Today I want to talk about something I think we ALL love: Alpha Males. Now, I have a confession to make, I didn't start reading romances until about four years ago. At that time I was a stay at home mom for the first time, living in a new city, in a new state. I was lonely and honestly, my reading helped me through that hard time in my life. I went from a town where I knew everyone, to a place where I knew no one so I found my friends (and fantasies) within the pages of the books I read.
Anyway, I digress. Back to the topic at hand. Before I started reading romance or erotic romance I never thought the Alpha thing would do it for me. I don't know why. I mean, my hubby is alpha in a way. Not completely but he isn't beta either. I guess he kind of falls in that in between category, if there is one. So I guess in some ways I didn't have a lot of experience with those completely alpha men that I now adore. I love my men cocky, self-assured, and possessive. I mean, I don't want him to be a jerk. I don't want him to think he owns the woman or I don't want him to try and run her life but I do want him to want to protect her, even if she can protect herself. I like my men, manly. I want him to know what he wants and have no problem with admitting it, especially when it is the heroine who he wants.
*sigh* So sexy.
Do you like Alpha males? Who are some of your favorite alphas you've either read or written?
