My friend the famous historical romance author would occasionally bemoan the fact that her cover model for two of her books had many, many more facebook followers than she had…
And indeed, her cover model-turned-online-cheff Nathan Kamp occupied that coveted Fabio spot for awhile when it came to romance covers.
But who will take his place? Well, peeps, one day an email popped up in my inbox introducing me to a new contender for Supremely Hot Romance Cover Super-model. He is Greek and his name is Grigoris Drakackis – and he is every paranormal author’s dream come true.
Hot. Broody. Dark. He belongs in a decaying weird castle, festering with tortured secrets.
There’s something dangerous about his look, something wild. He’s a serious bad boy.
Well, on the cover of a romance novel at least. Here’s what he had to say to us at Lady Smut.
GORGEOUS SUPER ROMANCE MODEL GRIGORIS DRAKAKIS: My name is Grigoris and I am from Lavrio, Greece.
GORGEOUS SUPER ROMANCE MODEL GRIGORIS DRAKAKIS: But I also travel to the US as well to visit friends.
MADELINE IVA: Do you enjoy being every paranormal reader’s fantasy of a dark, brooding hero?
GORGEOUS SUPER ROMANCE MODEL GRIGORIS DRAKAKIS: My look of course helps open new opportunities in modeling but most important is personality and character. I believe this is the key for success!!!
GORGEOUS SUPER ROMANCE MODEL GRIGORIS DRAKAKIS: It is very important to have respect with a woman at a shoot and to make her feel at ease to have a successful result.
MADELINE IVA: What is involved in creating a successful romantic clinch?
GORGEOUS SUPER ROMANCE MODEL GRIGORIS DRAKAKIS: Of course chemistry is very important and a must for best results…Most of all it is what you emanate…
GORGEOUS SUPER ROMANCE MODEL GRIGORIS DRAKAKIS: Modeling in the US is very different because it is very advanced.
