Alpha Male Blog Hop! - Get you some!



Okay, okay. So I admit to being stuck on the Turtle Man lately. Definitely not in the "alpha" male way, however. Just in the way one has a fascination for anyone who picks up "varmints" with their bare hands.

Right, so the moral of that story - Live Action! Obviously you're here for the Alpha Male Blog Hop, which I'm excited to be a part of. Who doesn't like those hard, rippling abs just begging for our touch, or that stern knit brow set over deep, intense eyes. Whether he's gun-toting, sword-wielding, or just plain sharp-tongued. We love 'em. So what does it take to make your perfect alpha? Does the alpha male of your dreams ooze authority and strength? Is he a surly bastard with a scowling visage 99% of the time?

So, here we are, folks. You tell me what it takes to be your dream alpha male.

I'll have a rafflecopter set up for the giveaway on my blog, which I'm offering a $10 Amazon GC and 2 - $5 Amazon GCs. Wish I had thought to get a couple stacks of random books ready to offer also. Alas, the work week was crappy. But I'm sure I'll have another giveaway later. In the meantime, be sure to fill out the rafflecopter to be eligible to enter to win on my blog.

**You MUST include your email address with your comments to be eligible for the Alpha Male Blog Hop Grand Prizes**, which are:

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $130 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: The following Swag Pack!
(The Swag Pack is only limited to commenters in the US. Sorry international commenters. Never fear, you're still eligible for the 1st and 2nd prizes though.)
Now would you just look at that mug! I know you want to win it!
Be sure to stop by all the other wonderful blogs participating in the giveaway, which means over 200 chances at prizes and multiple entries for the grand prizes. The Hop will last from October 19th at 10am EST until October 22nd at 11:59pm EST. Good luck to all!

  2. Greetings,

    Doing the Alpha Male blog hop….oh yeah! I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! Wow, 200+ authors---a perfect opportunity to meet new authors! It’s always fun trying to visit as many sites as possible.

    I love alpha heroes who are take charge men! They are loyal, loving and caring men. They usually have looks, brains, money and a commanding presence that draws people. When they find their mates and fall in love they will move heaven and earth to stake their claim. This is exciting to watch even when they are not sure why they have to have or be with this particular person. An awesome love dance! It’s definitely addicting to read.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some great prizes.

  15. You know what makes an alpha male to me? A man who doesn't care about being cool or the top dog or the strongest, fastest. Oh and frowning doesn't mean a guy is an alpha--just means the guy is grumpy and needs an attitude adjustment, lololololololol.

    An alpha male isn't a guy who has to be in charge of everything from money to how the douse is decorated.

    There are all types of alpha males and descriptions for A.M's, but one thing that makes a man top F-in dog in my book--books-- is a man who truly knows how to love and knows how to commit.

  45. Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!

  46. To me the perfect alpha male isn't about looks or body type, but personality. He should be commanding, emotionally strong, protective, intelligent, and he should have a soft spot for his woman, family and animals.

  55. Alpha males are the best….strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ol’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk filthy, but their eyes portray their sensitive sweet. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It's all in the heart.....alpha males are the best!
