What makes an alpha male so compelling? Why can’t we get enough of them? Here’s my list of must haves in an alpha.
- A good alpha is damaged but revived by love.
- Powerful and driven by adrenaline.
- He embraces risk but not foolhardiness.
- A hunter, once he catches the scent of his woman, he puts down his stake, declares ownership and never lets go.
- Supremely confident, he reveres and respects the power of his woman, wanting her to be all she can be.
- Fierce and gentle, in bed and out.
That’s how I like to read him… favorites include John Matthew in J.R. Ward’s Brotherhood of the Black Dagger, Bones in Jeaniene Frost’s Kat and Bones series and Kane Tyler and Seth Lawrence in Lora Leigh’s Breed Series…and that’s how I like to write him. Cullen McMahan, the shifter in my paranormal romance Fires of Justice is all that and a bag of chips.
On my blog, one lucky commenter will win one ecopy of my book Fires of Justice. I’m not going to ask you to tell me your favorite alpha. Instead, I want to know what characteristics in the heroine bring out the best in an alpha. Here’s my take–bravery and/or fearlessness. Alpha’s may be protective, but they respect courage and respond to women who give as good as they get. Note all my favorite males have seriously kickass ladies. What do you think? Don’t forget to leave your e-mail.

Fires of Justice Book Blurb
Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.
Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.
