I could not resist giving out another Beefcake Bite.
Get a dose of this cover model, Sam Bond at Past the Print
As you all may know, today is an extremely special day here at PAST THE PRINT. Sam Bond, the sexy cover model on countless romance books, is here for his very first interview (when it comes to romance novels, that is.)
He's the spokesperson for MaxiMuscle, a body builder, and a former Gladiator named "Atlas." He's graced my cover for RÆLIKSEN, and will also grace the cover of THE FALL OF RAIN in December 2011. And now, he's giving us the opportunity to get to know the man behind the muscle on the covers. Please make welcome, Sam Bond.

Description from the amazon:
Mara, the daughter of an Irish clansman, was raised to believe the men of the North are heathens - murderous pagans without a moral bone in their bodies. Despite warnings of the Northmen's raids, and the growing threat of another incursion, Mara is continually drawn to her favorite place - the River Shannon.
Dægan Ræliksen, a wealthy chieftain from Norway's frozen fjords, secretly discovers Mara at the water's edge. He is charmed by her beauty and sensuous grace. As the days pass, his contentment with simply watching her grows thin. He can no longer deny his unabated desire for the young maiden. His search for a wife has ended.
However, Mara and Dægan come face-to-face in a time when Ireland is in turmoil - when every Irishman is being called up to fight against the Nordic foreigners. In these times of upheaval, how can Dægan make peace with Mara's father and acquire the woman he treasures? Furthermore, can Mara move past her fears and find the noble man within the savage?
