The Five Things I Love About Alpha Males

| | 1 comment

By Lisa Marie Rice, author of MIDNIGHT FIRE


Alpha Males are my favorite type of book boyfriend. It’s not just the rippling muscles or the ability to survive even the most dire circumstances. When I create my heroes, I always think of five things they MUST have…

  • STRENGTH – Who doesn’t love a man who’ll do anything to protect you…?

  • DETERMINATION – They never give up…and that is very, very good.

  • THE STARE – Once you’re in his range, you know he’ll make you weak at the knees.

  • CONFIDENCE – He’s no wallflower and he knows exactly when to turn on the charm.

  • SENSE OF HUMOR – He doesn’t take himself too seriously and he knows how to make you laugh. Very sexy, indeed.

What do you look for in an alpha hero?

Summer Redding thought the blindingly handsome jock who’d loved and left her years ago had died in the Washington Massacre. She grieved for her lost golden boy as the rest of the country mourned their dead—until she comes home to find a very alive Jack Delvaux waiting for her with a devastating secret that turns her life upside down.

No longer the carefree man he was in his youth, this Jack is dark, hard and dangerous; a fifteen-year veteran of the CIA hungry for answers…and hungry for her. The rich, good-looking charmer who broke her heart once before would have been easy to resist, but this man, this powerful man? Summer needs him, and he knows it.

When Jack’s mission uncovers evidence of government involvement in the Massacre—and plans for another attack—he’s primed for revenge. But he has more than vengeance to live for now, and when Summer’s life is threatened, it’s nearly Jack’s undoing. Someone taking shots at his woman? That’s a dead man walking.
