Alpha Male Blog Hop


What is your favorite thing about Alpha Heroes? Well, we authors are ready to share our favorite Alpha Males, our favorite things about them, and everything sexy and heated about those Alpha Males you can think of. *wink* Starting on Friday and ending on Oct 22nd, over 200 Authors and Bloggers will share their favorite things about those sexy men we know and love.

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $130 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: The following Swag Pack!

Plus, I am having my own drawing for a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Just leave a comment to enter. Please include your email address in the body of your comment so I can send your prize! 



Ok, now that we've done all that, let's talk about Alpha Males. Have you ever had a conversation with a female friend where one or both of you said something like: 
 "I think he likes me, but how can I be sure?"
or 
"He said he'd call on Monday but didn't call until Wednesday, that's ok, right?" 
Or
"He's not flirting with her, he's just friendly." 
If so, you weren't talking about an Alpha Male. In my opinion, when an Alpha Male is with a woman, she knows it. And he makes sure that all the other Alphas (and Betas) know it too. 

In my latest release, Underwear Probation, Daisy and Reece are a married couple who practice Domestic Discipline. When Daisy has trouble remembering the rules, Reece ups the ante and declares a day of Underwear Probation---no underwear---so that the feel of her bare butt against the fabric of her skirt will remind her of the rules. In this scene, Reece adds another condition to the day. 


Reece pulled a small box from his pocket and held it out to Daisy.

Jewelry! Relief and excitement washed over her at the same time.

“Oh Reece,” she said and started to unwrap it. She caught herself before she untied the ribbon. “May I open it?”

Reece smiled. “Good girl. Yes, you may.”

The ribbon and wrapping paper were dispatched and Daisy eagerly removed the lid from the small box. She looked up at Reece with confusion, then down at the box.
Inside were two rings made of silver. They were too small for a finger.
“What are they?” Daisy was well-versed in the uses of all jewelry. Or so she thought.
“Nipple rings.”
An excited tingle moved through Daisy’s body. Last week at the gym, she had seen a woman wearing something like this. She was one of those show-offy types who pranced around the women’s locker room naked. She did have a great body, but the rings around her nipples caught Daisy’s attention. The right amount of pressure on her nipples could make Daisy come, so the idea of nipple rings was intriguing.
Of course, she hadn’t mentioned it to Reece. What would he have thought?
Apparently he liked the idea.
She held the two rings in the palm of her hand, then picked one up and squinted at it. “What does it say?”
“Those are my initials.”
“Initials?”
“I like to mark what’s mine.”

  3. Very true, the good thing about an Alpha is he isn't afraid to let you know where he stands. Thanks for the excerpt.

  7. 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.

  19. Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!

  21. Hi, Celeste,

    *grin* for the excerpt. To me, the Alpha treats his woman like a queen, and his family tops his list of priorities. He's take charge, reliable, funny and smart. No situation fazes him because he can fix any problem! :)

  39. I think the best thing about Alpha Males is that they aren’t threatened by strong females.
    If I went with favorite Alphas, not including the ones I write about, I’d have to pick all the Mackenzie men (and Mac) from Linda Howard’s Mackenzie series, then there’s the Doms in Cherise Sinclair’s Shadowland series (especially Master Sam).

  44. 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!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!
