Evolution of a Book Cover

Fact of publishing life: from time to time, book covers get updated. It often happens when a book goes back to print, a new edition is released, or if a movie or television show is made of the book (Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER is a recent can see a bunch of different covers, including the television tie-in edition, by following this link.)

After getting feedback from readers and booksellers, Honeymoon With a Prince, the second book in my Royal Scandals series, is getting a cover refresh.  Honeymoon With a Prince tells the story of Prince Massimo Barrali, a man who's home fresh from the horrors of battle with African drug lords, and Kelly Chase, a woman who's taking her honeymoon solo and re-evaluating her life after discovering her former fiancĂ© wasn't the man she thought she knew.

Here's the original cover:

And the new version:

Opinion time: do you prefer the old cover (lying down), or the new one (standing)? For those of you who've read the book, which do you think better reflects Kelly and Massimo's story? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
