Blatant Objectification: Stuart Reardon

September 14, 2013

Romance novels rest on the well-muscled bedrock of hot protagonists.  In light of this, I would like to provide you with some fresh sources of inspiration, whether you are a romance writer, a romance reader or, like me, both--as well as a blatant objectifier of men.

So, as first in a series, here is Stuart Reardon, professional rugby player, English fitness model, and outspoken gay rights...um, outspeaker.

Holy chestplate, Batman!  Stuart Reardon.  Image from listal.com.

He's on the October 2013 cover of Gay Times under the absolutely fabulous tagline, "Scrum and Get It."  Here's an excerpt.
He loves the gays, hates Russia’s treatment of us and works with underprivileged kids. Rugby ace Stuart Reardon is like the Mother Theresa of Warrington - only with thighs that could crack a coconut under his wimple.
And here's the cover.

Oh, you want more, you say?  All right.

Hey, Stuart!  How about a roll in the hay? Image from listal.com.
