Congrats to elaing8, who won Boots by Angel Martinez!! Boots was released by Amber Allure on April 17.
Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be catching up a bit with Wind-in-Hair Guy (WiHG). It turns out that WiHG’s real name is Sam Bond and he’s a bodybuilder from the UK.
Make sure that you keep an eye out for Candy Cane Guy as you stumble through this Misadventure. And many thanks to everyone who’s been sending me covers! You’re all coming along nicely. 😉

*blink blink blink* I’m as surprised as all of you over where that ended!

He’s very lonely on a lot of covers!
Wow. Could that Viking helmet look any more pasted on his head? I’m very disappointed in the ending. Oh well, I’m sure he’ll be back to the boys soon enough.

Ha ha – a surprise ending 🙂
Agree with Tam, that viking helmet is awful.
Ninth cover: Conan the Barbarian in little boy’s Halloween Viking costume.
A recent post from trek..Disjoint and random
Wow, a long story today.
He’s already got long hair and they still managed to mess up his hair in Wildlander.

Is that “women Only” chick cross-eyed? Or is my image too small?
“All I Want for Christmas is a Viking.”?? Really.
LOL. Oh, WiHG, I hope the money’s good.
Hi Mayhem! *scritch*
A recent post from Brigitte..So Its Really Been AwhileWhoops
I concerned about our society and it’s need to write and read books of this caliber. Oh and pick the same guy over and over for so many covers. We are not creative? Or are we too create?

Chris- Hmmm, Ring of Fire- sounds kinda painful.
A recent post from Lorraine..What Big Ears You Have
lol I wasnÂ´t expecting the viking 🙂
Thank you 🙂
What an epic! It is an unusual ending for a naughty boy.
May looks very displeased.
A recent post from Brenda..Green
And to think, if you’d ended with “The Warrior”, he’d have finally gotten his man. 😉
Nicely done. He’s on a ton of covers.
May I take a breath now?
Man, that was the War and Peace of MiSP. Vikings and sheiks and dragons…oh my! I kind of lost the flow when I reached the dork in the ill-fitting helmet, the steroidal Scotsman, and the “Biting Me Softly” title. Laughing tends to interrupt my concentration. 🙂
A recent post from K. Z. Snow..Asspressions & Acronyms
I’m with KZ, this one was epic! It got truly inspired when he snatched the sheik from the Viking raider!
A recent post from Val Kovalin..Product page and excerpt are here for Ink Illusions
I clap for Mayhem! Perfect ending to a story that was at times disburbing! Am I the only one who did a double take of the For Women Only cover? What did they do to him? Poor guy. OMG, the bad photoshop in All I Want For Christmas…! I love that it is right before Revealing Thorn. Perfect! I still love the cover for Biting Me Softly. Whoever cropped and selected the colors did a really good job. Way to go WiHG! You know, I don’t look at covers the same way anymore. This feature is really enlightening.
Ha ha! “I can’t think of anything other than you biting me softly.” I’m stunned over the breadth and scope of this tale. Great job!
A recent post from Jordan Castillo Price..April JCP News is out
Whew, that was truly impressive! Surprise ending was a surprise, for sure.
The chick on For Women Only disturbs me a bit. She looks like a lion shifter caught mid-change. Worse, and especially inexplicable given the title, she appears to be attempting to claw her boobs off!
What is wrong with the woman’s face on that ‘For Women Only’ cover?!
And…well now, what a nasty little bitch to suddenly say he is STRAIGHT! humph!

That viking helmet – LMAO! And that Beyond Magic cover…*snickers*. What’s beyond magic is WiHG’s hair.
A recent post from Ava March..Convincing Leopold – Excerpt
There are a few covers where he seems to be disappearing into a blueish mist. Perhaps he’s a viking ghost? 🙂

I laughed so hard I snorted a few times. Not my most ladylike moment, but it couldn’t be helped.
Wow, that viking helmet..couldn’t they have tried to make it better, sheesh
A recent post from blodeuedd..Review- No Cure for the Broken Hearted – Kenneth Roseberg
*applause* Brava brava! *whistles* Huzzah! Praise and accolades, for that was surely a masterful performance!
DAG! I’ve seen this guy all over the place. And you posted some covers I haven’t seen, yet!! Love these Monday posts!!!
I bow to your awesome storytelling prowess. This was truly an epic and veeeeeery surprising tale! 😀
A recent post from Bronwyn Green..Someone Damn Special
O.O *blink blink*
Is that the longest one yet? And wow, that black hair. Why do they always mess with the hair? Aren’t there enough stock photos out there with dark hair to choose from? *scratches head*
Viking helmet made me snort coffee.

And many thanks to everyone whoâ€™s been sending me covers!
We can enable the Misadventures? YES!
And…the cover of Angel’s Fire Demon’s Blood. Have they…enhanced certain…um….parts of Candy Cane’s anatomy?

Wow. There are multiple lessons in what not to do for PhotoShop here. My eyeballs bleed!
A recent post from Seanna Lea..10 Tuesday family edition
*is in awe* 1) He’s real. 2) He has website. 3) Good Lord, you tracked him down. He had quite a few interesting things to say on his website. Appreciate the opportunity to go beyond the cover.
(Oooh, Lookee – a new blog post idea *wink*)

It’s an epic version of Misadventures! And screw the viking helmet, I snorted over the Sheik head gear!

Hee, I’ve missed these. But I *think* I’m back to blog-reading now. At least for a few weeks. 😉
