10 tasty reasons to browse the romance section
Following my successful, and contentious, blog post on the 10 hottest men in romance novels, I thought it only fair to share the 10 hottest men on romance covers. I know it’s Friday and you have tasks to complete before the weekend begins: perhaps you’re trying desperately to remain focused at work, putting the final touches on a presentation that you won’t get credit for; or maybe you’re cleaning the house, which has somehow become a cesspit of mould, dust and dirty laundry, in readiness for a visit from your mother-in-law, who will no doubt still find your housekeeping wanting. Regardless, I’m going to lead you astray for a few moments to cast your eyes on these delicious morsels of male because you, dear reader, deserve it.
Heart of Danger by Lisa Marie Rice
He’s fit, he’s a man with a cause (as evidenced by both dog tags and American flag), he’s all slick from the rain and he’s all yours.
Tucker’s Claim by Sarah McCarty
Tucker is part Native American, and completely delicious. You could grab a hold of that slightly-longer-than-usual hair or follow that delicious ‘v’ right to the end of the rainbow.
A Hunger So Wild by Sylvia Day
I know he’s got a bit of a baby-face, but that silky looking mane and ravenous look in his eye has got me hooked. I’m getting a bit of a Jacob vibe here…and I like it.
The Risk-Taker & One More Kiss by Kira Sinclair and Katherine Garbera
Beautifully defined biceps and abs you could play like a xylophone.
Gotta love a man who can lasso a bull, calm an excited mare and wear the hell out of a pair of jeans. He even makes flannel look sexy.
Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh
A beautiful body that comes pre-scratched so he’ll never know if the marks were from your passionate lovemaking or yesterday’s brawl. Nice package too.
Hot in Handcuffs by Shayla Black, Sylvia Day and Shiloh Walker
I’m quite partial to a smattering of chest hair…particularly when it comes attached to someone who knows their way around a pair of handcuffs.
The Darkest Hour by Maya Banks
This dude is dangerous – you just know his shirt has been ripped off in some vigilante battle of good versus evil. And he’s packing heat – one kind to protect you with, the other to please.
A Perfect Storm by Lori Foster
If there’s one thing I like more than a hot male, it’s a hot drenched male. This is one occasion where I fully support wet t-shirt competitions.
Rev It Up by Julie Ann Walker
I know he’s kinda eighties, but any man who can look that good in a pair of leather pants and rides a motorbike is alright by me.
And an extra little treat…because everyone loves a highlander
