Several of you have wondered if Slouching Guy and Open Black Jacket Guy (OBJG) are the same person.
Hmm. Good question. I can’t quite tell.
What do you think?
I think they both have the same… belt.
And is this the same guy, or just someone else wearing that same jacket (now with bonus cop’s shield)?!
“These are my pink sparklies. Mine. MINE!!! You stay away, you big kitty, you.” -Mayhem
I think it’s safe to say she likes them, Nicole – thank you!

I think same guy although he looks happier as a top.
Well yeah, I think open jacket and slouching guys are the same… Maybe top men too, but a different photo… can you believe it? they took more than one??

Duh, they are not the same person, because obviously, how could they both be on the first cover? You know, I sort of want to discuss the jacket. Is it possible that’s a Members Only jacket?

Mayhem someone could come up from behind. Keep an eye out at all times!
.-= margeneÂ´s last blog ..THIRTY!! =-.
Yeah, I’d have to say that it’s the same guy. 😉
.-= BrigitteÂ´s last blog ..Princess Line =-.
Heh, leave it to Tam to go there. 🙂
And yes, definitely the same guy. Or at least twins.
.-= MelÂ´s last blog ..Bits & Bobs =-.
Pather princesses are pretty possessive!

Hmmm, I’m not convinced they are the same, although they def look alike. I think I’m with Mel and her twin theory…

Oh my god, hot hot chiseled ab twins?
Mel: I am a good girl 😛 and I was just pointing out his apparent lift in mood after switching from that slutty chick in underwear to menz.
It looks like the same guy, although I don’t know why they gave him long hair in the top pic…
@ Carolyn – The jacket looks like something from Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation”, kind of military and fitted (insert obligatory “nipple exposure” joke here).
Crap Chris- we’re going to have to have a round table discussion on this- I think it’s the same dude.
I’m with Tam. He’s much happier with menz than womenz. Or maybe it’s the badge. Hmm…

I prefer to fantasize think that there are twins involved in this photoshoot. Yes, twins. Lonely twins…
BTW – You have been honored on my blog 😉
Sweet Vernal Zephyr
.-= MirandaÂ´s last blog ..Thank You Carol’s Notebook =-.
I vote for them being the same.
.-= Cheryl S.Â´s last blog ..Snowmen =-.
Looks like the same guy to me.
Pink sparkly mice worthy of a Panther Princess!
How many times have you had to throw them, Chris?

It looks like they’re the same man although maybe they’re twins in which case you’ve got a whole new kink to follow up on.
.-= LilyÂ´s last blog ..Mondays… Music and Man Candy =-.
It might be just me, but I think deep down every girl likes pink sparklies.
I’d say that they are the same.
And yay my fav slouching guy is back 😉

.-= TeyaniÂ´s last blog ..Geesh – is it still January? =-.
You know I think they are the same guy… Just looked at Amanda Young books again and the guy on TOO KEEN..
They are the same guy…
Do you see what we have resorted to – figuring out if guys on book ccovers are the same person… Chris the leader of the time waster pack…
.-= Erotic HorizonÂ´s last blog ..What Am I Reading on Mondays â€“ Another great week =-.
They really do look like the same guy to me. I keep trying to see differences, but they are pretty subtle if they are there!
.-= Seanna LeaÂ´s last blog ..finally =-.
I’m glad she likes her pink sparklies! (And thanks for the link.)
I can’t look too closely at those covers. Not with the horse being back again…
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..Goals, Again =-.
The pink sparklies are cute. Mayhem looks a bit as if she is guarding them with her life.
.-= Carrie KÂ´s last blog ..January 11, 1937 – November 28th, 2009 =-.
Same guy. How is it we have more cats on this site than male cover models?
Same pout, I think it’s the same guy. That hair in the first book still makes me throw up in my mouth a little.
Every now and then I think it’s a different guy but then I look at the slouch. Not everyone can slouch like that. I wish he hadn’t brought that horse with him though. Hmm… twins.
Hey what girl cat could resist pink sparkles.
.-= SydneyÂ´s last blog ..Snow Days =-.
I’m betting that’s the same guy. No doubt about it.
Oh, Mayhem I like those pink sparklies! I’d hang on to them too. 🙂

I finally had to forward a link to your cover series to my friend at Harlequin. We used to have the funniest discussions (especially of the painted covers as opposed to the digital ones)–the heroine with three hands, or the approved cover with a beach on it for a book that had no beach scene, or the red-headed long-haired cover for the book about a brunette with short hair…
Same torso – different head?

Speaking of misadventures in stock images (photo or otherwise), have you seen the Reusable Cover Art site?
Amazing what the graphic artists can do with those stock pictures to make each cover look different!
May really likes pink, doesn’t she?
