party logo. But anyway, all of the lovely covers below were pulled from My Love-Haunted Heart's flickr. Best flickr ever?

These are incredible. I'm always on the lookout for titles like these. I actually just found the sequel to Audrey Rose which is just as enchanting.

The best titles too! This makes me want to go garage-saling!

Thanks for the link and kind words. And if anyone has any suggestions for books / authors you’d like to see on my blog, I’d love to hear from you!
All the best

These are amazing. I need to find some of these for rainy day and airplane reading.
