Several readers have forwarded me an announcement from the Coffeetime Yahoo Group that cover model Rob Ashton passed away on August 26, 2007.

Rob Ashton was a Zebra cover model for many years, and was a Mr. Romance Cover Model in 1996.

Mr. Ashton was most notable here at SBTB for being the model for “White Wind,” which you can also see on the “Book Covers” section of his personal site.

He also appeared on the covers of:

You Belong to My Heart – Nan Ryan
Prince of Shadows – Susan Krinard
Love’s Legacy – Various
Captivated – Colleen Corbet
Merlin’s Legacy – Daughter of Fire – Quinn Tayler Evans
White Wind – Susan Edwards
Across a Moonlit Sea – Marsha Canham
Stardust of Yesterday – Lynn Kurland

Our condolences go out to Mr. Ashton’s friends and family.

    Very sad indeed. I don’t know if this is appropriate or not, but to me he was a ‘better’ Fabio.

    The man was gorgeous. I hope he went out partying hard, over indulging in sex, drugs, booze, and underage groupies of all genders.

    I know that is not reality but that’s how I would like to be remembered.

    I didn’t recognize him until I checked out the RT link, then I had an ‘aha’ moment.  Damn, he was a terrific looking guy.  That just stinks.  My sympathy goes out to his family. 

    Is it just me or have we lost a lot of people this summer?  *sigh*

    Oh how sad.

    He was the only cover model I actually liked looking at (and drooling over)and I had a friend that met him and she said he was really nice guy.

    So sad…
