Giving away a free book today...

I want to know what kind of hero you prefer...
So please check out the guys below...and pick your favorite man...
# 1

# 2

# 3

# 4

# 5

# 6


Okay...look these hot men over and let me know in comments which guy rings your bells...the most.  Tell me why.  The way he is standing? The way he makes you feel?  His body?  His attitude?  The way his jeans fit?  


What makes you sit up and take a closer look?  Is there an aura of sensuality?  A sense of sex-on-the-hoof masculinity?  Or do you just love to ogle?  Would you buy a book that had one of these men on the cover?  Or would you pass it over in favor of a cook book?


We are authors. We are in the business of selling books.  It isn't surprising that many readers choose a book because of the cover.  Shallow?  Not at all.  A cover must be evocative, sexy, thrilling.  A cover must make a reader turn and stare, then reach out.  The reader will then peruse the blurb...the excerpt.  If it all fits, the reader will buy.

So, in the time-honored tradition of voting for your favorites, please tell me which guy rings YOUR bells.  And why he does.  And if I really love your comment, you may just win a hot, sexy book.


Have fun!

Number 2 for me. Not sure if it's the way he's standing, but I love his body. :)

No need to enter me in the contest. I have all Fran Lee books! :o)

EdgesAngel22 said...

First, I would buy a book with anyone of those men on it...they are all hot and having any of them on cover is a guaranteed sell to me.
Second I cant chose just one, so for me, I have to chose two of them.
#4 Got my attention right away, he is beautiful and has such a dominant sexy way about him. Plus I love Black men, and it is hard as Heck to find interracial romance with a the man being Black.
#5 Rocks my world too. I love Tattoos on a man...makes me mouth water.
So there you have it, I am a "greedy cat". LOL

Cathy said...

Which man I think is hot? I think it is number 4 because he is not only sexy, but also has a strong sensitivity about him... ;)

Paris said...

Number 6 for me:) He has that whole strong, working man appeal and guys who can "fix" things do it for me. Then there's the nature thing where he isn't afraid of getting his hair wet, and oh my but his neck looks delicious and he looks as if he's about to drop his overalls, and...

I think I need some ice-water and I haven't even gotten to the Tattoo yet:)

Fran Lee said...

Mmmm...thanks, Amber! Number 2 is certainly a hottie!

Fran Lee said...

Ashley...number 5 is definitely hot...I totally agree. Thanks for entering!

Fran Lee said...

Thanks for the info, Michellelady...I loved all of these guys...thanks for entering!

Fran Lee said...

Yum, Cathy! Don't you just love his...hands?

Fran Lee said...

A round of ice-cream and ice-water coming up for Paris! LOL!

Deborah R said...

OH they are all hot but my favorite is definitely #5! He just looks like hot alpha male to me! Love the tats too!
Can we turn the AC on now, it's hot in here!

Chrisbails said...

#2 was it for me until I saw #5. Wow those tatoos are just so sexy. Made me want to help him with his pants. Love the tattoos on his pelvis, super sexy.

Dawn Jackson said...

I'm all for #6. Something about a hot guy all wet and sexy looking that gets my blood boiling. Whether it is with clothes or not. In this picture I sense emotion in the model that screams sex appeal. Mmmmmmmmm Yummy! *Wink*

Fran Lee said...

Thanks, Deborah! Ditto! LOL!

Fran Lee said...

Chris, you have great taste!

Fran Lee said...

Dawn, I love a wet man too...sooo sexy!

*lizzie starr said...

to choose, to choose...
There's definite attributes to each. But probably number 2 and 6. (Why limit myself) :)

The reason--While a well defined 6 pack is marvelous, it's not what I'm totally attracted to. But it sure is fun to look.

As for a book cover--I'm not that influenced by what's on a cover. Really.

Fran Lee said...

Lizzie, you are a sweetie! I couldn't pick, either...so I chose all of them!

Delisha said...

Definitely #2. His skin tone and his muscles are in all the right places. Very sexy!!Very Hott!! *Drooling* Lol :))

Fran Lee said...

Delisha, I agree...love him!

Harlie Reader said...

For me its #5. Tats and the facial hair totally do it for me. The scruffy feel of his facial hair....I can feel it tickle me. Plus, his happy trail is very nice.

I have a thing for tats and facial hair. Always have.

Debby said...

I like number one. Although I would not kick any of the others out.

Victoria M. Noxon said...

Definitely #5. Love the tattoos...So sexy!

Fran Lee said...

Harlie, dear, I completely agree...YUM!

Fran Lee said...

Hi, Debbie! Thanks...I love him, too!

Fran Lee said...

Yesss, Victoria...oooooh...you know it!

Kay said...

All the guys are so hot. I can't choose just one..

#1 has all those yummy muscels and that peek of his but oh so tempting.

#4 There is all those yummy musclels again hmmm and those long fingers makes me want to invite him to play me.

#5 Those muscles are yummy and lean. I luv the tats, especially the wings placed in the right spot, giving me hope for one hell of a flight..

I would buy a book with any of these guys on it with the right title. The cover and title get my attention, the outline on the back cover hooks me.. Thanks for the eye candy. :D

Ing said...

Hands down pic #5. The tat, the sexy trail, the abs, the aura of badass bad boy. Just gorgeous.

You are going to make me pick just one!! I can't, they are all fantastic and if I absolutely had to choose one...well. Well, I'd narrow it down to number 1, 3 and 5. Yikes....I can't get any better than that. I would choose all of them if I could. You make a hard bargain here. Judy King

Karen C said...

#2 is the one who does it for me - probably the pose and his body is amazing.

Na said...

I would like to place an order for #2 please. Will tip well.

His aura is definitely part of his appeal. I like his smile, which is more of a smirk but it shows a bit of his personality. He has a self-assured stance even though the minor slouch indicates he's laid back. The one hand on the jeans makes me thing he has a handle on things.

I hope my order comes through... :)

Fran Lee said...

Whoot, Kay! I'm with you, girl!

Fran Lee said...

Ing, You have fine taste in guys! LOL!

Fran Lee said...

Judy, I can see your point...a true smorgasbord of deliciousness spread out before us...Yum...

Fran Lee said...

Karen, he is a tasty morsel...I agree!

Fran Lee said...

Na, I have told him you want him...I am trying to tie him down for shipment, but he is pretty powerful...LOL!

Gabrielle Lee said...

I love number 6! I love a nice set of arms on a man and tats are an added bonus but of course that is just the iceing on the cake if it is on the cover of a wonderful book. A cover may catch my eye but it doesn't make me buy the book or not.

Fran Lee said...

Gabrielle! Yes...but if a cover doesn't catch your eye, do you actually pick that book up to look at the blurbs? LOL! Thanks for your input!

Fran Lee said...

It was loads of fun, everyone! I picked several winners and the prizes were sent. If you didn't leave me an e-mail addy, I couldn't send you anything...and there were SO many great comments! Thanks everyone, and see you in December..the 15th!

Tessie Bradford said...

Hi Fran!
I'm late as usual! My votes are for #2 & #5, however, I'm pretty darn sure that given the opportunity, I'd make time for any one of them!!

Katalina Leon said...

I'm undecided. I need to see a few more photo's of each man before making a solid decision...lol
XXOO Kat

Adele Dubois said...

Holy cow, Fran, I'm glad I stopped by! I'm late to the party, but played anyway. I looked and looked and looked and... at the selection of hot cover models. My fave is number 1. The way he's sliding off his jeans makes me think he's ready to go. Wow!

Thanks for the fun!

Best--Adele

Fran Lee said...

Aw, Tessie! Better late than never, I always say! Thanks...I'm glad you enjoyed the smorgasbord...LOL!

Fran Lee said...

Kat, love, If I find more photos of these guys, I will give you the URL and let you feast your eyes to your heart's content! :)

Fran Lee said...

Adele, sweetie, I'm glad you dropped by! Long time no see! Aren't they the hottest bods you've seen in a while? And I totally agree about number 1...OMG! Would I jump those sexy bones if I had a chance? Durn tootin'!
