Cover Models & Hero Inspiration


After seeing this hero, how could I not write a story about him? He's the inspiration for Zephyr Nikos in The Greek's Pregnant Lover (Aug - Harlequin Presents), the 2nd book in my Traditional Greek Husbands duo and my 25th Harlequin release! I think's he's just delish and such a Presents kind of guy!

uhhh i think it is safe to say that most of the word for his tall, dark , and hansom bing were already used. So i think I will just sit over here and drool a bit lol!

If this had been Regency England, I might have had the vapors when I saw this photo. I can definitely see him as Zephyr. You always have the best inspiration! He just looks soooo intense and passionate.

Yum! He's the kind of guy that you want to take home and lock in your bedroom ...and never let out! Great inspiration!

Raonaid Luckwell said...

Mmm, he can be my inspiration any time of the day!

etirv said...

I normally don't pay too much attention to book covers but this I certainly paid attention to! Thanks, Lucy!

nmulder81 said...

Oh my...def gives me LOTS of ideas of my own!!! :)

red said...

Love your hero inspiration and I can't wait to read the book next month- I buy your books from Mills and Boon web site so they sell them a month ahead of the stores.

I loved the first book in the series The Shy Bride and I'm sure I'll also enjoy reading The Greek's Pregnant Lover.

Ina said...

robynl said...

He's giving me some inspiration as well.

Lady_Graeye said...

Could he be for real! OMG! Just my kinds of man. Tall, dark, handsome and speaks a langauge that would give me goosebumps! Booklover says she feels like a cougar, I am a cougar!

SiNn said...

joder said...

Oh my, I'm definitely inspired to do alot of things after seeing Mr. Sexy!

Aly said...

Yummmyyyyyy :)

erahime said...

Well, dawg gawnit. I mean, eh...I want to keep it family-friendly, so the D-word that I wanted to use is replaced with that phrase. But you get it, right?

Anyway, read the blurb for the book, imagined the cover model as Zephyr, and...*drools*

Judy F said...

shummm did you steal him from my stable??? LOL

Isn't he delish?

Hope you are having fun in Columbus

Jennifer Mathis said...

wow thats so nice . Off to drool some more

Zina Lynch said...

Ok, so is he available to give personal tours of his body-- opps I mean Greece?

Nichole said...

Oh yum! I'm so jealous that you get to stare at these pictures all day while writing. The HP line is one of my favorites. Lucy and Lynne Graham are must must buys! And I too am a sucker for HPs with Boss, Secretary or Greek and Pregnant. I don't like revenge plots much which is strange because Lynne Graham uses that alot.

Lil said...

You're right. That photo does scream Presents hero! *sigh*

Joni said...

Dayum...now I gotta go change my panties. I so look forward to how you bring his internal characteristics to life if this is all it takes for me so far! LOL

Nancy G said...

Oh, man, does he look yummy. I look, no harm in that, I stay away form guys young enough to be one of my kids, but still, I ain't dead yet.

Jami Davenport said...

He could be my Greek lover anyway.

donnas said...

Yes please.

Thanks!

Rhea said...

Very nice, can't wait to read the book.

Lois said...

Now that is most certainly a mighty fine hottie! :)

Kammie said...
