Over on the Books with Heart Facebook page, we polled your favourite torsos from our Twelve Torsos of Christmas campaign. Heartie Stacey has tallied every vote, so read on for the countdown to the best bod of #blissmas!

Hot Cowboy Nights

Ranked #12

Kicking things off, this cowboy’s shirted bod did not set your hearts on fire, so in last place on our best bod of #blissmas is HOT COWBOY NIGHTS. (Some Hearties are thoroughly unsurprised by this, but I am all for a man in a white singlet. Sue me.)

 

 

 

 



 

The Scot's BrideRanked #11

We were definitely surprised by this though! Perhaps he’s no Jamie Fraser, but not even his sword got your attention. Sitting in eleventh spot is THE SCOT’S BRIDE by Paula Quinn.

 

 

 

 






Third BaseRanked #10

Okay let’s be real, THIRD BASE isn’t quite a home run, but still made it into your Top 10 Torsos!


 

 

 

 


 

 

Ruin and RuleRanked #9

Pepper Winters’ Pure Corruption MC series opener RUIN & RULE – the only reverse torso (yeah I mean back) on the list – takes out ninth place.


 

 

 

 


 

Return of the Bad Boy

Ranked #8

This guitar-wielding rockstar caught your attention, but lost his round by one vote! Coming in at number eight is THE RETURN OF THE BAD BOY.


 

 

 

 

 

 


 

The Lost Vampire

Ranked #7

Taking out seventh place, THE LOST VAMPIRE is so ripped we’re starting to think he might be photoshopped…

 

 

 

 




 

Dare to Run

Ranked #6

You didn’t DARE TO RUN from this reformed crim or his A+ body art (don’t @ me, that was cringe at its finest), and he’s made it to spot number six.


 

 

 

 


 

Unwrapped

Ranked #5

We thought this naughty Christmas gift might take out top place, but your votes got UNWRAPPED to the Top 5, so we’re not too mad at you.


 

 

 

 

 


 

ClaimedRanked #4

These post-apocalyptic outlaw abs got us like whoa. In fourth place in our torso poll, Elle Kennedy’s CLAIMED.

 

 

 




 



The Perfect PlayRanked #3

It’s a touchdown for THE PERFECT PLAY, which made it into your Top 3 Torsos!

 

 

 








Paradise RoadRanked #2

Taking out the second best bod of #blissmas is PARADISE ROAD by our very own CJ Duggan.


 

 

 

 

 


 

Bastard

Ranked #1 !!!!

And finally, with thunderous 219 votes, and the clear favourite from round one, home-grown hero J.L. Perry’s BASTARD is your favourite #blissmas torso!

Thanks for voting, Hearties.

As the Publishing Assistant for the Australian Publishing team, most of my brainspace and TBR pile is full-to-the-brim with titles from Hachette’s local list. Since home is Maroons territory, you’ll find me shouting about Queensland authors with a smidge of extra pride at @staceyclairrr, but I’m also prone to blithering about films, feminism, and other f-words too. Get on my good side with a Star Wars or Seinfeld reference, a jar of peanut butter or a great/terrible joke.
