bit over-romanticised ... the exotic east ... much preferred the other

Sharon - really nice to her from you. The idea of the new cover is to capture the exotic east in all its beauty and mystery. And a maiden with an orchid in her hair, I guess, best exemplifies that concept. Though a tad over-romanticised, it is a very effective marketing ploy in the publishing industry. Yes, I too prefer the old cover. Happy reading!
