A Romance Cover Artist With Style
Readers of Kensington’s Zebra romances should be familiar with the work of Robert Sabin. His dashing heroes had piercing gazes and strong, sculpted physiques. The beautiful heroines embraced them as the wind blew through their long, flowing hair. The couple could embrace among stunning land–or sea–scapes that were sure to dazzle the eyes.
