Alpha Male Blog Hop

by Rue Allyn

The Widow's Revenge, Erotic, Novel, Book, Author, Rue Allyn,Off Limits Cover Art“What does it take 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?  What do we love about Alpha Males?”

What makes a male an Alpha?  I believe a combination of strength of purpose, intelligence and physical attractiveness is the answer.  Just take a look at Alec Carter, hero of The Widow’s Revenge.  As the billionaire CEO of a multi-national conglomerate, he’s not your average joe.  But he’s also not a hard charging, warrior who deals with danger on a daily basis.  He is definitely a very determined man.  Once he encounters Maggie he knows what he wants and makes certain he gets it.  He also makes certain that Maggie is happy with the result.

The same is true of Senior Chief Hank O’Mara, hero of Off Limits my first militaryromance.  Hank’s plans for his life change when he meets Lt. Bethany Morton.  As an officer she’s Off Limits to an enlisted man.  But once Hank makes up his mind that Bethany is what he wants, nothing can keep him from her.  If you’d like more about these two Alpha males you can check them out via these links, The Widow’s Revenge, Off Limits. 

I can’t wait to find out what you think about Alpha males, so please leave a comment.

I love alpha males who aren’t afraid of strong women.
My favorite alpha male is more like a family of them…The Mackenzie’s created by Linda Howard are my favorite ones…but I also love the Doms in Cherise Sinclair’s Shadowlands series.

I agree with Qwillia, I like strong males but I like their females to be strong and confident as well. I enjoy it most when their relationship is a balanced give and take. Thank you for the giveaway.

i agree with qwillia and elf on what an alpha male should be

An alpha male needs to be strong, handsome, forceful, and yet also tender and gentle in intimate moments with the heroine, unless she wants something…more.

Yvette October 20, 2012 at 1:26 pm

I love alpha males who are possessive yet tender.

Alpha males, for me, are strong, determined, loyal, compassionate, honest, and have something in their past that made them into the male they are today.

I think an alpha needs to have a “take charge” attitude and the willingness to fight for what they want.

Thanks for participating in the hop!

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!

I love my Alpha Males. They keep me coming back for more.
I Love that they are strong, loyal, confident, and how protective they are of their woman even when they KNOW she can kick some major ass.
My favorite “Alpha Male” is Smitty from Shelly Laurenston’s The Beast In Him”. He is a real laid back kind of alpha male until you threaten someone he cares about. Then all bets are off and that BEAST comes out to kick ass.
Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.
