Okay I’ll just start out by saying this contest was hella crazy. Why?
Last Cover Model Contest, I received about 500 votes, spread out over a two-week period.
Three times as many!!! And that was in just 4 days of voting!! Holy hell, ladies and gents, you were all over these guys! Ha! Votes continued to come in up until midnight.
Before I get to the winner (don’t peek!), I want to say thank you to some folks who helped out with this contest and made it a success.
First, to David Wagner, for weeding through all the portfolios submitted for the contest, and narrowing down some smokin’ hot guys. Damn, they were sexy and I’d have never stumbled upon them without David’s help. Authors, seriously, check out David’s cover work. He’s so easygoing, fun to collaborate with AND he has connections to some truly stunning men!
Second, to the four gorgeous candidates – Mickael, Rafael, Daniel and Jason. Thanks so much for possessing superior genetics and making this contest an absolute blast! If I could’ve squeezed all four of you onto the cover, I would have!
Third, to my pimps … all the kickass bloggers who helped me spread the word, enormous thanks to each and every one of you!!
And finally, to my readers, thank you for helping me choose the model for Gavin’s book! I love the fact that you all play a role in my stories – a huge role, since a story’s cover is what draws a reader. Thanks to you, Gavin now has a (very) handsome face—one I shall
drool over, I mean, muse over as I finish writing his book. If you opted in for it, your name will be included in a Special Contributors page of Soul Enslaved just for stopping in to vote!
Okay, now for the WINNERS of the Rafflecopter giveaway!!!

Now that we have all that sorted … are you ready to see which drool-worthy candidate YOU chose??
I’m so very excited ….
Very very excited ….
Thrilled to announce that the incredibly sexy
will represent the face of Gavin for Soul Enslaved!!!
Le swoon! That wicked smile! Those beautiful eyes! That chiseled physique! Daniel will make one fine-looking Wrath demon … very happy to have him on the cover!
And I had the pleasure of chatting with David this afternoon, brainstorming ideas to make this cover hot hot hot!! So you’re in for a treat, ladies … as you know, Gavin has his own style and it’ll surely come through in the design we’re planning.
If your guy didn’t happen to win this particular cover—and I’m asking that all voters please be respectful to all candidates in the contest—you still played an enormous role by getting to know the character, spreading the word and taking the time to cast your vote. And for that, I’m incredibly grateful! There will more opportunities throughout this series for all of you to own a part of my stories.
So when is Soul Enslaved coming??
I’m working on Gavin’s story as we speak. I will keep you updated as it gets closer to publication!
In the meantime, I’ll be publishing a FREE short erotic novel, titled The Fallen. That will come out sometime in April and is the story of Xander, the fallen angel in the Sons of Wrath series. This book is a standalone and NOT part of overarching story that spans the series. Keep an eye out for that!
Thanks so much for reading <3
