Known for writing great characters, snappy dialogue, and unique and exhilarating stories, Sam is the award-winning author of 50+ books and has been writing for over a decade under several noms de plume. Here's her take on Alpha Males.
As the rabid sales of romances with strong alpha males show, women LOVE a strong and sexy alpha hero. But what about the alpha’s woman, doesn’t she have to be special too? I believe she does! Not necessarily in the way you might be thinking. An alpha’s mate doesn’t have to be the most beautiful woman in the world, but she’s beautiful to him. She’s not always model slim, without blemish, stronger or smarter than every other woman he knows, but the traits she does have speak directly to him. I think that’s what makes reading about alpha males so much fun! We can easily put ourselves in the role of the lucky alpha mate, imagining that our alpha would find us the sexiest, most tantalizing, and most deliciously infuriating woman he knows.
So, what kind of woman draws an Alpha male? I’m sure the answer to this question is as varied as the men who pursue them. But for the purposes of a great romance novel, there have to be certain parameters. I submit that the following list would suffice:
First of all, she has to be smart enough to find ways around his bossy, dominant personality. This means she has to be a pro at making him think it was his idea to do whatever it was she fully intended to do in the first place--even when it’s the exact opposite of what he actually wanted her to do.
Secondly, she has to be able to take care of herself during all those times she ignores him and goes off to take care of business by herself.
Thirdly, she needs to be willing to do whatever it takes to keep her man safe, because he’s gonna go marching off to sacrifice himself at the drop of a hat if he thinks it will save her...or some elderly person somewhere...or a child...or a puppy...a kitten... You get the drift.
And last, but definitely not least, she needs to have a healthy sexual appetite to keep her man happy. Because we all know the alpha male is hotter than a wood-burning stove in the desert and harder than the wood it burns. He has all that sexual energy that needs to be spent somewhere. (queue wildly waggling eyebrows)
Okay, that last thing isn’t really too difficult. I mean, who wouldn’t be ready to hit the mattresses if an alpha male crooked a finger in her direction? Which reminds me of one more, kind of important, trait a potential alpha mate needs to have. She can’t be too stupid to live.
Because if she does say no when he crooks his finger. She’s definitely TSTL.
Just sayin’!
A grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.
He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s a target, a creature of dark magic. His job is simple. Kill the target. Her goal is more complex. She must stay alive until she finds and destroys the source of death magic staining the twenty worlds. But the passion burning within them may be their undoing. It’s going to take an apocalyptic will to overcome the distraction their bodies are creating...and not lose themselves in the process.
