Well, there's a plethora of sexy guys in gay romances and a lot of not one but TWO (or three, or four, etc.) great male models end up on our covers. Some get their heads cut off and their bodies are shown off, but I prefer the heads on IF I can find a model that looks similar enough to my characters. It can take me hours upon hours to find the right models for these covers (my publisher lets me be a part of the selection process because I'm so fussy about the covers). I often start looking even before I send my manuscript to a publisher.
I have a huge crush on the guy on my first novel-cover (Adam). I mean, he's just gorgeous. He also cost way more than the other stock photos I could have chosen from, but I was adamant about using this one (my poor publisher...). In my head, he looks exactly like this even before I found this picture:
Jesse, in this cover, is just a body. A weird body (kind of looks like someone took a bite out of his side - probably Adam in one of their heated moments ;)), but the back turned to Adam has to do with the story.
I'm also in love with artwork made by Zathyn Priest at The Scarlet Tie Designs. He made all the covers for my College Fun and Gays books and most were pre-made, meaning I had no say in them (those are usually his best!).
