Who wants an Alpha Male?

Alpha males are often described as confident, attractive and wealthy. My latest hero, Tobias Randall, has the first two in spades, the latter he lacks. He’s had a hard life so money is in short supply but does that preclude him from the title of Alpha Male? Are they born or made?

Other traits of an Alpha male:

* comfortable with himself
* passionate
* problem solver
* physically fit
* witty
* not afraid to admit he was wrong

My Tobias fits that description to perfection. He’s alpha male enough for me. See what you think:

Who wants an Alpha Male?

The Blurb:

Abducted at fourteen and sent away to sea, rough and ready sailor Tobias Randall endured exile and cruelty only to have his plans for revenge crumble. He may have made a terrible first impression upon his return to Romsey Abbey, but he has a plan to reclaim his place—he’ll marry quickly and marry a woman of wealth. Yet the perils of life at sea are nothing compared to the danger of attempting polite conversation with a proper lady.

Blythe, Lady Venables, may be revered as a faithful, proper widow, but a cruel misunderstanding has placed her sanity in doubt. Determined to clear her name, she forms an uneasy truce with the wildest Randall of all, Tobias—a man shamelessly willing to seduce her—to uncover the mystery plaguing Romsey Abbey. With doubts and fears against them, Tobias and Blythe each venture into uncharted territory – love and scandal.

  1. I like a hero who is confident and thoughtful. He must be strong but also show a sensitive side.

  2. I like a man that is confident, but that can show a sensitive side too..and one that knows how to treat ya like a woman 🙂

    thanks for the hoppin fun !

  3. 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.


    I like strong, self-assured, intelligent, respectful men.

  4. Hi Heather!

    I know exactly what I like in a man and fortunately my husband of 42 years has them!

    I want a man that know what he believes in and has a strong personality. I want his “caring side” to be one of helping out without being asked and showing me by doing and not just by buying me things. I want him to challenge me and to question my choices but to also listen to my reasons and accept that I definately have a mind and opinion of my own.

    Posessions are a passing fancy while a caring helpmate last for ever!


  5. I think a sense of humor is the most important thing. I love to laugh and I have to be with someone that can laugh along with me.

  6. I like a man who is funny, loyal, caring, sensitive, sarcastic, and romantic. Unfortunately finding someone like that in real life isn’t as easy as it is in a book. 🙂 In real life I go for the beta’s since I am more alpha and like to be in charge. 🙂
    Thanks for joining in the blog hop. I am loving it!

  7. 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!

  17. I like a man who is smart, loyal, strong and good at sensing what others are feeling even when they aren’t expressing it properly~


  18. 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!
