Bearded Beaus Cover Love

Happy Tuesday! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday was ‘Books That Defied My Expectations’ but I decided to go off topic and do a cover love post instead. And since World Beard Day was this past Saturday, how could I resist highlighting some of my recent fave bearded beaus on romance covers?!? Well, of course, I couldn’t … just like I couldn’t quite limit myself to ten. Something tells me though that no one will complain 😉

  1. What a fun idea! I might have to borrow it for a TTT at some point. It made me think of a lot of bearded men on covers, especially Penny Reid’s. I like the ones you chose. Although, I do wish they wouldn’t leave faces off of illustrated people. It weirds me out a bit.

  2. Pepper Basham is on several lists this week and is a name I’ve seen around before, but I haven’t read any of her books. I’ll have to look into her more. I also have 2 other Toni Shiloh books on my TBR and liked the one of hers I’ve read so far. I’m always up for Christmas-themed books to read in December, so I think I just found the first for my list this year.

  3. I like how you defined this week’s topic, and I agree with all these covers. I’m really excited to dive into that Fall series. So many good authors!!! And what a cute concept. I’m definitely ready for summer to be done!

    This is a great topic. I remember my grandma once saying she didn’t know “why anyone would want to kiss a man with whiskers” but I like the look of bearded men. You have some good selections but I still wish for facial features on the people. Those blank faces don’t do anything for me, even with beards. A few of my favorite bearded men covers are The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep, At Love’s Command by Karen Witemeyer (actually all of Hanger’s Horsemen series), The Reluctant Warrior by Mary Connealy, and A Cowboy for Keeps by Jody Hedlund. If I was more computer savvy, I’d include the cover photos.

  5. This is such a fun idea for a post! I’m just smiling so wide as I scroll through the covers. Now I want to make my own list! (Maybe for a next freebie post? XD)

    Great idea. And you’re right… I didn’t mind there were more than ten 😉

  6. Great books here! I’m still getting accustomed to the faceless cartoon people. I do love comedy, so I’ll need to check them out.

    My hero, Sam, is a little offended that he didn’t make the list. (Running to You–he’s pretty cute!)
