Every woman has probably read at least one romance novel in her life. And some simply can’t imagine their leisure without a thrilling love story. After all, it is so satisfying to immerse into a fascinating novel and escape from the routine and bustle of everyday life.

Even if no novel has ever been filmed, readers would still imagine what their characters look like. Paperback lovers always go for colorful covers with attractive men and women.

The name of Jason Baca may sound unfamiliar even to keen novel readers, but most of them would probably recognize his chiseled body from the covers. In his career, he has posed for more than 600 novels!

Jason was born on October 22, 1973 in California. Not much is known about his childhood and adolescence, but he appeared on the big screen the 90s. His most notable works include roles in the TV series Nash Bridges and the film I Know What You Did Last Summer.

The owner of the dream body later began to pose for top magazines, many of which are still popular: Men's Workout, Men's Fitness, InStyle Magazine, and others. He started doing novel covers in 2005 when he achieved almost perfect proportions and soon was considered one of the best in the business.

Over the years, Jason has been a vampire, highlander, cowboy, big heartthrob, and countless other characters. He explains his success by the desire to do everything in his power to deliver a quality product, not by a mere thirst for money and fame.

Baca has always been fascinated by impersonation. It was probably the motivation for his acting career. Although it didn’t work out, it was on the set that his modeling talent was discovered. It is noteworthy that Jason has always read the novels the covers of which he adorned: it's interesting for him to find out what the readers would see in him, and likes being a hero.

Besides acting and modeling, Baca used to have a “regular” office job and work out for at least one and a half hours 5-6 days a week. He has always eaten healthy. In real life, Jason is not like his characters at all: he is shy, slightly insecure, and a romantic. He has been married for years and considers his wife to be his biggest fan.

In 2019, it became known that Baca decided to retire from modeling at the age of 45. By that time, he had appeared on 635 covers, which will continue to please the eyes of readers of romantic novels and short stories.

There will no doubt be new and equally attractive male romance cover models. But this is poor consolation for his true fans, isn't it?
