Full Moon Bites’ hop is to celebrate all of those sexy and dangerous Alpha heroes in books who make us pant and know how to protect their lady love (or male love)—even if that love can protect her or himself quite well without him! 😉 No matter what time period they are from—or even if they are human.
Alpha heroes are dangerous to even the most independent woman. There’s something sexy and still sweet about a man who has a nice balance between being an alpha and knowing when to let go of the helm and let a lady just be the independent woman she is. If he is a really good alpha something about him and his character promotes trust—and trust is definitely needed to give up any control. Whether it’s in the boardroom or the bedroom, the alpha cop, military man or firefighter trying to save the leading lady’s life, or the cowboy trying to win her heart, without trust being an alpha means nothing. I like when I find a book where the leading man has just the right mix that makes him an alpha worth swooning over.
One of my favorite Alphas can be found in Linda Howard’s Mr. Perfect. Sam Donovan is rough around the edges, but his confidence and dedication to doing the right thing is entirely sexy.
Another strong Alpha male that I liked is in Linda Howard’s Open Season. Chief Russo is an alpha male who isn’t the type to shy away from a challenge and Daisy Minor is definitely a challenge. Small towns, hot man in charge and plain Jane librarian makes for a fun and sexy read.
In celebration of the hop I would like for you to meet one of the alphas from my Men of Action series, Thomas McGregor–a serious alpha if ever there was one. Thomas is in search of the man who betrayed his military team—a betrayal which cost the life of everyone in his team and left him clinging to life. No matter how much time passes he won’t give up his search. His private investigation firm is doing well enough for him to turn down new assignments so that he can devote time to his mission, but when Thena Davis walks into his office bringing a perplexing mystery with her he can’t resist the beauty in front of him. Learning of the attempts on her life makes Thomas take a new direction with her case, one that involves keeping her safe; whether she wants him to or not is of no concern of his. What Thomas doesn’t realize is this independent and rambunctious woman is going to take a lot to tame. Can Thomas pursue his own vendetta while trying to solve Thena’s mystery and keep her alive? Find out in Secrets and Lies available now on:
