Victor Gadino: A Mysterious Artist

For all romance fans, the name of Victor Gadino maybe says nothing, but he is the cover artist for some of the most famous romance savage covers like Prisoner of My Desire (just the title!) of Johanna Lindsey and Lord of the Wolves by Heather Graham. But what probably most of the romance readers don't know, is that Victor Gadino is also the cover artist for the first novels by Gordon Merrick, like The Quirk. Plus he is also a very appreciated artist for movie posters and collectible items related to the movie industry. Victor Gadino is also a gay themed artist, hosted in important Gay Art Foundations.
