Oh, heck, I just read a book like this, but I can't remember what it was!

Misfit I started the list so I have it when I need to add another :o

If I can find it, I'll add mine. It was pretty blatantly wrong!

Misfit It annoys me to no end when they blatantly make stuff up that isn't even in the book.

Especially when they try to make it sound more exciting or romantic than it turns out to be.

The worst example yet is Mistress of Paradise at the top of this list, both cover and blurb. People would run from a very good story just sticking their noses in the air and poo-pooing that it was a smexy romance. Gah.
