We love male models—what's not to like! After all they're paid to keep their bodies at their yummiest. In romance, especially, the male romance novel cover model is supposed to be the personification of your favorite hero.
As a Valentine's Day treat, we gave you some of our favorites—from Paul Marron, who's on almost everything, to Jed Hill, who graces the cover of Jaci Burton's Play-by-Play series. Now, we've dug into the trenches again to find some of the hottest cover models. Of course we couldn't forget Paul, but have also included Mr. Romance 2009, Charles Paz who can be seen on Connie Mason's Lord of Devil Isle, Brooks Johnson of Julianne MacLean's Rebel, Sam Bond (who also has a British accent!) from Amanda Forester's The Highlander's Heart, Francis J. Cura from Nalini Singh's Tangle of Need, and finally Colin Atkinson of Eternal Hope by Frankie Rose.
