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