Alpha Male Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Alpha Male Blog Hop!  Isn’t it fun reading what all of these authors think about alpha males?

My take?  They are hot!  In romance novels, the Alpha Males are leaders, they are dominant and strong.  Alpha males stand apart from other men.  They are more capable and more successful.  But that doesn’t mean they aren’t flawed…  And in need of love.

Starting Friday the 19th 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.  I’m giving away a $20 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner!

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!










Here’s one of my alpha males:

Damien From Angel’s Assassin


Angel's Assassin - medieval romance novel by Laurel O'DonnellAn Alpha Male Blog Hop?  I laughed at this.  I guess you could consider me an alpha male.  I’ve lived my life alone, depending on no one but myself.

I’m Damien from Laurel O’Donnell’s Angel’s Assassin.  I’m an assassin.  I’ve killed without remorse, because my master ordered me to.  Men, women, children.  I lived life in darkness.  Alone.  Unworthy and unwanting of love.  Nothing mattered to me.  You can’t understand how dark I was, how lost.  No one was safe from my blade.  Until my master ordered me to kill Aurora of Acquitaine.  She was so beautiful and so good.  She was kind to everyone, even me.  And she saw things in me, honor, loyalty…  Qualities I possessed only when she was around.

I know you can’t understand how life was for me before Aurora came into my life.  But maybe this scene from Angel’s Assassin can give you a glimpse.  Prologue from Angel’s Assassin

I don’t ask for your forgiveness.  I just want you to realize that I’m changed now.  I love Aurora.  And, in loving her, I’ve found my redemption.

Check out my journey in the book Angel’s Assassin.

    • Hi Laurel,

      Doing the Alpha Male blog hop! 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! I’m not talking about obnoxious bullies! They are loyal, loving, caring and protective.. They 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.

      I’m liking Angel’s Assassin. I like that Damien makes no apology for his past. It’s apart of who he is. His love for Aurora changed him. So cool!
      Also, I like your first time vistors page. Very creative and useful feature.

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

  • Commenting here! 😉

    I love Alpha men, because I need someone as confident and dominant as me to have an equal relationship – I hate the feeling that my 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.

  • Love reading about the strong, confident alpha, with that dark edge who will do whatever he has to to protect the one he loves.

  • Damien seems to be such a great character! And he sounds a little bit sarcastic. I like that 🙂

  • 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).

  • I just got The Bride and The Brute, can’t wait to read it. I like the sound of Angel’s Assassin too, Damien sounds like my type of Alpha as well.


  • 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!

    You have some great Alpha Males in your books. I loved Bryce from The Angel and the Prince. I love all the problems that Taylor gives Shane in A Knight of Honor.

  • Jack Gordon from Liz Crowe’s REALTOR series rocks!

    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!

    awesome blog hop!

  • Alpha’s have definite sex appeal and while I may want to read, watch, and fantasize about them, beta’s hold the place in my relationships. I like to wear the pants in the family so therefore, alphas seem like too much work! My favorite fictional alpha is Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries. As well as being strong, handsome, determined, and confident, I just love his snarky sense of humor! My favorite real life alpha is my gorgeous, loyal, and loving four pound Pomeranian, Cosmos. 🙂
    Thanks so much for being a part of the this blog hop.. While it is my first, it definitely will not be my last!
    Best wishes,

  • I love them all.. in the end they are man enough to stand up for themselves, let their confidence, protective nature, and determination shine through and save the day.
    Thanks for being part of the blog hop and for your giveaway
    Best wishes and continued success

  • Thanks for sharing the post and being a part of the hop 😉

    There is so many alphas that I could name but I would it take all day to name
    Like when an Alpha is strong, caring, determined (willingness to get what he desire no matter what…) charming, and creative 🙂

  • I like alphas and their protectiveness. I like Zsadist.
