Their on-screen and rumoured off screen romance has kept fans gripped for three blood curdling seasons on U.S. television.
And now the stars of The Vampire Dairies Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev, and Ian Somerhalder have added fuel to the fire by stripping off for a set of new sexy magazine covers together.
The three Entertainment Weekly covers feature the trio in various states of undress, with one distinctive photograph showing the them clad in red sheets, with Paul and Ian about to kiss Nina who is just wearing a black lacy bra.

Other shots feature Nina, 23, and Ian, 33, striking a sultry pose together, with just a white sheet to protect their modesty.
The magazine seeks to address the rumours of any real life romance between Nina and her leading men.
But the actors remain tight lipped, with Nina saying 'The rumour mills were "Is Nina with Ian or is Nina with Paul?"' There was a lot of speculation.'
'Nothing has been confirmed yet,' adds Ian.
Aptly, for a series which has revolved around the love triangle featuring Nina, Damon and his vampire brother Stefan (Paul), Nina also is pictured in an equally revealing pose with Paul.
Again wearing the racy black bra, she and the 29-year-old actor are shown with their arms wrapped around each other with just a black satin sheet.
