This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre.
The genre here, by my definition, is a series with covers where Guys Lost Their Shirts. These are the ones which came to mind. I enjoyed some more than others and I have not read all of these series. The team helped me with this one too.
Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities. I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.
My Guys Who Lost Their Shirts series are (in no particular order):
Cobra Elite Off Campus Alien Mate
by Pamela Clare by Elle Kennedy by Cara Bristol
Hard Ink Gideon’s Riders Spindle Cove
by Laura Kaye by Kit Rocha by Tessa Dare

Favorite shirtless guys, theres so many ! Jamie Fraser in Outlander, Jean Claude in Anita Blake series by Laurell Hamilton, Dax from Alison Kent’s Dalton Gang series, Shane and Ilya from Game Changers by Rachel Reid , Roake from Eve Dallas by JD Robb’s Death series….just to off the top of my head.
Laura, while I would definitely love to see some of these guys lose their shirts, we were going for series with covers with no shirts. 🙂
I’ve got a couple more in the historical romance column that are just wonderful. Victorian Rebels by Kerrigan Brynne is awesome! You’d love it, Anne, as it’s a bit darker with lots of action and intrigue. Another one of my favorites is The Lairds Most Likely by Anna Campbell, one of my favorite historical romance authors. This one is set in Scotland, which just sweetens the pot.
I’m not much for historical romance but I’ll check out those covers. When I am in the mood, I know you are the best source for a recommendation. You never steer me wrong.
Let’s see what I can add… Christina Hovland’s Mile High series, Anna Hackett’s Gladiator series, JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Colleen Gleason’s Heroes of New Vegas, Jay Crownover’s Loveless, Texas, Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld, Amy Jarecki’s highlander, Vonda Sinclair’s highlanders.
YES! The series I know, of the ones you mention, have covers that are shirtless joys!
Hard Ink is intriguing. Thanks.
I love that series. I listened to it on audio from the library. It’s fantastic.
I’m a fan of Pamela Clare and Laura Kaye; the others are less appealing. I’m drawing a blank on books with shirtless covers as I don’t pay that much attention. Fun idea though!
We thought it was fun! It was something different than the usual genre favorites.
The Off Campus series is my favorite–but only because I haven’t read any of the others! 🙂
I’ve read and enjoyed that one!
Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series, Donna Grant’s Dark Kings series, and Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series
I have yet to read any of these but I enjoy Rebecca Zanetti. They all seem to have a good representation of shirtless covers though!
There are so many favorite shirtless guy covers I love. Some of my favorites are Breaking Point by Pamela Clare, Never Love A Highlander by Maya Banks, Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost, Wed To a Highland Warrior by Donna Fletcher, Ride Wild by Laura Kaye, The Outlaw Viking by Sandra Hill
Those are some great ones! We were trying for a whole series of covers here and it was fun to choose.
Love that theme..’guy lost their shirt’. ‘Beautiful bastard series comes to mind when I think of romance novels . it’s funny they’re either overly dressed or the opposite
We thought this was hilarious when we came up with it instead of a genre of series, and certainly fun to look at the contenders.
Yummy! LOL I had to go with Cobra Elite. So pretty:)
The books are great too. Pamela Clare is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors.
OMG – this is a hilarious sub-genre! I feel like we don’t see many man-chest covers any more. I remember one of my favorites (both the book and how the author made fun of her cover) is The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook. He doesn’t have on a shirt, but he does have on a jacket that is left open! haha
We try to have fun with this monthly giveaway. I was trying to think of a romance one for May and tropes don’t work because generally an entire series won’t be friends to lovers or fake girlfriend or that sort of thing. But this came to mind as I’ve seen something similar as a bookstore joke. I’ve been excited about it for a couple months. I like that we got multiple genres here too.
I like the Lost Kings MC series by Autumn Jones Lake!
I don’t know that series. I’ll have to check it out! Thanks for visiting.
What a surprise to see Alien Mate included. Thank you!
We’ve been a fan of your books and we like to include many genres in our little genre meme. It’s tricky so we like that. And they have lost their shirts!
