The Men on Romance Covers . . . Yes, They are Real
“That is Paul Marron in your cover art,” she said holding up the inside cover illustration from IN THE HIGHLANDER’S BED—and that is how I was introduced to Sheree or, as she is better known on FB, S G-s Tieh.
I love meeting people when I travel for events. I adore my fellow romance readers. We come from all walks of life, every career, every social strata, every level of education and intelligence. I had noticed S G-s Tieh’s posts on my FB page many a time so meeting her was a delight—especially to learn she admired the cover art of our books as much as I did.
And, she knew who the cover models were.
It became a game with us. Paul Marron is one of her favorite models. Sheree has a Pinterest site that shows him in many incarnations—shape-shifter, pirate lord, duke, motorcycle man, he is a model of choice for many artists. I didn’t even realize he was the model in my HIGHLANDER’S BED cover art. After all, the pic shows a strong nose, stronger shoulders, and blonde hair, but Sheree knew.
After that, we made a game of naming the models. Sheree and I were at the first KissCon with over eight other authors and a mountain of romance novels. “Oh, that is Thierry Pepin,” Sheree said. “There is Nathan Kemp. The woman is Laura Williams.”
So, I take great pleasure in introducing you to Sheree. If you, too, are a fan of cover art or if one of those handsome blokes on our covers catches your eye, Sheree is a great resource for learning more. You can follow her on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/infinitieh. Go pay a visit.
