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:

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.

Thanks for dropping in on this stop of the Alpha Male Hop. I’m giving away 3 copies of Forsaking the Prize. Please leave a meaningful comment to enter the draw. “What traits do you like in your man?”

Update: Sorry folks, the blog hop on my site has closed. Winners will be announced tomorrow 9am Australian EST

I like a take charge personality. A man who is not afraid to be who they are and who fights for what he wants.

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!

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!

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. 🙂
