Greek model Alexis Papas who stars in the new Davidoff Hot Water campaign is one of those men.
He exudes a certain quality.
And well... very little is known about the model. He works for Ford Models Europe -- Homme and is 6' 2" with brown hair and green eyes. He wears size 11 1/2 shoes.
Or at least that I could discover...in my limited time. But inspiration does not mean you have to know that much about him. He's Greek. He has high cheek bones and broad shoulders. He stars in an incredibly hot advertising campaign.
And so after hearing about him from Judy Jarvie, I let Kate Hardy know who happened to share him with Heidi Rice and other MH authors.
The Davidoff Hot Water commerical should be required viewing for anyone interested in writing for series romance or indeed studying sexual tension. There is a certain chemistry between the couple. The female model is Alyssa Miller btw.
But there is something about his eyes that reminds me of the early Presents novels that I used to read as a teenager.
And if you have not had enough pictures of Alexis Papas, here are some more for you to research:
If anyone knows more, I'd be delighted to hear...
