I’ve been very B-U-S-Y lately! Want to know why? You do? Curiosity killed the cat, but since satisfaction brought it back-you’re in luck. I’ve been sleuthing for cover models. Seriously, you are NOT going to believe the cover models I’ve uncovered. Even I can’t believe it. There’s a romance novel cover girl who I’ve been searching high and low for (goes back to that whole curiosity thing), and I found her. Bwah-ha-ha! I also found a male romance cover model that has me completely flustered (see number 1 on my list). Hope you enjoy the post as much as I’m enjoying presenting it. Here goes!

Romance Cover Model # 1: Brett Davis. He’s on the cover of To Desire a Devil by Elizabeth Hoyt. Brett has a really nice website with some great photographs; here’s the link: http://www.brettdavisla.com/

Romance Cover Model #2: Ewa da Cruz. She’s the one I was searching for, and can be found on the following covers: The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn, Lord and Lady Spy by Shana Galen, The Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne, and Royal Blood by Rona Sharon, just to name a few. Ewa’s on facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ewa-Da-Cruz/106284649402511

Romance Cover Model #3: Richard Cerqueira graces the following novels: Not Quite A Lady by Louise Allen, The Angel and the Outlaw by Ingrid Weaver, and Comanche Vow by Sheri Whitefeather. Sorry guys and gals; I couldn’t authenticate an actual link for Cerqueira.

Romance Cover Model #4: Serene Aandahl. I love her photographs! Serene’s covers include: Mistress By Midnight written by Maggie Robinson, Never Love a Highlander by Maya Banks, and So I Married A Demon Slayer by Angie Fox, Kathy Love and Lexi George. She’s got more, but thought I’d name my favorites among her covers. Aandahl also did a cover with Charles Paz and if I’m not mistaken, its Connie Mason’s book Lord of Devil Isle. I couldn’t verify a website for her.

Romance Cover Model #5: Emmanuel Fremin is on the cover of Scandalous Desires by Elizabeth Hoyt.

Find him on Model Mayhem: http://www.modelmayhem.com/520417

Romance Cover Model #6: David Craigmile can be found on Best Man's Conquest by Michelle Celmer.

Website: http://www.maxtalent.com/model/david-craigmile

Romance Cover Model #7: Jason Aaron Baca is on Legacy Found by N.J. Walters.

Website: http://jasonaaronbaca.deviantart.com/

Romance Cover Model #8: Devin Eldridge is on the stepback (inside flap) of Turbulent Sea by Christine Feehan. I also heard say that he’s credited for being on the stepback to Elizabeth Hoyt’s Wicked Intentions. There’s a website domain with his name, but it’s not working for me for some reason. Mayhap it’s in the early stages of being set up.

Romance Cover Model #9: Danielle Impriano can be found looking away from you on Never Look Back by Sheri Whitefeather. Here’s an article about her http://www.aroundphilly.com/blog/2005/01/25/maxim-ize-your-nightlife/ and the author’s quick bio of Danielle http://www.cheriefeather.com/covermodels.html

Romance Cover Model #10: Cherif Fortin is a former romance cover model who was on The Shadowing by Joan Overfield and Rejar by Dara Joy. You can learn more about him here http://www.modelmayhem.com/1911476 He’s now a photographer, illustrator, and graphic designer. To see some of his images one need just hop on over to http://www.cheriffortin.com/index.html

Of Note: Ryan Taylor who’s on many-a-cover. (This site is for adults) http://www.ryantaylor.co.za/aboutme.html

To LRP readers: I spent considerable time online researching for this post; if there are any errors, you have my sincerest apologies. But I think we’re good! Laughs.

I agree with you on Brett Davis. Whew!

Don’t know if you have seen it or not, but on Elizabeth Hoyt’s Goodreads page, she had a video showing the photo shoot for Scandalous Desires.

Hi Karin,
Sorry; guess I’ll be responsible for the upsurge in your electrical bill this month…I feel soooo guilty!

@Carla,
Hiiii. And no I haven’t seen it, so thank you so much for sharing. I’m hopping on over now. Thanks!

I like how this time around there’s some female cover models on the list! Fun!!!

@Keira,
I got to thinking, men aren’t the only ones who bring attention to a novel. Women make covers look great, too! :)

Great list! Ewa is my favorite female cover model; she’s on so many covers, from historicals to paranormals.

Hi infinitieh,

Thank you!
I agree. And in my next lifetime, I want to look like that. LOL. Actually, I see Ewa’s image every day because I use a bookmark of Rona Sharon’s novel Royal Blood. One side of the bookmark shows a close up of her face.

Okay, now that I look at Sam Bond’s covers on the links you provided to his blog, I think he may be Mr. Much Ado About Vampires, Katie MacAlister’s cover man. Not many have the cleft and that chest! What do you think? And could he be the cover for Diana Cosby’s new book, His Destiny? I don’t know.

sorry, Diana’s cover looks like de Salvo or a relative. Is he still doing covers?

12 Susan S. January 5, 2012 at 9:58 PM

Livia, I think I may have to disagree on both counts. MacAlister’s cover man just doesn’t strike me as Sam. And, o.k.-you might find this funny, but I placed Sam’s image in one window and placed Diana’s cover on another window on my pc. When I contrast the two, I spied with my little eye that Diana’s model has a prominent adam’s apple and smaller guns-whereas Sam has bigger guns and…where’s the adam’s apple? But what do I know. LOL. I’m just a jr. detective on the Nancy Drew pc games.

Do you know who the guy is on the cover of Highland Hero by Amanda Scott? I also need cooler A/C and less hair pulling like Brenna. He is my favorite – I think it’s his eyes, but the guys on Amanda’s other books in this series – Highland Lover/Highland Master – are gorgeous. Thanks for whatever you can tell me.

I have been searching for weeks now to find out who is the gorgeous guy with the great lips ad long dark lashes on the cover of “Deception” by Kris Kennedy. Fantastic book by the way. I gotta read all her other stuff now. Anyway…don’t think I have seen this model anywhere else. Cover design credits go to a Jacquelynne Hudson at Simon and Schuster. Sent here a tweet but didn’t get an answer back. PLEASE, anyone tell me who he is. Gotta find a pic that shows his eyes. ;)

Thanks!
