The Alpha Male Blog Hop & Giveaway!!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make an Alpha Male? Is it the way he looks? His dark and stormy eyes, the way his body moves, the way he...well, I'll leave that last part up to you. What about the way he acts? Or treats his heroine?

  1. I love alpha males because they take charge, kick ass and look great while doing it! Just their commanding presence in a scene gives me the chills!
    I can't just pick one so my favorite alpha males are Bones from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series and Barrons from Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Both are similar and different in so many ways but have the same stubborness and raw animal magnetism that defines them as alphas.
    Thanks for the awesome hope and for the chance to win!

  2. I love alpha males because they are strong and protective and love with everything they have.

  3. Love alpha males for their attitude and silent but strong personality. They give the heroine a feeling of being protected, controlled, dominated and more importantly wanted and loved.

  4. Such a fun idea for a hop. Lots of interesting takes on the alpha male.

  5. I love an alpha hero who isn't afraid of a strong female. My favorite alphas are Linda Howards' Mackenzies...yummy. And Cherise Sinclair's Doms from her Shadowlands series.

    1. OMG, YES on the Mackenzies! Actually, so many of LH's heroes qualify. But Dane Hollister is one of my very fav's...the first time he meets Marlie is forever stuck in my mind. And LMR's heroes are very much along the same lines, which makes me love them so much. It's that first MINE instinct they have towards a female that just grabs you at a gut level, I think!

  6. I love how arrogant and possessive alpha males are and also how sweet and soft they can be too!

  7. I love alpha males. They are my favorite subject!

  8. I like alpha males best because they make great heroes. It has to be their strength, confidence and protectiveness that appeals to me.


  9. I love alpha males because they are possessive yet tender. I also follow.

  10. I'd be happy to return to give my thoughts if I win.
    I love that Alpha Males are as fun to read about as they are to write about!

  11. Hey There,

    Doing the Alpha Male blog hop….oh yeah! I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! A perfect opportunity to meet new authors! It’s always fun trying to visit as many sites as possible!

    I love alpha heroes who are take charge men! They are loyal, loving and caring men. They usually have sexy looks, brains, money and a commanding presence that draws people. When they find their mates and fall in love they will move heaven and earth to stake their claim. This is exciting to watch even when they are not sure why they have to have or be with this particular person. An awesome love dance! It’s definitely addicting to read.

    If I win or not I would be happy to share my thoughts about either book!

    Thanks for the opportunity to meet you, explore your site and win some great prizes.

  12. Oh, yeah. It's like they're hard asses w/ everyone in life except their woman...and for her, they're marshmallows on the inside. I <3 that!

  13. I love Alphas, because I need someone as confident and dominant as me to be an equal in our relationship - I hate the feeling as if partner is less powerful than me and cannot make it without me.

    My favourite Alpha male is Gabriel from Annette Curtis Klause's Blood and Chocolate, because he's strong, confident and willing to fight for what he wants.

    Thanks for doing this!

    Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It's all in the heart.....alpha males are the best!

    Jack Gordon from Liz Crowe's REALTOR series rocks!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!
