On the Covers with Jason Vendryes (Romance Model)

Guest Blog by Sharon S.

We all just love our romance covers. Why? Smexy man taffy*, duh! There are some popular trends out there when it comes to what body part appears on a cover. You can have just a head shot, which isn’t one of my favorites because I am an OMGABS kind of girl. So, a cover with just a torso or the whole man are my favorite. Jacki Burton has a contemporary romance series called Play-by-Play. Each book is about a different kind of athlete. Her latest release is a hockey story called Taking a Shot. The model on the cover is Jason Vendryes.

I had the pleasure of interviewing him on my blog and he is one of the most charming and sweet personalities you will ever meet! This is what he says about himself:

I’m an American actor and model. I’ve appeared on shows like The Beautiful Life: TBL, Big Lake, Bravo’s Fashion Hunters, Dr. G Medical Examiner, Dog Bites Man, and Disney’s Ultimate 10 as well as a few films such as the recently released W.E. On the modeling side, I’ve been in multiple fitness magazines, walked runway for Nike and Adidas, and shot print work for several swimwear and underwear companies.

He can also be found on the cover of Prince of Wolves by Susan Krinard, once again showing off those fabulous abs. When he isn’t working, traveling or enjoying outdoor adventures he is involved with charity work. Some of his favorites are Give Kids the World, Dreamflight, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Yes, my friends he is the whole package! He even has a sense of humor. And I will give you a tip on how to get his attention…bring sour gummy worms.

So, when it comes to man part covers. What kind do you like to see?

*Man taffy compares an alpha male to a piece of taffy. It can be hard, but once you warm it up, it becomes all soft and chewy.

Susan’s Quoted on the Front Cover of Heart of the Highland Wolf by Terry Spear!

It’s time to showcase another awesome quote from staff reviewer, Susan! She informed me of it a little while ago, but I’ve been delayed in posting it until now because it’s not yet for sale.

So why now? Because I simply couldn’t resist the temptation to share Susan’s good news any longer.

You can pre-order Heart of the Highland Wolf at Amazon. The book releases June 1, 2011 from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

For those who can’t see the text on the cover above very well… here is it:

“Bursting with Romance, Suspense, and Heart-Pounding Excitement.”

The quote comes from Susan’s review of Legend of the White Wolf by Terry Spear which you can check out for yourself as it’s a great book too. Click on over: Review: Legend of the White Wolf by Terry Spear

Congratulations Susan for a well deserved book cover shoutout! I’m so happy for you. :D

Yesterday’s quote from Legend of the White Wolf is found on the front of Seduced by the Wolf! How neat is that? I think it’s pretty sweet myself, but then it’s my quote. lol :D This is what it says on the cover:

Thanks to all the hard work of everybody at Sourcebooks and of course to Ms. Spear for writing her awesome books!

I’m Quoted on the Back of Legend of the White Wolf!

I think finding out that you have been quoted on book jackets is probably one of the coolest things about being a book blogger. I was informed recently that I had missed such a quote on Legend of the White Wolf and I am here to rectify that immediately!

Let’s throw a party and celebrate :D *passes out hunky heroes, sparkling grape juice, and confetti*

If the picture is a little hard to read the quote is as follows:

“Terry Spear weaves paranormal, suspense, and romance together in one non-stop rollercoaster of passion and adventure.”

Many thanks to Sourcebooks for the happy little blurb! :D

Susan’s Quoted on the Front of It Happened One Bite!

Susan just informed me that she was quoted on the front of It Happened One Bite by Lydia Dare! She sent me a picture and I have to tell you the cover for It Happened One Bite is gorgeous! I love it and not just because Love Romance Passion is listed on the front. ;)

For those who can’t see the text on the cover very well… here is it:

“Full of magick and desire… Lydia Dare casts a spell on her readers!”

Isn’t it just totally awesome!?! Woot!

The quote comes from Susan’s review of Tall, Dark, and Wolfish by Lydia Dare which you can check out for yourself.

Now I’m going to brag on her… because you see this is Susan’s second book quote! The other was for Terry Spear’s Accidental Highland Hero.

SQUEEE!!!!

Susan is quoted on the back of Terry Spear’s The Accidental Highland Hero!

Don’t you think that’s pretty darn awesome?! I do!

I knew about her quote since January, but waited to announce it to everybody until I had pictures (which she just sent me), because everything is more exciting with pictures. :D

Her quote reads:

“This spicy historical will steal your breath, and capture your heart.”
-Susan Sigler, Love Romance Passion

And LOOK! It’s on the inside too!

How neat is that? Congrats Susan on your fabulous quote!

Love Romance Passion Quoted on the Back of a Book! Squee!

I meant to post this before posting my review of My Own Personal Soap Opera by Libby Malin, but got distracted by the story which I finished and reviewed in record timing during the wee hours of this morning.

The story… I noticed the quote on the back when I was about halfway through the book and somebody asked me what I was reading. I shared and in the process closed the book and really looked at the back of the cover. The poor person’s ears are probably busted from that “OMG! Squee!” of mine. lol :)

The quote came from my post: Review: Fire Me by Libby Malin.

Does a happy dance.

This totally made my week!
