Who’s on the Cover? Cover Models – Part Deux

by Susan S., guest blogger

It never occurred to me I’d get such a big response to my post titled, “Who’s on the Cover? Male Romance Cover Models.” The post was to be what we’d consider a single-title. Well, my post should’ve been a single post. Should’ve, being the operative contraction. When I noticed the comments pouring in I said to myself, “O.k., I’ll do just one more.”

I realize many of these models have graced far more covers than the ones I’ve mentioned here. I’ve purposefully omitted them to save space, and to make navigation easier while looking through my post.

While I did find seven cover models by my lonesome, credit should always be given to others. And I’d really like to take a moment to thank all you LRP readers for being so nice, so helpful, and let’s face it, so AWESOME! Virginia C. had her eyes on Paul Marron. Thanks to her, now so do we! Viking Princess found a Sam. Isn’t she just grand? Others who may have known about Sam: Keira and Jane. Infinitieh led me to John Paul. Without you I was minus one. Thank you!!!

In random order, I present to you 10 additional male romance cover models. Enjoy! No thanks are necessary. Happy thought bubbles will do!

  1. @Chris-Unladylike guffaws and snorts. Maybe he has an affinity for air, and is one of the elements he controls. Lol.

    @Virginia C.-And to think just recently I didn’t know any of the models. Two posts later, plus your recent Francesco find- we can now identify 21. Your right, I’ve seen Francesco’s all over. Brooks and Jimmy had me guessing for ages. Thank goodness I pinned down their identities.

    1. John DeSalvo has an outie belly button too. As a rule I’m not fond of them but for JD I’ll make an exception…

      If anyone can lead me to info on 90’s model Terry VanDaren, (pictured on book “The Rescue”), I’d be very grateful.

      Thanks !

  2. @Chris- I remember candy cane guy; when that book released I bought 2 copies. One for a friend and one for my sister. I remember it well. Hope one day we uncover who owns that belly button.

    @Virginia C.-Great sleuthing! Over 100 covers, wow. We now know why.

  3. Hi infinitieh,

    How apropos, eyebrow guy. Lol. Yes, I see what you mean. I’m not familiar with his image. Will keep my eyes peeled, though.

  4. Aaahhhhhh!!!! Is that a badge I see? Shoot! Have to add it to my TBB/TBR list. Yes, Keira-I see what you mean. Certainly wears those pants well does he not? I too…would like to know! Wonder if it’s Charles Paz, he’s who came to mind when I saw the cover.

  5. As are we Sherry…as are we. And who can blame you for searching. Yow-zah! I’ll keep my eyes peeled, but this is the first I’ve seen of Rowen’s cover model. Then again…his chest may have been used for other covers- I just hadn’t registered him on the radar. Hold please…
    calibrating radar.

  6. Wow, in searching for the the models of these two covers I found your blog. Time for another update lol.
    Who’s on the cover of Katie MacAlister’s new book, Much Ado About Vampires? That gorgeous chest and those eyes have had me mesmerized since she posted about her cover 6 months before it came out. And Diana Cosby’s His Destiny looks like it could be the same model (going strictly by the arm and chest muscles here, ;))

    1. Hi Livia,

      I wish I had an answer for you, especially since I happen to share your curiosity. But I really don’t know. I’ll keep my eyes peeled, though. In the interim you may want to read my part three to Who’s on the cover.
      Here’s the location: http://www.loveromancepassion.com/who%e2%80%99s-on-the-cover-cover-models-part-3/

      Others I’m hoping to discover someday: The model on the cover of A Vampire for Christmas (by Michele Hauf, Laurie London, Alexis Morgan & Caridad Pineiro) reminds me of the actor Ian Somerhalder from the Vampire Diaries. And wouldn’t we all like to know who’s on the cover of Cynthia Eden’s Angel of Darkness.

      Thanks for dropping by!

      1. Oh wonderful. I was just wondering when number three would be out, lol. Now how about number four. It’s like chocolate.

        1. Hi Livia,

          I wrote parts 1-3 out of curiosity (wanted to know who the models were) and pure frustration (that I couldn’t find a short/informational online post like the one I was envisioning in my head). I too love the overall outcome and quite frankly, love my posts just as much as you do. Pardon the narcissism. Lol. I’m not ruling out a number four. Never say never right? But it’s alot of research and time is forever fleeting. I will say this-I’ll post the link here if I write a part four. Hugs-a-bunches!

    1. Hi Cindy,

      I understand the interest. That’s a nice cover. I wish I could say, but I really don’t know. I’ll keep my antenna trackers on though.

  7. Hello

  8. thanks for the article. and no you’re. not the only person out there who want to know who are there people on the book cover. i’m still trying to find out who the famous couple is on a book caleed Easy by Tamara Webber and a book called Picture Perfect by Ella Fox. they’re always in profile and would love to find out more about them. any idea who they might be?

  9. Hello again, still searching for cover model on Deep Kiss of Winter by Cresrley Cole. I keep my eyes open for others and will post if I find any. Thanks ladies.
