DANGEROUS ALPHA HEROES GIVEAWAY HOP


I am excited to be a part of this hop, hosted by Full Moon Bites. Hell, I love Blog Hops. It's a great chance to meet other fabulous peeps - bloggers and non - and give out goodies that celebrate our most favorite thing in the world...

The love of a good book.

And this blog hop is no exception. We are celebrating the Alpha Hero -- those sexy, dangerous heroes that make our toes curl, make us swoon and go weak in the knees, and wish we were the heroine of the story.

The Alpha man falls into any genre of romance:  Historical, Contemporary, Romantic Suspense, Paranormal, etc. But I tend to like Alpha a little gritty, a little dirty, and a LOT smexy. No matter what the genre.
And it 's not all about the rock hard 6-pack, ripped arms and the ability to shoot the bad guys with his glock. Nope. My favorite Alpha hero a vulnerable side. One that he doesn't show anyone. EVER. He is mysterious, sometimes a loner, and says things that make my ovaries stand to attention.

I have so many favorite Alpha heroes that it's just plain impossible to select just one. Unfortunately my wallet says I can only offer one goodie to one lucky commenter. So what do you think of my choice?





James "Dawg" Mackay has lusted after sweet Crista for years. Just as many as she's spent running from him-and from a dangerous attraction. But for Crista, running isn't an option anymore because Dawg's got a plan to get her and keep her. It's kind of low-down-but completely hot.





This blog hop runs from September 17 - September 24.

Contest Rules for my giveaway

* Must be a follower of my blog
* US residents only - no PO Box addresses please.

  11. My favorite alpha hero at the moment is Thanatos from Larissa Ione's Lords of Deliverance. He's lonely, a little tortured and innocent where women are concerned, but as a Horseman, he's not to be toyed with. Put all that together and you get one deadly hunk.

      What kind of book genre do you like most? What steam level do you like to read? Hmmmm...I'm trying to think of a good one for you that's like Sooki's Eric.
      Have you checked out Darynda Jones's Charley Davidson series? It's very humorous, not real steamy--and paranormal.
