Alpha males. Love them. Hate them. Want them. They don't even have to be handsome, though that helps. I like the rugged, tough looking alpha male. Body well defined and hard as a rock. Big and mean, the kind of man who takes charge of any situation, and knows how to handle himself. The kind who loves and protects his woman with his life. His soul. 

As a rule I like tall, dark and handsome. But with some kind of flaw. No one is perfect. It can be physical or mental. Something either he, or the heroine will have to overcome before they can confess their love. Don't get me wrong, my heroines aren't superficial. A man's outward scars won't keep her from loving him. If anything she's drawn to him all the more. She wants to discover his secrets, and help him become whole again. Of course, he fights her every step of the way:)

I also like heroes in a uniform. Because let's face it, they are heroes. 

There are over 200 participating authors on this hop and every one is giving away a prize. That's on top of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grand prizes listed below. So make sure you visit every one's blog and leave your email address with your comments.  Each author is responsible for notifying their winner. Carrie Ann at Carrie Ann's Blog Hops will notify the grand prize winners. I'm giving away a download of one of my books, winner's choice. Just answer the following question.

If you were going to a Halloween party, what costume would you wear?

Have fun everyone and good luck!

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $130 Amazon or B&N Gift Card

I would have to be a witch. I have one on a weather vane on my house.

Raonaid Luckwell said...

Actually stole my sons's cowl from last year's costume because according to him it looked druidy. So I would dress up as a druid.

If I could find someone who was good with costuming creation I would love to dress as a Hawkbrother. (Mercedes Lackeys Valdemar for those that know her.)

One year I attempted a drow. * Sighs * Alas people thought I was a witch. I had the spider jewelry (D&D), the dress, bought the white haired wig and painted my body black and the ears.

Renald said...

A skull face witch. The witch's face is painted to look like a skull face. Then some glow in the dark paint helps the face to stand out, spooky.

:-0 DebP

Jane said...

I really loved all the superhero movies this summer, so maybe I'll go as the Black Widow or Catwoman

Teresa K. said...

I'm into the historical romances. My favorite period is the Elizabethan era and Tudor era. When I go to conferences where we dress up I go as a Tudor Aristocrat. I have some of the most beautiful gowns and jewelry that goes with the period.

Happy Halloween & Trick or Treat:)

Kelsey Summer said...

I'll be going as a dominatrix, which, if you knew me is amusing since I'm as submissive as they come.


joye said...

I would go as a pirate-loved the makeup on Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow and his clothes i could probably get at a Goodwill shop. Also, I plan on saying "Arg" at the party I will be attending.

joye said...

oops left off my addy:

Leni said...

I'd dress up as a goddess and have fun with the outfit, hair, and makeup.

Thanks for the giveaway,

Elizabeth Gray

Rhonda D said...

Mari said...

i'm not going this year but one of my favorite costumes that I made for a group of 5 of my girlfriends was bumblebees. If I could get a few people together I think I'd do it again.It was pretty easy and cute!

Belinda said...

I love ballroom dancing so I would go as a pro salsa dancer! It would be such fun!

Doing the Alpha Male blog hop….oh yeah! I‘m excited to be a part of this hop! With 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 sexy 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 explore your site and win some great prizes.

Catherine Lee said...

I, too, like tall, dark, and ruggedly handsome...with a flaw. YUM.

I have a stereotypical librarian costume (gray bun, glasses on a chain, sensible shoes)...which is funny because I'm a librarian. I also have a Raggedy Ann costume.

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!

If I were going to a costume party, I would go as Darth Vader.

If my character, Xavier, were going, he might go as Aquaman. If Heath were going, he would go as Iron Man (and yes, Tony Stark would be both impressed and worried by how authentic the costume would be).

Molly said...

A dominatrix for sure!!

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!

Jack Gordon from Liz Crowe's REALTOR series rocks!

Thanks for participating in the hop!
